Has not been redecorated in months! All that stipend money they talked about last season, just sitting in an account, not getting used on art. Hmm.
Eli: "We need to talk about the inauguration!"
Alicia: "No, girl. You need to talk about the inauguration."
Carey flashes six fingers at her, over Eli's shoulder, and she nods.
Eli: "What was that. Six days 'til you leave? Man, I'm gonna miss this office. This old, unreplaced art and everything. Do you really have to go?"
Alicia: "What do you want, Eli. What can I do for you."
Eli: "You told Nora you want the Inaugural Ball moved to the Governor's Mansion, but traditionally it's held at Exposition Hall, and I'm getting some trouble from the unions..."
Alicia: "You... How can you possibly think I would have any goddamn opinion about that? You came all the way to my office to ask me about a thing I would never, ever do?"
Eli: "Nora doesn't make mistakes. She said Mrs. Florrick insisted... Oh."
Alicia: "There it is."
Eli: "Oh God. I don't want to deal with her today."
Alicia: "Good luck, honey."
She pats his back on the way out, which is always so gratifying when they do that stuff with each other -- remember after the election, when they woke up and sweetly watched torture porn together? -- and he swallows his gorge and calls Nora back, and of course Jackie Florrick is standing right there, excited to start whatever stiff-upper-lip shit with him.
Kurt and Diane, as befits a meal after the shooting range, are eating steak and potatoes when they run into Francesca and Lyle Strawman, old liberal friends of Diane's that went to school with her and Viola and are now happily married, thanks to Diane's meddling. They are into NPR, vacationing in Lyon, and being just miserable to be around.
Strawmans: "You guys smell like you were camping."
McVeigh: "It's gunpowder. That's not a joke. We were shooting guns for fun."
Diane: "I am doing this new thing where I blow people's minds. Is it working?"
Strawmans: "Did you know Viola's in town?"
Diane: "No and I don't care. What's this? Oh, a work call. Very important. Please annoy the shit out of my fiancé, Kurt McVeigh."
Strawmans: "Done. You know what your last name reminds me of?"
