Heidi: Okay. What are the teams?
Sheila: Should we do family versus family?
Kenan: Oh, well, more importantly, what are the stakes?[Cut to Frank and Kate]
Frank: Okay, well, too low? 5,000?[Cut to everybody. Kate, Frank, Kyle and Heidi are sitting together as Barren family team. Chris, Paul, Sheila and Kenan are together as Johnson family team.]
Sheila: Okay. Alright, high stake charades. I like it. Alright, you guys go first.[Cut to Barren family]

Kyle: Three words.
Frank: It’s a movie.
Heidi: Second word.
Frank: Third word.
Heidi: Man. Running man!
Kyle: Yes![The Barren family are celebrating] [Cut to Johnson family]
Paul: Don’t get too excited. The Johnson family is pretty darn good at charades.
Kenan: Yeah, that’s right. Sheila, why don’t you kick us all, babe?
Sheila: Yeah. Watch how it’s done. [Sheila stands to give her team hints] Three words.
Kate: No talking.
Sheila: Oh, you see. I didn’t interrupt you sis. So, let me have my round.
Kate: Okay. The one rule is that–
Sheila: Shh! Shh! Shh! Shh! I’m opening this and I’m reading this coz..
Chris: A book!
Sheila: Yes! Yes! Okay. So, we’re gonna skip the first word coz it’s just ‘The’, okay? Alright. Second word. Not big, rhymes with skittle.
Sheila: Yes! Yes! That’s correct. That’s right! That’s right.[Cut to Barren family]
Heidi: What’s happening?
Kyle: I– I don’t know.[Cut to Johnson family]

Sheila: Okay! Okay! Third word. Purple rain, purple rain!
Paul: Prince! The little prince!
Sheila: Yeah![The Johnson family are celebrating]
Chris: Rolling baby!
Kenan: That’s my girl![Cut to Barren family]
Kate: There seems to be some confusion about the rules.
Frank: Yeah. Yeah. Maybe let’s just call that a practice round. There were some discrepancies in that round.[Cut to Johnson family]
Paul: Well, y’all was trolling us.
Sheila: Um-hmm. And those who kept talking.
Kenan: Yeah, no talking. This is charades.[Cut to Barren family become confused] [Cut to Johnson family]
Paul: That was practice. This is real. Okay?[Paul stands up to give his team hints]
Alright. Um, four words. And it’s a movie. And the first word’s just a number. So, just keep that in mind, okay?[Cut to the Barren family]
Kate: See, but you can’t do that though. You’re supposed to mime it. There’s no words.[Cut to everybody]
Paul: Oh, okay. Got it.[Paul shows his own face, then points at Frank]
Johnson family: 12 years of slave. Oh![Johnson family are celebrating] [Cut to Frank]
Frank: What about me made you think of 12 years of slave?[Cut to the Johnson family]
Kenan: I mean, come on![Cut to Barren family]
Heidi: No, you guys don’t get it. You have to mime everything. Like for that last round, you should have gone. [Heidi is giving an example]
Paul: Arsenio Hall![Cut to Heidi]
Heidi: No. I’m looking for a movie.[Cut to Johnson family]
Chris: A movie with Arsenio Hall. Oh! Come to America!
Kenan: Oh, man! We are like five to nothing![Cut to Barren family]
Kate: Okay. You’re also not allowed to point to anyone or anything in the room.[Cut to Johnson family]
Sheila: Okay, I have literally never heard that.[Cut to Barren family]
Kyle: These are standard rules. Go again. Try to follow them this time.[Cut to Johnson family. Kenan walking forward.]
Kenan: Hey, y’all starting to look like some sort of losers. But I’m happy to try it your way. Alright, here we go. [Kenan mimes just like Heidi before]
Sheila: It’s not Arsenio Hall but it’s a movie.
Kenan: Um-hmm.[Kenan starts giving hints. He acts like he’s laughing, crying and then using a calculator.]
Paul: Bad boys for life!
Chris: Oh! Looking like a blow out, baby![Cut to Barren family]
Heidi: How did they possibly get that?[Cut to Johnson family]
Sheila: Oh, girl, that was easy. He spelled it out. It was a movie that made you laugh, made you cry and afterwards made you google ‘When did Martin Lawrence get old as hell?[Cut to Barren family]
Kate: Okay, I guess that technically counts as a point.
Kyle: That’s not how you play charades! You have to go word by word like this, [miming] Bad! Boys! For! Life![Cut to Johnson family. They are all laughing out loud.]
Kenan: What the hell was that?
Chris: Nobody knows. Okay, my turn.[Chris stands up] [Cut to Barren family]
Frank: How come they just keep going?[Cut to Johnson family]
Chris: Aite, here we go.[Chris starts miming]
Sheila: A movie!
Paul: 14 words.
Chris: Yeah.[Cut to Heidi]
Heidi: 14 words? This one’s gonna take forever.[Cut to Johnson family]
Chris: No, it won’t. I’ll get in two seconds.[Chris starts miming]
Sheila: Oh, he’s making Marlon Wayans face. Oh!
Johnson family: Don’t Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood!
Chris: Ah![Cut to everybody]
Kenan: Yeah! Ah!
Chris: Now, that’s enough to get our $5,000.
Kenan: Yeah, and this is our house now, so you all can leave.
