Iceland.
Iceland.
Cold but not too cold.
Ice land.
Land of ice? Okay, that's enough words Out of you.
Words, what about words? Interesting, Hmm.
I have no idea What you're talking about.
Instead of patterns, The designs could have.
Icelandic words, like loyalty.
Loyalty? Why loyalty? Oh, that's this big thing In Iceland, which I totally get.
My dog, Hercules, he is so loyal He once followed me to school.
It's true.
We were in history, And Hercules just walked Right in.
Well, that was quite An amazing waste of my time.
Face! You can do whatever you want With your designs, lady luck, But mine will not have words On it.
It's a dress, uh-hum, Not a term paper.
Maybe it's not Such a good idea.
Should I get the bubbles? No.
I'll think of something.
Claire, to the storage room And bring me some fabric paint.
I'm on it.
Fine, I'll go too.
Oh, true, I've been working On a little design for you.
Yeah.
I think I just went from lucky To clucky.
Can I help you? Hey, look, there's Hercules.
If I know my dog, It's about to get crazy.
Hey, Hercules.
What are you doing here, boy? Thanks for coming And cheering me up.
You won't believe The kind of day I've had.
Totally rough.
You thirsty, boy? Want some water? We got tap and toilet.
Hey, Oscar, do you have anything I can put water in for my dog? Will this do? Yeah, that should work.
What's wrong with you? Oh, I'll tell you What's wrong.
You see that machine over there? The one three feet away? Yeah, I see it.
It looks pretty smug, Doesn't it? Look, all I wanted Was a box of tooty fruits.
I put four quarters in, I pressed j-7, And you know what happened? Nothing.
Nothing.
That's what happened.
Well, I've got a dollar In my shoe If you wanna borrow it.
No, it wouldn't be right.
If I put another dollar in, The machine wins.
How's it going with you? Honestly, I have no idea.
I mean, I thought I had A great design, Then Amanda told me.
It was terrible.
So now, I'm stuck.
Ah, like the tooty fruits.
Today, I really wanted To show them all That I was talented.
And not just lucky.
But now I'm drinking out of a dog bowl.
Hey.
What am I doing? Look, I roll my cart Through a lot of offices.
And you are as talented As anyone I've seen.
Really? Really.
You just need to believe In yourself, In the same way.
That I have to believe If I stare at that machine.
Long enough, it will come to me.
Thanks, Jimmy.

My dog chewed that dress.
I'm not familiar With that phrase.
My actual dog Tore those shreds.
It wasn't my idea.
So I didn't really win The challenge against Amanda.
I wasn't smart.
I was just lucky.
True, let me tell you A little story about luck.
Twenty years ago, I was walking down the street.
I came across a line of people.
So I got on the end of it.
Did you know What it was for? Nope.
I do that sometimes.
Anyway, next thing I know, I'm being interviewed.
For a job in fashion, Which I got.
So, you see, you never know Where life will take you, And you can never underestimate The magic of luck.
Thank you, sir.
And true, the day I hired you To work here, Maybe I was the one.
That got lucky.
Enjoy your ice cream.
Yes.
Uh-huh That's great.
All right.
Bye.
That was the hospital.
Claire was able To get out of bed.
And then she punched a nurse And saw an ambulance.
Well, at least somebody's Having a good day.
What's with you, Pajama pants? Fell in love today And then I lost her.
She's gone.
Come on, Lulu, Time to go home.
So, how are those tooty fruits? I'm gonna be honest.
These are the most Disgusting things I've ever had.
It's got like A lemony filth taste.
Will you try it? Oh, yeah.
That's pretty nasty.
Want me to get another? So, Ryan, where's your model? She's on her way to Iceland.
She's gonna be the new face Of d'brsken's shredded jeans.
You know, I'll never forget Gracie.
Tina.
Tina.
She's the one that got away.
Ryan, There'll be lots more girls Way out of your league.
Well, there'll never be Another tell me again.
Tina.
Tina.
So, is there anything We can do to cheer you up? I doubt it.
Uh, uh, uh.
Full chicken, please.
Who wants ice cream? Yes.
That's a fun idea.
