Well, Glenn, we just wanted to make sure you were all right.
Recap of The Good Place Season 1 Episode 3 (S01E03) - 22
Eleanor and I just want to see if there's anything
Recap of The Good Place Season 1 Episode 3 (S01E03) - 23
Recap of The Good Place Season 1 Episode 3 (S01E03) - 24
Yes, I know.

It would look even better on my floor.

Recap of The Good Place Season 1 Episode 3 (S01E03) - 33

Recap of The Good Place Season 1 Episode 3 (S01E03) - 34
So I could see if her handwriting matches the note
Recap of The Good Place Season 1 Episode 3 (S01E03) - 35
You stole Tahani's diary.
Recap of The Good Place Season 1 Episode 3 (S01E03) - 36

Recap of The Good Place Season 1 Episode 3 (S01E03) - 43
I would love not to listen to you.
