Valerie, continuing to be tormented by writer Paulie G., is shocked when Aunt Sassy is given a racially offensive line to deliver. She tries to enlist the help of new writer Gina in changing it, which only makes Paulie angrier. Even the director knows the line isn't funny, but encourages her to allow the audience to decide whether it needs a change. Written by Anonymous
