Eleanor, Chidi, Tahani, Jason, Michael and Janet are on their way to Bad Place headquarters, there, according to Michael, which has the only portal to the judge, to who they want to plead their case to spend eternity in the Good Place. With the exception of Janet who gets a free pass, Michael, once at the Bad Place, needs to obtain four more pendants for the humans as the only means to get through the portal, he already having one for himself as one of the senior managers at the Bad Place. Beyond Michael having to find somewhere to keep the humans safe at headquarters while he goes on his mission, he, via Janet, provides them all with disguises just in case anyone from the old neighborhood runs into them and recognizes them. This plan works for Eleanor, Tahani and Jason who have lied, cheated and/or schemed their entire lives, but it is difficult for Chidi who believes it is morally wrong to tell a lie, and for Janet who is programmed to assist and be good. Things get more complicated... Written by Huggo

Tahani Al-Jamil: Let's practice. I'm going to make a simple request, and you're going to give me that patented Bad Janet attitude. Can I have a glass of water?
Janet: [hands Tahani a glass of water] Here you go.
Tahani Al-Jamil: No. Let's try again. Be mean. Bad Janet, can I have a glass of water?
Janet: No. I would never give you that, you... dumb person...
Tahani Al-Jamil: Janet, what's that behind your back?
Janet: Nothing.
Tahani Al-Jamil: Give it to me.
Janet: [sheepishly] It's a glass of water. And a back-up glass. Ooh, boy.
