[ laughter ] that was the commercial. >> you must be a very lonely person. [ laughter ] you know. to spend your time-- >> that's the truth. >> to spend your time just logging these memories in your-- and that's what you do at nights? you sit and look at commercials and then come up to somebody a year later and say, "do you remember the john deere

[ laughter ] damn! i had that one. what is the word? >> it's easy to figure out what it means.

and moved to la. [ laughter ] >> all by yourself? >> well, i moved out by myself and my mom said she would come in a few months and i was-- i stayed for about three weeks and i kept calling her and crying on the phone. >> mmhmmm. >> "please come out." so finally, she came out a few weeks later. >> it's awful tough coming out to this town like this and trying to find work, isn't it? >> well, it's not as tough finding work but it's tough keeping a family and keeping friends-- >> yeah. >> because hollywood can really offer a for a short period of time. >> you're right. like what? >> well, you know, it's if you're a young girl and you're talented-- >> right. >> and you're cute, you know-- >> yeah. you're all of those things. >> well, so far. but you know, they're willing to tell you how great you are and that. it's nice to have your family around who are honest with you. >> yeah, can you tell the people who are giving you those kind of flattering accolades that they're not sincere. >> producers. people, you know, who say they can get you a job or you know.

you know, to, um... oh, set a tone and create the mood. well, yeah, that's true. when you're the prince of passion you know all about bedrooms. i guess it's okay but you're liable for damages. okay, thank you! oh, mr. furley, thank you. i promise you won't regret this. if anybody stops here tomorrow about my ad just send them to my place. freeze! did you say you advertised before you even asked me? oh... oops... you caught me. well, see, i knew that it was going to be all right because you are such a wonderful person. ( chuckling ) oh, well, yeah, that's true. now, mr. furley don't say anything to chrissy. it's a surprise for her. you're going to redecorate
o? paint around her while she's asleep? we're all supposed to go skiing this weekend but at the last minute i'm going to back out. then, by the time they get home, it will be all finished. ( chuckles ) you are a very sneaky person, you know that? thank you. and don't tell jack, either 'cause he'll just blab it out and spoil the surprise. oh, you don't have to worry about me. "loose lips sink ships." if you need any help with that room feel free to call on me. in fact, i've been working on this toaster here... i didn't say i fixed it. i just said i'd been working on it. let me help you. wasn't my fault. they didn't give me enough screws. oh, boy, chrissy, i can hardly wait till tomorrow.
jack, how do i look? oh, suzy chapstick, eat your heart out. yeah, and you know when it gets really cold this ski cap makes into a ski mask. oh, let's see. jack, i can't see! take it off! chrissy, hang on, watch out, watch out. oh, oh, that scared me. for a minute my whole life flashed in front of my eyes. what did you see? nothing, it was too dark. hi, guys! did you have a good time baby-sitting? oh, yeah, jack, i really love babies. and that little timmy, he is such a pussycat. i hope you changed his litter box. ( snorting ) jack, quit it! ( laughing ) you really like that little fellow, don't you? yeah, i do, jack, i do. i just have so much fun with him. you know, i smile at him and he smiles back and i tickle him and he laughs, "hee-hee-hee."
hey, you've really spent a lot of time baby-sitting for gwen, haven't you? yeah, but i'm just trying to help out. it isn't easy having a baby by yourself. she had a baby by herself? boy, that's the hard way. it's also the dull way. jack... chrissy, she didn't have the baby by herself. she hired a father. she what?! she hired a father. she put this ad at the medical school you know, where she works for a man who was intelligent and healthy, to... you know... to... help her out. and some guy showed up? uh-huh, chrissy, not "guy," "guys," a lot of them. yeah, well, you'd be surprised at how many men in this world are willing to do a good deed. boy, it sure sounds strange to me. you mean weird. try and understand this, okay?
have a husband and not a child. and some women don't want a child or a husband just a dog. some people are allergic to dogs. some dogs are allergic to people. that's they run away. cats are nice, except if you have a bird. birds are okay, but you have to clean their cage every day. but husbands like birds because they don't talk back. you know, i had this hamster once... come on, girls, let's go! oh, good. janet, where's your suitcase? suitcase? what would i need a suitcase for? well, you'll look pretty silly carrying your underwear around in your hands. oh, no... oh, no, is this the ski weekend? oh, i forgot.
what do you mean you can't go?! we've planned this weekend for weeks! look, i'm really sorry, guys. i have something real important to do. so, so, what are we standing here for? come on, chrissy, get your suitcase. you'll just have to go without me. you better get going. you're going to miss your bus. it's almost 10:00. ( doorbell rings ) there you go, oh... hi, i'm here about the ad. ad? we didn't place an ad. i did, chrissy. come in, please? hello. make yourself comfortable. i'll be with you in just one little moment. come on, jack, get going. have fun... wait a minute, wait a minute. what did you advertise for? oh, didn't i tell you? no. oh, it must have slipped my mind. ah, well, see, here it is. we have been so busy down at the flower shop, just swamped and i need an assistant. flower shop? i thought... ( laughs nervously )
wait a minute. is that going to take all weekend? oh, yeah, probably, sure. you know how hard it is to find the right person for a job. i want to take my time and find just the right man. well, suppose you find the right person right away? well, in that case, chrissy, i'll... don't know what i'll do. i'll probably just spend the rest of the weekend in bed. so come on, guys, get going. go on, have fun! but i wanted you to go. next time. now you all have fun! both: good-bye! whew, they fell for it. oh, hi, you two. hi, mr. furley. going skiing? no, we're going to harpoon some guppies. where's janet? she's upstairs, she couldn't go. oh, that's right, i forgot. wait a minute. did she tell you she wasn't going? n-n-no...
the furley lips are sealed. tick a lock! chrissy, something very strange is going on. yeah. what? just think a minute. okay, but it doesn't always work. she's known about this trip for weeks. why didn't she say last night she wasn't going? well, 'cause she was so busy arguing about having babies and hiring fathers. and then this morning, a guy shows up about some ad. and she wants to spend the weekend in bed... oh, my god...! and she told us to have a good time. what are you talking about? chrissy, don't you see? she's not hiring an assistant. she's hiring a father. don't be silly, janet already has a father.

- it was the carburetor. - oh yeah, well, i was gonna look at that next. come on, helen. - no, i'll ride home with jenny. - oh, maybe you oughtta go along with mr. roper, i'll just take off now. - well, aren't you going to come back and have some brunch? - what about mr. roper? - he can have some, too. - well, did you enjoy brunch stanley? - never ate so fast in my life. - don't you like jenny? - she clears the table like a vacuum cleaner. - well, you see, you two have a lot in common. - where is she now?
finished. - you know stanley, you know what i was thinking? - yes, and the answer is no. you'd like her to stay one more night wouldn't you, right? - wrong. i'd like her to stay as long as she wants to stay. [doorbell ringing] - what? you know you and my car have a lot in common, you're both firing on half your cylinders. word with you. - okay how about this one, goodbye. [applause] - stanley! oh mr. brooks, i'm so sorry, what did you want to see us about? - i want you to get rid of that female rose thief!
through playing games here? young lady, i think you should hear this, too. good lord she's wearing suspenders. - what do you got in mind, brooks? - i think you should bear in mind that the tenants of royal dale townhouses are reputable people. - well, stanley and i are - are exceptions. are are you going to send her packing or not? - that's for me to decide and you to find out. - but she's riffraff. could you talk that way in front of jenny? jenny? oh, her bag was right there. jenny? oh stanley, she's gone! - and good riddance. - now look what you've done, you made her feel unwanted, and
- oh no you did not! - yeah, brooks just helped me decide, i mean, there's a lot of great things that jenny did she she fixed your neck, she fixed my car, she ruined brooks' rosebush. - you really wanted her to stay? - cross my heart, i was going to tell her tonight, she could stay as long as she wants. - i accept! thank you!
