Sam's new film, from multiple episodes.

Sam: "It's about a boy, this all-American kid, can't stop jerking off to fantasies about having sex with his mother. It makes him hate himself. So he builds a time machine to go into the future where she's old and hideous so he can escape his Oedipal impulses. But he puts the wrong date in the machine, and he goes back in time instead to the 1950s, where she's just a horny teenager, and she spends the rest of the movie just trying to fuck him instead of his dad. Kind of like Back to the Future."
