Subway map of the soul

Subway map of the Seoul

TONY
“You remember about the key for that submarine sandwich place just up the street, you know, the Subway’s there?”

PHILIP
“Dimly.”

TONY
“Well the store owner finally found out what happened.”

PHILIP
“Which was what?”

TONY
“You know, that I’d found their main front-door key just sitting there, right next to their front door in the middle of the night. So now the owner knows what happened back then, he’s been really decent to me plus now I get a foot-long sub every week, or I can have two six-inch ones on two different days if I prefer.”

“I met a homeless guy yesterday. I’d seen him before but I didn’t know he was homeless. He’s a nice guy so I told him that there was lots of wire in the alleyway [Tony points towards the alleyway nearby]. So he says that he’ll get me a bike rack in exchange for the wire.”

PHILIP
“How did you know he was looking for some wire?”

TONY
“Well, his shopping cart was full of wire.”
