  • Hello, everyone.

  • And welcome to your first day in the afterlife.

  • You were all, simply put, good people.

  • But how do we know that you were good?

  • How are we sure?

  • During your time on Earth, every one of your actions had a positive or a negative value, depending on how much good or bad that action put into the universe.

  • Every sandwich you ate, every time you bought a magazine, every single thing you did had an effect that rippled out over time and ultimately created some amount of good or bad.

  • You know how some people pull into the breakdown lane when there's traffic?

  • And they think to themselves, "Ah, who cares? No one's watching."

  • We were watching.

  • Surprise.

  • Anyway, when your time on Earth has ended, we calculate the total value of your life using our perfectly accurate measuring system.

  • Only the people with the very highest scores, the true cream of the crop, get to come here, to the Good Place.

  • What happens to everyone else, you ask?

  • Don't worry about it.

  • The point is, you are here because you lived one of the very best lives that could be lived.

  • And you won't be alone.

  • Your true soul mate is here too.

  • That's right.

  • Soul mates are real.

  • One of the other people in your neighborhood is your actual soul mate, and you will spend eternity together.

  • So welcome to eternal happiness.

  • Welcome to the Good Place.

  • Sponsored by: otters holding hands while they sleep.

  • You know the way you feel when you see a picture of two otters holding hands?

  • That's how you're gonna feel every day.

Hello, everyone.
