Dennis has him hold a bowl on the ceiling, claiming a leak sprung in the roof, Katie and Kristi also join in, faking out a spider in Dennis' hands before he throws it at Randy, causing him to drop the bowl ---- filled with water, on his head.

Randy arrives late to work once again, Dennis then shows him the sex tape of himself and Julie along with the mysterious invisible figure seen during the earthquake.

The day after Dennis sets up cameras around the house, they briefly talk with Julie and discuss Back to the Future, after hearing noises, they investigate the source to the closet in the master bedroom. Julie then bursts out of the closet with a monster mask, scaring them both as a prank.

On September 16th, 1988, Randy talks to Dennis about the urban legend 'Bloody Mary' while unloading boxes into the garage. Katie, who was learning how to skate with Julie nearby, asks to play Bloody Mary before being rebuffed.

Randy illegally checks out several books about the supernatural, they discuss the contents of the books and how the strange goings on started after Kristi started talking to Toby. Randy mentions the previously passed on knowledge that "it" feeds off fear.

The day after Lisa the babysitter leaves, Dennis and Randy review the footage of the ghost in the sheet and Lisa being blown in the face by an invisible force, Randy asks Dennis if he showed the footage to Julie, to which he responds he hasn't as it would mean Julie forcing him to take down the cameras.

On September 23rd, 1988, after Kristi mysteriously falls ill, Randy is called over to babysit Katie while Dennis and Julie take Kristi to the hospital.
