Part 6: The Weekend / Chapter 1

Jesse

  • Jesse steals a cement mixer and takes it to show off to his favorite vagrant, Duracell Dan.
  • He brings Dan with him—as a special treat—to torch a shed.
  • Dan doesn't find it as beautiful as Jesse does, though, and he's upset because there's another homeless person who lives in there.
  • Jesse rushes in and saves the guy, then runs away before the po-po arrive.
