"...And that's why you insist on us riding on the elevator up and down to the office together every day like this?" Asked Diane.
"Yes, maybe it will happen again, and we will swap back to our own bodies."
"It hasn't swapped us back yet. And, oh, yeah, my body is scheduled to start it's period tomorrow."
"I hate being a woman so much...so, so much."

Before she could get through her anger to find words to say, Daniel spoke calmly, "Guess the shoe's on the other foot now. Well, actually the shoe is on the same foot; it's just that I am the one in control of those feet...and the shoes...your whole body, actually. You always thought you were so cool; you thought you could look down on people like me. You never could've expected what I could do. You know, the whole swapping bodies thing. Now I AM you, and you are unfortunately me. And you're just going to have to get used to it, because I am never swapping back."

Emily looked at Ben and then over at Joe. She didn't have much to say, and they could both tell that she didn't believe them.
Ben, the real Ben, the one in Joe's body, spoke next. He explained about a strange tiki idol that he got on a sales trip to Hawaii had caused it, telling Emily that it turned out to actually be magic.
"Actually magic?" Emily asked, spying the tiki on a table nearby. "This thing?" She asked as she picked it up off a nearby table.
"No!" Joe screamed from Ben's body as he tried to grab it from her.
But it was too late. Before Emily could realize what was going on, she got caught up in the swapping too. She now found herself in Ben's body while Joe found himself in her body. Ben was still in Joe's body. They each spent the next few minutes trying to exchange it between them, hoping to swap again to no avail.
Ben and Joe were about to start yelling again, but Emily urged them to quiet down. She didn't want an argument in the office, and she certainly didn't want her body to be seen as one of the ones arguing. She did manage to calm the situation, but she was at a loss for how to actually fix it!

"Why did you work so late tonight without calling?" She asked him.
"I wasn't working late; I was just having some drinks with the guys." He shrugged.
Realizing her husband wasn't going to be bringing any extra money home this week, Angela got angry. She slapped him hard on the arm. "You should call," She demanded, "And that young woman's body isn't yours. How could you treat it like that by drinking that poison!"
"This body IS mine now. That's what the Great Shift did. I know it didn't affect you. I understand that; I get that. But I'm not going to change who I am just because I have a new body either! You never used to treat me like this back when I was a man. I could go out with my co-workers, have a few drinks, and stay out late without a second look from you. Now you're treating me more like a daughter than your husband. I know we never had kids, but I'm not some sort of replacement for something we never had!"
