The skits for this episode are as follows: The Exxico corporation has a message for consumers everywhere: stay out of our way or we'll kill you. TransEastern Airlines welcomes passengers aboard with a message from each of the employees who do their part to flying as miserable an experience as possible. Another skit that was rejected for being too cheap is presented. Velvet Jones pitches more of the benefits of enrolling in his school of technology. William Burroughs reads poetry. A button marked 'push to explode building' invites people to give it try. A bitter comedian rants about all the big stars that don't want him to open for their shows. Additional skits include Bill Cosby, Reagan's script, Whisper Bubble Bath, Harlequin Romances for men, Reach Out, and 'Art is Ficial'. Rick James performs "Give It To Me Baby" and "Super Freak".
