Storyboard Text

  • It's over, Mary
  • Mary Maloney patiently sits at home, waiting for her husband, Patrick who she is pregnant with. She has a drink ready for him because she knows he will need one after a long day of work.
  • Some meat and peas please!
  • Sure thing!
  • After many drinks, Patrick tells her that he wants a divorce and Mary is so upset that she goes into denial and decides to make dinner, even though she knows he is going out.
  • Nooooooooooo! Patrick!
  • As they are eating the turkey...
  • Outraged at Patrick's decision to leave her, Mary kills him by hitting him over the head with the turkey she was making for dinner and doesn't even realize what she has done until she's done it.
  • If we could just find the murder weapon...
  • It must be right under our noses!
  • Mary goes to the store, and tells the grocer she is fixing dinner for herself and Patrick. 
  • When Mary returns home, she pretends to be surprised that Patrick is dead and she calls the police frantically.
  • The police come, and after a long night of work she offers them some turkey and they eat it, not knowing that they are eating the murder weapon.
