George runs to a bridge and almost gets hit by a truck. Doesn’t anyone recognize George? Why do they all gotta be haters tonight? Merry Christmas you small-town Christians and your hate!
George looks over the edge of the bridge and you know he’s going to jump. Do it! You said you wanted to build bridges – now this one will always be associated with your name. But instead someone else jumps. And screams for help. George takes off his coat and jumps in after the man, saving him. Unfortunately, they both have shrinkage.
In the office of the bridge engineer, George and Clarence are drying their clothes. Clarence says he jumped into the water to save George and George is like huh? Well, you didn’t commit suicide, did you? Then there is a whole big back-and-forth about how Clarence is an angel and the engineer gets the hell out of there. Way to stay on the job on a holiday.
Clarence tells to George that he’s an angel, second class (no, seriously) – and he’s George’s guardian angel. George asks why he doesn’t have wings and Clarence says he hasn’t earned them. How will he do that? “By letting me help you,” Clarence says. Sadly, he does not have $8,000 for George. This angel sucks!
Clarence…is that Jerry’s Puffy Shirt?
Clarence tells George that people are much better off thanks to George and George says everyone would be much better off without him. Let’s check that, shall we? After a little back and forth, Clarence decides to show George how things would have been if he had never been born.
First things first, George gets his hearing back in his left ear. He thinks it has to do with the cold water from the river but nooooo. They decide to go drinking for some reason but George’s car is gone – because he doesn’t exist! Even the tree is fine!
At the bar, Nick doesn’t know him and the bar is a skuzzy mess with lots of nasty people. Nick overhears the conversation between George and Clarence and thinks they are a couple of nuts. Or lovers. He should just assume they are drunk and pour them more to drink. Duh. Nick decides to throw them out of the bar as Old Man Gower comes into the bar.
“Hey rummy there, didn’t I tell you not to come panhandling around here?” Nick says to Gower as he sprays him in the face with soda water. He doesn’t recognize George because George never existed and it turns out Gower spent 20 years in jail for killing someone with a bad prescription! Go figure! Clarence tells George that he wasn’t there to stop Gower from mixing the wrong prescription.
Good to see Potter Clown College is still open.
