Tucker comes in next rubbing his cold hands together and remarks that it's really cold. While preparing the campfire, Andy accidentally sneezes at Quinn.
Quinn is mad and snaps at him to sneeze somewhere else. Andy apologizes and Vange sitting next to him tell him: "Gesundheit". The five of them are now sitting very close to the campfire, to keep themselves warm. Andy sneezes again, and a concerned Megan asks him if he has a cold. Andy says it's just allergies, but sneezes again. Tucker asks him if he's sure about it and Vange asks him if he got his flu shot yet.
Feeling frightened at the mention of it, Andy says no way. Quinn questions her about it, and she says that she gets a flu shot every year and asks them if they ever do. The boys all says no and Megan says no, because she has a fear of needles. Vange says it's just a little shot, and it's much better than getting sick. Quinn says there is nothing worse than getting a shot and Andy agrees with him, Vange tells that that she can think of something worse.
Heading over to the storyteller's chair, she says it's what he story is about.

Grandpa, explains that 40 years ago from when this aired a girl just about A.
She injured her leg and had to stay in bed. The girl's mother hired a night nurse to look after her.
However, they say that the Night Nurse was a little crazy. One night when the girl was sleeping, she filled a hypodermic needle with poison and gave it to her and she never woke up. The Night Nurse claimed that she was innocent, until the day she died in prison. Grandpa tells him he found out everything, because when he moved into his house, The girls family forget an old trunk.
