Voice-over: Exclusive.
Fred Armisen: I'm just tired of getting my
butt kicked from both sides
Fred Armisen: on this.
Maya Rudolph: It'll be alright. Are you
smoking cigarettes in there?
Fred Armisen: Nope. These banks and the
credit card
Fred Armisen: companies, they're ripping
off the people,
Fred Armisen: almost no regulations.
I'm trying to make a
Fred Armisen: consumer agency to
protect the families,
Fred Armisen: and the lobbyists and
Senator Shelby act like I
Fred Armisen: want to change the national
anthem to I Got 99 Problems
Fred Armisen: and a Bitch Ain't One.
Maya Rudolph: Go to bed sweetheart.
Your heart will tell you what to do.
Fred Armisen: Okay.
Maya Rudolph: Come here, snugglebear.
(rumbling is heard)
Darrell Hammond: Boo. Boo. I'm the ghost
of Dick Cheney.
Will Ferrell: Relax, it's just us.
Darrell Hammond: Man, that Michelle has
got some legs on her.
Fred Armisen: How'd you two get
in here?
Will Ferrell: The security code is still 1,
, 3, 4 from when I was
Will Ferrell: Pres. Only took me five times
to remember it.
Darrell Hammond: We heard you were tossing and
turning over whether to
Darrell Hammond: push for federal regulations, so we're here to give you
Darrell Hammond: some advice.
(Will is making a light saber
sound in the background)
Will Ferrell: Yeah, what he said.
Fred Armisen: You two are the ones who
stripped out all the regulations.
Fred Armisen: Why would I want advice
from you?
Darrell Hammond: Dude, it was the 90's.
People did all kinds of crazy things.
Will Ferrell: Yeah, I'm still waiting for a bunch of e-toys that never
Will Ferrell: showed up. Besides, when I put the Iraq War on my credit
Will Ferrell: card, I never dreamed I'd be paying 28% in interest rates.
Will Ferrell: It's astronomical.
(toilet flushes)
Dana Carvey: Yeah, well, if you had listened to me, you would
Dana Carvey: have raised taxes.
Will Ferrell: Yeah, and then I would've
had one term.
Dana Carvey: Yeah, that second term of
yours was a real victory lap,
Dana Carvey: wasn't it dubbers?
Now listen Borat.
Fred Armisen: It's Barack.
Dana Carvey: Sorry, but you gotta listen
to these fellows Babar.
Dana Carvey: What you gotta understand is
that we got a regulatory
Dana Carvey: issue here. We gotta regulate
that or we're gonna get more
Dana Carvey: bubbles. Gonna get bigger,
larger, then pop, money goes
Dana Carvey: to the weasels. Sometime you
gotta do the right thing.
Dana Carvey: You gotta take those approval
rating there and screw em. Ratings.
Dana Carvey: Screw em. Right?
Will Ferrell: I'll take them to
nasty town.
Dan Aykroyd: Well I know a thing or two
about doing what's right and
being unpopular.
Will Ferrell: Oh great, if it isn't Mr.
Let's Get the Party Started.
Will Ferrell: What do you say we open up a
bag of malaise potato chips.
(Everyone laughs)
Dan Aykroyd: Mr. President, you have to
establish the Consumer
Dan Aykroyd: Finance Protection Agency.
People are tired of being
Dan Aykroyd: ripped off by credit card
companies and banks.
Dan Aykroyd: I never could get
this right.
Jim Carrey: There you go, again.
(sound of a crowd cheering)
Dan Aykroyd: This can't be! You're dead. I
saw them lower your coffin
Dan Aykroyd: into the ground.
Jim Carrey: Well, I am dead, but I've
come back as a spirit to help
Jim Carrey: Mr. Reach Across the Aisles.
Here grow a pair.
(everyone laughs)
Jim Carrey: Now, listen up. You son of a
Jim Carrey: I went up against Tip O'Neill
with nothing but a psychic
Jim Carrey: oracle and these
pendulous balls.
Jim Carrey: But, I pushes through the competition.
Jim Carrey: I clobbered everybody, and I
took down that wall.
Chevy Chase: Now grab those eight balls
and push the
Chevy Chase: Consumer Protection
Agency through.
Chevy Chase: Betty, did you change
the locks again?
Chevy Chase: Live from New York...
Dana Carvey: This isn't Live.
This is
Chevy Chase: Well, the only way to stop
these corrupt banks and credit
Chevy Chase: card companies is to
pardon Richard Nixon.
Dan Aykroyd: He means, you gotta get that
Consumer Protection Act through Congress.
Chevy Chase: Jimmy Carter?
You're dead.
Dan Aykroyd: No, Gerry.
You're dead.
Chevy Chase: Oh.
Jim Carrey: Well, I'm dead, but I'm going
to be a guest on Dancing With
Jim Carrey: The Stars this season.
Fred Armisen: Okay.
Jim Carrey: I hope this little talk
has helped.
Fred Armisen: So, what you're saying is
that I should clean up this
Fred Armisen: mess that you all created.
Take on the banks and all
Fred Armisen: their trillions of dollars.
How is this helpful?
Jim Carrey: It's a bitch. It's a bitch,
but, as George Washington
Jim Carrey: once said to John Adams, tag
you're it.
(they all laugh)
Jim Carrey: Grow some nuts for
the Gipper.
Dana Carvey: It's gonna be hard, never
gonna be easy.
Dan Aykroyd: Nothing wrong with one
term Barack.
Will Ferrell: Just do me a solid and don't
tell Cheney I was here.
Chevy Chase: Am I dead or alive?
Darrell Hammond: Can I be Ambassador
to Cancun?
Maya Rudolph: What is it, honey?
Fred Armisen: I'm gonna make a pot of
coffee. Wake the Cabinet.
Fred Armisen: I've got work to do.
Fred Armisen: Oh, and honey...
Maya Rudolph: Nicorette's in the
sock drawer.
Fred Armisen: Sweet.
Ron Howard: (Voiceover) The banks have
billions of dollars to spend to
Ron Howard: get their message out, but
your speech is free. Contact
Ron Howard: your senators about the CFPA.
Nothing annoys them more than
Ron Howard: having to do their jobs.
