Remember me? No.
I sold you this house five years ago.
Oh, okay.
Um, well, what can I do for you? Well, I was in the neighborhood and I thought I'd just pop in and see how my house is doing if that's okay with you.
Actually, I'm sorry, I've got some dinner guests, so.
Well, I won't take but a minute.
I was so happy in this house.
I lived here for 50 years.
Raised all my children here.
Is that okay? - Yeah, I yeah, okay.

It was very cold and I happen to like it.
And you know what? It happens to be my house, so And what have you done in here? Where's the wonderful wallpaper I put up? The wallpaper with the pirates? Are you kidding? It was the first thing I took down when I moved in.
Well, I guess it's your house.
You can do anything you want to.

- In the nest.
And then I'm, like, looking.
I couldn't even find the goods because the Afro was so intense.
Yeah, okay, all right.
I think I think we've heard enough of that story.
- Sorry, Lar.
- But, Larry, she has so many funny stories about her exes.
I've been hearing them for years.
- They're hilarious.
- Yeah, I'm sure.
- Yeah.
- Remember the one you told me about? - The guy who the leaner? - Yeah, the leaner.
- Yes.
- The Leaning Tower of Pisa? - That guy? - The Leaning Tower of Peter.
Yeah, oh, that's that's a good one, too.
- That was a good one.
- BRIDGET: I know, I know.
And then Todd, this other guy Oh, yeah.

Oh, my God.
I don't believe it.
This room used to be so warm and inviting.
Shapiro, what are what are you doing? - Well, I just - I thought you left.
Well, I was just looking around.
- It used to be so different.

Uh, she wanted to look around.
And the house was so much better when I had it.
- I don't know what he's done with this.
- Okay, you need to go now.
- Well, you don't have to be rude about it.
- You're the one being rude.
You come in here and you're criticizing my house.
You don't live here anymore.
That's right, keep going.
- (DOOR OPENS) - Yeah, and now close it.
- Close it.
- (DOOR CLOSES) - TED: Go go back to the leaner.
- Okay.
(LAUGHS) The Leaning Tower of Peter? - (ALL LAUGHING) - Oh, and he was a biter, too.
He used to bite me on the ass.
- Which was not as bad as - LEON: A bite on the damn nipple! - (LAUGHING) - BRIDGET: Oh, my God, totally.
'Cause that hurts.
Well, that's it, everybody.
- I'm all done for the night.
- Whoo! Thanks.
It's been a privilege working for you tonight.
And I hope you agree with me that this has been a spectacular "shuck-cess.
" - Whoa! - Oh, nice.
- Thank you.
- I'll I'll walk you out.
- SUSIE: He's adorable.
- BRIDGET: Yeah.
- Bridge, what was the guy - Anyway, um, it was great having you here tonight.
Everybody really enjoyed it.
I hope so.
I hope so.
- Had a great time.
- Yeah.
Yeah, it was great.
Um, I just wanna say one thing.
You know, earlier when I was talking about "Hamilton," what what you didn't hear me say was that I played, uh, 36 holes of golf that day and I was exhausted.
And that's one of the reasons I was so tired, uh, during the performance.
I mean, I I loved what I what I saw.
What I heard was that you fell asleep.
Yes, I did fall asleep, but what you didn't hear is why I fell asleep, why I was so tired.
- I loved the show.
- Sure.
You can paint it or dress it up anyway you want, but sleep is sleep.
- And you fell asleep.
- Yeah.
- All right? - True, I did.
But, uh, I would hope that as you shuck from house to house that, uh, you can afford me some shucker discretion in this matter.
- I understand.
- Oh.
- And I appreciate that.
- Good.
Thank you.
And I would also appreciate, um, two tickets to "Hamilton.
" - Oh.
Really? - Yeah.
Well (SIGHS) I don't have any access to getting you tickets to "Hamilton," okay? - It's most unfortunate.
- And why is why is that? It'd be a shame if Lin-Manuel Miranda ever found out that someone was falling asleep in his show.
- I'll see what I can do.
- Super.
- Yeah.
- Okay.
- (DOOR OPENS, CLOSES) - SUSIE: I like that guy.
- Oh, he was adorable.
- CHERYL: He was adorable.
- What? Who? - This cake is unbelievable.
- BRIDGET: I know.
- Oh, it's the best cheesecake.
Um, all right.
I think, uh I think we're good here.
I think that's enough.
- What? - That's enough.
- What are you talking about? - Time to go.
We're having afterdinner conversation, Larry.
- It's enough.
- You know, this is so typical of you.
I don't like all the lingering after dinner.
You had your dessert.
Get get the hell out.
Come on, get out.
All right, thank you for ruining a lovely evening.
On the contrary, didn't ruin it.
Saved it.
- Uh-huh.
Bridget, call me tomorrow.
- I saved it.
- Mwah.
Cheryl, Ted.
- Mwah.
I'll call you.
All right, okay, come on.
Time to go, people.
- Hey.
- TED: This is your Larry.
- Whose is this? - Oh, I don't know.
Maybe maybe the Shucker left it.
- Yeah? - Yeah.
Man, this is cool.
- SUSIE: Ooh.

- Yeah? - Yeah.
Oh, definitely keep it.
I love it.

Now let's go home, Sheriff.
Come on.
- Yeah.
- All right, people.
- Okay, yep.

JEFF: She's showing me love and affection that I've never felt before.
- 'Cause of the hat.
- All 'cause of the hat.
She listens to what I say.
She takes suggestions.
And all she wants to do is have sex.
- Susie? - Yes.
So I have to keep the hat on during sex.
- That's her thing.
- What? Yeah.
I haven't had this much sex since college.
- Wow.
- It's almost like, you know, she's got a thing for cowboys from her past or something.
She's got a real perversion, doesn't she? Yeah, she loves the Old West.
Where are the women who have a bald perversion? I wonder if there's, like, a place they all hang out.
You just walk in and, you know.
I wonder if it's worth investigating.
- You wonder? - (LAUGHS) I would have already investigated it.
I would have I would have blown up Google with if I were you.

Oh, my God.
Oh, my God.
Interesting, the things I'm learning.
Just like talking to all your friends the other night.
They were so, uh, nice.

- Mmm.
Except maybe at the end when you were talking about those guys.
(LAUGHS) Susie loves those stories.
- I don't know why.
- Yeah.
I guess I kept thinking (SCOFFS) what if what if that was me she was talking about? (LAUGHS) Well, I won't talk about you, Larry.
Don't worry.
Is there anything you've observed thus far or noticed that you might wanna talk about at a dinner party? No.

This is not a college dormitory where you can visit years later and catch up on things.
We don't have alumni weekends, okay? I never should have sold this house to you.
You're destroying it and you're certainly destroying this plant.
Okay, you listen to me, Shapiro, all right? - Get out! - All right.
It's not your house! It's my house! I live here, not you! What a fucking psycho.

I had a couple of questions about act two and a couple of ideas that I think are really gonna help us.

- Do you have a pad and a pen? - Yeah, sure.
(SNAPS FINGERS) I'll have, uh, Lucy get that for you.
Lucy? LEON: Come on, Larry.
Spit that shit out.
What happened in Tahoe? Listen, you can ask as many questions as you want.
You are not going to find out from me what happened in Tahoe.
- (GROANS) - If you really wanted to find out, go ask Ted Danson.
Okay? Let me tell you something.
There's just no discretion anymore.
I had to give that fucking shucker two tickets to "Hamilton.
" Who knows if he's gonna keep his trap shut? - Yeah.
- Yeah, and by the way, you were at the table the other night.
Bridget you heard that, what she was going on about.
- That's some good-ass dick stories, man.
- Horrifying.
She could be talking that way about me.
If you're so goddamn worried about it, make her sign an agreement that she won't fucking talk.
What do you mean, like a nondisclosure agreement? Fucking non-disclosure.
Make her sign that shit.
You know, they have it for housekeepers.
You know, then so they can't talk about it.
They should have that for sex.
They should have it for sex, but they don't.
People don't sign "fuck documents.

She took my dick to places it wasn't meant to go.
So far to the right, so far to the left.
- Back and forth.
- You need a dick chiropractor.
- Dick chiropractor? There's dick chiropractors? - Yeah.
- Of course there are.
- Really? You know how many times I fucked my dick up? - Several times.
- Oh, it's just it's the worst thing I've ever experienced.
I'm taking these.
I'm popping these.
This just cuts the pain.
- Do you have any extra? - Yeah, sure.
- Lin-Manuel landed on my shoulder.
- I remember.
- I'm in terrible pain.
- Yeah, I remember.
- But be careful.
- Thank you.
Those are really strong.
Take them only if you need them.
- Okay.
- Okay? Hey! Great news.
I've been so focused on my dick, I forgot to tell you the good news.
The good news is I talked to his agent.
Lin-Manuel Miranda is in.
- Oh! Wow, yeah.
- Yeah! Yeah! - Yeah! Yeah! - Yeah, all right.
- I'm not surprised.
- I told you, I said it was a sure thing.
He's getting everything he wants.
Why shouldn't he be in? I got Funkhouser invested.
I got Lewis invested.
Of course, I'm still invested.
- Oh, yeah! - LEON: Wow.
- Huh? What do you think? - Oh, yeah! - Wow.
- You like it? - I gotta check it out in the mirror.
- Check it out.
LEON: He looks like a smart sheriff who's also a doctor.
He'll shoot you, then he'll stitch your ass up.
Oh, my God! She took the plant! - Fuck! - Mrs.
Shapiro took the plant! - That's fucked up.
- Oh, my God, that is insane! She didn't put her old-ass foot on the door, but that's still a home invasion.
No, I know what it is, but, I mean, she is you know, she's mental.
- She's out of her mind.
- She didn't have to steal.
A home invasion's a fucking home invasion, you know? That's a home invasion.
She came in your house without permission.
You you better get rid of the do-rag.
Black man showing up at her door with a do-rag? - She'll have a heart attack.
- (CHUCKLES) She'll be fine.
It's in the same family as a scarf, as a ascot, as a pocket square.
- Same fucking family.
- I don't think that's in the scarf, ascot, pocket square family.
The same goddamn family.
Are you kidding me? (STUTTERS) I don't like the optics.
She's gonna be fine.
I promise you, man.
Fuck that.
Knock on that shit aggressively.
The hell you give a fuck about this some bullshit.
Oh! What are you doing here? Two of you? - Hey! My plant.
- Wait wait a minute.
- (LEON SCOFFS) - That's not your plant.
- Yeah.
- That's my plant.
Oh, no, it's not your plant.
You came to my house and you stole my plant.
Come on.
I'm saving this plant.
I'm letting it live and flourish.
- You were letting it die.
- Oh, come on.
Don't give us that green thumb shit.
- (BARKS) - Oh! See, my dog doesn't like you at all.
Bella will bite you on the ankles.
I'll tell you what.
We're gonna take that dog or this plant.
Oh, no, you're not taking my dog.
- You're not touching my dog.
- What? No, you're not taking the dog.
- Why not? - You think I want that dog in my house? - I take the dog - What? - What are you, crazy? - Why not? - Who's gonna walk it? - We'll take turns.
I'm not taking turns.
I'm not walking the dog.
You gonna pick up its shit? - I'll take care of it.
- You'll take care of it? Yeah, that's what 8-year-olds say when they wanna get a dog.
"I'll take care of it.
" And they don't do a goddamn thing.
See, you guys can't even make up your minds what you're gonna do, so why don't you just leave? Wait, who's that? That's Myron, my dearly departed husband.
You know what? Let's take his hat.
No, you're not taking his hat.
No, take the whole goddamn head.
Take the whole fucking head.
- The head? The whole head? - The whole goddamn head.
- You think I want that head in my house? - I don't want the fucking hat.
- The hat is dumb as hell.
- I'm big shot, I'd rather have the hat than the head.
I'm not gonna take the head.
I don't want that monstrosity in my house.
He's a lot better-looking than you.
- Oh, is that so? - Mm-hmm.
- I'm an Uber four, okay? - Well, Myron was an Uber five.
- (BARKING, GROWLING) - (SCOFFS) He's not a five.
- Hey.
- Let's get the fuck out of here.
Okay, you know what? You haven't heard the last of me about this, all right? Don't go into people's homes and steal their plants.
- I'll see you in court.
- The hell you will! - (PHONE RINGING) - Hello? - Hi, Larry.
It's Lin Miranda.
- Oh, hey.
I'm sure you heard it from from Jeff already, but I'm in.
- That's great news.
- I'm clearing my schedule.
It's gonna be you and me writing this thing toe to tip.
You know what, Lin, I think we're in pretty good shape.
We don't need to get into the weeds on this thing.
- The weeds are where the good stuff is.
- Very dangerous in the weeds.
You can get Lyme disease in there if you're not careful.
There's treasure in the weeds and we'll pick for ticks after.
The verses are gonna be satanic.
- Okay.
- Well, the other piece of good news is that my wife, Vanessa, and her friend are gonna be at "Hamilton" the same night as you.
So, she'll be sitting right next to you at the show.
She's going? Yeah, she's using the other half of my house seats, so you'll be right next to her.
And, I mean, she's gonna see you 'cause you're going.
Oh, yeah.
Yeah, well, if she's going, she'll see me because I'm going.
Of course.
The ticket's for you.
Yes, you got the ticket for me and and I will use the ticket you got for me, and as a result, I I will be there.
I'm really excited for you guys to meet.
"Fatwa!" See you in the weeds, buddy.
(PHONE BEEPS) Ah, Shucker.
(KNOCKING ON DOOR) No, I'll be right there.
I'll be right there.
- Oh, hi.
- (MUSIC PLAYING, CHATTER) What's going on here? Oh, it's just a little party.
- How come I wasn't invited? - To the party? Yeah, why wasn't I invited? You just had dinner at my house.
I know.
That was so nice and we had a great time.
Okay, so how come you're not inviting me? Where's the reciprocity? Well, I'm gonna reciprocate, but not this one.
You're gonna reciprocate? This was the opportunity to reciprocate.
Come to the party! I want you to come in and really warm it up.
I don't wanna go I don't wanna go to the party.
- Now you have to go.
- I wouldn't have come even if I was invited.
- Then what are you doing here? - What did you tell Ted about Tahoe? - Tahoe? - Because, um, he told me that you two were going to Tahoe.
- We are going to Tahoe.
- And I said we had been there.
- Right.
- And he said, "Yeah, I know," and he snickered, okay? Leading me to believe that you discussed it with him.
No offense to you, but Ted and I don't need to sit around talking about what you and I did in hotel rooms.
I just don't understand why you're talking Tahoe to Ted.
- I wasn't talking Tahoe to Ted.
- No, you did talk Tahoe to Ted.
Otherwise there'd be no reason for Ted to talk Tahoe.
- What did he say? - He he said you two were going.
So what? That is not talking Tahoe.
That is mentioning a trip that's about to happen.
- Is he here? - No, he's shooting.
More shooting? Another job? When's it gonna end? Who's that? Is that the Shucker? Oh, yeah.
That's the Shucker from your party.
LARRY: Ah, I gotta talk to him.
- Hey, there he is.
- Hey.
I just wanna thank you for those "Hamilton" tickets.
I cannot wait.
Over the moon.
Um, guess what.
I got your hat.
Oh, thank God, because I've been sick without my hat.
- Where is it? - Yeah, it's it's in my car.
So, um, if you can get a little break, - we can go take a walk, and I'll give it to you.
- Sure, that'd be great.
And, uh, I got another little thing I wanna talk to you about.
Ted is shooting a limited series in Vancouver.
I'm borrowing your Shucker for two minutes.
SHUCKER: There it is.
- Oh, baby.
(CHUCKLES) - Oh, fuck.
(GROANS) Come to Papa.
Oh, I have missed you.
(CLICKS TONGUE) Well, got my hat.
Thanks again for those tickets.
Yeah, that's kind of what I wanna talk to you about.
Um, Lin called me up, told me his wife was gonna be sitting next to me.
He thinks the tickets are for me, and so I have to go now.
So, I need sorry to say, I need the tickets back.
Well, what do you mean? That's that's like a that's like a bad horse trade.
- What are you talking about? - How are you gonna show up and sit sit there? Because if she sees you there, I am gonna be in a lot of trouble.
- All right.
- Come on.
- All right, I'll get you your tickets.
- Yeah? For $2,500.
Take it or leave it.
You're quite a prick, aren't you? It's the Shucker's way.
I don't have that kind of cash on me.
It's okay, we take credit cards.
Thank you.
MAN ON TV: Jarvis isn't living up to his potential.
What's on? "Chicago Teachers.
" - No! - Yeah! - (SIGHS) - Oh, my God.
- Oh, yeah.
- It's worse than the other thing we were watching.
They don't try to curse that much on that one, though, so it's okay.
- Oh, really? - Yeah.
- Oh, that's good.
- What do you wanna do? - What do I wanna do? - Mm-hmm.
- You mean right now? - Mm-hmm.
I mean, if we could do anything right now, what would it be? - (SMACKS LIPS) - Sexually.
- Well - Mm-hmm? - Uh - What? - You know.
- Tell me.
I just like to get an erection, put it in a vagina.
- That's a - That's it? That's about it, yeah.
That's your biggest fantasy? I would just get on the top and thrust until orgasm.
- Hmm.
- I'm sexually a very simple man.
- But there is something that can change that.
- Oh.
- I got something.
I got something - There we go.
- Ooh! Oh! - that's pretty interesting.
- There you go.
- (CHUCKLING) This is a relationship nondisclosure agreement? - Yeah.
- Is this a joke? No, no.
You this is a nondisclosure agreement that you want me to sign? Yeah, we both we both have to sign it.
This is terrible! This is what's wrong with you? It's it's just a discretion thing.
You know, it's a "Partners prohibited from disclosing the quality of the sexual experience or the degree of satisfaction attained"? - It's fairly boilerplate.
- There is no boilerplate, Larry.
This has never existed before.
- This is insane.
- I know, it's brilliant.
- It's not brilliant.
- It locks in discretion, it's "Partners shall not divulge any details including the use of toys, lotions, ointments " What are you talking about? - Fantastic idea.
- Larry, you are out of your mind.
- No, uh - This is horrible.
It'll be great for our sex life.
- We can we can go wild.
- No, it won't.
This is a great idea.
I I wish I thought of it years ago! I wish my ex-wife had signed one, I can tell you that! 'Cause I know she's talking, she's blabbing.
She's telling Ted Danson everything.
What happened in Tahoe she's told him what happened in Tahoe! You're presenting me with a legal document.
It's the least sexy thing anyone has ever done, ever! - It's like a prenup! - Bye.
You're not thinking this through! This is a good good idea! Bridget! Bridget! Bridget, if we had this, it'll take the boredom away! Sign this and you'll have the wildest sex you ever imagined! - No.
- Just sign it! - No.
- Orgasms galore! That's what I'm promising you, baby! Orgasms galore! You won't regret it! I'm not signing your dumb piece of paper, Larry.
Should've known this was not gonna work out.
Eddie never liked you! Oh, the the kid you pretended has Asperger's? It is not pretend.
He has Asperger's.
What's your excuse? (SIGHS) (TAPPING) You're missing out on Tahoe Larry! (MUSIC PLAYING) ANNOUNCER: You are about to enter the courtroom of Judge Judith Sheindlin.
This is "Judge Judy.
" Larry David is suing Rose Shapiro for trespassing at his home and stealing his ficus plant.
Larry David says that Mrs.
Shapiro has made him feel unsafe in his own home.
The defendant is countersuing Mr.
David for sole custody of the plant on grounds of plant abuse.
PETRI: All rise.
Oh, my God.
Your Honor, it's case number 249 on the calendar in the matter of David vs.
- Thank you.
- You're welcome, Judge.
Parties have been sworn in.
You may be seated.
Oh, my fucking God! - JUDY: When was that? - Five years ago.
Subsequently, several weeks ago, you, without invitation, - came into the house.
- Oh (CHUCKLES) That's him! That's the guy.
That's the guy I was telling you about.
This is the guy you had all those sex stories about? Yes, that's Larry Long Balls.
Finally, I shoo her away.
She comes back another time, uninvited, uses her key, steals the plant.
Miss Shapiro, I see that you have some evidence here.
This is the way the plant looked - when I found it in his house.
- (COURTROOM GASPS) - I wanna object.
- LARRY: Yeah.
- Total objection to that plant.
- JUDY: Just a second.
Who are you? This is Leon Black.
He's he's my witness.
Does he have any relevant information that would help that would help your case? I do.
This plant is like a person.
Certain parts of the year, that plant turns darker, like myself.
When I go to Florida, I turn a little darker, a shade darker.
Most of the time I carry myself in a mocha tone, but there are some some parts of the year when I'm more mahogany.
Let's get finished with the various tones of Mr.
Black and let's move on to something else.
Your Honor, is it possible I could pace while you're asking me the questions? Would you put him in his seat? - Mrs.
- ROSE: Yes? You have another exhibit underneath that to show me what the plant looks like now? - Yes, I do.
- LARRY: Anybody want a cough drop? You want one, Judge? Judge Sheindlin? You want a cough drop? It's so hard to be fair.
Byrd, give her a cough drop.
So, this is the guy you're working with? - JUDY: Go shh! Uh! - Yeah.
JUDY: You went back to Mr.
David's home - (WATER POURING) - and you stole the plant.
I would say rather than stole, rescued.
Judge, yoo-hoo! Is this filtered? I don't know.
What is he asking me? - PETRI: If it's filtered, Judge.
- It's - LARRY: Is it filtered? - Yes, it's filtered.
I'm sorry.
That is not filtered water.
Don't drink it.
Don't drink it.
Put it down.
What are you putting unfiltered water tap water on the table for? That's it.
That's it.
I'm done.
David, while I understand that Mrs.
Shapiro did the wrong thing, I can only say to you, sir, that anyone who would neglect a plant in that fashion doesn't deserve to have it.
- Your case is dismissed.
- (GAVEL POUNDS) We're done.
There you go.
- This is what? - Good-bye.
PETRI: Parties are excused.
You may step out.
This is crazy! I'm I'm shocked, shocked! Are we no better than the the beasts in the field? And by beasts, I'm not talking about the the chicken.
I'm talking about the oxen and the the donkey - Oh, un-fucking-believable.
- with its slack-jawed stare and - What's going on? - SUSIE: Oh, nothing.
- (TV TURNS OFF) - Come on into bed, cowboy.
(CHATTER) (HORN HONKING) Forget it, forget it.
- Hi.
- Hey.
- Hello.
- Vanessa.
- Hi, Vanessa.
- So nice to meet you.
- Nice to meet you.
I'm Larry David.
- Hi, Larry, yeah.
I'm bald, I wear glasses, and and this is my ticket.
- (CHUCKLES) - Here to see the show.
I'm very excited.
I'm right here.
I'm sitting right next to you.
- How about that? - Yeah.
This is my friend, Joanna, from college.
- Hi.
- Hello, hi.
- Larry.
- Nice to meet you.
I'm not a shucker.
- (JOANNA CHUCKLES) - I enjoy clams.
I do.
I like oysters, but I don't shuck.
I know a shucker, but that doesn't mean that the shucker's gonna be here.
I'm here, not the shucker.
Do you like clams and oysters? - They're okay.
- Yeah, okay.
Well, but if you eat them, somebody's gotta shuck them.
Lin is so excited about "Fatwa!" - Oh, "Fatwa!" Come on! - Yeah.
This is gonna be a big thing, though.
He's so excited.
He can't wait to just get in there and start rewriting.
He shouldn't be getting into there, he should be getting into you, and I don't mean that in a sexual way.
I mean it in terms of time.
Don't don't get into the weeds of the show.
Get into your weeds, again not sexual, but delve into you, you know.
And again, delve into you nonsexual delving is what I'm saying.
A nonsexual delve.
Ay, gosh.
Killing me.
How'd you hurt your shoulder? Wrestling with Lin in his agent's office.
- He threw me to the ground.
- Seriously? Yeah, yeah.
(CHUCKLES) I've got pain pills.
My friend gave me pain pills.
- Fantastic! - You want some water? - Thank you.
- Here you go.
Oh, you can keep it.
- (MUSIC PLAYING) - (APPLAUSE, CHEERING) How does a bastard, orphan Son of a whore and a Scotsman - Dropped in the middle of a forgotten - (YAWNS) Spot in the Caribbean by providence Impoverished, in squalor Grow up to be a hero and a scholar? - So, what happens if we win? - I go back to France I'll bring freedom to my people if I'm given a chance - We'll be with you when you do - Go lead your men - I'll see you on the other side - (SNORING) - Till we meet again - I am not throwing away my shot - I am not throwing away my shot - Hey! Hey, yo, I'm just like my country, I'm young, scrappy, and hungry And I'm not throwing away my shot I am not throwing away my shot Till the world turns upside down Till the world turns upside down I imagine death so much, it feels more like a memory This is where it gets me, on my feet, the enemy ahead of me If this is the end of me, at least I have a friend with me Weapon in my hand, a command and my men with me (SNORING) (THEME MUSIC PLAYING)
