He's got this long, sharp hook

for a hand, right?

[Barry] Dude, your tellin' it


[Ray] Shut up.

So the girl, she gets all scared, right?

She wants to go home.

And the boy, all hot and bothered,

he gets pissed and peels out.

[Barry] Wait. No, no, no.

That's not the way it goes.

Okay, the boy goes for help,

and the girl stays in the car, and she

hears this, like, scratching sound--

it's not a scratching sound.

It's a drip.

Drip, drip.

No, it's scratching

because the guy's been hung...

From a tree and his feet

are scratching on the car.


He's been decapitated, and it's the

blood from his severed neck...

That's dripping on the car, and

it's going, drip, drip, drip.

No, he wasn't decapitated.

He was gutted with a hook.

That's the way

I heard it.

Look, you're all wrong.

They get back to the girl's

house, and they find...

The lunatic's bloody hook

in the car door.

Now, that's the original story.

That's the way it really happened.

Hey, hey.

None of it really happened.

- It's a bullshit ghost story to begin with.

- No, it's not.

It's true.

[Helen] Yeah, I don't think so, ray.

I swear it.


It's a fictional story

created to warn young girls...

Of the dangers

of having premarital sex.


Well, actually, honey--

and you know how terrified

I am of your I.Q., but--

it's an urban legend,

American folklore.

And they all usually originate from

some sort of real-life incident.

[Wave breaks loudly]

[Yelling, laughing]

So, by that time,

i will just be finishing my

two-year contract on guiding light,

coinciding with your first year as

starting quarterback for the steelers.



Then, we can elope

to Europe, or the Caymans,

wherever, where I'll let you

impregnate me...
