Bit: Emotional Scientist
Episode: 210- King Dinosaur.
(Joel is wearing a white lab coat, cardboard mustache, and large white wig. Organ music starts.)
Tom (voiceover): And now, it's time for another exciting episode of "Emotional Scientist," starring Joel Robinson
as Albert Einstein.
Joel (with awful accent): Oh, let's see here. I've almost got the theory of relativity...oh,
that just makes me so sad when I...(normal voice) I can't do this, you guys. (takes off mustache) (Tom enters from
Joel: I don't--
Tom: Joel, what's the matter? (Crow enters from
Joel: For one thing, I can't do Albert Einstein--I
sound like an East Indian. And, uh, I don't see why I always have to be the one dressing up in the dumb costumes.
I don't get it. (takes off wig)
Crow: What's the matter with you? Don't you
know what it is to put on that greasepaint, don that theatrical mask, (starts choking up) get up on that stage
and, and sing and dance your dear little heart out? (sobs)
Joel: Crow, you are becoming so camp! You make
me want to throw up! Now listen, if you guys want to go on with your little irreverent sketches and keep donning
your little costumes and makeup, go right ahead. But just count me out of it, all right?
Tom: Oh, now wait. At least you could hold up
the title card for us. Geez. (Joel holds it up) Okay, c'mon, clear it, people. We've got a sketch to do.
Crow: Oh, okay. (Tom and Crow move off camera.
Organ music starts again.)
Tom: And now it's time for another exciting
episode of "Emotional Scientist," starring Crow as Madam Curie. (Crow enters from stage left, wearing
a grey wig.)
Crow (awful accent): Well, I should be discovering the theory of radium pretty soon, I think. And then I'm going to go to
that Jerry Lewis film festival. Oh, what's the use? I'm having a bad day. Nobody understands my needs. It's that
time of... (normal voice) oh geez. You know, Joel's right. I can't even do a good accent on this thing either.
I...oh! Get this thing off me. I quit!
Tom: Crow...he's right! You're right! We've
been fools to think that robots can be actors. We're trapped in outer space! We couldn't even go to New York and
study with Uta Hagen if we wanted to!
Crow: Uta...Hagen... (Both start sobbing.)
Joel: Ohhh....oh, c'mon, you guys. Please don't
be like that. I can't stand to see you so upset like this. I'm sorry. I know--okay, I realize that these sketches
are important to you. I'm sorry, okay?
Tom: Gee, Joel. You know, it never ceases to
amaze me how you continue to take personal inventory, and then when you're wrong, you promptly admit it.
Joel: Oh, thanks a lot. I like you guys a lot
too. And I know two robots and a human that have a sketch to do.
Tom: Oh boy! (clears throat, organ music starts)
And now it's time for another exciting episode of "Emotional Scientist," starring Joel Robinson as Jerry
Lewis, Crow as Dean Martin, and Tom Servo as Enrico Fermi. (All start talking over each other in character voices.)
