Role in episode

Pearl first goes here to apply for her first job. One of Pearl's friends, Marina, works here and directs Pearl to the manager's office, who is named Mr. Pepalino. Pearl attempts to get into the office to meet Pepalino but she cannot fit through the door.

Mr. Pepalino is then shown to be on Pearl's back but is accidentally thrown into the grease fryer. As he gets out, Mr. Pepalino says that they are not hiring.

Pearl is later shown sitting on a bench eating a Hotdog on a String from the restaurant, sad that she was not hired for any jobs, before deciding to apply at Grandma's Apron.
