Ok this falls squarely into the “where the h*ll did this come from” category…
Monti was showing Elsa that she found a cross earring in her jewelry box. Elsa asked her “Where did you get the cross from? “I got it from the jewelry box” Monti said – “it wards off Jews.”
This is notable in that
1) I did not know that Monti knew the word “ward”, though she has been reading a lot about vampires and werewolves lately.
2) I didn’t realize that we had to repel the Jews, but apparently they are all around us!
