Garrett Quote #301
Garrett: [over PA] Attention Cloud 9 shoppers, we have a bit of an emergency...
Glenn: Garrett! Garrett! We need to make an announcement.
Garrett: I'm in the middle of something right now.
Glenn: This is urgent!
Dina: [grabs microphone] Attention, employees. We need you to assemble in the front of the store for a group photo in ten minutes.
Glenn: Give me that. [takes microphone] And look sharp! We... no! We have a chance to have CEO, Neil Penderson, in our store! This is not a prank.
Dina: Neil! Penderson!
Garrett: [takes microphone] As I was saying, there's a missing child. His name is Caden. He has brown hair, is eight years old, and is wearing overalls. So, uh, I guess those two things. Group photo. Missing kid.
Quote from Mateo
Mateo: [voice breaking] We were all so scared. And I made a promise to myself that day that if I survived, I would let the people that I love know how much they mean to me. Every. Day. [sobs]
Glenn: Okay, Mateo, you seem to be hitting the drama a little hard.
Mateo: Oh, [scoffs] okay. You said you wanted emotion. I gave you emotion.
Glenn: Well, maybe less emotion.
Mateo: All right, got it. No problem. [deep voice] It was chaos. People screaming. Debris flying everywhere like locusts. I started my shift a boy. But I clocked out a man...
Dina: Okay, that's good. That's good. I think we've seen enough. Moving on. Gonna move on.
Mateo: Wait, I'm sorry. Okay? I'm trying to do it normal, but it's... It was crazy when I think about that tornado. You know, it's... You think you know what it's like to be scared. But then when you feel true fear for the first time, it envelopes you and crushes you. But then it sort of comforts you. Like a hug, and I... I don't know, it's hard to explain, but it... Ugh. [voice breaking] Sorry.
Glenn: Aw. [notices the camera isn't recording] Are you kidding me right now?!
Quote from Glenn
Dina: You know what? I just don't feel anything when I look at it. I want to see tornado survivors.
Glenn: Right! Like on CNN Heroes, you get a sense of the struggle. This doesn't feel like CNN Heroes.
Garrett: Well, this is a still image, and that's a television show.
Dina: You know, I agree with Garrett. We should be doing a TV show.
Garrett: Not what I said.
Glenn: Oh, my God. I bet none of the other stores are doing a TV show.
Garrett: That seems excessive.
Dina: Excess leads to success.
Garrett: Well, that rhymes.
Glenn: Well, drop your concerns, Ken Burns. Let's do this!
Quote from Glenn
Glenn: Just a reminder that it's still Haitian Heritage Month. So if you have a customer and you think they might be Haitian, feel free to offer them a sticker. Also, it is Mother's Day this weekend, and corporate says mothers are in this year. So we're gonna be hitting that hard.
