The clip buying a fern from The Lonely Guy (1984) with Steve Martin
you see, you buy a lot of these, you scatter them around,
and nobody'll notice you don't have enough furniture.
Hey, this one looks nice.
No, you don't want that, larry. That's got buds.
You don't want to watch life blossoming, while yours...
isn't, yeah. Hey, how about a fern?
Great. But, larry, don't call 'em ferns. Call 'em guys.
Yeah, make 'em feel like your buddy.
You can watch football games together.
Watch football games with a plant?
Hey, you never know.
Well, i'll just take this guy right here.
Uh-huh, uh-huh, good. I could use one myself.
Want a sip?
No. I'm full.
What'd you eat? Uh-huh.
Uh, a tuna sandwich.
How often do you have to water something like this?
Oh, just once a week. But always stay with it a couple of minutes.
It doesn't like to drink alone, seriously.
Have you got your towels yet?
I forgot all about that.
I can get 'em wholesale, if you don't mind other people's initials.
They get 'em from divorced couples.
No, i just want to get dry...
that's kind of sad, isn't it? I don't want to get depressed every time i shower.
You'll probably be depressed anyway.
Well, i gotta go. I gotta go get some furniture.
Hey, doesn't your guy want to say good-bye to my guy?
Say good-bye to your friend.
Still a little shy.
Bye-bye. Bye-bye. Bye-bye. Bye-bye.
