In Lubec, people say "you" and count on context.

Then murder each other in the Clamfields.


Too soon?

Hey, that was never proven.


Murderesque.

I get called "sweet" when I go down South, like if I'm leaving a store I'll say "have a good day" to the cashier, and they'll say "you too, sweet". It happened at least twice I think. Maybe that's the feminine singular.

I've never heard this one, but then again I'm not very sweet.

I wonder if they were calling you "Sweetie" and the "e" sound on end is so soft you're not hearing it?  I've heard that plenty of times.

At first I was sure that's what it was, but there was at least one other time too - but I haven't heard it in a while, so who knows!

It is a southern thing to call people by the word printed on the butt area of their sweatpants, so if you were wearing sweatpants that said "Sweet" on the butt area, that's probably what it was.
If you're not a job creator, you better step the fuck away from that hot dog machine.

When I am giving tests, I often play with anagrams to pass the time between accusing them of cheating. Today I figured out this one. "dave jason fredericks" to "a vicar defends jokers". Who's the vicar, and what did we do to need defending?

Hodgman plays the vicar and you three were mistaken for three bank robbers.  The vicar knows you're innocent and is hiding you from the posse that's after you by dressing you as nuns.

I'm just trying to figure out why an English vicar is in the South and why he has nuns' habits.  And if Hodgman can do a British accent.

It's a lovely thought, rife with cross references to The Hunchback of Notre Dame, the Passion of Joan of Arc, and Going My Way. I kinda had the idea that we might try to do a subtle parody of a little known but highly regarded intellectually powerful film like Au Hasard Balthazar, a variation loaded with physical slapstick and evocative images summoning ruminations on the meaning of life and the existence of God. We already have our central animal image motif, the mighty possum.

Imagine Curly and Larry discussing dispensationalism, using their distinct speaking cadences and limited vocabularies, sprinkling in some verbal non-sequitars and cutting in some images unrelated to what they are saying to give the critics something to chew on, when suddenly Moe hits one of them with a tire iron, and you're close to my vision.

Hey, this sounds appealling.

So, when are you guys coming to Huntsville so we can shoot this?

The tire iron bends.  Moe stares at it incredulously.  Conversation continues...

Gentlemen, if you three would indulge me, I would sincerely like to take a crack at writing a spec script for your approval.
