Sanford and Son (1972–1977): Season 2, Episode 24 - Rated X - full transcript

Lamont and Rollo hit upon the information that an independent film company is looking for inexperienced black actors to be featured in an experimental new film. After some cajoling, Fred is encouraged to try out as well. However, when the three meet the director and the producer, they get a look at the script and discover that it is a pornographic movie. Before they can leave, the place is raided by the police and they land in jail. In the lock-up, Lamont calls Aunt Esther to get them out. Yet, after they are cleared of the charges, Esther won't allow them to be freed, she wants to read to the heathens some scriptures from the Bible first.

I'M NOT EATIN' IT, 'CAUSE YOU'RE

NOBODY DON'T WANNA EAT NO

I AIN'T BEEN LAPPIN' IN IT.
THEN HOW YOU KNOW IT'S GOOD?

I SMELLED IT.

THAT'S EVEN WORSE.

MY LIPS ARE LOCKED.

WELL, I'M GOIN' TO SEE A MAN
ABOUT GETTIN' A PART IN A MOVIE.

IT'S ONE OF THEM LOW-BUDGET FILMS, AND
IT'S DONE BY AN INDEPENDENT FILM COMPANY,

AND THEY PAY YOU $50 A DAY.

ONCE THE FILM COMES
OUT, I COULD BE DISCOVERED.

NOW TELL ME THE ONE ABOUT
GOLDILOCKS AND THE THREE BEARS.

WHY DON'T YOU BELIEVE ME?

SAME REASON I DON'T BELIEVE IN THE
EASTER BUNNY. 'CAUSE I GOT GOOD SENSE.

THAT'S THE THING THAT
MAKES ME MAD AT YOU, POP.

THAT'S THE VERY THING
THAT MAKES ME MAD AT YOU.

ANY OLD DOG OR CAT COULD
COME IN HERE OFF THE STREET...

AND TELL YOU HE WAS
STARTIN' A MOVIE CAREER,

AND YOU'D BE ASKIN'
HIM FOR AN AUTOGRAPH.

BUT LET ME, YOUR OWN FLESH AND BLOOD, TELL
YOU THE SAME THING, AND YOU PUT ME DOWN.

- IT'S NOT RIGHT.
- ANY OLD DOG OR CAT
COULD HAVE SOME TALENT.

AND I SUPPOSE I DON'T
HAVE NO TALENT, HUH?

YOU AIN'T GOT NO TALENT TO BE A JUNK
MAN. MAYBE YOU COULD BE A MOVIE STAR.

YOU SEE THAT? YOU SEE THAT?

THAT'S WHY I DON'T EAT
SOUP THAT YOU MAKE,

'CAUSE YOU ALWAYS LAPPIN' IN IT!

I AIN'T LAPPIN' IN IT. YOU
AIN'T GONNA EAT NONE? NO.

THEN I WAS LAPPIN' IN IT.

SAY, WHAT WAS THIS
MOVIE ABOUT, ANYWAY?

I DON'T KNOW. I'M GOING TO MEET
WITH THE DIRECTOR AND THE PRODUCER.

IN FACT, ROLLO SHOULD HAVE
BEEN HERE TEN MINUTES AGO.

WHAT? ROLLO? DID YOU SAY ROLLO?

YEAH, HE'S THE ONE
THAT TOLD ME ABOUT IT.

IF YOU AND ROLLO GONNA BE IN A
MOVIE, I GOT THE PERFECT NAME FOR IT.

"SUPER DUMMIES."

I'M NOT GONNA BE A
DUMMY MUCH LONGER.

LISTEN, AS LONG AS THERE'S
A ROLLO, YOU'LL BE A DUMMY.

HE TAKES ADVANTAGE OF YOU
'CAUSE YOU GOT AN EMPTY HEAD.

YOUR HEAD IS EMPTY. THAT'S WHY YOU

I DON'T WANNA TALK ABOUT

I AIN'T GONNA SAY NO
MORE ABOUT IT. THANK YOU.

YOU GOT INTO THIS

OH, LISTEN. I DON'T HAVE A PICTURE OF
MYSELF. YOU THINK I'M GONNA NEED ONE?

I HOPE NOT, 'CAUSE I AIN'T GOT
A PICTURE OF MYSELF EITHER.

WELL, ROLLO, WHY DON'T YOU
GO DOWN TO THE POST OFFICE...

AND TAKE ONE OF YOUR
PICTURES DOWN OFF THE WALL?

- COME ON, ROLLO. LET'S GO.

THROUGH TALKIN' YET.

LISTEN, ROLLO, I

TIMES, MR. SANFORD.

THIS IS THE GOLDEN AGE OF
FILMMAKING FOR THE BLACK MAN.

LIKE MYSELF AND LAMONT.

THAT'S RIGHT, POP. BLACK IS
VERY PROFITABLE RIGHT NOW.

STUDIOS IN HOLLYWOOD IS

FASTER THAN CARS ARE
COMIN' OFF THE ASSEMBLY LINES.

FROM WHAT I'VE
SEEN OF SOME OF 'EM,

BACK FOR CORRECTION...

LIKE THEY DO THEM CARS THAT
COME OFF THE ASSEMBLY LINE.

IN THE OLD DAYS, MOVIES WERE
MOVIES, AND STARS WERE STARS.

LOUISE BEAVERS, REX
INGRAM, LENA HORNE.

BUT NOWADAYS, ANY FOOL THEY
CUT LOOSE FROM A FOOTBALL TEAM,

RIGHT AWAY THEY STICK HIM IN FRONT
OF A CAMERA AND CALL IT A MOVIE.

PERSONALLY, I'M HAPPY TO BE

STRIDES FORWARD. ME TOO.

EVEN IF I DON'T MAKE IT, IT
WON'T BE BECAUSE I DIDN'T TRY.

I DON'T PLAN TO SPEND THE REST OF

I DON'T KNOW IF THESE ARE YOUR
BRAND. ANY BRAND IS ALL RIGHT,

AS LONG AS IT AIN'T NONE OF
THAT ACAPULCO ARTICHOKE.

THIS COULD BE VERY DISCONCERTING
THE FIRST TIME AROUND.

SOMETIMES YOU JUST NEED SOMEONE

IT COULD GET VERY
LONELY AFTER A FEW WEEKS.

OH, I'M SORRY.

FRED SANFORD, I'M GLAD MY
SISTER ISN'T HERE TO SEE THIS...

LISTEN, ESTHER, I DIDN'T
PUT NO STAIN ON YOUR FAMILY.

YOUR FAMILY WAS STAINED
WHEN I MET YOU-ALL.

- DON'T YOU TALK ABOUT MY FAMILY!
- I'LL TALK ABOUT YOUR FAMILY.

EVERY TIME A BABY WAS BORN,
THEY HAD THAT UGLY STAIN ON 'EM.

THAT'S RIGHT. THAT UGLY STAIN.
