Throughout the film, a character simply known as "The Government" is seen stalking random people just to abruptly stop them to ask about their pet-peeve.
Cheyenne, Carol's best friend, congratulates Carol on being single and encourages her to set up an online dating profile, where Carol gets matched instantly with Birdman, who is a giant anthropomorphic bird. Carol goes on a date with Birdman where he encourages her to eat white food and walk in the cemetery.
The next day, Carol reads a book that teaches her how to talk to her plants and animals. As Carol meditates, her cat starts talking to her and warns her about sexual endeavors. Birdman then arrives and makes rude sexual advances towards Carol. These advances get progressively worse until Carol forces Birdman to leave. Carol then has an extensive scene where she bathes herself and gets advice from her pet fish who tells her to "learn to fight".
Taking advice from the fish, Carol finds herself in a self defense course where she learns to defend herself and channel her anger towards Twinky Boy.
Carol then meets Rodney, who is a red faced devil with a phallic shaped nose. Carol and Rodney hit it off immediately since Rodney uses his psychic powers to manipulate Carol's tarot cards. The two make love until Rodney shouts that he is going to take Carol's soul.
In the next scene, Carol and Cheyenne have a discussion about how men only tell the truth when they are about to climax.
Carol's mom comes over and encourages Carol to stay with Rodney.
Carol, Rodney, Cheyenne and her boyfriend Joe, then go on a picnic. It is revealed that Rodney is best friend's with birdman. Carol offers some cookies to the group that contain coconut, which Rodney is allergic to. Rodney spits all over the rest of the cookies and then blocks Carol on his cellphone.
Days pass and Carol gets a phone call from Rodney who wants to come over. Rodney immediately knocks on the door, enters, and asks for a foot rub. Frustrated, Carol argues with Rodney and breaks up with him. There is an extensive scene where Rodney is seen scaring small children and animals.
Carol is then seen doing an online workout video, watched by Twinky Boy. Norman, Twinky Boy's lawyer brother, knocks on the door and informs Carol that her divorce will take place soon. Carol then drives to Twinky Boy's house and begs him to not take everything she has. Twinky Boy calls her a terrible person.
In divorce court, the judge gives Twinky Boy 4 of Carol's 5 dollars and her car. Using a drum, Carol announces that she is not going to let men bully her anymore. She then hallucinates Buddha and Shiva, who give her advice.
Carol then gets a phone call from a Jamaican man who tells her that she won the lottery.
Months pass and Carol is enjoying her life of riches. Reading a magazine, she finds out that Twinky Boy has been arrested. She then gets a call from Twinky Boy. He begs her for some bail money and Carol refuses. She tells him that a woman like her doesn't need a man to be happy. She then hangs up on him and lives out her days, happily rich and single.
