ONE OF THE GREAT THINGS ABOUT

NEW YORK THE MULTICULTURAL

ATMOSPHERE, AM I RIGHT?

MANY CULTURES BLENDING AS ONE.

BUT YOU GOTTA BE

EXTRACULTURALLY SENSITIVE

IF YOU'RE A REALLY WHITE GUY

LIKE ME, RIGHT?

YOU GOTTA HAVE THAT EXTRA

LEVEL OF CULTURAL SENSITIVITY.

I'LL GIVE YOU AN EXAMPLE.

I GO IN MY FAVORITE CHINESE

RESTAURANT, CHICKEN AND

BROCCOLI, $4.04.

I LOVE IT, $4.04 THE LUNCH

SPECIAL, FANTASTIC.

BUT YOU KNOW HOW YOU GO IN

THERE IN THE CHINESE RESTAURANT

AND THOSE GUYS THEY'RE COOKING

WITH THE WOKS.

THEY'RE TALKING, THEY'RE

SCREAMING, THEY'RE YELLING,

THEY'RE DELIVER AND YOU START

TALKING LIKE THEM?

[LAUGHTER]

YOU DON'T MEAN TO.

YOU KNOW I GO IN THERE LIKE,

"CHICKEN AND BROCCOLI."

"CHICKEN BROCCOLI, CHICKEN

BROCCOLI, CHICKEN BROCCOLI!

YOU WANT EXTRA SAUCES?"

[ACCENT] "NO SAUCES.

OH SORRY.

[LAUGHTER]

[NO ACCENT] NO SAUCES."

SO I GO IN THERE THE OTHER DAY

AND I'M THINKING, "DON'T TALK

LIKE THE CHINESE GUY.

DON'T DO IT."

I'M REHEARSING.

I'M LIKE, "CHICKEN AND

BROCCOLI, NO SAUCES."

I GOT THE $4 AND THE

FOUR PENNIES ALL READY TO GO.

SO I DON'T HAVE TO SAY ANYTHING

EXTRA, YOU KNOW.

SO I GO IN AND I'M LIKE,

"CHICKEN AND BROCCOLI."

"CHICKEN BROCCOLI, CHICKEN

BROCCOLI, CHICKEN BROCCOLI!

YOU WANT EXTRA SAUCES?"

"NO SAUCES."

[LAUGHTER]

"4.05."

[LAUGHTER]

"DID YOU KNOW IT WAS 4.04."

"AHWAYS 4.05."

[LAUGHTER]

"I THINK IT'S ALWAYS 4.0--"

"AHWAYS 4.05."

[LAUGHTER]

"YOU KNOW I COME IN EVERY DAY

CHICKEN AND BROCCOLI GUY,

HA, HA, HA, HA,

NO SAUCE."

"AHWAYS 4.05."

[LAUGHTER]

I'M LIKE, [ACCENT] "NEVER 4.05."

[LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE]

"AHWAYS 4.04.

NEVER 4.05!

ONLY 4.04!"

[APPLAUSE]

[CHEERING]
