the weather. I just want one that opens. [beeping]

Mitchell: Oh, oh, my God, Teddy. Cam, this is Teddy.

Mitchell: I never said that.

Jay: Gloria. Gloria, it's a cold. Anyway, look.
Jay: I know you've been wanting to get back out there, and I always thought that if you did go back
to work, you'd come back to work with me.
Claire: I-I worked there for half a summer 20 years ago. And it-
