Pete is the older brother of Donald and works in real estate where he earns a fairly large sum of money He cares for two beautiful daughters and enjoys sailing on a nice sunny day on the ocean which he sees every morning from his bedroom window He drives to work in his brand new luxury car with the window open the wind blowing through his hair smiling with delight at the people whom he calls his friends Pete has everything going for him and some might even describe him as a man who fulfilled the American dream However as the slogan of the movie American Beauty would say Look closer and when one does excessive brotherly competition and Petes deep inner conflicts begin to surface While Pete seemed to live a normal gratifying life at home his excursion to pick up his brother Donald leads to some thought about Petes inner-self When Pete comes to get Donald he learns that Donald owes money to some people for sandwiches and coffee He quickly thrusts his hand into his pocket to throw one hundred dollars in Donalds hand Donald acting as if appalled by the money tried to give some of it back to his brother yet Pete shoves it right back at him calling the money nickels and dimes While he knows that his brothers pockets are empty it seems as if Pete enjoys forcing money into Donalds hands to display his wealth because of the vast amount of jealousy between the two Pete uses money as a weapon against his brother and to show that he will always be a few more notches up the ladder than Donald Yet Donald who still attempts to show love for his brother grabs Pete an orange soda for the long trip home The story takes another turn when Donald hops out of the car to get bags and spills the orange
