[ open on a family’s front living room, everyone seated on opposite couches ]
Dad: Brian? Stacy? Your mother, Ellen, and I are so glad you decided to join us for this Family Communication session.
Stacy: So, what’s up? You guys getting divorced, or something?
Mom: No. We just wanted the family to talk as a group.
Brian: Okay. Well, let’s get it started.
Mom: Okay. Well, Stacy, Brian.. your father, Ted, and I are a little bit concerned. Cecilia, the cleaning lady, was in the family room, and she found a bag of pot.
Stacy: [ anxious ] She didn’t smoke it, did she?
Mom: No! She didn’t smoke it.
Dad: Now, we’re not here to “come down on you” I mean, that’s not what we’re about, okay?
Mom: We’re just concerned that pot could lead to other things.
Dad: Crack. Ice. Boom. Pow.
Mom: Well, we know you don’t want to hear this from us.
Dad: Sure! I mean we’re your parents! Who wants to hear this stuff from their parents, huh?
Mom: Your father and I came up with a brilliant idea to give you kids some direction – a motivational speaker.
Dad: Yeah. One of those guys who speaks to big groups at high schools and churches.
Stacy: You mean, to come to the house?
[ the kids get up to leave ]
Dad: Hey, come on, you guys. This set me back a few bucks. Okay, his name is Matt Foley. Now, he’s been down in the basement drinking coffee for about the last four hours, and he should be all ready to go. I’ll call him up. [ opens the basement door ] Matt, we’re ready for you! [ turns to the kids ] His speech is called “Go For It!” Now, he’s used to big groups, so make him feel like there’s a crowd here. [ calls down the basement again ] Matt! Come on up, buddy!
Matt Foley: [ runs up the stairs, bouncing back and forth as he talks ] Alright, how’s everybody? Good! Good! Good! Now, as your father probably told you, my name is Matt Foley, and I am a Motivational Speaker! Now, let’s get started by me giving you a little bit of a scenario of what my life is all about! First off, I am 35 years old.. I am divorced.. and I live in a van down by the river! Now, you kids are probably saying to yourself, “Now, I’m gonna go out, and I’m gonna get the world by the tail, and wrap it around and put it in my pocket!!” Well, I’m here to tell you that you’re probably gonna find out, as you go out there, that you’re not gonna amount to Jack Squat!!” You’re gonna end up eating a steady diet of government cheese, and living in a van down by the river! Now, young man, what do you want to do with your life?
Brian: [ nervous ] I.. actually, Matt.. I kinda wanna be a writer..
Matt Foley: We-e-e-elll.. la-de-freakin’-da! We’ve got ourselves a writer here! [ jumps across the room ] Hey, Dad, I can’t see real good.. [ lifts his glasses off and on his face ] ..is that Bill Shakespeare over there?
Dad: Well, actually, Matt.. Ellen and I have encouraged Brian in his writing.
Matt Foley: Dad, I wish you could just shut your big yapper! [ stumbles back across the room ] Now, I wonder.. Brian, from what I’ve heard, you’re using your paper, not for writing, but for rolling doobies!! You’re gonna be doing a lot of doobie-rolling when you’re living in a van down by the river! [ turns to Stacy ] Young lady, what do you want to do with your life?!
Stacy: [ sarcastic ] I want to live in a van down by the river.
Matt Foley: Well, you’ll have plenty of time to live in a van down by the river when you’re.. [ tries to be clever ] ..living in a van down by the river! Now, you kids are probably asking yourself, “Hey, Matt, how can we get back on the right track?!” Well, as I see it, there is only one solution! And that is for me to get my gear, move it on into here, ’cause I’m gonna bunk with you, buddy! We’re gonna be buddies! We’re gonna be pals! [ picks Brian up ] We’re gonna wrassle around! [ puts Brian down ] Ol’ Matt’s gonna be your shadow! [ motions] Here’s Matt, here’s you! There’s Matt, there’s you! [ trips and falls flat on the coffee table, sending it crashing to the floor ] Whoops-a-daisy! [ stands up ] We’re gonna have to clean that up later! Me and my buddies! My pals! My amigos! I’m gonna go get my gear! [ heads for the door ]
Brian: [ runs after Matt ] Wait, Matt! You don’t have to go!
Stacy: [ runs behind Brian ] Yeah, you don’t have to do that! We’ll never smoke pot again!
Dad: Uh, Matt, thanks for all you’ve done!
Matt Foley: I don’t give a rat’s behind, ’cause I’m moving in! I’m sick and tired of living in a van down by the river! [ as Matt steps outside to grab his gear, Dad quickly locks the front door ]

That’s like playing handball with a monkey – we’re notgoing to get in the court!
President Bill Clinton: Well, Bob, we’re anxious to workwith you.
Senator Bob Dole: Well, you’re not going to get anywhere by sending up a bill that has $3.50 of tax increases for every $1 of spending cuts.That’s not going to wash – you know it, I know it, the American people knowit!
Hillary Clinton: I don’t know where you get these figures, Bob.Honestly! [ laughs ]
Senator Bob Dole: Hillary, why don’t you give it a rest? Noone elected you to a damn thing! Now, last year you made fun of womenwho bake cookies. Well, let me tell you something – my wife, Elizabeth Dole,the best Secretary of Transportation this country ever had, she ran the busof this country for four years, and it ran on time! She’d come home everynight, and she still had time to bake me a batch of cookies! So, why don’tyou run along and whip up a batch of chocolate chip, oatmeal raisin, macaroon,marshmallow treats, or whatever you make, and keep your nose out of thingsyou know nothing about!
President Bill Clinton: Bob, there’s no reason to get personal.Please.
Hillary Clinton: Yeah! That would be so unlike you,Bob!
Senator Bob Dole: [ angry ] Alright, Hillary, one more word out ofyou, and you’re gonna be a stain on that back wall!
Hillary Clinton: Ooh! Ooh, big man! Threatenin a woman! That’s afair fight, Bob!
Senator Bob Dole: Sure, it’s fair! I’m a man, alright.. a one-armedman, a man who lost his arm in service to his country! And you’re a goodwoman with two good working arms, and that’s a fair fight. You know it, Iknow it, the American people know it!
Hillary Clinton: Alright. You’re on! Come on! [ slaps Bob’s arm ]
Senator Bob Dole: Oh? You want to go, do you? [ starts hittingHillary ]
b>President Bill Clinton: Come on, you two! Come on!
Senator Bob Dole: Now, you stay out of this, Bill. I’m doingsomething you should have done a long time ago!
President Bill Clinton: This isn’t gonna solve anything..
Senator Bob Dole: [ striking Hillary with his one good arm ] How’sthat Health Reform Plan coming along?
Hillary Clinton: [ caught off guard ] Well.. it’s difficult to say..
Senator Bob Dole: I thought so! You don’t have a clue,do you?!
President Bill Clinton: Can’t we just get along..? Please.
[ Hillary grabs Bob’s good arm and twists it behind his back ]
