Patty knocks on Ellen's office door and invites her to eat. Oh look they are in the same conference room as last time. That's a nice change of pace for this show. Unfortunately the one time they don't switch conference rooms is when they insist on sitting in the room with the ghastly wallpaper. The red brick, black spray paint, and white Grecian columns are truly hideous. Honestly, how can they eat in the same room as that wallpaper? The girls daintily pick away at their Chinese food and, oh look, beer. At work! I obviously worked in the wrong offices. Ellen says that David used to do most of the cooking and Patty counters with the fact that Phil is out of town. Ellen responds with a question about Phil being gone all the time and it being hard, and Patty simply stares at her impertinence and turns back to her kung pao shrimp. If Patty isn't going to talk to Ellen, why did she ask to eat with her? Oh who cares, shut up and drink! Ellen asks if UNR's defamation suit is serious and Patty assures her that Kendrick is always serious. Is he seriously fun at parties? I think last week's urinal episode would say no. Ellen wonders what Kendrick is up to, but Patty has no idea. Cut to Kendrick in the back of a car. He rolls down the window and hands Darrell Hammond a slip of paper with three numbers on it. He tells Darrell to use the keys. It's scenes like that one that make me wish I had the entire season on DVD so I could watch them all and find out what happens next.
Katie is pissed that Ellen told Patty about the cop who was following her. How many times does she have to tell her that cops can't be trusted, especially when it is a cop you are complaining about? Ellen knows that Katie doesn't like and/or trust Patty, but she has resources they can use to track the guy down. Ellen then sighs or something and Katie asks her what's wrong. Ellen tells her about going back to the apartment and receiving David's package. That sounds dirty, but you know what I mean. Ellen is carrying the box around, but can't get herself to open it.
Claire goes to find Kendrick. She knows what Patty might be up to. She thinks Patty made her accusations to drive the stock price down, tick off the shareholders, and then file a shareholder suit against Kendrick. Claire thinks they should settle and make her retract her statements before she can find a plaintiff. Kendrick isn't having it. Patty picked the fight and now she can play ball. Claire urges him to settle for a reasonable sum, let everything cool off and then go about his business. She looks him squarely in the eyes as she asks him if he really want Patty in his dirty laundry. Kendrick promises an answer by dessert and, yes, that was a dinner invitation. Claire is unimpressed, but agrees to go.
