Nico arrives home, where husband Charles inquires as to how her day went, although he doesn't look up from his work until he notices that she hasn't answered. "Fine," she tells him, with her back to him. Lies push them further and further apart every day!
Exciting new development in the theme-song-lyric puzzle: This week our unnamed CaptionMax captioner provides an entirely different translation! It's much wussier than Brian-from-CaptionMax's attempt last week's; whole lines, including the one where I think the singer says "Take your shirt off," are omitted (with little music notes filling the space). And the final couplet is rendered as "Let's break out/When the sun is shining," which seems at least as likely as last week's "Let's freak out/Work the sunshine." Curiouser and curiouser. (Ironically, the song seems to be titled "Read My Lips." Would that we could, breathy female vocalist. Would that we could.)
Wendy, encouraged by Nico's comments about her pet project, is determined to make a big hit out of Bombay Highway -- or at least to give it a shot at the big time, rather than restricting it to the "art-house crowd," as trusty guy-Friday Sal recommends. Money is tight, he reminds her, and her last arty project flopped; she contends that failure was due to lame publicity. Sal points out that blowing a lot of money on a bomb will be bad for Wendy's reputation as a studio head. Wendy is committed to the project.
Hector calls another quick meeting with Nico -- he, and the lawyer handling the harassment case, inform her that Kirby has turned down their generous settlement offer. Hector asks, again, whether there is any truth to Kirby's allegations, and Nico's not-very-convincing denial is good enough to satisfy him. He tells the lawyer to protect the company's assets at all costs. Nico gulps.
