Phoebe Cheats: In this variation of "The Tell-Tale Heart," Phoebe plagiarizes from a poetry book and uses one of the poems as her entry in a poetry contest.

    • In "Phoebe Cheats," when she's trying to write a poem, you see her from the side, reading the book. It flashes to the back and she's writing. Then when it goes back to the side, she's still reading.
