Garrett: Attention all Cloud 9 employees in all departments—please report to the breakroom for pizza. Because apparently, now, everyone gets pizza. Never mind that the basic infrastructure of this country makes it so that one group of people gets way more pizza than others! Or that some of us spend over four hundred years forcibly making pizza for white people!
Dina: This isn't about pizza, is it?
Jonah: No, I don't think so.
Isaac: Yes, I love pizza!
Dina: I think a lot of us want to help, but we just have blind spots when it comes to this stuff. I mean, when I was growing up, we were told the goal was to not see race.
Garrett: Okay, see, I don't know who started telling white people that -- I'm assuming it was other white people -- but you shouldn't ignore race. You should be aware of how being black affects our daily lives.
Dina: Man, I just thought I'd be so good at this.
Mateo: I'm sorry. Do you wanna talk about it?
Dina: I just did. Oh, you mean more? God, no. Look, I don't understand why everybody wants to talk everything to death. Like, whatever happened to just taking a baseball bat to your neighbor's trash can?
Mateo: This job is hard enough. People need to talk, to vent, to feel heard! It's like they're emotionally constipated, and some of them are very physically bloated as well.
Dina: What, so, because I'm manager, I have to help people poop their emotions all over the place?
Garrett: I'm not talking about that; I'm talking about you bailing on work.
Jonah: You bail on work all the time!
Garrett: I don't bail on work. I half-ass it; there's a difference.
Okay, I'm manager today, so if they smelt it, it's as though I dealt it. I need you two to locate this and eliminate it.Dina
Look, I get that Glenn likes to coddle everyone, but it is my store today. So while I have the chance, I am going to do everything the right way.Dina
Jonah: So, Cloud 9 just thinks that the pandemic is over? Because I'm pretty sure nobody told the pandemic that.
Garrett: You gotta look at it from corporate's perspective. They love money, and they don't care if we die.
Jonah: Ah, yeah, that makes sense.
Glenn: We're having an election! Oh, Jonah and Cheyenne want to be floor supervisors, so we're gonna let the people decide.
Dina: The people? Glenn, the people are idiots. Oh, don't look at me like that. You know.
No, no, it's my first meeting, and already I'm upsetting everyone. And now I'm stressed, and I promised Jerusha that if this should happen, I would remove myself from the situation.Glenn
Dina: So, Jonah wants to be the new floor supervisor.
Cheyenne: Oh, cool.
Dina: Yeah, I guess I just hoped that someone else would throw their hat in the ring, you know? Someone chill, someone who isn't a white male that reeks of privilege.
Cheyenne: Yeah, but it's hard, though, right? 'Cause of like, systemic stuff.
Dina: Mhmm, true dat, true dat.
