Frobisher (Frobisher?!) calls his ex-wife to gush about his new building. He is animated about the many green aspects of the building. He also tells her that he is excited for meeting up with her and the kids and is just so darn excited about the future. Um...was there a point to this scene? I mean other than the obvious PSA about "going green."
Patty is reading the paper in the morning when Michael (a.k.a. Dickhead) comes downstairs. She tells him that she read his college essay and found a stack of unopened college applications. Dickhead calmly nods that he is not going to college. When Patty barks, "Why not?" he takes a bite of his apple and tells her that he did it for her. He's not going to college because she needs a man in her life and there is no one left. Patty stares icily at him as he walks out of the room. The strength in that woman to not just up and strangle that kid! And, while I'm sure the actor playing young Dickhead is a perfectly charming and well-mannered young man, this character he is portraying makes me want to pop his head like a pimple.
Kendrick stares out the window. He has a very nice view of the Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridges. Which I guess puts his office in the Financial District. Dave Pell sits in his chair and tells Kendrick to chillax because as soon as Patty bribes the judge the FBI will be there to take her down. Kendrick perks up at that news and chuckles as Dave Pell explains that there is an informant inside Patty's firm working with the FBI. Oh, Ellen, you've become a joke for Pell and Kendrick. Is that really what you wanted? Kendrick smiles that it's always a pleasure doing business with him. Just then Finn Garrity barges into the room and starts bad-mouthing everyone and pissing off Kendrick and Pell and blathering about Patty's visit. He claims he agreed to the codes and the trades, but he didn't know about the rest of the shenanigans. If he is risking serious jail time he wants more for his work: he wants an ownership stake in UNR or he makes a deal with Patty. He stares at them and then marches out the door. Pell and Kendrick debate how best to kill him. Not out loud, but it's easy to read their thoughts.
