Plot Summary Edit
Romeo Monterey and Juliet Cheddarette are two lovers with a serious problem: both of them come from two families who will not get along each other and get into literally cheesy fights. Will Romeo and Juliet--or more importantly, the two families--be able to find peace between the two, or will things get ugly?
The Countertop Edit
The show begins with Bob waiting impatiently for Larry. When Larry finally arrives, Bob angrily demands an explanation from him for arriving late. Larry starts to get all defensive, and a fight breaks out between the two. Fortunately, Petunia arrives to break up the fight. With Bob and Larry still mad at each other, Petunia decides to take over the show. She reads the letter, which is from a kid who, like Bob and Larry, has been caught in a moment of contention, which is sort of arguing, with somebody. With that in mind, Petunia decides that a story may help Bob, Larry, and their friend.
What We Have LearnedEdit
Bob and Larry get all emotional after the story. They, along with Petunia, then talk about what they have learned: they learned that when we argue, no one is happy. And when no one is happy, God isn't happy; and when God isn't happy, His Spirit can't be with us. After receiving the verse from Qwerty, they further discuss what they have learned, and in the end, they say goodbye.
