Dave looks to enact vengeance on everyone who has done him wrong in the past after signing a sweet new deal. Meanwhile, people suddenly charge him a lot more money for even the most trivial things that used to cost very little.
Dave hits the campaign trail as yell-happy presidential candidate Howard Dean and assumes the role of an antagonistic Gary Coleman. He also attempts to elude a crop of persistent racial stereotype pixies.
Dave meets the powerful Show Business and offers a look at a bunch of monsters who have seen their share of discrimination.
