Chicken Noodle Soup

Sketch premises involving Chicken Noodle Soup

  • A man in sick on the couch with the Manflu. His wife is pampering him regardless of how silly he is acting over a common flu. Eventually she serves him a bowl of chicken noodle soup that she has prepared from scratch. Unfortunately there are a lot of substitutions made because they were out of a lot of things. e.g. the chicken is cat food, the noodles and strips of potato, the broth is 7-Up.
  • A work break room has a refrigerator. There are a couple workers present that are trying to identify the contents of a Tupperware container. Their analysis keeps getting more and more obscure. Eventually a third worker enters and asks what the hell are you guys doing with my chicken noodle soup.
  • There is a Wine Cellar like facility for selecting vintage chicken noodle soups. A soup sommelier is present that describes the details of the soup. It drills down to the level that the lineage and specific chicken that is slaughtered to go into that batch of soup.
  • A single guy is trying to prepare a meal for his girlfriend. He only has a can of chicken noodle soup in the cupboard. He does not have a can opener. This will be mostly a silent sketch where there is a struggle to complete the impossible task of opening the can without the can opener.
  • A lab scene. There are a couple of scientists arguing over temperatures, volumes, time, and other very specific variables. They are making soup for their lunch. the sketch ends with them stating they only have 10 minutes left to eat their chicken noodle soup before they have to get back to work.
  • A couple of chickens are arguing over which one of them would make a better chicken noodle soup. Some kind of cannibalism joke could go in here.
  • Two cops are on a stake-out. They are debating something inane while drinking chicken noodle soup and hot coffee. The soup might not really have anything to do with the sketch, but the consumption of it inspired the premise.
  • Chicken soup is known a Jewish Penicillin. Could a pharmacy exist where there are other cultural cures. e.g. Italian Viagra, Spanish Anti-Inflamitory, Irish Hangover Cure, etc…
  • Guy comes into a restaurant and wants to order something that he had at a restaurant on vacation but can’t remember what it was called. He keeps finding ways to describe chicken soup, but when the server says that’s chicken soup, he insists that it isn’t.
  • Grandmother is teaching a child to make chicken soup. As each ingredient is added, there is a story that is wildly tangental and highly inappropriate for the child.
