yeah, i'm glad we're finished with that. finally got the storm windows in place, michael. yeah. man, will you look at that snow out there? it's like a miracle. now, what's so miraculous about a snowstorm? overnight, the neighborhood has gone lily-white. coffee's ready! good morning, everybody. good morning, husband. it's kiss-and-hug time. mm-hmm. when isn't it? thank you, bro-in-law. hey, michael, that's my doughnut. nah. possession is 9/10 of the law. oh, keith, when is a dumb old doughnut more important than a kiss and hug from your wife? hey, baby, you know you don't take no backseat to a lousy jelly doughnut. why, i'd give my life for you, but we're talking custard. oh, keith! just jiving, baby.
i got to warm up my bones! well, i'm so glad it's just your bones because brazil does not make enough coffee to warm the rest of you. i tell you, bookman -- the abominable snowman. bookman, why are you here? i don't think you heard me. bookman, why are you here? what's the matter? you got twinkies in your ears? good coffee. the man is wearing earmuffs. oh, good. then we can insult him all day. thelma, it ain't no good insulting bookman if he can't hear you. bookman, when are you gonna clear the snow off the sidewalk? listen, i got a plan. i got something that will clean all the snow off and make the sidewalks as clean as a whistle. what's it called? august? no. you see, i put this sign out in the door entrance,
"lost on the front step -- 5-carat diamond ring." then watch the people start shoveling that snow. [ telephone rings ] answer the phone. i'll get it, miss evans. bookman! hello? yes, this is mrs. bookman. this is mrs. evans. good morning, mr. collingsworth. why, yes, of course. i'll be there in 15 minutes. mm-hmm. thelma, i won't eat breakfast. i'll get a cup of coffee down at the bus yard. mama, you're not gonna go to work today, are you? listen, half of the regular drivers are out with colds, so they want all the substitute drivers they can get. why don't you tell them you have a cold, too? now, you know i can't do that, thelma. the kids i drive to school need all the education they can get, and it's my job to get them there. mama, i heard on the radio that they might be closing the schools down.
whoo-wee! close the door. ooh, child, let me tell you something. when all our ancestors was down there in the hot, sunny southland lifting those barges and toting those bales, little did they know that 200 years later, some of their kinfolk would be freezing their ex-cotton-picking tails off in a project. and i said all that to say this, honey -- ooh, child, it's cold outside. hey, miss woods! oh, you're just the one i want to see. i got a bone to pick with you. i asked you to fix my thermostat, and you knocked it off the wall. of all the ham-handed, oatmeal-brained, fumble-fingered, stumble-footed goofballs i have ever known, you are the worst. you are a buffalo-butted, banjo-behind, reject of the school of losers. you are a disgrace to the human race
i have no idea why noah let you on and off, honey, because i don't know where they fit the elephant butt you got in there. sleigh bells ring you are so ridiculous. are you listening? get out of my face! i was just getting ready to insult him. oh, flo, penny is bent on going to school today. are you planning on driving the bus? sure. aren't you going to work? you know i got to go to the boutique, but i don't know who's gonna do any shopping. i don't know many eskimos with credit cards. [ laughs ] let's go. i feel like king tut in a sauna. ma, i wish you would change your mind. thelma, you know i'm not gonna let a little bit of snow scare me. it never did when you all were little, and it sure won't start now. yeah, i know those kids will appreciate it as much as we did.
have a nice day, y'all. hey, michael, thelma, did you hear that jive radio announcer in there? no, man, what'd he say? he said, [ deep voice ] hey, all you sleek and slicky music freaks, this is bad cat bill, your very own disco dude rapping to you. ha ha ha. man, it's so cold outside... how cold is it? man, it's so cold outside, even the flashers are just showing pictures of themselves. ha ha ha. and, man, the snow is getting he-ea-ea-vy. so just lay back in your sack, and if you want some real delicious fatback, save your mama for better things. call harry's pick-a-rib -- guaranteed not to leave a grease ring. your ma-a-a-ma will thank you. [ normal voice ] i was just trying to cheer you all up. yeah, well, it's not working 'cause i'm still worried about ma driving that bus in that snow. thelma, it's not that bad out there.
yeah, but it seems like there's something we can do. [ chuckles ] i was just thinking of that. but seeing that we're stuck with michael, i think we better do something that includes the three of us. [ clears throat ] well, how about charades? i'm sure glad you didn't say hide-and-go-seek 'cause knowing the two of y'all, you sure enough wouldn't come looking for me. come on. come on. hit me. alex, come on, give me a hand here. ew. everybody okay?
i guess so. this place is scary. we're gonna die of scariness! now, now, now. nobody's gonna die of anything. i guarantee you that. what if you die first? nothing scares me. i'm not scared of anything. not even tarantulas. what are they? i don't know. that's how come i'm not scared of them. i think they look like that bug on your shoe! [ screams ] [ laughs ] alex. gee, aunt florida, maybe we should have stayed on the bus. well, the heater had stopped working there, honey. if we'd have stayed there, we'd have all frozen. at least we got room to move around in here. we won't get drowsy and fall asleep. i'm cold. we're gonna die of coldness-ness!
how come nobody lives in them? well, it's an abandoned redevelopment project. i'm hungry! i want me a big mac! well, i think you're gonna have a little bit of a problem finding one in a neighborhood like this. i ain't never heard of no neighborhood where you couldn't walk to a big mac place. you can't walk anywhere. the snow's 4 feet tall. cool. we'll have them deliver. they can't do that. but i'm hungry! we're gonna die of hungriness! now, look, kids, just stop and think how lucky we are. we're inside, out of the storm. i bet they're searching for our bus right now, and they know we're somewhere nearby. we'll be home in no time flat. we didn't stay on the regular bus route. well, of course i did. oh, no, aunt florida.
that we were turning off the regular bus route because of the snow? [ sotto voice ] penny. oops. sorry. oh, we're gonna die of lostness-ness! [ crying ] stop it. they'll find us soon enough. hey, i know what we can do to keep warm. let's all do a little jogging. say what? jogging? what are you, some kind of health nut? maybe you'd like me to warm the seat of your pants, young man. that's what i said, miss evans. let's jog. all right. now, one, two, three.
