Synopsis
Sal gives Fishead mystery pills he got free for being his supplier's best customer. The pills cause Fishead to black out, when he wakes he doesn't recall what he's done - things like spray painting swastikas on walls or dressing as a KKK member. Sal helps collect donations for Gus while Gus (dressed as Elvis) does a street performance of songs. Sal's supplier is actually Hitler, who plans to achieve mind control through pharmaceuticals. Fishead tries to explain to Sal, who sends Fishead off with Maggie, who is in a protest group of Hitler's next test subjects.
