Shoe section. Channel Flipper is holding a wooden bat. He greets Jocko, whom he recognizes from his many fine football-field feats. Channel Flipper introduces himself as "Wade," a name even worse than "Channel Flipper." Think we'll stick with the CF. Jocko is all bashful when Channel Flipper lists some of Jocko's on-field accomplishments. It's revealed that Channel Flipper had a career-ending knee injury when he played football. He sympathizes with Jocko's current scholarship loss. Jocko says he doesn't want to be doing "this" store thing the rest of his life. Channel Flipper invites Jocko to a party that night. After some hesitation, Jocko says he'll be there. At one point, Channel Flipper is trying to convince Jocko, and screams, "FUN!" with big chipmunk teeth. Scary. Jocko relents and agrees to go to the "FUN!" party. And just like that, our brooding anti-hero has fallen in with a bad crowd.
Party. Quarters. Pitcher of beer. Heathen tells me she rules at Quarters, but I don't think we've ever played. Or rather, I don't think I've ever played. But Jocko seems to be good at it, as he proclaims himself "God of Quarters." Well, fine. I'm Buddha of Fivers. Loud music. Dark atmosphere. Channel Flipper offers to give his "bro" Jocko a tour. Jocko says their place is "awesome." Channel Flipper is excited that they can bring Jocko on. He tells Jocko that their life after football is just beginning. Some lukewarm girl comes up to Channel Flipper with a lime in her mouth. Channel Flipper takes a shot before sucking the lime from her mouth; then they kiss. Jocko looks very impressed. Lana's not big on the limes or the shots, or even the salacious kissing. "Trust me. It only gets better," Channel Flipper says. Does she use a cantaloupe slice next time?
