EPISODE ONE (9/20/08)


Newly engaged couple Peggy (Kelsey Wedeen)
and Mike (Paul Byrne) as they unwittingly
begin their descent into hell.


At the motel after a beautiful morning of
fingering each other, just before the terror begins.


THE TERROR BEGINS!
They swerve to avoid a child in the
road, and Mike breaks his leg.


Little Mary Beth (Heather Klinke) will take Peggy to
the "other mommies," who are in the "Cave of Fire" -
but she can't tell Atticus and the tribe.


Meeting Mary Beth


Atticus (Peter Fluet) is told by the others (Sean Sweeney,
Brendan Patterson & Joe Fontz) that Mary Beth is coming
with more mommies.  "Yummy!"  shouts Atticus.
"Yummy yummy yummy in my tummy!"

EPISODE TWO (9/27/08)


A wounded Mike hikes off to find help.


Mary Beth has tricked Peggy into falling into a pit.
The others will never call her "Mary Barf" again!


Atticus forces Calpurnia (Sean Sweeney) to drop his britches.
Calpurnia has the weiner fuzz.  He's becoming a grown-up.
And what do they do with grown-ups?  KILL THEM.


Hack Tate (Bryan Krasner) stumbles through the
forest, making a terrified escape from the tribe.
His son killed his wife.


He meets up with Mike.  Hack's a veterinarian, and
helps Mike with his leg - and gives him a horse pill.


Atticus remembers why he hates grown-ups:
"They're ugly and they're stupid!"
Memories of being sent to bed without cake dance in his head... as do memories
of the time he caught his father in the bedroom playing with his mother's boobies.


Mike insists on going to rescue Peggy.  Tate warns him he'll die
if he walks on that leg.  There's only one alternative.


Atticus stuns the tribe when he decides not to kill Peggy.
Instead, he's going to marry her.  And then play
with her boobies in private in the bedroom.

EPISODE THREE (10/4/08)


Flashback:
Dr. Radley (Sean Sweeney) and Mary Beth's mother,
Mrs. Dubose (Rebecca Larsen) observe Mary Beth's increasingly odd behavior.


After a class trip to observe the local nuclear power plant,
Mary Beth tells her teacher, Ms. Finch (Jaime Andrews)
that she may not survive tonight's schoot pageant.


Hack Tate, who is Atticus' father, attempts to
explain the birds and the bees to his traumatized child.


Mary Beth kills Dr. Radley and her mother.


The adults are rounded up as Atticus announces his
plan for a new city without any stinky grown-ups.

EPISODE FOUR (5/30/09) - PLAYOFFS WEEK ONE!


Peggy (now played by Jaime Andrews) in the pit, recalling
the horrific events that have led her to this pass.
In other worlds, this was a recap episode.


Mary Beth (played this week by Carrie Wiita).


"You know... it comes with the Sunday paper."

EPISODE FIVE (6/6/09) - PLAYOFFS WEEK TWO!


As Mary Beth led Peggy to the pit, Peggy was caught up in memories
of how she met Mike, when he came into her pretzel eatery.  She was
thinking of him with mustard all over his face when she fell into the pit.


Peggy's horror gives way to madness.  "I don't even know who I am any more!
What's my name? I don't remember. What am I thinking? I don't know! ...Atticus!
Yes!  Come, my beloved! Atticus! Come do naughty things to my boobies!"
