Hi Mum, It's Sammy (Clone 69 - Part 1)
Congrats on the move. I'm sure you’ll be happy in your new home.
Oh Sam, maybe that's not what's lucky about Lucky Palms. You do have to give a new place a chance.
That seems pretty lucky.
Are you kidding? I don't have money to buy groceries! I can't afford a burger at a diner. I have to forage for a few vegetables to survive on. At least there was some things ripe enough to pick or I might have to go hungry for a few days.
Sammy, weren't you complaining about money just a few minutes ago? This doesn't seem like such a good idea to me.
Mum, it has to be ok. Surely I'll win enough to buy a new home. Or at least some good furniture.
I'll be damned, Sam. You did win.
Umm, I might have just pushed the machine a few times to convince it to give me some.
Ah, cheating. Sam Grant, I expect better of you.
But, I want out of that dump they sold me as a house. Mind you, this wasn't nearly enough money to do me much good. And I spent most of it trying to win more.
Still, Sam. Cheating is going to catch up with you.
Me? Nothing Mum. Just chilling by the wishing well.
Sammmm! You are up to something, I can tell.
Ok, I thought I'd get some coins from the wishing well. I still need money, the payout at the casino wasn't that great. Most of it went back into the machine.
You better watch it. Bad actions can backfire.
Mum, no one is going to miss a few coins. It's not a big deal.
Well, good luck with that.
That was pretty sound advice. I told you that nothing good would come of stealing from the well.
I think I'll try again. Maybe I can be lucky in love.
Sam, are you sure this is a good idea?
My luck has to change sometime.
You do know that tradition says you have to kiss it? Kiss the frog to get a beautiful princess or handsome prince.
Kiss? A frog? That's just disgusting.
You wanted love. You have to deal with it.
Damn, I kissed a frog and all I got was frog germs for my trouble. I'm sure that I'll get lucky sometime. I'll wish for family, that can't go wrong.
I don't like the look of that water.
It's exciting, something is definitely happening!
I'm glad that you're excited Sam. I just don't know.
I wait forever and ever in that well for a family and I get you? Why did I have to get such a loser?
Loser! You call me a loser, boy?
What else did you expect to be called? Dad? Don't think that's going to happen soon.
You are so going to be shipped to military school, boy.
No, he's not. You haven't the money to send him away. You have a son, love it or lump it.
My name is Berjes. You could at least get that right, loser.
Right, fine. If you want to be called Berjes, you should call me Dad or Sam.
Well, I guess we are stuck with each other, Sam. What's for dinner? You have no idea how hungry you get waiting in the well.
Salad. It's all I've got.
I heard that. Behave or the minute I can scrape together the cash, you are off to military school.
