When Burton Jernigan goes into the shed to get a ladder, he sees a pair of shoes sticking out of the ceiling. Thinking it's Alex, Jernigan pulls the legs down and realizes its a stuffed monkey. When he looks up, he realizes that he triggered the lawnmower and it falls down on him. As Jernigan gets up, he notices a piece of his hair and realizes the lawnmower gave him a horrible haircut which causes him to freak out.
