Good Place 1.8

Eleanor gets tested by Michael

 

Michael interviews Eleanor, Chidi, Tahani, and Jason about Eleanor and Janet’s death. After finally getting Eleanor’s file from Janet (who is still re-learning things and had been only producing different types of cacti beforehand), he learns that Eleanor ruined a friend’s dress, leading to a lawsuit that bankrupted innocent dry cleaners, public humiliation of the friend, and Eleanor’s personal profit via t-shirts insulting her friend.


Eleanor finally confesses, and Michael plans to take her to ‘The Bad Place’. After not talking to Jainya, he changes his mind. Now there are two versions of Eleanor in the ‘Good Place’.


Michael: People who go to the Bad Place, Eleanor! That’s the point! And unless I can figure out a compelling reason to keep you here, you will spend eternity with murderers and arsonists and people who take off their shoes and socks on commercial airlines!

Trevor: This is the 3:18 to the Bad Place, making thousands of stops for literally no reason. Now, you’ll notice it’s very hot in here, and it will get one degree hotter every time you think about how hot it is. Oops! You just thought about it.

Chidi: You just casually cited Immanuel Kant. Yeah, I know we’re in a miserable bind here, but this might be the proudest day of my life.
Eleanor: No offense, but that’s a real bummer of a life.
