The clip people refuse to cancel the tv show from The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas (1982)
Melvin P Thorpe is now the biggest attraction at this station.
High ratings. Lots of letters. He doesn't listen to anybody.
Hell, he wants to go national! Wants to be watchdog for the whole US of A.
Love to help, but just like you don't wanna mess with the Chicken Ranch...
...I don't wanna ruffle this old bird's feathers.
Here in Houston, he's becomin' a regular Texas attraction.
Now, wait a minute, Ed Earl.
I'd tread easy on this one. Them TV boys can be mighty powerful.
And mighty useful, if you get my meaning.
Senator, roll call.
Excuse me, Ed Earl. I gotta go. It's that damn bilingual bullshit again.
Let me give you a word of advice from one elected official to another.
Be careful of the box.
What the hell's goin' on? This goddamn Thorpe's got the whole state bamboozled.
This is serious, Ed Earl. You gotta do somethin'.
I intend to.
Deputy Fred, I want you to hold down the fort for a while.
Where you goin'?
I'm gonna take care of that little peckerwood myself.
