50 States of Fright (2020) s01e01 Episode Script

The Golden Arm (Michigan) - Part 1

MAN: Every state has its folklore, tall tales, and legends but sometimes there is a darker story A tale not so much told, as whispered.
I never knew anybody that was connected to their land the way Dave was.
I mean, he he loved that land.
Like, it was like he was a part of it, and it was part of him.
- Little tension, Andy.
- All right.
ANDY: Dave was a fine craftsman.
Made most of his stuff out of sugar maple and red oak that he grew on his property.
DAVE: Away! Dave and Heather were high school sweethearts, and she was the prettiest girl in Alpena County, and she knew it.
Nice piece of wood! It's got a little twist in it.
- A nice spiral grain.
- Ah.
ANDY: A fine log of wood.
DAVE: He knows.
Coney dogs all right for you fellas? Yes, ma'am.
ANDY: She was an expensive wife, though.
I mean, she was always asking Dave for stuff he couldn't really afford, and and he would get it for her, you know, no matter how much it set him back.
Lunch is served.
Hey there, sexy.
Do I know you? - No - [CHUCKLES.]
But I heard you're into lumberjacks.
It's true.
I do sort of have a thing for dumb, muscular guys.
I guess it's my lucky day.
Is that new? I should've asked you first, but it was just so beautiful.
I can take it back.
No, I like it.
We'll find a way to pay for it.
Nobody was expecting the accident.
And I'll never forgive myself for not being there.
Hey, Andy just called.
You like it? That is going to turn a few heads tonight.
Just a few? What about Andy? Andy called in sick.
We're supposed to fell a tree together and now I'm gonna have to do it by myself, so we maybe a little late.
Babe, we're on the fundraising committee, we have to show up on time.
I know, but there is weather coming in tomorrow, and I'm short of lumber [INHALES.]
Maybe you could give me a hand? Now? It's just a little tree.
Well, actually, it's a really big tree but It won't take long.
- Fine.
- I love you.
Come on! [SIGHS.]
Hey, keep the line taut.
- Okay? - Sorry! [PULLEY RATTLING.]
You're okay, you're okay.
- Oh, shit.
It's okay.
- It's okay.
It's okay.
You're losing too much blood.
Help me! Help me! [GRUNTS.]
- Wait, what are you doing? - I gotta get you free.
David, please! No, no, no! [SCREAMS.]
