The one at the dairy.

Well, Mom,

it didn't really happen.

I didn't get the job.

Ah.

That's all right, puddin'.

It's okay.

It's dangerous

being a milkman.

I saw a whole program on it

on cable television.

I'll find something, Ma.

You just don't worry.

Oh, look no further,

Mr. District Attorney.

What's this?

A jury duty notice?

My son, the lawyer.

Ma, it pays

$5 a day, okay?

Look, look at me.

I got stuff to do.

Yes, but...

I heard that

when the trial is important,

they sequester

the jury in very posh hotels.

Hey, Ma,

what could be

better than this?

(HORN BLOWING)

Tommy, you just threw away

your entire future.

Mom, honey-face, snookum-pie,

I'll find something.

Hear ye, hear ye!

Hey, Ma, look!

Harry the Hot Tub King

is slashing all prices.

That's right.

The widest selection.

I demand it.

The finest...

Hey, Mom, look.

Safe sex.

(HORN HONKING)

Oh, I...

I have to finish dressing.

(MOANING)

Hey, Jed.

Hi.

I got two words

for you, son.

Polystyrene.

It's like white gold, Tommy.

It's everywhere.

People are throwing

this stuff away,

right and left,

treating it like the plague.

But south of the border,

they can't get enough of it.

So, here's what we do.

We find it, clean it,

ship it. Bingo.

Easy village, huh?

Right.

Come here, I want to show

you something. Come on.

Look. Look, what do you see?

TOMMY:

A truck full of shit.

JED:
No, Tommy.

That's the future.

This stuff

is light as a feather.

And the best part of it is,

they pay you by the pound.

Wow! Then you must

be making a fortune.

Yeah.

Ta da! I'm ready.

Where are we going?

Uh, Vegas.

Oh, great!

Peanut loves craps.

Siegfried and Peanuts.

You didn't tell him?

I knew there was

something I forgot.

Okay, you guys,

we are ready.

Tommy, um...
