What can I do for you?

I'd like to fix my flat, if you don't mind.

No, I don't mind.

If you get in the barn there, you'll find any tools you need. [Motorcycle Revs]

My wife is Catholic, you know.

Honey, could we have some more coffee?

No, I mean it. You've got a nice place.

[Billy] Hey, man, what are you doing?

I gotta talk to you, man.

[Exhales]

Hey, man, everything that we ever dreamed of is in that teardrop gas tank... and you got a stranger over there pouring gasoline all over it.

Man, all he's got to do is turn and look over into it, man, and he can see that...

He won't know what it is, man. He won't know what it is. Don't worry, Billy.

Everything's all right. All right, man. All right. I don't know, man.

I do.

Everything's fine, Billy.

Well, uh... [Sniffs] That's all taken care of.

I like that. [Chuckles]

How much further we gotta go, man? I don't know.

Huh? Not much further.

[Chuckles] That's what you said this mornin'.

I sometimes say it all day.

[Billy Chuckles] Really? You say it all day, eh?

[Coughs] We don't have much longer. We'll be there soon.

We gotta get to Mardi Gras, man. We're going to Mardi Gras.

Your little heart is set on that, huh?

We got a week. That's a week away, man.

[Billy] It's a long way to Mardi Gras, baby.

It won't take us a week to get to New Orleans.

Wow.

I think I'm gonna crash. [Billy Chuckles]

I think you have crashed, man. [Chuckles]

[Billy Groans]

[Sighs]

I keep seeing things jumping all over the place. [Laughing]

Really? Yeah, look.

What is it? It's... It's a moth.

A what? Yeah, man.

Moth. Bug.

[Sniffs]

[Exhales]

It's a weird place, man.

Oh, man. That smoke's getting to me.

[Sniffs] But I notice you're not moving.

[Laughing]

[Billy] Where you from, man?

Can I, uh... Can I have a light?

Where you from, man?

[Exhaling]

Hard to say. [Chuckles] It's hard to say?

Where you from, man?

Well, it's hard to say because it's a very long word, you know?

I just want to know where you're from, man.

A city.

From a city. Mm-hmm.

Doesn't make any difference what city. All cities are alike.

That's why I'm out here now. [Chuckling] That's why you're out here now?

Yeah. Why?

'Cause I'm from the city, a long way from the city, and that's where I want to be right now.

They know you in this place? [Sniffing]

[Exhales] This place we're coming to?

No. Here. The place we're at now?

This place.

[Billy Laughs]

You're right on top of'em.

I'm right on top of'em? Yeah.

The people this place belongs to are buried right under you.

You could be a trifle polite.

"A trifle polite"? [Chuckles]

A small thing to ask.

You ever want to be somebody else?

I'd like to try Porky Pig.

I never wanted to be anybody else.

[Goat Bleating]

Hey, Rudolph, what are you eating?

[Sarah] Thanks for the stuff you brought.

[Man] How's it going? [Sarah] We just can't take any more strangers.

Just too many people dropping in.

Oh, I'm not talking about you and your friends. You know that.

[Rudolph Bleating] Like the week before...

Susan dropped in with 12 people from Easter City.

She wanted to take 10 pounds of rice with her.

[Man] Yeah? Well, naturally we had to say no.

Right. So she gets all uptight... and she breaks out some hash, and she won't give us any.

Oh, and that's not all. The next morning, they went outside to start their bus... and they couldn't get it started.

[Man Chuckles] Sarah, I bet you haven't had anybody around like me to rap to, have you?

I don't have to tell you how it is, Sarah. You know I love you, and I want you to rap...

Oh, God, I want you to rap, rap, rap! Cut that out!

I guess nobody else here is interested, but, um, I would sure like to meet your friend.

I'll bet you'd like to do more than that.

I think he's beautiful. He's beautiful.

Hey, what is that, uh, weird thing up there on the hill, man?

Looks like a stage. You got a light opera company here or something?

That-That's the mime troupe stage. They've gone down to the hot springs to bathe.

Mime troupe? [Chuckles]

[Woman] Hey, Lisa? Oh.

What does this mean? "Starting brings misfortune.

"Perseverance brings danger. Ta-da!

"Not every demand for change in the existing order should be heeded.

"On the other hand, repeated and well-founded complaints... should not fail to a hearing. " [Lisa] Well...

?? [Guitar Strumming] [Man] Hear yel Hear yel Hear yel We've come to play for our dinner.

Or should I say, stay for our dinner.

Or, even, slay for our dinnerl Oh, men at war. How ghastly, ghastly. [Chuckling] Ah.

We've come to drink your wine... [Chuckling] taste your food and take pleasure in your women.

It's fantastic. The water in that river is about 80 degrees.

You put your hand in about a foot away, it's below freezing.

[Sarah] Come on. I've gotta get dinner on. [Muttering]

Out? Who said "out" to me? Unhand me! I've played communal...

Out! Out! Out!

Ye shall hear this. Evil eye on this place.

A double whammy for all of you.

[Woman] When you lie down with dogs, you get up with fleas.

[Mime] Come, my dear. We won't play here. [Sarah] You two, come on.

Wow. Wow. Wow. Wow.

Wow. Wow.

[Growling Playfully] Get out.

I like you. [Laughs]

[Children Laughing, Chattering]

[Man] You see, what happened here is these people got here late in the summer... too late to plant.

But the weather was beautiful, and it was easy livin', and everything was fine.

And then came that winter.

There were 40 or 50 of them here living in this one-room place down here... nothin' to eat, starvin', out by the side of the road lookin' for dead horses.

Anything they could get ahold of. Now there's... there's 18 or 20 of'em left, and they're city kids.

Look at 'em.

But they're gettin'this crop in. They're gonna stay here till it's harvested.

That's the whole thing.

You get much rain here, man?

I guess we're gonna have to dance for that.

Look at this, man. A seashell, man. Dig.

You dig that?

This is nothin' but sand. They ain't gonna make it. Ain't gonna grow anything here.

They're gonna make it.

Dig, man.

They're gonna make it.

"Dude"?

What does he mean, "dude"? "Dude ranch"? [Chuckles]

Dude? No, no, no.

"Dude" means, uh, a nice guy. You know?

"Dude" means a regular sort of person.

You boys don't look like you're from this part of the country.

You're lucky I'm here to see that you don't get into anything.

Anything? Well... [Clears Throat]

They got this here, see, uh...

"scissor-happy, beautify America" thing going on around here.

They're trying to make everybody look like Yul Brynner.

They used rusty razor blades on the last two longhairs that they brought in here... and I wasn't here to protect them.

See, uh, I'm a...

I'm a lawyer.

Done a lot of work for the A.C.L.U.

"George Hanson."

Listen, you think you can help us get out of here with no sweat?

I imagine that I can if you haven't killed anybody.

At least nobody white.

See there? Twenty-five dollars. Not too bad.

And no razor blades. You know what I mean?

Very groovy, George. Thank you. "Very groovy." Very groovy.

See there? I'll bet nobody ever said that to you.

Oh, by the way, Bob, thanks for the aspirin before.

[Sheriff] George, I'm gettin'to...

I'm gettin'to think you're a regular regular around here.

I'm not gonna tell your dad.

I don't know, George. You just gotta be more careful.

Yeah, well, Pat, that'd be real good if the powers that be wouldn't hear about this.

I mean, the old man hadn't been feelin' too good. You know what I mean?

Well, now, George, you know we won't tell your dad about that.

Isn't that right, Bob? That's right.

Well, what do you say we take a look... at these super machines we've been hearing so much about?

Let's get it on.

Thanks a lot, Bob. See you later.

I'll take care of it later. Don't worry about it.

Well, old buddy, I never thought I'd ever see you again.

You know, I threw this thing away one week ago.

My mother, of all people, retrieved it. I can't understand that.

She didn't even want me to play football.

Always afraid I was gonna get hurt.

And here, 12 years later, lfind it on my pillow... with a note pinned next to it saying, "Save this for your son."

[Laughs]

[Gasps] Nik, nik...

[Exhales] Nik! Fire.

Do this instead.

Oh, no, thanks. I got some, uh, store-bought right over here of my own.

No, man, this is grass.

You... You mean marijuana?

Yeah.

Lord, have mercy. Is that what that is?

Le-Let me see that.

Marijuana. Hmm.

Hmm.

Go ahead, George. Light it up.

Oh, no, no, no, no. I... l-I couldn't do that.

I mean, I've got enough problems with the... with the booze and all.

I mean, I can't afford to get hooked.

Oh, no. You won't get hooked.

Yeah, well, I know. But I mean, it-it... it leads to harder stuff.

Is that, uh... You-You say it's all right?

Well, uh, all right then. Well, how-how do I do it?

Here.

Mm. Wait a second.

[Exhales]

Well, uh, that-that's got a real nice, uh, taste to it.

Though I don't suppose it'll do me much good though.

I mean, I'm so used to the booze and everything.

You've got to hold it in your lungs longer, George.

Oh.

[Billy] Oh, wow.

What... was that, man?

What the hell was that, man?

Huh?

No, man. Like, hey, man. Wow. I was watching this object, man, like... like the satellite that we saw the other night, right?

And, like, it was just going right across the sky, man, and then...

I mean, it just suddenly, uh... [Laughing]

It just changed direction and went, uh, whizzing right off, man.

It flashed... You're stoned out of your mind, man.

Oh, yeah, man. Hey, like, I'm stoned, you know, man.

But, like, you know, I saw a satellite, man... and it was goin' across the sky... and it flashed three times at me... and zigzagged and whizzed off, man.

And I saw it.

[Exhales] That was a U.F.O. beamin' back at you.

Me and Eric Heisman was down in Mexico two weeks ago.

We seen 40 of'em flyin' in formation.

They-They... They have got bases all over the world now, you know.

They've been comin'here ever since 1946... when the scientists first started bouncin'radar beams off of the moon... and they have been livin' and workin' among us in vast quantities ever since.

The government knows all about 'em.

What are you talkin', man?

Mmm. Well, you just seen one of'em, didn't you?

Hey, man, I saw something, man, but I didn't see it working here.

You know what I mean?

Well, they are people just like us... from within our own solar system... except that their society is more highly evolved.

I mean, they don't have no wars. They got no monetary system.

They don't have any leaders because, I mean, each man is a leader.

I mean, each man... Because of their technology... they are able to feed, clothe, house and transport themselves... equally and with no effort.

[Exhales]

Wow.

Well, you know something, man?

I think... You wanna know what I think?

I think this is a crackpot idea. That's what I think.

[Laughing] How about that? How about a little of that?

I think it's a crackpot idea.

I mean, if they're so smart, why don't they just reveal themselves to us and get it over with?

[Laughs]

Why don't they reveal themselves to us... is because, if they did, it would cause a general panic.

Now, I mean, we still have leaders... upon whom we rely for the release of this information.

These leaders have decided to repress this information... because of the tremendous shock that it would cause to our antiquated systems.

Now, the result of this has been that the Venusians... have contacted people at all walks of life.

All walks of life. [Giggling] Yes.

It-It would be a devastatin' blow to our antiquated systems.

So now Venusians are meeting with people in all walks of life... in an advisory capacity.

For once, man will have a godlike control over his own destiny.

He will have a chance to transcend and to evolve... with some equality for all.

How's your joint, George?

Oh, my. I believe... I believe it went out.

Went out.

Well, save it. We'll do it tomorrow morning, first thing, all right?

Gives you a whole new way of looking at the day.

Well, I sure could use that. [Laughing]

Yes, I sure could use a little of that.

What the hell is this? Troublemakers?

[Girl] Y'all, check what just walked in.

Ooh, I like the one in the red shirt with the suspenders.

Mm-mmm. The white shirt's for me.

Nah. Look how tight those black pants are.

Uh, we're in the establishment now, aren't we, gentlemen?

What'd you say? I said... [Trills Tongue]... tang.

[Trills Tongue] What? I said... [Trills Tongue]... tang.

[Trilling Tongue]... tang?

Oh, I just can't believe. What are they doin'here?

Look at the teeth around his neck. Did they drive up on motorcycles?

I think they know we're talkin' about 'em. They're lookin' over here.

[Girls Giggling]

Hot damn. I tell you.

I think I'll order kidneys, 'cause I left mine out there on the road somewhere.

[Billy Laughing]

I don't know, but I like his hair all down his head. And I like his eyes.

See that little girl right over there in the corner?

Well, don't look too close at her, because the sheriff's right over there.

You know what I mean?

Check that joker with the long hair. I checked him already.

Look like we might have to bring 'em up to the Hilton before it's all over with.

Ha! I think she's cute. Isn't she though?

I guess we'll put 'em in a woman's cell, don't you reckon?

Oh, I think we oughta put 'em in a cage and charge a little admission to see 'em.

[Sighs]

Those are what is known as, uh, country witticisms.

[Girl] I can't believe they're here. What are they doin'here?

[Girl #2] I don't know. Let's ask them to take us for a ride.

No, we can't ask! Don't be foolish. Yeah!

No. They'll think you're... Oh! They'll laugh in your face.

That'd be good too. I doubt it.

I might ask 'em. You might ask 'em? Go ahead.

Not when I'm around, you're not gonna ask 'em.

I don't think you're gonna. Go ahead.

Okay. Go ahead.

[Man] You know, I thought at first that bunch over there... their mothers had maybe been frightened by a bunch of gorillas... but now I think they were caught.

[Man] Well, one of'em is Alley Oop, I think, from the beads on him.

[Man #2] One of'em, darn sure, is not Ooola.

Look like a bunch of refugees from a gorilla love-in.

[Snickers] A gorilla couldn't love that.

[Laughing] Nor could a mother.

Doggone it, I wouldn't even mate him up with one of those black wenches out there.

Oh, now, I don't know about that.

And that's about as low as they come, I'll tell you.

Oh, he's a biggie. Man, they're green.

No, they're not green. They white.

White? Uh-huh.

Man, you're color-blind. I just got to say that.

Sure like to get some food around here.

[Old Man] I don't know. I thought most jails were built for humanity... and that won't quite qualify.

[Man #2] Wonder where they got those wigs from.

[Old Man] They probably grew 'em. Looks like they're standin'in fertilizer.

Nothin'else would grow on 'em.

No. You know, I'm not real hungry at the moment.

You know what I mean?

[Young Man] I saw two of'em one time. They were just kissin'away.

Two males. Just think of it.

What you think we oughta do with 'em?

I don't never know, but I don't think they'll make the parish line.

Let's split.

[Billy] Split? Yeah.

Yes, sir. It certainly has been nice.

They got some fancy bikes out there. That's some Yankee queers.

Check the flag on that bike.

[Sheriff] It sure is.

I still say they're not gonna make the parish line.

Here come the poon-poon-poontang. [Trilling Tongue]

Hey, fellas, can I have a ride?

You want a ride? [Girls] Yeah. Yeah.

You got a note from your mamas? [Girls Chattering]

My old lady won't mind. Please? Please let us have a ride.

Hey, I like your bike. I wouldn't mind giving you a ride.

You know, this used to be a hell of a good country.

I can't understand what's gone wrong with it.

[Dogs Barking In Distance]

Man, everybody got chicken. That's what happened to it.

Hey, we can't even get into, like, a second-rate hotel.

I mean, a second-rate motel, you dig?

They think we're gonna cut their throat or something, man.

Like, they're scared, man. Oh, they're not scared of you.

They scared of what you represent to 'em.

Hey, man, all we represent to them, man, is somebody who needs a haircut.

Oh, no. What you represent to them is freedom.

What the hell's wrong with freedom, man? That's what it's all about.

Oh, yeah, that's right. That's what it's all about, all right.

But talkin'about it and bein'it... that's two different things.

I mean, it's real hard to be free... when you are bought and sold in the marketplace.

Course, don't ever tell anybody that they're not free...

'cause then they gonna get real busy killin' and maimin'... to prove to you that they are.

Oh, yeah, they gonna talk to you and talk to you and talk to you... about individual freedom.

But they see a free individual, it's gonna scare 'em.

Well, man, it don't make 'em runnin' scared.

No. It makes 'em dangerous.

Not generally. [Chuckles]

You don't... No, man.

You know what I used to do?

What did you used to do, man?

Well, I'll tell you one thing I didn't used to do... was talk to bullfrogs in the middle of the night, fool.

What is this? Is this really your hair? Are you kidding me?

What are these things? Hey, what are these things?

What are these, huh? You know, I'm kind of a freak myself.

But I love to freak.

What's happening outside? What?

You know, on the street. What's happening? Mardi Gras.

Oh, well, it's, you know... It's crowded and all that.

Well, you paid for me, right? Oh.
