“They are, Bobby. This is it.”

“You didn’t hear about the Maryland thing?”

“What Maryland thing?”

“I dunno, man. They’re making a movie, or having a festival, or…it’s something. But there are checks.”

“There are checks?”

“Big ones.”

“How big?”

“You couldn’t cash them at the liquor store.”

“I do love crab cakes.”

“And checks.”

“Bobby, as God is my witness: I love nothing more than a large check made out to me. No, wait: large check made out to cash.”

“Right. So, we gotta backtrack on that ‘last show’ thing.”

“Just tell everyone I was drunk when I said it.”

“You were drunk when you said it.”

“Oh, so the story should be easy to remember. Get out there and control this damage, Bobbarino.”
