Who's on FIRST: An ode to triple play

With all of the talk on how hard it is to understand the game, I thought this was appropriate. Also, I thought we needed a "lighter" topic.

Quote:

Abbott: I certainly do.

Costello: Well you know I've never met the guys. So you'll have to tell me their names, and then I'll know who's playing on the team.

Abbott: Oh, I'll tell you their names, but you know it seems to me they give these ball players now-a-days very peculiar names.

Costello: You mean funny names?

Abbott: Strange names, pet names...like Dizzy Dean...

Costello: His brother Daffy.

Abbott: Daffy Dean...

Costello: And their French cousin.

Abbott: French?

Costello: Goofè.

Abbott: Goofè Dean. Well, let's see, we have on the bags, Who's on first, What's on second, I Don't Know is on third...

Costello: That's what I want to find out.

Abbott: I say Who's on first, What's on second, I Don't Know's on third.

Costello: Are you the manager?

Abbott: Yes.

Costello: You gonna be the coach too?

Abbott: Yes.

Costello: And you don't know the fellows' names?

Abbott: Well I should.

Costello: Well then who's on first?

Abbott: Yes.

Costello: I mean the fellow's name.

Abbott: Who.

Costello: The guy on first.

Abbott: Who.

Costello: The first baseman.

Abbott: Who.

Costello: The guy playing...

Abbott: Who is on first!

Costello: I'm asking YOU who's on first.

Abbott: That's the man's name.

Costello: That's who's name?

Abbott: Yes.

Costello: Well go ahead and tell me.

Abbott: That's it.

Costello: That's who?

Abbott: Yes.

PAUSE

Costello: Look, you gotta first baseman?

Abbott: Certainly.

Costello: Who's playing first?

Abbott: That's right.

Costello: When you pay off the first baseman every month, who gets the money?

Abbott: Every dollar of it.

Costello: All I'm trying to find out is the fellow's name on first base.

Abbott: Who.

Costello: The guy that gets...

Abbott: That's it.

Costello: Who gets the money...

Abbott: He does, every dollar. Sometimes his wife comes down and collects it.

Costello: Whose wife?

Abbott: Yes.

PAUSE

Abbott: What's wrong with that?

Costello: Look, all I wanna know is when you sign up the first baseman, how does he sign his name?

Abbott: Who.

Costello: The guy.

Abbott: Who.

Costello: How does he sign...

Abbott: That's how he signs it.

Costello: Who?

Abbott: Yes.

PAUSE

Costello: All I'm trying to find out is what's the guy's name on first base.

Abbott: No. What is on second base.

Costello: I'm not asking you who's on second.

Abbott: Who's on first.

Costello: One base at a time!

Abbott: Well, don't change the players around.

Costello: I'm not changing nobody!

Abbott: Take it easy, buddy.

Costello: I'm only asking you, who's the guy on first base?

Abbott: That's right.

Costello: Ok.

Abbott: All right.

PAUSE

Costello: What's the guy's name on first base?

Abbott: No. What is on second.

Costello: I'm not asking you who's on second.

Abbott: Who's on first.

Costello: I don't know.

Abbott: He's on third, we're not talking about him.

Costello: Now how did I get on third base?

Abbott: Why you mentioned his name.

Costello: If I mentioned the third baseman's name, who did I say is playing third?

Abbott: No. Who's playing first.

Costello: What's on first?

Abbott: What's on second.

Costello: I don't know.

Abbott: He's on third.

Costello: There I go, back on third again!

PAUSE

Costello: Would you just stay on third base and don't go off it.

Abbott: All right, what do you want to know?

Costello: Now who's playing third base?

Abbott: Why do you insist on putting Who on third base?

Costello: What am I putting on third.

Abbott: No. What is on second.

Costello: You don't want who on second?

Abbott: Who is on first.

Costello: I don't know.

Abbott & Costello Together:Third base!

PAUSE

Costello: Look, you gotta outfield?

Abbott: Sure.

Costello: The left fielder's name?

Abbott: Why.

Costello: I just thought I'd ask you.

Abbott: Well, I just thought I'd tell ya.

Costello: Then tell me who's playing left field.

Abbott: Who's playing first.

Costello: I'm not... stay out of the infield! I want to know what's the guy's name in left field?

Abbott: No, What is on second.

Costello: I'm not asking you who's on second.

Abbott: Who's on first!

Costello: I don't know.

Abbott & Costello Together: Third base!

PAUSE

Costello: The left fielder's name?

Abbott: Why.

Costello: Because!

Abbott: Oh, he's centerfield.

PAUSE

Costello: Look, You gotta pitcher on this team?

Abbott: Sure.

Costello: The pitcher's name?

Abbott: Tomorrow.

Costello: You don't want to tell me today?

Abbott: I'm telling you now.

Costello: Then go ahead.

Abbott: Tomorrow!

Costello: What time?

Abbott: What time what?

Costello: What time tomorrow are you gonna tell me who's pitching?

Abbott: Now listen. Who is not pitching.

Costello: I'll break your arm, you say who's on first! I want to know what's the pitcher's name?

Abbott: What's on second.

Costello: I don't know.

Abbott & Costello Together: Third base!

PAUSE

Costello: Gotta a catcher?

Abbott: Certainly.

Costello: The catcher's name?

Abbott: Today.

Costello: Today, and tomorrow's pitching.

Abbott: Now you've got it.

Costello: All we got is a couple of days on the team.

PAUSE

Costello: You know I'm a catcher too.

Abbott: So they tell me.

Costello: I get behind the plate to do some fancy catching, Tomorrow's pitching on my team and a heavy hitter gets up. Now the heavy hitter bunts the ball. When he bunts the ball, me, being a good catcher, I'm gonna throw the guy out at first base. So I pick up the ball and throw it to who?

Abbott: Now that's the first thing you've said right.

Costello: I don't even know what I'm talking about!

PAUSE

Abbott: That's all you have to do.

Costello: Is to throw the ball to first base.

Abbott: Yes!

Costello: Now who's got it?

Abbott: Naturally.

PAUSE

Costello: Look, if I throw the ball to first base, somebody's gotta get it. Now who has it?

Abbott: Naturally.

Costello: Who?

Abbott: Naturally.

Costello: Naturally?

Abbott: Naturally.

Costello: So I pick up the ball and I throw it to Naturally.

Abbott: No you don't, you throw the ball to Who.

Costello: Naturally.

Abbott: That's different.

Costello: That's what I said.

Abbott: You're not saying it...

Costello: I throw the ball to Naturally.

Abbott: You throw it to Who.

Costello: Naturally.

Abbott: That's it.

Costello: That's what I said!

Abbott: You ask me.

Costello: I throw the ball to who?

Abbott: Naturally.

Costello: Now you ask me.

Abbott: You throw the ball to Who?

Costello: Naturally.

Abbott: That's it.

Costello: Same as you! Same as YOU! I throw the ball to who. Whoever it is drops the ball and the guy runs to second. Who picks up the ball and throws it to What. What throws it to I Don't Know. I Don't Know throws it back to Tomorrow, Triple play. Another guy gets up and hits a long fly ball to Because. Why? I don't know! He's on third and I don't give a darn!

Abbott: What?

Costello: I said I don't give a darn!

Abbott: Oh, that's our shortstop.
Enjoy.

Re: Who's on FIRST: An ode to triple play

My kinda who's-on-first skit...

Quote:
Who's On First MODERN

Abbott: Ultimate SuperDuper Computer Store. Can I help you?

Costello: Thanks. I'm setting up a home office in the den, and I'm
thinking of buying a computer.

Abbott: Mac?

Costello: No, the name is Lou.

Abbott: Your computer?

Costello: I don't own a computer. I want to buy one.

Abbott: Mac?

Costello: I told you, my name is Lou.

Abbott: What about Windows?

Costello: Why? Does it get stuffy?

Abbott: Do you want a computer with Windows?

Costello: I don't know. What do I see when I look out the windows?

Abbott: Wallpaper.

Costello: Never mind the windows. I need a computer and software.

Abbott: Software that runs on Windows?

Costello: No, on the computer! I need something I can use to write proposals, track expenses. You know, run a business. What have you got?

Abbott: Office.

Costello: Yeah, for my office. Can you recommend anything?

Abbott: I just did.

Costello: You just did what?

Abbott: Recommended something.

Costello: You recommended something?

Abbott: Yes.

Costello: For my office?

Abbott: Yes.

Costello: Okay, what did you recommend for my office?

Abbott: Office.

Costello: Yes, for my office.

Abbott: Office for Windows.

Costello: I already have an office and it already has windows! Let's say I'm sitting at my computer, and I want to type a proposal. What do I need?

Abbott: Word.

Costello: If I'm writing a proposal, I'm going to need lots of words. But what program do I load?

Abbott: Word.

Costello: What word?

Abbott: The Word in Office.

Costello: The only word in office is office.

Abbott: The Word in Office for Windows.

Costello: Which word in "office for windows?"

Abbott: The Word you get when you click the blue W.

Costello: I'm going to click your big W if you don't give me a straight answer. Let's forget about words for a minute. What do I need if want to watch a movie over the Internet?

Abbott: RealOne.

Costello: Maybe a real movie, maybe a cartoon. What I watch is none of your business. But what do I need to watch it?

Abbott: RealOne.

Costello: If it's a long movie I'll also want to watch reels two, three and four. Can I watch reel four?

Abbott: Of course.

Costello: Great! With what?

Abbott: RealOne.

Costello: Okay, so I'm sitting at my computer and I want to watch a movie. What do I do?

Abbott: You click the blue 1.

Costello: I click the blue one what?

Abbott: The blue 1.

Costello: Is that different from the blue W?

Abbott: Of course it is. The blue 1 is RealOne. The blue W is Word.

Costello: What word?

Abbott: The Word in Office for Windows.

Costello: But there's three words in "office for windows!"

Abbott: No, just one. But it's the most popular Word in the world.

Costello: It is?

Abbott: Yes, although to be fair there aren't many other Words left. It pretty much wiped out all the other Words.

Costello: And that word is the real one?

Abbott: No. RealOne has nothing to do with Word. RealOne isn't even part of Office.

Costello: Never mind; I don't want to get started with that again. But I also need something for bank accounts, loans, and so on. What do you have to help me track my money?

Abbott: Money.

Costello: That's right. What do you have?

Abbott: Money.

Costello: I need money to track my money?

Abbott: No, not really.. It comes bundled with your computer.

Costello: What comes bundled with my computer?

Abbott: Money.

Costello: Money comes bundled with my computer?

Abbott: Exactly. No extra charge.

Costello: I get a bundle of money with my computer at no extra charge? How much money do I get?

Abbott: Just one copy.

Costello: I get a copy of money. Isn't that illegal?

Abbott: No. We have a license from Microsoft to make copies of Money.

Costello: Microsoft can license you to make money?

Abbott: Why not? They own it.

Costello: Well, it's great that I'm going to get free money, but I'll still need to track it. Do you have anything for managing your money?

Abbott: Managing Your Money? That program disappeared years ago.

Costello: Well, what do you sell in its place?

Abbott: Money.

Costello: You sell money?

Abbott: Of course. But if you buy a computer from us, you get it for free.

Costello: That's all very wonderful, but I'll be running a business. Do you have any software for, you know, accounting?

Abbott: Simply Accounting.

Costello: Probably, but it might get a little complicated.

Abbott: If you don't want Simply Accounting, you might try M.Y.O.B.

Costello: M.Y.O.B.? What does that stand for?

Abbott: Mind Your Own Business.

Costello: I beg your pardon?

Abbott: No, that would be I.B.Y.P. I said M.Y.O.B.

Costello: Look, I just need to do some accounting for my home business. You know--accounting? You do it with money.

Abbott: Of course you can do accounting with Money. But you may need more.

Costello: More money?

Abbott: More than Money. Money can't do everything.

Costello: I don't need a sermon! Okay, let's forget about money for the moment. I'm worried that my computer might...what's the word? Crash. And if my computer crashes, what can I use to restore my data?

Abbott: GoBack.

Costello: Okay. I'm worried about my computer smashing and I need something to restore my data. What do you recommend?

Abbott: GoBack.

Costello: How many times do I have to repeat myself?

Abbott: I've never asked you to repeat yourself. All I said was GoBack.

Costello: How can I go back if I haven't even been anywhere? Okay, I'll go back. What do I need to write a proposal?

Abbott: Word.

Costello: But I'll need lots of words to write a proposal.

Abbott: No, you only need one Word-the Word in Office for Windows.

Costello: But there's three words in...Oh, never mind.

Abbott: Hello? Hello? Ahhh, Customers! Why do they always hang up on me?....Oh, well.

Ultimate SuperDuper Computer Store. Can I help you?

Somebody needs to write a Who's on FIRST Robotics skit and have Dean and Woodie perform it at the championship.
