Nate Kurtzman: The government doesn't know from shit. They integrate the golf courses in '51, and schools in '54. Where's their priorities?
Louie: They integrated the cricket field in Clifton Park back in '50. Can't find a colored person who plays cricket.
Pete, Nate's Assistant: I beg to differ. That was part of the separate but equal ruling. The coloreds could only play cricket on Tuesdays.
Louie: You can't find a colored person who wants to play cricket on Tuesday, Wednesday, or Kiss-My-Tuchis-Day.
Charlie, Nate's Assistant: For that matter, you can't find a white person who wants to play cricket. What is it with that game? It makes no sense. How many players do you need there? What do they use, a mallet or something?
Pete, Nate's Assistant: Isn't that the one with the hoops?
Charlie, Nate's Assistant: That's croquet.
Louie: Nah, croquet is something you eat.
Nate Kurtzman: Everything is something you eat.
