George is bummed when she finds out that her parents are selling the home she grew up in. But things turn from bad to worse for her when her bicycle gets stolen, and at Happy Time she is suspected of stealing office supplies. George finally decides to embrace her bad side by claiming a red Mustang car from a guy that she reaps.

Meanwhile, Daisy goes on her assignment to the jewelry shop to reap the owner and to claim more crosses. Also, Mason sets out to prove to everyone that he is not drinking anymore.

Goof--When Rube is going to give his keys to George, Daisy has a cup in her right hand, at her lips, and is looking at George. Next frame, opposite angle, she has the cup in her left hand, at chest level, and is looking at Rube.

  • Position of Reggie's fork on her plate, as Joy fakes calling her.
  • When the guy at the mall dies he leaves a blood stain on Georgia's blue coat that goes from just above one of the top buttons all the way across to her left arm. Later, when she goes to the parking garage to take his car, the blood stain on her jacket is gone.
  • After the juice guy gets guillotined and dies, his 'body' is still visibly breathing and moving.
  • When Daisy goes to the antique store, she goes to the guy at the counter, Rusty, and starts to examine the crosses on the blue 'neck' display. As she does the cross that is highest on the 'neck' is laying on top of the other cross that is just a little lower than it. After Daisy asks Rusty if he is a collector the shot moves to be more behind Daisy and now the cross that was higher on the 'neck', which was laying slightly on top of the other one, is now not touching any of the other crosses that are on the display even though nobody moved it to allow for this to happen.

Trivia: When George and Mason are arguing about her stolen bike, Mason says, "You don't have to be so huffy about it." Huffy is a popular brand of bike. Mason's character has a habit of making unintentional puns like this.


What is life really like after death? George Lass finds out when a stray toilet seat from the MIR space station drops out of the sky and kills her. She is immediately recruited to become a Grim Reaper, an undead who collects souls of people about to die.
