Casa del Monty

Unconventional used-car salesman MONTY (35; a quirky Chris Pratt-type) teaches his affable protégé SKIPPER (30; younger Donald Glover-type) the tricks of the trade to make sure his “stuff’s up to snuff,” when, suddenly, NORMA (25; younger Jennifer-Aniston type) threatens her husband Monty with the prospect of divorce…unless Skipper can “woo” her in selling her a car, as Norma has never been “wooed” in this way. After some deep breaths and an inspiring monologue, Skipper starts gaining confidence as Monty is left to witness his greatness. Watch out for Skipper! Motivated by his own quirks and Monty’s unorthodox tactics, Skipper shines as he demonstrates the power of persuasion and tact in “wooing” Norma to buy a quality used vehicle. But, wait! Just as Skipper moves to close the deal, Monty puts on his “big boy pants” and promises to “woo” his wife and sell her the car if she takes him back. It’s a deal! Speechless, a defeated Skipper can only look on in admiration at his near sale, “wooing,” and true artistry at the hands of Norma and Monty.
