Eventually, he was able to inform her that he was a cop sent to tell her about her son's tragic death in an accident - only to reveal that no, he actually ''is'' the stripper! [[MoodWhiplash Cue him and the other ladies cheering while the woman stands there speechless]].
** Played with in another skit in the same episode. A utility worker later shows up to the same party to warn them about a gas leak. Unfortunately for him, everyone mistakes him for another stripper, and his warnings for innuendo - until the house they're all in explodes.
