The Love Guru

His Guru, Tugginmypudha, while approving of Deepak, cautions Maurice and has a chastity belt put around his waist, much to Maurice's chagrin. Years later, Maurice has established himself as Guru Pitka in America, but would like to appear in the Oprah Show and be better than Deepak Chopra.

When I was a child in India,

growing up in the tiny village

of Harenmahkeester,

I found a voice-over machine,

which I still use to this day.

Oh, hi.

I decided to use

the Morgan Freeman setting.

I am His Holiness the Guru Pitka.

In my book, If You're Happy

and You Know it, Think Again,

I speak of intimacy, or "into-me-l-see."

Intimacy is like putting your wiener

on the table and having someone say,

"That looks like a penis, only smaller."

Only smaller.

Though I was raised here in India,

I was born in America,

which is where our journey begins.

It's the story of a hockey player

named Darren Roanoke,

my most resistant student,

who became my greatest teacher.

Or some such bullshit. I don't know.

Gotta go!

- Hi, I'm Trent Lueders!

- And I'm Jay Kell.

Tonight is all about champions.

But before we get going,

I'd like to start by thanking

my own personal champions.

The fans who supported me

with their cards and letters

during my recent addiction

to peyote buttons and Frangelico.

I've already apologized to my friends,

my family, and my god.

And now, I'd like to apologize

to Dame Judi Dench

for my vicious and brutal attack.

I'm sorry, Judi, you did not deserve that,

and I hope the staples come out soon.

Over to you, Trent.

Thanks, Jay!

Tonight, the Toronto Maple Leafs'

Darren Roanoke

is the subject of our player profile.

Hockey has its legends.

Now, the new one, Darren Roanoke.

Known as the Tiger Woods of hockey,

Roanoke brought the sport

to a whole new audience.

- Hey, yo, check this, son!

- Check this!

A role model turned bad boy.

He was in a perfect marriage.

But before the playoffs,

he stunned the world

by separating from his wife, Prudence.

From role model to dating models.

Roanoke found out his wife, Prudence,

was dating the L.A. Kings' legendary

French-Canadian goalie,

Jacques "Le Coq" Grande.

He earned his nickname, "Le Coq,"

for reasons that cannot be stated

on this program.

This interview is over.

Holy...

That's when Roanoke fell apart.

Roanoke is hit hard.

Open net! He misses!

Damn, damn, damn!

But the question on everyone's mind is,

can the Leafs win without Roanoke?

Well, can we win the Cup

without Roanoke?

Not a chance, boss.

As long as Jacques "Le Coq" Grande

is banging Darren's wife,

Darren's toast.

My father once told me the Yankees

hired a guru to turn their team around.

I have our guru.

If he can fix Darren, we win the Cup.

They call him the Love Guru.

Tumble out of bed

and I stumble to the kitchen

Pour myself a cup of ambition

Yawning, stretching, try to come to life

Jump in the shower

and the blood starts pumping

Out on the streets

the traffic starts jumping

With folks like me on the job

from 9:
00 to 5:00

Working 9:
00 to 5:00

What a way to make a living

Barely getting by

it's all taking and no giving

They just use your mind

and they never give you credit

It's enough to drive you crazy

if you let it

They let your dream

just to watch them shatter

You're just a step

on the boss man's ladder

But you've got dreams

he'll never take away

You're in the same boat

with a lot of your friends

Waiting for the day

your ship will come in

And the tide's gonna turn

and it's all gonna roll your way

Working 9:
00 to 5:00

for service and devotion

You would think that I

would deserve a fair promotion

Want to move ahead

but the boss won't seem to let me

I swear sometimes

that man is out to get me

Working 9:
00 to 5:00

What a way to make a living

Barely getting by

it's all taking and no giving

They just use your mind

and they never give you credit
