Policemen.....John Belushi, Tom Schiller, Chevy Chase

[FADE IN on John Belushi, Tom Schiller, and Chevy Chase all dressed as policemen and leading Richard Pryor into the lineup in his black robe. He has a huge bandage on his forehead, and he looks like he’s been beaten up. The policemen all point at him while Pryor cups his hands in a pleading manner.]

Policeman: Okay, now, ma’am, which man is the one who allegedly robbed your liquor store?

Woman: Uh, that’s him, the one with the mustache.

[The three policemen all touch their upper lips to make sure they don’t have mustaches, then nod and point to Pryor again.]

Policeman: Okay, we’ll take care of him, then.

[FADE to black.]
