They go over the pros and cons as Phyllis perches on the desk in front of him. It’s established they have great sex, no one makes him laugh more than her, they bring out the best in one another, are good friends, and make a great team. The number one con is Summer. Phyllis grimaces that she’s a buzzkill. Nick points out they’ve broken each other’s hearts. Phyllis thinks they’ve made amends. She asks if he wants to speed up their journey or end it right here.
