Ali G (Sacha Baron Cohen) goes to Hollywood to pitch his TV idea. He can't get any producers interested in his James Bond rip-off, which features hardcore sex scenes. He tells producer Lee Levinson that he has another idea -- a show about a police chief possessed by the spirit of a dead police dog. When Levinson advises that it would "take a very ingenious script to make it work," Ali suggests, "You would need a dog to help write some of it." Borat visits Middleton Place Plantation in South Carolina, where he annoys a woodworker by ridiculing his use of primitive technology. Borat attends the Llano County Rodeo, where he asks performers, "How many punch you take to a cow before it fall?" and shows some interesting Polaroids of his "wife." Ali G holds a panel on sex, where he tells unimpressed panelists (including porn star Leanna Heart and an anti-porn crusader) that he lost his virginity at age ten to an Italian supermodel. Bruno opens his segment by explaining that "being gay is the new coolest thing, so that's why I've come to the gayest part of America -- Alabama!" Bruno attends an NCAA football game, where he joins the cheerleaders, and asks Alabama running back Shaud Williams, "Are you allowed to date other members of the team or do you have to wait until the season's over?" Bruno also attends a Pro-America Expo, where he finds the organizer shares his antipathy toward Jews, but seems to have a problem with Bruno's flamboyant homosexuality. Ali interviews former Secretary of State James Baker, and suggests that either Iran or Iraq change the name of their country so they sound less similar. He also interviews former presidential press secretary Marlon Fitzwater, who calls Ali "an idiot."
