This man looks mean. He doesn't have a smile on his face. But maybe he is thinking.
He looks like he is from Slovakia or Jerusalem maybe. But he is in New York City.
Is this scene a protest? What is that flag--American? It must be an American flag with fringe on it. Bonnie sees the stars which would be on a field of blue. He may be in a parade.
Look at the cars that are backed up because of the parade. The cars are old--Edsels, maybe, and the scene takes place in the Bronx, Grace asserts.
The man's name is "Jim" says Ralph. No, his name is "Ralph" says Jim, so we are calling him Jim whose nickname is Ralph. Jim is in his 40s and he's wearing a hair-piece. He looks disgusted, even though he is strong and powerful. We wouldn't want to meet him in a dark alley!
We hear the beeping of car horns and the happy sounds of people talking. Behind Jim is a restaurant, and we smell car exhaust fumes, beer, and food smells from the restaurant.
It is summertime, but there is no wind blowing for the flag is still. The people are not dressed for a parade. Ah! Perhaps it is a funeral! That would explain the cars back there, and there is a hearse, too.
Perhaps it is the funeral of a serviceman.
Jim is upset--he is not mean but upset. It is one of his friends who has died. His jaw is set to control his emotion. He is wearing some patch or medal on his jacket for his military service.
After this moment, Jim will take a beer to his friend. This is Jim's way of honoring his buddy or relative.
