In the final episode of the second season, Michael Moore celebrates the victory of the anti-choice forces in the 30-year war over abortion. A satirical sketch, filmed in black-and-white, includes a number of news items on protests, bombings, and the murder of doctors. The film shows Moore arriving at an anti-abortion group's headquarters to sign a peace agreement. Later, a parade is held that includes an expectant mother float. In between episodes, an Awful Truth correspondent visits a restaurant, a pizza parlor, and a sperm bank in an attempt to find President Clinton a job after he leaves office. Each employer is asked about job opportunities and shown a copy of the president's resume. Next, a reporter visits rural Sussex, VA, to find out why the town remains provincial despite the county's recent population surge. The answer? Thousands have been shipped to the county to fill two new prisons.
