  • Robby: Hey, Robert Frost, looks like we’re going to take the road Jess traveled.
  • Winston: Maybe things didn't go perfectly, but damn it, don't be embarrassed to be crazy in front of me. Okay? I am the king of crazy. (chuckles) I have inside jokes with my cat. I am a member of the Puzzling Guild of North America. I shave my face cold, and I brush my teeth hot. It's true. On one very late and very desperate night, I used Furguson's cat box as my own box. And, yes, it is true what many of you have heard. I once fell asleep in a bathtub!
  • Aly (laughing): I love that story.
  • Police: (knocking) Open up. Police!
  • Schmidt: Who-who called the police? I don't know. I guess we better do whatever they say.
  • Nick: Ugh. Why are you guys acting like you're in a porno?
