oh, yeah. what can i do for you? well, with fred gone, i'd like to bring my bible group over here for a meeting. w--well, why do you want to bring them over here? i have to. our usual meetin' place has been condemned. oh, gee whiz. i'm sorry to hear that. yes, we all were, especially sister hannah. she was the one who fell through the floor. fell through the floor? mmm, mmm, mmm. i sure hope she wasn't hurt too bad. no. she busted her hip. lucky for her, she got a lot of hip. but the poor thing is walkin' crooked like this. grady: mmm, mmm, mmm. so that's why this place would be just fine, since that heathenous fred isn't here. oh. well, you see, um... i'm afraid you can't have your bible meetings here.
and he said if you were to come over here askin' about having a bible meeting, that i was to say no. so i'm sayin' no. look, sucker... the lord sent this heavenly opportunity to put some holiness into this house. that's why he sent fred to st. louis. and the lord is tellin' me to get the show on the road. well, i don't know what the lord said, but fred said no bible meetings. and since i'm in charge, i'm saying no bible meetings. you know what you doin'? you doin' the devil's work and interfering with god's mission! you're just like that heathen fred. you're an unholy sinner and a heathenous, foul philistine.
ok, i'll get some sticks and stones and break your bones. and the name that'll hurt you will be esther. now, i don't like to strike a woman, but if i'm forced to defend myself, i will. and let the chips fall where they may. may cross your lips, chump. hey, wait a minute! aunt esther, grady, stop it! stop it. now, what's going on in here? this old fool won't let me have my bible meeting here. that's what happen when you replace a fool with a fool. sticks and stones can-- oh, shut up, you old fool, before i put my foot in your-- aunt esther!

before somebody gets hurt. i just want my friend to know that the man he left behind is in complete control. yeah, well, if you sit down too hard with that bullet in your pocket, the man he left won't have a behind. and i just want you to know that i'm in charge here, which means... both: no bible meetings and no or-gees. yeah. [all talking at once] quiet! well, what's the matter? somebody sick? yeah, partner. you can't tell no chick like this to be quiet and hold it down. i mean, it's against their nature! i mean, these are 2 live wires with no insulation. but look, now i already told you there's an old dude staying here that's a friend of my old man's. and he thinks he's napoleon. now, see, he's upstairs asleep now. everything will be everything as long as we be quiet.
what--what's the matter? that old fool done locked the door, and i ain't got no key. well, that ain't no big thing. what we gonna do? there's a window by the landing that's always open, see? and i crawl through there and let us in. hey, you want me to do it, partner? you know i'm good at that. no, rollo. you stay here and look after the women. well, can you handle it with that one arm? hey, bro, i got it. carry on, dude. that dude is more weird than you. yeah, he sure is a weird one.
