Funeral

1 I, uh, brought Mom a toilet because I broke hers.
Is she here? She ain't here, honey.
Where is she? Welcome to the Denver International Airport.
Chip, I'm out of town and I need you to take Meemaw to her doctor's appointment.
Esther, do that little dance you do.
A 5, 6, 7, 8! (CRUNCHING) (PHONE RINGS) Hello? Sorry for your loss.
Tell me a little bit about your mother? Oh, she's um She was, uh A complicated woman.
No, just her size.
Oh, her size.
She's petite.
Actually, we have a really great option on mothers.
Uh, the Mother Casket.
It comes very, very highly rated.
Whose rating it, ghosts? 18 gauge steel.
Painted lilac finish.
Hmm.
I guess I'll take that one.
Your mother's gonna love it.
Chip, Martha! There's only one of them.
Which one is that, which one is that? I can't tell from this far away.
Oh, God.
Uh, it may be Logan.
Yeah, it may be Logan or it may be Cody, right? Does he have a black eye? Yes, it's a black guy.
They're both black.
- Hey.
- Hey, what's going on? How you doing? All is well.
What's going on? Where's my other brother? Logan? Oh, he's driving in from L.
A.
Coop, that one's Cody.
Yeah, Martha.
So nice to see you, Cody.
Good to see you.
It kinda sucks, you know, Grandma dying and all.
Yeah, it's rough.
It's rough.
- Martha.

Good to see you.
Um, what happened to your eye? This? Collateral party damage.
Oh.

Thank you, oh.
Hey, Mom.
Oh, Cody.
I'm so sorry for your loss.
Thank you, Cody.
Oh, so nice of you boys to make it.
I know how busy you are with your DJing schedule.
What happened to your eye? Hey, Dale? Where's the family? Who cares? He's under stress.
Hey, Barbara.
Uncle Jim.
- Hey.
- Hey.
How are you doing? Good.
How are you? Little Dale.
Christine's boy.
Right, right, Dale.
- Yeah.
- Yeah.
How you been? Well, I'm I'm doing okay.
You're Chip's brother.
Yeah.
Yeah, Chip's brother.
How you been? Oh, well, getting audited over at the school.
Uh, gonna have to do some budget cuts.
You know, I was gonna maybe pick your brain about bankruptcy.
And, uh, I just thought, maybe, you know, there's Uncle Jim.
He knows about this kind of stuff.
I don't.
I've never been audited.
I've never been bankrupt.
Okay.
I'm going to go say hi to your mom.
Okay, sure.
Hey, Dorothy.
Hey, Walt.
Guess who? Jim? My brother, I'd know those hands.
- My little lady.
- Welcome.
Long time, no see, huh? Where's Sherry and the kids, Jim? - Cabo.
- Oh, God.
Yeah, Quizno's franchise owners.
Big deal, I had to slip out.
- They're still there.
- Oh, God.
Yeah, I know, it's just very bad timing, this whole thing.
Yeah.
I was out of town.
- Really? Where were you? - I was up in the mile-high city.
My God.
I got some things going that are pretty exciting, Jim.
- I'm excited about them.
- That's good.
I wish Mom was here for them, though.
I know, it's just very emotional for both of us right now.
It's listen, is Herb Whatsits still handling Mom and Dad's financials? Of course, he's sharp as a tack.
Is he here today? I think so.
Yeah, there he is over there.
Are you sure this isn't his funeral? Oh, Jim.
So silly.
Oh, Martha? - Yeah? - Could you get Lambchop? I don't want her peeing there.
That dog pees everywhere.
I've seen it.
You know, I don't think she has to pee.
I think she just misses her Meemaw, probably.
Yeah, okay.
How are you doing? I'm good, keeping myself busy.
You know, we've got, you know, people coming over to pay their respects and that's always a nice thing.
Yeah.
You know.
I, uh remember that guy? - Yeah? - I went to see him.
Oh, that's great, Mrs.
Baskets.
Denver.
And you were right.
There was a sexual vibe.
Did I say that? You did, and I had a terrific time, Martha.
That city, it's like, you know So high, so technically, I guess, you know, I'm part of the mile-high club.
Well, that's great.
I know, I had so much fun I got caught up in it.
I forgot about my kids, I forgot about my house.
I forgot about my mom.
I should've been here.
I was supposed to take her to that appointment.
And, um I just feel like I killed her.
You didn't, Mrs.
Baskets.
It wasn't your fault.
Well, Martha, I hope you're right.
- (DOORBELL RINGS) - I'm sure I'm right.
Are they here already? When I die I'd like to be scattered in the Pacific Ocean.
You mean like your ashes scattered? Or your body parts? Martha, Martha, Martha, looking beautiful like always.
Chip, what's up, baby? Cod.
Hello.
Yo, man, can I talk to you outside for a sec? Naw, whatever you got to say, you can say it in front of Martha and Chip.
Come on, man, this ain't the place.
(SIGHS) All right, fine, man.
Oh Oh.
Was that weird? I just needed a little space.
No, not that.
I think something's going on with Cody and Logan.
They're not speaking in unison as much.
God, if I had to spend that much time with Dale, I'd be angry, too.
Ain't enough whiskey in the whiskey salad.
Hard to get drunk.
Maybe you should go check on them.
I mean, you do cheer people up for a living.
Where's Logan? Huh? - Where's Logan? - Oh, man, he bounced.
Everything going okay with you guys and the Chemical Brothers tour? Mm-hmm, it's cool, it's cool.
No, what's new with you? Oh, I was homeless and saw a guy get cut in half by a train.
Uh-huh, mm-hmm.
Other than that, not much going on.
Right, right.
Tight.
Tight.
To be honest, Chip, the Chemical Brothers fired us a few weeks ago.
What? Yeah, man.
Logan hooked up with one of their girls, they weren't happy about it.
Man, oh man, that's not relatable at all, but I understand.
That's a bummer.
Plus a lot of guys want to punch Logan in the face.
And since I got the same face as him that's been difficult.
Oh, God, yeah, of course.
Yeah.
Plus I haven't seen Logan in a month.
Shacked up with this girl, and now he's talking about going solo.
Well, maybe maybe he could talk to Mom about it.
Uh-uh.
Mom can't know about this.
All right? Grammy's death, this would kill her.
Now, how would that look? I mean, we're the Basket brothers.
I mean, us falling apart? Oh, naw.
It don't even look right.
Yeah.
Well, we got to nip this in the bud.
Yeah, we need to.
Hey, Dale, can we borrow your van? We got to go get Logan.
Does the place you're going have booze? Oh, yeah.
I'm driving.
Look out.
You can hold that.
Thanks.
All right, let's go.
Bye, guys.
Martha, could you start picking up everyone's trash? - Um, sure, Mrs.
Baskets.
- Thank you.
Thanks.
I'll meet you guys in there.
I've got to make a phone call.
What do you want to drink? Whatever you're having.
That will be two mimosas on the rocks.
No ice, no ice, Dale.
(PHONE RINGS) Hello? Hi, Penelope, it's Chip.
Hello? Can you hear me? Penelope, it's Chip.
Chip Baskets.
Chip-oo! Oh, how nice to hear you.
Well, listen I'll just get right to the point, Penelope.
Do you remember my DJ twin brothers? Sure.
I was hoping to maybe find them a gig with maybe an established DJ or a band.
You know, an opening act situation.
Um, and I thought since you were in the music business, that maybe you had some connections.
I know it's stupid, Penelope.
No, no, no, it's okay.
I'm looking at my contact here.
- Oh really? - I have a lot of friends IN MUSIC: Basement Jaxx, Twin DJ.
Uh, Sneaker Pimp.
Oh, God, Penelope, if you could do this, it would be really, really helpful.
Uh, so thank you very, very much.
It's so nice to hear you Chips.
Really.
Really beautiful to hear your nice little voice.
It's nice to hear your your voice, too, Penelope.
(PENELOPE CHUCKLES) I miss you sometime.
You do? Yes.
Sometime I think of your stupid joke and I miss you.
Huh, okay.
Well, I mean, you have my number now, so you can, you can, uh you can call me any time you want if you like.
I have a new cellular phone.
It's pink.
You take good care, yeah? Okay, yes, so you'll just maybe call me and let me know if you get in touch with anybody.
Yes, I'll, I'll, um I'll text some DJ I know and I'll call you back, okay? Okay, great.
Uh, thanks, Penelope.
I'll talk to you right away.
Oh, look at that.
Who am I holding there? (LAUGHING) I have no idea who that is.
Oh, oh, no.
Hey, what are you doing up there? Exactly.
What are you doing up there? Oh, you know mom used to let her eat on the table with her - No way.
- For company.
Oh, come on.
Oh, it not gonna hurt anything.
Are you kidding? There germs all over the place now.
You know what Dad would do if he saw this thing up here? Kick that thing right out of here.
You know, that's right, Dad would've kicked the dog out of there.
Like he kicked us Oh, he spanked us all the time for no reason.
No, he only spanked us when there was a reason.
And there were a lot of good reasons.
I think you you're a little cloudy in your memories.
For instances, look here.
This is all of us in front of the car Yeah, on Mom's birthday he got Mom flowers and he got himself a new car.
- It was horrible.
- It was great! - Oh my God, that's was the worst.
- Camping.
Dad was so cheap he wouldn't even pay for a cabin.
You know, I don't like what you're insinuating about Dad.
In fact, I think you're making a lot of this stuff up just to cover your own problems in your own family.
You know what? It's been a long day, Jim.
I'm gonna take you back to the hotel.
(LOUD MUSIC) That's such great news.
Thanks so much.
Okay, bye.
Did you find Logan? Over there with them.
You never know, but that's the reason I don't make corn muffins.
(LAUGHING) Hey, uh, listen, do you guys happen to have a video of you, I don't know, DJing or whatever it is you do? Naw, we did have a joint YouTube account, but Logan deleted it.
Mimosas! Cheers, guys.
- Cheers, Bro.
- Chin-chin.
Oh, I'm gonna get fried tonight.
- Hey, Dale.
- Yeah, buddy? Can you help me make a video of these two DJing? Is that possible? What are you talking about? We're in a bar right now.
DJ with what? If we can get a video e-mailed out tonight of you guys disc jockeying or whatever it is, there maybe a slot open on this future tour, maybe.
That's it.
That sounds good and all, I mean, but I don't know if Logan's down.
I'll-- I'll work on Logan.
I'll work on Logan.
- You sure? - Yes, I promise.
All right, then, Bro, I'll take your word then.
Okay, so, what do you need? I mean, what kind of things do we need to get this thing going? We need two computers.
- Computers? - Yeah, computers.
Well, I can get you a laptop or two if that's what you need.
I'm never gonna remember the combination.
Let me try this.
Um Here, take this one.
- This one? - I'm just gonna, let's see.
You know what? Just try grabbing it.
Just give it a good, tight - Dale? - Chris, God! Why aren't you at your AA meeting? I don't drink.
Well, maybe you should, loosen your ass up.
Oh, I was just getting things ready for the audit.
Okay, why don't you want, a parade? Um, this is my brother, uh Cody, nice to meet you, honey.
You, too.
Okay, we'll just take our leave.
Um I forgot to disconnect myself.
Uh, don't forget, I own the joint, so nothing about this in the comment box.
Well, listen, thank you for bringing me back.
Thank you for everything you did today for the tribute, and for Mom and everything.
It was nice, wasn't it? It was very nice.
Whiskey salad was amazing.
I haven't had that in Yeah.
Can't remember the last time I had that.
It's too bad we had to get that whole thing about Dad.
You know, I mean, I know he was hard.
I know he was hard on everybody.
But he was always fair.
No, no.
You've got it wrong again.
I thought you were off that.
You're back on it? He was a mean drunk.
Oh.
He was selfish and he was cruel.
Well And especially to Mom.
The older she got, the meaner he got towards her.
He only got mean when he drank.
Oh, come on.
He was so bad.
And that's the reason that I got mom her own separate burial plot.
Wait a minute, what do you mean? Mom already has a burial plot, it's next to Dad.
It's already paid for.
I don't care.
I didn't want her spending eternity with that cruel, mean man.
Oh I wanted her to rest in peace.
You know what that means? Yeah, I know what that mean.
- R.
I.
P? - R.
I.
P.
, yeah, yeah, yeah.
Yeah.
Well, now you know if you thought Dad was so fair and you liked him so much, why don't you take that plot? I'll see you tomorrow.
Okay.
Hey, we're here.
Yo, what's she doing here? Come on, man, leave her out of this! Okay, guys, let's get these computers hooked up so we can get this audition tape out, okay? What, for the traveling rodeo? Huh, Chip? No.
Have you ever heard of a band called the Sneaker Pimps? Because I haven't.
- Yeah.
- Yeah.
Yeah, it's for them.
Sneaker? Oh, man, here we go.
What's the point, man? This dude is uptight all the time.
The Chemical Brothers let us go.
The Sneaker Pimps gonna do the same thing with this attitude.
Are you kidding me? Look at my eye.
You know what? Forget it, man, I'm out of here.
Yo, if he's out of here, I'm out of here.
- Let go of me! - Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa.
Hold on one second, this is not about you guys.
This is about our mother who lost her mother.
Our grandmother, Meemaw.
So you two need to figure out whatever's going on because brotherhood is really important.
So, Cody, you want to say something-- Bro, it's Logan.
I, I know that.
You're Cody or Logan? - I'm Cody.
- Yeah.
Just just, just say something to him.
Okay? Do you have anything you want to say? I'm sorry that the Chemical Brothers punched you instead of me.
And I'm sorry I put the Chemical Brothers in a headlock, made them kiss each other, say "I love you", then I bunched their heads together.
I can't believe we almost let the Chemical Brothers come between us.
They not even real brothers, but we are.
- I love you.
- I love you.
Makayla? Makayla.
Come here, Sis.
I'm sorry.
We shall never hug like that.
Ditto.
Okay, guys can we get to disc jockeying? - Yo man, let's get to DJing.
- Yo man, let's get to DJing.
- Let's do this.
- Let's do what we do.
- Ah-ha! - Come on, guys.
Okay guys, I'm recording.
B-b-b-b the Basket Brothers (TECHNO) B-b-b-b Basket brothers Hey, how are you? I miss her, too.
I miss her, too.
I miss her, too.
And so we meet, then, to say goodbye and to reflect upon the life of Esther Roosevelt.
A loving mother, grandmother and child of God.
It's okay, Mom.
- Now I'll read from the - (BELCHES) Book of Revelations.
So I looked and behold, a pale horse.
How are you doing, sweetie? And the name of him who sat on it was death.
You look like Wednesday.
From the Addams family.
- It's a good look.
- You look like crap.
Well, I feel worse.
Feel like there's a hurricane going on inside my stomach.
With death and the wild beasts of the earth.
I am reading the wrong one.
That one's a little graphic and I apologize.
I think what I'm trying to say, ultimately, is that she lived a good life.
So now why don't we bow our heads and take a moment of silence.
(PHONE RINGS) Give me a break.
Hello? Hi.
No, it's a good time to talk.
Okay.
I can let them know.
Guys.
- What's up, Bro? - The Sneaker Pimps? - Yeah? - Yeah, yeah? They saw your video.
- Yeah.
- And they want you to open for them.
You serious, Bro? Bro, good talking.
Good talking, Bro.
You're a lifesaver.
And in his name we pray.
Amen.
Okay, let's put her down under.
(SOBBING) - Mom, it's okay.
- Mom, it's okay.
Sorry.
Where's Dale? Coming, Mama.
It's okay.
It's okay.
(SOBBING) (BELCHES)
