       The orders placed by the group at Waffle House were as follows:

       Marie: Coffee. Black. Egg, bacon, cheese sandwich.
       Henry: Hash browns, with cheese, and ham, and... uh... Tomatoes! Yes, great big fucking tomatoes! And
chili. And coffee, black as from Satan’s teat.
       Kyle: The Master of Electricity shall have raisin toast and orange juice.
       Henry: Oh, yes, and orange juice, too. With vanilla syrup.
       Susan: I have a question.
       Waitress: Yes?
       Susan: A waffle’s, like, two dollars, right? And a second waffle is about another dollar... So how much does
the third waffle cost?
       Waitress: Nobody’s ever asked about the third waffle before...
       Susan: I’ll have the double waffle. And a Coke.
       Henry: And pie! I want pie! Apple pie.

       “Jeez, what are you on?” Susan interjected.
       “Five cans Red Bull. Made me stop at Speedway on way here.” responded Marie.

       “765,457 today,” Henry replied, as everyone stared at him, dumbfounded by his answer, to which he finally
added, “I like pie.”
       It was at this moment that Janet returned, bearing, among other things, pie.
       “Okay, I’ve got a black coffee and a bacon egg and cheese sandwich here, hash browns with chili, cheese,
ham, and great big fucking tomatoes, coffee from Satan’s teat, orange juice with vanilla syrup, and a slice of apple
pie here, raisin toast and orange juice here, and a double waffle and a coke here. Can I get anything else for you
       “No thanks, I’m fine.” answered Susan.
       “You call these great big fucking tomatoes? Bah!”
