why do i feel like i'm in the twilight zone? [ knock on door ] happy anniversary, you guys. awwww. thank you, bookman. your first anniversary. and everybody said you wouldn't make it. booger, you got about as much diplomacy as a rhino who can't find his water hole. hey, look, i went way out for that. i could eat for a whole week for what i spent for that gift. oh, you must have got us diamonds, bookman. well, thank you, bookman. we'll open it tomorrow, okay? hey, bookman, what time is it? 2:30. oh, i got to get out of here. i got an appointment downtown at 3:00. let me make tracks here. hey, hey, hey, dynoman, dynoman, sweetheart! haven't you forgotten something?

that's one wedding i'll never forget. boy, i walked in, and i saw a vision of loveliness in white. oh, bookman. sweet, delicate. thank you, bookman. it was the best sour-cream dip i ever had. but it was a fantastic wedding -- i know that. wasn't it beautiful? oh, yes, everybody looked so nice all dressed up like that. hey, yeah. look at bookman in that tuxedo. is that him? i thought it was a pregnant penguin. and there's j.j. adjusting one of the bridesmaid's garters. yeah, and look at her boyfriend re-adjusting j.j.'s face. hey, wait a minute. i don't remember that picture. that's keith, laying flat on the ground. turn the page. no, wait a minute. i remember. that's the shot that j.j. took and tripped you when you came down the aisle and busted your knee. thank you, bookman. don't mention it. sure was a rough way to start out a marriage.
no pro-football contract, no decent job. but did you complain? no. you dealt with it in your own quiet way. you hit the bottle. bookman! yes, we had our problems, but we worked them out together. now there's no need to look back. we'll just look forward to the future. it'll probably get worse. well, now we're on the brink of -- what happened here? goodness gracious. i've seen happier faces in a lobster tank. i don't know. i was trying to cheer them up. oh, well, bookman, let's get our rear in gear and get on out of here. come on, now. move on. mm-hmm. thelma, i got to go jogging. now, you don't want to come, do you? uh, i'll see you later. oh, i know why keith didn't want me to come. he's gonna get me a present.
hot stuff. [ chuckles ] come on and give me a hand. and miss all the action? no way. you better come on, jos\. [ laughs ] thelma, have i got a gift for you. i've got the gift for you, and i got to go first. let me go first. hold on. hold on. hold on. i'll go first. see, since this is your first wedding anniversary, which is your paper wedding anniversary, i will give you something commensurate with the occasion. and here it is. a newspaper? just what we needed if we were training a puppy. j.j., if you wanted to buy them a gift -- no, no, take it easy. take it easy. turn to the travel section. why is this ad circled -- "a trip to the bahamas"? that's right.
a trip to the bahamas from the millionaire. [ laughs ] hey, he's not kidding -- first-class tickets to the bahamas! i don't beli-- thanks a lot, j.j. think nothing of it. oh, j.j., i don't know what to say! oh, j.j., that's so generous, but, honey, where'd you get the money? well, folks, that is the real surprise. ladies and gentlemen, friends and family, peoples and peepettes... i'm glad y'all are gathered here for this news 'cause i want y'all to know that now you are looking at a famous working cartoon artiste. that's right. [ laughs ]
j.j., are you sure this time? positive. you sold dynoman? not exactly, willona. from this fertile imagination springs forth another character -- one more dynamic and flamboyant than dynoman. 'cause if you dug dynoman, you can definitely dig... dyno woman! oh, my goodness. that's thelma! um... j.j., after all these years, you have been calling me ugly. and you did not even tell me you were gonna put my face on your cartoon-strip character. now, i think that's pretty... pretty fantastic. j.j., i love you.
i love you, too, catfish face. oh, j.j. j.j., we always knew you'd make it. yeah, and i knew him when he was a nobody. [ laughs ] well, ma, now i'm moving up, and i'm moving out. i'm getting my own pad. but, j.j., why? well, there's three good reasons, ma -- joanne, judy, and boom-boom. okay, j.j., now for my anniversary gift. thelma, mama, now, you all have been probably wondering what i've been doing with my spare time, why i've been acting so strange. no. not at all. actually, i was in training. you joined the army? no, penny. in training with the chicago bears!
i know they said my knee was gone, that i was through, but, babe, i couldn't give up on you. i exercised. i never gave up. maybe they say miracles can never happen, but it did. the team doctor checked it out, and my leg's healed fine. oh, keith! keith, brother-in-law... this means you can play football again? maybe better than ever, michael. i signed on as a free agent -- $60,000 for the first year with an option for 3 more years. do you all know what this means? that means we can all have free season tickets to chicago bears games. i can see it now. 3-39, 3-39! hut, hut, hut! not "hut, hut." how about "house, house"? we're getting out of the ghetto. thelma, you know that duplex on the north side you and i looked at and dreamed of having someday?
oh, keith, thelma, i'm so happy for you! when do we move in, and what time do we eat? hey, let me congratulate you two. good luck. i'm so happy for you guys. baby, you haven't said anything. but, keith... thelma! keith, get her to the couch. hon, are you all right? yeah, i'm okay. [ laughs ] i'm fine. just got a little dizzy. here, lay down. i feel kind of embarrassed now. lay down, baby. i can understand. some people just react that way to big news. and that was big news, keith. it's the biggest news i've heard since saniflush. thelma, it's a great place and all, but i didn't think it would hit you that hard, even though i knew you wanted it that bad. well, i just hope it has an extra bedroom for the baby. are you kidding? it's got three bedrooms.
baby? a baby?! keith! a baby?! baby?! yes, keith, that was my gift to you. you're gonna be a daddy! oh, my baby girl. i'm so happy! oh, ma. i'm going to be a godmother. [ laughs ] and i'm gonna be a babysitter. hey, man, this means we gonna be uncles. yeah. if it's a girl, we can be aunts. i'm gonna be a grandmama! ohhhh! and i'm gonna be a grandbooger! i'm gonna have a baby! i'm gonna have a baby!
look here, keith, you may be a big-time running back, but i think you should let thelma make this carry. thelma, babe, this is the best news yet. you comfortable, huh? do you want a pillow? you hungry? you want something to eat? i do. thelma, why didn't you tell me? well, i thought i was pregnant about four days ago, but the doctor called and confirmed it just in time for our anniversary. ah. so that's why you were acting so strange. well, i'm gonna get to see you as often as i can. you won't have far to travel. you'll be living with us. oh, no. no, keith. no, no, no. i-i couldn't. ma, you have to! you have to, because this is my first baby! i don't know what to do! you take it easy. you just do what comes naturally. yeah, ma, but i'd feel so much better if you're there with me. i... [ crying ] to tell you the truth, baby, so would i.
thank you, ma. michael, you can come live with us. thanks, anyway, brother-in-law, but i'm getting tired of sleeping on couches. so i'm gonna stay at one of the dormitories at school. but i'll come by to visit. by the way, where is this place? baker street. baker street? that's where i'm moving. what address? 743. 743? i just took an apartment there this morning on the first floor. well, we're upstairs. florida! -- captions by vitac -- www.vitac.com
