With no gigs coming in but anxious to plug his partly-written novel Rick sees the chance to gain self-publicity when a Sunday newspaper comes to do an At Home interview with Mel. He even buys a pig to make him seem more interesting but Mel orders him to return it and the shop is shut. Since nobody will mind the pig during the interview he is forced to hide it in the house during the journalists' visit but of course it escapes and his efforts to recapture it leave Rick with egg on his face. Sort of. And then he learns that he will not be mentioned in the article.
