Storyline

Predatory, shameless, and obnoxious ambulance chasing lawyer Geraldine Ferrett gets busted in the remote small town of Stuecksville for a moving violation. Ferrett initially thinks that she can simply resolve the situation by paying a fine, but soon discovers that the folks in Stuecksville have a very odd and strict concept of justice.

Quotes

Crypt Keeper: Talk about trial and terror. Still, I think Geri will do just fine. I mean aside from the occasional attack of motion sickness. And now it's time for business news. So Chip, what happened on the shock exchanges today.
[the Crypt Keeper sees a dagger on the back of Chip's dead body as he spurts blood]
Crypt Keeper: Oh! Oh sorry, looks like it's time for the spurts report instead.
[laughs]
Crypt Keeper: Oh boy!
