One classic scene is Uncle Rico obsessing about his high school football days. After hitting a bike-riding Napoleon square in the face with a flying steak, Uncle Rico launches into a wistful what-if monologue: “How much you wanna make a bet I can throw a football over them mountains? Coach would’ve put me in fourth quarter, we’d have been state champions, no doubt. No doubt in my mind.”

And watch actor Jon Gries' facial expressions throughout the scene. They're priceless.
