A little context to the scene:

Sebastian and Erika have just survived a mentally and physically gruelling ordeal. On the way back to the cult, they stop to regroup at a small town diner, where they and their supernatural worries seem wildly out of place. One of the waitresses is mildly passive aggressive, and Sebastian accidentally strikes a nerve.
