>>JIMMI: Back in the day, to get on television, you just...it wasn't just anybody. You had to have some kind of talent.
Today anybody who thinks they see ghosts or loses a ton of weight can get on!
What ever happened to the days of Johnny Carson?
Johnny wouldn't have you on just because you flipped a house or wanted a makeover.
To get on Carson you had to do something substantial.
Like that old lady who collected all those potato chips that look like the faces of U.S. Presidents.
Substantial
>>ERIN: Iron Oar Incorporated, this is Ms. Blum speaking, how may I direct your call?
Booking Department, how may I help you?
>>ERIN: "Barry the Bear!" I got Jimmi back on TV, plus it's like my most favorite show of all time!
Three years straight when I was little! And recently, too.
Jimmi is going to love this!
>>JIMMI: No freakin' way.
>>ERIN: Jimmi, are you not hearing me?
Barry the Bear" is the biggest show in town! In the 1 to 3 year old demographic.
You gotta get the the kids!
>>JIMMI: They're not kids, Erin! What you're talking about are babies. They're much younger!
>>ERIN: Yes; yes they are - but what do babies have?
>>JIMMI: Poopy diapers?
>>ERIN: And parents. They have parents.
Millions of parents who watch "Barry the Bear" - see you - and then go buy your cd.
>>JIMMI: I don't have a cd.
>>ERIN: I'll look into that.
>>GRACE: There have always been a lot of bears. There's The Three Bears.

>>GRACE: It's a sweet show, Jimmi; you should do it.
>>JIMMI: You want me to go from "Newport Beach" to "Barry the Bear?"
That's like switching from single malt to Similac!
>>GRACE: It's for the children. It's making children happy.
There's no greater thing that you can do.
>>JIMMI: How 'bout playing The Grammys with Springsteen on guitar and McCartney on bass?
>>GRACE: So you'll do it then. Thank you, sweetheart.
Erin told me to tell you that there's one teensy-weensy little catch. They want you to change the lyrics.
>>JIMMI: Change my words?! - Because the man said so?! Oh man!
>>JIMMI: What can I tell you?
Wednesday is hump day. That's the line they want to change?
I'm not changing that for Barry or anybody.
>>GRACE: I don't know why he's making such a big deal about changing a word in the song.
I mean it is for "Barry."
>>JIMMI: You can't take the hump out of hump day!
I mean, what would I change it to anyway?
>>GRACE: "Wednesday is a fun day."
>>ERIN: I'm thinkin' "Wednesday is sun day." Nope? Okay.
>>LEO: How about "Wednesday is chump day"?
Because only a chump would compromise his art to appear on the small screen with some guy in a bear costume.
>>JIMMI: Hey, thanks guys, that's just great. Quick. Somebody call the show and tell them I'm on the way over!
>>GRACE: Smokey the Bear. Yogi Bear.
>>JIMMI: How come it's not Yogi the Bear or just Smokey Bear?
>>GRACE: That wonderful book, Little Bear.
>>JIMMI: How does The Bear Council decide who gets a the in their name and who doesn't?
>>GRACE: Oh, and of course, "Winnie the Pooh!"
>>ERIN: Jimmi, it's Winnie Poux!
>>JIMMI: What?
>>ERIN: Winnie Poux -- P-o-u-x -- She's the talent coordinator For "Barry the Bear."
>>JIMMI: Yes, Ms. Poux. Winnie. Oh yeah? Really? Really?
Yeah, that'd be great! Yes! Of course I'll change it!
>>JIMMI: Guys! Help me out here; it's almost showtime!
>>ERIN: Wednesday's a cool day.
>>JIMMI: No thank you.
>>GRACE: Wednesday's a nice day.
>>JIMMI: Not in this lifetime.
>>ERIN: Wednesday's a bear day?
>>JIMMI: Bear day? Wednesday is bear day? Are you insane?!
>>LEO: Oh! Thursday is hump day?
>>GRACE: You could say "Wednesday's a fine day."
>>ERIN: "Wednesday is bump day!" It rhymes! And a bump is just like a hump!
>>JIMMI: Bump! Yes! That's it! That's the one!
>>JIMMI: Erin! Erin! What the--! The door won't open!
