Thank god I didn't say

something really stupid

like "I love you."

And I love you, too, Deb.

Oh, mom, should I ask him...

Hold on. Bobby wants

to say something.

Dad, can I get some fireworks?

No, Bob. Fireworks are illegal.

Good night.

Good night.

How's it going?

Ha ha ha ha!

How's it going, guys?

Ha ha!

How's it going?

Hi, guys.

What the hell

did you invite Fountain for?

Don't worry. He won't show.

He's probably in bed right now

with his nose stuck

in the Abcom manual.

He's probably jerking off to it.

Hell, I'll bet he don't even jerk off.

The guy better not show up, man.

He bugs the shit out of me.


Why? He's an asshole!

Oh, I don't know, Dex.

The way I see,

he's one of those guys

who goes through life like a robot.

He can't help it.

He like a damn machine

on automatic pilot.

I feel kind of sorry for him.


I still think he's an asshole.

So do I.

You may be right.

Are we gonna play poker

here or what?

Bring those pieces

of pipe over there.

We need that front

end loader around here.

Running like clockwork today, Al.

Turbine's in.

We're ready to run the system check

whenever you want

to give her the juice.

Ok. All right. Systems check.

We'll square that away right now.

Jesus, Al.

You look like shit.

What did you do, party all night?

I had a little trouble

sleeping, that's all.

Well, you should

have come by the game.

Yeah, I probably should have.

What's going on, chief?

The job is canceled.

Canceled? what do you mean, canceled?

Canceled over a management decision.

They're giving us all our bonus, and...

They're sending us home.

Dexter moon. There you go, Dex.


Good job, buddy.


All right. Curtis Wiley. Pass this back.

All right. Listen up.

The shuttle van leaves

for the airport at 3:45.
