A few days later, when

the sheriff shows up,

he found good ol' Abe just

a-swinging in the barn.

All the while, good

ol' Mary's just sitting

in the front lawn just

catching some rays.

She was covered with blood but

it was like she didn't

even know what happened.

And here's the kicker.

When the sheriff asked

her why she did it,

she paused and said,

"I didn't do it.

"The ghost killed him."

The ghost.

She said the ghost

- You remember Neil and Emma.

- Well, I might be old

- You too.

- I want the best

Goodnight, goodnight everyone.

- God.


Well, who needs ghost

stories when you've got her.

- Enough.

- She's unbearable, man.

- So Harold, Anne tells

me that you're starting

a new project at

working or something?

- Yeah, it's...

Well, it's not that

big of a deal but

it's a promotion and

a little more pay.

A lot more hours.

But it's good.

- Neil, no more, okay?

We really should be going.

- Honey, you're the

designated driver, remember?

- Oh yeah.

- Maybe you two

should just spend the night.

- What?
