Jim's on his cell phone at the Sheriff's Station reception desk. A phone rings in Carson City, and a bird-like woman sitting at a desk in front of a file cabinet picks it up and asks, "Hello?" Jim's confusion mounts as he asks, "Grace?" We learn that this sweet bird's name is "Myrna," and Jim checks the caller ID on his SPRINT PHONE to make sure he's dialed the correct number (it's 866-540-5838, but I don't think I'm playing anymore because I already have WAY too much money as it is, so...), and asks as a precaution whether he has, in fact, reached the IRS. Myrna The Temp (because when you run out of ways to bag on the assistant, move right on to making fun of the temp) clarifies for Jim that Grace is out of the office, and Jim notes, "She hasn't missed a day of work in five years." Show don't tell, Ben. Show don't tell. Myrna starts on a filibuster that personnel didn't say why she was there or who she was replacing, but Jim interrupts into his SPRINT PHONE and tells her he needs to speak with Ira. Myrna seems confused. This show is so strapped for cash that I'm shocked at the discipline it must have taken for Jim not to get real close to his phone receiver and ask Myrna in his most product-placing voice if she could "hear me now."
