At a photo shoot, the photographer recommends a picture where Stu is crouched down and Jamie is standing beside him. Stu says no way and begins to feel downgraded compared to Jamie.
In the car, the two have a conversion about their upcoming appearance on a late-night talk show and Jamie tells Stu that he won't be joining him on the couch next to the host. Stu once again gets angry and can't believe that Jamie treats him like he isn't important. Jamie reassures Stu that he is important and tries to convince him by taking him to see Johnny Carson's former "sidekick," Ed McMahon. Ed tells them that Stu may be the "second banana" but that the position is just as important as the top banana.
Things start to heat up again when Stu sees two magazines with pictures of Jamie on the cover. One is about his upcoming movie-which Stu didn't know about--and the other has words printed over Stu's face. In a fury, Stu rushes into Jamie's dance practice and confronts him. Stu attempts to show Jamie he is just as good by dancing but ends up embarrassing himself. When Stu finally stops dancing he says that he can be Jamie's little brother in his upcoming movie but Jamie tells him Jonathan Lipnicki is doing it instead. A fight breaks out and Stu tells Jamie he's done getting treated like dirt and storms out.
Jamie is advised to replace Stu, so he finds a rapper called Young Church. But he feels lost without his second banana. Jamie finds Stu at the studio with rapper E-40 and actor Jason Biggs.
On the way to the TV show it becomes apparent that Jamie doesn't have the same chemistry with Young Church that he has with Stu . Jamie decides that he can't perform without his sidekick. He goes to Jason Biggs' house where Stu is staying and plays their music video in front of Stu's window. While watching TV, Jamie and Stu are surprised to see that the musical guest is Young Church, rapping their song!
