[Escalante is eating in the Delgado family's restaurant, speaking with them about Ana's decision to drop out of Garfield High]
She'll just get fat, waste her life away in your restaurant. You have to understand - she's a top student.
I started washing dishes for a nickel an hour. Now I own this place. Did *I* waste *my* life?
I washed dishes, too, when I first came to this country.
Good! Why don't you put on an apron and give us a hand?
...Ana could go to college, come back, and teach you how to run this place.
[He tears up the tab for Jaime's dinner]
Professor Escalante, I don't want your money. And I don't need your business.
[He reaches into his wallet, dropping the money on the table anyway]
Tip, for Ana. By the way, I notice you put hot chilies in your dip to sell extra beer - don't you?
