Rev. Al Sharpton:
Now Brother Preston is soaring with eagles high above, because he lived a life of love. Yes he's flying way up high, because he was a supercool guy. He's gone away, too soon it seems, leaving behind his unfinished dreams. Yes we remember Preston Blake, a man with faith no man could shake. A strength no man could break. A character no man could fake. For goodness sake, let's eat some cake.
Babe, aka "Pam Dawson":
Hard to breathe, feels like floating So full of love, my heart's exploding Mouth is dry, hands are shaking My heart is yours, for the taking Acting weird, not myself Dancing around, like the Keebler elf Finally time, for this poor shlub.
Babe, aka "Pam Dawson":
To know how it feels, to fall in lub.
You climbed mountains and built skyscrapers.
You made TV shows and put out newspapers.
You were wicked good at doing stocks.
You liked it when Emilio would change your socks.
We never hung out and that makes me sad.
All the good times we could've had.
But when I die, Uncle Preston, you better say "Cheers".
Cause when me and you are hanging at the pearly gates, I'll bring the beers. I'll bring the beers.
Nice rhyme, nice rhyme.
[Deeds talks to the pilots]
You guys football fans? I think the Pats could take the conference this year. I mean, the Dolphins are overrated and the Jets are choke artists.
I wouldn't say that, Mr. Deeds.
Just Deeds. Why's that, though?
You own the Jets, Deeds.
I do?! Whoa! That sucks. Jeez. I hope they don't play the Pats in the playoffs, or I'll have to kill myself.
What are you in for?
Eh, I'm doin' an overnighter for bitin' the mailman.
[waves his hand]
He was tryin' to cast some spell on me like a wizard or somethin'.
You sure about that?
I don't know, maybe he was just wavin'.
[waves hand then sees Chuck and Cecil]
Who're your friends?
This is Chuck and Cecil, they're visiting from New York.
I don't like 'em.
[reads the card Deeds wrote for her] Hard to breathe, feels like floating.
So full of love, my heart's exploding.
Mouth is dry, hands are shaking.
My heart is yours for the taking.
Acting weird, not myself.
Dancing around like the Keebler elf.
Finally time, for this poor schlub
to know how it feels, to fall in lub.
I couldn't think of anything else that rhymes with schlub. Rub and tub didn't work.
We're looking for somebody. Longfellow Deeds.
Wow! Is that Deeds' first name?
Well, if the Deeds you're referring to is Longfellow Deeds, then yes, that is Deeds's first name.
Well, I don't know Deeds's first name. Maybe it's Greg.
Maybe it's Longfellow.
Maybe. But I don't know. I know another guy named Greg. You want me to call him up?
No! Thank you. Please. Just tell us where Deeds lives.
Excuse me. Is Mr. Deeds around?
No, I'm sorry. He's out making deliveries. The regular delivery guy called in sick. But you don't look too sick to me, Murph.
Oh! I forgot I was fakin' sick today. [to Cedar and Cecil] You two tricked me into comin' here.
Murph, put on an apron and gimme a hand.
[sets to work] You guys played me like a fiddle. Touche!
Is Mrs. Deeds around?
Mrs. Deeds!? I don't think that poor boy ever had a date.
