Keeping the Faith

- The point is, you're old enough
to date without a chaperone.
- Amen.

I don't need a chaperone, I just
need some help. Come on. Guys, please?

I'm begging you.
Yeah, that's the way the business
is going. People want their news
to have more of an edge.

- That's why Brokaw stands now.
- What?

Tom Brokaw. He stands up
when he reads the news.

- The whole time?
- Yeah.

- He does?
- Well, he's been doing it
for about a year now.

- Really?
- Mm-hmm.
- I gotta watch the news more.

You know, I saw your saringas report.
It was very powerful.

through a bris without fainting.

- I talked Mc Donald's
out of the Mc Oyster.
- And a grateful nation thanks you.

Uh, very unexpectedly, but--

Oh, G-- I think it's so great
to be friends first. Don't you?

Always. Friends first.
So, do you write your own reports,
or how does that work?

- Yeah.
- Mm-hmm.
- Oh, yeah.

- Well, I wouldn't trust anybody else
to get 'em right, you know.
- Right, right.

- I mean, you write
your own sermons, right?
- Mmm.

Actually, I download them off the net.
There's this great service.

Ow! Ooh. No.
- No, I was kidding.
- Oh. So you-- you do
write your own sermons.

Thanks. Actually, I like to improvise
a lot. You know, keeps everybody--
myself included-- on their toes.

I-I-I guess you really can't do that
too much with your job, with the news.

- What?
