Police Line Up II

…..Richard Pryor

[FADE IN on Richard Pryor in a police lineup and wearing his black robe, but he now has bandages on his face as well as his forehead. ZOOM out to show the entire lineup from left to right: a refrigerator, Pryor, a goose, and Jane Curtin dressed as a nun and staring icily at him.]

Policeman: All right, ma’am, now, is this the man who took your purse?

Woman: Uh, I’m not quite sure if it’s him. Uh, could you open the icebox?

[FADE to black.]
