Welcome to the Laboratory of Elegant Interaction.
00:23
Science has always strived to understand
00:25
the intricate workings of the mysterious mind.
00:29
In an effort to shed light on this age old mystery,
00:32
we have rounded up some fascinating subjects
00:35
here at the laboratory.
00:38
(enterprising electronic music)
00:41
Valentine, our chronic introvert.
00:43
An elegant and sensitive creature.
00:46
Her drive to remain mysterious is so strong
00:49
that she masks her face.
00:51
However, she is acutely aware of how she is perceived.
00:56

The key to this quandary is to simplify life.
01:25
(sensual jazz music)
01:27
None of us have perfect symmetry in this world.
01:31
But Sadie has unfortunately
01:33
blown this out of all proportion.
01:35
She is driven by an irresistible inner force
01:38
to reject balance
01:40
in favor for a more esoteric slate.
01:44
Sadie is a compulsive asymmetric.
01:49
(loud trumpet blares)
01:52
Irena, Globophobic.
01:55
Put in layman's terms. She has a fear of balloons.
01:59
Or rather, that the balloon might pop.
02:03
A classic symptom of party girls
02:05
who never want the party to end.
02:07
To her and many others,
02:09
perhaps this seems to be a logical anxiety.

02:17
Florence, an extreme hoarder.
02:20
She finds it impossible to relinquish even one garment.
02:23
Although there are clearly a greater number here
02:26
than she could ever hope to wear.
02:28
She simply can't bear to let them out of her grasp.
02:33
(pinging noise)
02:35
(moody guitar)
02:38
These ladies are uncontrollably verbose.
02:42
They simply cannot stop talking.
02:45
It was great, oh the champagne, if you know what I mean.
02:47
And my god, that he is the man of my dreams!
02:48
Where is my lasso?
02:50
Yeah!
02:51
There is a nightmare!
02:52
And I'm scrabbling up!
02:53
Especially my hair and my jewelry,
02:54
I'm trying to save myself.
02:56
Come back, come back.
02:57
My hat, it's my head.
02:58
It was awful!
02:59
Jen and Lydia had lived so intensely
03:02
that the find it impossible
03:04
to keep all of their experiences inside.
03:07
And I couldn't believe it, there was a flamingo
03:10
carrying my clutch bag! What?
03:13

(mysterious electronic music)
03:18
We have seen a whole host of fascinating characters
03:21
at the Laboratory of Elegant Interaction.
03:24
Once we overcome initial suspicions,
03:26
we learned these are the ladies who are indeed
03:28
stranger than paradise.
