Brother Nature

Synopsis: Roger (Taran Killam), a strait-laced politician has big plans to propose to his dream girl (Gillian Jacobs) at her family's lake house. But everything goes awry when he meets his potential brother-in-law Todd (Bobby Moynihan): a full-time camp counselor with a heart of gold and a wild sense of fun, pining to be Roger's best friend, and ultimately catapulting him into a series of unfortunate events. As Roger tries to take a stand amidst outrageous fishing excursions, propulsive water jetpacks and American history-themed musicals, he realizes that being a part of a new family may be more difficult than he'd thought.

The inset is perfect.

All right, it's ready.

And you're positive?

Yes, thank you

for your Patience.

I know I've sent it back a

few times for adjustments...


Five times.


Well, I hope you and your future

bride will live happily ever after.

I hope you live happily

ever after yourself.

Nothing's gonna happen for me until

I get these bangs figured out.

- Roger!

- Hey.

Congressman McClaren

should be here at 11:41.

Is this the rewrite on his speech?


Good. Good.

Let's cut this section. Start

with "born in Seattle"

and go into the

dedication of troops.

Okay so, wait...

Actually no, I'll do that. Okay.

Do you want me

to run a sound check?

Already did that. Are there too

many red balloons on this side?

Um. Maybe. Do you want

me to do something?

Yeah. Grab the raw veggies out

of my car and put them on ice?



Hey, Riggleman,

are these balloons symmetrical?

We have a situation.

This is the a Cappella

group, the founding fathers.

They're the opening act

for frank.

Ah. Gentlemen,

I'm Roger Fellner,

congressman McClaren's

chief of staff.

What seems to be the problem?

Well, our bass is drunk.

If it's talk about me,

I'm right here.

You have a problem, Gabe!

Don't provoke him, please.

Uh, if I may suggest something?

If you three switch your

baritone to a bassitone

and then you transpose

it up half a step,

you'll still have a nice,

clean three-part Harmony.

It's not going to be perfect, but

they won't know the difference.

I see why one of

them had to drink.

I've been coming

to this festival

for longer than I can remember,

but somehow the funnel cake

keeps getting tastier.

I was born and raised

here in Seattle...


No, no, no.

Guess what?

I'm the best!



Is he okay?

Might be time to check the

prescription on those bifocals, Ben.

Frank, I take

full responsibility.

I don't think any clips

will end up on YouTube...

Roger, lighten up.

I recovered. That

bifocal line destroyed.

And just off the top of

your head I was like,

"am I watching

whose line is it anyway?"

Oh. Thank you.

That's my favorite show.

I've decided not to

run for re-election.

Oh, my... are you okay?

Is it your health or...

I'm fine.

My wife left me...

Oh! That b*tch!

...A note, Roger.

She left me a note

saying that she missed me.

You know, it made me

realize I miss her, too.

Now, I know it doesn't

give you much time...

You've given me more than

time, you've given me...

You need to let me complete

my sentences, Roger.

Time to campaign.

I think that you

should run for my seat.

There's no one more qualified...

Yes. I will do it.

You don't need to

give me an answer now.

You can discuss it with your family.

I'll do it. I want it.

I'm definitely prepared. I think

education reform should be my...

Roger, take a deep breath.

I want you to really

think about this.

This job consumes

every part of you.

Now, I'm telling you now so you

have the vacation to consider.

And when we get back,

if you still want it,

you have my full endorsement.

Sir, I cannot thank you enough.

This is my dream... My whole life...

since fifth-grade student council

I knew that...

I'm sorry if I seem a little distracted

but drunk Ben Franklin is back,

and I just want to make sure that

baby he's holding is his baby.

Yes, you should do that. Okay!

See you in a week.

So grateful. Thank you!

Hey, is that your baby?

Yes, it is.

Is that your baby?

This is my baby.

I am speechless. Come on. I

couldn't do it without you.

That's not true. No,

that's not entirely true.

I could probably do

a fair amount, but...

Riggleman, will you

be my campaign manager?

Of course, Roger! Yes.

A hundred times, yes!

Sure, sure. I'll get

started right away.

I'll get a scout,

get headquarters...

Well don't break your back, you

know, enjoy your vacation.

Uh, all I have planned

is mother's birthday.

Well, that's nice.

No, it's not nice.

All she wanted this year was

to take me to get a haircut.

Which means we will go to

a salon, of her choosing,

and she will watch me receive

a haircut, of her choosing.

Moms, gotta love them, right?

I don't love my mom.

I fear her.

Uh-huh. Well,

I gotta go. I'm late.

...and because

of your generous donations,

the read the world foundation

can continue its work

traveling the globe,

and building libraries

in under-developed countries.

This year, we're asking for

your help to raise money

for our trip to Bangladesh,

where we'll spend three months

establishing literacy programs

in the sundarbans.

Thank you for the $5.

Great to see you!

Okay, take care. Bye.

So great, start to finish...

I saw you come in late.

I know. I'm sorry. Drunk

Ben Franklin stole a baby.

That old excuse?

I know.

But I would like to make a very

generous donation as an apology.

Ooh! Accepted. Now we only

mostly didn't reach our goal.

Oh, no, is it bad?

Well, we have a big

fundraiser next month,

but we are so far behind.

Well, I guess maybe

you just don't leave your

boyfriend for three months?

Maybe you come with me?

Will you settle for a week

with your folks at the lake?

I can't wait for you to see

it, it's so wonderful there.

And we deserve a break.

Absolutely. Yes.

Is now a bad time to tell you

I'm running for congress?

Hi, Gwennie!

Hi, guys! Hi,

kiddo, how are you?

Ew! Dad, what are you chewing on?

Back away from the camera!


What are you packing for?

Come on, get here!

Did you get my email

about packing your own towels?

Because for some reason the only

ones that aren't being used

have these weird stains on them.

- I packed towels.

- Oh! Hi, Roger!

Hey, guys.


Guys, Roger is running for congress!



Oh, my god!

Mr. president in the making!

You're the man!


I gotta go get the stuff out of the dryer.

I love you guys, I'll see you tomorrow!

No, don't, uh, hang up.

I just got to ask them...

Just about, um... Because

the weather was, uh...

Hey, guys. Um, actually,

when we get up there,

I would love to find a moment

alone with the two of you

to discuss something.

You're going down!

Oh, my god, we're under attack!

Gotta go. Under attack!

Ow! Ow! Ow!

That one hit my boob, Todd!

Oh, man, it's a war zone

over there



Who is this?

Tomorrow, you're mine.

Hey, Gwen...


Your sister's boyfriend Todd

sent me a friend request on Facebook.

Oh. That's nice.

I mean, we haven't

met before, right?

No, because

they live in Colorado

and he wasn't at Thanksgiving because

he had something at the camp.

"The camp"? Yeah, he's a counselor.

You knew that.

I just didn't realize it was

like a year-round thing.

I mean, he seems like a fun guy.

Are you ready for your first political

scandal, Mr. future-congressman?

I love you so much.

No, don't get romantic because then

I'm going to get self-conscious.

Sorry. Keep the fantasy.

Get over here.

Mmm. Scandal me!
