hiding in the shadows,

eating cheese,

begging for crumbs?

Who knew?

But you're stupid,

aren't you, Dave?

- Huh?

- You're an idiot. A moron.

Jackass. Heh-heh!

End of the day,

you think it's morning.

- What?

- Did you think

we wouldn't find out?

- Find out about what?

About the promotion?

- Promotion?

For you?

- Well, I thought...


- You embezzle $27,369.27

from the company

and you want a promotion?

You're amazing!

- What?!

Hold on a second!

I didn't embezzle anything!

- Well, sure you did!

It's all right here.

- It's got to be a mistake!

- I don't think so.

I don't think

the authorities will either.

- Authorities?

- That's right, Dave.


- Is there anything else

I can get you?

- No!

No. Thank you. I'm fine.

- What about something to eat?

- No, really.

Everything's fine.

Maybe you should just leave.

- I don't know, Mister.

You were pretty shaken up.

Maybe I should stay and look

after you for a little while.

I am a Fireside Girl.

- No. I just don't like

going outside, that's all.

And I'm not very

good with people,

so I think it would be better

if you just left.

- I'm going to make you

something to eat.

- No!

Please, just leave.

- Asshole!

[Fire-truck siren]

- You lost your job?

- Baby, they got nothing on me!

I'm clean!

- I can't believe this is happening.

- Don't worry. I didn't do anything.


I've got much bigger news

to tell you!

- Oh yeah?

What's that?

- I'm moving in!

[Car alarm]

Look, I know the timing

of all of this is a little weird,

but I think it just depends

on how you look at it.

You were always complaining

about how we never had time

to see each other.

Well, now Andrew's

out of my life.

And as far as the job goes,

well, I can always

get another job.
