Jackson and Dwayne Johnson, better known as The Rock) within the station, they see this as their chance to finally get out of their slump.
The mismatched pair could not be more different. Adam makes the effort, likes the office work and (to his partners dismay) is surprisingly adept with women (you get a nice running gag of every hot woman wanting his body) whereas Terry is really unhappy with staying …
