Kirstie Alley and two of her friends are talking on her patio about how they can lose weight. Kirstie calls another friend, who is eating a box of tissue and drinking water, and tells her she wants to be a spokesperson for starving kids, but she needs to lose weight in order to do so.

The friend advises Kirstie to go to an underdeveloped country, eat the food, etc. and acquire a parasite. That way when the weight is lost, Kirstie could go back to these countries to be the spokesperson for the children.

Kirstie asks her friend what they would do with the parasite once the weight was lost. The friend says something to the effect of keep it because of the size of her abdomen.

The two friends on the patio having drifted away from Kirstie while she was on the phone and have begun their own conversation. The male friend asks the female friend what Kirstie was talking about. The female friend replies that they are going to die and buries her head in his chest.
