Loopy curvy deliciousness

Does the intersection of a torus and a gravity-bent plane always result in a bezier curve?

I don't know what I'm talking about. I did math up through linear algebra and 3 semesers of calculus -- but -- -
I feel that there is an interesting idea space that combines mandelbrot, bezier, mobius, escher, and fluid dynamics. This is a wholly intuitive notion, coming from a very analytic person.
Cut me down, call me nasty names. I can't follow the math anymore. Please let me know if there are connections here, or if I should just go make pasta.
[tangential: I'd love to see a PhD thesis on the topography of pasta]
