Chef’s Note: This scene just goes to show that you never know when you might meet the person who will change your life forever. It could even happen in a mall food court in Queens.
Chef’s Note: As a scholar I have been trained in the skills of both observation and analysis. As such, I find myself questioning the sincerity of Tandy’s assertion that she is “actually dying of old age waiting for some fries and a water”. She is not exhibiting any of the most common symptoms of dying of old age, so I think she may be engaged in some teenage hyperbole here.
Chef’s Note: That said, the much much more important question here is: What the freaking hell kind of restaurant is Assistant Manager Ty Johnson working at?!
They serve french fries – that much we know for sure. But much more troubling is the work uniform of the cashier, who is sporting a supposedly whimsical hat that absolutely and most clearly references Kermit the Frog, as does Ty’s name tag-
What is one to make of this? The answer is obvious when one recalls the events outlined in Kermit’s famous autobiography. This is clearly a NY franchise of Doc Hopper’s French Fried Frog Legs! Even worse, it’s in an evil alternate reality where Doc Hopper actually captured Kermit and forced him to be their mascot!
Oh Tyrone, the darkness was always within you!
