GRUNION: So, where are ya from? What are ya doin here in the big city?
Z: Huh? Oh...okay...we're doing that pretend thing. I'm here on business and I'm kind of in a hurry so can you step on it-and don't take the cross town expressway. I'm not some rube tourist!
GRUNION: Yes, sir. No problem. So...you got any kids?
Z: *sigh Look-I really don't want to talk-
GRUNION: Yeah. I've got 4 kids myself. The wife has to stay at home taking care of em and I never get to see em and I'm in this taxi all the time just tryin to make ends meet.
GRUNION: My youngest two are....*sniff...kinda sick right now and I don't know how-
Z: Hey man, I know you're just tryin to shine me up with this drivel to get a better tip but you should know that I don't tip so you can clam up.
GRUNION: No tip?
GRUNION: Then you're outta here!
Z: That was totally rad! Let's do it again. This time I'll be a bunch of drunk sorority girls!
