Season 1, Episode 13 -  Aired January 19, 2017

Eleanor, Chidi, Tahani and Jason must decide among themselves which two people will go to the Bad Place to satisfy Shawn's demand.

Quote from Shawn

Michael: What do you say? Take two, huh?
Shawn: I don't know. I mean, what is this? All this work for four people...
Michael: Look, for a first attempt it was actually very promising. Let me... Let me just tinker a little, try again.
Shawn: Okay. But you're way out on a limb here, Mike. If this thing goes sideways again, you are done.


Quote from Eleanor

Eleanor: Guys, he is going to erase our memories at any second and all of this will have been for nothing. [grunts] Ugh! You're useless!
[Eleanor opens the book "What We Owe to Each Other" and grabs a pen]
Eleanor: What do I write? What do I write? Ooh! Come on, brain. [rips out page] Janet? You can't eat anything, right?
Janet: Correct.
Eleanor: Open up. [places the paper in Janet's mouth]

Quote from Michael

Michael: You know the way you feel when you see a chimpanzee and a baby tiger who've become friends? [laughter] That's how you're going to feel every day.

Quote from Eleanor

Chris Baker: Eleanor? I'm Chris Baker. I'm your soul mate.
Eleanor: Cool. Bring it in, man. So where are you from, Chris?
Chris Baker: I'm from Teaneck, New Jersey, and I was a mailman.
Eleanor: Really? [chuckles] Chris, you'll stand by me no matter what, right?
Chris Baker: Hold that thought. Is it okay if I go work out? I love working out. I gotta stay jacked, it's... who I am.
Eleanor: Yeah, you gotta.
Chris Baker: Once I'm back, we'll get to know each other.
Eleanor: Great. See ya soon.
