Lady Sings The News
One night, Jimmy, Carl, and Sheen hack into the local news feed, and paste their heads on the bodies of the reporters. The same night, Cindy tells Libby about how she saw that Cindy and Jimmy were playing footsie in the library. The next day, Corky Schimatzu hires Jimmy, Carl, Sheen, Cindy, and Libby to do a children's news program. Jimmy and Cindy are the anchors, Carl is the meteorologist, Sheen is the sports reporter, and Libby is the gossip reporter.
That night, everything goes well on the show until Libby comes on. She proceeds to tell millions of viewers about Jimmy and Cindy's relationship going from "hate-love" to "all-love all the time" (while Jimmy and Cindy are flirting).
Libby discovers lots of embarrassing gossip to share on the show, and uses it to blackmail people to do whatever she wants. Jimmy, Cindy, Carl, and Sheen develop a plan. They get Libby to look through a peephole into Carl's dressing room. Inside, she sees that three "aliens" (actually Jimmy, Cindy, and Sheen with masks) have taken over Carl's brain. They are using him to gather kittens for them to eat, and harvest human spleens to play spleenball with. Libby believes this, and reports it on the local news. The town proceeds to mob Carl. Jimmy and Cindy tell Libby it was just a story they made up to scare her. She calls off the mob. Corky then shows up and tells them they are all fired because he is making a new show called Everybody Loves Sock Puppet. The mob then chases Corky down the street (who drops Sheen), so everyone walks off to go home. Libby picks up Sheen and goes off. Jimmy stops and kisses Cindy on the lips. Carl is calling for someone to let him out.
