Oren: Everything but the bagel seasoning, also you can mail Jeni’s Ice Cream to people kind of like a thank you card but better

Matt: The Box, basically you fill a box with all the different movies (written down) that would have been released theatrically in 2020. Then when you want to watch a movie, pick one out of the box to kind of replicate going to the actual movie theater
