Synopsis
A contractor blackmails a dirty mayor to get his road plans approved by the town council. After greasing a few more palms, the plan is approved. Sure, there's a cemetery right where the road's going to go, but moving bodies costs too much. They decide to simply build right over the graves. But, while inspecting the progress of the roadwork, the mayor, councilors, and contractor find out that the dead will have the last word. The men are found in their car the next morning, squashed flat by a steamroller.

Synopsis
A man is suffering from a split-personality, and nothing seems able to cure him. Psychiatry doesn't help, and neither do drugs. In desperation, he visits a voodoo priest, who fashions a voodoo doll of his patient. The priest then plunges a needle into the "bad" side of the doll, hopefully "killing" the rift in the man's mind. It works, too! An unfortunate side-effect is that the left side of the man's body was also killed, and has become a rotting corpse.

Hank has quite a shock when he sees a giant pink blob descend upon one of his cattle and devour it. Then, Hank himself has to flee for his life. Desperate, he visits a friend of his, the scientist Willy. After listening intently to Hank's story, Willy theorizes that the creature is from the "fourth dimension". Willy uses a device to propel himself into the fourth dimension, where he hopes to determine the blob's weak point. Minutes later, the device explodes and Willy reappears. He's dead, with a look of horror frozen on his face. On the upside, the blob seems to have been killed, as well.

In a rage, Hannah shatters the statue and leaves. Roger frantically reassembles the statue and reverses the process, returning Sally to human form. Oops. It appears he missed a piece. Yuch.
