Monica's at lunch with a younger, bangs-tastic Rachel Zane, expositing how the latter is studying for the LSATs and plans to be a lawyer in five years. Rachel also notices Louis sitting at another table across the restaurant and asks Monica how often he asks her out. Monica says every day, but doesn't care. Harvey sits down with Louis, mocks him for his stalking (even though Louis claims he's been coming here this time every week for years and will continue to do so until his death), and hands over a sheaf of heavily redacted financial records, claiming the client works for another firm. He lets Louis name a couple and think he's on the right track and in seconds, Louis has already determined that the perp has framed some other "smuck," unaware that the smuck is Louis himself. Given that Harvey is asking for Louis's help, he can't exactly tear into him for mispronouncing "schmuck," but I still don't see how he doesn't immediately start quoting My Blue Heaven.
Present-day Mike finds present-day Monica in that same restaurant, which is odd because they still look all past-yellowy. Looks like the cinematographer forgot to take the filters out. He hands her a lawsuit he drew up unsolicited, in which she's "asking" for ten million in damages from Pearson Hardman. Mike says she got screwed five years ago and Harvey will back her up. She doesn't trust Mike's motives, let alone Harvey's. Mike pushes her, saying he's heard she's earning 40 grand a year in retail, but she still doesn't want any part of it. But Mike does at least prevail upon her to take the papers. As he leaves and she returns to her table, we see in the background none other than Louis. Kind of curious that Harvey would have forgotten that Louis comes here at the same time every week, isn't it?
Back in the past, Harvey tells Jessica that Daniel Hardman is the embezzler, and is ready to stake his career on it. "You are, "Jessica warns direly. Interesting how Harvey went from fingering Louis to trusting his interpretation of the paper trail so thoroughly. He hands over a stack of spreadsheets, a moment's scanning of which totally convinces Jessica. Harvey tells her to go to the DA, but she's going to Hardman against Harvey's advice. "What would you do if it were me?" Jessica asks. Well, that shuts him up. At least long enough for her to get out of the room.
