A, an employee, comes to visit his boss, C, at home. W lives with C. W warms up microwave food for the men to eat. C speaks crudely to A about women. C and A argue about the methods they use at work; A prefers the new way, and C prefers the old way. They talk about pride. C pulls rank and ends the argument. A tells C that he likes W. W wants to borrow A’s car to look for her lost son in San Antonio. A grabs W and kisses her. C and A fight. A picks W up, they fight. A begs W to go with him and says he’ll help her find her son. She says she can’t. W and C say they love each other. They all sing.
