Steve's office. Steven, Lauren, and Anthony Heald. "You want to run that by me one more time?" says Steven. Oh, please, don't. Because, see, we've been watching the show, and we know the story so far. Great, here she goes: "I think that Susan Potter bribed Peter Nelson for his votes." The bribe being? "A sexual favor. I saw it, Steven. I walked in on it." Steven says, "Couldn't it have been at arm's length?" What does that mean? Anyway, Lauren can't figure it out either, because she just goes on, "From what I gather, Susan Potter and Peter Nelson aren't even friends. They never have been. And the campaign's been pretty ugly. Then, suddenly she's performing oral sex on him, and next thing he's throwing his support to her. The polls showed that Jerry Schlum had forty percent, Susan Potter had thirty-two, Peter Nelson had twenty. He was going to lose anyway. So, he took the free." Anthony Heald winces. Bad memories, I guess. "...and with his twenty percent, Susan will win." Talk about blowing by an opponent. Lauren says, "Talk about blowing by an opponent." DAMN! IT! Lauren says, "Sorry." Steven asks if she can prove any of this, which of course she can't, but it seems pretty self-evident to me. Steven says, "Scott, get 'em both. Sequester Susan, and tag-team Nelson." Anthony Heald is standing, shell-shocked, in the corner. Wait, no, he's off. His CPU is recharging. Steven attaches jumper cables to the bridge of his nose and his groin and gets him moving again.
Milton accosts The Proposition Fairy in the office. "Steven's busy again," she says. "I didn't come to see Steven, I came to see you, you little snot." About what? "Our date." What about it? "Let's do it. Tonight." That charity show is tonight. "Fine, we'll go to that together." Fine. "Fine." Fine. "Fine." Oh, that crazy thing called love. Not. Memo to David E. Kelley: it is not automatically cute when two people really like each other but pretend not to. Even when you have two very likeable actors. What's missing? I don't know. The fact that we know absolutely nothing at all about The Proposition Fairy certainly hurts.
