Lights, camera, action.
It's Sam Zander time.
I know what you're thinkin': what's this?
You'll find out soon enough, but yeah,
I'm growing the beard out.
So I'm just here at my parent's house in Malibu.
Deal with it.
Lots of wine boxes 'cause my parents are drunks.
Drunks and fat.
Yeah, I shame my parents, whatever.
This is a message from Sam Zander.
Do you know where your children are?
They're on my website, where you should be.
Yeah, I've been thinkin', I've been thinkin',
I've been thinkin'.
What does it all mean?
I don't know.
Once upon a time there was a boy
who didn't know what he was gonna do
so he did something to change the world.
What are you doing?
Who are you?
Where are we going?
Listen, I want you guys to know I'm about to something
really courageous for you all.
I'm about to do something really bold.
Send me your comments below.
Peace up, bash down, ah.
I'm tellin' ya, Patronies Pizza's goin' under.
Now how would you know that and I don't?
Oh he's probably canned from being
God's loyal opposition.
So tell me your crackpot theory.
You can't see it?
It always get slow around this time of the year.
- You know that... - No, no, no.
It's more than that.
- You're not Jewish. - Why not?
It doesn't work that way.
My step grandmother was a German Jew in the 40s.
That should count double for me, all right?
- It's Saturday. - That's why we're walking.
So, you're working on the Sabbath?

because of one small detail.
We went from two ply to single ply.

You know, I'm drawing the line here.
As a matter of fact, I liked you a lot better when you was practicing Kwanzaa.
That was just a phase.
What do you think?
Listen, this aint no feel good story
about some pizza joint.
It's about the one lie we all believe in.
I'm the happiness without a reason guy.
My philosophy is you don't need reasons to be happy.
You only need reasons to be unhappy.
I know, I know, it sounds unreasonable.
You see, the whole human experience is just
a speck of dust in the blink of time.
And every single one of us is born incomplete.
We spend our whole lives searching for meaning
that fills a little hole in our hearts.
For the eight slices, it's the name tags we wear,
and whether we're doing a good job
portraying our favorite writers who, at some point,
filled that hole in us.
I do wonder what Kerouac would think of all this.
All that really matters is one question:

All right, here we go.
Woo hoo hoo!
America, look at this!
Oh, the things I do for you.
Come on, Oscar.
It's just a shirt.
"Come on, Oscar."

It makes people think.
Well I don't want my customers thinking about anything,
except for how good my pizza is.
So, tell me everything.
How was the campus?
Is college a waste of money?
Only if you're getting a degree in something practical
- like philosophy. - I don't even know
if I'll get in.
Would you do it if it were free?
Then that's your answer.
Yeah, but I'd get like a golden toilet if it was free.

Look at this place.
We're not in Malibu anymore.

a casting director wants to see you again.
This is a good indication that you did something well.
How'd the book tour go?
I didn't even make it out of Brunswick County.
