Plot Synopsis for "Story 1"
A man prepares a dish for the master chef. When the master chef rebukes him for a horrible execution of cutting the vegetables, the man cuts of his hand.
In Wausau, Tony Chu and John Colby arrive to investigate the missing hand case. John makes several quips about locals lending a 'hand' on the case. Sheriff Wayne Cypress directs them to speak with Dana Cypress and Ibrahaim Ramin.
They bring Tony and John to the morgue with the recovered body parts. They tell Tony to have at eating the parts to see if they can get a lead on the case with Tony's Cibopathy. Randy Decker walks in and introduces them to one of the dead body parts. It suddenly reanimates when Randy puts her head back on its body. The Reviver chases John around the room while Dana updates Tony that Revivers come back to life more violent then they used to be. Tony tells them their missing hand must be reanimated somewhere in the town as it wouldn't make sense to import a body part otherwise.
They arrive at Dagmar's best bites restaurant. Em Cypress is leaving the place at the same time they arrive. Em raves about how the restaurant has turned around and suddenly tastes like a five-star restaurant nearly overnight. Tony tries a bit of her food and tells them the chef, Dagmar Fiskbuller, is inside. He orders some of them to cover the back as they head in the front.
They bust into the room and order Dagmar to freeze. He throws a butcher knife at Em and chops her in the face as he takes off. Dana orders Tony to chase after Dagmar. As Tony turns the corner, he's knocked out by Dagmar's third arm which has been reattached to his body. Em arrives outside and knocks him out.
At Rothschild Police Department Headquarters, Dagmar admits he's been using the hand to suddenly cook well as it is all he ever wanted. Tony explains to Dana that Dagmar is a Punicacuratio and can reattach body parts with pomegranate juice. Tony asks if anyone's seen John.
Elsewhere, John sleeps in bed with Mrs. Swenson.
