(Title card)

Announcer: Time once again for “Black Talk”.

(cut to two black people having a conversation)

Host: I went down to Con Edison and I said “Hey, what’s goin’ on? I paid my bill.” Right? And she said to me “What you talking about? If you paid your bill, you wouldn’t have a problem.” Right? So I said “Hey yo bitch! I paid my bill and my lights is out. Right? What’s happening? My lights are my problem and I paid the damn bill.” You know? Then she said “Look I understand.” I said “Listen here, I’m going to come back tommorrow right and if my lights ain’t on tommorrow, I’m going to have to kick some butt down at Con Edison!”

Guest: Maybe that’s what they need.

Host: Yeah you know. You know what happened yesterday? C.J. came by my house, right? You know what happened when C.J. came by my house yesterday? I’m going to tell you…

(Title appears)
