Jimmy gives his part of the story about how he and Oliver were heading downtown. The train was insane. Hundreds of people were trying to get on the train or to buy the ticket to take the subway. The trains were also severely delayed. A train finally showed up and it was sardine like. JAMMED PACKED. Jimmy decided to just go to Burbank.
