Randy runs into the bathroom to hide. He locks it behind him, but Stuart's in there taking a bath, all decked out with candles and everything. Stuart's like, "I'm in here." Randy's all, duh! But just says, "So am I." Earl voiceovers that he thinks it's crazy that Randy wants to be a cheerleader, but now that he thinks about it, Randy had given him plenty of clues. We get a truly hilarious sequence in which Earl ignores Randy's clues: First, Randy's doing cheer moves next to the bed, but when Earl wakes up, Randy's like, "Cockroach!" Earl rolls back over. Then they're ordering at the Crab Shack, and after Earl asks for the number two special, Randy claps his hands twice and says, "Number 1!" Then they're on the back of the El Camino, when Earl drinks the last beer. Randy says he'll get another case, but instead of just stepping off the back of the car, he walks to the end, turns around, and does a full-on backflip. It is the funniest thing ever and looks so real that I sort of want to think Ethan Suplee actually did that flip. (I'm sure he didn't, though.) Has Ethan Suplee always been this good at this character? I know Randy's still stupid, but I feel like he has more range now than he used to. Again, Randy spin-off or at least a My Name Is Randy episode, anyone? Anyway, back in the present, Stuart asks Randy how long he's going to be in there, because the bubbles are starting to go away, and Kenny doesn't like anyone else to see Chester. From the hall, Kenny's like, "Stuart! Put a washcloth over Chester!" Earl tells Randy that he's on his list now until he goes to cheerleading camp. Kenny whispers to Earl that he needs to tell Randy he wants to go, too, if he wants to get Randy to go. Earl's like, "No. I'm a man!" But Kenny convinces him that's the only way Randy will go, because Randy wants to do whatever Earl does. He makes his case with, "How many years were you Batman and Big Batman for Halloween?" For some reason, we don't get a flashback to this, which makes me sad. Though, my imagination does a pretty good job picturing them in their Batman suits through the years. Earl realizes Kenny's right, and he tells Randy he made fun of dude cheerleaders because he wanted to be one, but didn't think he could make it. Randy's skeptical, so Earl lies that he's always wanted a pom (Kenny corrects him, "Pom poms"). Or, two poms, says Earl. He also says he's been sneaking off to cheer forever, but mostly in the shower, so he's never done anything advanced because of how slippery it is. Randy's like, "I know. That's why I always wear my shoes in the shower." Earl tells Randy he's going to the camp with or without him. Stuart tells Randy it sounds, "Spectacular!" But he says it in the gayest voice he can muster, then adds that Kenny taught him to say it that way.
