They Keep Pulling Me Back In

They Keep Pulling Me Back In

Once a grocery man, always a grocery man. There is no leaving the business.

Unless you, you know, get an education or some shit. But who would do that?


[[Nate and Steve are talking on the living room. Steve is seated on the couch wearing a Mr. T shirt with the catchphrase “I pity the fool” on it, Nate is standing behind the couch]]
Steve: I hear you met Rose.
Nate: Shyeah. I had to thank Derek. A few minutes later and I’d have known her in the biblical sense.

Steve: Heh heh. So where are you headed now, the free clinic?
Nate: NO. I have to find a job.

[[Nate stands alone in front of a clear white background]]
Nate: I?m putting in an app at the food baron just to be on the safe side, but I really want to get out of the grocery business. They?re probably not hiring anyway.

[[Nate and a man in a shirt and tie, with an ID tag are talking with a supermarket serving as their background]]
Schneider: Can you start tomorrow?
Nate: Uh, sure.
