Intro: Maggots and slime are two of the least savory topics one could think of, and most individuals who have asked to touch either usually respond "Ugh, I'd rather die." Tonight, The Doctor will encounter large examples of both disgusting subjects, rendered even more horrific by the fact that if one touches them, one will die.

Outro: And you think we have a problem with industrial waste. Superfund could never handle this one. No, what is needed is something to handle the BOSS, and that something is out of this world. Be with us next Sunday evening at 11:00 for the conclusion of "The Green Death." [source: ChicagoEpguides]
