(INDISTINCT CHATTER)

(YAWNING)

MAN:
Are you kidding me?

EZRA:
Oh, Josh!

Sorry I'm late.

That's all right.

Office holiday breakfast.

You guys have parties

at 10:
30 in the morning?

EZRA:
Less liability.

Apparently, people don't

get drunk before noon.

- Mmm.

- It's boring as shit.

But the partners

want us there, so...

Sure.

Anyways,

after a year of negotiation,

your divorce is finalised.

These are the terms

we agreed to.

The alimony,

the house. Sorry.

Don't worry about it.

It's only money.

It is only

all of the money.

But it's the season

for giving, right?

I know how you feel.

Oh, yeah? I didn't know

you were divorced.

Oh, God, no.

That'd be crushing.

- Hmm.

- But I get it.

On one level,

it must seem like, uh,

"I'm signing away

a huge chunk of my life

"that I'm never getting back."

JOSH:
Mmm-hmm.

That's it? No other level?

- No, that's it. Uh, initials.

- Oh.

Hey. There are good things

ahead for you, okay?

- Yeah. Oh.

- Come here.

- Thank you. Thanks, buddy.

- Merry Christmas.

- Hey, what's this?

- My final bill's in there.

- Is it?

- Oh, also my holiday card.

The wife had me

and the kids dress up

like members of One Direction.

Pretty fun.

Mmm. Dynamite.

(INDISTINCT ANNOUNCEMEN ON PA)

Yes, Mum, it is all done.

I am divorced.

Well, you should tell Dad

that she is not coming over

for Christmas.

Why?

Because we're divorced, Mum!

Well... Oh, Mum,

don't worry about that.

I'm still gonna be fun.

I'm still gonna be

fun Uncle Josh, you know?

(STAMMERS)

Well, without doing that.

No, you can leave

the Santa suit in the attic.

Why? Because I'm an adult

and dressing up as Santa Claus

would be embarrassing.

Hi. Unless, you know,

you're doing it for charity.

Then it's... Then it's, um...

Sorry.

Tell Dad that I love... Oh!

That's lucky.

Just put me down

for five bucks, okay?

Hanging up, Mum.

(INDISTINCT CHATTER)

Hey, Carla, good morning.

You see something over there?

What do you got?

I think that Starbucks

- attracts a bad element, Josh.

- Oh, yeah.

Listen.

Give me the green light...

- Mmm-hmm.

- ...and I'll shut it down.

Oh, I love that initiative.

It's awesome.

Could you sign me in

real quick, please?

I wish I could,

but they got us sending you

through these machines now.

Gonna replace my ass,

matter of time.

That's never gonna happen.

These machines

don't have your smile, Carla.

- Make that money!

- (MACHINE BEEPS)

(ELEVATOR DINGS)

Josh, we have a situation.

Mary!

How do you always just appear?

You're like a human pop-up ad.

Did you read my latest memo

on appropriate work dress?

Uh, almost done.

Don't ruin the end.

Well, some people didn't.

And those people are Meghan.

(SIGHING)

Nobody listens to H.R.

Hey, Meghan?

I thought

that I have been clear about

the number of buttons that

can be unbuttoned on a shirt.

- You were serious about that?

- It's winter. Can we

put Dancer and Prancer

back in their stable?

Are you body-shaming her

right now?

Some people here

might find your outfit

offensive.

Well, some people might

find your outfit offensive.

And really confusing.

Oh, I thought it was clear.

This is a multi-denominational

holiday sweater.

It has Christmas,

Hanukkah, Kwanzaa,

the Buddhist day

of enlightenment,

and Boxing Day on it.

Everyone's included!

JEREMY:
Is everyone included?

What about, um, what about

something for the Satanists?

Jeremy, come on. I... I admire

the stand that you're taking,

but let's schedule

the protest rally

for after the workday,

shall we?
