You’re new, did Sals hire you – the manager?
Oh, I’m always here, propping up the bar. Ain’t that the lie now? It’s propping me, of course.
Used to be two of us, Johnny and me, til Johnny missed one too many protection payments. They didn’t mean to kill him, just beat him up a bit. But his heart…
‘Course was years ago, now it’s just me. Me and my drinkie, here.
None of your business if I’ve had too many.
What’d’ya mean haven’t I a home to go to?
I’m home already. I own this damn bar.
