Well well well, let's see what we have here. [Opens medical chart]
It's pretty obvious, dipshit. I got hit on the sideline...
...and tore my ACL. I need this fixed, and I need to rehab as fast as possible. I can't miss a week of running a once-great football program into the ground while simultaneously acting like a pompous asshole.
I see. Well, Mr. Weis, for patients in your circumstance, we usually recommend arthroscopic surgery coupled with intense physical therapy. Such physical therapy usually requires temporary use of a motor scooter...
...one of those Rascal things?
Great, get me one of those bastards. I'll use it to run over Clausen when he throws an incompletion. Dipshit keeps throwing incompletions despite his clear schematic advantage.
There's just one problem, Mr. Weis.
Don't tell me I can't run over a player on a Rascal, dumbass. I once drove over Brady Quinn with a G.I. Joe Big Wheel for throwing an interception against Navy.
No, it's not that, Mr. Weis. Rascals have a 375-pound weight limit. You are clearly too obese to use it safely. And, given your legal history, I'm not willing to take the risk.
GIVE ME THAT RASCAL OR I'LL SUE YOUR ASS!
We could get you a gas-powered Rascal, but they're made in Grand Rapids, and...
TO HELL WITH MICHIGAN!
So how are we going to fix this knee, fuckhead?
Well, there is one possible treatment. It's very experimental, and you'll have to go to Dallas to have the procedure, but there's no rehab at all...
[Five days later, Charlie Weis is back on the sidelines as Notre Dame plays Michigan State]
Clausen, you dipshit! Get over here!
Yeah... [looks down at Weis' left leg] ...uh, Coach?
Alright, fuckstick! We're gonna run an Ace Z-out X-tango...
What is it, shitfuck?
What is that on your leg?
What is that on my leg? WHAT IS THAT ON MY LEG? Hey Tenuta, dumbass is asking what is on my leg. Can you believe this?
You want to know what's on my leg, asswipe? Fine. It's TV's Patrick Duffy.
Patrick Duffy. You might remember him from his role as Frank Lambert on the long-running ABC series Step By Step, part of the "TGIF" lineup. Dickwad.
AAAAARRRRGGH!!! [Puts on helmet, runs away from creepy Patrick Duffy Leg]
[Later, Notre Dame is down 31-27 late in the fourth quarter. Michigan State has the ball and can run out the clock if it converts a 3rd-and-6]
TENUTA! What defense are you calling?
Excellent! Run the bl...
Don't do that, Charlie.
Patrick Duffy Leg, you dipshit, are you questioning my defensive coordinator?
I have to do it, Charlie. You and I are one now, and I have no choice but to impart my knowledge to you. In Season 1, Episode 10 of Step By Step, my daughter Karen forgot to get me a phone message. I walked into a building that was being demolished and was nearly killed...that darned Karen will never learn!
What in the fuckhills does this have to do with this game?
You've blitzed on every play...
Don't give Michigan State the message and make them walk into the condemned building. Run the Cover 3. Hoyer will throw it right to the safety.
Hmm, you might be onto something there, Patrick Duffy Leg. TENUTA, run the Cover 3!
I SAID DO IT!
[Tom Hammond is calling the game. Of course.]
Michigan State lines up with three wide on third and six from the Notre Dame 18...Hoyer takes the snap...drops back...throws down the middle...AND IT'S INTERCEPTED! IT'S INTERCEPTED BY BRUTON! HE'S BROKEN FREE DOWN THE SIDELINE! HE'S GOT A BLOCKER!
[After the game, in Weis' office]
TENUTA! Get in here!
TAH-NOO-TAH HAPPY WIN!
Yeah, about that...Patrick Duffy Leg made the call on that Cover 3. You wanted to blitz...
Well, fuckstick, if we followed your advice, we would have lost.
TAH-NOO-TAH COVER THREE?!?
No, it wasn't Tenuta Cover 3. It was Patrick Duffy Leg Cover 3. I've made up my mind, Tenuta. You're out. Patrick Duffy Leg is in. Hit the bricks, dipshit.
I'll take it from here, Tenuta. I beat JR Ewing. I can beat anyone.
[Under the direction of the Patrick Duffy Leg, Notre Dame's defense morphs into the best defense in the nation. It's almost enough to make up for Charlie's offense. Notre Dame enters its final game against USC at 6-5, one win away from a BCS berth. Late in the fourth quarter, Notre Dame leads USC 6-0, but USC has driven to the Notre Dame 35.]
What are we doing here, Patrick Duffy Leg?
In Season 4, Episode 4 of my hit ABC sitcom Step By Step, I lost out on a sports announcer position at the local radio station to my wi...
NOOOOO!!!! NOT THE PATRICK DUFFY LEG!!!!
(TFJs in order for Harris, who came up with the Scuzzlebutt thing on the EDSBS Live board, Orson Swindle for giving voice to Tenuta, and Trey Parker & Matt Stone for not suing us for blatantly stealing from them on a regular basis.)
