“Welcome to Shenaniganz, how many are in your party?” is likely not even how the hostess would greet us in the restaurant from the Waiting movie. I would anticipate something far more crass especially if Monty is running around being…well Monty. As someone who has worked in service, there are so many relatable banter points, games inside and outside the place of business, and interactions with peers and superiors that just rings the truth bell very loudly.
Whether you are a sarcastic jokester like Monty, an unprovoked knowledge dispenser like Bishop, a perpetual anger cauldron like Floyd, or a flip-switch like Naomi, you’re going to find some great laughs and if you’re lucky you’ll be able to answer confidently: What sets the ordinary apart from the extraordinary? Just that little extra *insert Ryan Reynolds wink face*

1. Bishop: Naomi, you know, if you ever want counseling in anger management or alcoholism, I’d be more than glad to do it for you.
Naomi: You’d do that for me? Thank you, I appreciate that, but I think I’d rather you just wash the fucking dishes and shut the fuck up. Fucking psychobabble bullshit asshole!
2. Monty: Everyone knows that I’m orally fixated and you can’t deny that I played your vagina like a violin.
Serena: As if that somehow negates the face that once we moved past foreplay you turned into the little engine that couldn’t hold its load.
3. Monty: You know, Tyla, every time I look at you I wish I was a lesbian.
Tyla: Oh, what a coincidence. Every time I look at you I’m glad I’m a lesbian.
4. Amy: I just don’t understand what would compel a person to be such a bitch to a total stranger.
Monty: Maybe she was abused as a child.
Amy: Oh God I fucking hope so.
5. Serena: The only real pleasure I ever got from having sex with you came from making fun of it later with my friends. Tell him, Amy.
Amy: It’s true, we laughed a lot at your expense.

Raddimus: Not just any piece of meat, baby, a prime rib.
