[ open on park sidewalk, night, as two dealers hustle people as they walk by ]
Drug Dealer: -- I got hash. I got everything!
Baby Dealer: I got white babies! WHITE babies, people!
[ a passing couple stop, curious ]
Baby Dealer: Very white! Just came in today. Like a PEARL white!
Woman: Alan, this could be the answer to our prayers!
Man: Oh, I don't know. The Margulins got burned at this park, buying a white baby. It turned out to be a bowling pin.
Woman: Well, the Margulins are idiots! Let's at least take a look.
Man: Ah... you really want this baby, don't you?
Woman: Well -- either that, or a sofa bed.
[ the two salesmen overhear this ]
Drug Dealer: [ frustrated ] Sofa bed? Where'd you get babies?!
Baby Dealer: No, dude... just be cool.
[ the couple step forward ]
Man: Uh -- [ he clears his throat ] We're, uh, interested in the, um, white, um, baby.
Baby Dealer: Yeah, well, uh, how many you want?
Woman: Just one, I think.
Baby Dealer: Well... I can give you a price break if you buy two, plus I'll throw in some talcum powder!
Drug Dealer: [ interrupting ] Hey -- you gotta have cocaine! I got downers! I got --
Man: Uh, just -- may we ask, uh, who the actual parents are?
Baby Dealer: [ nervous ] Yeah... they, uh, was a young couple...
Woman: We just want one special baby. Can we see it?
Baby Dealer: Yeah, sure. Right in here. [ he lifts a garbage can lid and points inside ] Check him out.
Woman: [ looking in ] Ohhhh, he's beautiful!
Baby Dealer: Yeah, you ain't gonna find another one like him! He got all his SHOTS and everything!
Drug Dealer: [ interrupting ] How about a briefcase, man?! I got BRIEFCASES here!
Man: I'd still like to know who the actual parents are.
Baby Dealer: I TOLD you -- it was a young career couple, they got married into an adults-only co-op, and they had to get rid of the baby!
Woman: Honey, he's smiling at me! He likes us! Let's get him!
Man: Oh, I don't know... what are all those red splotches? He seems to have a rash.
Baby Dealer: ALL white babies got that!
Woman: [ pleadingly ] I like red splotches.
Drug Dealer: [ interrupting ] Say, wait a minute! How about some canned goods?! I got some chicken gumbo right there! Condensed, and everything! How about it, sir? Come on!
Baby Dealer: Hey, look, man -- can't you see I'm conducting business here?
Drug Dealer: Hey, don't give me no --
Man: Well, let's see... hold on...
Baby Dealer: How about I put your behind in this garbage can?!
Man: Uh... uh... let's see, you said, uh...
Baby Dealer: $500.
Man: Yes. Well, here you go. Right there. [ he hands over money ] $500.
Baby Dealer: Well... when I see the green, you can have the baby. There you go, take it!
[ the Woman picks up the baby and squeals with delight ]
[ a young woman walks into the park, and is quickly approached by the drug dealer ]
Drug Dealer: Smoke! Got some hash, got some downs, some produce!
[ she steps closer to the baby dealer and the couple ]
Mother: Excuse me? Has anyone here seen a, a baby boy? He-he has a red, splotchy face...?
[ the drug dealer tries to back off ]
Baby Dealer: Uh -- no. But if we see the baby, we'll tell you about it!
Mother: He was right next to me in the stroller! You know, I went to catch a stray frisbee, and then --
[ she spots the baby being held by the couple ]
Mother: That's my baby! Splotchy!
[ the woman pulls her new baby away ]
Woman: Not any more, it isn't! We just paid FIVE BIG ONES for it!
Mother: [ aghast ] Are you kidding?! SOLD for $500?! I paid $750 for him LAST WEEK! I have the receipt right here! Look at that!!
Man: Let me see that... [ he inspects the receipt ]
[ meanwhile, the dealers have casually exited the scene as the commotion escalates ]
[ camera pans upward into audience, zooms toward man with SUPER: "This Man Has A Lot Of Cole Slaw In His Underwear" ]
