Good afternoon, freshmen,

freshwomen and, uh,

people of freshness.

Welcome to Stratford University's

freshman orientation.

I'm your tour guide,

Darryl Witherspoon.

I got another tour group in about

a half hour, so let's get to tourin'.

Come on. Come on.

Speed walk. Speed walk.

It's good for your soul.

That's it. You got it.

So, as an economics major,

this is where I spend

the majority of my time.

And thanks to Stratford University's

top-notch financial aid program...

[Coughs] Bullshit... I spend

the rest of my time giving tours,

working food services...

and delivering campus mail.

Now, this package has brought us

to the administration building.

And here, encased in this glass...

No, it's not Superfly's pimp cane.

This is the Truman Scepter.

This next package will be taking us...

to the neuropsychology building.

Let's go. Neuropsychology.

Let's go.

- Let's go. Here you go.

Hold that for me. Thanks, baby.

- [Claps]

Hey, we're gonna stop over

at the cafeteria and bust a little suds.

Girls wash. Guys dry.


And here we have

Stratford University's prizewinning...

neuropsychology department.

Oh, I just wanted to thank you

all for helping me out with

my campus maintenance duties.

I think it's a beautiful thing.

But remember,

plastic goes in the blue,

paper in the green.

Be back in a jiff.



Dr. Wheedon?

Got a package for you.

Um, right there's fine.

Thank you.

Wow. That little fellow glows

in the dark, huh?

I wish the ones at my mom's house

would glow in the dark.


Thank you.

There's a building, building, building.

That building's old.

That building got windows.

And here we are,

back at Albert Lovett Library.

And that, my friends,

is the end of your tour.

And the beginning of yours.


[Man] Gaining 13 and three quarters,

utilities up about a fifth of a point.

- And the big-board composite

up.6 and 45236.

- [Phone Rings]

- There were over 115 million

shares traded on the big board.

- [Sighs]

- Yeah.

- [Woman On Phone] Hi. Darryl?

Hey, Ma. How you doin'?

Oh, same old, same old.

Blase, blase.

The kids are drivin' me crazy,

stove don't work and the roaches

are gettin' attitude.

So, when do you start

your new job on Wall Street?

Well, I don't exactly

have the job.

There's a lot of competition

for that Smythe-Bates job.

My oldest son is gonna starve.

- I'm not going to starve.

- How are you gonna pay your tuition?

Ma, I'll just get

another job, okay?

[Sighs] Well, you know,

I didn't want to say anything,

but they threatened to turn off the gas.

Just send me the bill.

How much is it?

- $223.

- Damn, what you cookin'?

Well, baby, we got to eat.

And you know I like to cook

everything down nice and slow.

- You know.

- Uh, just send it, Ma.

I didn't wanna tell you this,

but, uh, you know I'm front-runner

for that Smythe-Bates job.

I'm so proud of you.

And the job pays $60,000 a year.

- Oh, baby.

- So, you, Darius, Lyndell,

Brandon and April...

Y'all don't have to worry.

- I love you, Darryl.

- [Makes Kissing Noise]

[Receiver Clicking Off]

- [Sighs]

- [Phone Rings]

[Old Woman Voice] Hello?

[Woman] This is the Stratford

University tuition office.

May I speak to Darryl Witherspoon?

Uh, no, uh, Darryl's not

with us anymore.

He, uh, he die.

- Oh, I'm so sorry.

- [Tearfully]

Yeah, th-they killed my baby.

He got involved with that whole

East Coast/West Coast thing,

and being that he is from Chicago,

they both banged on him.

Hi. Darryl Witherspoon.
