by f1nc0 [Seagulls squawking] [Door chimes] Thanks for coming.
- Hey, Sadie! - Hey, Steven.
What'll it be? Sorry to be a pain, but I got kind of a long order.
I hope it's not too much trouble.
What trouble? [Chuckles] I'm a professional doughnut girl.
Okay I'll have one jelly doughnut with powdered sugar on the side, three chocolate frosted, one frosted chocolate, two chocolate-frosted chocolate, one dog-nut medium well one coffee with milk and sugar, hold the coffee.
I also have several methods of payment I'd like you to split this order across evenly.
- Uh, what's all this for? - Band practice.
- You're in a band?! - Kinda.
I started jamming with Jenny, Buck, and Sour Cream! Whoa! That's so cool! Aw, man! I bet you guys sound amazing! We're still trying to figure out our sound, but it's been fun just playing music with other people.
It's also nice to have an outlet that doesn't involve space and gem stuff and everything else going on.
Um You doing okay? Well, I worry about Lars being in space, and I hope he's safe and all but [Sighs] Working all these shifts by myself has been a huge drag.
I'm totally used to doing his work, but I'm used to at least having him here to talk to.
Now I got to do that myself, too.
Oh, come on, Sadie, you missed a spot! Oh, no, sorry.
Well, we'll all be practicing at Sour Cream's place tonight.
- Feel free to stop by if you have time.
- I'll try! Hopefully I can finish restocking napkins early.
We're always running out, for some reason.
Hmm, weird.
Well, see ya, Sadie! Bye, Steven.
[Electronic beats playing] What do ya call that style? - Beach core.
- Buck: Hey.
- What's up, Buck? - Guess who's got a gig at Delmarva's number-two music and seafood festival this weekend?! Chuji and the Woo Woos? - Jack and the Frosted Tips? - 7-Force? No, us! All: What?! - We don't even have a name yet! - Or a set list! Or even one single song to put on a set list! [Sighs] Guess we got a lot of work to do.
What if we went for a more of a rap-a-billy style? - No, thanks.
- How about something like Here we are Our hearts combining Music and friends, our souls aligning Buck: Hold on, Steven.
You got a really cool sentiment going on that can resonate with a wide audience.
I just feel like this seafood festival needs to hear something challenging and provocative.
Check this out.
[Guitar strumming] Doo-doo Butt The government - # Corrupts # - Jenny: Hold on there, Bucky D.
I'm all for being socially conscious and waking people up inside, but people are gonna be at this seafood fest to have fun! Let's give them something they can dance to! - Sour Cream, give me a beat! - A what? A beat! [Echoing] # Beat # Oh, yeah! Let's spice it up! [Funky riff plays] Cool! Yeah! And then how about some [Screeching tones play] - What the heck, Sour Cream?! - What? Can't let your audience get too comfortable.
Maybe we should just call it a night and try again tomorrow.
- Agreed.
- Sadie: Oh, hey, guys! Sorry I'm so late.
Took longer to close up than I thought it would.
- Y'all still practicing? - Oh, sorry, Sadie, we just wrapped up.
- We were getting nowhere.
- Aw, shoot! I really wanted to hear you guys.
Well, let me know if you have another band practice when I'm not working.
- See ya, guys.
- Bye, Sadie! - Later.
- Bye, Sadie.
See ya, girl.
[Dog barking in distance] [Sprinkler whirring] - Steven: Hi, Sadie! - S'up? - Hey, how's it goin'? - Hey, girl.
Whoa! Hey, guys! I just got home from work.
[Chuckles] We know.
We followed you.
Sorry if that's weird.
We know how busy your schedule is, so we decided to bring the jam to you.
Aw, shucks, guys! But [Groans nervously] My room is such a mess right now.
Okay, ah, okay, just give me a moment to tidy up! Dang, Sadie! You've got so much space in here! Yo, Sadie, do you have any free outlets to plug into? - Oh, yeah, check over by the TV.
- Let's get serious now.
- The show is this weekend! - Wait I can't really feel the music in this cramped spot.
- This looks comfy.
- No, wait! [Crunch] Aw, doo-doo.
I think I broke your bed.
[Grunts] Sour Cream: Whoa! Scary movies! Hey, Sadie, you've got a dark side.
It's more of a dork side.
Jenny: Hey, is that "The Lurch"? - You know this one? - Yeah! It's a classic! I can't believe you have a copy! Guys, we have to watch this.
Brains! [Groaning] [Screams] I can't believe you like this one.
Not everyone appreciates Bulgarian horror.
Uh, guys, don't we need to find our sound? I kind of like this sound.
[Eerie music playing] [Dark electronic beat plays] Ooh.
I like that.
[Bass playing] And then, we can do this.
[Guitar strumming] Now we just need some provocative lyrics.
Tired - # From work # - Nice.
[Chuckles] Hate My job [Guitar playing] I really oughta be in mourning But I've got another shift this morning Everyday feels like it's never-ending What's the point of all this time I'm spending Here At this Dead-end job Oh We are the working dead And we lurch for minimum wage But I'd really rather be Eating your brain Look at you you seem so bright and healthy And your minds are full of joy and wonder Stay a thousand miles from the condition That I've got from all the stress I'm under Don't come near me or you might encourage All these terrifying sudden urges Seeing you makes skipping work so tempting Don't you know that in the night, I'm temping Here At this Dead-end job Oh We are the working dead And we lurch for minimum wage But I'd really rather be Eating your brain [Woman screaming] - Whoa! - Whoa! - Sadie, that was awesome! - Yeah, girl, yeah! That was so rad! You're not Sadie Miller, you're Sadie Killer.
This is it! This is our sound! Sadie, you should be our frontman! Really?! [Chuckling] Wow, I Uh, wait, no, I can't.
Ugh, I've got to work tomorrow.
Actually, you guys should probably pack up.
I got to get some rest before my shift.
Aw, doo-doo.
[Seagulls squawking] [Door chimes] Hey.
What're you doing here? I was just wondering if I could get some advice.
We've been trying to write some more spooky songs without you, but they sound so phony coming from me.
Rawr, I'm a bad, bad boy! Yeesh.
I don't know.
I can't do it like you.
You got any tips? Let's see.
First, lose your youth to your boring job.
Then lose the only person you've ever felt truly close to.
And then lose your mind working all his shifts.
I don't think I can do all that before the show tomorrow.
[Chuckles nervously] Are you sure you can't come? I'm the only employee at the shop.
I can't just leave.
Singing is fun, and being in the band would be really fun like the most fun ever.
B-But a lot of things could be a lot of things.
This job is a drag, but at last I know it's a drag.
It's normal.
There's something nice about that, you know? Hanging out, singing and stuff, it feels so not normal.
It's like you ever feel so bad that you feel good? Like when you get so cold that it burns.
Sometimes I just want to scream my guts out.
Well, no not my guts, but whatever thing is squirming around in my guts.
Wow! That That's poetry! You're such a natural at this.
All right, I'll try my best.
How's this? Hate my job, hate my job Obligations No vacations Kinda sa-a-a-d Do I really sound like that? No, no, y-you sing it like it's really a problem for you.
Don't worry, I'll get it, I promise.
Squirming in my guts I got to sell doughnuts Big doughnut [Humming] [Insects chirping] I can't believe your car can hold all these amps.
- Hey, guys.
- Hey, it's Steven Universe.
Is that the scariest jacket you could find? Mm-hmm.
Hope it doesn't scare anyone too much.
- So no Sadie Killer, huh? - 'Fraid not.
She's just - too busy with work.
- Aw, man! This gig won't be the same without her.
All right, Steven, you're gonna have to up your scary game to fill Sadie's shoes.
Got it! Rawr! You can't help being cute, no more than I can help being cool.
Let's go.
[Engine starts] Okay.
Jenny: Buckle up, y'all.
Hope the seafood at this thing is good.
So where is this place exactly? Buck: I gave you the directions.
Oh, that tiny piece of paper? Where'd I put it? - Did it fall under the seat? - I don't see it back here.
Yo, what if this was all a dream? - [Groans] This is not - Sadie: Hey! Wait up! [Panting] - Sadie! - Sadie! [Panting] I can do it! I can do the show! I can come! - All right! Yeah! - Oh, thank goodness! And I can come to practice, and I can come to the next show and the show after that! But, Sadie, don't you have work? Ha! I quit! sync & corr.
