[As he reaches for a book, his eyes fall out]

Man: [hysterical] It's not f-... [calmer] Well, lucky I know how to read Braille.

Announcer: You're on a scenic route through a state recreational area known as the human mind. You ask a passer-by for directions, only to find he has no face or something. Suddenly up ahead, a door in the road. You swerve, narrowly avoiding The Scary Door.

Episode 4
[Opening credits.]

Announcer: Imagine, if you will, a three by seven inch wooden frame -- a frame that's a gateway to a world of imagination. Wipe your mind on the welcome mat. You're about to enter The Scary Door.

[Scene: A man in a car]

Announcer: Meet Brad Thompson, a man on his way home from a boring day at the office.

Brad: Man, I wish something exciting would happen... anything at all.

[A fire truck drives behind him.]

Brad: What's this? A fire truck is trying to pass me? To get to my neighborhood? I'll bet my neighbours house is on fire. I'd better speed up if I want to watch that.

[He gets to his neighbour's house]

Brad: Wait a minute. My neighbour's house isn't on fire. But then, what's with all the smoke?

Man: Oh... hi Brad, sorry to be the one to have to tell you, but... you're on fire!

[Brad is shown on fire]

Brad: Yaaaaah!

[Brad's skeleton is on the floor]

Fireman: We tried to warn him that he was spontaneously combusting, but he drove away from us.

Announcer: Official cause of death, third degree burns... actual cause of death, first degree irony!

Episode 5
[Opening credits.]

Announcer: Imagine if you will, an announcer you can barely understand, he refers to a [mutters], but you're not quite sure what he said. He seems to be eating something, or perhaps he's a little drunk. It's remotely possible that he just said something about the Scary Door.

[Scene: A farm. Suddenly, it is attacked by UFOs shooting at everything in sight. Military forces are there, firing at the UFOs.]

Private: It's all over! Our guns and bombs are useless against the aliens.

Farmer: The saucers! They's a-crashin'!

[The UFOs starts to crash.]

Announcer: In the end, it was not guns or bombs that defeated the aliens, but that humblest of all God's creatures, the Tyrannosaurus Rex.

[A Tyrannosaurus Rex is seen crashing a UFO and eating the alien inside.]
