In the dark, Jess finishes cleaning tables at the diner. He's listening to Bowie's "Suffragette City." Neverwood enters. Jess tells him that they're closed: "Learn to read." He identifies Neverwood as "The Loser Coffee Guy." Neverwood says he'll take the moniker. Once again, Jess tells him that they're closed. "I'm your father," Neverwood says all in the middle of Jess's line. "What?" Jess asks. "I'm...your..." Jess: "Are you sure?" Neverwood: "Am I...? Yes. I'm sure." He says he didn't mean to spring this news on him, figuring that Luke would have told Jess his father was in town after Luke saw him yesterday. Then they try to pull that "Because you're still doing the staring with the frown thing." First of all, no, that line doesn't work on that actor. And secondly, of course Luke wouldn't have told Jess, since he told Neverwood to get the fuck out of Dodge before Jess found out he was there. Neverwood tells Jess he looks different. Jess asks if Neverwood wants some coffee. Neverwood says he does. Jess pours Neverwood some coffee. "It's old," Jess says. They sit down. They have nothing to say to each other. They bop their heads to the music for a few notes. They both mouth along with, "Wham bam, thank you, ma'am!" Then Neverwood storms out of there. Jess sets his jaw. Neverwood doesn't even shut the door. Hey, Neverwood! You forgot your spinoff actor!
