An artist who's been working with a publisher for a year suffers from severe claustrophobia. His boss refers him to a psychiatrist who puts him under hypnosis and asks him to draw his earliest memories, but they only go back the one year that he's been working for the publisher. He hires a detective to do a background check, but he can only find documentation a year old. When he puts the artist under the deepest possible trance and demands he draw the earliest possible memory, he produces a drawing of a man lying in a casket.

Synopsis
A reckless driver enjoys being the 'road hog' so much he designs mirrors to magnify the expressions of his motorist victims. A hitchhiker berates him for his behavior and tells him someday you'll "meet a bigger hog than yourself." The man doubts this, as he considers himself the biggest. During the test run of his mirror system, he sees an immense hog just about to turn the corner. He swerves to miss it and runs into a tree, killing himself. Around the bend, a farmer picks up an ordinary pig that had wandered into the road and claims "That man must have really loved animals in order to die just to avoid hitting this pig."
