What's out there?

Out in the great beyond?

And what's beyond that?

What's beyond "beyond"?

The answer is,

I don't know.

And quite frankly,

I don't want to know.

Because what I do know is that they

don't holds candle to the greatest town...

in the greatest country

an the greatest planet...

in the whole universe.

Glen vie w, Ohio...

USA, Earth.

Here in Glen view, we value diversity.

I, myself, am friends

with an Indian man named Clyde...

and Mrs. Kim,

a wonderful widow from Korea.

Hey, Mrs. Kim. Spray me!

Spray me, neighbor.


Sun shower.

Fun shower.

I don't have any black friends yet,

but lam an the market.

- My name's Evan Trautwig.

- Oh, Ed Bosani.

Every day, {ask not

what Glen view can do for me...

but what can I do for Glen view.

Jared, your glutes are tighter

than a snare drum.

That's why I founded the running club...

the Spanish table

at the community center.

And created the position

of Deputy Secretary at the city council.

All right, next item on the agenda...

stipulates curb height

for wheelchair access...

be no more than six inches in height.

I know this is a hot topic,

so I will defer to the commissioner.

Here, dreams really do come true.

A simple man can start out

as a junior manager at Costco.

And, 12 years later,

with hard work and gumption...

end up the senior manager

at that very same Costco.

I should know,

because that man's name is me.

I don't mean to bust your chops, kid,

but this is total bullshit.

Those rats are as flat

as they ever have been.

I'm sorry.

It really should be working.

Excuse me, sir,

if I might.

The activation button

is right there.

Holy sh*t!

This is incredible.

There's chipmunks

coming out of the TV, Costco!

Look, the whole gang's here.

It's a great set. Full HD.

Hey! Buddy, please,

this is a miracle of technology.

This is incredible.

Where do I pay for this baby?

Justin will load you up.

Go to front-end check out.

You're a beauty. Thank you, switch man.

Turning the switch on.

Turning on a whole new world for me.

Hey, Justin, if we stop by

some free food samples...

I'm not going to be pissed, either.

But you know what?

It's not all about work.

lha ve hada lat of fun...

and form ed friendships

that will last a lifetime.

Hey! There he is.


There are fifty stars

in the American flag.

The Constitution was created in 1787.

And, I am now an American citizen.


- Yes.

- Oh!

Antonio, that's great!

I knew it.

Good things happen to good people.

And you are a good man.

And look, boss.

I got a new tattoo to celebrate.

- Wow. That's really fresh, isn't it?

- Yeah.

"Proud to be an American." Good.

Maybe keep it covered, though, because

it's not really Costco policy, okay?

Yes, of course, boss.

I'm proud of you. This is great.

All right, I have to get out of here.

Oh, hey, listen.

If a bag of Bugles

and a six-pack of Coke go missing...

it's on me. You earned it.

Thanks, boss.

Wake up quick

at about noon

Just thought that

{had to be in Compton soon

I gotta get drunk

before the day begins

Before my mother

starts bitching about my friends

A car pulls up

Who can it be?

A fresh El Camino

rolling Kilo G

He rolled down his window

andhe started to say

It's all about making

that G. T.A.

Costco security, motherfuckers!

Yo, man

Yo, man

Yo, man

Get the f*** out

Cruising down the street

in my six-fa '

Jacking the b*tches

Slapping the has

I went to the park

to get the scoop

Knuckleheads out there

Cold, shooting some hoop

'Cause the boys in the hood

are always hard

You come talking that trash
