Drawn pictures are shown of male and female anatomy when the religious group is showing him their bible and discussing how they need to get rid of their sexual urges.

A young man in a bubble is hit hard by a moving bus and he flies some distance before hitting the ground, he is hit by a car and flies into a train car, he is thrown from a car and crashes through a billboard, and he is dropped out of a plane and lands in Niagara Falls: he goes over the falls and floats to the surface. A man of very small stature strapped into a child safety seat is tossed out the window of a moving car (he rolls around grunting before coming to a stop). A young man head-butts a man, he flies through the air, hits a train car and lands on the ground. A restaurant catches fire, with a young man in a bubble trapped inside; he is pulled out before he is harmed. A town explodes and people run through the streets. A truck hits a cow (we see it lying dead on the road), another truck drives through the dead cow cutting it in half and spraying blood and tissue on a man sitting nearby, a motorcycle gang drives through the bloody mess of cow guts, and then a bus drives through what remains spraying more blood and tissue on the sitting man. A woman holds a gun on a store owner who is restrained with tape and lying on the floor. Two trucks collide and a woman is thrown on the windshield. A man tears the roof off a car. A young man hits himself in the crotch with a bat after waking up with an erection. Many people shove each other and fight. A man threatens a young man in a bubble with a knife, a man threatens a busload of people with a knife, and a man talks about wanting to cut a man's heart out. A dream sequence shows a woman being eaten by a dinosaur, but she's fine a minute later. A young man falls on the floor and he appears to be dead, a taxi driver appears to have died at the wheel of his taxi -- the car continues going. A young man in a bubble runs from a car, a truck, and a busload of people chasing him. A young man yells out of frustration, a woman yells in anger, a woman yells at and threatens someone on the phone, and a woman yells at and slaps her husband on the arm. A vulture lands on, pecks at and chases a young man in a bubble, and a man with a stick hits the bubble repeatedly. A young man tumbles down stairs while encased in a bubble, and a crowd at a concert bounces him and the bubble in the air. A young man steps in some dog excrement (there's a squishy sound). A woman makes anti-Semitic remarks, a group of people taunt and make fun of a Hindu man, and we see a trainload of people who are referred to as "circus freaks": one man has a beak shaped nose, one man has flippers for hands, one woman can twist herself into a pretzel, a couple appears to be attached at the head, and a man is very tall, has really large ears and hands. A woman stabs a ball with a knife, an ice cream truck drives recklessly, we see people running and screaming, and a bus runs over a motorcycle.
