Left your car at the garage. Not sure which one, but it's in Portland somewhere. It's the one in like, Portland, I think.

There was some little card that the machine gave me but I was like, screw it, I never keep receipts, they're so totally corporate and I just can't get into that so I like chucked it.

"Please bring me the coffee cup that's on the table in the room across the hallway from the office where the man with the nondescript briefcase works."
You'd be right to ask again: huh?

Fridges, that's where it's always been at.
