Betty smiles. "Liz, honey, why don't you go
out by the pool and eat the tofu sandwich the
cook just made for you."
Suddenly, Betty notices that Stevie has left
"Oh, Liz, we must find her!" she screams.
The two both run outside as Liza sings
"Life is a Cabaret" and starts to have a seiz

snorting Sweet and Low from a bowl that sits
next to a pitcher filled with low-calorie
