Knocked unconscious by drugged milk, Tracy lies helplessly while Heels Beals positions a fan with razor-sharp blades near Tracy and rigs it to eventually fall on Tracy and slice him to ribbons.

Tracy's friends are surprised because Tracy was scheduled to be the chef at B. O. Plenty's anniversary barbecue.
