If wishes were horses, those wishes would all run away, shrieking and bucking, terrified of a great unseen evil. Welcome to Night Vale.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Cecil's line "You're obviously...hard...at work. Hard at work" was delivered while glaring at an audience member (or in some cases a group of audience members) who was cracking up at the obvious innuendo.
