(BLUES MUSIC PLAYING)
You've got to picture this.
It was freshman year, there he is,
completely naked, right outside the office!
And he says, "Ronny told me to show up."
Hey, I have a question for the table.
How long does it take to really know someone?
I think you're continually
getting to know someone.
'Cause I think people change when they grow.
But I do think if you go through hell with someone,
then you get a pretty good sense
of how they handle stuff,
which is important.
Come on, we're on the other side of that one.
I don't know.
I think you can know someone within
the first 10 seconds of seeing them.
I mean, I fell in love with Geneva the second I saw her.
It's true. I did.
Well, I don't know if you ever
really know someone entirely.
And what is that supposed to mean? Yeah.
Well, I mean, you know someone,
and then you find out stuff that's shocking
that you didn't know existed.
I think that happens every day.
Look at that show 20/20, it's always
the same thing, right?
They're a couple, they're happy,
There are a lot of these cases.
What about the guy with the crossbow?
He buys a crossbow, he's practicing in the garage.
"By the way, bring me some lemonade.
"Oh, my goodness, I had no idea you walked
through at that moment. Oops!"
Continue, please. Continue. BETH: That is gross!
But she forgives him. It was an
accident, and guess what?
Six months later, same accident. Yes, and it kills her.
And, lookit, you hear all the time about these families
that have entirely other families.
The dad, who knows what he does for a living,
he leaves to go to Connecticut.
But he was never going to Connecticut on business.
He's really going to Harlem. He's
that no one ever heard about. Yeah.
You think when he's watching the game, instead
of pretzels, he's eating Goya beans.
Red flags, but they don't catch it.
So my point is, you can really
think you know somebody,
and then it turns out that you don't
know everything about somebody.
All right, Ronny. You still haven't
answered the question.
No, I just did. You didn't.
No, you didn't answer it. You're skirting it.
You're not answering straight up. Come on.
You're bouncing around, you're doing
this, "Hey!" When you're doing this...
You do that a lot, by the way.
I think you're all special peoples.
You're out of your mind!
And you're nothing of the sort.
(MAN ANNOUNCING ON PA)
This is our shot. I need you to hug him.
I don't want to hug him.
Lookit, ever since he had a near-death experience,
he's become a very touchy-feely
guy, and he likes to be held.
Look, you know I don't like touching
people I don't know very well, okay?
Or even people I do. So just...
Nick, do you want this thing or not?
Of course I do.
Then feed the beast here!
This guy has a hot button, a point
of interest. His hot button is hugs.
You hug him, you're gonna crack him wide open!
He's going to start feeling all bubbly inside.
Then he starts writing checks!
I'm not asking you to go to an airport motel
and perform a trick on a Japanese businessman.
I'm asking you to hug a senior executive
from General Motors, that's all!
Now get your arms around him,
and make him feel bubbly and warm!
I'll tell you what.
Why don't you let Charles take you guys
over here and show you the entire line.
And it's great to have you here.
Thank you so much for coming. MAN: Thank you.Rate this script:0.0 / 0 votes
