Middle Class Rut

I hate just showing up like this but…                                                                                                  Here again?
Been having problems with our landlord. Kelly got her hours slashed, and my unemployment is drying up fast.
Nowhere else to go?
We’ll leave before you even notice us at all. Listen, if not, I know someplace in…
Angie won’t mind. Come in.

So he’s taking you to court over a…water heater?
That’s the gist of it.                                                                                                                         Well, son-of-a-bitch
This coronavirus cost me my job.
Why don’t I replace the water heater?
I couldn’t ask you to do that.
I won’t take no for an answer.
Well, we are in a rut.
It’s called the middle-class rut.
