you, Dylan.

You got one oven

on life-support,

a freezer

that doesn't freeze,

an ice maker that makes...

You know, really cold water.

If we don't make a move

on the space next door soon,

somebody else will.

I mean, come on.

I got a wife and kid

to think about.

Mark, I get it.

Uh, no, I-I-I-I don't

think you do.

You see here, not only

are we not gonna be able

to get a new place--I mean,

we're gonna lose this pla--

[muffled] Never listens!

Never listens!

Likes to talk!

Hears himself talking!

Are you done?

[Sighs] Yeah.

Good. Everything's

gonna be fine.

Remember our deal...

You worry about

the food,

I'll take care

of the business.

Where are my souffls?

Ask him.

No more souffls.

Hey, boss,

you got a minute?

Uh, I guess so, Wally.

Remember the time when

it was really slow here

and I was sitting down

watching Sally Jesse

and you shot me with

a rubber band to my arm

and said, "Jesus, Wally,

stop itching your butt

and get a life"?

Sure, that was yesterday.

Oh, yeah.

Well, anyway,

I decided you was

absolutely right.

I gotta broaden

my horizons.

If I end up a lifer here

like turtle,

I'll kill myself.

That's why there's

no time to waste.

I want to be exactly

like you, boss.

I want you to be

my mentor, my guru,

my rabbi.

When you're chopping the

heads off the chickens,

I want to be there.

When you're squeezing

the melons,

when you're hitting

on the customers,

I want to be right there

with you, boss.

You know, chopping,

squeezing, hitting,

you know? I mean, I want

to just follow you

wherever you go!

Just about a foot

feels good.


Well, you're--you're very loud

and that's flattering.



It's good to hear

that stuff.

Maybe you would even consider

moving in with me.

Really? You mean it?
