Eduardo Deacon.


Division at...?

Third Battalion, Fifth Marines.



2011, 2014.

Dates of leave?

Three consecutive tours.

Sangin, huh?

Was it as bad as they say?


Injuries? Anything you're not

physically capable of doing?


Anything you don't like doing?

I like it all.

You like cleaning toilets?

I'd do anything.


All of your psych evals

have been passed, correct?

Yes, yes, Ma'am.

OK, so here's the deal.

I have you on our database,

so the trip wasn't for nothing, OK?

We just don't have anything that

matches your skills set right now.

What about the job I came in for?

Filled a week ago.

But I saw it on the

website two days ago.

I know, there's a delay in our

system and it gets frustrating.

Listen, I have been home for a year.

I haven't worked a single day.

My piece-of-sh*t car is

literally falling apart.

My kid and my wife are two states away,

so when I tell you I would do

anything, Ma'am... I mean anything.

Listen, I go through this everyday

and it never gets any easier.

Just do me a favor: black minimum wage

into my profile there.

But you're a Captain so you're

entitled to be awarded...

I can't wait for what I'm entitled to!

I need this now.

Have a nice day.

Wait, hold on!

Minimum wage and

the hours are sh*t

and it's a least another

40 minutes away from here.

Oh, it doesn't matter.

The thing is, it didn't show up

because that box that says you passed

your psych evals, wasn't ticked.

Must have been a clerical mistake.

Must have been.

Thank you.

You start tonight.

I'm on it.

All-wheel drive as

requested, hard-armored.

Same as last week.

- Precious cargo?

- Back seat of car two.

Got it all, we're on our way now.

How's the witness? Over.

Sleeping like a baby.

We're not getting into Cedar

City for another hour and 40.

Not in this weather.

Great! It would be like if... hello?

Comm dropped.

Bry, check your phone, please.

I'm dead too.

Must be the storm.

1A is supposed to be locked down, right?

Affirmative. Why?

Be advised.

We got company back here.

Car One, this is Two.

On-coming vehicle on passing lane.

We got an ID?

Car Three?

Car Three, do you copy?

The radios are down.

Something's not right.

See that?

What the f***?

Move, move, move!

Bry, cover me!

Get out of the car, now!

Listen to me!

When I say, you run into those woods!

Don't look back! Don't stop

until you find someone!

Now! Go, go, go!


We got nine out of ten.

The target's not here.

Clean this up.




Where are you?

Erm... listen, erm..

I may have found a job.

That's... yeah, that's so good.

- Where?

- It's not close...

I have to be here for a little bit.

Are you OK?


Erm... I'm good, yeah.

Because he's been sending...

I'm OK, really.

There are doctors here who can...

Val! Val!

I'm coming back.

Just have to work

through some stuff.

That's all.

Sylvia's here. She asks

about you all the time.

Just tell her that I love her. Bye.

Can I help you?

Eddie Deacon.

Here about the job.




Thank you.


It's $9.15 an hour, I'll start

with 60 days, no overtime.

Two 15-minute breaks per 8

hour shift, you got it?

- Yeah.

- OK.

So, Eddie Deacon,

this is Ridgeside Mall.

We're currently walking through

Montclair's Department Store...

Flagship location in all its glory.

Broke ground 1986...

Updated never, why would you?

It's got it all:

Kid's Wear, Ladies' Wear,

Medics, crappy sporting

goods section...

Erm, some other sh*t...

Oh! Can's down the end, keep it clean.

Oh! command HQ. Eyes and

ears of the whole place.

We got a corner cubby set up

for you, right in there...

Lay when in your own time.


Weird, it doesn't do that.

Must be the weather.

Anyway, let me introduce to the team.

I'm Vance.

Chief Supervisor, overnight crew,

The Boss.

This happy little princess

here is Mason...

Don't bother learning

his name because...

he's too good for

the job, isn't he?

He's gonna go off for some

real estate or some sh*t...

- Appraisals. - Anyway, he's just

here to bring home the bacon...

As if there were any

other reason to be here.

No! That's why we call

him "Mason-Bacon"!

You're the only one who calls me

that and nobody thinks it's funny.

He gets it, man.

He gets it.

Hey, hey, girl, how are you feeling?

Touch me and I'll puke, Vance,

I swear to God.


Oh, thanks.

You need anything?

Can I get you a water...?

Cover me for one hour, please.

I wanna be dead.

That's good, you should just

lie down for a minute. Yeah.

That brings us neatly to the containment

facility we have over here and...

In your bed over there, that is Ruby.

She's done two double

shifts in three days

so we're gonna cut her some

slack, aren't we Bacon?

Like we have any choice! You could not

wake her up with a bullhorn! Like...


Not a fan of the thunder, huh?


- How d'you feel about the lightning?

- Oh, my God!

I'm showing him the thing!

Pretty cool, right?

30 days and a safety course, you can

get one of these of your very own.

Right. Until then, you're

gonna have to watch me.

Oh! There is one more person,

let me just give him a call.

Hey, Johnny! How you doing, my man?

Where you at, bro? Over!

In the balls, over.

That would be zone D, use the proper

nomenclature, or get docked. Over.

Yeah, yeah.

That's Johnny Changway, or as I like

to call him:
"Can't stay away".

The guy freaking lives.

He makes the rounds.

- In the balls?

- Hm? Oh, erm...

Yeah, I mean, you know...

This thing that looks

like a cock and balls...

But obviously, it looks like a gun.


Yeah, anyway, we should

give you the tour.

Five zones, A through E.

Montclair's, that place you

came in through, that's zone A.

Other thing you're wanting to

do is get suited and booted.

Looking nice.

Get that on,

I'll take you through the rest.

First stop. Zone B.

Shopper's row.

D'you know why we call

it shopper's row?

Cos this is where all

the shopping happens.

You wanna buy something nice for your sweetie?

This is the place to do it.

Zone C, the food court.

Everything in here will kill you.

Seriously. Bring your own food.

Just around the corner there you got

a beautiful view of the car park...

The only thing that happens there

is America's finest come in,

they shine their lights around

like they're doing something

and then, they just

drive off and I do sh*t.

Zone D. Now, erm... this is usually my

least favorite part of the tour, but...

Recently they've just installed this

competition for this baby over here.

Best part of it is once a week we get to drive

it around so the battery doesn't go flat

so you play your cards right,

you might get a ride on "El Fuego".

That's not its real name. It's a

name I made up, pretty cool, right?

All right! You're ready for the

grand finale? Here it is...

Clyve's, the other department store.
