Becka Paulson lives a boring life in a trailer with her mailman husband Joe. After accidentally shooting herself in the head she begins hearing voices. She has no memory of shooting herself but can see the wound on her forehead. Her husband suggests that she visit the local vet - he's cheaper than seeing a doctor - but he can't help her. Becka soon realizes that she can now now do things she couldn't really do before and that her brain function and intelligence have improved. Her husband is no nicer to her however leading her to extremes. Written by garykmcd

Has anyone noticed that when she looks in the mirror to inspect her wound, the entry hole has changed to the wrong side of her forehead? She shot herself over her left eyebrow, and the wound is over the right eyebrow in the mirror. Maybe they mistakenly thought the mirror image would be backwards.

Her portrayal is a bit spooky, as she has the convincing ability to emulate a ditsy housewife, and at the same time is able to generate that "far away look" in her eyes which makes her appear to be a bit psycho.

As usual O'Hara is magnificent! I went to her Wikipedia page and was not surprised by her many accomplishments. She is my age and I first became enamored with her on SCTV. That was in the 70's when cable TV (believe it or not) was only available in select areas across the USA. She is credited with over 30 dead on impersonations. She can sing too!

She also directed an OL episode called"Glyphic".
