A phony miracle healer and minister named Perry removes the ground from a three-pronged electrical plug to a microphone amp in hopes of getting rid of an annoying hum emitting from the machine. During the service, he steps into a baptismal pool while holding the microphone and is inadvertently electrocuted, sending him straight to hell.

"There'll be no resurrecting this con-artist."
