Both Johnny D and Palanca have things they do not enjoy about working for Design Tech. For Palanca, it is office work. Thankfully, he gets out of the office to remove a fire escape. Later he saves the day when a water main breaks. On the other hand, Johnny D would rather stay in the office, but is a good sport when he has to do manual labor assisting Palanca on the fire escape. And when problems arise with his second development project, 12th St, he is able to get dirty.
