Adam has a great sandwich order analogy, Natalia upgraded her tastes to the Ford GT, nicely done!
They walked another 80 yards and she spotted the McLaren P1, which goes for over a million dollars.
Adam is explaining the nature of her taste upgrading as she saw the most expensive car, much like how she found her light fixture.

Adam brings up the key fob, they clarify it wasn’t a “fresh off the boat” insult, Adam is playing the car dealer for Tesla, he brings up Elon Musk and Bung tells him how he doesn’t’ like cologne.
This is unofficial bung btw, it was never declared to be bung, and it could be just some vague Asian guy.
Jo is now making weird noises, Adam is telling him about the auto pilot, and Bung mixes it up and jokes about an auto pirate who drives his car for him.
Jo is making the noise again, it’s him eating “cup o noodles” and slurping, Adam is asking him about Tesla, he brings up the inventor and Bung mixes it up with the band.

Adam brings up the guy he saw driving down the street on Thanksgiving with the Christmas wreath attached to his front grill.
Adam’s first move was to think the guy was a douche and then he immediately tried to cool his douche jets and he’s explaining why, after a funny callback about only putting a wreath on his car if it was like his tugboat tire idea.
Alison, Jo and Adam are now discussing the cynicism that caused him to criticize this guy, Alison brings up her dangly Christmas ball earrings, her face was that guy’s car.
Adam references the movie ‘Gremlins’ and the infamous scene where Phobe Cates describes the death of her father, this seems to come up every December since 2008.

Alison has a point about measuring, she cites Adam’s “eyeball it” rule for some things, he explains why a level is necessary for a doorway but not necessarily for a vent on a stove, he says trust your eyeballs if it’s not structural.
Adam has a great Batman ’66 reference after Jo tells them about his crooked TV installation thanks to the geek squad.

Adam is now joking about bringing a director in from the 1930’s to re-direct that scene, he’s doing his old timey voice, and he is exposing his limited references as per usual when he does this, no “22 skidoo” though.

Adam has a killer turtleneck sweater joke as she tells them about the IDA, Adam threatens to get drunk and crash the IDA event to meet Robert.
Adam asks if the plan now for Robert is to do things he’s passionate about, but she’s quite a bit younger and needs to focus on ratings on and business, she explains the “we are for profit” reminders she gives to Robert.
She says good content will find a home, Adam asks if she can bring Robert Redford in to close deals etc.
She explains how all of this stems from the Sundance resort, the channel, the festival and everything else.
She brings up the idea of the brand of the company, Adam explains why Robert can’t get that involved in the submission selection committee for Sundance.
She’s now telling them about two movies Redford produced that didn’t get accepted in his own festival, Adam is now bringing up how Robert wanted to see the movie when it was complete.
Adam says he didn’t think Robert’s interest would in any way lead to them being accepted nor would he reply as he didn’t want to get their hopes up.
Laura is explaining how films can be rejected by a festival without them being bad movies, she bring up the rough cut excuse and Adam is still not bringing up the incident with ‘The Hammer” where it wasn’t accepted because the person in charge “didn’t like Adam’s politics.”

Adam does a live read for Protect Your Bubble
1st Story Is on Obama’s comments about security camera implementation for law enforcement and Adam says the cameras are about the only thing that is going to work and says that 9 times out of 10 the cops are hoping the events of their job are filmed too.
Adam brings up the fight or flight adrenaline and what that does to someone.
Alison is now hinting around the fact that she thinks the details of the Mike Brown case are unclear, Adam is taking the bait and getting into the topic.
Adam is now giving his take on how murdering black people is a career ending move for someone in law enforcement, he asks why he would go around executing minorities even if he hated them all.
Alison is now reading the quotes from Darren Wilson, Adam is saying we’re not approaching this case the right way by assuming that Darren wanted to murder that kid.
Adam is now telling Alison about the fucked up cop mindset she just brought up, she shares an anecdote about a dinner with a cop and how he told her about how scared he was while on duty, Alison was disappointed by his honesty and non-superhuman abilities to block out fear, even UFC fighters don’t do that.
Adam is bringing up danger profiling and risk assessment, Adam cites how cops unload their clips and miss shots, he says he looks at everything from a psychological standpoint and explains how when the bullets are firing the cops aren’t cops anymore.
Laura is giving her take on the protests, Adam is sharing his “cops are assholes” idea and how he wants to send that message to black people, why fire 12 shots? Why throw a hundred punches to Kelly Thomas’s head, because they threw one.
Adam is explaining why cops are so willing to harm, assault and kill while on duty, he explains that cops don’t have flyswatters and any disrespect can only be met with harm.
Adam says it shouldn’t be this way, its bullshit, you have to respect cops or they might kill you, regardless of how wrong and out of line the officer is, shooting attitude back at a cop only increases the odds of being taken out of a car.
Adam is now bringing up the idea of women being the ultimate minority when it comes to being pulled over by cops, how few women are there on the force to represent the women in society.
Adam is further describing the crazy out of line behavior of cops and how wrong it is, he says he likes these discussions, not sure how anyone can call him a racist old out of it white guy this time.
Adam is explaining how he saw the footage of Michael Brown stealing his cigarillos, most likely to take back to his home or his buddies to then roll up blunts and listen to aggressive rap music (that’s what all my buddies did), Adam is describing the scene from the security footage.
Adam is using him not running away to make a point about the second lap Mike made back to menace the clerk, he was pulling tough guy shit, trying to be “the man”.
Adam says this a discussion on top of a discussion they need to have, Adam says he’s lucky the store owner doesn’t have the gone as stereotypes would suggest.
Adam says it’s all tragic and a mess but there was obviously something going on his mind at the time too, Alison is getting quiet as she does when heavy stuff gets brought up.
Adam is being very fair and Alison is now quoting Mark Geragos calling this a parody of the criminal justice system, Adam says he defers to Mark on this as the expert but offers up a T.V. narrative explanation for his adamant position.
Adam once again brings up the cameras and says we need them, Adam says it’s not a positive narrative to spin that white cops are trying to murder black kids, Alison brings up the Rams team raising their hands.
Alison sets Adam up for a live read.
Adam is doing a Draft Kings Live Read after not getting hint for a couple beats.
They’re now playing the clip of the players holding their hands up, Adam reaffirms his theory on this country not being as racist as everyone is seemingly obsessed with proving.
Adam is now using all of his shitty neighbors and how he would think they were racists, he cites the cunt from his recent flight who had a negative reaction too, what else could he think if he was black and she did that to him.
Adam says he had a cop show up at his shop today, the other warehouse, he was getting it all organized and lining up the stuff that sits next to the police impound lot.
Adam is telling them about deicing on what items to line between the cops impound yard and his warehouse.
Adam explains that Officer Hernandez (Robles?) paid him a visit, telling him that the impound yard was robbed the night before, 25min after Adam gave his “Who would rob a police impound yard?” speech.
Adam shares the guy’s partner came by 25min later to see the cars, Adam brings up the Hispanic cops who murdered Kelly Thomas.
Laura says “We don’t get pulled over as much” and Adam clarifies its poor people, not your skin color, it’s your shitty car, like my 95 Camry missing a window, you get pulled over for being poor.
Black people aren’t synonymous with poverty and Adam clarifies his point.
Adam plugs Take a Knee and gets Laura’s name right again by saying it super-fast.
