Deb knocks quietly on the door and says, "I figured if I kept bringing by food, you're bound to eat something sometime." Brooke's foot goes right back into its rightful place in her mouth: "I'm starving!" Pause. "But that's not for me, example of that stupid quotient thing, I'm just going to go." Karen asks her to stay, though, and says they can have dinner together. Brooke says she'd like that, and she'll go get drinks. Karen sees the bag embossed with "Karen's Café" and comments, "That looks great!" Deb explains that a start-up company gave them a hundred for free as a test run. She continues, "I know it's the last thing on your mind, but business is fine." Karen starts unpacking the bag: "It's a strange world when the least important thing is doing well and the most important thing is just hanging on." Deb asks if there's anything else she can do. Karen says yes, and wants Deb to thank Dan for her: "I haven't had a chance, things have been so crazy, but as soon as I can leave the hospital, I'll stop by the house." Deb says hastily, "Dan isn't living at the house." Why? "We're getting a divorce." Karen says, "This may sound crazy, but I'm sorry." Deb thanks her, and then leaves. Karen shakes her head, lets out a deep breath, and says, "It was only six weeks?" Our thoughts exactly, Karen, our thoughts exactly.
A well-dressed, attractive woman comes into Dan Scott Motors and admires a car. Of course, this prompts Dan to come out of his office and say, "That car's perfect for you!" She traces her hand over the sports car, and answers flirtatiously, "How's that?" Dan answers, "Smooth lines, sleek styling -- Dan Scott." He holds out his hand; she says it's a pleasure to meet him. She continues, "Cynthia Price, your wife's new attorney." Dan immediately drops his hand. Cynthia says, "I came here to tell you that I've read the mediation agreement and I think that it's more than fair. I wanted to give you a last chance to accept it." Dan tells her that he's got a lot invested in his life, in his family, and, I quote: "Deb's not getting rid of me that easily." Cynthia asks, "Is that love talking or just a bruised ego?" Dan replies brazenly, "Roll the dice and find out. But first, go back to your client and ask if she's ready for what'll come out about her if she does go to trial." Again, this is the way to smooth over things with him and Deb? To strong-arm her into taking him back? Cynthia nods, then says, "See you in court," as she walks out of the shop.
