But of course, you know, an adult says,

"Hello therel Who are you?

You stop and you say, "I'm Dwight."

Bill's like, "Come onl"

You're stuck on the landing

between Bill at the top of the stairs

and you're at the bottom of the stairs.

And, "Well, just hold on. Where are you from?"

I go, "I live in Nottingham Forest too."

"What does your father do?"

"Works for Shell Oil." "Uh-huh?"

'Just leave him alonel" Bill's screaming at you

to come upstairs. "Come onl"

"Bill, would you just hold on?

I'd like to know who your friends are. "

"Aaahl What does it matter?

What does it matter?"

"Well, we're just curious.

Is there a problem we're being curious?"

When you reached his room, the door would

be closed and locked and you were safe.

I had told him that I wanted to be an actor

and he goes, "I'll show you

these jokes that I wrote. "

Because we were joking around so much, he

started saying we should be a comedy team.

It was completely alien to me.

I had no idea what a comic really was.

He told me that he'd seen Woody Allen

on Casino Royale.

This guy made his living being a comic,

and it really, really fired him up,

the importance of stand-up,

that society cherished its funny people.

And for Bill, he knew it. He knew that he was

gonna be the comic that shook people up.

His mom figured out how to pick the lock.

The door would open

and she'd be standing there with a butter knife.

"What are you doing?"

"I know you don't like me picking your lock

"but I am leaving

and you have not responded to me. "

"Well, don't ever unlock my door againl" Ppkkl

I'd never met anyone

who talked to his parents like that.

The Hicks family

is a very smart, intellectual family

yet there was this suspension of reason

when it came to certain issues.
