Lazy Ghost Has SO Much Unfinished Business

Lazy Ghost Has SO Much Unfinished Business

(melodic orchestral music) – Ooh, how I love (speaks French). – Oh, man, somebody smudged the sign. (gasping) (speaks French) Uh! (thudding) (eerie melodic music) Oh! (gasping) – Oh my God, Trapp, you’re a ghost! – What?
– Why is this happening? – You must have unfinished business. – Tell me about it, I have so much stuff to do, I mean, look at that right there, I am so busy right now, you guys. Work has been crazy lately. – [Raph] Well, this all looks pretty easy. – Yeah, you should be able to
knock this out in like a day and move on to whatever eternal
paradise awaits for you. (melodic music) – Oh, yeah, yeah, it
does look pretty nice. – Yeah, and literally the
first step to getting there is just pick up dry cleaning. – Ah, it’s more of like
an evening activity, it’s like I can’t just
leave work and go do that. What else is on there? – Email Grant about chewing noises. – It’s gonna be a pretty awkward email, that’d be something I like to
save for the end of the day. – You did say you were
gonna write that sketch about what if The Sopranos
were The Flintstones. – Yeah, I do wanna do that, that one’s gonna take
a little while though, so when’s my next meeting? Do I have time to do that? – You have the entire afterlife. – You will never run out of time. – I am counting lunch as a meeting though, it’s important to make time for yourself. – Trapp, you can’t put this off forever. – You’ve gotta start
getting this stuff done. – Ah, but I don’t want to. – Just do it now and you can
literally relax for eternity, you can see your grandfather again. – [Grandfather] Come, my
boy, I’m having a party with Prince, Mark Twain
and Amelia Earhart. – Mark Twain made it to Heaven? – Oh, my God. – What would they even talk about, right? I’ve gotta see this.
(whooshing) – [Brennan and Raph] Whoa! – Ah, there you go. See, all you’ve gotta do is get started, I know that feels good,
that’s the toughest part is just overcoming that
mental block of just start– – He’s posting on Facebook.
– What the hell! – Okay, I am taking a short break to reward myself for getting started. – The only thing written in this script is the word, yabba gabba goo. – And that is a good start. – Literal Heaven is waiting for you! – Yeah, I know, okay, how about this? How about give me a nice easy task to get my momentum going, you know? – They’re all easy tasks! Update OS on my work computer. – I can’t do that, ’cause
that’ll take my computer out of commission for a while. – Schedule dentist appointment. – I’ll have to find a dentist
that takes my insurance, I’ll have to find a phone
number, check my own schedules, really that’s like three tasks in one. – I’m calling my dentist
right now, it’s ringing, all you have to do is schedule it. (phone ringing) – [Receptionist] You’ve reached
John Wilkes Tooth Dentistry, our office hours–
– Oh, voicemail. No, what you gonna do?
– Anything on the list is what you can do.
– How about this? We call today a rest day,
I’ll sort of recharge and then I’ll get that all done tomorrow. – [Brennan and Raph] No! – Fine, fine, I’ll get to work in like 10 minutes. – Oh!
– Why? – It’s 10:50, it’d be crazy to
start on a not round number. – Oh, yeah, right, that would be crazy. – Everyone knows that.
– You know what? Do whatever makes you happy, enjoy your time as an undead
shade damned to half-existence. – Well maybe I will, maybe
that’s exactly what I’ll do. – [Brennan] Who’s gonna get
these poison cakes out of here? – Hoo! Enjoy time as undead shade. Hoo, so much to do.

  1. Although good, most of the tasks could’ve been dropped. Email Grant, but he’s already given the chance to go to heaven to get away from the chewing noises. Dry cleaning, but he doesn’t have to wear clothes. Script, if he wanted to, but not important as it would make sense why it was never complete once his name is in the obituaries. Dentist? He’s already dead so no point

  2. I relate to the ghost way too much. In multiples ways actually. One, because I procrastinate when it comes to relatively easy tasks. Two, because I too am literally a ghost.

  3. Is he actually lazy though? He still wants to tackle take that he doesn't need to short about anymore. He's a ghost. Why bother don't the laundry or going to a dentist appointment when you're dead. The only thing that kind of makes sense is the sketch if he feels an obligation to college humor. Still if he accepts that he doesn't have anything to worry about, which is the lazier route, he could just pass on

  4. Right. Because everyone has a beautiful platter of poison cakes sitting on their desk at work. It’s so annoying when you die from eating them, right?! …Some people just can’t bake correctly. 🙄

  5. Hey, posting on Facebook to let everyone know you’re dead is legit. That’s totally part of closing your affairs. Words gotta spread somehow right?

  6. i mean, it's humorous, however a lot of the things on the list can be excused due to the fact that he is dead. he doesn't have to pick up dry cleaning, no physical teeth for the dentist, no reason to write the sketch, and he'll go a while without hearing Grant's chewing noises.

  7. Oh no! that is what I am doing right now!! (minus being dead) man, I wish I was dead, what a great excuse to procrastinate.

  8. I like how on the part where he’s on the phone it’s John Wilkes booth ( Abe Lincoln’s assassin

  9. I'd make a to do list just to stay on this plane lmao
    Like, "to do: stay on earth for 500 years" or someshit

  10. Why would a ghost need to go to the dentist? That is one task they could have just knocked off the list right then!

  11. He doesn’t to leave work but he no longer has work since he’s dead. And he won’t have to see Grant since he’s not working and also dead.

  12. Rewatching this I think one of my favorite things is the poisson cakes. They had to kill him off at the beginning of the sketch and they chose to play with poisson/poison. It was all just an excuse for Trapp to cry out Sacre Bleu! But it was beautiful all the same. Brava. Brava.
