When times are tough, the tough get going. Learn how in this episode. Slow dialog: 1:16 Explanations: 3:12 Fast dialog: 16:05 Luisa: Are you still here? I thought you got off at 3:00. Max: I picked up a second shift. I could use the money. Luisa: But I thought you had another part-time job in the evenings. Max: I normally do, but the restaurant where I work has been cutting back my hours, so I’m trying to pick up as many extra shifts here as I can. Luisa: And don’t you work at the amusement park on the weekend? Max: I do half the year, but it’s winter and the park only keeps a skeleton crew on during these months. In the meantime, I’m working for a temp agency, which gives me short-term assignments. Luisa: I don’t know how you juggle all these jobs. Max: I have no choice. I have to piece together an income if I want to pay rent. Luisa: Have you ever thought about going back to school to qualify for other work, something full-time? Max: Sure, all the time. I’d like a better job, one with benefits and a reliable salary. Luisa: What’s stopping you? Max: I have to pay for something called “food,” and I haven’t met my fairy godmother yet!

In a time where we're all threatened by a rhetoric of hate from the people in power; A Gay And A NonGay challenges many of our differences head on and promises that no matter who you are, or what you're into (Bruce Springsteen or Britney), love is love and gay and nongays can be friends.
