Nick felt that modern people on the east coast had completely lost their values chasing after money. Nick felt that...

I’ll make you another one next quarter! Jandro: Hm! How insufficient can you be? You useless little rat. *picks him up in his sleeve and punches him in the face, blood gushing out from his mouth* I’ll give you one more chance. Value it. Kim: Jandro, you’re too harsh. Please stop. Help him up, C’mon. Jandro: Shut up, Kim! Let’s leave this useless dog here. We’d be lucky enough if he gets caught by the guards after curfew. (Scene 2, Jandro walks out with his friend, but the boy was able to gather a little more strength to stand up and attempts to push Jandro, but Kim notices him and screamed, and Jandro turned around and pushed the boy instead.
