Role in the film
Bucky and Pronk are seen briefly when Judy is shown to her apartment, quickly revealing themselves to be loud and argumentative next-door neighbors. Later, when Judy is back in her apartment after a rough first day at work and her parents call, Bucky and Pronk overhear the conversation through the thin walls and offer some gruff commentary. Pronk rudely tells Judy to turn off the "depressing music" while Bucky is more sympathetic, stating that he needs to lay off because she "feels like a failure." The two then proceed to yell at each other to shut up. When Judy tells himself that tomorrow is another day, Pronk tells him that tomorrow may be worse.
