Lipton had an evil clone. The Clone had tricked Tiffanie into thinking he was Lipton and broke up with her. Then he kidnapped Lipton and left him in Africa to survive.
Almost an entire year passed. The Clone got bored with his evil life fairly quickly. He wondered if Tiffanie might like to be with him again, since Lipton was probably dead by now.
He went to Tiffanie's apartment one night and was about to knock at the door, but to his surprise, it sounded like the real Lipton had returned!
"Have I... failed?"
