Jack's in a rut. Depression and severe anti-social behavior has whittled down his existence to sleeping and watching television. He spends his days in a diner, playing church bingo and sleeping.

Did You Know?
In one scene, Jack takes out an ancient knife and reads an inscription from it: "Legi convictio scientia veritate", which means, "knowledge of the law, conviction of the truth." See more
Jack recites a phrase in Vulgate Latin, "Leginum... Convictio... Scientia... Veritate," to mean basically, "Knowledge of the law, conviction of the truth." In actuality, this Latin translation is gibberish. "SCIENTIAM LEGIS CONVICTIONEM VERITATIS" would be the more appropriate way to write it (Romans didn't use punctuation or lowercase letters) and it would sound like "shy-EN-ti-em le-JI-s cum-VE-SI-tinam uer-ee-TA-tis." A character as old as Cain who lived during the time of the Romans would have spoken it fluently, and even if it was a little rusty, it wouldn't translate to gibberish. See more
