At his brother's office, Eli apologetically breaks the news to Nathan that in order to save both their jobs and respective licenses to do their jobs, Nathan is going to have to lie under oath. He can't think of any other way to get Nathan out of this mess. Nathan says he knows his brother is really good at his job, so he has to ask, "If I was your client and you were my lawyer, what would you tell me to do?" "Lie," Eli says.
Patti, clearly on a personal call, is gossiping and giggling on the phone when Taylor sticks her head in and asks about the work she gave Patti. Without getting off the phone and barely even acknowledging Taylor's presence, Patti just says, "I never got to it, try back later." Finally annoyed and making a point about it, Taylor crosses her arms and walks into the office. Getting it, Patti hangs up and deals with Taylor. Basically, Taylor is politely bemused as to why Patti didn't do what she asked. "I've been busy," Patti shrugs. Taylor gets to the real point. She dealt with Patti's rudeness when she was with Eli but now that she's actually working in the same office, she really wants to know what the hell Patti's problem is with her. Patti stands up and asks, "Can I be honest with you?" "This is you holding back?" Taylor shrugs. Patti doesn't like who Eli became when he was with Taylor. Suddenly, Eli didn't have time for the firm's smaller clients. Taylor protests that Eli has been with the firm for eight years and they had dated for only two of them. Patti asks Taylor to explain the last two months, "The cases he's taken, what he's done right before and since he dumped you?" "Maybe because he's sick," Taylor offers. "Or," Patti counters, "Maybe now he's better." Taylor throws up her hands and sort of chokes that she'll do her own typing. She walks out. Okay, so we finally understand some of Patti's enmity for Taylor, but is that all of it? I mean, she so clearly loathes Taylor, I was hoping for something with more meat on it.
