Walter (Sinbad) organizes a telethon to raise $15,000 for the Community Outreach Program. This provides ample opportunity to show off the musical talents (or lack of same) of the main characters: Dawnn Lewis (Jaleesa) sings "Straight Up", Alisa Gyse-Dickens (Kinu) performs "Mr. Melody", and Jasmine Guy offers a hilariously inept "tribute" to Josephine Baker, built around Baker's signature tune "J'ai Deux Amours". Alas, by the time Dwayne (Kadeem Hardison) tries (and fails) to score as a standup comic, most of the telethon's viewers have tuned out, forcing Walter to come up with an alternate plan.
