It's funny, but I always saw the diner as a refuge against the outside loneliness of the street. The diner is inviting to the passer-by, even though there is no community or joy to be found inside it. You know that you can buy pie and coffee for just a little money, and so have a 'place' to be in the night. It's an anonymous kind of belonging, but comforting in its impersonality.
