Diane: "We can't negotiate over appreciation. It has to be about money, because that's quantifiable."
Will: "You are already leaving. What is the difference if you do it now, or two weeks from now?"
Alicia: "Why the fuck am I ever part of these conversations?"
Tara: "I'm keeping him alive. That's the only way I know how to protect him."
Will: "The deal was we would do this until it wasn't fun anymore. It's no longer fun."
Diane: "Fine. Bump it up by 20 percent. I'll be home until you figure something out."
Tara: "Feel him kicking, Kathy. Just feel him."
Will: "She'll come around. They can't swear her in with this amount of conflict over her head. She could bring the whole thing down on her head and it wouldn't make sense. She'll be okay."
Alicia: "He's got a 15 percent chance of keeping it alive. But I can't be a part of that anymore. We need to leave this week. Immediately."
Cary: "Are you sure about this?"
Alicia: "I'm sure about nothing. But I can't carry the entire body of equity partners on my back knowing that I'm holding onto something that's already gone."
Cary: "That would be very selfish."
Diane with guns (and Kurt!), Elsbeth Tascioni (!) and Rita Wilson's Viola Walsh show up for a sexual harassment suit that may be related to Lyman running around without pants, and Eli clashes with Jackie over the usual. It's interesting though that the surrogacy case and the Diane/Will clash were the big things in a previous press release, which makes me wonder whether the tension is going to ratchet up, or down, or all those things are still going to be true, leading into the Red Wedding on 10/27...
