a sensible solution to this. there certainly is, and i'm staying right here until this mess is cleared up. and i think that that is fair. oh, no. nope, nope, nope. what do you mean nope, nope, nope? i mean she can't stay here because there isn't any room. that's what they told the baby jesus, but they found him a place. ok. i'll build you a little manger out in the backyard. why, you dirty-- aunt esther! now never mind. now come here, aunt esther. now look. now you can go upstairs, and you can stay in my room. the linen has already been changed. now wait a minute, lamont. i don't think your father would approve of this. go on up there and make yourself comfortable, hear? thank you, baby. now just listen. don't you go in my room by mistake
i might have a stroke and die. grady wilson, i wouldn't go in your room to save my mama's life. and another thing, when you talk to that worm woodrow, you tell him his behind is grass, and i am the lawn mower. he just don't know me. i'll bust his skull. i'll run into him like a hobo run into a freight train. see what you did? just see what you did! look what you've done now? what i've done? i haven't done nothing. thanks to you, now we got sister ike staying with us. you mean thanks to you. and it's all your fault, grady. you should've minded your own business. yeah, but woodrow made it my business when he came over here this morning.

listen, just wash your hands and get on over here. [hangs up phone] now what did you do that for? if woodrow comes over here expecting aunt esther to be meek, she's liable to knock him down. one down and one to go. [knocking] you're gonna be sorry you did this, grady wilson. mark my words. you're gonna be sorry you did this. aunt minnie, aunt flossie. lamont, baby. how are you? i'm doing fine, but what's the matter? what y'all doing here? for our poor, sweet sister. we just left her house, and woody the worm said he put her out, and we figured she'd be over here. so we came over here as fast as we could. all right. just--just-- just make yourself at home here. just stay here. aunt esther! esther: what is it, baby? aunt minnie and aunt flossie's here to see you. [toilet flushes]
[sobbing] don't be upset. that little, old, weaselly man. don't worry about that. don't worry. we'll take care of woodrow. that's right. he ain't gonna get away with it. it wasn't all woodrow's fault. grady put him up to this. grady did? that's right. he put all this wickedness in his head by getting him drunk. there ain't enough liquor in this house to get woodrow drunk. it's all your fault. that's right. lamont: wait a minute. don't-- wait a minute. now just wait a minute! now wait a minute, please, ladies. now just sit down. yeah, sit down! ladies: we ain't sitting down! and you stay out of this, grady wilson. this whole thing is your fault. my fault? they're the ones that are resorting to violence. and as the late j. edgar hoover said, "violence must be met by violence." [all yelling at once] wait a minute! [knocking] now nobody move!
. [knocking] the craziest house i've ever seen. i should go to st. louis. uncle woodrow. aunt minnie and aunt flossie: woodrow. esther: woodrow. did i hear somebody calling woodrow? yeah. that was your maker calling you to his bosom. and your tombstone is ready. wait a minute! wait a minute! wait a minute, aunt esther. now there'll be no killing in this house. that's right. take him outside. don't kill him in here. i don't want no blood on these rugs. say, grady, i thought you said she would be eating out of the palm of my hands. here i washed my hands for nothing. is that what you told him, sucka? i--i was only trying to help him out. come on, woodrow. this is where the cream puff meets the battle-axe. who you calling a battle-axe, chump?
well, let me see. there's 1...2... 3. take your choice. woodrow, are you gonna stand here and let this hairy ape call me a battle-axe? now wait just a minute, hairy ape. this battle-axe happens to be my wife. talk to him, woodrow. now you can't talk to my wife like that. now, um, i'm sorry about all this, esther, baby. i'm sorry, too, woodrow lamby-pie. grady was the old serpent that tried to cast me out of my garden of eden. yeah. grady was the old serpent that tried to cast you out of your garden of eden. yeah. it's all your fault, you old serpent. now--now that's the thanks i get for trying to help you out. woodrow, you ain't nothing but a cream puff and ought to have the cream squeezed out of your puff. don't you touch a hair on his body.
oh, i see. so now, it's 2 against one, huh? 3. 4. make that 5. well, now i'd be the last man to call for help. and since i'm the last man, help! come on, baby. let's get out of this den of inequity. woodrow: yeah. let's get out of this den of inequity. [all talking at once] wok! w-w-w-wok! wok! get on outta here! huh. there they go. battle-axe, cream puff, and the 2 brides of frankenstein. well, i hope you're happy now, grady. i hope you're satisfied. you almost busted up our aunt esther and uncle woody. you embarrassed my family. you caused all the trouble in the first place. wait a minute. wait a minute now. let's just hold it.
oh, big deal. now who was that a victory for, the men or women's lib? well, now i'd say it was a stand-off. they ought to both burn their drawers in a pubic place. that's public place! public place! ? ? my favorite part about being a dad is just to see their faces in the morning when i wake them up. the first thing you think about is your wife and your kids and your family. you think about what life would be like for them, without you. so i had surgery locally, and it came back after my follow up that i needed a second surgery. and that's when i said i need a second opinion. from the moment i walked through the doors, they greet you, they're smiling and i love the fact that they included me in the whole process and asked me what i wanted to do.
rod came in with ah, pretty advanced cancer and i remember thinking, he's just like me, he's like my twin. we're almost the same age, the same height- he's much more athletic- but almost the same life circumstances as far as having kids and raising a family, he just happens to have cancer. for rod, we combined chemotherapy, radiation and surgery in order to shrink the tumor, so that the surgeon could take it out. i feel like this was the right way for me, and the right treatment for me, and the right process for me to go through. the diagnosis of cancer is one of those things that you want an answer now. we can do now here, and that is something that they appreciate because we match the sense of urgency that they have. if you or a loved one have been diagnosed with cancer, start your treatment with a team of experts who only treat cancer, every stage, every day. at cancer treatment centers of america,
call or visit cancercenter.com for more information. it's a new normal for me right now, makes you appreciate the little things in life. every moment counts. the evolution of cancer care is here. cancer treatment centers of america. appointments available now. well, i'll see you later, grady. i'm going out for the evening. i got a little date lined up, you know. did you hear what i said?
object to that airline advertisement? you know, the one that says, "i'm margie. fly me"? are you back on that again? well, i don't see what's wrong with flying margie. it ain't up to the women libbers, it's up to margie. and if she says, "fly me," then we should all fly her. grady, look, it's like i told you. women don't want to be known as sex symbols. and it says here that the man that came up with the idea is probably a male chinese pig. that's male chauvinist pig. oh. well, anyway, they are sex symbols and cooking symbols and kitchen symbols and sewing symbols, and they ought to get used to it.
hey, wait a minute. where you going? i fixed supper for you. hey, i'm sorry, man. i told you i got a date. well, what kind of business is that when i've been in this kitchen all day cooking and slaving over a hot stove? good night, grady. you can't do that to me. don't you see the sweat rolling down my face? you male chinese pig!
