She tells Artie to give her back the shirt, and also tells him the reason behind it. Artie tells her that he can’t return the shirt, as he found it in the trash can and as he has found it, he shall keep it.
Artie wants Joy to give him a makeover so he can find a girl. Joy says she doesn’t have the time, as she is getting married in two days.
