Josie's on a vacation far away

Come around and talk it over

So many things that I wanna say

You know I like my girls a little bit older

I just wanna use your love tonight



I don't wanna lose your love tonight


I ain't got many friends left to talk to

Nowhere to run when I'm in trouble

You know I'd do anything for you

Stay the night but keep it undercover

I just wanna use your love tonight

Oh, yeah

I don't wanna lose your love tonight


What the hell?

Oh, man. Not another one.

I shouldn't have been looking

for my ChapStick, buddy.

You're just stunned, I think.

Yeah. I mean, you got the wind

knocked out of you.

I did that on a jungle gym.

Had the wind knocked out of me too.

I'll give you a couple seconds.

You'll be fine.


Come on.

Maybe you just need a little...

You want mouth-to-mouth, man?

Maybe that'll help.

I just- I don't want you to bite my mouth.

There you go. That's helping.

Okay, come on. Let's walk it off, man.

Get up on all fours. You can-

Attaboy! Run!

Look at you go! There you go!

Got a good gait.

Got a good gait. Yes!

Your love-

Where are my chicken sandwiches,

Larry? Come on, let's go.

Somebody get these. Oh, my God.

Tammy, get over here.

You're late again.

Do you own a watch much?

I know I'm late.

A deer jumped out of nowhere.

You look like crud. Oh, my God.

Get off the floor.

Tammy, my office. Now.

I'm coming, Keith. God.

Tammy, do you know

how I got to where I am?

Sucking dick and kissing ass?

Excuse me, Keith.

We need some more ketchup.

Okay. English, though, Javier.

This is America.

- It was English.

- That wasn't English.

- Is that blood?


A deer hit my car on the way in.

- You should maybe see a doctor.

- No kidding.

Okay, thanks, Javier.

That's great advice. See you later.

Tammy, I'm terminating your employment

at Topperjack's.

You've gotta be shitting me.

No, I'm terminating your employment.

I need your badge.

What ba-? You mean my name tag?

- Yes, exactly. I need your badge back.

It's not a badge.

It's a name tag, and you made me

buy it with my own money.

That's company policy. I need it back.

Well, I need you to stop sweating through

your shirts and grossing everybody out.

It is hot. And when it's hot, people sweat.

- Not like that. Not like that.

It's how it is.

- That sh*t's medical.


Tammy, you have already been fired.

I have already terminated your employment.

You are at least 40 seconds fired...

...so please exit the Topperjack's.

Fine. You know what?

I'm gonna give you this.

- Tammy.

I got it here.

It's your middle finger.

- No.


Read between the lines.

I knew that you were gonna do it,

so it's not as good.

- I get it, Tammy.

- Poom. You get that?

What is that?

- A little version of this.

Hey, don't let a deer hit you on the way out.

You dick. You know what?

Don't let these ketchup packets

get stuck in your gross armpits.

- You'll have to buy new shirts, you dick.

- Those are Topperjack's supplies.

You are no longer an employee

of Topperjack's.

- Oh.

- Yeah, that sh*t's contaminated now!

For overtime due, Keith. Overtime due.

- Tammy, just get out.

- Enjoy the special sauce.

Do not touch the Tower Deluxe burgers.

Those buns are still good.

Just change the hats.


- Yeah, that's what I thought.

- I'm calling the police!

Uh, just thought you should know

that the meat here is real shitty.

- Oh, God.

- Real, real, real shitty.

- That's the truth.

- That's not true.

That's not chicken.

I don't know what it is, but it's not bird.

It's 110 percent chicken.
