We kept our heads down and grinded... (35.38)

Taylor: You came to help me with the algorithm?

Oscar: To keep you company. You don't need my help.

Taylor: I'm grateful, but I have to wonder if this is really the best use of your time. Or your jet.

Oscar: This morning you got me thinking about my first job in Silicon Valley. The whole time I worked there, we never knew if the company was gonna be alive at the end of the day.

Taylor: So?

Oscar: We kept our heads down and grinded. My work was exciting. But there were nights I'd be in my cube, the only one around. I remember feeling like it would've been nice to have someone around to play Dragon Quest with.

Taylor: We'll go to my place. I'll get my coat.
