disease foundation, i'm collecting in the neighborhood. good luck. sir, won't you at least hear me out? i gave at the office. well, isn't this your office? well, that depends. it's my office, also my home. a man's home is hisastle. that's why i'm asking you to leave 'cause i don't want no hassle in my castle. one day, you may be sorry you didn't give. it won't be today. you talking to? nobody. just somebody collecting for heart disease. well, did you give him anything? i'm not in favor of heart disease. you talk to him, i'm going to fix me some breakfast. say, brother! say, could you come back in the house for a minute? thank you. hey, look. i'm sorry if my old man gave you a hard time, but, you know, he gets kinda cranky. it's quite all right. i'm used to it. most people don't seem to realize how wide spread heart disease really is
like my father? yes. heart disease is the number one killer in america, but actually, most heart attacks and related ailments, such as strokes, are caused from hypertension. do you know that hypertension afflicts 30 to 40% of the black population in america over 30 years of age? for every black american that dies from sickle cell anemia, over 100 will die from a heart attack. no, i didn't know that. yes. say, listen, blood, why don't you come in here and sit down. i want to ask you some questions. all right. is it possible for somebody to have, say, 3 or 4 heart attacks a day? [laughs] no, i sure doubt it. after the second one, they'd probably be dead. no, one big one and it's all over. then it's not likely that a person could average, say, 26 big ones a week, huh? no, no. that's unbelievable. yeah, i thought so, too. now, if this person claims to have that many attacks,
his person have a heart attack? oh, yeah. all the time. this person is, uh, like a father to me. does this person complain about a tightening in the chest? a pain in the left shoulder and arm? dizziness? nausea? all of that. uh-huh. well, then, if i were you, i would have this person thoroughly examined after the next attack. that way, if it's really a heart attack, it will show up when they're given an electrocardiogram test. well, do you know a place where you could get one of these tests? oh, yeah, certainly. i think i have it here somewhere. our lady of the leaves hospital. oh, yeah. i know that. mm-hmm. they have a cardiac alert department there that admits patients 24 hours a day. oh, hey, thank you very much, brother. that's all right. hey, look. you might not notice, but you've saved a very valuable life. oh, you mean this person's? no, mine. here you go. here's a dollar for the heart fund. ha ha! thank you very much. on second thought, i feel generous. make it 2. aw, thank you. you know, if i could meet 30 million more people as generous as you,
well, good luck. all right. ok. hey, pop, you know, i was-- shh! what are you doing? i'm trying to hear if this cereal really goes snap, crackle, and pop. i can hear my snap and my crackle, but they beat me outta some of my pop. uh, say, look. i was gonna wait till tonight to tell you this, but i don't think i should. i'm gonna have to lay it on you now. if it's bad news, tell me tomorrow. well, you remember you was the one that always told me never to put off for tomorrow-- wait a minute. i never did finish that. i wanted to say, "never put off for tomorrow "what you can do the day after tomorrow." so, tell me the day after tomorrow. no, i'm gonna lay it on you now. brace yourself, pop. you braced? i'm braced. all right. here it is. i'm getting married. you what?! i'm getting married. wh-what happened? did you--did you make some girl pregnant?
something like this to yourself? when did you decide to do all this? see, i've been thinking about it for a long time now, but i just recently decided to do it. well, is it evelyn rogers? no. well, did i ever meet her? yeah, you met her once. her name is maria. maria? you don't mean "magic fingers maria" down at this massage parlor on manchester and main? no, her name is maria fuentes. she's julio's sister. you--julio, who live over there with the goat? that julio? one and the same. you mean to stand there and tell me you're gonna marry a puerto rican? that's right. oh, no! oh, yes. it's already been arranged. but look on the bright side of it, pop. when we have our first son, we'll name him after you. we'll call him fredrico. little fredrico manuel-- oh, no! wait, man! don't say that.
you hear that, elizabeth? i'm comin' to join ya, honey. with an invitation to a puerto rican wedding. aah! what's the matter, pop? i'm having a heart attack, that's what's the matter. are you sure it's a heart attack? yeah, i'm sure it's a heart attack. well, we better get right on down to the hospital. come on. wait a minute. wait a minute. hospital? i ain't goin' to no hospital. but, pop, you need medical attention. i don't need no medical attention. yes, you do! man, you need medical expert treatment. now, they got a cardiac alert department not too far from here he leaves hospital. now, come on. let's go. no, i don't need to go to the hospital. i'm fine. just give me a glass of our ripple of the grapes. you had a heart attack, didn't you? now, come on. wait a minute. where you say you're taking me? i already told you, man. i'm taking you to the hospital. now, we'll find out how bad your heart is once they give you that electrocardiogram test. now, come on! no, wait a minute. ain't nobody gonna put no electric cards on my heart. forget that. pop, it's painless. now, come on! listen, let me go.
"ohh! that was nice and painless!" pop, it's a precautionary measure. now, one day, you're gonna thank me for this. now, come on. let's go. [mumbles] wait a minute. wait a minute. now i really feel bad. what is it, pop? is it another-- is it another heart attack? then we better hurry up. ohh, wait a minute. it's not that, son. it's those pig feet and butter beans. well, come on, then. now, come on, pop. it's gonna be painless. now, just relax. now, look, here's your room. 393.

is everything all right? it was. everything is fine, nurse. he's just an old man. he's a little upset at being in a hospital. that's a lie. i'm a whole lot upset. mr. sanford, these tests are for your own good, but you aren't compelled to take them. i'm not? of course not. bye. oh, no, you don't. now, you're gonna stay in this hospital and get those tests. now, this is a nice room, pop. you'll be comfortable here. 'cause i hate hospitals. i hate the smell of hospitals. all them smell like lysol. they even cook with lysol. [sniffs] lysol. well, you won't be here very long. we should have all of your tests completed in a few hours. here. you can slip this on and i'll be back to see you in a few minutes. why do i have to slip this thing on?
what's that? sounds like the gentleman in the bed over there. ohh! ohh! hey, man! hey! will you shut up? just shut up. this is a hospital. people are in here sick. hey, pop, look at yourself. man, the man's obviously sick or he wouldn't be in a hospital. he's probably here because his heart's acting up on him. now, how you know that? well, because heart disease is very common nowadays. did you know that hypertension and heart disease i didn't know that. i thought it was the police. [no audio] well, you're not gonna have to worry about any more heart attacks, pop, 'cause they'll probably give you some miracle drug to fix you right up. drug? then i'll be a dope fiend. i won't be fred sanford the junk man. i'll be fred sanford the junkie. hey, pop, you gotta think positive, man.
rest and take it easy, and i'll do all the work. well, let's just say for some strange reason, the tests prove that i don't have a bad heart. well, in that case, you'll be able to do some of the work around the house like sweepin' and dustin' and moppin' and washin' that truck and cleanin' out those cabinets and hangin' curtains and takin' those things down that are supposed to be-- ohh! now i really feel bad. where's the pain, pop? is it in your heart? it was in my heart. but after lookin' at you 2, it moved further down. john, we're giving you a raise. that's fantastic! but i'm gonna pass. are you ok? honey, you got another present. no thank you, dad.
