Big White

Desperate to help himself and his beloved, mentally ill wife Margaret, Paul discovers a dead body and passes it off as his missing brother Raymond, whose life is insured for up to $1,000,000. Everybody is duped, except for workaholic insurance investigator Ted Waters, who sets out to expose Paul, in hopes of being promoted out of Alaska.

They're concentrating.

How is he the tea leaf business today?

I've decided, from now on, to ignore you

and your ignorance about my work.

And it's going very well, thank you.

Mr. Williams? I'm seeing sofa cushions.

Do you have a sofa?

Good! Glad I could help.

Okay, before you say anything else

that may keep us

from having sex ever again

let me ask you something.

No, I always get these wrong.

That's why we keep trying.

I don't want to do this.

Love Is Sacrifice quiz.

If you were in a life raft with me,

and there was only enough water for one...

No, I'm not going to do it.

It's just a stupid quiz.

Exactly.

What is that?

I was just kidding.

Psychic Pals.

Is this the first time

you've called us, Mrs...

Stupid quizzes can be illustrative of

potential relationship problems.

Margaret, I'm getting the feeling this is

an anxious day for you.

Hey, you know our only relationship

problem is that you're running a dollar,

ninety-nine a minute carny scam

out of my living room.

Don't call it a scam.

Wait you didn't just call this

"your" living room, did you?

Ours.

Margaret, I feel someone you really care

about, maybe even the love of your life

is being a real pain.

Now, I need you to really concentrate

and I'll be right back.

I thought stuff didn't smell

when it was frozen.

I don't know why we have to...

'Cause Dave wants visual confirmation.

So Dave gets visual confirmation.

We have a chance to move up here, Gary,

so let's just do what we're told.

What's he gonna do, have him stuffed?

Like the guy's not gonna end up

in a landfill anyway.

You ever ask Dave what he did?

Who knows.

But Dave said if he did it one more time,

he was gonna break his neck.

So how did it feel?

I mean, not when you did it, but like now.
