SIDNEY: No kidding. What do you do here?
SIDNEY: Excuse me?
QUINN: Attitude adjustment. We adjust your attitude.
(The brake repair is very expensive.)
SIDNEY: (sitting) But did you see what it’s going to cost to adjust my brakes?
QUINN: Work with me, okay? (sits beside Sidney) You have kids?
SIDNEY: Two. Oscar and Mabel.
QUINN: Ah … great names. I’ll bet they’re pretty special to you.
