Jake: North Dakota.
Chloe: Oh no no no! STOP! That's not a one word state. He did NOT talk to me. WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU?
Andy: And there's our fight.
Chloe: Can we un-lock in his dumb answer?
Jake: It wasn't locked in yet. We were just talking about it.
Andy: I do not sense agreement amongst the team of this answer, so I will allow you to give me a different one that you both agree on.
Chloe: OK, I'm just gonna do this - Maryland.
Dustin: Sorry, that was all just a bunch of awesome. Vermont.
