The Good Place – How Your Life Is Scored (Episode Highlight)


Ah.
[chuckles] Hello, everyone. And welcome to your first day
in the afterlife. You were all,
simply put, good people. But how do we know
that you were good? How are we sure? During your time on Earth, every one of your actions had a positive
or a negative value, depending
on how much good or bad that action
put into the universe. Every sandwich you ate, every time
you bought a magazine, every single thing you did had an effect
that rippled out over time and ultimately created
some amount of good or bad. You know how some people
pull into the breakdown lane when there’s traffic? And they think to themselves, “Ah, who cares?
No one’s watching.” We were watching. Surprise. [laughter] Anyway, when your time
on Earth has ended, we calculate
the total value of your life using our perfectly accurate
measuring system. Only the people
with the very highest scores, the true cream of the crop, get to come here,
to the Good Place. What happens to everyone else,
you ask? Don’t worry about it. The point is, you are here
because you lived one of the very best lives that could be lived. And you won’t be alone. Your true soul mate
is here too. [crowd gasps and murmurs]
That’s right. Soul mates are real. One of the other people
in your neighborhood is your actual soul mate, and you will spend
eternity together. So welcome
to eternal happiness. Welcome to the Good Place. Sponsored by: otters holding hands
while they sleep. You know the way you feel
when you see a picture of two otters
holding hands? That’s how you’re gonna feel
every day. [applause]
