[ open on exterior, office building, night ]

[ dissolve to interior, office ]

Emma: Hey, Karen… I’m sorry you didn’t land that account. You okay?

Karen: Oh, that’s fine — I’m totally fine!

Emma: Oh. We all know how bad you wanted it. Why don’t you take your mind off of it, and join us for Happy hour?

Kristen: Yeah! TGIFriday’s has 100 wings for only 20 cents until 7 pm!

[ the others encourage Karen to join them ]

Karen: No, I’m okay! I’ll be right behind you. I just… have to… do a couple things.

Emma: Okay. And don’t worry — you’re gonna get it NEXT time.

Karen: Thanks! Bye! [ the others exit the office ] And… play.

[ Karen plays Adele’s “Someone Like You”, and begins to weep vividly and mouth the words ]

[ she quickly turns the CD off and scatters things around her desk as Emma re-enters the office ]

Karen: Oh, my God! Oh, my God! This desk is, like, crazy — oh, my God, I have too many pencils! So many of them!

Emma: Karen… Karen. Stop! I know you were listening to Adele’s “Someone Like You” and crying.

Karen: Okay.

Emma: And you know what? Last night, I watched the series finale of “Friday Night Lights” and it really messed me up, so…

Karen: Say no more.

[ Karen turns the song back on, as she and Emma both begin to cry and pig into pints of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream ]

[ suddenly, Kristen re-enters the office ]

Kristen: Is everyone coming?

[ Karen quickly turns the song off, as she and Emma pretend to be in the middle of an order ]

Karen: Yes! [ she grabs the telephone ] THank you for your business! We will get RIGHT on that! OKay, bye bye!

Emma: Byyyyyye!

Kristen: Ladies, I’m no dummy. You both needed a good cry, so you were listening to Adele’s “Someone Like You”.

Karen: [ with ice cream dripping down her face ] Do you do it, too?

Kristen: Everyone with a heart and an iTunes account does. So I know it… I get it… and I want in.

Emma: [ suspicious ] Why? What’s going on with you?

Kristen: All week, my, uh… my parakeets have been fighting. I feel I’m caught in the middle of it. So… so, hit me.

Karen & Emma: Okay.

[ Karen turns the song back on, as all three women begin to cry in their own unique manner — including Emma taking a digital photo of herself, and Kristen reaching out for her parakeets ]

[ suddenly, the male co-workers re-enter the office ]

Andy: Laaaadies!

Kenan: Where are you at?!

[ Karen quickly turns the song off, as the ladies try to cover their behavior ]

Karen: We’re not doing ANYTHING, okay?!

Emma: We were doing NOTHING! We were doing NOTHING!

Karen: Yep!

Kristen: I was thinking about my birds and crying to Adele’s “Someone Like You”.

Andy: What?

Kenan: what?!

Karen: What are you guys doing back here?

Bill: That Happy Hour wings special ended at 6:30. [ he tries to maintain his composure ] Oh, God…

The Men: Press Play…

[ Karen turns the song on again, as the male co-workers begin to weep vividly, including Bill with mascara running down his cheeks ]

[ then, the Janitor enters the room mopping, and he too begins to weep with his lower lip quivering ]

[ outside, a Window Washer is busy washing the window, then drops his squeegee and places his hand on the glass and begins to cry along with everyone else ]

[ from within the halls of Studio 8H, the members of Coldplay watch the sketch on a monitor and cry along with the characters ]

[ back within the sketch, all of the co-workers and other participants lock arms in a line and sing along ]

[ at last, Karen turns the song off one last time ]

Karen: Guys… let’s go get some FULL-PRICED wings!

Everyone: YEAH!!!

[ they all rush out of the office ]

[ fade ]
