George & Wendy Show
Parker: “The aliens will talk to me for sure. They probably remember me from when I was abducted as a child.”
“You’re conversing with someone who’s afraid of wombat infestation in California while scooping dinosaur cat poop into a bag as a present for your dad. I don’t think any useless fact you have stored in your giant brain will make any of this OK.”
Wendy and George find themselves on a cow path in the middle of the night in Arizona: "When George Parker is driving and he says, 'This isn’t good,' it means you’re potentially about to experience a fiery death crash."...

"You should probably Google 'surviving Sasquatch attack' while you're lying in the fetal position waiting for a bear to eat your face off.”...

Wendy Parker details her personal history with firearms: "Be safe out there, and thank God you're an American, because I sure as hell do."
