Kalinda stares into space most of the day, these days.
Alicia: "Kalinda. You have a dog-trainer friend, right?"
Kalinda: "You really don't know much about the lesbian community, do you?"
The partners are, of course, rioting. But not about the future, or this marvelous thing that Lockhart and Gardner have built that supplies them with compensation and benefits and bonuses, no. Just about being their whiny bitchy entitled lawyer selves, like usual.
L/G: "Anyway, we didn't get liquidated and you'll still get paid and work on cases. Everything else, shut up about it for now. They've assigned us a trustee, who'll vet new cases and look at ways to save money..."
Rioters: "So he can veto you?"
Diane: "In theory, but have you met me?"
Trustee: "Scuse me."
Rioters: "But you've answered all our questions! And we still need to act out!"
Trustee: "Scuse me."
L/G: "I'm guessing he's a nice guy, anyway. He's probably tops."
Trustee: "Hello? It's me, Nathan Lane. Your trustee?"
L/G: "Normal Nathan Lane, or beyond-obnoxious Rip Taylor Nathan Lane?"
Clarke Hayden: "Actually, I'm toning it down a great deal because I'm grateful for the opportunity to demonstrate I'm still occasionally a talented actor, and not just an outdated and offensive cartoon about gay people that was old twenty years ago."
L/G: "See, guys? Nothing to worry about. Even toned down, he's still pretty adorable."
Hayden: "The paintings everywhere, leased?"
Diane: "No, we own them. I go to galleries and get hit on by bounty hunters, like, all the time."
Will: "And also, our clients are rich as hell. We need to look swank or else they'll think we're in $60M debt or something."
Hayden: "But the office furniture is leased?"
Will: "Um, is this where we lose all our furniture and it's just yoga balls and iPads? If I wanted to work at Google I'd have been born twenty years later."
Hayden: "No, I'm just trying to scare you, basically. And distract you from randomly mentioning that we're going to end up firing, say, everybody. Oh, this red painting is nice."
Diane: "It's from my personal collection. Don't touch it. Don't even look at it."
