Upon discovering that he is the holder of a winning lottery ticket, Earl is hit by a car and the ticket blows out of his hand as he lies unconscious in the street. While recovering in the hospital and watching television, Earl has a karmic epiphany, and sets out to right every wrong he has done...
She is afraid of snakes, and rape.
Life in Mexico
She said that she worked on a farm as a child, but was blindfolded on the way there. She also said that she was not allowed to drink from the local well because of the bodies ("Barn Burner"). She was nicknamed "Chupa Chups" by the children in her village, refering to her large head and small body which resembled a lollypop ("Sticks & Stones").
She claims to have once killed someone ("Mailbox"), and her brother killed her father saying "men don't like it when other men sleep with their moms" when she was helping Earl cross off slept with Ralph's mom from his List ("Van Hickey"). She likes the sound of bubble wrap as it reminds her of the shooting she heard as a child ("Born a Gamblin' Man").
She managed to escape to the US between December 1999 and January 2000. She was hidden in a box and given some bananas to eat and a newspaper, not intended for reading. When she arrived at the border, she was shot at by snipers, but not hit as many of her fellow immigrants were. As she crossed the border, she hid in the front of a car of a man with appropriate travel documents. She arrived in Camden County on January 1 2000 ("Y2K").
Life in America
Catalina started work at the Motel two years before Earl and Randy moved in. She also worked at Club Chubby as a dancer. She lost her virginity in a phone booth, which was a "foursome" that included Darnell, Patty and Kenny. They all agreed to keep it quiet. ("Earl and Joy's Anniversary")
Randy has called "dibs" on Catalina on at least three seperate occasions; On the Pilot, when she walks into the motel room, he calls dibs; on the flashback of when they had broken into the store on January 1, 2000, as she walks past, he calls dibs; and, when Earl is in a coma, the flashback of Earl having ruined his father and mother's vacation, when they go to the motel to buy marijuana, Randy sees Catalina and calls dibs again.
