It seems that Fox aired the last two episodes in the right order, so that is good. This episode written by Tracy Tormé himself, starts off with Quinn in jail and his lawyer telling him that he needs to take the insanity pled, if he tells the judge about Sliding they would let him go. He tells her he isn't crazy.
In court the next day we find out that the crime is spray painting an over pass and the sentence is death. Damn this world believes in overkill! They open the vortex, beat up the cops and take Quinn through the vortex. He is still wearing the handcuffs. They have 3 days on this Earth and everyone here seems happy. Laughing a lot, all while looking at Remy. Someone asks him if he is here for the crying man convention. Arturo points out it means that they aren't home but Remy says this world is better. That people here are smarter and more enlightened here. They get swarmed by fans so they sneak into the hotel that always has the same guy running it. He is a huge fan of Remy. Quinn starts picking the locks of his cuffs with help from Wade.
It turns out on this world Remy died 8 years ago. The news showed footage of our Remy walking and now everyone thinks that Remy has returned from the dead. The news comes to talk to his old manager for the convention. It turns out that our Remy turned this manger down on our world and he is the one who turned this Remy into Elvis more or less. The manger finds out that our Remy is here and thinks that he is the real one. He wants to find him and restart his career as well.
Remy's fans tear him apart and Arturo as well when he goes to save him. The police get the manager inside. He tells Remy that he set up a concert that will pay a million dollars a song. Quinn points out that they slide at 9 and that would be in the middle of the show. It is too much of a risk but Remy says he is doing it. Wade points out that even a few songs would fix all their money problems. As the Sliders sneak out the back a fan knocks Remy out and kidnaps him.
The Remy from this world learns about the concert on TV while the manger talks the Sliders out of calling the cops. Quinn calls anyways. Remy learns that his kidnapper is one of the spinning tops. The name of his group. He tells Remy to sign a letter saying that he stole all his ideas from him and Remy just starts laughing. This guy is crazy.
The double walks in, he is a thinner version of Remy. He said he faked his death to get out of the business. The actor who plays him is the twin brother of the man who plays Remy. He tells the Sliders that he had the kidnapper locked up since he is crazy and if he has their Remy he will kill him. The sliders also tell this worlds Remy that they are Sliders and from another world. He has a hard time believing it, after all who wouldn't?
The concert is going badly, the manager just keeps putting fake Remy's on stage. Meanwhile the Sliders and this world's Remy find him and save our Remy. The two Remy's meet and are weirded out about it all. Our Remy is jealous that this Remy got everything he ever wanted and walked away from it. This Remy talks about how it all just became too much of a good thing. This Remy tells our Remy that he can have his life, our Remy jumps at it and this world Remy tells him to be careful for what he wishes for.
Remy tells the Sliders that he is staying here. They aren't happy about it but there is nothing they can do. Remy says goodbye to the Sliders and tell Quinn that he is sorry for all the times he blamed Quin for everything. This worlds Remy comes to watch the show. Wade lets it slip that the concert is a million dollars a song and he freaks out. The Sliders take off to find a place to slide away when this worlds Remy comes out on stage. Lucky Quinn spots him. Our Remy is at a loss. Now both Remys fight it out on who is the real one with a sing off. This world's Remy sells ours out as an imposter and sends him away. There goes Remy's dreams. It is all over for him, at least on this world. The poor guy.
Remy hopes on the next world he will be even bigger. Well he is still the king, just one of many who sells ice cream. Poor guy.
