At the beginning of the class, Abbi accidentally throws a kettlebell at a large $1400 mirror, severely damaging it. This means that Trey and Abbi have come up with $700 dollars each to buy a replacement mirror so that they can pretend that the breakage did not happen and avoid being fired. Oliver suggests to his mother that Ilana take the designer clothes to a homeless shelter that his mother was going to give to horses. Oliver then tells him that the real plan is to take them to a clothes shop to sell them. Ilana and Abbi sell the clothes for $903. Trey and Abbi replace the mirror that night.

311"Sliding Doors"Lucia AnielloAbbi Jacobson & Ilana GlazerSeptember 13, 2017 (2017-09-13)4010.879[32]
The origin story of Abbi and Ilana's friendship takes the audience back to 2011, where it is cut between two timelines as in the film Sliding Doors. Each reveals a different scenario where they first meet and later became friends, along with details about their overall lives at that time. In both scenarios, they meet at a NYC subway station. From there, one story involves them boarding a subway train and going through the day separately. This scenario shows Abbi meeting Bevers for the first time at her apartment – he is nice and is in good shape. It shows Ilana in a relationship with Jaimé while they are both students at New York University. The girls meet by chance on a bench towards the end of the episode. In the other scenario, they miss their train and they spend the day together. Ilana is fired from her job in both scenarios, but for different reasons.
