Goofs

Bernard 'phones the shop to speak to Manny. We see the 'phone in the shop has its handset cable cut. In the 'phone kiosk Bernard hears the 'unobtainable' tone. That would happen only if the 'phone line to the shop was dis-connected, not because the handset was dis-connected. See more »

Quotes

[When working in a fast food restaurant]
