We're back the next day as Dana walks into that notorious suit-wearer Isaac's office and asks for any word on "our futures?" and Isaac tells her what everyone else was telling her -- that Fox, Disney, and Time-Warner will all drop the cable interest. "Yeah," says Dana. "I met a Balding Guy with Big Sideburns last night at Anthony's --" but before she can go on, Dan barges in and says, "Did you know that Kim isn't my secretary?" he asks. "Yeah," says Dana. "I have been treating her like she was my secretary," he says. Dana nods and sadly smiles and says, "Yes, I know." So neither Kim nor Dana said anything about this. Sorry. I'm not buying it. Dan asks if there is someone there who is his secretary but he doesn't know about it, and Dana tells him no. "Okay," says Dan thoughtfully, and he walks out looking troubled while Isaac has a good laugh over what an idiot Dan is and closes the door. Isaac then asks Dana to continue her riveting story, but Dana says it doesn't matter. Then she asks when another bidder will step up. Then Isaac launches into this long story about his nephew who's a trauma surgeon in Detroit. Blah blah blah about how bad this guy feels when he loses a patient, and that he wants to open a restaurant in Albuquerque even though Isaac tells him the hospitals are inadequate and overcrowded, et cetera et cetera. "At best, you had maybe two-thirds of the budget you needed to do the job, in a market that was already oversaturated when you got there," he tells Dana. So if it goes down, he's saying, she gets up and goes to L.A. with Dan and Casey and tries it again, blah blah. She wants to know what he'll do. "Two trees, a hammock, and a stack of books this high," he says. Isaac's phone rings. Maybe I'll run my own MBTV sweeps contest. Guess which bidder just dropped out? Guess what the stock price was? People who correctly guessed Time-Warner and $27 a share may continue reading.
