However, Kerry might have to fire her grandfather for treating customers with disdain at the fast food restaurant. C.J. has a job as a security consultant at the mall, and he takes it very seriously. He then busts Bridget for going into the wrong movie theatre at the mall, interrogates her and tries to ban her from the mall (which he can't do). His supervisor (Inny Clemons) tells him that all he had to do was charge Bridget admission and let her go. Rory sells items on the Internet, but Cate gets angry when he sells too much.|
Kerry wants to go to a summer art program in Europe, so she has to get a job. After Kerry is promoted to assistant manager at a fast food restaurant in the mall, Jim wants to pay his fair share at Cate's house, and decides to go to work as well; so, he gets a job at the same restaurant Kerry works at.
C.J. interrogates Bridget and tries to ban her from the mall (which he can’t do). His supervisor (Inny Clemons) tells him that all he had to do was charge Bridget admission and let her go.
Rory sells items on the Internet, but Cate gets angry when he sells too much.
Rory: Besides, going to the Post Office is such a hassle.
C.J.: Well, it’s gonna be an even bigger hassle when people start cancelling checks, repossessing your couch, taking you to court, leaving you with no alternative but to change your name to initials. (everyone looks at him) Hypothetically.
Supervisor: (to C.J. about Bridget) What’s she doing here?
C.J.: Well, there was an interrogation, and...
Supervisor: Oh, no. C.J., you’re not still making them bust rhymes, are you? I told you, all you had to do was charge admission and let her go. (Bridget looks surprised)
Bridget: Wait, so you’re not banning me from the mall?
Supervisor: What are you talking about? We can’t do that. (he then turns to C.J., who looks down, a little chastened) Did you even read the oath?
