Brian and Brick are out in the hurricane looking for food (see Idea #55). They find a grocery store. The power is out and therefore the automatic doors do not work. Brian pushes on the doors.
The doors are locked and the power's out. Should we keep looking or break-
Brick lifts a mailbox and throws it through the window as Brian says the word "break."
Was that a mailbox?
I think so.
They enter through the open window. Brian tries to lift the mailbox but it's too heavy. He then looks strangely at Brick.
There's a lot of food in here. Hey, we should bring some of this food back.
Yeah, that's why we're here.
If you didn't-Why did you break the window?
I don't know.
They each grab a cart and split up. Brian goes down a few aisles throwing random packaged food into the cart. When he turns the corner, Brick is standing by his empty cart eating an apple and reading a newspaper.
Brick, you have to put food in the cart. Stay focused. I want to get back as soon as possible. The storm looks like it's getting worse.
It is. According to this paper, the Padres lost five to four.
Just put food in the cart and let's go.
You can keep the apple.
With two carts full of food and garbage bags wrapped over the top to keep everything dry, Brian and Brick push towards the exit. When they get to the front, a police officer is standing there waiting for them.
Just hold it right there! Don't move!
