J&R. Goetz approaches Mimi and tries to play Mr. Nice Guy about how she found the accounting "error." He'd really like to see her math on the subject. Mimi has no problem with that and explains that Trish has the ledger with the discrepancy. "I saw her book -- the numbers look fine," Goetz says calmly. "Well, they do unless you compare them with my ledger, in which case the numbers are different entirely," Mimi smiles back. Goetz would like to see her ledger. Mimi explains that she keeps that at home but she did make notations in the margin of the J&R book where he can see that the numbers started to diverge when the new currency arrived. Goetz takes a deep breath and evils, "Please don't take this the wrong way, Mimi, but I can't just take your word for it. I need to see your ledger." "Well, please don't take this the wrong way," Miss IRS returns, "But in order to provide independent oversight, I need to be independent." "You are accusing someone in this company of embezzlement -- that's a very serious charge," Goetz menaces. Mimi retorts that she's not accusing anyone of embezzling. Goetz sort of realizes that he just exposed his cheating hand but bolsters himself up with a condescending power play, "I'm the Chief Administer of this town and I want your ledger. Valuable information like that should be kept in a safe place, not at home where practically anything can happen to it." Mimi, angered to tears, whispers hoarsely that she will bring the ledger tomorrow. Goetz thanks her. Mimi stands up but Goetz doesn't move. "Excuse me, please," Mimi whispers, just barely keeping her rage in check. Goetz stares her down and slowly moves out of her way. Mimi edges around him and out of the office. Goetz stares after her. She should have kneed him on her way out.
