Greedy Page #2

Synopsis: Uncle Joe is ageing. He's also a millionaire. That's why his family is trying so very hard to get into his good books. They all want a piece of his empire. Unfortunately Uncle Joe isn't as stupid as his family thinks he is. He can see that his family is only nice to him because they want his money. Along comes Daniel McTeague, a struggling bowler, imported from another city by his family, to put an end to this ridiculous situation. The fight won't be easy, though, because the poor family has a little bit of competition - A beautiful nurse who takes care of Uncle Joe (and no doubt would love to take care of his bank account). Who gets all the money?

Well, you know...

Will you be able to fit all your exercise equipment

into your new apartment?


- What new apartment?

- Glen and Muriel are separa...

You're keeping that a secret. I feel horrible.

- I could cut out my tongue.

- Here's a knife.

- No, really, I'm...

- You split up?


- No!

- No!

- Then why...?

- It's...

You know I'm starting that new business?

Well, it takes a lot of time and energy,

and when I'm with J... Muriel, I just...

I am so crazy about her

that all I can think about is...

- You know.

- Yeah.

So I thought I'd move out for a while

and I'd be able to get some work done.

[flatulence sounds]

Anyway Glen it's nobody's business what you two do.

I mean you have no kids. You're both barren.

Frank, I almost forgot to ask you.

How is Tina's hit-and-run case coming?

- Hit-and-run case?

- Yeah.

You remember when Tina got drunk

and ploughed into that school bus?

Ploughed? She just scraped paint off it.

The brakes failed. Everyone was fine.

The kids, the nuns.

I just thank God she wasn't in one of

those little sports cars like your girlfriend's.

- They're death-traps.

- What?

His girlfriend drives a Chrysler.

Big blue one.

She's not my girlfriend!

She's an instructor at the gym. I met...

I left my gym bag at the gym

and she was bringing it back to me.

I guess you have time to notice

these things Ed now that you're not working.

What happened?

- Nothing.

- Nothing.

There was sort of a little cutback at Ed's place.

They let go of some of the employees

that were...

Selling company secrets and selling them

to competitors. Pass the butter, please.

That's a lie and I'll prove it in court!

- This Friday, right?

- We got a continuance.

The court dockets were too filled

with drunk-driving cases.

I skidded on a wet spot!

- Somebody get her a drink.

- A drink? Somebody get her a barrel.

Please everyone. Why must this happen

every time we get together?

Can't this man have peace?

Hasn't he earned it?

Delivering newspapers when he was four years old,

his little toes frozen because he didnt have any shoes.

- It's all right.

- No, its not alright. It's like we've lost our sense of values.

Maybe it's not mine to say, but

Nora and I... Come up here, sweetie...

and Joseph and Jonas and little Josiah

on the way...we lead a simple life.

We have each other,

and I ask u what the heck else is there?

Joe-Joe, I'm just going to the market.


Molly! Come here.

These are my nieces and nephews.

Everyone, this is Molly.

- Hi!

- Hi.

- Douglas said you wanted to see me?

- If you're going to the market we are out of Oreos?

We wouldn't be out of Oreos

if somebody hadn't eaten the insides
