Storyline

When Peter and Chris' favorite TV show is canceled, Peter hatches a scheme to get it back on the air: by having Chris pretend to be dying of a rare disease, Peter convinces a dying wish charity to lobby the network to re-air the show in exchange for the TV rights to Chris' death. Peter then tries to back out of his end of the deal by claiming to have miraculously healed the fatal disease, but doesn't count on what will happen when people believe he's telling the truth.
