Peter "Pete" Flowers was a new father and professor at San Flavio State. He'd taken a sabbatical so as to take help his wife Mary take care of their new son, Doug. Doug was colicky, crying frequently for so discernible reason. As the days passed, Pete became convinced that Doug was timing his crying so as to make his father miserable. Anytime Pete was engaged in some important act, be it cooking, sleeping, and love-making with his wife, Doug would cry for no good reason. Soon, Pete noted that Doug had a side-long glance that he'd give his father after such outbursts. Finally, Pete, thoroughly paranoid, attempted to kill his son by throwing him against the refrigerator. Mary, who'd been preparing dinner, rushed forward, holding a knife. The blade slashed open Pete's arms. He tackled Mary to take the knife away. The knife was driven through the bottom of Mary's jaw and into her brain, killing her instantly. Distraught, Pete stabbed himself with that knife.

Doug survived, and was adopted by Mary's sister, Vicki Garreau and her husband Jim. Doug remained colicky.
