Tonight's show is brought to you by Murphy's Plumbing of St. Paul. (VIOLIN, GYPSY LOVE SONG VERSE) ...

MJ & GK:
If you're having trouble with your plumbing
And it's ten below.
If your toilet's constantly running
Or your drains are slow.

TR: Yeah. This is J.J. Murphy. People look down their noses at plumbers. Unless suddenly somebody flushes a toilet and something very surprising happens. Then the plumber gets invited.

TK: When you need a plumber, you don't need him a week from now. You need him right away.

TR: The life of grace and style ain't so gracious when your pipes are on the fritz, so give us a call. We'll be there.

MJ & GK:
If the water's leaking through the ceiling
When you fill your tub.
If you flush and get an awful feeling
The water's coming up. (TR: You're using the wrong kind of toilet paper.)
Don't despair, just call up Murphy Plumbing
No job too big or small. (TK: Check the overflow tank.)
We'll be there to handle all your problems
Murphy's of St. Paul. (TR: Let's go.) (TRUCK)
