I dig that too. Frankly, whatever else you say about RUINS, this sequence is great. It also gives Jones at least a LITTLE cultural context.
I do think the person who posted this should have mentioned at the start the reason Rick is a junkie, because he's dying of cancer. Frankly, to consider someone sick who uses liquid morphine the same as a junkie(I'm thinking of his appearance and surroundings, which belie Ellis' attempt in the captions to explain; either way he's acting like one), which I think Ellis kinda does here, is a little insulting. That would mean my mom was a junkie the last two months of her life, and she wasn't.
