Vickie Serves Roadkill for Dinner! | Extreme Cheapskates (Full Episode)

HERE WE GO FOR ROADKILL, HERE WE GO!

Narrator: WHEN IT COMES TO MONEY, THERE ARE THOSE WHO SAVE...

$2.

Vickie: I DON'T THINK SO. THAT'S TOO MUCH.

...THERE ARE THOSE WHO ARE STINGY...

Abdul: I'M GONNA GET THIS CAKE FOR MY WIFE.

WHAT IF YOU WERE TO TAKE THAT FROSTING OFF?

WHAT WOULD IT BE?

JUST A BARE CAKE?

...AND THEN THERE ARE CHEAPSKATES.

WE DON'T HAVE A PHONE.

I WALK OVER TO THE LIBRARY WHEN I WANT TO CALL SOMEBODY.

THEY SET THEIR OWN GAS PRICES...

Abdul: YOU CAN MAKE THAT RIGHT THERE $3.43.

Narrator: ...THEY REDESIGN ROADKILL...

IT LOOKS PRETTY CUTE.

...AND THEY'RE NOT AFRAID TO MAKE A SCENE TO SAVE A BUCK.

$11.64, THEN.

LET'S JUST TAKE 15 CENTS OFF,

AND LET'S JUST CALL IT $11.50.

Narrator: WELCOME TO THE WORLD OF "EXTREME CHEAPSKATES."

MY NAME IS ABDUL, AND I AM AN EXTREME CHEAPSKATE.

I LOVE BEING CHEAP

BECAUSE I LIKE THE ZEROS IN MY BANK ACCOUNT.

I BASICALLY RUN A SUCCESSFUL BUSINESS.

I HAVE A MOBILE FOOD BUSINESS WITH A HOT-DOG CART.

THIS IS MY TRUSTY FRIEND HERE, MR. WIENER.

WHEN I PULL OUT MY WIENER, THAT'S WHEN THE MAGIC HAPPENS.

EVERYBODY WANTS TO TAKE A PICTURE,

EVERYONE'S GOING BANANAS OVER THIS THING.

SO IF I'M A LITTLE SLOW,

I PULL MY WIENER OUT, AND THERE IT GOES.

Shauna: MY HUSBAND WOULD HAGGLE ANYTHING,

ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING -- WHETHER IT'S A NECESSITY

OR SOMETHING THAT I MAY WANT OR HE JUST WANTS,

HE HAGGLES ANYTHING.

IF YOU CAN MAKE THAT RIGHT THERE $3.43 IN THE TANK.

OH, MAN, I DON'T KNOW IF WE CAN DO THAT.

I MEAN...

$3.50.

$3.50, OKAY. WE GOT A DEAL.

ALL RIGHT, MY MAN, TAKE CARE.

SO EMBARRASSING.

Abdul: LET ME GET TWO BIGGER BURGERS

AND TWO CHOCOLATE SHAKES, PLEASE.

CASHIER: $11.64, hot and fresh at the window, thank you.

HI, THERE. YOUR TOTAL IS $11.64.

$11.64?

CORRECT.

LET'S JUST -- HOW ABOUT I JUST GET RID OF THE $.64?

LET'S JUST MAKE IT $11 EVEN.

DID YOU WANT TO TAKE OFF A SHAKE OR A BURGER?

NO, NO, NO. LET'S KEEP EVERYTHING GOING.

OKAY, WELL, UH, YEP, IT WOULD BE $11.64, THEN.

LET'S JUST TAKE 15 CENTS OFF,

AND LET'S JUST CALL IT $11.50.

15 CENTS?

HOW ABOUT I THROW IN SOME EXTRA KETCHUP

AND SALT PACKETS IN YOUR BAG?

HOW ABOUT THAT?

Shauna: MY GOD.

I AM NEVER TAKING YOU OUT ANYWHERE EVER AGAIN.

WHEN IT COMES TO HAGGLING,

I WOULD SAY I HAVE PROBABLY AN 85% SUCCESS RATE.

[ BELL DINGS ]

Shauna: WHEN ABDUL HAGGLES, I THINK TO MYSELF,

"THIS IS ONE MORE STORE THAT, YET AGAIN, I CANNOT GO IN."

YOU CAN'T GO IN THOSE STORES AGAIN.

RIGHT HERE.

HOW MUCH IS IT?

$25 IS A LOT FOR A BAG.

LET ME JUST SEE HOW MUCH WE HAVE SO FAR.

$135.

DON'T EMBARRASS ME.

ALL RIGHT.

ALL RIGHT.

YOU READY TO BE RUNG UP?

YEP, WE ARE.

UM, EXCUSE ME.

I JUST WANT TO TALK TO YOU A LITTLE BIT

ABOUT THE PRICES, YOU KNOW?

LET ME JUST GO ONE BY ONE HERE.

[ CLEARS THROAT ]

DO WE HAVE ANY WIGGLE ROOM WITH THIS JACKET HERE?

YOU KNOW, WE DO TRY TO PRICE OUR THINGS

AT A REALLY GOOD PRICE,

BUT WHAT I COULD DO IS GIVE YOU $10 OFF.

HOW ABOUT ANOTHER $5 OFF OF EACH ITEM?

UM, BECAUSE YOU ARE NEW, I WILL DO 20% OFF.

SO, THAT'S -- SO, WE'RE DOING THE $10 OFF OF EACH ITEM --

NO. I'LL DO A STRAIGHT 20%.

THAT BRINGS IT DOWN TO $327.

SO, WE STARTED AT, WHAT, $4--

$422.

$422. $327.

MM-HMM.

OKAY.

THANKS A LOT, KAT.

[ BELL DINGS ]

SO, IT'S NOT THAT I DON'T HAVE MONEY.

IT'S JUST THAT I DON'T WANT TO SPEND IT ALL.

IT'S MY 10-YEAR ANNIVERSARY'S COMING UP,

AND I WANT TO DO SOMETHING SPECIAL FOR MY WIFE,

BUT I REALLY DON'T WANT TO SPEND A LOT OF MONEY,

SO I GAVE MYSELF A BUDGET OF $25.

SO, I BRING MY GOOD FRIEND RICK ALONG.

HE WANTS TO PUT THIS ANNIVERSARY TOGETHER FOR UNDER $25.

I'M LIKE, "YOU'RE CRAZY.

THERE'S NO WAY YOU'RE GONNA BE ABLE TO DO THIS."

I KNOW WHAT STUFF COSTS. IT'S NOT GONNA HAPPEN.

I DON'T THINK YOU CAN DO IT.

I KNOW I CAN DO IT.

$25.

IT'S NOT GONNA BE A VERY GOOD ONE.

IT'S GONNA BE A GREAT PARTY FOR $25.

I GUARANTEE YOU WE CAN PULL THIS OFF.

RICK REALLY HAS NEVER SHOPPED WITH ME,

SO HE NEVER KNEW HOW I HAGGLE OR KNEW THAT I HAGGLE AT ALL,

SO I'M SURE RICK IS GONNA BE SURPRISED TODAY.

SO, ONE OF MY STOPS IS THE PARTY STORE.

I HAVE A STRATEGY WHEN I GO IN A STORE.

YOU KNOW WHEN YOU GET SOME STUFF THAT'S, LIKE, OUT OF SEASON,

YOU PROBABLY GET A BETTER DEAL.

TO ME, BALLOONS ARE BALLOONS.

SO, THE GUY HAD SOME DISCOUNTED BALLOONS.

IT'S THE THOUGHT THAT COUNTS.

$10 TO $12.

$10 TO $12?

UH-HUH.

[ SIGHS ] HMM.

I-I CAN CHECK AND SEE IF I'VE GOT ANY CLEARANCE BALLOONS.

I'VE GOT A COUPLE LAYING AROUND.

I CAN SEE IF I'VE GOT SOMETHING.

CLEARANCE?

OH, LOOKIT HERE. "ANNIVERSARY SALE."

HEY, THAT'S A GOOD ONE.

YOU SURE YOUR WIFE'S GONNA LIKE THAT, THOUGH?

IT'S FINE. THEY'RE COLORFUL. THEY DO THE JOB.

THAT PRICE RIGHT THERE IS JUST A LITTLE BIT TOO --

TOO -- TOO HIGH FOR ME THERE.

DO YOU HAVE ANY OTHER OPTIONS

THAT MAY NOT BE AS COSTLY AS THAT ONE?

Rick: I'M JUST TOTALLY EMBARRASSED.

WE'RE UP THERE AT THE COUNTER, AND IT'S --

THIS BALLOON IS $2.99,

AND HE KEEPS HAGGLING THIS GUY DOWN.

AND YOU FILL IT UP WITH HELIUM, RIGHT? IS THAT WHAT YOU DO?

UH-HUH, YEAH.

WHAT IF WE DID, LIKE, 3/4 OF HELIUM?

WELL, THEN IT'S PROBABLY NOT GONNA FLOAT. UM...

SO, AIR IS CHEAPER THAN HELIUM.

AIR IS CHEAPER THAN HELIUM.

OKAY, NOW, IF WE DID ALL AIR IN THE BALLOONS,

WHAT ARE WE LOOKING AT?

YOU'D PROBABLY KNOCK A COUPLE DOLLARS OFF,

MAYBE MAKE IT $7 OR $8.

YOU DO SOMETHING A LITTLE SIMPLER.

YEAH.

SOMETHING WITH AIR.

ISN'T OXYGEN FREE?

WE BREATHE OXYGEN EVERY DAY,

BUT I HAVE TO PAY THIS GUY FOR HIS OXYGEN?

NO. I'LL USE MY OWN OXYGEN.

I'M GONNA TAKE THESE FLAT, LIKE THIS.

DO YOU HAVE ANY MORE DISCONTINUED, OR IS THIS...?

I HAD ONE MORE,

BUT IT'S JUST A POLICE CAR, IT LOOKS LIKE.

OH, NOW, THAT'S COOL. [ LAUGHS ]

IT DOESN'T SAY "ANNIVERSARY."

YOU DON'T WANT NO POLICE CAR ON THERE, DO YOU?

IT'S ALL ABOUT LAUGHTER, MAN.

I'M SURE THIS RIGHT HERE WILL STRIKE A FEW LAUGHS.

LET'S THROW THAT IN THERE.

$3.75, WE GOT A DEAL ON THAT.

I CAN'T DO THAT. I JUST GAVE YOU A HECK OF A DEAL ON THOSE.

$2.25, WE GOT A DEAL, GARY.

COME ON, GARY.

HOW ABOUT $2.50?

GARY, IF YOU GO $2.50, WE CAN GO $2.25.

WE CAN GO $2.70 IF WE CAN GO $2.50. [ LAUGHS ]

$2.45. LET'S MEET IN THE MIDDLE.

$2.45. LET'S DO $2.45.

WE SEE ALL KINDS OF CUSTOMERS COME INTO THE DOOR,

BUT I CAN'T SAY AS I'VE EVER SEEN

ANYBODY THAT'S BEEN THAT CHEAP.

SO, I WALK INTO THIS STORE VERY CONFIDENT,

THINKING I'M GONNA GET THIS CAKE FOR MY WIFE.

I DON'T KNOW EXACTLY HOW I'M GONNA DO IT.

I NEED A CAKE MADE TODAY.

HAVING AN ANNIVERSARY PARTY FOR MY WIFE -- ABOUT SIX PEOPLE.

OKAY. WE HAVE OUR 10-INCH ROUND. IT SERVES BETWEEN 10 AND 15.

AND THAT'S $29.99.

WELL, I'M KIND OF ON A BUDGET HERE, YOU KNOW?

AND I'M NOT TRYING TO INSULT YOUR BUSINESS OR ANYTHING,

BUT IS THERE ANYTHING I COULD DO TO PROBABLY MAKE THAT

A LITTLE BIT LESS THAN AT $29.99?

WHAT IF YOU WERE TO TAKE THAT FROSTING OFF?

WHAT WOULD THE CAKE -- WHAT WOULD IT BE?

JUST A BARE CAKE?

THE FROSTING IS ALL INCLUDED IN THAT PRICE,

SO IT'S KIND OF LIKE BUYING A CAR WITHOUT THE WHEELS.

YEAH. WHAT I'M TRYING TO DO IS CUT THIS COST A LOT MORE.

WHAT IS YOUR BUDGET? WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING TO SPEND?

[ SIGH ] $25.

$25. OKAY.

UM, LET'S SEE. WE DO HAVE --

BUT THAT'S FOR THE WHOLE PARTY.

THE WHOLE PARTY?

Narrator: COMING UP...

OOH! ALL THESE BALLOONS.

THIS IS A LOT OF LOVE RIGHT HERE.

HOPEFULLY, SHAUNA'S HAPPY.

All: SURPRISE!

Abdul: MY 10-YEAR ANNIVERSARY'S COMING UP,

AND I WANT TO DO SOMETHING SPECIAL FOR MY WIFE.

WHAT I'M TRYING TO DO IS CUT THIS COST A LOT MORE.

WHAT IS YOUR BUDGET? WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING TO SPEND?

[ SIGHS ] $25.

$25. OKAY.

UM, LET'S SEE. WE DO HAVE --

BUT THAT'S FOR THE WHOLE PARTY.

THE WHOLE PARTY?

LIKE, LET'S SAY -- AND I KNOW THIS IS STRANGE --

WHAT IF I WERE TO BRING SOME OF MY OWN INGREDIENTS?

THERE'S HEALTH CODE AND THAT. YOU CAN'T.

WE HAVE TO PURCHASE EVERYTHING.

SO, I'M THROWING ALL KINDS OF OPTIONS AT THIS LADY,

AND JUST NOTHING'S WORKING.

SOMEHOW, WE NEED TO MAKE THIS CAKE $7.

OKAY. UM...

I DON'T KNOW THAT WE CAN DO THAT.

IT'S A 10-INCH ROUND CAKE. CAN WE MAKE IT 7 INCHES?

WE -- THAT'S REALLY A SIZE WE DON'T DO.

OKAY, SO, HOW ABOUT THIS?

AT THE END OF THE DAY, I'M SURE YOU GUYS DON'T USE

ALL YOUR MATERIALS WITH YOUR FLOUR AND THINGS LIKE THAT,

AND I'M NOT PICKY, SO WHAT IF YOU USE

SOME OF THE LEFTOVER INGREDIENTS AND PUT THAT IN THE CAKE?

[ SIGHS ] YOU'RE KILLING ME HERE.

HEY.

WE DO HAVE ANOTHER OPTION. WE HAVE CAKE POPS.

CAKE POPS. WHAT DOES THAT LOOK LIKE? WHAT IS A CAKE POP?

IT'S LAYERED CAKE, FROSTING, CAKE.

THOSE ARE $1.50 APIECE, SO YOU COULD GET SIX OF THEM.

FROSTING, SPRINKLES -- YOU'RE GONNA GET

EVERYTHING THAT A CAKE WOULD HAVE.

IS THAT MADE WITH LEFTOVER INGREDIENTS?

YES.

OKAY.

COULD WE GET THAT TO ABOUT 75 CENTS?

BUT WE'RE TALKING LEFTOVER INGREDIENTS HERE.

NO, THEY'RE FRESH.

YOU'RE GONNA THROW THEM AWAY ANYWAY.

85 CENTS.

$1.50.

OKAY. 95 CENTS, WE GOT A DEAL.

I-I HAVE TO STICK WITH $1.00.

98 CENTS.

HOW ABOUT 99 CENTS?

99 CENTS. YOU GOT A DEAL.

PERFECT. I'LL GO GET THOSE FOR YOU.

ALL RIGHT.

Abdul: IT'S STILL CAKE. I MEAN, IT'S UNIQUE.

EVERYBODY CAN HAVE THEIR OWN, INDIVIDUAL CAKE POP,

SO I THINK I CAME OUT BETTER THAN THE CAKE.

SO, I LEFT THE STORE WITH EIGHT CAKE POPS.

I APPRECIATE MY WIFE.

YOU KNOW, MOST HUSBANDS DON'T EVEN REMEMBER THEIR ANNIVERSARY.

ALL THESE BALLOONS.

THIS IS A LOT OF LOVE RIGHT HERE, I'LL TELL YOU.

OH.

GOT TO STAY UP FOR AT LEAST TWO, THREE HOURS.

WELL, THE NAPKINS SAY "16," BUT I'M SURE

WE GONNA MAKE IT TO 16 YEARS OF BLISSFUL MARRIAGE, SO, HEY.

SO, MY GUESTS ARRIVE AT THIS PARTY, AND THEY WALK IN,

AND THEIR FIRST REACTION IS, "OKAY."

Woman: I WAS A LITTLE BIT SURPRISED WHEN I CAME IN.

IT WAS DEFINITELY DIFFERENT THAN WHAT RICK WOULD HAVE DONE.

YOU CAN'T DO A PARTY LIKE THIS FOR $25.

HOPEFULLY, SHAUNA'S HAPPY.

All: SURPRISE!

[ LIGHT LAUGHTER ]

HOW ARE YOU GUYS?

LOOK WHAT I'VE DONE FOR YOU.

I AM LOOKING AT WHAT YOU'VE DONE FOR ME.

WHY ARE THE BALLOONS KIND OF HANGING FROM EVERYWHERE?

THAT'S AN INTERESTING STORY. HERE'S THE DEAL WITH THAT.

THEY HAVE A SHORTAGE ON HELIUM,

SO EACH ONE OF THOSE BALLOONS I BLEW.

Rick: YOU KNOW, THIS MIGHT NOT BE THE WAY I WOULD HAVE DID IT

FOR MY WIFE, BUT IT WORKED OUT.

Abdul: MY WIFE WAS A LITTLE SURPRISED AT FIRST,

BUT SHE SETTLED IN, AND I COULD TELL

THAT SHE KNEW THAT I REALLY LOVED HER,

AND IT'S THE THOUGHT THAT COUNTS IN THE END.

Shauna: ABDUL IS A CHEAPSKATE,

BUT, I MEAN, MOST HUSBANDS FORGET ANNIVERSARIES.

ABDUL DID -- HE REMEMBERED IT. HE PLANNED A PARTY.

HE WENT THROUGH A LOT OF WORK

TO GET EVERYTHING ALL PUT TOGETHER.

Woman: AW.

OH.

10 YEARS.

Woman #2: TO 10 YEARS.

Shauna: YES, TO 10 YEARS.

Abdul: 10 YEARS.

Narrator: COMING UP...

HERE WE GO FOR ROADKILL, HERE WE GO!

All: EAT MEAT!

IT LOOKS PRETTY FRESH.

IT LOOKS PRETTY CUTE.

MY PLAN FOR THE RABBIT ROADKILL

IS TO MAKE SOME NICE THINGS FOR MY FAMILY.

HI. MY NAME'S VICKIE SMITH, AND I'M AN EXTREME CHEAPSKATE.

HERE'S MY HUSBAND, JOHN. HE'S A BUTCHER.

WE HAVE 10 CHILDREN.

FIVE STILL LIVE AT HOME.

AND I'VE ALWAYS JUST BEEN A CHEAPSKATE,

AND THE MORE KIDS I HAVE, THE CHEAPER I'VE GOTTEN.

I LIKE THIS ONE.

YOU LIKE THAT ONE? YEAH, THAT'S A CUSTOM ONE.

THIS IS THE LIVING ROOM, AND IT'S PRETTY BARE.

WE DON'T WANT TO GO IN DEBT FOR FURNITURE,

SO WHAT YOU SEE IS WHAT WE GOT.

IT'S DRIVING EVERYBODY CRAZY

'CAUSE WE DON'T HAVE A PHONE HERE.

WE USED TO SPEND ABOUT $120 A MONTH ON OUR PHONE BILL,

AND THAT'S JUST WAY TOO MUCH.

IF I NEED TO GET AHOLD OF SOMEBODY,

I JUST WALK OVER TO THE LIBRARY.

IT'S LESS THAN A BLOCK AWAY.

ALL OF MY CHILDREN HAVE ALWAYS WORN HAND-ME-DOWNS,

BUT EVERY LITTLE GIRL WANTS NEW CLOTHES.

SARIAH IS NO EXCEPTION TO THE RULE.

MOM!

WHAT DO YOU NEED?

I DON'T HAVE ANY CLOTHES.

THERE'S A DRESS.

THAT'S HORRIBLE-LOOKING. IT'S, LIKE, FOR A FOUR-YEAR-OLD.

IT'S SO CUTE.

NO, IT'S NOT.

WILL YOU TRY IT ON?

THERE'S NOTHING WRONG WITH USED CLOTHING.

MOM.

WELL, I THINK IT'S CUTE.

DO YOU LIKE ANY PART OF IT?

WOULD YOU LIKE -- WE COULD MAKE A SKIRT WITH THIS PART?

NO.

WHAT SHOULD WE DO?

WE SHOULD, LIKE, BURN IT.

I KNOW SARIAH'S 13.

SHE'S VERY SELF-CONSCIOUS ABOUT MAKING SURE

SHE'S NOT DIFFERENT FROM THE REST OF THE GIRLS.

[ DOORBELL RINGS ]

HEY.

HEY.

IF YOU HAD A PHONE, I WOULDN'T HAVE

TO WALK OVER HERE ALL THE TIME LIKE A WEIRDO.

[ LAUGHS ]

SO...

WHATCHA WEARING?

[ Laughing ] A DRESS.

OH. OKAY. SO, DO YOU WANT TO GO SHOPPING?

'CAUSE I WANT SOME NEW CLOTHES.

SO I WAS WONDERING IF YOU WANTED TO GO WITH ME.

SURE. LET ME ASK MY MOM.

I VERY RARELY GIVE MY KIDS MONEY TO GO SHOPPING.

IF I WERE TO JUST GIVE THEM $20,

THAT TAKES ME TOTALLY OUT OF THE PICTURE.

UM, SO, CAN I GO SHOPPING WITH ALLY?

TELL YOU WHAT. WHY DON'T I GO WITH YOU GUYS?

AND THEN WE CAN FIGURE OUT HOW MUCH YOU REALLY NEED

WHEN WE GET THERE, OKAY?

OKAY.

I REFUSE TO SPEND BIG BUCKS ON CLOTHES.

I'M GONNA CHANGE FIRST.

YEAH.

Vickie: I DON'T MIND TAKING SARIAH AND ALLY

TO THE LOCAL FLEA MARKET TO LOOK FOR CLOTHES.

UH...

THIS LOOKS LIKE STUFF MY DEAD GRANDMA WOULD WEAR.

[ LAUGHS ]

THIS STILL HAS THE TAG ON IT.

THAT'S 'CAUSE IT'S SO UGLY. NO ONE WORE IT.

THAT'S SOMETHING YOUR MOM WOULD GET YOU.

NO.

NO.

LET'S PUT THOSE BACK.

DO YOU LIKE YELLOW?

YEAH.

Vickie: I AVOID BUYING ANYTHING NEW.

IF I CAN GET IT USED,

I'D MUCH RATHER PAY 75% OFF OR LESS.

FIND ANYTHING?

YEAH, A COUPLE THINGS.

SO, DISPLAY.

OKAY, SO, I NEED ALL THESE.

I WANT THESE SHOES.

HOW MUCH ARE SHOES? [ GROANS ]

THIS SHIRT. IT'S ONLY $2.

$2 IS A LOT.

AT A GARAGE SALE, IT WOULD BE LIKE 25 CENTS.

SO, I WANT TO MAKE SURE HOW MUCH YOU LIKE IT.

I LIKE IT A LOT.

WELL, LET'S SEE. $2, $4, $6, $8, $10.

I DON'T THINK SO. THAT'S TOO MUCH.

SO, WHICH IS YOUR FAVORITE SHIRT?

THE YELLOW ONE.

OKAY. TELL YOU WHAT. WHY DON'T WE GET THIS ONE?

OKAY.

I FEEL SO GOOD WHEN I SAVE MONEY.

HEY, YOU READY?

I HOPE SO.

I KICK MYSELF WHEN I COULD HAVE SAVED MONEY AND I DON'T.

YOU'RE WELCOME. HAVE A GREAT AFTERNOON.

[ BELL DINGS ]

WHEN I HAVE TO COME UP WITH BIRTHDAY OR CHRISTMAS PRESENTS,

WE DO A LOT OF HOMEMADE.

John: VICKIE CAN MAKE GLOVES AND LITTLE HATS AND THINGS,

AND WE CAN SAVE MONEY BY USING THEM FOR GIFTS.

OKAY, LET'S DO IT!

IF I HAVE A PROJECT THAT REQUIRES REAL FUR

AND I WAS TO GO OUT AND BUY THAT FUR FROM THE STORE,

IT'S EXORBITANTLY PRICED.

SO...

HERE WE GO FOR ROADKILL, HERE WE GO!

All: EAT MEAT!

HERE WE GO FOR ROADKILL...

FURS ARE EXPENSIVE, BUT IF YOU CAN FIND IT ALONG THE ROAD,

IT CAN BE A LOT CHEAPER.

IT SAVES ME HUNDREDS OF DOLLARS.

SOMETHING'S FLUFFY.

IT'S A FOX.

IT'S KIND OF WEIRD TO GO FIND ANIMALS ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD

THAT PROBABLY HAVE BUGS IN THEM.

THIS ONE'S NOT GONNA WORK. I THINK WE'D BETTER GO.

I DON'T NEED EVERY PIECE OF ROADKILL ON THE ROAD.

I NEED SOMETHING USABLE.

John: MY MISSION IS TO FIND GOOD ROADKILL ON THE ROAD,

AND IF IT'S FRESH, FRESH, FRESH AND GOOD, I'M A BUTCHER.

I HAVE NO PROBLEM WHATSOEVER

EATING SOMETHING THAT'S FRESH AND GOOD.

WELL, OUR LAST FIND WAS OFF ON A SIDE ROAD.

WHAT DO YOU SEE?

Joshua: WHAT IS IT?

IT'S A PRETTY GOOD ONE, YOU GUYS.

Narrator: COMING UP...

I'VE BEEN WAITING ALL DAY FOR THIS.

HOW ABOUT SOME BARBECUED RABBIT?

Yoshi: THERE GOES EASTER.

[ LAUGHTER ]

SOMEBODY KILLED THE EASTER BUNNY.

Vickie: WHEN I GO TO FIND ROADKILL, IT'S TO LOOK FOR

SOME HIGH-QUALITY FUR THAT I CAN USE FOR SOME CRAFT PROJECTS.

THE OTHER ROADKILL THAT WE FOUND WAS A BUNNY.

LOOKS PRETTY FRESH.

IT LOOKS PRETTY CUTE.

John: THE PELT WAS STILL GOOD.

THE LEGS WERE STILL GOOD, AND SO THAT WAS QUITE A FIND.

SHE'LL MAKE SOMETHING OUT OF IT.

MAYBE SHE'LL MAKE ME A WALLET ONE OF THESE TIMES.

MY PLAN FOR THE RABBIT ROADKILL IS TO MAKE SOME NICE THINGS

FOR MY FAMILY AND FOR OUR NEIGHBORS.

I'M GONNA MAKE THESE CUTE LITTLE PURSES

BECAUSE KIDS REALLY LIKE THEM.

NICE.

WE'RE GONNA SEW IT,

AND THEN WE'LL FLIP IT INSIDE OUT,

AND YOU WON'T EVEN SEE THE EDGES.

IT'LL JUST BE THIS CUTE LITTLE FUR BAG.

I'M EXCITED TO HAVE MY NEIGHBORS TAMMY AND YOSHI FOR DINNER.

TONIGHT, WE'RE SERVING BARBECUED RABBIT

AND A TOSSED SALAD

MADE WITH FLOWERS THAT WE'VE GATHERED.

WHY DO WE NEED THESE?

Vickie: WE'RE GONNA MAKE A REALLY PRETTY SALAD FOR DINNER, OKAY?

LET'S GO FIND SOMETHING TASTY-LOOKING.

Vickie: IT'S SO FUN TO BE ABLE TO WALK OUTSIDE

AND KNOW WHAT YOU CAN PICK AND PUT IN YOUR SALAD,

AND IT DOESN'T COST YOU A CENT.

SMELL THIS ONE. THIS ONE DOESN'T SMELL TASTY.

EW, HUH? GROSS.

WHY DON'T WE JUST BUY SOMETHING FROM THE STORE?

'CAUSE IT COSTS MONEY, AND WE'RE CHEAP.

I NEVER EAT THESE FLOWERS.

BUT THEY TASTE GOOD.

IT TASTES GROSS. I JUST TRIED IT.

WELL, YOU SHOULDN'T REALLY BE EATING IT UNLESS IT'S WASHED

'CAUSE THE COWS CAME THROUGH HERE.

EW.

EW.

YEAH, EXACTLY.

IT'S A GOURMET SALAD AT A ROCK-BOTTOM PRICE -- FREE.

John: WE'RE GONNA HAVE OUR NEXT-DOOR NEIGHBORS

OVER FOR DINNER TONIGHT.

DON'T YOU LOVE HOW ALL OUR PLATES MATCH?

WHY DON'T THEY MATCH?

I'M NOT GONNA BUY A WHOLE NEW SET.

WE'VE GOT PLENTY OF DISHES.

YOU GOT IT.

WHEN I INVITED TAMMY AND YOSHI,

I JUST ASKED THEM TO BRING THEIR OWN CHAIRS.

I GOT IT!

YOSHI, LET'S PUT YOU RIGHT NEXT TO SARIAH.

THEN WE'LL PUT TAMMY, AND THEN WHAT'S YOUR NAME?

CODY.

CODY, LET'S PUT YOU NEXT.

I GUESS WE MIGHT AS WELL DIG IN.

I'VE BEEN WAITING ALL DAY FOR THIS.

HOW ABOUT SOME BARBECUED RABBIT THERE, YOSHI?

THERE GOES EASTER.

[ LAUGHTER ]

SOMEBODY KILLED THE EASTER BUNNY.

TERRIBLE. I CAN'T EAT IT.

I'M GONNA TRY SOME OF YOUR SALAD.

WHAT DO YOU HAVE IN HERE?

THERE'S CLOVER AND SAGE BLOSSOMS.

IS THIS A REGULAR THING FOR YOU, TOO, IS TO PICK...

OTHER PEOPLE'S YARD TRIMMINGS.

...WEEDS?

[ LAUGHTER ]

THEY WERE OUR YARD TRIMMINGS.

IT WAS WEEDS, ALL WEEDS -- DANDELIONS, FLOWERS, CLOVERS,

THINGS THAT YOU JUST DON'T NORMALLY EAT,

AT LEAST IN MY WORLD.

OKAY.

[ LAUGHTER ]

OKAY, I HAVE A LITTLE SURPRISE FOR YOU.

CAN YOU TAKE --

THESE ARE ALL THINGS WE MADE OUT OF ROADKILL.

YOU TAKE ONE OF THOSE. THAT'S FOR YOU.

I WANT TO TAKE ONE.

AND ONE FOR YOU.

OH, CORBETT.

CORBETT, YOU DON'T NEED THAT.

IT'S JUST NOT MY THING, PICKING UP ROADKILL.

Yoshi: I THOUGHT IT WAS KIND OF NEAT

'CAUSE RABBIT FOOTS HAVE ALWAYS BEEN SOMETHING I HAD

WHEN I WAS A LITTLE KID.

MADE IT AND THEN KEEP IT -- MAYBE IT'S BETTER LUCK.

AND WOULD YOU LIKE ONE?

AND, TAMMY, WOULD YOU LIKE ONE?

SURE.

John: OH, THAT'S NICE.

AFTER VICKIE BROUGHT OUT THE GIFTS

FROM THE RABBIT ROADKILL, I WAS KIND OF SHOCKED.

WE USE ALL PARTS OF THE RABBIT.

I CAN SEE THAT.

IT'S PRETTY COOL.

I DON'T THINK YOU MISSED A THING.

YEAH, WE'RE CHEAP.

[ LAUGHTER ]
