How do I create a single .VOB file for each TV episode from a ripped DVD in Snow Leopard, when it looks like the episodes span multiple .VOBs?

I'm ripping my DVDs for use in Plex and would like to use the VIDEO_TS folders or .VOB files instead of transcoding with Handbrake or the like.
According to the suggestions for naming TV shows for Plex
, I should use one .VOB file for each episode. However, when I ripped a "From the Earth to the Moon" disc, the episodes span more than one file; e.g. the first episode on the disc would be in all of VTS_01_1.VOB and about half of VTS_01_2.VOB, and the second episode starts in the middle of VTS_01_2.VOB.
Is there software available that can extract just one episode per .VOB and runs in Snow Leopard? Or, if there's a setting in Plex that will allow the scraper to see individual episodes in a VIDEO_TS folder, that would be fine, but Google-fu is failing me so far. Thanks!
