"This is not a cheap ploy in which we introduce a new character only to kill him off." Except it is. And that's why it's so funny.
The clone of Juan Ponce de Leon is, apparently, JFK's best friend - despite the fact that we've never seen him before. He dies a horrible, graphic, litter-induced death. JFK spends the better part of the episode crying hysterically, and Cleo attempts to comfort him. Abe is uncomforable with how much time his girlfriend is spending with his ex. Bad metaphors ensue.
I have to say, in the ten minutes he was actually on screen, Ponce grew on me. Probably because he was one of very few people to appear on the show that wasn't completely off in la-la-land. Alas, he was expendable, and had to perish as a plot point.
A fabulous parody of your average teen series when it tries its hand at tragedy. Probably the best episode of the series, in my oh-so-humble opinion.
