Monsters Inside Me (OWN, 6 pm) A Virginia woman is attacked by a brain-eating parasite; a Midwestern farmer battles a parasite that cannot be killed; a New Yorker is infected with a deadly parasite.
Common thread? Parasite.

Wear a short skirt and move your hands around a lot, and they’ll never know you can’t sing.

That boy just ain’t right.

C’mon, Prentiss! You know how long a TV year is? Kids on soap operas have grown up, gone to college, and come back to boink every woman in town in one year!
Things are going soooooooo gooooooooood!

Sounds an awful lot like somebody else we know.
