Sam Duvet at the bat.
They've just integrated the league.
He's coming to us from the Roman candle baseball negro leagues.
It's a proud day for me.
He was not very good there, but he is fantastic with the whites.
I feel like Superman on Earth.
I got powers here, baby.
Lot of folks in the stands not happy with the decision.

Lois Warfield was a dedicated friend, a loving wife, and a proud union autoworker.
And while we mourn her loss, let's look at the bright side.
God's car's gonna be running a little smoother tonight.
[LAUGHTER] And trust me, you know the big man won't be driving an import.
Amen.
[LAUGHTER] It's not funny.
They're just laughing 'cause he's a pastor.
I know, he's capitalizing on these people's sorrow.
It's bull[BLEEP].
Some of Lois' friends and family have asked to say a few words.
Looking in the crowd at the faces of all my coworkers, I'm gonna miss all the shit that Lois said about you every single day.
[LAUGHTER] I mean, Fred, with Lois gone, who I'm gonna laugh with about your double chins? Double chins? That's muscle, playa.
A lot of people thought Lois was mean, but I knew with every jab, every insult, it was just her way of saying "I love you.
" I don't know what I'm gonna do without Lois.
Who's gonna make my sandwich? Who's gonna make my bed? Mm? That's it? - Okay, then.
- That's all he's gonna say.
And we gotta hang out with this guy tomorrow.

Thank you.
Thank you, thank you.
I'm sorry again for your loss.
- Thank you.
- All right.
Yeah, I just want to say it was a beautiful service, but you and I both know you wouldn't have gotten those laughs if you weren't a pastor.
[SCOFFS] I'm sorry? Oh, it's no big deal.
I don't care.
I'm just saying you're not actually funny, so don't feel proud about today.
People grieve in their own ways, son.

Oh, thank you.
I hope you don't think you deserved any of those laughs - No, I just told him.

[DOORBELL RINGS] - Hey, I'm here.
- Come on in, I'll show you around the house.
Okay.
Sure.
This used to be our room.
Pictures.
Lamp.
That used to be our bed.
Sorry it's a mess, but Lois used to make the bed.
Now, she's gone.
Hey, I can make the bed for you, Elwood.
You'd do that for me? Yeah, I'd be happy to.
Yes.
Wow, look at you.
You're a pro at that.
Oh, I don't know about that.
Thank you.
This is the kitchen.
Lois used to make sandwiches for me in here when she was alive.
Now she's sandwiches for worms.
I sure am hungry.
I can make you a sandwich, Elwood.
Well, you were so good at making that bed.
[LAUGHTER] Shut up.
You're a good man, Tim.
Yeah, well, everybody loved Lois, so it's no problem at all.
What's the ETA on that sandwich? - It's coming.
- Like five? - Ten? - Probably ten.
Five would be better.
Okay, yeah.
I'll see what I can do.
Everybody loved Lois very much.
You came into my life Oh, baby, how about "Star Century Prime"? You know? I heard it just came out today, it looks good as mud.
No, let's just go see "Fat Bieber.
" Yeah, it does look hilarious.
- Yeah.
- Hell yeah.
But you know, I heard "Star Century Prime" is 100% on Rotten Tomatoes.
I mean that's consensus.
Well, you know, Jasmin saw "Fat Bieber" yesterday, - and she said it was real funny.
- Jasmin said that, huh? Yeah, well, I guess she knows more than Leonard Maltin.
- Leonard Maltin! - [LAUGHTER] No, you know what? Let's go to "Fat Bieber" then.
Shoot, we might mess around and see two movies.
- You play too much.
- No.
Whoa, baby, whoa, baby I'm coming home - Baby, whoa, baby - Yo, Chrissy! Bring it in, bring it in.
Chrissy, this is Margaret, your new linemate.
Margaret, this is Chrissy.
She gonna be showing you the ropes, all right? All right.
- Hey, Margaret.
- Chrissy, nice to meet you.
You check out Fred and his double chins? His neck lookin' like a sideways butt.
He was very nice to me.
Yeah, sure, sorry.
My old linemate and I used to make fun of people.
Just our way of showing love.
Well, I was bullied as a kid, so that sort of thing isn't fun for me.
- Oh, sorry.
- Kids can be so mean.
Kids made fun of me because my head was always in a book.
My hairline started at my eyebrows.
[SUPPRESSED LAUGHTER] That must've been very hard for you.
It was.
So you were like Moe from "The Three Stooges?" Shit! Okay.
Back door's locked and I checked the crawlspace.
Nobody in there.
Well, Elwood, I've had a great entire Sunday with you.
Do you mind staying until I fall asleep? Lois used to.
Yeah, but she used to live here.
And she died here.
[SIGHS] I don't know how I'm ever gonna get to sleep without the smell of smoke in here.
- I'm not smoking, Elwood.
- I don't smoke.
Nighty night.
Oh, no! Yo, I grew up and got fat, yo! [LAUGHTER] I'm gonna have to go back in Usher's time machine and warn myself not to smoke weed! Mm-hmm! Don't you do it, Justin! - You smoke that kush! - [LAUGHTER] Babe, I'm trying to listen, okay? If we're gonna talk, we're gonna talk, but if we're gonna watch the movie, let's just watch the movie.
Okay, here I go! Come on, Sammich.
Man, that [BLEEP] fat! [LAUGHTER] Let's maybe leave the jokes to the professionals.
Man, turn your ass around! [DRAMATIC CINEMATIC MUSIC] I will have you ejected, just so you know.
[LAUGHTER] He wild! - Yeah.
- Wild! Wild! Look at how fat he is.
[LAUGHTER] - That big ol' fat negro.
- [LAUGHTER] Oh! Oh, my God! Oh! This is amazing! What? Uh, we smashing, you know what I mean? - Oh, yeah, yeah.
- Yeah.
[BOTH MOANING] Oh, yeah! Talk more to me, daddy! Nah, dawg.
Boom, boom, boom, boom! I'm putting in work! - I'm all up in them guts.
- Oh, no! - Whoa! Jesus! - I'm sorry.
Sam, if Dad heard you talking like that, he would beat your ass.
[SCOFFS] I would knock Dad out.
I mean, don't tell Dad.
Sam, I don't know why you're acting like somebody you're not, just to impress some hoochie mama.
Chrissy! "Hoochie mama"? Shame on you for judging people, when you yourself are the biggest piece of shit I've ever seen.
Sam, her linemate just died.
Ah, a week ago.
Gloves are off.
She's got a new linemate.
Who cares? But I can't say anything to Margaret or she'll cry.
What do you mean? She was bullied as a kid, so I can't say shit about her or anybody else.
The other day, Fred farted so hard his back went out.
[LAUGHTER] She didn't even giggle! She said, "It's not funny! He's actually hurt!" [LAUGHTER] I'm sorry, babe.
That sucks.
He's getting workman's comp.
[LAUGHTER] - See? It's funny! - Yes! Lunchtime.
Mm-mm-mm! Look at that hamper.
You know, Lois used to do the laundry.
Yeah, yeah, she did everything around here.
And you know what? I am not Lois! Elwood, it's time for you to start making your own damn bed! It's time for you to start making your own damn sandwiches.
It's not hard! Just put two pieces of bread around slices of meat! - Is this it? - No, that's a ball! Come on, I feel like you're getting it wrong on purpose.
No, I'm not! I can't do it.
Well, then you're gonna have to figure this shit out, man.
One day, I'll die and Chrissy will have to figure out how to go on without me! - Maybe she could remarry.
- No! If your spouse dies and you remarry, you go to Hell, man! Sorry.
Come here.
Good-bye, Elwood.
You can do this.
[FUNKY, UPBEAT MUSIC] Margaret, I'm sorry we got off on the wrong foot.
But I can't work in silence every day.
I have to talk, or I'll go crazy.
You want to make fun of people.
I don't like bullies.
I know.
It's because my hairline used to start at my eyebrows.
Oh, I know, and it sucks that happened to you.
They used to say the meanest things to me.
They used to call me "Bride of Chewbacca.
" Maybe you should tell me what else they would call you.
You know, to get it off of your chest.
They used to call me the Forehead-less Horseman.
Assholes! 'Sup, ladies? What do you think those jerks would've said about Little Joey? Oh, man, they'd probably say something like, "Little Joey's so short, he needs a ladder to go down on Tinkerbell.
" You know, like he'd have to climb up that ladder to [BLEEP] out her vagina or something like that.
That is so mean.
What do you think they'd say about Fred? They'd say, "Fred's neck is so weak, he has to ask his tits for lunch money.
" [INDISTINCT CHATTER] What up, y'all? This my man, Sam.
Ha.
'Sup, 'sup, 'sup? Ooh, y'all y'all drinkin', huh? Uh, let me get a Hpno.
[LAUGHTER] You know what I'm saying? Yo, Sam, your pants tight as hell, my [BLEEP] Yeah, that's funny you mentioned that, 'cause this is the only pants I had that was, uh clean.
I went I bought some I thought I was getting these in a XXL, and I got home, these are medium.
I was like, I gotta go to the store and talk to these people face to face.
So I went to the store, I was like, "Hey!" Hey, my brah, uh You gave me the wrong size pants.
" And it was like, "Nothing I can do for you, man.
" I was like, "Really, bro?" [LAUGHS] And then, so I was like, "Let me talk to your manager.
" And then the manager came out, and it's like, "Nothing I can do for you.
We have no refund policy.
" So, I was like, "You about to come up with a refund for me, .
" You ever notice how some folks say the word [BLEEP], it just doesn't sound right? - Leave him alone, Ray.
- Okay? 'Cause he may talk white, but he's still cute.
Actually, I'm sexy, but I don't even really talk white, baby.
- I don't even know - Sam.
Listen to your voicemail.
Yello, you've reached Sam Duvet.
You know what to do, and that is leave a message.
[LAUGHTER] "Yello, you've reached Frasier.
Leave a message.
" [LAUGHTER] All right! You got me! I talk "proper"! I can't even see with these on.
So, okay.
So what? So because I talk proper that means I talk white? And then thus, to speak improperly means you speak black? Are we okay with this? Are we okay with this as a people? Hmm? [LAUGHTER] You know what's cool? [LAUGHTER] Being your ding-dong self.
How 'bout that? Unless you are being yourselves, which I you probably are, I don't know! I don't care! I guess my point is Is just have a good time! Cheers! Oh, heavens, is there pineapple in this Hpnotiq? I'm allergic to pineapple! - [LAUGHTER] - It's not funny! It's a legitimate allergy! I need an antihistamine or an EpiPen! Once I got her talking, Margaret never stopped.
Today was actually a pretty fun day.
Chrissy, you just tricked her into being mean.
You're a bad person.
Go eat pineapples, you fat head.
Shut up.
Hey, this is Sam.
Leave a message.
Why do we still have to do this? I thought Angel dumped you.
You've reached Sam Duvet.
Leave your thing at the bizzay! - Just use your regular voice.
- I'm trying! Hey, you've reached Slammin' Sammy Duvet! I'm not here right now, because I'm out rocking the jocks! - There it is.
- There you go.
Thank you.
- That's all I ask.
- That's it.
- That one felt right.
- Use your regular voice.
- That was it.
- That's normal me.
.
["WAIT FOR A MOMENT" BY VULFPECK] [SUNNY ORGAN MELODY] Yeah, oh yeah [STOVETOP IGNITER CLICKING] No, I'm on my own now.
I have to do this for myself.
Gone home, went to bed While the other kids they're still outside [EXPLOSIONS] [SOMBER ORGAN MUSIC] Elwood Warfield was a dedicated friend, a loving husband, and though unemployed, he made life his job, which I guess he's now been fired from.
[LAUGHTER] - It's funny.
- That's a good joke.
- That was actually funny.
- That was pretty funny.
Damn it.
[WHISPERED] Yep, it was good.
