They get a house and try to live a normal life under the names Frost, Hott Dogg, and C. Bean.

                       FROST

                       JUDGE PATTERSON
Now all of you foods will be
defending yourself
                                                            
                       HOTT DOGG

8.

                       JUDGE PATTERSON
The Stores go first
                                                            
                       LAWYER
Judge there is not much to say
here, a lot of the stores do not
allowed food in because food can
mess up the carpet, someone could
spill a drink, and that gives the
stores more work to do. So I say
do not let these foods into our
stores
                                                            
                       JUDGE PATTERSON
O.k., now itís the foods turn.
                                                            
                       HOTT DOGG
Your honor I think it is wrong
that the stores do not let food
in, They are being racist against
our kind. How are we supposed to
make a living. We are people too
now, except, the, fact, that, we,
are, um, food.
                                                            
                       JUDGE PATTERSON
Well I donĎt really give a crap so
The Food win, The Food get $500
from all the stores that didnít
let them, and all the no food
signs will be taken down.
                                                            
                       LAWYER
Crap!
                                                            
                       C.BEAN
Ha! In your face!!!
                                                            
Lawyer drinks from his straw, then leaves
                                                            
                       C.BEAN
Ah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ow!!! That hurt!
Dang it! You idiot. How about I
kick you in the nuts.

C. Bean pulls it out and shows it to him.
                                                            
                       C.BEAN
Ha! Read it and weep.
                                                            
                       TELEMARKETER

Frost leaves
                                                            
                       HOTT DOGG
Why did you want Frost to go get
you Beef Jerkey? You already have
10 bags in your room.
                                                            
                       C.BEAN
Every test needs a experiment, or
is it the other way around? I
don't know.
                                                            
INT. SUPERMARKET - DAY
                                                            
Frost goes up to someone who works at the supermarket and
heís wearing a mustache as a disguise .
                                                            
                       FROST

is?
                                                            
The man is staring at him along with 5 other people
                                                            
                       FROST
Ah crap!
                                                            
INT. THE FOOD GROUPS HOUSE - DAY

                       HOTT DOGG

                       C.BEAN
Your working, it's not like you
can afford it.
                                                            
                       HOTT DOGG
That's not the point the point is
that you need to stop eating my
freaking food! And if you don't
something bad is going to happen.
                                                            
                       C.BEAN
Like what? You can't do anything.
                                                            
                       HOTT DOGG
At least I got my Chicken Nuggets
in there.
                                                            
Hott Dogg goes over to the fridge. C.Bean takes out the
nugget box he was hiding, then eats the last nugget out of
the box and eats it.
                                                            
                       HOTT DOGG
C. Bean!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
                                                            
C. Bean has the food in his mouth and starts talking
                                                            
                       C.BEAN
What? I didn't do anything.
                                                            
                       HOTT DOGG
That's it man! Your gonna get it!
And when you least expect it too!
                                                            
Frost comes in the house. The bottom of him is gone and you
can only see the top of him.
                                                            
                       HOTT DOGG
Frost? What happened to you?
                                                            
                       FROST
I put on a disguise and it didn't
work! They ate half of me!
                                                            

15.

                       C.BEAN
Well then I guess you wouldn't
mind if I eat the other half.
                                                            
C. Bean eats the rest of Frost.
                                                            
                       HOTT DOGG
C. Bean what the freak? You ate

                       C.BEAN

                       HOTT DOGG
I can't believe you man, your out

Hott Dogg Leaves, and C. Bean goes over and takes the bowl

bowl.
                                                            
                       C.BEAN

All of Frost walks in the shot covered in poop, and he's
carrying a chainsaw
