      • (the reading of Lionel Chadwick's will)
        Magruder: To my loyal butler Charles, I bequeath my priceless collection of sterling silver weinie tongs which completes my bequest to the household staff who served me so long and faithfully. Thank you Charles, Elizabeth (the maid), you may go now.
        Charles: Lunch sir?
        Magruder: The usual Charles. (pauses) Just one or two more points Victoria.
        Victoria: Please go on Mr. Magruder, I'm fine (choking back a sob).
        Magruder: Well then, the bulk of my estate comprised of thirty thousand Chadwick Burger Drive-Ins, a ton of fun in a bun feeds a family of five for less than a dollar. I leave to establish the Lionel Chadwick Foundation for humanitarian endeavor to be headed by my friend and attorney Winston J. Magruder, with the exception of a trust fund provided for Victoria, my longtime secretary, confidant and (coughs) beloved constant companion. Furthermore Victoria is to chose any object from Chadwick Manor to keep as a memento of the (clears throat) happiness we shared. In conclusion to my roving son Henry who will no doubt be late for this reading, having noted my passing only when his allowance stopped, I bequeath the rest and remainder of Chadwick Manor and it's contents. Furthermore it is my profound wish that he except the job provided for him with the foundation and applied himself for what leads to living a useful life, in other words Henry "Settle down and stop being a jerk". Ah, I can scarely realize that Lionel Chadwick is gone.
        Victoria: Bye Lionel you feisty old devil, so active so full of life.

      • Henry: I thought I'd find the scheming gold digger here.
        Victoria: Nice to see you again, Henry.
        Henry: Alright Magruder, what's going on here? Explain this telegram.
        Magruder: Basically it was meant to point out that your father is dead.
        Henry: He's dead. He's really dead. Oh I don't believe it, he's gone, he was only 85 years old. He's just a kid, he had his whole past behind him, nothing to look forward too, all clear sailing and now he's gone. All those years of working and struggling for millions of dollars, leaving an enormous estate to his son ... me. When do I pick up my fortune?
        Victoria: When you call up a gypsy.
