Richard comes home to find Emily picking out fabric for the sitting room. Richard dismissively chooses one. Emily barks that she was looking for exactly his kind of enthusiasm. Richard says that Emily has excellent taste, and that whatever she chooses will be fine. Emily asks if he needs ice, comments that he seems tired, and reminds him that some men retire. Richard says that some men tattoo their mothers' names on their biceps. He says he needs a drink and a nice meal. Emily tells him that he got a phone call from Jason Stiles today. "Digger Stiles?" Richard asks. He says that he has nothing to say to him. Emily says that Jason might have something interesting to say to him. Richard reminds us that Jason works for the company that let Richard go, and that they phased him out unceremoniously. Richard says that Digger's probably been sent to do his father's dirty work: "It's not enough to fire me; they have to continue to harass me now that I'm gone." Richard pronounces it "hair-iss." Emily says she thought Richard always liked Digger. Richard says he liked Digger when Digger was Richard's personal assistant, but not as his father's heir apparent. Emily says that Richard doesn't have to return the call if he doesn't want to, but that Digger's coming for dinner the next night. Emily says she was only being polite in asking Digger to dinner, since he was insistent upon speaking with Richard, but that she can cancel if Richard feels strongly enough about it. Richard says that Digger can come over, but that he's not staying for a drink. Emily says she'll hide the liquor bottle so that Digger doesn't get any bright ideas. Richard says it's extremely comforting to have such an understanding wife at times like these. "I'm so glad," Emily says.
