- You better start caring.
Have you ever heard the phrase, "Winner, winner, chicken dinner"? Well, this fancy reception is the chicken dinner, and they're going to be judging you to make sure you don't screw up.
And you're going to need to be perfect, or they're not going to let you win.
Oh, no.
I don't know how to do fancy.
- Jeff, will you help me? - Okay.
It's not going to be easy.
This baby's got every rule a guy needs to make a great impression.

Then you sniff it, and then you take a very small sip.
All right.
Twirl.
- The main course.
- Ooh.
I only had Ruff Riders Chicken to work with.
Just pretend it's finely cooked goose.
Do you think that fancy people ever try to eat like this? Ow! You eat goose with a fork, Clarence.
- Now, which fork do you use? - Hmm.
- Aah! - That fork's for salad.
Mm.
- Aah! - That's a bread fork.
I'm hungry.
No elbows on the table.
You're opening your mouth too wide! You're gripping your fork wrong! Ow.
Uh, Jeff, my body stings.
I think I'm going to go home.
Sorry I'm being so hard on you, but your reception dinner is tomorrow.
Here, study tonight, and I'll quiz you first thing in the morning.
Okay.
Oh, and make sure to work on that posture, Clarence.
