Adam is telling them about a corporate event he had to tape today, he’s bringing up the time he spent over at a car dealership.

Adam says his wife brought up the sad but true “yeah well I got to take Natalia to Disneyland” reply from his wife, which sadly most humans would see as equal work to what he was doing.

They’re heading to break.


They’re back from break with “Jill” aka J.L Cauvin, Adam is singing his praises for the impression, saying he doesn’t feel like they capture his essence.

J.L. has a solid one liner but then laughs at it more than anyone else, Adam is using motorcycles to make another point and now Alison is giving the details of the horrific crash and the victims.

Adam is joking about “the one important person” and how shitty that is of people to be only curious about the most famous person.
