Will: "...A koi pond? Jesus with this nouveau riche bullshit."
Alicia: "And it wasn't foreclosed. Just badly tended. The CDC isn't positive, but it opens up their wiggle room."
Will: "I know you know this, but Canning's going to wait until you get breakfast and then say he tried to reach you about the ten o'clock meeting, so stay on his ass."
Alicia: "Am I ever coming home? What about the ever-present danger of my children not having me around for thirty-six hours? And do they even sell wine in Minnesota?"
Diane: "We'll send out clothes and incidentals. Just be glad it's not snowing."
Diane: "People and their motherfucking water features. I tell ya... Oh, shit. Hayden."
(He's squat but he's fast, our little badger. She only barely beats him to the elevator.)
Diane: "I have been trying to get your attention all day!"
Hayden: "It didn't work. I'm super busy doing shit."
Diane: "Have you received by any chance a notice of mediation?"
Their standoff lasts so long it makes the elevator door do that angry buzz thing.
Diane: "Dude. Is there something I should know?"
Hayden: "I requested the mediation. I want you deposed. I can't merge the firm with you in control."
Diane: "Uh, what? We have been super awesome to you."
Hayden: "This is not about being awesome, this is about you dicked me over when I solved your problems, which made me feel stupid and make me feel like you are stupid."
Diane: "They wanted to break us up! Sell off the parts! Steal David Lee!"
Hayden: "I know. It was awesome. See, here's how it actually works. You owe creditors money. They don't give a shit about your self-fulfillment, they just want money. And you sabotaged..."
Diane: "-- Then stop fucking with us and let us make their money."
Hayden: "That's your argument in the mediation. That's how it's gonna go. But you're asking that the creditors -- who could get 70 cents on the dollar right now, from a merger -- to instead trust you, the people who fucked it all up, to pull some kind of Bad News Bears move at the last second. So good luck with that."
And the worst part is, you can't even say "Will Gardner was out of commission and now he is back as head of Litigation and regularly makes Bad News Bears plays, so it's actually doable," because then the next question is, "Well, why was he out of commission? ...Oh, for bribing judges? Cool, that's definitely put me at ease."
