I posted this before a while back, and I remember Smalls said something along the lines of...
" A sense of familiarity is a good ting. I like knowing that the Dude abides." I think I've come up with a pretty good arguement why that is in fact moot.
Dante Hicks was NOT HAPPY. Clerks was about total lifestyle discontentment (I think, thats what it was about to me) underneath all the oral sex and hockey jokes. So the idea that Dante Hicks is STILL working at Quick Stop is depressing. It just is. While it's fully realistic, I don't want to think all the events in Clerks were for naught. I want to think Dante got his shit together and got out of that hell hole.
So, my vain hope is that when i go to see Jay and Silent Bob Strikes Back that I won't see Dante still working at Quickstop. I don't care what he's doing- just not working there would be good.
I spose this could be looking too much into it, but I'm not gonna care as much if Holden and Banky are friends again. I won't care if Hunting got... whatshername. But the whole ending to Clerks made me believe Dante was going somewhere now (I'm aware he got shot in the original cut, but it WAS cut, so fuck that, he lived and he's supposed to grow). And if he hasn't.... I dunno. Whatever. Just hoping.
