[TV CONTINUES PLAYING]

What'd we do last night?

Lot of trick-or-treaters?

Any candy left?

Business was good.

You give out one a piece

like I told you?

What does that mean?

Come on, Victor,

you got your hearing aid in.

- What happened?

- They took it all, Jimmy.

They... they took it all?

Who took it all?

- Aladdin.

- Aladdin?

One kid?

You let one kid

take all the candy?

I thought you were gonna

sit outside with it.

Well, I pu... I put on

the dummy's clothes,

because I wanted to make

believe I was the dummy.

I wanted to scare 'em, but then,

they all rolled up on me

at once and I got scared.

Got scared to scare them.

JIMMY:
Mugged by a bunch

of little shits with

- pillow cases.

- Aladdin.

Eh, listen, shake it off.

F*ck those kids.

Next year,

I'm getting 'em apples.

- DONNIE:
Hey Jimmy.

- JIMMY:
Morning.

- Hey, Jimmy.

- DONNIE:
How you doing?

You didn't come home last night.

I was doing inventory.

I was here all night.

- Hey.

- Hey.

Besides, you're okay

by yourself, right?

JIMMY:

You didn't have any problems.

Outside the thing

with the goddamn candy,

you did all right

by yourself, right?

How's it going, Vic?

What's the frequency

down here, buddy?

Hey, did you guys hear

they're shooting a big old movie

down there in the park?

JIMMY:
Yeah, we heard.

Vic's all excited,

he's gonna head

over there tonight, right Vic?

Yeah,

it's a John Travolta movie,

but he's not gonna be there.

He's in Hollywood.

Hey, you know, Vic,

You ought to take

your fiddle down there.

You never know, they might give

you a big part or something.

PHIL:

He's right on that one, Victor.

You ever notice

they're always hiring somebody

to do something

in the background.

It's not a fiddle, Donnie,

it's a violin.

DONNIE:
Whatever, same thing.

It's not like we've ever

seen you play the damn thing.

All right, leave him alone.

He's had a rough night.

They took all his candy.

DONNIE:
They took his candy?

- Who?

- JIMMY:
Aladdin, that's who.
