WHAT'S WRONG? NOTHING'S WRONG.
LOOK, I JUST NEED YOUR HELP ON SOMETHING.
WELL, ALL RIGHT.

LET ME THINK.
A NICE, EASY CAKE RECIPE.
HEY, HOW 'BOUT THAT, UH, CHOCOLATE CRUMBLY THING? NO.
SHE CAN'T DO THAT.
HEY, WELL, AT LEAST I CAN MATCH MY PANTS AND MY SHIRT- This may be our last chance.
Well, just get the frickin' recipe! All right.
Right.
MA, YOU-YOU GOT ANYTHING? HOW ABOUT A LEMON BUNDT CAKE? VERY EASY.
A MONKEY COULD MAKE IT.
A monkey could make it.
CARRIE.
THE CAKE.
HUH? IT'S DONE.
IT'S DONE.
I'M UP.
I'M UP.
I'M UP.
LET'S TAKE A LOOK AT IT.
OK.
I LOVE YOU.
I LOVE YOU.
MAYBE IT'LL LOOK BETTER IF WE PUT IT ON THE CAKE PLATE.
YEAH, LET'S DO THAT.
LET'S DO THAT.
AM I DREAMING THAT WE'RE GIANTS? NOPE.
ARE WE GIANTS? I TOLD YOU WE NEEDED MORE BATTER! WELL, YOU SHOULDA PUT MORE BAKING POWDER IN THERE! YOU HAVE NO IDEA HOW MUCH A PINCH IS! I KNOW WHAT A PINCH IS! OK? AAH! AAH! OH, YOU WANNA GO?! NO, COME ON! STOP! STOP IT! STOP IT! COME ON! WE'VE BEEN UP ALL NIGHT! I'M HUNG-OVER.
AND NOBODY'S GONNA WANT TO BUY THIS STUPID DOLL CAKE! WHAT ARE WE GONNA DO?! I DON'T KNOW! THIS IS MY FIRST BAD EXPERIENCE WITH CAKE! ALL RIGHT, YOU KNOW WHAT? I'M JUST GONNA SEE WHAT PLACE IS OPEN.
WE'RE GONNA BUY ONE.
OK? N- NO! NO! LOOK, I GOT AN IDEA.
OK? WE'LL BRING THE COVERED CAKE PLATE TO THE BAKE SALE.
AND I'LL JUST SAY TO EVERYBODY, "HEY, EVERYBODY, I'M GONNA BUY MY WIFE'S CAKE.
" AND THEN WE'LL LEAVE WITH THE SAME COVERED CAKE PLATE, AND NOBODY HAS TO KNOW THAT THE CAKE NEVER EXISTED.
SO YOU'RE OK WITH AN INVISIBLE CAKE, BUT YOU WON'T LET ME BUY A REAL ONE.
YOU KNOW WHAT? YOU CAN JUDGE ME WHEN YOU SOBER UP.
NOW, GRAB THE LID.
OH, THE LID IS MADE OF GLASS! EVERYBODY WILL KNOW THERE'S NOTHING IN THERE! COME ON.
THAT'S IT.
IT'S OVER.
NO! WAIT.
I J- I'LL TELL YOU WHAT.
JUST GRAB ME SOMETHIN' CAKE-SHAPED AND A CAN OF FROSTING.
OK.
WE DON'T HAVE ANY FROSTING.
IN MY NIGHTSTAND! GO! OK.
OBSERVED! I THOUGHT THAT WENT OVER RATHER WELL.
ARE YOU KIDDING?! THE ONLY SONG THAT BOMBED WORSE WAS THAT'S WEDNESDAY TO ME.
WELL, WE GAVE IT A WHIRL.
COME ON.
LET'S SNEAK IN TO CHICKEN LITTLE.
WHAT? NO.
ARTHUR.
I'M NOT GONNA GO SEE A MOVIE WITH YOU.
OK? I- I'VE SPENT OVER $600 ON THIS CHOIR.
MY CALVES ARE SMALLER THAN EVER.
THE ONLY THING I FEEL LIKE DOING RIGHT NOW IS REACHING DOWN YOUR THROAT, GRABBING YOUR HEART, AND CRUSHING IT WITH MY BARE HANDS.
DO YOU UNDERSTAND ME? I UNDERSTAND YOU'VE WRITTEN THE FIRST LINE OF A HIT BREAKUP SONG! COME HERE, YOU! HOW'S IT GOIN'? NICE TO SEE YOU.
OH.
OH, HEY.

HI.
LARRY.
HI.
MY WIFE CATHY.
OH.
HI.
NICE TO MEET YOU.
YEAH.
I'VE HEARD SO MUCH ABOUT YOU AND YOUR FAMOUS ERUPTING CAKES.
ACTUALLY, I'M A LITTLE NERVOUS.
IT'S SUPPOSED TO BE BUBBLING BY NOW.
AND IT'S NOT? AFTER ALL THAT PREP WORK? OK.
I'M JUST SAYING WE'LL CATCH YOU GUYS LATER.
OK.
OK.
BYE-BYE.
HEY.
THERE'S FATHER MELLEY.
LET'S DO THIS.
OK.
THEN I WENT BLOND IN THE EIGHTIES.
BUT WHO DIDN'T? ANYWAY, TRY THE PUNCH.
IT'S DIVINE.
HELLO, YOU TWO.
CARRIE.
THANK YOU SO MUCH.
OH, NO PROBLEM.
WOW.

GOSH, I WONDER WHICH ONE I'M GONNA CHOOSE.
I DON'T KNOW.
WELL, I GUESS IT'S GONNA BE THIS ONE.
GET THE CAR.
OK.
ALL RIGHT.
WHOA, WHOA, WHOA, WHOA.
CAN'T LET YOU DO THAT.
WELL, WHY NOT? WE DON'T DO THE TRADITIONAL BAKE SALE HERE.
WE DO SOMETHING MUCH MORE FUN.
IT'S CALLED A CAKE WALK.
HUH.
WHAT'S THAT? WELL, UH, WE PUT THE CAKES IN A CIRCLE, AND THE MEN WALK AROUND THEM.
AND WHEN THE MUSIC STOPS, IF YOU'RE IN FRONT OF A CAKE, YOU BUY IT.
IF YOU'RE NOT, YOU KEEP GOIN'.
IT'S A PANIC.
UH-HUH.
SO, DO YOU WANT THE LID ON OR OFF? ON.
ON.
THERE'S SOME STUFF IN THERE THAT SHOULDN'T BE EXPOSED TO AIR.
ALL RIGHTY.
OK, EVERYONE! LET'S GATHER AROUND FOR THE MAIN EVENT! GREAT PLAN.
I DIDN'T COUNT ON A CAKE WALK.
SORRY, MAN.
WHAT HAPPENED?! I'VE NEVER SEEN CARAMEL DO THAT.
HEY THIS IS A CHOCOLATE FROSTED COUCH PILLOW! NOW! GET THE CAR! DAD? WHAT'S THE MATTER? I SAW CHICKEN LITTLE.
COME ON.
