Hey, hey. If you're coming in

for the morning grind...

...it's another brutal Monday out there


The 2 is slow-and-go to the 5.

A Sig Alert is bogging down the I-10.

And if you're on the 405 freeway,

you're probably already late for work.

If your boss gives you a hard time about it,

have him come down here and talk to...

- ...Rachel.

- Oh, no.

Zing! Ha, ha. Thanks, Skip.

But, hey, speaking of bosses,

after the break...

...we get to meet three guys who are chasing

their dream of becoming their own bosses.

Stay with us.

And we're out. Very good, guys.

We're back in 90 seconds.

Jesus Christ.

Dale, you gotta stop sweating, pal.

- Oh, wow, you are wet.

- "Stop sweating." How do I stop sweating?

This is a big deal.

We got everything riding on this.

We've quit our jobs, I have three children

to think about now. How about that?

Think about this. You do a good job now,

you're gonna make your boys very proud.

- Girls. I have three girls, dude.

- Hmm? Right. You can't even tell at that age.

- They basically look like potatoes with arms.

- Don't call my kids potatoes.

- Respect the kids.

- Don't piss him off.

- They wear pink!

- Calm him down.

A lot of guys wear pink.

- I have a pink polo shirt that I love.

- Come on.

- Can we get a roll of paper towels?

- Can I get paper towels?!

Why are you barking at people?

He's saying please, you're just barking.

- Bad manners.

- Buddy, dry your face.

- He's freaking out.

- It's unbelievable.

- Can you go on without me?

- Why don't you wait in the car?

Stop, this is gonna be easy.

You have to calm down.

Look, Nick's gonna hit them with facts

and figures, because he's the brains, right?

You talk about how you and your wife f***ed

and made three potatoes with arms.

You're the heart. Me,

I'll do my thing, get in where I fit in.

- You're the soul?

- No, I'm the dick and balls.

- Got it.

- Why would I wanna be the soul?

- Just don't pass out. Just keep breathing.

- See? This will be easy.

- All we have to do is be ourselves.

- Let's not. Ourselves is a Dumpster fire.

- Let's be better. Let's try to elevate a little.

- That's a good note. Nobody be themselves.

All right, we're back in 20 seconds.

Hey, fellas, thanks for coming.

- Nice to meet you.

- Good morning. How are you?

Hey, my man. There's trouble.

- Too much.

- Well, he went with it.

- Dale Arbus.

- Pleasure to meet you, man.

- Thanks for coming on. This will be fun.

- Yeah.

Does that zip all the way down?

And we're back in five, four...

Get up, get up, get up, and get out.

Ha, ha! And we're back.

You know, every week we like to highlight...

...local inventors and entrepreneurs

in our Big Idea Spotlight.

That's right, Mike.

And today we have

three modern-day...

...Edisons who've created a new shower gadget

they hope to really clean up with.

Please, welcome Nick, Kurt and Dale.

- Pleasure to be here.

- Before we get to the product, can you tell us...

...what is it that inspired three regular Joes

to go into business for yourselves?

We were all working at pretty terrible jobs

for some awful bosses.

And thought if we got a chance to be

our own bosses, we'd do things differently.

This might be our shot.

We didn't think we'd get the chance,

but Dale had an amazing idea.

Don't go to Dale.

And, uh, we started meeting together

to talk about the invention...

...instead of complaining about our jobs.

Hey, I think that's exciting.

Dale, you know, I just wanna know,

where did the idea come from...

- ...for a new showerhead?

- I have three kids.
