So Socrates says to the guy,

"is something right,

because god says so?

Or does he say so

'cause it's the right thing to say?"

Come again?

But you know what,

if you think about it,

if something's right,

or if god says something's right,

because that's

the only right thing there is,

that concept,

that shit's greater than god.

And you're telling me this, why?

Well, it's called an education.

Haven't you heard, berg,

knowledge is the key.

Key to what?

I don't know,

happiness or some shit.

Isn't that what

little jimmy Holloway said?


Little jimmy Holloway.

He did a bid for frank sand,

up state

a couple years back.


Short guy?

Nah. He literally had

a little jimmy.


Unfortunate nickname

if you ask me.

I think his given name

was Charles,

something like that.

Anyway, when he came

out of prison,

they found him in the river,

face down

with his little prick

stuffed halfway

down this throat.

Why? Because he knew

too much...


That's what knowledge got him.

I don't want knowledge.

I want ignorance, okay?

Give me ignorance anytime.


What's happening?

What the f*ck is this?

What's this philosophy shit?

Karen's taking it this semester.

Hey, man.

You know, that fiance of yours?

What about her?

She... she... you know.


I hope she's worth every penny,

I really do.

You know,

just because you decide

to treat everybody in the world

like they're out to f*ck you,

that doesn't mean you're right.

No, it does.

That's exactly what I mean.


You sure these guys are coming?

Oh, ye of little faith.

My ci's solid, trust me.

MAN 2:

Yes, sir?

You're short again. I don't

see how that's possible...

Look, how many times do we have

to have this conversation?

I don't give a f*ck

about your excuses,

just get it right.

Yes, sir.

Where do you think you're going?

I thought that I would just

clean up the glasses.

Who told you to think?

Hey, buddy, hey!

You gotta order a drink

or get out.

Hey. This ain't a hotel, man.

Rise and shine.


Oh, god.

Don't stand there like an idiot.

Clean that shit up.

(PHONE RINGS) -and the phone's

not gonna answer itself, huh?

You know, sometimes,


I wonder what the f*ck

I'm paying you for.


Reno tavern, how may I help you?

Where the hell are you?

Vic, calm down.

Look, I'm almost done.

It's gonna be plenty of time

for me to pick up Sam at 3:30.

Do you know what day it is?



He gets out early on Fridays.

I am so sorry, Vic.

Is he pissed?

I'm fine, dad.

I'm the one that has to go

and pick him up, drop him off,

and then I have to go

back across town

to get to my meeting

which I am now gonna be

late for.

I mean, f*ck, Chris!

Did you at least get

the money together?

I'm gonna pick up a few extra

shifts next week, I promise.

Christopher, you're almost

five months behind.

I mean, you're his father

for Christ's sake.

I mean, what am I

supposed to say?

I can't be both his parents,

there's supposed to be a father

and a mother working together.

I can't do all by myself.

Christopher, why didn't you put

the new signs out yet?

Okay, honey, yeah.

Christopher, if you

hang up on me, -love you too.

I swear...

Hello? Is anyone in there?

Oh, sorry. What?

I'm going home early today,

please make sure

that you lock up today.

And for god's sake,

don't forget to stock

all the new inventory boxes.

Last time I came in and...

I almost tripped

and I broke my neck.

(MUTTERS) yeah, I hope you

break your fucking neck,
