Police Lineup #3
Black Man…..Richard Pryor
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 hes been beaten up. The policemen all point at him while Pryor cups his hands in a pleading manner.]
Policeman: Okay, now, maam, which man is the one who allegedly robbed your liquor store?
Woman: Uh, thats him, the one with the mustache.
[The three policemen all touch their upper lips to make sure they dont have mustaches, then nod and point to Pryor again.]
Policeman: Okay, well take care of him, then.
[FADE to black.]
