Episode Notes
Based on a story by C.B. Gilford.

Episode Quotes
Host: Good evening. In the nether world inhabited by ghouls, goblins, gremlins, and the generally grotesque, it's occasionally possible to put this sundry and myriad crew on canvas. And this we do in this arcade of the outrageous. Painting number one. A small item of hope and faith and despair. An excursion into the eerie in which we touch base with that fraternity of the dispossessed who seek out something miraculous in the way of cures, and in the way of hope. Our painting is called The Miracle at Camafeo.

Joe Melcor: If you start acting like a fallen woman on the way to confession, then my first act as a whole man will be to play handball with you against the wall. And you'll be up at that shrine asking to have the blue marks removed. You dig?
