Derek Dude goes to a bar with his girlfriend, Jill Goodheart, but leaves by himself. Jeremy Jive picks Jill up and returns to her apartment, which she shares with Derek. Derek returns and, rather than instigating a fight, talks with Jeremy. The two discover that they are involved in the same business deal. Ignored, Jill tries to kill herself with an electric knife. She is saved by the entrance of the stoned guest Carlos Arachnid, who transports the three to his Club Bide-a-Wee, where they live happily ever after.
