it was your parents

who ruined your life!

They asked too much of you

ever since you were born,

they projected all their

disappointments on you!

They are responsible

for your suffering!

Gabriel, no one here...

has anything to do with it!


Good evening.

Party of one?

I see you're good at math.

One, yes.

Wherever you like.

Today's special

is lentils and rice stew.


Did he order?

That guy's from my hometown.

He's a loan shark, a gangster.

He auctioned our house.

Because of him,

my father killed himself.

Two weeks after the funeral,

he tried to seduce my mom.

He wouldn't leave her alone

so we moved here.

You know how many times

I dreamed of having him

right in front of me?

I'm going to say something.

Say something?

Your dad kills himself

because of this guy,

and you're just going

to insult him?

Let's put rat poison in his food.

There's some in the storeroom.

A good dose and his heart

will blow in five minutes.

Lots of work?

Not with this weather...

I've been trying to get your attention

for a while.

You need to check on

your customers, honey.


Can I take your order?

French fries with fried eggs.

I'll order something else

if I'm still hungry.

- To drink?

- Diet Coke.

Diet Coke?

Diet Coke.

French fries, fried eggs.

Want me to write it?

I hate him!

Make him French fries with fried eggs.

Are you crazy?

Want me to go to prison?

To prison?

Who'll do the autopsy on this jerk?

The FBI?

French fries with fried eggs.

They'll think the cholesterol

killed him.

Just cook his meal, will you?

Can I have your opinion?

You seem like a smart girl.

Come here.

Which do you like better? This one?


Or this one?

The red one.

The red one.

Hold on.

Don't I look too serious?
