- Good morning, beautiful.

-What time is it?

Eh, 9:


-Thanks for sleeping over.


-Feels weird sleeping alone.

Like I'm... Sleeping alone.

You want to move in?

-Ugh, no!

You have got a bad case

of the bed sprawl.

Plus, things are getting

pretty serious with Jason.

-Jason with the hair?

-No, Jared with the hair.

This is Jason with the glasses.

- Didn't you just go out

with him, like, on a first date?


And it was a great first date.

And we've been texting...

All the time!


- Just the same three jobs

I'm not qualified for.

This sucks.

-You hated that job.

- Yeah,

but at least I could pay rent.

-Just get a temp job.


- Who would ever want to

work a temp job?

-Wakey, Wakey, eggs and bakey.

-Actually, no bakey.

But there's a goat cheese

and squash frittata

in the fridge.

You can heat it

in the toaster oven at 350

or totally ruin it in the micro.

Amaretto mimosa?

- Oh, no, thanks.

I gotta four-day gig

at mbst&t starting today.

- No way!

They just moved me to mbst&t.

I was totally planning

on having a lame day,

and they've gone

and messed that up.

Did you already

put in your money?

- I put it in the ledger,

but I didn't red-light it.

- What have we got,

like, 75 days left?

- 84 if we want to make it there

by Thanksgiving.

- It's a small price to pay

for another

epic Jefferson and Carter

ski adventure!

Whoosh! Whoosh!

We feeling the pink today?

-Yeah, let's give it a try.

- Yeah.

Yeah, I think that works.

- Oh, yeah.

Shake that moneymaker.

All right, guys,

I need you to go through

these boxes here,

make sure we shred anything

older than seven years.

Dates are on the top

of these folders.

Any questions?

-That suit, Ann Taylor?

-Um... It is.

-You really wear it.

-Thank you, Jefferson.

-Mrs. HWANG?

- Yes.

- Stephanie.

Cal staff sent me over.

- Okay,

why don't you come with me.

-Ann Taylor?

-I'm telling you, man,

these things are a gold mine.

-Ann Taylor?


-You really wear it.

-We have 2,500 of these

that need to be stuffed

and metered by lunch.

As soon as the other temps

are finished shredding,

they can jump in

and help you out.


- I know, not much time.

- I'll do my best.

- I'd prefer

you just get it done.

-Okay, I'll do that.

-Are you talking back to me?


- There's a reason

you're a temp worker,

you know that, right?

-Because I got laid off?

- I'm gonna let you in on

a little secret.

They don't lay off

the good workers.

- All right,

I'm gonna go stuff these.

- Please do that.

- I'm going.

- Go.

- Okay.

- Hurry!

- I am.

-Let's go.


- Don't take it personally.

HWANG hates girls.

All right, are we doing this?

- And go!

- No, no, no.

- Corner back, corner back!

Oh! Damn it.


-I demand a re-do.

- Is this what you guys

normally do around here?


Sometimes we raid

the office supply closet

and see if we can make a fort

out of anything.

That gets real challenging.

-You enjoy being a temp?

- Temping is just a means

to an end, really.

We're actually skiers.

-Like professional skiers?

- Yeah, kind of.

- Except we don't get paid.

We're going to mount hood

this year.

It's a Straga volcano

or strata volcano.

- Strata volcano.

- Yeah.

-Strata volcano.

- So skiing and temping.

Any other life plans?

- I take it you're one

of those live to work people.

- I appreciate the value

of a life's work, yes.

-What's yours, then?

- Oh, well, I...

Went to school for accounting.

-That sounds thrilling.

- Well, what's your life's work,
