for being the meanest,

nastiest people in town,

but that's just because

folks didn't know them.

They were actually

very nice, hardworking people.

They ran

the local construction company,

and recently, responding to the needs

of the community...

Yo, Morris.

...had opened a little security business.

It was a surprisingly popular service

among the local vendors.

Hey, you don't shake me down.

I'm Italian. I shake you down.

Is that right?


Get his ass in here.

I'm in.

As time passed,

Rasputia and I got closer and closer,

in high school and as adults.

I started working as a bookkeeper

in her family's business.

I'm expecting

some important calls today, Norbit,

so when you answer the phone,

try and sound white.

So when you answer the phone,

try and sound white.

It was like everything was

finally coming together.


Of course,

it was only natural that Rasputia and I

would take the next step

in our relationship.

I now pronounce you man and wife.

You may kiss the bride.

Open your mouth.

Go, Rasputia!

It was a storybook wedding,

the beginning of a brandnew chapter.

I knew I would never be lonely again.

I had found my place in the world.

Poor Norbit. Man.

Back when I was in the game,

I used to tell my hos,

"Hos, ain't no man gonna pay for

the cow if he can get the milk for free."

You ain't got to worry

about this brother buying the milk,

'cause he just bought

the whole damn cow.

That's a special cow, too.

That must be

where buttermilk come from.

Sing that shit, girl.

Them are not dimples.

Them are potholes in her ass.

Look like an Escalade

in a wedding dress.

It a horror show.

Norbit. What a woman you got.

Hi, fellows.

We're all jealous, right, boys?

Oh, yeah. Way jealous.

Wish I had one like that.

Norbit, let me talk to you for a second.
