- "Telling" -- Teddy just knifed Josephine to death in the garden and he is trying to tell his family but they brush him aside.
- "The Cat Jumps" -- The Harold Wrights are very modern and forward thinking and not suspicious in the least so they eagerly grasp the chance to buy the beautiful house Rose Hill despite the gruesome murder that occurred at Rose Hill in the past.
- "Reduced" -- Two little girls are loyal to their governess... a governess with a shadowy past.
- "Look at all Those Roses" -- A stranded motorist gets creeped out by an invalid girl, an odd woman, and a beautiful rose garden that may or may not be fertilized by the odd woman's missing husband.
