Synopsis: It's the dinner shift at Shenanigan's. Dan, the clueless boss, assigns Mitch, 22, a trainee, to Monty, the smooth talker who chases girls for one-night stands. Dean, a waiter, also 22, feels that life is passing him by. Dan offers him the assistant manager job and gives him until midnight to decide. Other waiters, cooks, and bus boys have their issues and personalities. Bishop, the dishwasher, is their counselor. During this shift, Monty may learn something, Dean makes his decision, Dan makes a play for the not-yet-18 hostess, customers get their comeuppance, the guys all play the in-house homophobic flashing game, the gals demonstrate why they won't, and Mitch gets the last word.

he didn't prewarn me at all.

He set me up big time.

- Right around that corner.

- Okay.

Look at the log, bitch.

There are few things

in this world more unsettling

than going into the back

to grab condiments,

and ending up staring

at a huge, steaming pile of cock.

Hey, Serena.

- Hey, babe.

- What's up, Hangover?

I'm not hung over.

- Oh, you and Monty were crazy last night.

- Yeah, it was cooI.

How about you?

You have a good time?

I would've had a better time if somebody

hadn't been ignoring me all night.

Was that me?

Think Monty and I got

a little carried away.

- Oh, I swear, when you two are together.

- You're perverts! All of you.

If you guys can go five minutes without

referencing your genitals, I'll be amazed.

I know what you're thinking now.

You think we're all gay, don't you?

Think we're all just a bunch

of deviant lifestyle-living,

same-sex having motherfuckers,

am I right?


Well, listen. You can put that faggoty baby

to bed right now.

None of the guys

that work here are gay.

I mean, I'll stick my finger in my ass every

now and again when I'm feeling squirrelly,

but that's about

the extent of it.

It's absolutely true.

I've seen him do it.

See what I mean?


Hey, I've seen you use

more than a finger.

- Oh!

- Bye, babe.

- What's up, buddy?

- Nothin', man. What's going on?

What? What?

- What's wrong?

- I'll tell you later.

Listen, man. You got nothing

to worry about. It's just a game.

- Exactly.

- And besides, you know,

if heterosexuaI men can't show

their cocks to each other,

- then what the hell are we doing here?

- Amen, brother.

You're adorable.

Hey, Bishop.

This is Mitch.

He's the new guy.

I want you to do

a couple things for me.

First, I want you to observe very closely

your surroundings today.
