Banana Custard Caramel Chocolate pie

How is that for a title for a pie? I have been sick for a few days so I figure the best way to get over it would be to make a pie. Well not sure it will help me get over it but I just thought it would be nice to make a pie.

1 1/2 cups heavy cream
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup white sugar
2 egg yolks
1 egg
1/4 cup cornstarch
1/3 cup white sugar
2 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract      
Graham Cracker crust
Heavy Whipping cream that has been whipped. (You can use cool whip if you like)  
Hot Fudge sauce
Caramel sauce 
4 bananas
In a heavy saucepan, stir together the cream,milk and 1/4 cup of sugar. Bring to a boil over medium heat.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the egg yolks and egg. Stir together the remaining sugar and cornstarch; then stir them into the egg until smooth. When the milk mixture comes to a boil, drizzle it into the bowl in a thin stream while mixing so that you do not cook the eggs. Return the mixture to the saucepan, and slowly bring to a boil, stirring constantly so the eggs don' t curdle or scorch on the bottom.
When the mixture comes to a boil and gets very thick, remove from the heat. Stir in the butter and vanilla, mixing until the butter is completely blended in. Let cool a little. This mixture will be thick.
On the bottom of the crust add some of the hot fudge sauce that has been heated so it will be easy to spread, add some sliced bananas, custard, then drizzle some caramel sauce on top of custard. Then another layer of bananas, custard and on top of this layer add both fudge and caramel sauce on top. Top with whipped cream and chill.
