She then uses the next item in the diet kit, a pair of glasses; these cause her to see food as sentient and able to communicate with her. Her conversations with some fruit and a JELL-O mold are largely PlayedForLaughs...[[MoodWhiplash until the ending]], where, despite growing famished, the woman can't bring herself to eat her "friends" and ''sews her own mouth shut'', starving to death.

* PlayedWith on ''Series/BabylonFive'': [[DaChief Garibaldi]] is ordered by Dr. Franklin to go on a restricted diet (or rather... a ''[[InsistentTerminology food plan]]'') because of various problems his body is suffering due to the after effects of being shot InTheBack by TheMole in an earlier season. Meanwhile, [[TheCaptain Captain Sheridan]] is ordered to eat what he considers "Rabbit Food" because he has gained ten pounds since his previous exam. [[TheLancer Commander Ivanova]] is ordered to eat more because she is suffering nutrition deficiencies because she doesn't eat enough healthy food; in addition, this is messing with her recovery from her broken foot (from the previous episode).

[[TheLancer Commander Ivanova]] is ordered to eat more because she is suffering nutrition deficiencies because she doesn't eat enough healthy food; in addition, this is messing with her recovery from her broken foot (from the previous episode). Since all three of them are required to eat something that they hate and one of the others loves, this results in a scene where Garibaldi takes Ivonova's pasta, Sheridan takes Garibaldi's steak, and Ivonova takes Sheridan's salad and they try (Unsuccessfully) to eat them before Dr Franklin arrives in the mess.
