The life of an overweight, unhappy cook is changed after a kind, beautiful college drop-out comes to work as a waitress at his and his mother's road-side restaurant.
Charles Thompson (aka Frank Black) of the Pixies says on a deleted scene of loudQUIETloud: A Film About the Pixies (2006), that he was approached for the part of Victor. He turned it down, saying he "didn't want to play that type of character".
Can't you be nicer to her?
Delores: Nice? Did you hear what she said to me?
Victor: You don't have to be nice... just nicer.
Victor is walking across a bridge toward the camera with a bag of groceries in one arm and just before he stops to look over the side, a fuzzy mike cover can be seen briefly in the bottom left corner of the shot.
