CARL: You wanna be a janitor? Oh, really?  You guys think I’m just some untouchable peasant?  Peon? huh?  Maybe so, but following a broom around after shitheads like you for the past eight years I’ve learned a couple of things… I look through your letters, I look through your lockers… I listen to your conversations, you don’t know that but I do… I am the eyes and ears of this institution my friends.  By the way, that clock’s twenty minutes fast!
