The action begins with Jack, Angela, and Rachel arguing about which of them has the best body. Jack is bragging about his 6% body fat and exposes his abs to the delight of the two girls. After her friends leave for class, Topanga sits sullenly eating a piece of pizza. She knows that she does not live up to the standards set by her friends. Soon after they leave, Eric enters the student union and cannot sit down without unbuttoning an extra button on his pants. Topanga asks Eric point blank if she is fat. Without hesitating, Eric says yes and asks if she is going to finish her pizza. Topanga, not willing to be alone in her shame, begins telling Eric that he has packed on a few pounds too. Eric, devastated by the truth, states that he “sees how the girls flock to Jack with his 6% body fat and ignore me and my 70% flab.” The two pariahs then make a pact to go on a secret diet together, agreeing to give each other moral support. After Topenga leaves, however, Eric shoves an entire slice of pizza in his mouth.
