Eager to learn.

Also, I want you to know

I've been a company man

all my life.

I'm loyal, I'm trustworthy,

and I'm good in a crisis.

And I love that

you're right here in Brooklyn.

I've lived here all my life,

and lately I feel

I may not be hip enough

to live in Brooklyn,

so this could help

with that, too.

I read once,

musicians don't retire.

They stop when there's

no more music in them.

Well, I still have

music in me,

absolutely positive

about that.

Good news,

I found a size eight in navy.

No, you are right.

That package

should have arrived by now.

Let me track that for you.

Yep, these pants are awesome

if you have hips.

Super slimming.

Okay, let me

just review this with you.

You have six bridesmaids.

You ordered six

of the silk chiffon

Antoinette dresses in pink.

The wedding is in three days,

and the dresses just arrived

all in charcoal gray,

which we don't even sell,

so that is a bit of a mystery.

Okay, here's what

we're gonna do about this.

I am gonna call the vendor

and have this fixed today.

I will personally

see the dresses

before they are Fed Exed,

and I promise you they will

be at your front door

by 9:
00 a.m. Friday, okay?

You know what, let me give you

my cell just in case,


Oh, thank you so much

for your patience,

and I am gonna refund you back

all your money. it's the...


Okay, hey, you check

this one off your list, okay?

This is done.

And, Rachel,

have a great wedding.

Oh, my God,

how did that happen?


I know, I know,

I'm late for something.

Yeah, everything.

You see why I take

customer service calls?

I mean, it's so good.

You learn so much.

Okay, what's up?

What am I doing?

Okay, Cameron was waiting for

you, but had another meeting.

He said he'll be back at 2:00.
