PARIS: A D however, that would be cause for concern.
LOUISE: A cry for help.
PARIS: A job application at McDonald’s.
LOUISE: Would you like fries with that?
McDonald’s is a global-dominating chain of hamburger and fast food restaurants first founded by Richard and Maurice McDonald in 1940. It was franchised by Ray Kroc in 1955, and he later bought the business from the McDonald brothers, bringing in the aggressive business tactics the company is know for today.
“Would you like fries with that?” is a question commonly asked by McDonald’s employees, in an attempt to further boost sales. The phrase is often used to mock McDonald’s and their workers. At Chilton, working in the fast food industry is clearly a fate worse than death.
