The episode is called “Gambled at Sunday School.” Earl returns to his former Sunday School to give back some ill-gotten money. Technically, he won it fair and square. You know, if you call convincing a group of 10-year-olds to wager their collection plate money on a game of cards, and then cheating, “fair and square.”
In this short scene, Earl and Randy arrive at the church to try and do the right thing.
EXT. CHURCH - DAY A crowd slowly files in to church. Randy and Earl climb out of the El Camino dressed in their Sunday best. Earl holds up a ziploc bag filled with change and starts to walk towards the church. RANDY (O.C.) Help, Earl, it's got me! Earl turns to see that Randy has caught his tie in the car door. Earl opens the door to set him free. RANDY (CONT'D) Thanks. These things are dangerous. EARL I know, Randy, but as soon as we go inside and give back this money, we'll go straight home and change. RANDY I don't want to go to church, Earl. God is watching, like those cameras at the Quick Stop. He knows if we've been naughty or nice. EARL That's Santa, Randy.
I love writing jokes for Randy. Awesome character. And Ethan Suplee is definitely some kind of mad genius. On a related note – a friend told me “Seriously, dude, you can’t be posting jokes from your scripts on the Internet! What if someone steals them?”
Seriously, dude: chill. I’m pretty sure Greg Garcia is too busy to be trolling the internet looking for jokes to steal for his show. Still, just to be safe…
This one’s on me.
ps. I like your show.
