Scene 51

  • Now we're at Mr. Smiley's, the fast food joint where Lester applied for a job.
  • Lester is flipping burgers when he hears a familiar voice over the drive-thru intercom.
  • So he walks over to the window to deliver the order and finds Carolyn necking with Buddy in a car.
  • When he finally has their attention, he tells Buddy, "Something tells me you're going to remember me this time."
  • Lester's coworker, Janine, tells Carolyn, "You are so busted."
  • Lester is totally glib about the whole situation and says he wants her to be happy—but he tells her she doesn't get to tell him what to do anymore.
