Next time you see any leprechauns,

we'll tell Aspen.

She's half-troll.

I think, trolls eat

leprechauns, am I right?


She would.

[Marty] Today magic is

in the air at the grand hotel,

and the winds of change

are about to blow our story

in a strange new direction.

But what would you expect in a hotel

founded by someone who loved

a good story as much as I?

Time is of the essence here, Skeeter.

Oh, yeah, I know. I just don't want

the big boss man to get electrocuted.

Of course.

- You fixed it?

- Let me see here.

- [Feedback]

- Yo, yo. Yo, yo.

Check, check. One, two. Come on.

Yeah, yeah. Hear me in the back?

- Whoa, whoa.

- Skeeter.

I say "Barry,"

you say "Nottingham."

- Barry.

- [All] Nottingham.

- Barry.

- [All] Nottingham.

Barry had a Nottingham

Nottingham, Nottingham

Barry had a Nottingham

Whose beard was

white as snow

[laughs] Come on,

give it up for the big man.


Got them warmed up for you, sir.

- It's good to see you again.

- Germs.

- Germs?

- Uh, Skeeter,

Mr. Nottingham has

developed a fear, uh...

Not a fear, an awareness...

...of germs and

how dangerous they can be

when not properly... feared, so...

You're doing the right thing.

I didn't shower today.

So, yeah, let me get out of here.

[Skeeter] Barry Nottingham, everybody.

- He's brilliant, him. I love this guy.

- [Barry] Welcome.

As you know, I own 23 hotels

from Berlin to Beijing.

But it's no secret that this one,

the Sunny Vista Nottingham,

is my favorite.

However, this is a 20th-century hotel.

We need something for the 21 st century.

And so, we have decided

to close this hotel

and to build a brand-new

Sunny Vista Mega Nottingham.


This will be the largest hotel

on the West Coast.

I simply don't understand what the fuss
