Flynn and Helen are frequent guests of a particular pizzeria in Canada that offers free prize tickets on their pizza boxes. Flynn, Helen’s boyfriend, goes to great lengths to find as many of these tickets as he can — even rummaging through the trash to find discarded and unpeeled tickets. Helen finds this extremely embarrassing and feels that no slice of pie is worth the disgraceful effort of dumpster diving. Is Flynn’s treasure hunt for free prizes an admirable quest? Is Helen’s embarrassment of her boyfriend’s trash digging ways justifiable? Only one man can decide!
