Good Place 1.6

Episode 6 – What We Owe to Each Other

Eleanor is left with the dog

Eleanor distracts Michael from his investigation in order to avoid detection. He tells her that architects don’t normally live in neighborhoods; doing so was his own idea and will be discredited by his failure.

Meanwhile, Tahani tries to bond with Jianyu, forcing Chidi to go to great lengths to protect Jason’s secret.

Chidi and Tahani end up bonding, but Tahani ultimately accepts Jianyu as her soulmate after he gives her a gift that Chidi arranged.


Featuring one very fat dog. Was it CGI ? Bulked up for the part. We may never know.


Eleanor: Well, my first rule would be that no-one can veto my rules.
Chidi: Well that’s called tyranny, and it’s generally frowned upon.

Eleanor: I need to find a way to both help him and not help him at the same time.
Chidi: That’s literally not possible.
Eleanor: Oh really? I once posed as a hot prom date for my cousin, both helping him and, later, according to his therapist, not helping him.

Janet: Does not compute. Does not compute. I’m just kidding. I mean, it doesn’t compute, but I’m not gonna explode or anything.

Michael: There’s something so human about taking something great and ruining it a little so you can have more of it.
Eleanor: Huh! That is very human.
