Street Bum.....Horatio Sanz
[FADE IN on three guys in shirts and ties sitting on a sidewalk bench and eating their lunches.]
Seth Meyers: [points] Oh, my God. That guy over there totally looks like you, Will.
Will Forte: What? Where?
Seth Meyers: Over there on the bench.
[CUT to Will standing with one foot on a sidewalk bench. He is dressed exactly the same except for a fake mustache.]
Will Forte: THAT guy? No way, he doesn't look like me.
Seth Meyers: Doesn't that look like him?
Andy Samberg: He looks like you.
Seth Meyers: I mean, you have to imagine him without the mustache, but he's a dead ringer.
Will Forte: Okay, I guess so. That's pretty good. Okay, Seth, I'm gonna try to find you.
Seth Meyers: Good luck.
[Will peers at passersby.]
Will Forte: Boom. Right there. [points to left]
Seth Meyers: No, where?
Will Forte: Over there by the wall.
[CUT to Seth standing on the sidewalk and dressed exactly the same except for a top hat.]
Seth Meyers: [with his mouth full] Oh, c'mon, that guy looks nothing like me.
Will Forte: Oh, my God, Andy, doesn't that look like Seth?
Andy Samberg: It looks like you.
Seth Meyers: What? That guy's got a big top hat, he doesn't look anything like me.
Will Forte: Well, you gotta imagine him without the top hat. He's your doppelganger, man.
[Seth covers up the "lookalike's" top hat with two fingers.]
Seth Meyers: I guess, you know--yeah, I see it. All right, let's do Andy.
Will Forte: Okay.
[They all scan the streets for a long moment.]
Seth Meyers: [points] There he is.
Will Forte: [points] Wait, I got one too.
Seth Meyers: By the trash can?
Will Forte: Same one. Oh, my God, that is YOU, Andy.
[CUT to a street bum dressed in an green Army surplus jacket, bright red mittens, and jeans cut off at the calves.]
Andy Samberg: THAT guy?
Will Forte: Yeah, that guy.
Andy Samberg: He doesn't look anything like me.
Will Forte: What, he looks EXACTLY like you.
Seth Meyers: I mean, you gotta look past the gloves.
Andy Samberg: Hey, it's not the gloves. That guy's a LOSER.
Will Forte: Fine, who do YOU think he'd look like?
Andy Samberg: I don't know. [points to right] How about THAT guy?
[CUT to Andy standing against a wall and dressed exactly the same except for a bright green bandanna around his neck.]
Will Forte: Yeah, that guy does not look ANYTHING like you. He's wearing a green bandanna around his neck.
Seth Meyers: Yeah, I know--the first guy, that guy's your twin.
Andy Samberg: THAT guy.
[In disgust, Andy stands up and walks over next to the street bum.]
Andy Samberg: You think I look like THIS guy! [points at bum]
Will Forte: Well, not now, he's wearing those gloves.
Andy Samberg: Okay, fine!
[Andy pulls off the bum's gloves and throws them to the ground. The bum stands idly.]
Andy Samberg: How about now?
[Seth stands up and looks bewildered.]
Seth Meyers: Now I... now I can't tell 'em apart! Which one's Andy?
Andy Samberg: You gotta be KIDDING me!
[Will and Seth stare for a moment, and then Will aims a handgun at them.]
Will Forte: I don't know which one to shoot.
Andy Samberg: WHAT?! Why even shoot ANYONE?!
Seth Meyers: Wait. We can ask him something that only Andy knows! Andy, what do you think about sandwiches?
Andy Samberg: I--uh--I--I love them!
Seth Meyers: Andy does love sandwiches.
Will Forte: EVERYONE loves sandwiches!
Seth Meyers: You're right. Take the shot.
Andy Samberg: DON'T take the shot!!
Seth Meyers: TAKE THE SHOT!!!
[CUT abuptly to black as a gunshot rings out. CUT to Seth and Will back on the bench. The street bum sits between them in his green jacket and finishes Andy's lunch.]
Will Forte: [sheepishly] I shot the wrong guy.
Seth Meyers: Yeah.
[They sit motionless for a moment.]
Seth Meyers: Back to work?
Will Forte: Back to work. [to bum] Let's go, bozo.
[All three stand up at once and walk calmly away. FADE slowly to black.]
