14x07 - The Gang Solves Global Warming

RADIO DJ: 101.

3 WNFY weather report.

It's a scorcher out there, already 102 degrees.

Residents are being asked to keep their thermostats at 76 degrees to conserve energy.

Ah, man, global warming.

It's out of control.

Yeah.

It's hot, baby.

Guys, we don't really have to worry about global warming, because yes, is the Earth getting unbearably hot?

Of course it is.

But it's all a part of God's plan.

Look, if God wants to roast us like turkeys, there's got to be a good reason for it.

That's easy for you to say; you're young.

You know who's gonna get hurt the worst?

- Old people.

- Old people?

- Yeah.

- No, it's the younger generation that's gonna suffer - from global warming the most.

- DENNIS: Whoa-whoa-whoa, hey.

Listen, there's no reason to fight, okay?

We're actually living at a very exciting time right now.

I mean, we're all finally in agreement that climate change is real.

Well, yes, the 25 years of climate science finally caught up with my opinions, and, Dennis, when opinions meet facts, that's when you get truth.

- Oh, God.

- DEE: Wow.

Yeah, yeah.

But the good news is, hey, for the first time I can remember, we all have the same truth.

- Yeah.

Yeah.

- DENNIS: Yeah.

- That's nice, right?

Yeah.

- How 'bout that?

And, look, while some people are saying, "Look, we're staring down the barrel of a global catastrophe here," that is true, but I think if we all work together, we can solve this problem.

- Guys, we can beat the heat.

- ["THE HEAT IS ON" BY GLENN FREY PLAYING]

Oh!

Hey!

- DENNIS: Hey-hey-hey-hey-hey!

- The heat is on On the street - To stay alive - 'Cause the heat is on Whoo!

Oh-whoa-ho, oh-whoa-ho Tell me can you feel it, tell me can you feel it Tell me can you feel it The heat is on.

- - Hot town, summer in the city Back of my neck getting dirt and gritty DENNIS: Guys?

Feeling that?

Nice and cool, huh?

Turned the AC way down.

Yeah, I don't know why we're wasting our AC on strangers.

No, Frank, we're not wasting it.

No-no-no-no.

We're adapting to climate change.

People are animals.

When push comes to shove, - there's no "together.

" - No-no-no, see, listen.

By-by-by cranking the AC down below the recommended, uh, settings, and getting the word out that Paddy's has the best AC in town, we're actually helping our business and helping the environment.

No, that doesn't work.

Shame's better.

Like I do with my shoes, you know what I mean?

How would I know what you mean?

My shoes that are made out of recyclable materials.

I did a whole Instagram Story about it.

Talking about how great the shoes are, making people feel stupid for not having them.

You know, you remember.

Who the f*ck do you think is watching your What?!

- Not-not one person on Earth is - Get out of here.

What are you talking about?

Plus, how is there any plastic left in the ocean after they used it to cover your gargantuan feet?

- [CHUCKLING]

- Yeah, big feet.

Hey, guys, though, we got a little bit of a problem.

Uh, there's, like, a, I don't know, like, a backup of the water lines or something.

The ice machine's broken.

We don't have any ice.

Oh, sh1t.

Okay, well, just, uh, call the store and have them deliver some ice.

And make more waste by having a big smoke-spewing truck deliver ice to us when we could just simply get off our asses and go get it ourselves?

Hey, guys, listen, I just wanted to talk about the importance of not only talking the talk, but also walking the walk.

Oh.

As I'm saying that, it's reminding me I'm loving my new eco-friendly shoes.

See there?

Not only am I helping the environment, I could also get some free swag - if I keep it up, play my cards right.

- DENNIS: That's awesome.

You're such an awesome eco-warrior.

And since you want to walk the walk, why don't you walk to the store and pick us up some ice?

- I just might.

- Okay, then do it.

- Maybe I will.

- Get out and go!

Could even do an Instagram Story about it on my way there.

Oh, super cool!

- DENNIS AND FRANK: Go!

- Fine.

- Go, go and go - and go and go and go and go and go, go, go and go.

- Fine!

Charlie, come with me; I need someone to video me so I look more professional.

I don't want to do that.

We'll do a Story about Purina, tag them, and get you a free case of cat food.

- Done.

- Hmm.

Did you see that, Frank?

If you incentivize somebody to make the right decision, you can get them to do whatever you need them to do.

All right, what about me?

Where's my incentive?

Well, uh, how about we lower that AC even more and see if that helps you?

How would that help me?

Frank, what's the temperature at which a certain body part's small, smooth muscle cells contract, thereby decreasing the surface area of the skin, causing that certain body part to protrude in an unusual fashion?

65. 7 degrees Fahrenheit.

- Make it so.

- I'll do it.

What are you guys talking about?

Nipples, Mac.

Uh, nipples.

Hi.

[BELL DINGS]

Son of a bitch charged me $40 for a bag of ice, Charlie.

They he's taking advantage of this heat wave, - jacking up the prices.

- Yeah, he's smart.

So what's going on with the feet?

- I see you limping here.

- Ah!

Yeah, you know what?

These shoes, they are, they're the worst.

Well, my feet are all blistered and swollen.

- Yeah?

- But they're so cute and totally on-brand.

- Uh-huh.

- What are you doing?

Don't do the Story now.

Well, you told me to shoot candid moments - that seemed honest.

- I said staged moments that looked candid and seemed honest.

All right, well, can we just walk back to the bar?

Let's go.

I-I don't know.

I honestly don't think I can walk back.

My feet are killing me.

Let's take the bus, then.

Do you have any idea how much pollution a bus causes?

I don't know.

Uh, three?

Three?

- Three what?

- Pollutions?

- All right, we're not - I-I'm not a scient - I'm not a scientist.

- We're not You're not a scientist.

I get it.

We're not taking the bus, though, because buses are wasteful and more importantly disgusting.

You're just all crammed on there with a bunch of mongrels breathing directly into your mouth.

There's no room.

No.

Plus it's the future, Charlie.

- We can just take a rideshare.

- Rideshare?

Why What?

Yeah.

It's when a bunch of people get the app, and then y'all take the same vehicle to different places.

Same vehicle, diff so, like a bus.

Fine, but it's not a bus, it's a car.

- So less room.

- Okay.

Uh-huh.

'Cause if we just take the bus - We're not taking a bus, Charlie!

- Okay.

- Taking the rideshare.

Come on.

- All right.

Well Well, I'm hot blooded Check it and see - I got a fever of a hundred and three - Come on, baby What the hell is this?

Hey, Frank, Frank, Frank.

- Hold on.

What's-what's going on, man?

- What?

I thought you turned the AC up?

- It's getting hot as hell.

- I did.

I did, but there's too many people here.

I can't offset the body heat.

- Hey, we got a problem.

- Yeah, I yeah, I saw that.

What's with all the water, man?

What's going on here?

MAC: Oh, that is probably from the ice machine breaking down.

The water got backed up and maybe diverted over here.

But that's not what I'm talking about.

- What?

- Look.

The fish factory guys heard about the AC.

Now they're hanging out.

- Nobody wants to go near them.

- Yeah, well, they're covered in fish parts.

They probably smell like sh1t.

Go kick them out, Mac.

Uh, well, they go to my church.

And if I kick them out, then they'll tattle on me to God.

- Are you kidding me?

- No.

FRANK: You know, Dennis, I'm not very incentivized here.

These are not the nips I wanted.

- [SIGHS]

- Whoa, Frank.

Come on, man.

Now is not the time for your racism.

This affects us all.

We're all in this together.

Talking about the nipples.

I don't see any.

- Oh.

Right, right.

Sorry.

Your, um - Not people.

Yeah, no, your track record in that department is, uh, it's not great.

Yeah, it's just that his misogyny is stronger - than his racism.

- In this case.

- In this case.

- All right, well, sorry for, uh, sorry for jumping on you like that.

Um, we can figure this out.

- Of course.

God will provide.

- Well, we will provide.

I'm looking for answers right now.

We will provide.

- I got an answer.

God created us.

- Okay.

[SIGHS]

All right, you know what?

Look, um, I have an idea.

We'll adapt.

Well, I'm hot blooded, check it and see Hey, guys.

Hey, why create an even bigger carbon footprint by taking stinky buses all over town when you can just hop in a, in a, in a rideshare, in an electric vehicle?

I'm loving this ride, y'all.

And cut.

Stop saying "and cut," Charlie.

Just take your finger off the button.

You don't have to say that.

Christ.

Might as well be in a bus.

I am eating this guy's breath.

- Yeah.

- I mean, just straight up eating it.

- It's super hot in here, too.

- It's so hot.

- I'm boiling.

- Guy?

Can you turn the AC up, please?

- We're dying back here.

- DRIVER: Uh, sorry, electric car.

AC kills the battery.

Okay, then just turn it on for a minute and then turn it right back off.

Want me to open a window?

No.

No, I actually don't want hot air from the outside blowing all over the place, but thank you.

You want a breath mint or some gum?

I want some goddamn air conditioning.

What's some gum gonna do?

Well, when someone offers you gum, it's usually a hint.

- That's him!

That's not me.

- Uh, well, - it's both of you.

It's both of you.

- Uh I'm gonna give you one star, jerk!

Maybe consider getting some gum for those pits!

What an ass Hey, everybody.

Just coming back from a real quick trip.

We walked to the store and then we took a fantastic rideshare home.

And we got a really awesome bag of ice to show for it.

- And stop!

- What?

What are you doing?

Well, you don't want me to say "cut," - so I'll say "stop.

" It's better.

- Well, I wanted to bring the ice up into the frame so I could show them - and don't say, don't say "cut" or "stop," just stop.

- Oh, okay.

All right?

Let's do it again.

Where is the ice?

- Uh, the ice is melted.

Yeah, not much left.

- Uh - What?!

- It was super hot in that car, Dee.

Oh, Christ!

- Cat food, please?

- Not We're not gonna get the cat food 'cause we [GROANS]

- I can't go back in there without d Hey!

- And go!

We're just getting ice out here.

- And stop.

- Beating the heat.

[SCREAMS]

Hey - fans.

- And stop!

I'm going to murder you.

- Whoa, you're freaking out.

- Yes.

I am freaking out.

Film when I say "film.

" Hey, everybody.

- You said "film.

" - All good.

It's just hot.

It's just so hot.

And cut.

- You saying "cut" now?

- I say "cut," not you!

- All right, I got a plan.

- It's hard to follow all your rules, Dee.

- Just shut up!

We're gonna call a car.

- Uh-huh.

We're gonna get in the car.

We're gonna go get ice.

We're gonna come back with a bag of ice, and we're gonna shove it in their face So we're taking two cars when we could've taken one car or called the truck and this whole thing could've been done, like, hours ago.

- Okay.

We'll walk.

But stop talking to me!

- Okay, we'll walk.

- And I'm rolling.

- Hi.

We're just gonna walk to get some more ice.

- I said it's getting hot in here, so hot - So take off all your clothes I am getting too hot, I want to take my clothes off Oh, it's getting hot in here, so hot So take off all your clothes I am getting Hey, Frank.

Global warming is the f*cking best.

Hey, can I talk to you for a second?

- Yeah.

- Yeah.

Over here.

Ah.

- Yeah.

- DENNIS: All right, guys.

Listen, we got another problem, all right?

We're running out of glasses and I can't run the dishwasher 'cause it's too big of a power suck.

It's gonna kill the AC.

I got a fix.

We got this stuff back when we were gonna have the Memorial Day party, but then we had to cancel it because of the blizzard.

- Oh!

You bought the yeah!

- Yeah!

- That's working together, baby.

- It's plastic.

- DENNIS: Nice work.

- The Lord provideth again!

No, Mac!

No.

The Lord not provideth.

Frank provideth.

He's the one who bought the cups.

Frank provideth.

That well, the Lord provideth the snowstorm in May that allowed us to get the cups now.

- Uh-huh.

- See?

It's all a part of his divine plan, Dennis.

And that's locked in, so we're good.

Okay, so all we have to do is nothing?

No.

No, because, uh, we have free will, Dennis, which means that, um, we have to take the necessary steps to make sure that that plan comes to fruition.

- Which is predetermined.

- Yes.

But it doesn't matter what we do if it's all predetermined.

You see how your argument doesn't make any sense?

Uh, that's correct.

But it doesn't have to make sense, because that's where the faith comes in.

Right?

I have faith that what I'm saying makes sense.

Okay, so even if it doesn't make sense, your faith makes it make sense.

- Correct.

- Got it.

Okay, so there's no way to have a rational conversation with you.

- No.

- Climate change affects us all.

Okay?

We're all in this together.

All right?

We need to work together, and we can still make a profit, okay?

Don't worry.

Just let me think about how to make this work.

Well, think fast, because it's getting hotter in here and people are gonna start dying.

I got an idea.

I got an idea.

Look, the-the music, it's very, very up-tempo.

What if we throw a couple slow jams in here, all right?

Drop the body heat down a notch.

- FRANK: Let's do it.

- That's an excellent idea.

And don't you see how God came through you to come up with that idea?

Go turn change the music.

- Change the music.

- I'll go change the music.

I'm-a change the music.

- [BELL DINGS]

- Son of a bitch.

Charged me 20 extra bucks for this one.

- Want me to film this rant?

- No!

Obviously I don't.

What is this?

What have you done?

Well, I got a nice little trash bag that's keeping me a little bit cooler and then this totally creates shade.

You want me to make you a hat?

No, thanks.

I don't want to wear trash on my head.

You're wearing it on your feet.

I paid 90 bucks for these things.

Well, I can charge you for the hat if it - makes you feel better.

- No, that's not the point - I was making, but the - Oh, all right.

My shoes do suck.

My feet are dead.

Let's just call another car and get back to the bar before this ice melts again.

Oh, goddamn it.


- What's wrong?

- My account's been suspended.

That driver gave me one star, citing "verbal abuse" and saying I urinated all over the backseat of his car.

That was melted ice.

Actually, I did pee back there a little bit.

- I did, too.

It was a very long ride.

- You did?

I thought you did.

- I did.

Yeah.

But that's not the point.

- Ah, all right.

The point is we're stuck now.

Unless we take the bus.

[MOANS]

- [MAN EXHALING HEAVILY]

- [GRUNTS]

Goddamn it.

- - How did it get hotter?

I don't know, man.

I think the slow jams backfired.

It's like all the friction from the grinding, like, created a closed system.

I didn't account for all the increased sexiness.

There's a lot of rumblings coming from - the water section, too, there.

- DENNIS: Well, that's 'cause they're not reusing the cups.

You know what I mean?

They don't have any cups left.

They're throwing all the trash - in the water.

- And they want more booze.

- [SIGHS]

- Which, by the way, we don't have any.

We didn't have enough to accommodate the people that were here before, and now it seems like we've doubled in size and we just don't have enough.

- Where is your God now?

- Yeah, Mac.

- He will reveal himself at some point.

- Oh.

Well, is he gonna do it before all these people revolt - and destroy the place?

- All right I don't know, Frank.

I don't question God's will.

If he wants to destroy the Earth, that's on him.

- I support it!

- What are you talking about?

Guys-guys, stop Okay, stop bickering.

We can't be bickering.

Okay, look.

We said we were gonna beat the heat together.

As a team, as a community.

And that's what we're gonna do, goddamn it.

I got it.

I got it.

Hey, uh, everybody, if I could get your attention, please.

I got a quick announcement.

If everybody could just listen up real quick.

- Dennis has an announcement.

- Yeah, I have an annou You don't need to announce my announcement.

Okay.

Idiot.

Um, okay, uh, so, guys, uh, are you guys having a good time?

- What a great party, huh?

- [CROWD CHEERING]

That's right, that's right.

But check this out.

Check this out.

Here's my announcement.

We do need to chill out on the dancing a little bit, 'cause we-we're overworking that AC, but - [CROWD BOOING]

- Now, now, no, no, I get it, I get it, I get it, I get it.

Listen, you think I want to be that guy?

I don't want to be that guy, but I think if we just stop dancing for just a second, the AC can catch up, this place can cool down.

I don't want to stop.

You don't want to stop?

Yeah, I know.

Nobody wants to stop.

We're all having a good time.

But maybe we just, like Uh, you know what?

Let's not stop.

Let's not stop at all.

Let's just chill out.

We'll chill out for a second, you know what I mean?

We'll chill out.

We'll slow things down.

- I don't want to slow down.

- Okay, listen, I know you don't want to slow down, I get it.

[CHUCKLES] : Nobody wants to slow down.

It's all good, but we got to work together, right?

We got to, we got to work together to keep this place cool and to keep everything kosher, all right?

One other announcement: uh, we're running a little low on tequila and other liquors.

[CROWD BOOING]

All right, so [STAMMERS]

I'm not talking crazy stuff here.

We got plenty to go around, all right?

Maybe instead of ten shots, we do, like, five or six.

That's it.

You know?

I I-I want ten shots.

You want ten shots, but, you know, ten shots is too much for you and five to six is plenty.

- Don't tell her what she needs.

- [CROWD BOOING]

Stop.

Everybody st O-Okay.

I get it.

Look, l-let's not You're losing them, you're losing them!

All right, look, I'm not trying to bring the mood down, guys.

This is It's all good.

Okay?

Just let's just recognize that just whoa, pal.

Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa.

Okay, look, stop.

I'm just saying we're in a little bit of a tricky situation here.

We can figure this out.

Just, it's getting real hot in here.

Okay?

And we're running a little low on resources.

It's fine.

W-We But if we adapt, we'll keep the party going for a long, long time.

So who's with me?

[CROWD SCREAMING]

[GLASS SHATTERING]

- I got the booze!

- [CROWD CHEERING WILDLY]

Oh, my God.

That bus was hot as sh1t.

- The third bus was the hottest, you know what I mean?

- Yeah.

It's those local buses.

We should've just gotten off - at the express and walked, but that's - It's all the buses.

- They're bad.

- Whoo.

- Please tell me the ice didn't melt.

- Uh, no, but somebody ripped a hole in the bag - and stole it.

Yeah.

- What?!

- How did you not notice that?

- Oh, I don't know.

My back must have gone numb from the ice on my back.

- You know what I mean?

- Oh, no.

No.

I can't go all the way - back to that store.

I can't do it.

- Oh, no.

No, that's too many vehicles.

But how are your feet feeling, though?

Oh, I got to say, though, Charlie, the feet are feeling real good.

- Whatever you made - I'm pretty proud of that shoe.

- Uh, you should be.

- Yeah.

That's the medical sponge, which is - I don't want to hear any of the details, though.

- Oh, okay.

- I'll spare you.

- Okay?

Thank you.

Whoo.

So what's the plan now?

I got one last idea.

Hey, oh!

Ice!

We got ice.

What's going on in here?

Who are these guys?

DENNIS: Uh, these are our friends from the fish factory.

What's up, guys?

They're actually pretty good dudes once you get to know them.

Yeah, nice c not like the people we had in here before.

- They were terrible.

[CHUCKLES]

- Uh, well, what happened to the party, though?

People were animals, just like I said.

All right, well, while you guys were in here destroying the environment, I got ice, with barely a carbon footprint.

And I also made a pretty sweet Insta Story to spread the word and shame my followers.

- Mm-hmm.

- Check it out.

What up, Dee's Nuts?

Just another important Insta message for you.

Don't forget to reduce, reuse and I'd rather drive six Hummers than smell your sh1t breath, loser!

Well, these shoes suck.

They're terrible.

My feet are all blistered.

What are you doing?

Don't - You're the stupid idiot!

Okay?

- No.

You put my ice bag down I'm not putting the ice down!

I'm taking the ice!

- I'll give your money this time.

- Get the hell out of my store.

But you try and gouge me again, you son of a bitch, I'll gouge your eyes out!

[GRUNTS] : There you go.

Last time you get recycled.

Hope a bird chokes to death on you.

[SHOUTS]

I hate the bus!

Oh, you're disgusting!

I can't stand being near you low-life degenerates!

[SPITS]

Ah.

Yeah.

Not tipping you either, so don't even ask.

- CHARLIE: And cut.

- Okay, stop saying "and cut.

" Goddamn it, Charlie.

[TRIO CHANTING BACKWARDS]
