Earl attends a class in prison that focuses on creative writing. After the teacher gave them an assignment to write a story, Earl realized that writing was a lot harder than he expected. Earl informs Randy about the assignment and Randy loves the idea of creating his own make-believe world.

In the end, Earl discovers that sometimes the best story does not require the most imagination.
