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."
B&B GIFT SHOPPE
Alicia's so concerned with keeping her eyes on the Business Center down the hill, as she combs the aisles for overpriced trial-size mouthwashes and whatever sundries, that she doesn't notice the other woman in there doing the same thing until both their hands fall on the same tiny toothpaste tube. (The other woman is named Simone, it's -- spoiler alert -- not our first time seeing her, and she's played by Rufus Humphrey's embattled and ultimately super-vindicated ex-wife.)
Ladies: "Ah! Another person! God, it is nice to see you, other person. Here, you take this last toothpaste tube, I demand it."
Alicia: "No seriously, I'm just spying here anyway, because I'm bored. I have incidentals on their way."
Simone: "No, no, you take it. Or we could, um, split it?"
Alicia: "That would be messy."
Ladies: "HA! Messy. We are funny. We are friends. Toothpaste friends."
Alicia spots Canning making his way down toward the Business Center and excuses herself in a flurry, hurling her sundries in all directions as she goes.
"It was nice meeting you! I don't have any friends! I love you!" she shouts, but thanks to the Doppler Effect all Simone hears is "Snisting! Vennifrens! Vloo!"

Alicia: "Not so fast, leprechaun."
Louis: "Alicia! I was just about to leave you this note, under a rock, way over there. Wilkes is ready to meet with you! Right now!"
Alicia: "Great. See you on the other side of this door. Right now."
Alicia: "...Right now, huh?"
Louis: "It's so weird. I don't know where he is."
Alicia: "Cool, let's just stand here until I get hungry enough to roast your body over an open flame."
Louis: "So I have a friend who's dying."
Alicia: "Um, what? Are you... Are we people all of a sudden?"
Louis: "He wants me to give his eulogy. Just emailed me."
Alicia: "He's in the process of dying and just dashed off a quick email, huh?"
