Michael Che: Well, last time you were here, you had a little trouble.

Baskin Johns: Yes, [Cut to Baskin Johns] I forgot a lot of what the stuff we sell is and does. But this time I’ve done my homework.

Baskin Johns: Thank you for you curiosity, Michael. [Cut to Baskin Johns] Oshawaganda is the number one thing rated number one. You know what, I would love to tell you what ginger is instead.

[Cut to Michael Che and Baskin Johns]

Michael Che: No, just tell us about Oshawaganda.

Baskin Johns: Fine, Oshawaganda comes from Wakanda.

Michael Che: It comes from Wakanda like the made up country in ‘Black Panther’?

Baskin Johns: Yeah. Actually, [Cut to Baskin Johns] Gwyneth visited Wakanda and found lots of Oshawaganda growing on the set. And actually, I would love to tell you what ‘Black Panther’ is instead.

[Cut to Michael Che and Baskin Johns]

Michael Che: Are you having trouble against Baskin?

Baskin Johns: I already got one probation and I can’t get a another because second strike is Missouri.

Michael Che: Missouri?

Baskin Johns: Yes. [Cut to Baskin Johns] I have to go live in Missouri for a year, work at bath and body works and let my roots grow out. I can’t do it. Listen, my supervisor is here. Can I bring her out?

[Cut to Michael Che and Baskin Johns]

Michael Che: Sure.

Baskin Johns: Okay, Fifer. Fifer, can you come help me? [Fifer James joins] Fifer, I need your help because I’m really afraid that Gwyneth is going to fire me.

Fifer James: She doesn’t believe in firing, remember, it’s called conscious unemploying.

Baskin Johns: Right. Yes, that is what Queen Gwe says.

Fifer James: So, I’m just going to take it from here, Baskin. [Cut to Michael Che, Baskin Johns and Fifer James]

Okay, [Cut to Baskin Johns and Fifer James] we have a new Himalayan Salt scrub. It is the number one salt scrub. Rated number one in all over salt. I mean, actually, I’d like to tell what you salt is instead.
