This page describes the Doublemeat Palace as a "local burger joint." The script just says it is a "McDonald's style fast food restaurant, complete with drive-in lane." It seems to me it must be a chain, with those uniforms, including hats, and a company training video. Lorraine, when introducing herself, says "they" called her in when Manny disappeared. "They" must mean somebody higher up, working in another facility. I suppose it could be a local chain with just a handful of restaurants, but somehow I get the feeling it's supposed to be a large chain, with hundreds if not thousands of franchises. To be safe, what if we just described it as the script does?

Is DB Palace a local chain? Edit
I just thought of something. The Doublemeat Palace has custom-made cash registers which show pictures of the items on the menu. I know McDonald's uses registers like that. Would that be a sign that DB Palace is a large chain, large enough to have cash registers custom made?

- If you would re-watch the episode you notice that Buffy mention it's a chain "all over California".Ingsoc 02:33, October 10, 2010 (UTC)
It's Not Local Edit
Of course! I'd forgotten. At about 28:30, Buffy says "There are Doublemeat Palaces all over California." So no local burger joint.

I noticed that in the scene where buffy is learning to use the grill, she flips the burgers when they are done on one side and then starts to speak with the manager. From a distance, the burgers now appear to be completely raw. Should this be somehow added to the page?
