THE DEUCE by David Simon and George Pelecanos

 

STUART
Can I get a few minutes? I'll be ready again.
CANDY
One ticket, one ride.
You want to go again? It's only 30 for the second go.
The room's already paid.

STUART
I don't have 30.
We already all pooled what we had.
It was my birthday today.
CANDY
Yeah? Well, happy birthday to you.

STUART
Doesn't seem fair.

CANDY
Fair? You barely had to do anything.
And it costs just as much as someone who takes longer.
What do you do, Stuart? 

STUART
I'm in school.

CANDY
What's your daddy do? 

STUART
He sells cars.
He's got a dealership.

CANDY
And that's his job, right? Someone comes in, knows just the car he wants, 
doesn't dick around, doesn't need a long test drive, doesn't argue about the color or whatever, 
does he give him the car for less? Does he pay less than the guy who comes in, takes forever, 
gotta drive five or six cars, talk about radio, the whitewalls, everything else before he's done and 
ready to buy? No. He doesn't give the easy customer two cars for the price of one, right? 
This is my job, Stuart.
