Synopsis: When May was a child, she was a lonely girl with a lazy eye and without any friends except a weird and ugly doll kept in a glass case given by her bizarre mother on her birthday. May becomes a lonely, weird young woman, working in an animal hospital and assisting the veterinarian in surgeries and sewing operated animals most of the time. Her lesbian colleague Polly has a sort of attraction for her. When the shy May meets the mechanic Adam Stubbs, she loves his hands and has a crush on him. They date, but the weirdness and bizarre behavior of May pushes Adam away from her. Alone, May has a brief affair with Polly, but she feels rejected again when her colleague meets Ambrosia. When her doll is accidentally broken, the deranged May decides to build a friend for her, using the best parts her acquaintances can offer.

You know, I meant,

my ex-girlfriend...

bought them for me.


I'll see you around, May.

"Hey, see you around, right?"

I'm so sorry that...

I tripped in front of you

at the coffee shop.

Maybe we could...

we could do something.

"See you around."

"See you around, right?"

Hello, happy!

Dr. Zarkizein needs you

to do a fecosam

on the miscitta.

Does that make

any sense to you?

Fecal exam on Miss Kitty.

No problem.

Oh, excuse me.


What's up, May?

I was just about to...

about to have lunch.

Wow, you look great!

You hungry?

I will cut.

And you pick.

Good choice.

So what do you do, May?

I work at the animal hospital.

And I sew.


Animal hospital.

Some people think

it's kind of gross.

I love gross.

- Really?

- Mm-hmm.

Disgust me, please.


A couple of weeks ago,

this old man comes in

and says his dog is dying.

And he begs us to save it.

A 90-pound black Lab

named Seymour.

We take him in

and run some tests

and we find that he has

a twisted bowel.

And he needs

to be operated on immediately.

So, we shave Seymour's tummy,

we cut him open

and we take out a piece

of intestine about,

about the size of a hot-dog.

Everything went smooth,


when we went to sew

Seymour back up,

we realized we were out

of the heavy sutures

that you're supposed to use

for large dogs.

So the doctor decided

if we tripled up

on cat sutures

that should do the trick.


a few days go by

and the old man calls up


The cat sutures had burst

when he was at work.

And by the time he got home,

Seymour was sprawled out

on the back porch

with his guts spread

all over the concrete.

And the fence

was soaked in blood

all the way around the yard.

It was a mess.

I had to sew that one back up.
