Okay.

I just want to be clear

about something...

This is a deli, a delicatessen.

You know that right?

You're robbing a deli,

not like, a bank.

You know it's like meat,

cheeses, potato salad,

macaroni salad... okay.

Should I bag it?

Yeah.

Okay.

Have a great day, rocket.

What did you call me?

Nothing.

Nothing.

Enjoy your money.

No, no, no.

What did you call me?

Class 2006, "let's

go lions, let's go!"

You're Luke cromwell.

The rocket.

First of all, it's

pronounced crom-well.

Oh. Oh, I'm sorry.

Second, I have no idea

who you're talking about.

You dated Alice Evans

through most of grade 12.

Hey. I'm warning you, man.

You also have the single season

football rushing record and you

stop it!

...have your nickname

tattooed on your knuckles.

Shit.

Who the hell are you?

Oh. Yeah. I'm Corey.

Corey?

Swanson.

Corey Swanson.

No. No?

Wow!

Okay.

No, no.

Dita wait. Wait, wait,

wait. Just wait.

Call the cops!

This guy-he ...? He chased

the robber out there

and he got the money back

for us, actually.

You're sitting on the wrong guy.

This guy is a hero.

He is. Yeah, he's a hero.

Oh. Yeah, when dita retires

she's going to sell to me.

There's an old hardware store

sitting empty next door, so...

Expansion.

Expansion.

Yeah.

Some big brain

buddies you got there.

You.

You remembering all that

stuff you said about me.

You perform that

mental trick tonight,

you're going to be the

hit of the party.

I mean, you are

going tonight, right?

The reunion?

Oh, is that... that's tonight?

Yeah, man.

It's ten years.

Ten years, can you believe it?

I won't be going now, I guess.

How come?

I just needed some extra

cash to fix myself up a bit.

The rocket can't just

show up looking like

some kind of a homeless loser.

You were the most popular

guy in high school.

Sure.

No, really. Look, when I

was in grade 10

you were in grade 12,

everybody looked up to you.

You were a god.

When I was a senior and

you were still there

you were.. Same deal.

You know what?

You and the rocket.

Walker heights reunion.

Oh, I...

Come on man, get excited

for once in your life, huh?

No. I can't.

There's too many bad memories.

You know I read that... you

know, what's her name

is going to be there.

Miss thing.

Sheena... what's it... you

know that wrestling girl?

Sheena dewilde?

Yeah, that's the one.

Yeah, I want to get

a good look at her.

See if she's as bangable

as she is on TV.

I'm just going to stop you right

there, because I wasn't dumped.

It was kind of a mutual decision

that I needed to take some time

off and that's why I've been

training and focusing on

becoming a better wrestler.

It wasn't like I was fired

or anything like that.

Everyone's careers go up

and down and I've...

Dude, seriously? Off.

Oh my god.

This is Zach.

Hey.

Really, really cool guy.

Smile for the camera.

Stop doing that.

Dude, just...

I have universal

abundance within me.

I am one with the world.

Hi.

You're not easy to

find Dr. Hayden.

- Corey.

- Corey!

- Yeah.

- Corey.

I was coming for some advice,

but I think I can figure

it out actually.

No. Follow me.

As you can see my therapy

career is temporarily on hold.

Economic downturn,

what have you.

Yeah, I know it's

rough out there.

Yeah.

An opportunity has sort of

presented itself suddenly and

it's... if this is a bad time

I can just take off ...?

No, no, no. No, no.

I've just got to

do something quick.

Bing bang.

Okay, yeah. So look, it's

sort of the big c-word.

Closure.

I should have just said that.

Ah.

Look, sheena is
