Summary

At the urging of author Neil Gaiman, Sue Ellen tries her hand at writing and illustrating a graphic novel. When Sue Ellen needs inspiration and encouragement, she turns to Neil - who pops up in unexpected places! - and to the philosophy lessons of her local falafel vendor!

Plot

The episode starts with Neil Gaiman speaking at a book signing. Afterwards, he signs everyone's books.

At the park after Binky leaves, Sue Ellen goes to get a falafel from a food stand and the man who works there talks about how some people are round like falafel sandwiches and some are pointy like pizza slices. This inspires Sue Ellen with a plot for her graphic novel: a war between circles and triangles. Circles were happy, bouncy and whole, while triangles liked arguing and having a point. How can they get along? When she gets writer's block, her "inner Neil Gaiman" shows up and gives her inspiration to keep going.

At first, her friends don't get it, but at the Sugar Bowl, inner-Neil tells her that she should not write for other people, but for herself, and that her friends would come around in time. After much writing and imagination throughtout the episode, she is left with a great graphic novel that her friends enjoy.
