Later, George drinks tequila (with the worm) and hallucinates him living Ernie's life, with Ernie living his life. Just because Benny was not mean to him so he wouldn't have been tough enough to go and be the manager at Powers Bros. and win over Angie. In the end, George sees Vic dressed up as a worm, and leaves. Ernie decides to eat many worms so he could witness him having sex with Angie.
