How To Make Lots of Great Friends

Sometimes as a plane takes off, or a line for a bus inches forward, I occupy myself by making a mental list of things I'm grateful for. The list is never-ending, but the item on the list that I'm always most grateful for are the people in my life, my friends and family.

In fact, some of the humor is so hidden so you have to watch each episode multiple times to catch all the jokes.
