Do you have the pickle relish?

< Previous | Next >


Two cops, Kellaway and Doyle, are on a lookout. We see Kellaway in the car, when Doyle comes back and asks Kellaway:
-- Do you have the pickle relish?
-- Doyle, get in the car.
-- But I ordered onion rings.
-- Doyle!

The Mask, movie

Does Doyle mean that Kellaway may have already ordered the relish and have it with him in the car?

Thank you.

    When eating fast food, pickle relish (mayonnaise, mustard, ketchup, salsa, etc) often comes in packets that you have to add yourself even though it is part of the meal you have ordered. If you want the pickle relish that comes with the hot dog (the reason for the "the"), you must take some of the packets. If you forget to take some of the packets, then you don't have the pickle relish (that should be part of the meal.)
