“What a rat,” Tomlin said.
“What a liar,” a bewigged Cohen said, appearing in place of the actresses’ costar Dolly Parton.
“What a creep,” Fonda said, lounging over the bar with sunglasses on.
The characters go on to lament their sad 9-to-5 work situation and lecherous boss until one of them discovers she has a cure for what ails them.

Fonda and Tomlin star in Netflix Original comedy series “Grace and Frankie,” which premiered on May 8 and tells the story of two women forced to reinvent their lives. The “Odd Couple”-like duo bond when their husbands Robert and Sol (Martin Sheen and Sam Waterston) drop the bomb that they’re both leaving their wives — for each other.
The actresses also tell Cohen that they’ve tried to work up a “9 to 5” sequel, but it hasn’t worked out.
“We tried,” Fonda said, “but, you know, Fox owns the rights, and they had other ideas.”
Fonda also told Cohen that working with Jennifer Lopez on the movie “Monster-in-Law” wasn’t as drama-plagued as reports about Lopez might suggest.
“You know, I think she was on her best behavior,” Fonda said. “She was not a diva.”
“They make up that stuff,” Tomlin said.
