On this hot and steamy

fourth of July weekend...

...independence is all about the money.

Every grocery store, liquor store,

gas station and corner market...

...has long lines out its doors...

...as people wait to purchase their

Mondo Millions lottery tickets.

Tonight's jackpot:

a record $370 million...

...has infected this city

with lottery fever.

We asked local residents

what they'd do with all that money.

l would give half the money to charity.

l would get drunk as hell.

l'd probably feed the whole world.

Enjoy life, you know.

l'd put it in my pocket.

l'm gonna go ski diving.

Hello, hello, hello. This is Mutt.

l quit.

What would you buy for yourself?

An all-white Versace suit.

Would you break up with your girlfriend?

Yeah.

l'd do the same thing l'm doing now.

-You wouldn't change a thing?

-Uh-uh.

-l'm sorry, Mom. l wanna shop.

-l'd quit selling fruit.

So would you split the money fifty-fifty?

-Yes.

-l would change everything.

Probably a mail-order bride.

-l would paint for the rest of my life.

-l would lose my mind.

Have more fun.

''Oh, my gosh! l won! Yay!''

Okay.

Damn.

ls that a home-cooked meal?

Yo! Miss Carson!

lf you don't come in here

like you got sense...

...l'm gonna knock some into you.

My bad, Miss Carson. l didn't mean

to slam that door like that.

ls Kevin ready yet?

He's in his room.

All right. Cool.

You looking exceptionally well today.

What you been using,

cocoa butter and Jesus?

l forgot to tell you,

there's a dude that live down the street...

...he was almost in

The Temptations.

You should holler at him. l'm telling you,

you're single, sexy and saved.

Get out my face, boy.

Think about it.

l'm gonna take this to Kevin.

Now, who got more swag than me?

Nobody.

You ain't got no swag.

-Man, look at you.

-This is so good.

Why you always come over,

eating all my food?

Why you so stingy?

Be nice. Come on, l'm your best friend.

You need to eat, man.

Gotta buff up a little bit.

Don't put it on my bed, man.

Oh, my God, Kev.

-Ooh. So many smuts outside.

-What you talking about, ''smuts''?

Dip-offs, scrapes, women.

And they're wearing booty shorts

up to here, looking bad.

That's why l gotta look fly.

Which brings me to my next point.

Let me rock these.

-Hell, no.

-Why not?

l can't look like this?

It's 10,000 degrees outside.

Look at me, man. Look how l look.

l look like a homeless thug.

-No. No. No.

-Fly.

All right, l see how it is.

l'm telling your grandmama you stingy.

-Grown man - Man, be quiet.

Miss Carson!

Thanks for breakfast, Miss Carson.

Appreciate it. Appreciate it.

Hey, get out the way.

All right, Grandmama.

l love you. l'm out.

You're not gonna eat your breakfast?

No, because l'm gonna be late

for work.

Oh, but you have time

to iron your shoestrings?

l hope the little girls

you trying to impress is worth it.

''Little girls''?

Don't worry, Kevin ain't getting no pu

Ahem.

-l mean, Kevin doesn't have a girlfriend.

He doesn't let these Jezebels

get near him.

You know the one l'd like

to see you with, huh?

Here we go.

Stacie.

Oh, she's a bright girl

and she goes to church.

Grandma, look, we are just friends,

all right? That's it.

Friends.

-All right, dear.

That would be nasty.

Suit yourself.

Now, wait a minute, here.

l want you to play my number for me

on the way home, okay?

And don't let nobody copy them

either. All right?

-l won't.

-Those are my numbers.

l dreamt them up last night.

They're out of the Holy Scripture.

Okay.

You know something? Last night l dreamt

that l was waiting on the number 11 bus.

You'll never guess who was driving

when the bus pulled up.

-Who?

-Jesus.

And l said, ''Jesus, what are

you doing driving this bus?''

-You know what he said to me?

-No, ma'am.

He said, ''Child, it's a recession.

Times is hard.''

-That's what he said.

-You didn't ask me...

...but how did Jesus get a license

without a birth certificate?

-lt makes no sense.
