The SituationLittle Friends
Jim and Lynda met in the 8th grade. "I knew I wanted to marry her then," says Jim, a school teacher. They settled down and live an otherwise comfortable life in Gilbertsville, Pennsylvania. But there is one hitch: Jim's friend. Little friends. As in ventriloquist's dummies—a dozen of them scattered throughout the house. They're propped on tables, sitting on furniture, waiting around corners.
"They're creepy to me," Lynda complains. "They scare me."
Jim can see her point. "I see that some of them are more sinister than others. But they're loveable."
"He's not loveable," says Lynda, pointing to a pie-eyed dummy. "Teddy bears are loveable."
Jim defends his little friends. "I wish you could be more supportive," he tells her.
"This whole thing doesn't make any sense," offers one of his dummies. Lynda nods.
DID THE REF MAKE THE RIGHT CALL?
The panel is unanimous: the dummies are downright disturbing. Jimmy Fallon notices that one of them looks rather like him and another bears an uncanny resemblance to Clay Aiken. Another resembles Gilbert Gottfried. "They've got to go in their own area," Jimmy declares, siding with Lynda.
Kirstie is a bit more sympathetic to Jim. "He's been collecting these for a while. It's not like this sprang up overnight. She knows what's up."
Sheryl's on Jim's side. It's not such a horrible hobby, but he should keep them somewhere separate.
Tom makes his call. "Jim, it's an interesting hobby," he says trying to cushion the oncoming blow. But these little people are out of control. It's time to put them away. Lynda, you win!"
