6:08 pm

6:09 pm
you was 3 years old. the poker playing was bad enough, but then he started gambling on the horses and he couldn't stop! sometimes he'd lose his whole paycheck. gee, that doesn't sound like daddy. it wasn't him. it was the sickness. ma, how did you get him to stop? i packed a suitcase and dressed gloria up and told him i was leaving. happy days, everybody. well, look who's here. nick the greek. and look who's over there. stupid the pole. come on, daddy. don't start name-calling. don't talk to me. talk to your husband over here. you hear the wisecrack he laid on me? come on, arch, it was just a joke. ma was telling us about your gambling days, that's all. about what? what's wrong? we're all family here. don't remind me! telling them about my gambling days! i told you never to talk about that time!
6:10 pm
i was only out of the room one minute. you finished telling them that whole long story? whenever you tell me even a little story, it takes you forever. that's because you interrupt me. you keep saying, "get to the point, edith. get to the point." and that mixes me up and i lose my place. if i didn't interrupt you, you wouldn't know when you was finished. where are you going? edith, i'm going upstairs to the reading room. set the table. sure, ma. ma, were you really gonna leave daddy? why, yes, i really was. well, what would you have done then? get a divorce? no, gloria. never. i married your father for better or for worse. i'm just lucky the worse got a little better. [phone rings] i'll get it.
6:11 pm
no. he's busy right now. [toilet flushes] yeah. i'll give him a message. you put his bet down for him? another bet? yeah. i'll tell him. ten dollars on glow worm in the fifth. yeah. goodbye. edith. let me tell you something about beer. you can never buy beer. you can only rent it. oh, look at you, edith. you ain't got no sense of humor about certain things. did i hear the phone go off? yeah. well, who was it for? it was for you! for me? well, who was it, huh?
6:12 pm
hi, everybody. hi, gloria. hi, michael, honey. [both mouthing silently] hey, ma. mmm! something sure smells good. yeah. boy, am i starved. i'll do it tomorrow. ah, yeah, ma. that's a good idea. ah, tomorrow. we'll do it tomorrow. it's the best time to do it. michael. oh, boy. how long's she been like this? ever since i got home from school. it's 6:30. where's daddy? i know. it's strange. half-past feeding time and papa bear's not sitting at the table. well, maybe he got caught in the rush hour, same as i did. michael, did you know daddy slept on the couch last night? you're kidding me! was that his idea or hers? what's the difference? i'd just like to know. did he abdicate or was he dethroned? come on, michael. i never thought i'd see the day when ma would hit daddy.
6:13 pm
[laughs] it's the first time i ever saw your father with his mouth open and nothing coming out. well, we can't let her just sit there like that. let's go talk to her. ma. ma, is there anything we can do to help? oh, no. i don't think so, gloria. i've got to figure this out for myself. well, maybe it's not as bad as you think. i hope not. you don't know how bad the sickness can get. why, when we was living on union street, we had a used car. and one day, i was looking out the window and i saw a man driving off in it. i yelled at archie, "archie, there's a man stealing our car." he says, "he ain't stealing it, edith. i lost it to him last night." that's terrible. yeah. it was.
6:14 pm
and i shouldn't have hit him this time. ma, you couldn't help yourself. i couldn't help archie either. remember when you had the chicken pox, gloria? i didn't hit you. what's that got to do with anything? ooh, everything. gambling is a sickness, too. oh, i don't know what i'm gonna say to him when he comes home tonight. if he comes home tonight. oh, ma. of course he'll come home. i don't know, gloria. your father is a very proud man. he comes from a family where the women didn't hit their husbands. at least not when they was looking at them. ma, archie's had a whole day to think about this. by now, he probably realizes it's his fault. he's gonna walk in here, he's not gonna say anything about it. and i don't believe a word i just said. michael.
6:15 pm
i never hit anybody in my whole life. not even when i was a little girl. not even elsie lawler. elsie lawler? i haven't heard you talk about her. who's she? she sat behind me in fourth grade. ooh, she was so mean to me. what did she do? well, once in the playground, i was running after a ball, and she stuck her foot out and tripped me and i fell on my face and chipped a tooth. ma, i would've hit her! everybody wanted me to. jerry lawler offered to hold her so i could hit her better. her own brother. but i-- i couldn't do it. i gave it to her, though. i said, "all right for you, elsie lawler!" she knew i was mad at her.
6:16 pm
give us another beer there, will you, kelsey? you gonna drink your dinner tonight, arch? are you in the business of asking stupid questions or selling beer? i was just asking-- asking me a stupid question. can't you find nobody else to talk to? arch, there ain't nobody else in here. that solves your problem, then. shut up. hey, kelse! give me one of them tall, cold ones, huh? hiya, arch. don't be giving me that "hiya, arch" stuff, you crumb, you. hey, look, pal. i'm sorry that your horse lost. but i wasn't riding him, you know. that ain't the point. why did you have to call me up at my house? because i figured that's where your phone was. look at me, barney. i ain't laughing at that. ah! listen! edith was not supposed to know i was betting on a horse. oh! keeping secrets from the little wifey, huh? that ain't nice, arch. what did edith say when she found out?
6:17 pm
i get it. you're in the doghouse and you're afraid to go home, huh? i ain't afraid to go home. hey, arch. you want to get edith back in line, you got to do what i did. awwww-- what? when mabel gave me a bad time, i didn't stay out, i went home. but i ignored her, made believe she wasn't even there. ah, it wouldn't work with edith. i do that even when i ain't mad at her. arch, you don't understand. i gave her the cold shoulder. i didn't even go near her. not downstairs, nor upstairs, if you get my drift. oh, you done that, huh? for two whole weeks. drove her right up the wall. hee-hee-hee! ah, no, that'd be punishing edith too hard. you see, arch, there's your trouble right there. you're too soft-hearted. i know, barney. what am i gonna do? that's the way i am.
6:18 pm
then you'd better start hollering. when a woman gets out of line, she wants to be straightened out. they're just like kids. i know all that. yeah, i know you know all that. but what are you doing about it? hmm? huh? i'll show you what i'm gonna do about it. i'll see the two of youse later. go get her, arch! [laughs] what's with you, barney? did you see the look on his face? it's gonna be murder at his house. you've got him all steamed up. what are friends for? gloria! gloria! yeah, michael, what is it? i just saw your father turning the corner. he'll be here any minute. oh, ma. did you hear that? yeah. i ain't looking forward to this. now, don't you let him walk all over you. gloria, let me handle this my way. and, please, this is private between archie and me.
6:19 pm
i'm glad you're alone, edith, because there's some things-- you get away from me. huh? i said, you get away from me, unless you got something to say to me. i got something to say to you. you hit me! and you hurt me! and i demand an apology! it's you that's gotta apologize to me. i gotta? that's like asking pearl harbor to apologize to the japs! oh, archie. i don't want to argue. i've been worrying about you all day. yeah, well, you should've been! because you hit me and you hurt me. did i ever hit you for any reason? i never gave you any reason.
6:20 pm
you know, a lot of wives get belted by their husbands, whether they deserve it or not. archie, i could forgive you for hitting me, but i don't think i could ever forgive you for making me hit you. what does that mean? it means you lied to me. listen, edith, listen. you know, i still ain't got no feeling over here. i was standing right here, looking at you, smiling at you, and you slugged the smile right off of me. now, i demand an apology. archie, can i read you something? don't read me nothing, edith. i want an apology. this is an apology. well, i didn't ask you to write it out. but as long as you done that, that's okay too.
6:21 pm
"i'm sorry for what i've done. i don't know how i could have done such a terrible thing to someone who's been so good to me. i promise never to do it again. i hope you can forgive me." good. it ain't the fanciest writing in the world, but then you ain't no henry woolworth longfellow. it's an apology and, all right, then, i accept. i didn't write this, archie, you did. huh? twenty years ago, when i was gonna leave you because you was gambling, you wrote this. i did not! oh, yeah. see, here it is, your own handwriting. "dearest edith, i'm sorry--" don't read it again, will you?! now, you set me up for that thing, edith. but that don't count. you ain't gonna get away with it. that letter's too old.
6:22 pm
archie, all you've got to do is change the date on this letter and sign it right here under the p.s. that you wrote. see, "p.s., i swear to god i'll never gamble again." and while you're doing that, i'll tell you how sorry i am that i hit you. get me a pencil, edith! look at her, she whips it out like matt dillon. give it here.

you're damn right, i'm right. bradley is 10 times as smart as "yorky." we'll be eating in a couple of minutes. that's just stupid there, jefferson. besides, uh, getting elected, there's more to that than just being smart. there is, huh? then how come we don't have a black president? i mean, some of our black people are just as dumb as nixon. you ain't got a black president, jefferson, because god ain't ready for that yet. wait a second. what?! that's right. god's gotta try it out first by making a black pope, which he ain't done yet. oh, well, maybe that's because god ain't catholic. we know that, lionel. can't you men change the subject? yeah, gloria's right.
6:45 pm
oh, boy. is that all you can talk about, whether a black man or a white man should be president? well, what do you wanna talk about, little girl? how about a woman president? oh, holy cow. a woman president? mr. jefferson, this may come as a big surprise to you, but women are much more oppressed than blacks. i don't see no ghetto for women. what do you call a kitchen? i call it a prison. stay out of this, louise. you're talking foolish. do you know what shirley chisholm said? shirley chisholm said that she ran into more discrimination because she was a woman than because she was black. that's why she didn't get elected. right. because she was talking foolish. mr. jefferson, she wasn't talking foolish. the business world has been doing the same thing to us now that they've been doing to you. they're hiring token women.
6:46 pm
not funny, michael. i'll see you later. mr. jefferson, you've come a long way, baby. but from now on, it's we women who have to overcome, right? you know what i think? what, ma? i think we ought to eat. that's right. and this is what i like to see. the women serving it up and the men eating it up. ha, ha, ha! and look who's first on the line here. oh, oh. come on, mr. liberal, huh? how about a little equal rights with the serving spoon here, huh? look at him heaping his plate. what, have you got friends on the porch? i still think george will come. after all, he's your own brother. uh, i don't think he's gonna come, edith. he just ain't got none of that, what do you call, family unconscious, you know? hey, wait a minute. wait a minute. what do you mean by that, bunker? i didn't mean nothing wrong.
6:47 pm
what do you call, elder cleavage, said. i mean, he was the guy that said that your black families, like, they all shot to hell because you're all on the streets when you're 10 years old. that's what he said. how are you gonna raise a family on the streets with no beds or toilets? why are you looking at me that way? did i say something wrong? bunker, you know more about black people than anybody i ever met. are you sure that somewhere inside you don't have one teensy, weensy drop of black blood? come on. i ain't got none of that. no. then how come you got kinky eyebrows? i ain't got kinky eyebrows. i got my uncle roy's eyebrows. and i ain't got colored blood, lionel. yes, you have, archie. what?
6:48 pm
go on over there and mingle, will ya? the whole point i'm trying to make is that, uh, you take these things like, what do you call, loyal and love. well, your colored families, they don't feel them things like your colorless families. henry: listen. i got something to say. now, gather round, everybody. i'm gonna make a toast to archie. edith: oh! archie: yeah. gloria: a toast for my daddy. it's been a great experience living on this street and watching this wonderful family of edith, gloria and mike. i wanna thank you, bunker, for letting me know and letting me see that some white folks are better than other white folks. well, i wish the whole world could learn that. archie, why don't you toast henry now? oh, all right, i will. george: oh, no, you don't.
6:49 pm
who the hell is that? that's pop. oh! let me get that. get away from that door, meathead. get over there. archie, let him in. edith, edith. back. back. i'll handle this. hey, jefferson, are you asking to come into my house? no, bunker. i wouldn't come in there, not even if you got down on your hands and knees and sang "mammy." hey, jefferson, i don't blame your kid brother for leaving home. if i was your brother, i'd leave home too. if you was my brother, i'd cut my throat. if i was your brother, i'd give you the knife. oh, come on in, pop. george: save your breath, lionel. i wouldn't come in there if he was the last white man on earth. aha! watch this. watch this. ha-ha! you're in. no, i ain't. i'm out. if you're on my stoop, that's the same as being in my house. stoops don't count. stoops always count. stoops never count. don't turn your back on me. oh, there you are. that's in. now you're in. you're in for sure. so, finally, the great jefferson,
6:50 pm
is into the house, all duded up with a flower in his lapel there. or is that one of them things that squirt in your eye? no, it's real. i wear a fresh one every day. ah! you don't blow money on a fresh flower every day. no! i steal one every day from a blind flower girl. he's joking. george, they don't know you here. he's joking. louise. i'll tell them when i'm joking. i was joking. bunker, i'm just gonna say what i have to say to my brother and get out. i'll gladly hold the door for you. henry, when i was a kid, i was always asking mom for a brother. you know how poor we was. so all we could afford was you. oh, george! he's kidding. he's kidding. louise. never interrupt a man when he's toasting.
6:51 pm
the trouble with being a brother is that sometimes you can't always say the things that you really feel. you know, like how good it is to have somebody around to rap to or somebody to kind of pick you up, you know, when you're so low that you have to reach up to touch bottom. well, you know i'm not much of a talker. but there's one thing that needs to be said. i love you, brother. oh, man, you're always doing that. stealing everything that's mine. say what? i was gonna toast those very words to you myself. ah! black families don't feel love, huh, arch? why is it you can always remember everything except how to work? wasn't that a nice toast? yeah, it was all right. you better believe it was all right. i thought it was a nice toast.
