  • - The only people stupider

  • than the people who claim climate change isn't real

  • are the people who think we can do anything about it.

  • - Wow.

  • - The paper straw.

  • Works terribly.

  • Doesn't make a lick of difference but...

  • it makes people feel like they're doing their parts.

  • - Mm.

  • - Can anyone see where I'm going with this?

  • - Uh, you wanna make money

  • by coming up with a product

  • that doesn't really help the environment

  • but makes people feel morally superior for buying it?

  • - Ding, ding, ding! Way to go, Jane.

  • [chuckles] - Yes.

  • - [sips] Oh.

  • This coffee is wretched and foul.

  • - It sounds like the start of a limerick.

  • - [scoffs]

  • - This coffee is wretched and foul.

  • The maker of this brew should...

  • - Throw in the towel.

  • - [laughs] Nice.

  • - We should say this to Tammy.

  • Maybe she'll take the hint,

  • and start making better coffee.

  • - I don't know.

  • Face to face confrontation feels a little aggressive.

  • I wish there was something in between

  • being passive and being aggressive.

  • - Drinky, drinky.

  • - I just don't know the term for it.

  • - Since someone's done the paper straw,

  • why don't we do a plastic straw?

  • - I was just thinking that. Yeah.

  • Great idea, Kev. - Mm.

  • - John, that doesn't make any sense.

  • Plastic straws are the problem. - Problem, yeah.

  • You know I was just thinking that?

  • But piggybacking off Kev's idea...

  • - Yeah. - About plastic straws.

  • What about--does--does wooden straws make sense?

  • - People feel guilty about their cars and the environment.

  • What if we did Lyft but with-- I don't know--horses?

  • - Horses. Yep.

  • I was just thinking that.

  • Great idea, both of us.

  • Mostly me.

  • [door whines, blinds click]

  • [water bubbling]

  • [light music]

  • - Also, have you noticed

  • that Jake's been ending conversations

  • by saying, "Peace" now?

  • - [laughs] - Where did that come from?

  • - As long as it means he's leaving the room,

  • I'm fine with whatever he says.

  • - You know, it's funny. I was just thinking that.

  • - You know, that's hilarious.

  • Because I was just thinking

  • that you were just thinking that.

  • [both laughing]

  • Oh!

  • I almost forgot to tell you.

  • I saw John drop

  • a comb

  • out of his breast pocket yesterday.

  • - What?

  • Hair comb or honey comb?

  • - A honey comb would've been less weird.

  • I tried giving it back to him,

  • and he vehemently denied that it was his.

  • - Oh, my God.

  • We have to get to the bottom of this.

  • - If I get any leads,

  • you will be the first to know.

  • [dish clinks]

  • [phones ringing distantly]

  • [suspenseful music]

  • - "The coffee here is wretched and foul.

  • "The maker of the coffee should throw in the towel.

  • "Let someone else make our brew

  • "so we don't feel like we're going to spew

  • chunks"?

  • - Pretty creative, huh?

  • - It's not gonna make the coffee better,

  • but at least you're hurting someone's feelings.

  • - Eh, that's a win too.

  • Hi, Tammy. - Hey, Tammy.

  • - Hey, Matt. Hey, Jake.

  • [horror music]

  • - Oh, uh, I guess we should get back to the grind.

  • - Peace.

  • [muffled upbeat pop rock music]

  • - Oh.

  • - Good morning.

  • I'm sorry. Excuse me.

  • Sir Mr. DeVille, Leader of Men.

  • [keys clacking] Oh, my God.

  • I figured out the mystery

  • with John and the comb.

  • I can't wait to tell you.

  • And...send.
