Miller), and his best friend, Nelson “Big Head” Bighetti (Josh Brener), Richard’s company is in seriously dire financial straits. He uses a cell phone to showcase Piper Chat, a video chatting app serendipitously created by his co-worker Dinesh (Kumail Nanjiani).Dinesh is one of the faces that shows up on Richard’s cell phone during this demo and/or sales pitch and/or pseudo-kidnapping.

The ever-respectable Jared contradicts Erlich’s advice. ” Jim exits the car, but not before uttering the corniest California-based-TV-show slogan since “Welcome to the O. “We were up two days trying to decrease server load,” complains Dinesh. “It’s like I would rather bite off my fingers than type code for that video chat,” Richard will later tell Monica (Amanda Crew).Did we mention there's a reality show about a baby hippo named Fiona at the Cincinnati Zoo?
