Episode Recap

Mr. Dixon meets a beautiful waitress who's constantly being hit on, and he sticks up for her. The two instantly fall in love, and end up getting married. Unfortunately, Dixon starts treating his lumberjack buddies a bit harshly from then on, thinking that they all want her. It's all blind paranoia.

One day, Ted wants a job with the lumberjacks. He ends up talking to Liz instead of Dixon. Liz suddenly falls for Ted, and tries to get his attention. No matter how much he tries to resist, Liz eventually corners Ted and they start to make love. Dixon bursts in on them, and using the blunt side of an axe, he blinds Ted. The other lumberjack boys want to get revenge against Dixon, and they teach Ted how to use a chainsaw. As Ted saws up some rather large trees for practice, something red spills out from the trees and shoots around everybody. They weren't real trees, the lumberjack boys captured and tied up Dixon and Liz, and forced them into hollowed-out trees, and Ted kills them. Everybody's having a fun time as Liz and Dixon are carved up like jelly rolls.
