The gang attends a local horror convention together in an effort to meet Adam and Joe's favorite film director (John Landis) and hand him their mock trailer for Shinpads. When they can't afford a front-of-the-line "gold pass", Joe pretends to be disabled in order to skip the three hour long wait. Meanwhile, Lance is concerned that he may have caught a sexually transmitted disease after sharing a beer with the lead singer of Faster Pussycat. Written by
