Mike meets Rachel at a hot dog stand four blocks from the office. She's all happy and wanting to talk about taking the LSATs again, but he says they can't do this. He drops the name Colin McCarthy -- the first-year she dated, dumped and who got fired two months later after his work dropped off. "That's why you don't want to date someone from the office." Mike says he's scared of similarly screwing up his job and screwing up getting to work with Rachel, both of which he loves. She's not buying, it and says she gets the message: "I'm just not good enough for you." As she walks away, Mike looks as upset as she does, but if he could tell her the truth, they wouldn't have had to have this conversation in the first place.
In Daniel's completed new office late at night, Louis is dictating his to-do list for the room's final preparations into his new Dictaphone when Jessica comes in. "I want it to be perfect for when Daniel gets back," Louis explains to Jessica. She apologizes for blowing him off that morning and asks if he still needs her. Louis gives her an appraising look and says "no." Jessica's allies are dropping off fast. Louis walks out, giving us a good look at the name on the door: "Daniel Hardman, Founding Partner." Perhaps it's time for Louis to change his own door to read "Louis Litt, Ex-Piss-Boy."
