>> WELL, I'M SORRY I'M LATE.

I WAS SUPPOSED TO BE HERE

A LITTLE EARLIER, BUT, UH,

I JUST SPENT THE LAST TWO

HOURS AT A 7-ELEVEN GOING...

[shouting] MARLBORO!

MARLBORO!

CIGARETTES!

SMOKEY SMOKEY!

YOU DON'T EVEN SPEAK ENGLISH?

HOW THE [bleep] DID YOU

GET THIS JOB?

I SHOULD HAVE SHOT YOUR ASS IN

DA NANG WHEN I HAD THE CHANCE!

>> CERTAIN PEOPLE,

AS SOON AS YOU HEAR THE WORDS

"HAVE YOU HEARD ABOUT..."

YOU KNOW THEY'RE DEAD.

>> THEY CALLED ME AND SAID,

"LENNY, SAM'S DEAD."

MY FIRST REACTION WAS,

"DID YOU SEE THE BODY?"

BECAUSE I NEVER THOUGHT

HE WOULD DIE.

>> HE LED LIFE AT SUCH

AN INTENSE LEVEL--

FALL OF A CLIFF, O.D.,

GUN GOES OFF BY MISTAKE,

CAR ACCIDENT.

>> HE'D BE THE GUY THAT EVERY

YEAR, YOU'D GO LIKE,

"DID YOU SEE KINISON'S

NEW MATERIAL?

IT'S UNBELIEVABLE.

WHERE IS HE COMING UP

WITH THIS STUFF?"

>> I DON'T KNOW IF JESUS HAS

ACTUALLY SPOKEN IN AN AUDIBLE

VOICE TO ANYBODY IN ABOUT

2,000 YEARS, FOLKS.

I THINK HIS LAST WORDS

MAY HAVE BEEN...

[thumping]

OH, OH!

OH, NOT THE OTHER ONE!

OH, YOU JERKS!

NO! NO!"

>> THERE HASN'T BEEN A PERSON

SINCE HIM THAT'S REALLY

CAPTURED WHAT HE DOES.

>> I'M GOING AROUND THE COUNTRY,

AND I'M TRYING TO GET AS MANY

PEOPLE AS I CAN NOT TO GET

MARRIED, TO PROMISE NEVER

TO GET MARRIED.

AND I'VE BEEN MARRIED, AND I'M

JUST TRYING TO HELP, OKAY?

IS THERE ANYBODY HERE

THAT'S NEVER BEEN MARRIED?

YOU'VE NEVER BEEN MARRIED?

[giggles]

WHAT'S YOUR NAME?

MICHAEL.

WELL, MICHAEL, IF YOU EVER

THINK ABOUT GETTING MARRIED,

IF YOU EVER THINK YOU'VE MET

THE RIGHT WOMAN AND YOU WANT TO

SETTLE DOWN, CHANGE YOUR LIFE,

WILL YOU DO ME A FAVOR, MIKE?

REMEMBER THIS FACE.

[yells] AAH!

[yells] AAH!

'CAUSE IF YOU GET MARRIED,

MIKE, THAT'S GONNA BE YOUR

[bleep] FACE EVERY MORNING.

IT'S THE FACE OF EVERY

MARRIED MAN.

>> I MISS HIM MORE THAN--

YOU KNOW, I MISS MY DAD,

AND I MISS SAM KINISON.

I REALLY WISH I COULD SHOW HIM,

YOU KNOW, WHAT I'VE DONE,

YOU KNOW, 'CAUSE IT'S SO--

HE HAD SO MUCH TO DO WITH IT.
