At the offices of the Stamford paper, Rory waits in the lobby. Wultz shows up and is surprised to see her there, especially when she says she's come to see him about a job. He explains to her again that he does not have any jobs available, but she's not having it. She gives him the high-pressure sale, including her resume and a HUGE portfolio. He remains confused: he's told her a few times now that he has no openings. "I know, but see, earlier today on the phone," she says, "you were so positive, and optimistic, and you said so many nice things. I mean, frankly, you made me sound great! So great that I thought, 'Hey, you should hire that girl.'" Cute, but Rory, he's not going for it, so perhaps...shutting up? No? Of course not. The bottom line, Rory says, is that Mitchum was wrong. She knows this paper backward and forward and she's a good writer and, as an attractive bonus, she's willing to work cheap. Now, many of the good people of the GG forum were highly wrought over this (and subsequent) scene(s) of Rory's aggression on this matter. I have to say, though, that I kind of like it. ["So fired." -- Wing Chun] I think they flog it way too hard, but I like that Rory's doing this. I wish she had been as forthright with her family and not moved out of her grandparents' house in secret, but I think this is Good Rory, if perhaps disguised as Pushy Rory. She begs for five minutes of time, saying she's most concerned about finding the right place for herself. "Well, it's not the right place for you," he says, frustrated, "because I have no place for you!" He refuses her request for time and walks away as she remains, determined to wait.
