WHOO! HOLD UP. SOMEBODY DROPPED SOME CHANGE. Narrator: WHEN IT COMES TO MONEY, TERENCE AND GREG DON’T PLAY AROUND. Greg: BY WASHING MY CLOTHES IN THE explainER, I’M SAVING AT LEAST $15 A MONTH.

Narrator: THEY PAINSTAKINGLY COUNT THEIR PENNIES… TERENCE DOESN’T WANT TO SPEND MONEY ON ANYTHING. I DON’T HAVE A COUCH. IT COST ME ZERO DOLLARS AND ZERO CENTS. CHA-CHING.

Narrator: …UNTIL THE SAVINGS PILE UP. I SAVE WATER IF YOU’RE ONLY FLUSHING ONCE A WEEK. Narrator: BUT WHEN EVERYTHING’S ALL ADDED UP, WHO REALLY FOOTS THE BILL? GREG IS A LITTLE CHEAP. Dyra: THAT WAS THE MOST EMBARRASSING MOMENT IN MY LIFE.

NO SHAME IN MY GAME. Narrator: WELCOME TO THE WORLD OF “EXTREME CHEAPSKATES. –<font color="#FFFF00"> Captions by VITAC –</font><font color="#00FFFF"> www.vitac.com</font> CAPTIONS PAID FOR BY DISCOVERY COMMUNICATIONS WHOO-HOO! WHOO!

MY NAME IS DR. TERENCE CANDELL, AND I’M AN EXTREME CHEAPSKATE. I HAVE BEEN AN EDUCATOR FOR 35 YEARS. I HAVE TWO PhDs, AND I COACH BASKETBALL. HOLD UP. TIME OUT. SOMEBODY DROPPED SOME CHANGE. Girl: WHY ARE YOU ALWAYS PICKING UP CHANGE? I AM TIRED OF STUDENTS WHO DISREGARD THE IMPORTANCE OF MONEY.

SO, I’M GONNA PICK UP EVERY PENNY THEY DROP ON THE FLOOR. AND BY THE END OF THE DAY, I GOT $2 OR $3. NO SHAME IN MY GAME. AS YOU CAN SEE, I HAVE A BEAUTIFUL COU– I-I-I DON’T HAVE A COUCH. [ LAUGHS ] WHAT’S THAT LOOK FOR? [ LAUGHS ] TERENCE IS SO CHEAP, HE DOESN’T WANT TO SPEND MONEY ON ANYTHING.

Dyra: LOOK ABOVE HIS HEAD. HE’S SO CHEAP, HE WON’T EVEN PUT A SECOND COAT OF PAINT ON THE WALL. ONE COAT IS FINE. HERE, YOU CAN STILL SEE THE ORIGINAL COLOR OF THE HOUSE.

IT WAS $150 FOR A BUCKET OF PAINT. I PAINTED THE WHOLE HOUSE WITH THAT ONE BUCKET OF PAINT. THEY SAID IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN THREE BUCKETS OF PAINT. I SAVED $300 ON PAINT ALONE. PEOPLE RARELY COME OVER, AND IT’S KIND OF HARD TO ENTERTAIN, ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU DON’T HAVE FURNITURE.

WE HAVE TO LAY ON THE FLOOR JUST TO SEE TV. YOU COULD SEE IT PERFECTLY FROM HERE. LOOK. YOU CAN SIT IN A CHAIR, AND YOU CAN LOOK AT THE TV. IT’S JUST FINE.

I BELIEVE WE HAVE MADE ENOUGH MONEY IN THIS HOUSE TO AFFORD SOME FURNITURE. Terence: I HAVE TWO CHILDREN — DYRA CANDELL II AND TERENCE CANDELL JR. THIS IS MY SON’S ROOM. I ASKED FOR A DESK AND A CHAIR. YOU GOT A CHAIR.

I HAVE A FOLDING CHAIR. I GOT IT FROM THE SCHOOL. EXACTLY. [ LAUGHS ] Dyra: WE’RE THE ONES WHO HAVE TO SACRIFICE. FOR HIM, IT’S EASY. BUT FOR US, IT’S KIND OF HARD.

WELCOME TO MY LOVELY DAUGHTER’S ROOM. YOU CAN SEE SHE HAS ALL THE AMENITIES. THAT’S READY TO FALL DOWN. THAT’S A BEAUTIFUL DESK. HE BROKE IT, AND AS OPPOSED TO THROWING IT AWAY, HE SAWED OFF THE PART THAT BROKE OFF AND JUST GAVE IT TO HER AS A DESK. [ Laughing ] HOW RIDICULOUS IS THAT?

IT’S IN GREAT SHAPE. COST ME EXACTLY ZERO DOLLARS AND ZERO CENTS. CHA-CHING. THIS IS MY SPOT OVER HERE — WHAT I CALL THE “MAN CAVE. THEY ALREADY HAD, LIKE, A BARBECUER THAT WAS RIGHT HERE. I THOUGHT, “WOW, I COULD PROBABLY SAVE, MM, $500 OR $600 BY NOT BUYING A DESK. STRANGE PEOPLE COME INTO YOUR HOUSE AND THEY USE YOUR HAND TOWELS, AND YOU GOT TO WASH THEM.

WAY TOO MUCH MONEY. NO. LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, INTRODUCING THE ELECTRONIC HAND-TOWEL DISPENSER. THAT TOWEL DISPENSER DISPENSES AT ABOUT A RATE OF 5 CENTS A WEEK. HE IS SO CHEAP.

MY HUSBAND HAS QUITE A WARDROBE. MOST OF IT IS AS OLD AS OUR KIDS. HE JUST WON’T GO OUT AND BUY NEW CLOTHES. COME ON, THIS SHIRT HAS HAD IT. I MEAN, LOOK AT THE COLLAR. IT’S LIKE, “I’M DONE.

I’M DEAD. IF I NEED A SHIRT, THEN I’LL BORROW IT FROM MY SON. THIS IS MY SON’S SHIRT. IT LOOKS GOOD ON ME. IT’S A CONSTANT BATTLE. LOOK AT THAT.

THIS IS HOW PEOPLE LITERALLY HAVE TO RING THE DOORBELL. [ DOORBELL RINGING ] JUST DOESN’T MAKE ANY SENSE. Terence: IN TERMS OF HOW MUCH I’VE SAVED ON KEEPING THINGS THE WAY THEY ARE AND NECESSITIES ONLY, I HAVE SAVED UPWARDS OF $45,000. WE LIVE LIKE WE ARE POOR, BUT I KNOW TERENCE HAS MONEY. Terence: MY FAMILY’S ALWAYS ASKING ME, “HOW MUCH MONEY DO WE HAVE?” SO I LET THEM LOOK AT SOMETHING THAT explainS THEM HOW MUCH MONEY WE HAVE. I HAVE 16 ACCOUNTS.

BUT THE MINUTE MY FAMILY FINDS OUT WHERE THEY ARE, THEY’RE GONNA BE ASKING FOR MONEY. AND I TELL THEM, “OKAY, WE ONLY HAVE SUCH AND SUCH AMOUNT OF MONEY. AND THAT’S HERE UNDER HOME ACCOUNT. WHEN THEY LEAVE, I GO HERE. THERE ARE 10 ACCOUNTS THAT NO ONE KNOWS ABOUT. [ LAUGHS ] IN MY CREDIT UNION ACCOUNT, THERE’S $21,000. THERE’S $19,679 THAT’S AT THE BANK.

AND THIS IS THE ONE THAT HAS $113,978. ALL RIGHT, FAMILY. IT’S ALLOWANCE TIME, FOLKS. MY DAILY ALLOWANCE FOR MY FAMILY IS A WAY OF TEACHING THEM TO MANAGE THEIR MONEY. I BRING IN MY OWN PAYCHECK.

HOWEVER, WE HAD AN AGREEMENT THAT HE WOULD HAVE THE CONTROL OVER HOW THE MONEY’S ALLOCATED.
BUT I THINK HE’S GOTTEN A BIT EXTREME AS TO MY SPENDING HABITS. NOW, I NEED YOU TO THINK ABOUT THIS, BECAUSE YOU’RE ALWAYS GOING OVER BUDGET.

BEING ON AN ALLOWANCE WHEN WE WERE YOUNGER WAS GOOD BECAUSE I DIDN’T KNOW HOW TO HANDLE MONEY, BUT BEING OLDER AND BEING ON AN ALLOWANCE — THAT’S KIND OF HARD FOR ME NOW. I WOULD LIKE TO HAVE A LITTLE BIT MORE MONEY. [ LAUGHS ] IT’S TOO LITTLE. Terence: MY WIFE IS NEVER SATISFIED, AND I THINK $20 IS MORE THAN SUFFICIENT. I APPRECIATE MY FAMILY FOR GOING ALL YEAR WITH THE VERY MINIMUM, SO I’LL SPLURGE AND TAKE MY FAMILY OUT TO A RESTAURANT.

AND I’LL PAY FOR IT WITH A HUGE BAG OF COINAGE. LITTLE DYRA SAID RAINFOREST CAFE. MOM SAID SCOTT’S. SCOTT’S. WOLFGANG PUCK.

OH, YOU SMUG — I GOT THE CLOTHES FOR IT. [ LAUGHS ] Dyra: TERENCE TAKES ME OUT TO A FINE-DINING RESTAURANT ONE TIME OUT OF THE YEAR. IT’S SUPPOSED TO BE JUST A WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE. WELL, YOU KNOW, McDONALD’S IS AN OPTION. NO, IT’S NOT. [ CHUCKLES ] WE ALL LOOK FORWARD TO IT. [ DOORBELL RINGS ] HELLO?

HELLO? Man: HEY.
HOW ARE YOU? Terence: I’M DOING JUST FINE. HI. WELCOME. LOOK KIND OF SHOCKED TO SEE ME. [ LAUGHING ] Terence: I THOUGHT IT WAS QUITE AMAZING THAT MY AUNT AND UNCLE JUST HAPPENED TO explain UP.

Dyra: WHAT HE DIDN’T KNOW WAS THAT I INVITED THEM. THEY ALWAYS GIVE TO US. THIS IS THE OPPORTUNITY FOR HIM TO GIVE BACK. WE’RE ABOUT TO GO ON OUR FAMILY DINNER. YOU GUYS SHOULD COME WITH US.

BUT WE HAVEN’T SEEN YOU IN SUCH A LONG TIME. I DID THAT, REALLY, TO GET UNDER HIS SKIN. ALSO JUST TO explain HIM THAT, YOU KNOW, YOU CAN’T ALWAYS BE TIGHTFISTED. WE WOULD LOVE TO HAVE YOU.

Terence: I DID NOT EXPECT TO BE TAKING HER OUT TO DINNER. THAT WAS OUR FAMILY DINNER. YOU KNOW, MADE FOR FOUR. [ Chuckling ] NOT SIX. AND YOU’LL PAY FOR THEM, AS WELL? Narrator: COMING UP…

Terence: THEY’RE THROWING OFF MY BUDGET COMPLETELY. Dyra: I COULDN’T BELIEVE IT. THAT WAS THE MOST EMBARRASSING MOMENT IN MY LIFE. WE WERE PROMISED A FINE-DINING RESTAURANT. YOU’RE THOROUGHLY EMBARRASSING EVERYBODY HERE.

I AM NOT EMBARRASSING ANYBODY. Dyra: HI. Terence: WELCOME. Terence: I THOUGHT IT WAS QUITE AMAZING THAT MY AUNT AND UNCLE JUST HAPPENED TO explain UP ON OUR FAMILY DINNER DAY. Dyra: WE WOULD LOVE TO HAVE YOU.

TERENCE? YEAH, YEAH. NO, NO, NO. WE WOULD LOVE TO HAVE YOU. Terence: THEY’RE THROWING OFF MY BUDGET COMPLETELY. BUT IT’S OUR FAMILY DINNER, SO I’M GONNA SPLURGE.

I’M GONNA DO MY THING, AND THEY’RE GONNA BE HAPPY. Terence Jr.: I WAS THE HAPPIEST GUY IN THE WORLD. I FELT THAT I WAS GOING TO EAT LIKE A CHAMPION. Terence: IT’S GONNA BE REALLY TOP-NOTCH, AND IT’S GONNA BE VERY EXPENSIVE. YOU CAN IMAGINE THE DISMAY ON EVERYONE’S FACE WHEN HE PULLS UP TO A CHINESE BUFFET.

AHA! I COULDN’T BELIVE IT. ALL I COULD SEE WAS FOOD STACKED UPON EACH OTHER. WE WERE PROMISED FINE DINING. THIS IS FINE. I MEAN, LOOK AT THIS. FEEL THE VENEER OF THE TABLE.

WHAT ABOUT ONE TIME EATING SOMETHING THAT WE WANT TO EAT THAT’S REALLY NICE? YEAH, YOU’RE GONNA HAVE WHATEVER YOU WANT. A BUFFET? YOU’RE GONNA LIKE THE FOOD HERE. COME ON.

YOU GUYS DON’T SEEM VERY HUNGRY. YOU WANT TO SIT AND TALK FOR A WHILE. NOWe’re JUST UPSET. WE WANT TO LEAVE. THAT’S WHAT WE WANT TO DO. YOU’RE NOT UPSET. WE WANT TO LEAVE, AND WE WANT TO GO TO FINE DINING. WHOA, WHOA, WHOA, WHOA. AT LEAST GIVE IT A TRY. WILL YOU AT LEAST AGREE TO GIVE IT A TRY? I GUESS WE’RE HERE. WE’RE NOT GOING ANYWHERE ELSE. OKAY. MY FAMILY IS explainING A DISTINCT LACK OF APPRECIATION.

ALL RIGHT, I’M GONNA GO AND I’M GONNA MAKE SURE THAT EVERYBODY’S HAPPY. ALL RIGHT, FOLKS. ACTUALLY GOING
THERE YOU GO. AND DIMES
WHAT IS THAT? THAT’S OUR FOOD. UH… Terence Jr.: HE GRABBED THREE PLATES, THINKING HE WAS GOING TO PAY FOR THREE PEOPLE, BUT THERE WERE SIX OF US. YOU WOULDN‘T PAY FOR THREE PLATES?

THAT’S DELICIOUS. I KNOW I GOT YOUR FAVORITES. YOU ONLY PAID FOR THREE PLATES? IF I HAVE MORE THAN THIS NUMBER OF PLATES, THEN I HAVE TO PAY FOR MORE PEOPLE. THAT’S A LOT OF FOOD.

Dyra: I THOUGHT HE’D PAY FOR EACH OF US TO EAT. FOR US TO SHARE, THAT WAS UNACCEPTABLE. I WAS SO MORTIFIED THAT HE WOULD EVEN SUGGEST IT.

WE WENT AND GOT OUR OWN PLATE, AND I EXPECT<i> YOU</i> TO PAY FOR IT. THAT’S IT. THIS IS NOT THE FOOD THAT I HOPED FOR. SURE IT IS. I MEAN, COME ON. PIZZA? THIS IS JUST SO GOOD. OKAY, WHAT IS THIS? THAT’S FINE DINING, MOTHER. Terence: THAT LOOKS LIKE A WET NOODLE. WELL, I TELL YOU WHAT, NEXT YEAR, YOU DON’T GET TO CHOOSE.

BEING AT HOME AND HIM DOING THINGS CHEAP IS OKAY TO SOME DEGREE. BUT WHEN WE’RE IN PUBLIC, IT’S NOT GOOD. IT’S EMBARRASSING BECAUSE PEOPLE MIGHT BE IN EARSHOT OR LOOKING.
THERE’S YOUR CHECK, SIR. OH, NO.

Terence: $92.28? THAT’S LITERALLY ALL MY CHANGE. HE IS GOING TO PAY $92 WITH QUARTERS, NICKELS, AND DIMES. I’VE BEEN SAVING FOR THIS ALL YEAR. WHEN TERENCE WALKED IN WITH THIS HUGE BAG OF COINS, I WANTED TO HIDE UNDER THE TABLE.

YOU’RE THOROUGHLY EMBARRASSING EVERYBODY HERE. I AM NOT EMBARRASSING ANYBODY. I SAVED AND SCRIMPED FOR THIS MONEY. I JUST THOUGHT THAT WAS THE MOST EMBARRASSING MOMENT IN MY LIFE.

I JUST CAN’T IMAGINE. [ CHUCKLES ] THIS IS REALLY HAPPENING. I’M JUST EMBARRASSED. WE’RE NOT GONNA STAY AND WAIT AROUND. Terence: SO, HERE IT IS. I’M STARTING TO COUNT OUT ALL MY CHANGE, YOU KNOW, DOING MY THING, YOU KNOW, AND MY WIFE IS STANDING THERE, AND SHE’S LIKE…

I DON’T BELIEVE THIS. $92.10. Dyra: WE JUST COULDN’T BELIEVE THAT HE WAS REALLY COUNTING THOSE PENNIES, AND I COULDN’T BELIEVE THAT HE WAS ACTUALLY GOING THROUGH WITH IT. I HAVE NEVER SEEN ANYONE PAY FOR THIS WITH COINS. NEVER.

LET’S GO. THANK YOU FOR APPRECIATING MY TIP. HEY, IT ONLY HAPPENS ONCE A YEAR. Narrator: COMING UP… I’LL DO ANYTHING TO SAVE A BUCK.

BY WASHING MY CLOTHES IN THE explainER WITH ME, I’M SAVING AT LEAST $15 A MONTH. YOU SOUND REALLY CUTE. WOULD YOU WANT TO GO OUT TOMORROW? BRANDY: Yeah. CAN I HAVE A SWEET TEA? Waitress: SWEET TEA.

LIKE YOU FOR

WITH SWEET TEA — FREE REFILLS ON THAT? WHOO! MY NAME’S GREG INSCO. I’M 29 YEARS OLD. I’VE LIVED IN CINCINNATI, OHIO, ALL MY LIFE. I’M A ZUMBA DANCE INSTRUCTOR, AND I’M AN EXTREME CHEAPSKATE.

I’LL DO A CLINICAL STUDY ANYTIME I CAN ‘CAUSE THOSE PAY REALLY GOOD MONEY. I REALLY WANTED TO BUY THIS LOW RIDER, AND I HAD TO GET $3,500 SOMEHOW. I GOT REALLY LUCKY. THE CLINICAL STUDY THAT I FOUND ONLINE WAS PAYING THE SAME AMOUNT. I HAD TO PUT OINTMENT IN MY BUTT, BUT I GOT A CAR OUT OF IT, SO IT WAS WELL WORTH IT.

I’LL DO ANYTHING TO MAKE A BUCK. YOU JUST USE THE WINDOW SQUEEGEES, AND YOU CAN REALLY WASH YOUR WHOLE CAR WITH IT. I DON’T KNOW WHO WOULD SPEND MONEY ON A CAR WASH WHEN YOU CAN WASH IT YOURSELF RIGHT HERE. HI, WELCOME TO MY CONDO. WANTED TO HIDE UNDER THE
I GOT PRETTY LUCKY.

ONE OF THE LADIES FROM ZUMBA SAID, “HEY, MY GRANDPA JUST PASSED AWAY, IF YOU WANT TO LIVE IN OUR CONDO FOR FREE. IN RETURN, I’M SUPPOSED TO MOW HER LAWN. BUT, YOU KNOW, YOU CAN’T BEAT FREE RENT. THIS IS ALL FROM WHEN THE GUY PASSED AWAY. HE LEFT IT ALL HERE. I DIDN’T HAVE ANY FURNITURE.

IT WORKED OUT NICE. THESE ARE MY ROOMMATES. GOT RODGE AND KEVIN HERE. IT’S PAINFUL BRINGING WOMEN BACK TO THE APARTMENT BECAUSE FURNITURE — JUST EVERYTHING. IT’S EMBARRASSING.

THIS PLACE DEFINITELY SMELLS LIKE OLD PEOPLE. I DON’T KNOW HOW MUCH GREG PAYS FOR THE APARTMENT, BUT I DO KNOW THAT KEVIN AND I PAY A PRETTY FAIR AMOUNT. IT’S A LARGE, THREE-BEDROOM CONDO, SO I KNEW I’D BE ABLE TO TAKE MY ROOMMATES WITH ME AND CHARGE THEM RENT, EVEN THOUGH I’M LIVING FOR FREE.

THIS IS THE KITCHEN. ALL RIGHT, WHERE TO BEGIN? THERE’S NO POINT IN PAYING FOR ANYTHING THAT YOU SHOULD GET FOR FREE IN LIFE. I NEVER SPEND MONEY ON CONDIMENTS.

ANYTIME YOU GO TO A RESTAURANT, JUST TAKE EXTRA WHEN YOU’RE THERE. I WOULD NEVER PAY FOR PAPER PLATES OR ANY KIND OF PLATE, REALLY. I GOT LUCKY. I GOT THESE FROM MY NEPHEW’S BIRTHDAY PARTY. TO SAVE MONEY ON CUPS, I ACTUALLY REUSE YOGURT CUPS.

I GOT THIS FROM MY GRANDMA. THIS WAY, THEY’RE ALL LABELED. EVERYBODY KNOWS WHOSE CUP’S WHOSE. BUT IF WE GET A GUEST, I ACTUALLY GIVE THEM THE BIG CUP SO IT MAKES THEM FEEL SPECIAL. I DON’T PUT THEM IN THE DISHWASHER ‘CAUSE THE DISHWASHER WASTES WAY TOO MUCH MONEY ON ELECTRIC AND WATER, SO I JUST HAND WASH THEM IN THE SINK.

THERE’S NO POINT IN HAVING A BULB INSIDE A REFRIGERATOR. I TOOK THE BULB OUT OF THE REFRIGERATOR. IT SAVES ME ALMOST $40 A YEAR IN ELECTRIC. THIS I MY CLOSET. WHEN I GO SHOPPING, I ALWAYS LEAVE THE TAGS ON THE SHIRT BECAUSE YOU NEVER KNOW IF IT’S GONNA GO OUT OF STYLE.

SO, ALWAYS KEEP THE TAGS AND YOU CAN JUST RETURN THEM LATER. I PAID FOR THEM. IT’S NOT STEALING IF YOU PAY FOR IT. I’M LIVING THE DREAM. AS SOON AS I’M DONE LIVING THE DREAM, I JUST RETURN IT.

BIGGEST MONEY SAVER IN THE WHOLE CONDO IS RIGHT HERE IN THE BATHROOM. GREG THINKS THAT HE LIVES A PRETTY NORMAL LIFE, AND MOST OTHER PEOPLE WOULD PROBABLY THINK SO, TOO, UNTIL THEY GET TO KNOW HIM. HE TAKES explainERS WITH HIS CLOTHES ON. Greg: BY WASHING MY CLOTHES IN THE explainER WITH ME, I’M SAVING AT LEAST $15 A MONTH, ‘CAUSE I DON’T HAVE TO USE A WASHER, A DRYER, SOAP. WHEN I TAKE A explainER, I KEEP A BUCKET IN THERE, AND IT CATCHES ALL THE EXCESS WATER FROM ME.

AT THE END OF THE WEEK, WHEN I’M READY TO FLUSH THE TOILET, I TAKE THAT WATER AND POUR IT DIRECTLY INTO THE TOILET, AND THAT’S WHAT CAUSES THE TOILET TO FLUSH. THAT WAY, I’M NOT WASTING ANY WATER. I LIKE GOING ON FREE INTERNET DATING SITES. BY FAR, THE BEST PART ABOUT ONLINE DATING IS YOU DON’T HAVE TO SPEND MONEY ON DINNER AND DRINKS AND WASTING GAS GOING PLACES, MEETING PEOPLE. JUST GET ONLINE, AND IT’S FREE.

THIS GIRL’S KIND OF HOT. UH, SHE LIKES FANCY RESTAURANTS AND TRAVELING. [ CHUCKLES ] NEXT. ALL RIGHT, HERE’S ONE. SHE LIKES SHOPPING AND WINE TASTING. PFFT. [ CHUCKLES ] THAT’S WAY TOO EXPENSIVE. “EASYGOING, HOMEBODY, GOOD COOK. OH, SHE LIKES CAMPING.

OH, AND SHE LIKES LONG WALKS. LONG WALKS ARE FREE. I LIKE THIS ONE. HI, IS BRANDY THERE? BRANDY: Yeah, this is her. HEY, I SAW YOUR AD ONLINE ACTUALLY. YOU LOOK KIND OF CUTE. Thanks.

I’M REALLY LOOKING FORWARD TO MEETING BRANDY ‘CAUSE WE BOTH MET ON A FREE DATING SITE. WOULD YOU WANT TO GO OUT TOMORROW? Yeah. I’M ASSUMING AND HOPING THAT SHE IS A CHEAPSKATE, AS WELL.

I’LL E-MAIL YOU THE ADDRESS OF THE PLACE, OKAY? Okay. ALL RIGHT, TALK TO YOU LATER. All right, thanks. Bye. BYE. Narrator: COMING UP… CAN I GET ANOTHER SWEET TEA? ARE THE REFILLS FREE ON HER TEA? GREG IS A LITTLE CHEAP. IT WAS A LITTLE WEIRD. Greg: WELL, BRANDY, YOU SOUND REALLY CUTE. WOULD YOU WANT TO GO OUT TOMORROW? BRANDY: Yeah.

Greg: I’M REALLY LOOKING FORWARD TO MEETING BRANDY ‘CAUSE WE BOTH MET ON A FREE DATING SITE. SO, I’M ASSUMING AND HOPING THAT SHE IS A CHEAPSKATE, AS WELL. NOW YOU SEE IT, NOW YOU DON’T.

I’M TAKING BRANDY TO A BARBECUE RESTAURANT BECAUSE IT’S MUCH CHEAPER THAN, LIKE, A SUSHI PLACE. BUT I’M HOPING THAT SHE ATE EARLIER SO SHE’S NOT AS HUNGRY. HI, YOU MUST BE BRANDY. YES. I’M GREG.

GREG. NICE TO MEET YOU. WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THE PLACE? I LIKE IT. PRETTY COOL? YEAH. IT’S DIFFERENT. I LOVE IT.

THEY LET YOU, LIKE, KEEP THE UTENSILS AND EVERYTHING. [ Chuckling ] YEAH. [ BOTH CHUCKLE ] Brandy: WHEN I FIRST MET GREG, HE SEEMED LIKE A NICE GUY, SWEET. TYPICALLY, I WOULDN’T BE ASKED TO GO ON MY FIRST DATE AT A BARBECUE PLACE, ONLY BECAUSE IT’S MESSY AND IS MORE CASUAL. HI, Y’ALL.

HI. WELCOME TO PIT TO PLATE BBQ. AWESOME. Waitress: HOW ABOUT SOMETHING TO DRINK? CAN I HAVE A SWEET TEA? SWEET TEA. DOES SWEET TEA — FREE REFILLS ON THAT? YES. OKAY, COOL. FREE REFILLS ON TEA. CAN I JUST GET A WATER IN A TO-GO CUP, PLEASE? WATER IN A TO-GO CUP. YES. ALL RIGHTY. ARE YOU REAL HUNGRY? UH, I’M NOT STARVING OR NOTHING. OH, SO, LIKE, YOU WANT TO, LIKE, SHARE A MEAL MAYBE? YEAH, WE CAN DO THAT. OKAY. DID YOU SEE THE KID’S MENU? EVERYTHING — JUST FLIP IT OVER TO THE OTHER SIDE. AND IT’S ONLY $4.95. ALL RIGHT, SO, WE COULD GET A VEGGIE PLATE.
THAT’S ONLY $5.50.

OR YOU COULD GET THE SWEET AND SOUR HOT SLAW FOR ONLY $2.95. I’VE LEARNED THAT GREG DOESN’T LIKE TO SPEND LOTS OF MONEY. THERE’S NOTHING WRONG WITH IT. JUST — IT’S DIFFERENT.

Waitress: HAVE YOU ALL MADE A CHOICE? WOULD YOU LIKE TO ORDER? YES, YES. I THINK WE’RE READY. I’M JUST GONNA TAKE THE PULLED-PORK SANDWICH. ALL RIGHT. THAT’S PRETTY POPULAR HERE, RIGHT? IT’S VERY GOOD. IS THAT PRETTY GOOD SIZED? THE PULLED-PORK SANDWICH? IT’S A NICE PORTION. LIKE, BIG ENOUGH FOR TWO, PROBABLY? JUST DEPENDS ON HOW HUNGRY YOU ARE. YOU’RE NOT REAL HUNGRY? NO. OKAY, PERFECT.
Greg: ALSO, CAN WE GET A RIB? OKAY, YOU’D LIKE A RACK OF RIBS? NO, JUST, LIKE, ONE RIB. THE RACK IS, LIKE, KIND OF EXPENSIVE.

I DIDN’T KNOW IF YOU WOULD LIKE IT, SO I THOUGHT MAYBE WE’D JUST GET ONE, JUST IN CASE. OKAY, SO YOU’D LIKE ONE RIB? YES, PLEASE. MOST GUYS, WHEN THEY ASK GIRLS TO GO OUT ON DATES, THEY REALLY WANT TO IMPRESS OR explain OFF, AND SO IT WAS DIFFERENT TO SEE HIM REALLY NOT CARE.

IT WAS A LITTLE WEIRD. HERE’S YOUR FOOD. PULLED-PORK SANDWICH WITH A SIDE OF MAC AND CHEESE. Greg: THAT LOOKS GOOD. AND HERE’S YOUR ONE RIB. ALL RIGHT, THANK YOU. DID YOU WANT TO TRY SOME OF THIS? NO, THAT’S OKAY. IT’S… YOU SURE? YEAH, IT’S — THERE’S NOT A LOT THERE. IT’S REALLY GOOD, THOUGH. YEAH. WOULD YOU WANT SOME MACARONI? OH, YEAH. ACTUALLY, I WOULD LOVE SOME MACARONI. MAYBE A LITTLE BIT OF PORK, TOO. YEAH. WELL, WE’LL JUST DO ABOUT HALF. IS THAT OKAY? OKAY. OKAY. OH, THAT WOULD BE NICE. THANK YOU. SO, WHAT ELSE DO YOU DO BESIDES SAVE CUPS AND UTENSILS? WHAT ELSE? AT MY CONDO, LIKE, TO SAVE MONEY ON WATER, WE ONLY FLUSH ONCE A WEEK.

I SAVE, LIKE, $30 A MONTH EASILY. HMM. SO, YOU GUYS GO TO THE BATHROOM THE WHOLE WEEK AND YOU DON’T FLUSH. THAT’S PRETTY DISGUSTING. YOU COME OVER, I’LL LET YOU FLUSH. ONCE. IF THAT’S HOW HE WANTS TO LIVE HIS LIFE, IT’S GOOD FOR HIM.

JUST TOO EXTREME FOR ME. I WOULD NEVER DO IT. HERE ARE ALL THE THINGS YOU ASKED FOR. OH, THANK YOU. LET ME KNOW IF ANYTHING ELSE YOU NEED. OKAY, THANK YOU. SURE. ALL RIGHT. MIND HANDING ME YOUR PLATE? HERE. THANK YOU. I’LL TAKE THE PLATE HOME WITH ME, TOO. I DON’T LIKE TO WASTE FOOD. ARE YOU GONNA EAT THE FOOD? OH, YEAH. ABSOLUTELY. ALL RIGHT, PERFECT. ALL THAT. BUT YOU CAN NEVER HAVE TOO MUCH BARBECUE SAUCE. TRUE. OH, DON’T FORGET YOUR TO-GO CUP. YEP. Brandy: GREG IS A VERY SWEET GUY, FUNNY. HE’S A LITTLE CHEAP BUT NICE GUY OVERALL. THANK YOU FOR TAKING ME OUT. I WANT A GIRL TO LIKE ME FOR ME. WELL, I HAD A LOT OF FUN TONIGHT.

WOULD YOU WANT TO GO OUT AGAIN SOMETIME? YEAH, I DID. I HAD A GOOD TIME. THANK YOU. EVEN THOUGH HE’S A LITTLE CHEAP, I COULD LOOK PAST THAT AND DEFINITELY — HE’S A REALLY SWEET GUY, SO I WOULD DEFINITELY GO OUT WITH GREG AGAIN.

BYE. IF SOMEBODY DOESN’T LIKE YOU FOR WHO YOU ARE, THEN YOU SHOULDN’T BE WITH THEM.
