"The Others: Mora (#1.13)" (2000)
Prof. Miles Ballard: Thee Old Hag myth is the one where people believed that, ah, witches or hags could assume various forms and ride around on people's chests while they were sleepin'.
Warren Day: Is that... something weird?
Prof. Miles Ballard: Yeah. Yeah, ah, and then they would suck the life out of them.

Dr. Mark Gabriel: Elmer, could these things be summoned or kept away?
[speaking of the Mora creatures]
Elmer Greentree: I suppose.
Dr. Mark Gabriel: I found two of these; each placed under the six-year-old girl's bed.
Elmer Greentree: Appears to be some sort of fetish.
Warren Day: People get off on those?
Prof. Miles Ballard: No, Warren, it's a tribal fetish. It's, ah, a charm used for mystical purposes.
Warren Day: Like my lucky sock?
[Warren pulls out an old sock from a pocket]
Prof. Miles Ballard: No, eh-eh-eh - that's okay. I hope that's not what you feel is mystical.

Prof. Miles Ballard: Well, it's a better explination than demons who lie in wait unable to cross sea salt.
