  208.  
  209. 45
  210. 00:02:24,853 --> 00:02:26,396
  211. Okay, why are you

  213.  
  214. 46
  215. 00:02:26,479 --> 00:02:27,559
  216. I'd rather not get into it.
  217.  
  218. 47
  219. 00:02:27,647 --> 00:02:30,900
  220. Rather not get into it?
  221.  
  222. 48
  223. 00:02:30,984 --> 00:02:32,128
  224. Riley, what did you

  228. 00:02:32,152 --> 00:02:33,153
  229. I was mad.
  230.  
  231. 50
  232. 00:02:33,236 --> 00:02:34,529
  233. She gave me
  234. a purple nurple.
  235.  
  236. 51
  237. 00:02:34,654 --> 00:02:37,907
  238. - A what?
  239. - I twisted his nipple in anger.
  240.  
  241. 52
  242. 00:02:37,991 --> 00:02:40,535
  243. Riley, we do not touch other
  244. people's nipples in this house
  245.  
  246. 53
  247. 00:02:40,660 --> 00:02:43,288
  248. You know that. This is a nipple
  249. safe zone in this house.
  250.  
  251. 54
  252. 00:02:43,371 --> 00:02:46,040
  253. I was tired
  254. of watching black people
  255.  
  256. 55
  257. 00:02:46,166 --> 00:02:47,792

  262. 00:02:47,917 --> 00:02:50,545
  263. I understand that.
  264. Slavery was horrible.
  265.  
  266. 57
  267. 00:02:50,670 --> 00:02:51,921
  268. I mean,
  269. it was beyond horrible.
  270.  
  271. 58
  272. 00:02:52,005 --> 00:02:54,173
  273. They treated us
  274. like animals, Dad.
  275.  
  276. 59
  277. 00:02:54,257 --> 00:02:57,552
  278. - I'm aware of that.
  279. - They took our dignity.
  280.  
  281. 60
  282. 00:02:57,677 --> 00:03:00,054
  283. Oh, so now you're trying
  284. to take our popcorn, too?
  285.  
  286. 61
  287. 00:03:00,179 --> 00:03:01,806
  288. Riley, Riley, Riley!
  289.  
  290. 62
  291. 00:03:01,931 --> 00:03:05,435
  292. There's, like, a lot of racial
  293. tension in here right now.
  294.  
  295. 63
  296. 00:03:05,560 --> 00:03:07,437
  297. Are... are you talking
  298. about in this room?
  299.  
  300. 64
  301. 00:03:07,562 --> 00:03:08,789
  302. Are you talking
  303. about the country?
  304.  
  305. 65
  306. 00:03:08,813 --> 00:03:10,064
  307. - Both.
  308. - I'll tell you what.
  309.  
  310. 66
  311. 00:03:10,189 --> 00:03:11,941
  312. Can me and Riley
  313. talk in private?
  314.  
  315. 67
  316. 00:03:12,066 --> 00:03:13,943
  317. - Uh, Jebediah?
  318. - Jeremy.
  319.  
  320. 68
  321. 00:03:14,027 --> 00:03:16,571
  322. Right. Just go
  323. and make yourself at home.
  324.  
  325. 69
  326. 00:03:16,696 --> 00:03:18,698
  327. Come on, come on,
  328. let me talk to you.
  329.  
  330. 70
  331. 00:03:18,781 --> 00:03:21,075
  332. First of all, you don't twist
  333. white people's nipples.
  334.  
  335. 71
  336. 00:03:21,200 --> 00:03:22,761
  337. - That is a way to go to jail.
  338. - But I don't...
  339.  
  340. 72
  341. 00:03:22,785 --> 00:03:24,704
  342. Come on.
  343. All right.
  344.  
  345. 73
  346. 00:03:24,829 --> 00:03:27,457
  347. Riley, I want you
  348. to listen to your dad.
  349.  
  350. 74
  351. 00:03:27,582 --> 00:03:29,459
  352. I know you're upset, okay?
  353.  
  354. 75
  355. 00:03:29,542 --> 00:03:32,587
  356. I mean, I knew about slavery,
  357. but to see it?
  358.  
  359. 76
  360. 00:03:32,712 --> 00:03:35,715
  361. It's so horrible.
  362.  
  363. 77
  364. 00:03:35,840 --> 00:03:39,344
  365. And it's so embarrassing.
  366.  
  367. 78
  368. 00:03:39,427 --> 00:03:40,595
  369. Sweetie, I know that.
  370.  
  371. 79
  372. 00:03:40,720 --> 00:03:42,198
  373. I know how you feel,
  374. but you gotta understand
  375.  
  376. 80
  377. 00:03:42,222 --> 00:03:43,824
  378. that there's so much
  379. more to black history
  380.  
  381. 81
  382. 00:03:43,848 --> 00:03:45,475
  383. than people getting whipped.
  384.  
  385. 82
  386. 00:03:45,600 --> 00:03:47,602
  387. - Yeah?
  388. - Hell, yeah.
  389.  
  390. 83
  391. 00:03:47,727 --> 00:03:49,729
  392. Amazing, inspiring stories
  393. of black people
  394.  
  395. 84
  396. 00:03:49,854 --> 00:03:53,233
  397. who showed unbelievable courage,
  398. intelligence, and creativity
  399.  
  400. 85
  401. 00:03:53,358 --> 00:03:55,360
  402. in the face of all
  403. this horrible stuff.
  404.  
  405. 86
  406. 00:03:55,485 --> 00:03:59,113
  407. There's black heroes everywhere.
  408. Harriet Tubman, five foot even.
  409.  
  410. 87
  411. 00:03:59,239 --> 00:04:01,616
  412. Sammy Davis, Junior,
  413. five foot five.
  414.  
  415. 88
  416. 00:04:01,741 --> 00:04:03,618
  417. Prince, five foot two.
  418.  
  419. 89
  420. 00:04:03,743 --> 00:04:06,120
  421. Why do you keep mentioning
  422. their heights?
  423.  
  424. 90
  425. 00:04:06,246 --> 00:04:08,498
  426. No reason.
  427.  
  428. 91
  429. 00:04:08,623 --> 00:04:11,125
  430. The point is, is that
  431. for every Harriet Tubman
  432.  
  433. 92
  434. 00:04:11,251 --> 00:04:12,752
  435. there's dozens
  436. of unsung heroes
  437.  
  438. 93
  439. 00:04:12,877 --> 00:04:14,754
  440. who never get the credit
  441. they deserve.
  442.  
  443. 94
  444. 00:04:14,879 --> 00:04:17,632
  445. You know what?
  446. Here.
  447.  
  448. 95
  449. 00:04:17,715 --> 00:04:20,134
  450. Take a look at this.
  451.  
  452. 96
  453. 00:04:23,763 --> 00:04:26,432
  454. What are you doing?
  455. What are you doing?
  456.  
  457. 97
  458. 00:04:26,516 --> 00:04:27,934
  459. I think the battery's dead.
  460.  
  461. 98
  462. 00:04:28,059 --> 00:04:30,186
  463. There ain't no batteries.
  464. Gimme this... gimme this.
  465.  
  466. 99
  467. 00:04:30,270 --> 00:04:31,813

  474.  
  475. 101
  476. 00:04:35,275 --> 00:04:36,595
  477. See, he was a slave
  478. who escaped by

  480. 102
  481. 00:04:36,693 --> 00:04:39,445
  482. mailing himself
  483. to Philadelphia in a box.
  484.  
  485. 103
  486. 00:04:39,570 --> 00:04:41,072
  487. Look at this.
  488. Mm-hmm.
  489.  
  490. 104
  491. 00:04:41,155 --> 00:04:43,074

  2012. 428
  2013. 00:18:46,250 --> 00:18:47,668

  2030. over to the Union,

  2037. 433
  2038. 00:18:56,385 --> 00:18:59,805

  2713. 578

  2718. 579
  2719. 00:25:09,174 --> 00:25:10,675
  2720. He wasn't even famous
  2721. when he died.
  2722.  
  2723. 580
  2724. 00:25:10,759 --> 00:25:13,053

  2743. 584
  2744. 00:25:18,934 --> 00:25:22,562
  2745. Big deal. I got a high score

  2756. was loving my licks.
  2757.  
  2758. 587
  2759. 00:25:29,569 --> 00:25:32,072
  2760. Okay, well, while you were
  2761. just pretending to rock out,
  2762.  
  2763. 588
  2764. 00:25:32,197 --> 00:25:34,199
  2765. Robert Johnson
  2766. was doing it for real.
  2767.  
  2768. 589
  2769. 00:25:34,324 --> 00:25:36,952
  2770. He was the original
  2771. guitar god, do you hear me?
  2772.  
  2773. 590
  2774. 00:25:37,077 --> 00:25:40,080
  2775. Back in the '60s, his record
  2776. was studied by icons.
  2777.  
  2778. 591
  2779. 00:25:40,205 --> 00:25:43,833
  2780. I'm talkin' Jimi Hendrix,
  2781. Keith Richards, Jimmy Page.
  2782.  
  2783. 592
  2784. 00:25:43,917 --> 00:25:46,086
  2785. Eric Clapton
  2786. worshipped this man.
  2787.  
  2788. 593
  2789. 00:25:46,211 --> 00:25:48,838
  2790. - That fat kid from <i>South Park?</i>
  2791. - No!
  2792.  
  2793. 594
  2794. 00:25:48,964 --> 00:25:51,466
  2795. Robert Johnson was
  2796. a true rolling stone, honey.

  2871. 610
  2872. 00:26:35,260 --> 00:26:36,886

  2898. 616
  2899. 00:26:46,771 --> 00:26:48,148
  2900. Anything.

  2902. 617
  2903. 00:26:48,273 --> 00:26:52,277
  2904. Give me your soul

  2907. 618
  2908. 00:26:52,402 --> 00:26:53,778

  2911. 619
  2912. 00:26:58,241 --> 00:27:01,036
  2913. All right, let's get started.
  2914. Grab your guitar.

  2921. 621
  2922. 00:27:04,414 --> 00:27:06,541
  2923. - What do you mean?
  2924. - Huh?
  2925.  
  2926. 622
  2927. 00:27:06,624 --> 00:27:08,293
  2928. You're here
  2929. for the lesson, right?
  2930.  
  2931. 623
  2932. 00:27:08,418 --> 00:27:10,545
  2933. Uh, no.
  2934.  
  2935. 624
  2936. 00:27:10,670 --> 00:27:11,921
  2937. Oh, my bad.
  2938.  
  2939. 625
  2940. 00:27:12,005 --> 00:27:16,176
  2941. I thought you came here
  2942. because you saw my flyer.
  2943.  
  2944. 626
  2945. 00:27:18,553 --> 00:27:21,306
  2946. Oh, come on, man,
  2947. this ain't fair.
  2948.  
  2949. 627
  2950. 00:27:21,431 --> 00:27:23,308
  2951. We... we had a deal.
  2952.  
  2953. 628
  2954. 00:27:23,433 --> 00:27:25,935
  2955. Look, okay, if you take
  2956. my lessons
  2957.  
  2958. 629
  2959. 00:27:26,019 --> 00:27:29,564
  2960. and you put in the practice,
  2961. you will improve.
  2962.  
  2963. 630
  2964. 00:27:29,689 --> 00:27:34,194
  2965. Here, let me show you something
  2966. that will blow your mind.
  2967.  
  2968. 631
  2969. 00:27:41,451 --> 00:27:44,704
  2970. That could be you
  2971. in ten years.
  2972.  
  2973. 632
  2974. 00:27:44,829 --> 00:27:46,081
  2975. You know what?
  2976.  
  2977. 633
  2978. 00:27:46,206 --> 00:27:49,084
  2979. I think I'm just gonna
  2980. keep on teachin' myself.
  2981.  
  2982. 634
  2983. 00:27:58,343 --> 00:28:01,471
  2984. Um, okay,
  2985. how did you do that?
  2986.  
  2987. 635
  2988. 00:28:01,554 --> 00:28:03,973
  2989. Oh, that?
  2990. Oh, I can teach you that.
  2991.  
  2992. 636
  2993. 00:28:04,057 --> 00:28:05,725
  2994. But I'm gonna need
  2995. my soul back.
  2996.  
  2997. 637
  2998. 00:28:05,850 --> 00:28:07,227
  2999. Done deal.
  3000.  
  3001. 638
  3002. 00:28:07,352 --> 00:28:08,353
  3003. And 20 bucks.
  3004.  
  3005. 639
  3006. 00:28:08,478 --> 00:28:09,604
  3007. Can you break a 50?
  3008.  
  3009. 640
  3010. 00:28:09,729 --> 00:28:11,231
  3011. No.
  3012.  
  3013. 641
  3014. 00:28:11,356 --> 00:28:13,167
  3015. Now, this is the first chord
  3016. that I want to show you.
  3017.  
  3018. 642
  3019. 00:28:13,191 --> 00:28:14,734
  3020. It's a G7.
  3021.  
  3022. 643
  3023. 00:28:14,859 --> 00:28:16,986
  3024. Hear that?
  3025.  
  3026. 644
  3027. 00:28:17,112 --> 00:28:21,366
  3028. - Ah, we're making music.
  3029. - There you go, there you go.
  3030.  
  3031. 645
  3032. 00:28:21,491 --> 00:28:23,993
  3033. It's a little,
  3034. uh, major-ish for me.
  3035.  
  3036. 646
  3037. 00:28:24,119 --> 00:28:26,746
  3038. - Okay.
  3039. - You know any Sabbath songs?
  3040.  
  3041. 647
  3042. 00:28:26,871 --> 00:28:28,998
  3043. Sabbath like songs
  3044. you only play on Sunday?
  3045.  
  3046. 648
  3047. 00:28:29,082 --> 00:28:31,000
  3048. <i>Well, the one album
  3049. he made in Texas</i>
  3050.  
  3051. 649
  3052. 00:28:31,084 --> 00:28:33,878
  3053. in the late '30s didn't get
  3054. wide distribution at the time.
  3055.  
  3056. 650
  3057. 00:28:34,003 --> 00:28:36,756
  3058. But then it was reissued
  3059. in the blues revival
  3060.  
  3061. 651
  3062. 00:28:36,881 --> 00:28:39,759
  3063. of the early 1960s and it
  3064. blew everyone away, honey.
  3065.  
  3066. 652
  3067. 00:28:39,884 --> 00:28:41,136
  3068. What's an album?
  3069.  
  3070. 653
  3071. 00:28:41,219 --> 00:28:42,579
  3072. It's like a...
  3073. it's like a playlist
  3074.  
  3075. 654
  3076. 00:28:42,637 --> 00:28:44,139
  3077. that you can
  3078. hold in your hand.
  3079.  
  3080. 655
  3081. 00:28:44,264 --> 00:28:45,890
  3082. Whoa, trippy.
  3083.  
  3084. 656
  3085. 00:28:46,015 --> 00:28:47,642
  3086. It's made
  3087. out of melted wax.
  3088.  
  3089. 657
  3090. 00:28:47,767 --> 00:28:49,018
  3091. Ew.
  3092.  
  3093. 658
  3094. 00:28:49,144 --> 00:28:51,646
  3095. But, the moral of the story
  3096. is, Robert Johnson
  3097.  
  3098. 659
  3099. 00:28:51,730 --> 00:28:53,273
  3100. did not give the devil
  3101. a purple nurple.
  3102.  
  3103. 660
  3104. 00:28:53,398 --> 00:28:56,401
  3105. - So Jeremy's the devil?
  3106. - Exactly.
  3107.  
  3108. 661
  3109. 00:28:56,526 --> 00:28:57,962
  3110. Wait, wait a minute.
  3111. Wait, wait, wait.
  3112.  
  3113. 662
  3114. 00:28:57,986 --> 00:28:59,279
  3115. Who's Jeremy?
  3116.  
  3117. 663
  3118. 00:28:59,404 --> 00:29:01,156
  3119. Oh, you mean little Jericho
  3120. in the TV room?
  3121.  
  3122. 664
  3123. 00:29:01,281 --> 00:29:03,408
  3124. No, no, okay.
  3125. Let me clear this up.
  3126.  
  3127. 665
  3128. 00:29:03,533 --> 00:29:05,660
  3129. Not everyone with nipples
  3130. is the devil.
  3131.  
  3132. 666
  3133. 00:29:05,744 --> 00:29:06,744
  3134. What?
  3135.  
  3136. 667
  3137. 00:29:06,746 --> 00:29:08,163
  3138. Actually, I'm confused.
  3139.  
  3140. 668
  3141. 00:29:08,246 --> 00:29:09,686
  3142. Now I'm lost.
  3143. Wait a minute, hold on.
  3144.  
  3145. 669
  3146. 00:29:09,748 --> 00:29:11,166
  3147. Ah, no, I remember.
  3148.  
  3149. 670
  3150. 00:29:11,249 --> 00:29:13,169
  3151. I got it. Got it, got it,
  3152. got it. Got it. Listen.
  3153.  
  3154. 671
  3155. 00:29:13,293 --> 00:29:16,171
  3156. The point is, you should
  3157. feel pride in your heritage.
  3158.  
  3159. 672
  3160. 00:29:16,254 --> 00:29:17,672
  3161. Robert Johnson's
  3162. story proves
  3163.  
  3164. 673
  3165. 00:29:17,756 --> 00:29:19,299
  3166. that you can achieve
  3167. great things.
  3168.  
  3169. 674
  3170. 00:29:19,382 --> 00:29:22,177
  3171. Yeah, and no one would know
  3172. until after I'm dead.
  3173.  
  3174. 675
  3175. 00:29:22,260 --> 00:29:24,429
  3176. Robert Johnson
  3177. and all these other black heroes
  3178.  
  3179. 676
  3180. 00:29:24,512 --> 00:29:26,931
  3181. came from nothing,
  3182. yet they achieved greatness.
  3183.  
  3184. 677
  3185. 00:29:27,056 --> 00:29:28,308
  3186. And you can, too.
  3187.  
  3188. 678
  3189. 00:29:28,433 --> 00:29:30,560
  3190. By being born
  3191. a musical genius?
  3192.  
  3193. 679
  3194. 00:29:30,643 --> 00:29:32,187
  3195. No, no, no, no.
  3196.  
  3197. 680
  3198. 00:29:32,312 --> 00:29:34,439
  3199. By working hard and not
  3200. taking "no" for an answer.
  3201.  
  3202. 681
  3203. 00:29:34,564 --> 00:29:36,441
  3204. - Yuck.
  3205. - Like Mae Jemison,
  3206.  
  3207. 682
  3208. 00:29:36,566 --> 00:29:38,943
  3209. the first black woman
  3210. astronaut.

  3258. 693

  3260. <i>and girls would stare
  3261. towards setting the table.</i>
  3262.  
  3263. 694
  3264. 00:30:05,053 --> 00:30:07,972
  3265. Do you know why I kept you
  3266. after class today?
  3267.  
  3268. 695
  3269. 00:30:08,097 --> 00:30:10,225
  3270. Because I found this
  3271. in your cubby.
  3272.  
  3273. 696
  3274. 00:30:10,308 --> 00:30:13,478
  3275. My microscope!
  3276. I was looking for that, thanks.
  3277.  
  3278. 697
  3279. 00:30:15,063 --> 00:30:17,982
  3280. Is this a shakedown?
  3281.  
  3282. 698
  3283. 00:30:18,066 --> 00:30:19,734
  3284. This isn't about money.
  3285.  
  3286. 699
  3287. 00:30:19,818 --> 00:30:22,737
  3288. I know science seems groovy
  3289. and far out,
  3290.  
  3291. 700
  3292. 00:30:22,862 --> 00:30:25,865
  3293. but it's a dangerous
  3294. gateway subject.
  3295.  
  3296. 701
  3297. 00:30:25,949 --> 00:30:28,368
  3298. Sure, experimenting
  3299. with baking soda volcanoes
  3300.  
  3301. 702
  3302. 00:30:28,493 --> 00:30:29,869
  3303. might seem harmless at first,
  3304.  
  3305. 703
  3306. 00:30:29,994 --> 00:30:32,247
  3307. but before you know it,
  3308. you're floating in outer space
  3309.  
  3310. 704
  3311. 00:30:32,330 --> 00:30:35,500
  3312. without so much as a kitchen
  3313. to bake pies for your man.
  3314.  
  3315. 705
  3316. 00:30:37,377 --> 00:30:40,755
  3317. And a man without pie
  3318. is a grumpy man.
  3319.  
  3320. 706
  3321. 00:30:40,839 --> 00:30:43,383
  3322. Going to outer space
  3323. sounds awesome.
  3324.  
  3325. 707
  3326. 00:30:43,508 --> 00:30:45,260
  3327. I'd love to do that someday.
  3328.  
  3329. 708
  3330. 00:30:45,385 --> 00:30:46,886
  3331. No, you wouldn't.
  3332.  
  3333. 709
  3334. 00:30:46,970 --> 00:30:48,763
  3335. That's just
  3336. your lady brain
  3337.  
  3338. 710
  3339. 00:30:48,847 --> 00:30:50,515
  3340. tricking you
  3341. into thinking that.
  3342.  
  3343. 711
  3344. 00:30:50,640 --> 00:30:52,767
  3345. Never trust your own brain.
  3346.  
  3347. 712
  3348. 00:30:52,851 --> 00:30:54,394
  3349. I sure don't.
  3350.  
  3351. 713
  3352. 00:30:54,477 --> 00:30:57,146
  3353. Ah, stop telling me
  3354. I can be a graphic designer
  3355.  
  3356. 714
  3357. 00:30:57,272 --> 00:30:59,023
  3358. if I apply myself.
  3359.  
  3360. 715
  3361. 00:30:59,107 --> 00:31:00,525
  3362. And stop asking
  3363. for equal pay.
  3364.  
  3365. 716
  3366. 00:31:00,650 --> 00:31:05,280
  3367. Oh, just hang in there until the
  3368. four o'clock Valium, Cheryl.
  3369.  
  3370. 717
  3371. 00:31:05,363 --> 00:31:06,781
  3372. Oh. Uh...
  3373.  
  3374. 718
  3375. 00:31:06,865 --> 00:31:10,410
  3376. Wait, where'd...
  3377. where'd you go?
  3378.

  3496. 743
  3497. 00:32:24,817 --> 00:32:26,110

  3501. 744
  3502. 00:32:26,235 --> 00:32:27,463

  3506. 745
  3507. 00:32:27,487 --> 00:32:28,613

  3521. 748
  3522. 00:32:35,119 --> 00:32:37,121
  3523. And it only took an hour
  3524. of historical reenactments
  3525.  
  3526. 749
  3527. 00:32:37,205 --> 00:32:38,498
  3528. to get you to do it.
  3529.  
  3530. 750
  3531. 00:32:38,623 --> 00:32:39,999
  3532. Go, come on.
  3533.  
  3534. 751
  3535. 00:32:40,124 --> 00:32:41,876
  3536. Go. Go, go, go, go, go.
  3537.  
  3538. 752
  3539. 00:32:42,001 --> 00:32:44,253
  3540. Go, go, go.
  3541.  
  3542. 753
  3543. 00:32:48,758 --> 00:32:49,884
  3544. Oh, my God.
  3545. Are you okay?
  3546.  
  3547. 754
  3548. 00:32:50,009 --> 00:32:53,763
  3549. Oh.
  3550.  
  3551. 755
  3552. 00:32:53,846 --> 00:32:55,390
  3553. Did John-Jerry hurt you?
  3554.  
  3555. 756
  3556. 00:32:55,515 --> 00:32:57,517
  3557. Huh?
  3558.  
  3559. 757
  3560. 00:32:57,600 --> 00:32:59,644
  3561. I'm sorry I gave you
  3562. a purple nurple, Jeremy.
  3563.  
  3564. 758
  3565. 00:32:59,769 --> 00:33:01,771
  3566. You ate the whole bag
  3567. of chips?
  3568.  
  3569. 759
  3570. 00:33:01,854 --> 00:33:03,147
  3571. I understand.
  3572.  
  3573. 760
  3574. 00:33:03,231 --> 00:33:05,209
  3575. It would've been impractical
  3576. to give purple nurples
  3577.  
  3578. 761
  3579. 00:33:05,233 --> 00:33:07,652
  3580. to everyone throughout
  3581. history who deserved one.
  3582.  
  3583. 762
  3584. 00:33:07,777 --> 00:33:09,028
  3585. Got that.
  3586. I got that.
  3587.  
  3588. 763
  3589. 00:33:09,112 --> 00:33:11,030
  3590. But my question to you is,
  3591. did you eat it?
  3592.  
  3593. 764
  3594. 00:33:11,155 --> 00:33:14,158
  3595. There's nothing left
  3596. but chip dust in here.
  3597.  
  3598. 765
  3599. 00:33:14,283 --> 00:33:16,160
  3600. I-I was mad.
  3601. But I see I have
  3602.  
  3603. 766
  3604. 00:33:16,285 --> 00:33:17,620
  3605. so much
  3606. to be proud of.
  3607.  
  3608. 767
  3609. 00:33:20,873 --> 00:33:24,168
  3610. Hey, hey.
  3611. These had ridges.
  3612.  
  3613. 768
  3614. 00:33:24,293 --> 00:33:26,170
  3615. Dust does not have ridges.
  3616.  
  3617. 769
  3618. 00:33:26,254 --> 00:33:27,574
  3619. Do you understand
  3620. what I'm saying?
  3621.  
  3622. 770
  3623. 00:33:27,672 --> 00:33:29,674
  3624. I learned a lot
  3625. while I was spying on you guys.
  3626.  
  3627. 771
  3628. 00:33:29,799 --> 00:33:32,051
  3629. Black people have done
  3630. so many amazing things.
  3631.  
  3632. 772
  3633. 00:33:32,176 --> 00:33:34,929
  3634. Yeah, and you just ate
  3635. a family-sized bag of 'em.
  3636.  
  3637. 773
  3638. 00:33:35,013 --> 00:33:36,180
  3639. That's right, honey.
  3640.  
  3641. 774
  3642. 00:33:36,305 --> 00:33:38,933
  3643. Potato chips were invented
  3644. by a black man.
  3645.  
  3646. 775
  3647. 00:33:39,058 --> 00:33:41,436
  3648. A black man
  3649. named George Speck.
  3650.  
  3651. 776
  3652. 00:33:41,561 --> 00:33:43,438
  3653. Which is unfortunate,
  3654. because it reminds me
  3655.  
  3656. 777
  3657. 00:33:43,521 --> 00:33:45,815
  3658. of what you left me
  3659. with... a speck!
  3660.  
  3661. 778
  3662. 00:33:45,940 --> 00:33:47,567
  3663. A speck of potato chips!
  3664.  
  3665. 779
  3666. 00:33:47,692 --> 00:33:50,194
  3667. So, are we gonna see
  3668. a comedic reenactment
  3669.  
  3670. 780
  3671. 00:33:50,319 --> 00:33:52,447
  3672. of George Speck creating
  3673. the potato chip now?
  3674.  
  3675. 781
  3676. 00:33:52,572 --> 00:33:54,824
  3677. No.
  3678. No, we are not.
  3679.  
  3680. 782
  3681. 00:33:54,949 --> 00:33:56,951
  3682. We are gonna do it
  3683. as a puppet show.
  3684.  
  3685. 783
  3686. 00:33:57,035 --> 00:33:59,078
  3687. Now, we got budget cuts.
  3688. Go sit down.
  3689.  
  3690. 784
  3691. 00:33:59,203 --> 00:34:00,705
  3692. Now!
  3693.  
  3694. 785
  3695. 00:34:04,042 --> 00:34:05,585
  3696. George Speck was born in 1824
  3697.  
  3698. 786
  3699. 00:34:05,668 --> 00:34:08,963
  3700. in the Adirondack Mountains
  3701. in upstate New York.
  3702.  
  3703. 787
  3704. 00:34:09,047 --> 00:34:12,467
  3705. George was part Mohawk
  3706. Indian and he loved to hunt.
  3707.  
  3708. 788
  3709. 00:34:12,550 --> 00:34:14,844
  3710. He also loved to cook
  3711. what he hunted.

  3818. 812
  3819. 00:35:06,104 --> 00:35:07,105
  3820. and it stuck.
  3821.

  3824. Later, he opened

  3832. 815
  3833. 00:35:11,109 --> 00:35:12,610

  3855. 820
  3856. 00:35:23,454 --> 00:35:26,249

  3858. but I left the raisins.
  3859.  
  3860. 821
  3861. 00:35:26,374 --> 00:35:29,252

  3902.  
  3903. 831
  3904. 00:35:44,475 --> 00:35:47,270
  3905. He's not the undisputed greatest
  3906. black athlete of all time.
  3907.  
  3908. 832
  3909. 00:35:47,395 --> 00:35:49,206

  3913. 833
  3914. 00:35:49,230 --> 00:35:52,400
  3915. Okay, he could turn
  3916. a bucket of water into confetti.
  3917.  
  3918. 834
  3919. 00:35:52,483 --> 00:35:53,961
  3920. Michael Jordan couldn't
  3921. even do that, brother.
  3922.  
  3923. 835
  3924. 00:35:53,985 --> 00:35:56,529
  3925. The Harlem Globetrotters
  3926. do not play real games, Rel.
  3927.  
  3928. 836
  3929. 00:35:56,654 --> 00:35:59,157
  3930. All I know is,
  3931. is that confetti is real, man.
  3932.  
  3933. 837
  3934. 00:35:59,282 --> 00:36:00,282

  3938. 838
  3939. 00:36:00,284 --> 00:36:01,343

  3959. 00:36:05,496 --> 00:36:07,915
  3960. Honey, I understand that.
  3961. But this is different.

  3968. 844
  3969. 00:36:09,750 --> 00:36:11,270
  3970. I'm not gonna sit up here
  3971. and act like I don't.

  3973. 845
  3974. 00:36:11,294 --> 00:36:12,670
  3975. What I'm saying is that
  3976.  
  3977. 846
  3978. 00:36:12,795 --> 00:36:14,648
  3979. the man wasn't even
  3980. the greatest Globetrotter, Rel!
  3981.  
  3982. 847
  3983. 00:36:14,672 --> 00:36:16,424
  3984. So, we gotta go
  3985. through this again, huh?
  3986.  
  3987. 848
  3988. 00:36:16,549 --> 00:36:18,527
  3989. - We... I don't wanna go...
  3990. - Curly was the sidekick.
  3991.  
  3992. 849
  3993. 00:36:18,551 --> 00:36:20,071
  3994. - Here we go.
  3995. - He was the scrappy dude
  3996.

  3998. 00:36:20,178 --> 00:36:21,488
  3999. - of the Globetrotters.
  4000. - You want to talk about

  4004. greatest black athletes
  4005. of all time?
  4006.  
  4007. 852
  4008. 00:36:23,306 --> 00:36:25,183
  4009. All right, then why not
  4010. talk about Jordan?
  4011.  
  4012. 853
  4013. 00:36:25,308 --> 00:36:27,185
  4014. Why not talk about Ali?
  4015. Joe Louis?
  4016.  
  4017. 854
  4018. 00:36:27,310 --> 00:36:29,812
  4019. Well, I never saw Joe Louis
  4020. do magic before.
  4021.  
  4022. 855
  4023. 00:36:29,937 --> 00:36:31,063
  4024. Oh, God.
  4025.  
  4026. 856
  4027. 00:36:31,189 --> 00:36:32,291
  4028. Have you ever seen
  4029. Joe Louis do magic?
  4030.  
  4031. 857
  4032. 00:36:32,315 --> 00:36:34,442
  4033. Okay.
  4034.  
  4035. 858
  4036. 00:36:34,525 --> 00:36:36,068
  4037. In the 1930s, Joe Louis
  4038. pulled off
  4039.  
  4040. 859
  4041. 00:36:36,194 --> 00:36:37,820

  5537. Listen, Viv, I know
  5538. you're disappointed
  5539.  
  5540. 1176
  5541. 00:49:51,321 --> 00:49:53,115
  5542. you still can't afford
  5543. medical school,

  5545. 1177
  5546. 00:49:53,240 --> 00:49:55,117
  5547. but what does "doctor"
  5548. mean, anyway?
  5549.  
  5550. 1178
  5551. 00:49:55,242 --> 00:49:56,743
  5552. It's just a title.
  5553. The point is,
  5554.  
  5555. 1179
  5556. 00:49:56,868 --> 00:49:59,996
  5557. you're gonna be respected
  5558. for your work right here.
  5559.  
  5560. 1180
  5561. 00:50:01,623 --> 00:50:04,751
  5562. Oh, oh, somebody get a doctor!
  5563.  
  5564. 1181
  5565. 00:50:04,835 --> 00:50:06,503
  5566. Can I help?
  5567.  
  5568. 1182
  5569. 00:50:06,628 --> 00:50:09,005
  5570. Yes. Get a mop.

  5572. 1183
  5573. 00:50:09,131 --> 00:50:11,258

  5576. 1184
  5577. 00:50:11,383 --> 00:50:14,261
  5578. Oh. And put those back
  5579. where you found them.
  5580.  
  5581. 1185
  5582. 00:50:14,344 --> 00:50:15,863
  5583. I don't know where you
  5584. picked those up,
  5585.  
  5586. 1186
  5587. 00:50:15,887 --> 00:50:17,639
  5588. but that is not for you.

  5670. 1204
  5671. 00:51:01,433 --> 00:51:05,812
  5672. Yeah. Now, um,
  5673. once we pass the vena cava
  5674.  
  5675. 1205
  5676. 00:51:05,937 --> 00:51:08,815

  5680. 1206
  5681. 00:51:08,940 --> 00:51:10,817

  5689. 1208
  5690. 00:51:14,070 --> 00:51:15,447
  5691. Subclavian artery.

  5693. 1209
  5694. 00:51:15,572 --> 00:51:18,700

  5697. 1210
  5698. 00:51:18,825 --> 00:51:20,577

  5701. 1211
  5702. 00:51:20,702 --> 00:51:22,829

  5721. 1215
  5722. 00:51:27,459 --> 00:51:29,461
  5723. Okay, all right.
  5724.  
  5725. 1216
  5726. 00:51:29,586 --> 00:51:31,087
  5727. Doctor, your hands.
  5728.  
  5729. 1217
  5730. 00:51:31,213 --> 00:51:33,089
  5731. - What?
  5732. - Your gloves have fallen off.
  5733.  
  5734. 1218
  5735. 00:51:33,173 --> 00:51:34,400
  5736. - Oh, uh...
  5737. - Let me get you some new ones.
  5738.  
  5739. 1219
  5740. 00:51:34,424 --> 00:51:35,842
  5741. Oh, of course, yeah.
  5742.  
  5743. 1220
  5744. 00:51:35,967 --> 00:51:37,969
  5745. I'll just put that in my mouth.
  5746. There we go.
  5747.  
  5748. 1221
  5749. 00:51:40,222 --> 00:51:43,475
  5750. Just one little pause
  5751. for a second.
  5752.  
  5753. 1222
  5754. 00:51:43,600 --> 00:51:46,102
  5755. They're awfully hard
  5756. to get on.
  5757.  
  5758. 1223
  5759. 00:51:46,186 --> 00:51:48,480
  5760. Oh, boy, those babies
  5761. are tight.
  5762.  
  5763. 1224
  5764. 00:51:48,605 --> 00:51:50,106
  5765. Oh, that's
  5766. much, much better.
  5767.  
  5768. 1225
  5769. 00:51:50,190 --> 00:51:52,984
  5770. Whew. Now, let's get
  5771. to some cutting.
  5772.  
  5773. 1226
  5774. 00:51:53,109 --> 00:51:56,613
  5775. Okay, here we go.
  5776. And, diving in.
  5777.  
  5778. 1227
  5779. 00:51:56,738 --> 00:51:58,365
  5780. Now, that's the ticket.
  5781.  
  5782. 1228
  5783. 00:51:58,490 --> 00:52:00,867
  5784. No, no, please, please.
  5785.  
  5786. 1229
  5787. 00:52:00,951 --> 00:52:03,119
  5788. Hold your applause,
  5789. hold your applause.
  5790.  
  5791. 1230
  5792. 00:52:03,245 --> 00:52:05,121
  5793. No, you're right,
  5794. because this is
  5795.  
  5796. 1231
  5797. 00:52:05,247 --> 00:52:07,999
  5798. some fine work
  5799. my hands are doing.
  5800.  
  5801. 1232
  5802. 00:52:08,083 --> 00:52:11,002
  5803. Oh, beautiful.
  5804. Ew, gross me out.
  5805.  
  5806. 1233
  5807. 00:52:11,127 --> 00:52:15,632
  5808. I'm crossing
  5809. the finish line and, voila.
  5810.  
  5811. 1234
  5812. 00:52:15,757 --> 00:52:17,884
  5813. I did it.
  5814.  
  5815. 1235
  5816. 00:52:17,968 --> 00:52:19,511
  5817. Yes, thank you very much.
  5818.  
  5819. 1236
  5820. 00:52:19,636 --> 00:52:22,639
  5821. And... and to celebrate,
  5822. I'd like to have you all over
  5823.  
  5824. 1237
  5825. 00:52:22,764 --> 00:52:25,642
  5826. for a cocktail party in my
  5827. beautiful home tonight.
  5828.  
  5829. 1238
  5830. 00:52:25,767 --> 00:52:27,394
  5831. Will there be shrimp?
  5832.  
  5833. 1239
  5834. 00:52:27,519 --> 00:52:31,147
  5835. Oh, boy, that's...
  5836. that's a quick recovery.
  5837.  
  5838. 1240
  5839. 00:52:31,231 --> 00:52:33,024
  5840. How are you?
  5841. Very... very good.
  5842.  
  5843. 1241
  5844. 00:52:33,149 --> 00:52:35,527
  5845. Thank you very much.
  5846. This... oh, thank...

  5856. Nicely done.

  5885. Viv Thomas,
  5886. you have a surgical gift.
  5887.  
  5888. 1250
  5889. 00:52:54,170 --> 00:52:55,797
  5890. Your sutures
  5891. are God's own work.
  5892.  
  5893. 1251
  5894. 00:52:55,881 --> 00:52:58,550
  5895. You could stitch up a wound
  5896. before the blood hits the floor,
  5897.  
  5898. 1252
  5899. 00:52:58,675 --> 00:52:59,926
  5900. but even more importantly,
  5901.  
  5902. 1253
  5903. 00:53:00,051 --> 00:53:02,554
  5904. you make

  5907. 1254
  5908. 00:53:02,637 --> 00:53:06,182
  5909. Somebody said "daiquiri."

  5911. 1255
  5912. 00:53:06,308 --> 00:53:09,436

  5914. You're too kind.

  5916. 1256
  5917. 00:53:09,519 --> 00:53:11,938
  5918. The key is a small incision
  5919.  
  5920. 1257
  5921. 00:53:12,063 --> 00:53:13,165

  5945. You know, Viv,
  5946. I just hate the fact
  5947.  
  5948. 1263
  5949. 00:53:25,201 --> 00:53:26,804
  5950. that I make so much
  5951. more money than you do.
  5952.  
  5953. 1264
  5954. 00:53:26,828 --> 00:53:30,081
  5955. But here's the good news.
  5956. My gutters are filthy.

  5958. 1265
  5959. 00:53:30,165 --> 00:53:31,458

  5966. and cleaned them out.

  5968. 1267
  5969. 00:53:32,709 --> 00:53:34,210
  5970. I think maybe a rat

  5972. 1268
  5973. 00:53:34,336 --> 00:53:36,212
  5974. mighta croaked up there
