Good morning.
[ Turns Off Radio .]
[ Sighs .]
- [ Sizzling .]
- [ Gasps .]
Don'tyou die on me, you bastard! You've never given up on anything before.
Fight, damn you, fight! [ Takes Deep Breath .]
- [ Electrical Buzzing .]
- [ Screaming .]
Code Red! My manual for the E.
weapons system is AWOL.
Drop everything and help me find it! I said, drop everything! - But Stan- - Drop it! - [ Sighs .]
- Good.
Now, clean that up and help me look.
Hey, Dad.
I wanna ask out Carly Mills.
How can I make her like me? - By finding my manual.
Chicks dig that.
- [ Monkey Screams .]
My manual! Hayley, what the hell is that? My animal rights group rescued him from a product testing lab.
These poor creatures are being shampooed up to 1 0 times a day! - Get it out of my house! - I can't.
Everyone's counting on me to give it sanctuary until its hair loses its volume and luster! ## [Shampoo Commercial.]
Morning, everybody.
Hey, look.
That monkey has a Hayley on its ass.
- Oh, go to hell.
- Are you drunk? Workin' on it.
, I backed into myTV, and it died.
- So I need a new one.
- Too bad.
I'm still paying off that Ab-Loungeyou never used.
Hey, that was false advertising.
Ifthey called it a "lounge," it should come with martinis and guys in ironic trucker hats, like on The O.
Which I'm missing, 'cause I have no TV.
- And here we are.
- Forget it.
But I'm a shut-in.
TV's all I have.
You thinkyou have problems? I'm demonstrating a new weapon today and I have no idea how it works.
What ifl kill someone? [ Gasps .]
- What ifl don't kill someone? - Speaking ofkilling you know what the French call an "orgasm"? "The little death.
" It harks back to the Middle Ages when only midgets were allowed to have orgasms.
It's true! Read the Bible.
Senators, I am proud to present - the exoskeletal weapons system.
- [ Whirring .]
- Hmm.
- For though the E.
is a killing machine it can also perform the most delicate oftasks be it defusing a bomb, or adjusting the pearls ofa handsome woman from California.
- Senator Feinstein? - [ Chuckling .]
- Areyou sure it's safe? - In less skilled hands, absolutely not! You'd be torn asunder! But so great is my confidence in Agent Smith that I am putting my reputation, and your life, in his hands.
[ Beeping, Twittering .]
- Uh, sir? - Not now, Smith.
Behold! Man and machine in an elegant pas de deux ofprecision and finesse.
- [ Clicks .]
- [ Hydraulics Running .]
- [ Clicking, Whirring .]
- [Screaming.]
[ Frantic Groaning .]
Agent Smith,you're out ofcontrol! It's not like I killed her.
Hell, she should thank me.
- Now she can parkwherever she wants.
- Your boss was pretty steamed.
Oh, you wouldn't believe the way he tore into me, Doyle.
I mean, worse than the roughest gay pornoyou ever had to do to pay offyour gambling losses at the Belaggio.
- [ Chuckles .]
Wha'? - Yeah.
You-You've got quite the backstory, don'tyou? - [ Beeping .]
- Steve? Putyour mom on.
- Hey, is that Stan? - Did you buy me a TV? For cryin' out loud, quit nagging me, you harpy! My God! That's how he talks to his wife? How else can I getyou to listen? You don't respect me.
Why should I respectyou? You're fat and lazy! Send Hayley down to the Cloak to pick me up or I'll kickyour ass when I get home! Poor Francine! She's so sweet and kind.
And pretty.
Oh, great.
I know where this is goin'.
Can I at least watch this time? [ Groaning .]
It's about time, Hayley.
Who the hell areyou? Genius, it's me.
Styled the wig myself.
[ Chuckles .]
- I look great.
Get in! - [ Starts Engine .]
Here we are.
Thank God! I just want to go upstairs, and sleep this off, and- Big Buy? What the hell? - [ Clicking .]
- Ah-ah! Not till you buy me a new TV.
I will never buyyou a TV! - Fine! Then you can walk home! - [ Revs Engine .]
- [ Crashing.]
- You idiot! - [Siren Wailing.]
- Cops already? What, are we next door to a freakin' Krispy Kreme? You're thinking about doughnuts, now? No, I'm just sayin' the cops got here fast.
What the hell do fast cops have to do with a Krispy Kreme? - Because cops love doughnuts! - You are not making any sense! [ Siren Winding Down .]
Good evening, Officer, is there a- [ Retches .]
- [ Beeping .]
- Hey, Stan? Now thatyou're stuck at home, I could really useyour input on redecorating the living room.
The court order says I'm not allowed to leave the house.
It doesn't say I have to give a crap about what it looks like.
Come on! What doyou think ofthis Incan wish bowl? They say ifyou touch it and make a wish, it'll come true.
I wished it would look good on this table.
[ Gasps .]
- And it does! - Well, yes.
But there's gotta be a scientific explanation.
- Bye, everyone.
Don't wait up.
- Where the hell doyou thinkyou're going? - I got fourth row at Mamma Mia! - What? You can't leave the house! Well, what am I supposed to do here? I don't have a TV, remember? You thinkyou can stick me with a D.
I and then head offto a fabulous show you know I've been dying to see? - No way! - Says who? - Says me, head ofthis household.
- Well, you suck at it! Oh, dear.
Roger is touching the Incan wish bowl.
You thinkyou could do any better? You wouldn't last a day in my shoes.
- All you know how to do is bitch.
- [ Gasps .]
Stan is also touching the wish bowl.
I have a bad feeling about this.
I bitch because I have no power around here, bitch.
Ifl did, we'd all be a lot happier! [ Together.]
I wish we could trade places.
- [Guttural Throbbing.]
- What is that? - [Tempo Increases .]
- What's happening? Klaus, stop it! Give me that.
You'll break it.
So, were you serious about trading places? Hey, you want to get a job, pay the bills, deal with everyone's problems? Be my guest.
When it all gets too much foryou - I'll be getting drunk up in the attic! - Fine! See howyou like life on the bottom rung! I'll be a better man ofthe house than you everwere! Ifthat were a real wish bowl, it would be in the Ferrari ofa 600-year-old Incan on the way to his job as Jessica Alba's G-string.
Stan? As long as you're still under house arrest I might as well giveyou a conjugal visit.
- Mornin', friendly.
- [Screaming.]
Stan, how long areyou and Roger gonna keep up this ridiculous swap? Until he appreciates how hard it is to be me! Trust me, by the end ofthe day, he'll be a nervous wreck.
Ta-da! How do I look? Employable? Or very employable? - Is that my pantsuit? - Yeah.
It's a little drab but I "shuzzed" it up with a white belt.
Dad, I really need your help with Carly Mills.
- I burn for her.
- Hey, I'm the man ofthe house now.
I'll helpya.
- What's she like? - Um, well, she's a cheerleader.
Got it! Rah-rahs like hunkyjocks, right? Just do some pushups! She'll be all overya, Tiger.
- Great idea, Roger! - Down low.
Too slow.
[ Mock Growling, Laughing .]
- Poor kid.
Never really had a father.
- [ Grunts .]
Hey, Mom.
When you go to the market, can you pick up some insect larva? - Write it down.
- Hayley, I said no monkeys! And I said it was okay.
I'm gonna build a habitat in the basement.
Well, habitat slash theaterworkshop.
In six weeks, we'll have the best all-monkey production of Cats you've ever seen.

They've been huffing paint thinner and having sex all night.
It's like an 8th-grade house party down there.
God, my animal rights group is gonna think I'm a total flake! Thanks for nothing.
- [ Groans .]
- Roger, I knowyou're busy, but this'll just take a second.
You suck, Roger! I gave these pictures you took to Carly and she posted them on HatefulTeens.
Everyone's laughing at me! You know, Dad wasn't perfect but at least he never ruined my life! [ Groans .]

Oh, my God! These Chocodiles, these Chocodiles, Francine, oh, my God.

Oh! I'm so sorry! It was an accident.
I-I'm just under so much pressure.
This is all thanks toyour stupid swap with Stan.
Stan? Oh, God.
Francine, he can't know about this.
He'll kill me.
Just tell him you walked into a door.
He'll never buy that.
God, I look awful.

Domo arigato.
Another sale? Wow, Maria doesn't have a prayer.

- I owe it all toyou, Philip.
[Honking Horn .]
File this contract for me, will ya? I'm gonna go "curry" their favor.
- [ Rings .]
- What doyou bet this "domestic abuse" call turns out bogus? Well, the neighbor said this guy's already on house arrest for D.
Can I helpyou? - How'd you get that shiner, Mrs.
S? - It's not whatyou think.
She walked into a door.
[ Chuckles .]

Stan, please! No more violence! - I 'll kill him! - You can't leave! You're still under house arr- [ Screams, Grunts .]
Oh, my eye! I deserved it, for leaving the mop out.
- [Pistol Cocking.]
- Holdit right there, dirtbag! - Kiss my ass, pigs! - [ Electrical Buzzing .]
[ Shouts, Groans .]
Hi, uh, hope this isn't a bad time, but your trash cans have been out on the curb for a week, so, you know, whenever.
Listen up, everyone.
The contest is over.
Time to announce the winner.
Oh, my God.
This is it.
The trip to Hawaii goes to our number-one salesperson, Philip! - Philip? - What? He sold twice as many cars as anyone.
But-But these are my sales.
Well, they all have Philip's sales number on 'em.
You didn't sell any.
You're fired.
I thought I was your pal.
[ Crying .]
[ Sinister Chuckling .]
- What the hell areyou doing here? - You're pretty mad at me.
Mad? Whywould I be mad? Just because I'm being held without bail for domestic abuse, animal cruelty, child pornography and attempted murder? - Attempted murder? - [ Muffled .]
Aah! I'll kill you! You're dead! You're- [ Screams .]
- So, yes.
I'm pretty mad.
- I know this doesn't really matter now but you win.
- Huh? - You're a better man ofthe house than I am.
I don't know how you manage to do everything you do but this family's lucky to haveyou.
- And so am I.
- Oh, I- - I-I don't know what to say.
- Ah, you could say you have a whole new appreciation for how tough it is to be me.
There's something you should know about me by now, Roger.
I don't learn lessons.
Now, ifI'm gonna get out ofhere we need to start doing things myway.
The C.
We need a patsy.
- A patsy? - Someone we can frame for everything.
Someone vile.
An evil person, who deserves to be punished.
- Any ideas? - [ Hangs Up Receiver.]
Got it! These people are insane! I'm innocent.
That's the man who broke into my home and punched me.
Right before he locked all those poor monkeys in our basement.
And took pictures of my no-no parts.
He made me call him "Uncle Bad Touch!" [ Cries .]
I've never seen them before in my life.
They're obviously lying, to protect the father.
- But whywould theywant to finger this guy? - [ Giggling .]
We searched his apartment.
The place was clean.
Except for this.
He's got tons of Nazi stuff.
Some kind ofweird collector, I guess.
Sir, can you explain this? Yeah, I'm a member of the Anti-Zionist Aryan Brotherhood.
So what? This is America! - He's right.
That stuffis legal.
- So, what doyou want to do, Lieutenant Goldberg? [His VoiceAs A Child.]
Don't go, Papa! [Father's Voice .]
Run, Nathan! Run as fast asyou can and go to America, become a police offiicer, and rise up through the ranks.
Then, one day, you can use your power to avenge us all.
- [ Dogs Barking .]
- [ Young Goldberg .]
Papa! - [ Nazi .]
Schnel l! Macht schnel l! - [ Dogs Barking .]
- Put hi m i n my car.
- But- - Do it! - Oh! What do you think this is? - Nazi Germany? - You are free to do.
- [Philip .]
That would be awesome! - [ Family Cheering .]
Never thought I'd say this, but I missed having you in charge.
Well, I never thought I'd say this - but I loveyou guys! - Oh, Stan! Bye-bye! Seeyou soon!
