Carrie and CIM are now lying around in bed, and CIM tells her she has cracks in her ceiling, and that her place could use some work. She doesn't really care about home improvements, as well she shouldn't, since that is her landlord's responsibility. CIM offers to strip the floors for her, and tells her it is quick and easy and she won't even notice he's there. What kind of floor stripping does he do that is quick and unnoticeable? With all the loud machinery and dust, CIM needs to go to all her neighbors and asking for permission to work on Carrie's floors.
