    On the one hand: waiters can't control the menu. On the other hand: he gave her a solid loophole that would have worked just fine.

    Something similar happened to me at Togo's Sandwich Shop. They got rid of their BLT and changed it to bacon and turkey. I went in and said I want a BLT. The employee said if it was not on the menu they didn't have it. It took another employee to tell him it was number such and such minus the turkey.
    Some people operate like robots, and seem almost happy to do so.

    This scene seemed so badass when I was a teenager and saw this movie on VHS at a birthday party. Now 20 years later I find that I feel more badly for the waitress who while she's a bit of a bitch is still just trying to follow the rules and do her job. Restaurants these days are generally more accommodating than this so it probably wouldn't have come to that. Still, I'm pretty unimpressed with Jack Nicholson's character here.

    Should've asked to see the manager. Now he's committed a crime, he's still hungry, and he still has to put up with that ugly, white-trash whore.

    I looked up this clip because my wife just came back from Kate Spade — she had 4 items at checkout — 1 was a gift for my daughter's friend who graduated. My wife asked at checkout for a separate bag (paper bag with Kate Spade logo) for the gift item. The salesperson at checkout refused — "Only 1 bag per customer" he insisted — My wife's argument — what if I had 10 items, would you stuff them all in one bag? — what if I purchase one, and then get back in line? What if I left the store put my first purchase in my car and came back for a second purchase? To all scenarios he said as long as they recognized her they would not give a second bag. Absolutely refused. My wife (who normally is extremely polite and non-assertive) reached her boiling point and walked out telling them they just lost a customer. #NeverShopKateSpade !!!

    I don't really understand the insult "I want you to hold it between your knees". English isn't my first language, and besides it sounding a weird thing to say, I don't see why it's offensive. Somebody help? 🙂

    Having just seen the move I can say that this is really the only scene worth viewing. The rest of the film is a snail paced pretentious "character study" that only hipsters and film making students could endure for more than 5 minutes.

    It would be refreshing if many more people thought a little harder when viewing this film, instead of just discarding it as a pretentious character study, it's a very frank depiction of emotional trauma and alienation. Bobby Dupea is a not a whiney proto-hipster. For a start, he is genuinely very intelligent, which is a far cry from your average narcissistic gameboy-wearing, fairtrade-buying buffoon you find propping up coffee shops and talking about everything in superfluously abstract and ultimately shallow terms. He's emotionally dysregulated, and understandably resentful and pissed off with his family's snobbery and the fact that they only really care about him meeting certain standards, as opposed to genuinely caring about him as a person. Rayette is well-meaning but also selfish in her own way because she's so needy, and it drains Bobby psychologically. I'm not saying he's sweetness and light and completely misunderstood, he has a lot of asshole qualities, but they are qualities that a lot more people would admit to identifying with if they were a tad more honest. And yes, after he came up with the chicken salad sandwich compromise, the waitress should have said 'fair enough'. I work in service and I would have done that, its so insignificant and the motherfucker just wants a bit of toast, not the rights to your firstborn.
