The scene opens with Christian and Sean opening a curtain wearing white bath robes. Sean tells Christian that he feels a little exposed, but Christian tells him that there is nothing to worry about. They then proceed to take off their robes, revealing the fact that they are only wearing little brown trunks.

The camera pans around to show nothing but men wearing little trunks and Speedos at a pool. Sean and Christian proceed to lay in lounge chairs by the pool. Sean can’t help but comment on how hot it is and that everyone there looks like they are wearing Crisco. “Don’t they know that they’re all going to get skin cancer?” Christian then lays his hand on Sean’s chest trying to quite him and then proceeds to rub him down with tanning lotion. Sean looks uncomfortable and tells Christian “this lifestyle isn’t for me. I’m sorry”. Sean then gets up and walks away, as a homosexual man in the pool throws Christian a ball and asks if he wants to play. Christian throws the ball back and follows Sean into a hotel room.

When Christian walks in, there are several men wearing only swimming trunks standing outside of the sliding glass door and they point to the closet. Christian gives them a knowing look and walks over. “Sean. Why are you in the closet?” Christian asks. “I have a family Christian, I can’t do this anymore.” Sean replies. Christian asks him to come out so that they can talk. When Sean does not answer Christian tells him “fine, then I am coming in”. Christian opens the door and the scene changes.

Christian, still wearing the little brown shorts, walks into the operating room where Michelle and Kimber are standing over Sean who is lying on the operating table. Michelle says, “I think we can save him”. As Christian is walking toward him, he looks over and sees all of the men in shorts standing at the window. When Christian gets to the table, Michelle begins to wax Sean’s chest. When she pulls the first strip, the heart monitor goes off and Michelle says that they are loosing him. Christian tells them to stand back and grabs the paddles. Kimber unplugs it and Michelle tells him that he needs CPR “the kiss of life”. As he leans over to start CPR the scene changes again.
