Louis runs up to Alicia to beat the drum once again on how unfair it is that settlements are so high and that attorneys use inefficiency to bill their hours -- the usual stuff he hates -- but Caitlin realizes this is a clue to his objections: The damages. Find the right number and, presumably, avoid politicizing the whole thing, and Canning and Martha might cave.
Andrew Wiley approaches a fit-looking Will Gardner at the hoops and somehow they don't know each other. He tells Will immediately that he's freelancing for Wendy, and Will gets scared. They have a long talk while his daughter rides around them in a circle; it's disorienting.
Will: "This is not about the imagined things of these basketball games. It's about extracurricular stuff."
Wiley: "I just think it's funny how you keep winning cases all the time."
Will: "We are a very good firm. Do you not watch this show? It's always Kalinda in the fourth act. Or else Alicia thinks of something at the last second."
Wiley: "I'm just saying, that is kind of unrealistic."
Will: "You know what, go make a list of cases you think were won weirdly, and I will walk you through it."
Fairly friendly, all things considered.
Will: "Eli? Are you lost? Why are you in my office? You know I hate you, right?"
Eli: "I just wanted to see what it's like when you work. I'm trying to be nice. Get to know you. Stop being the island of awesome."
Will: "Aw, Jesus. Fine, sit down. Is this going to get weird?"
(He fixes Eli with a frozen, horrific Joker grin that ensures it will get weird.)
Will: "So you want me to share the wealth? Give you extra work, if I feel like it?"
Eli: "It sort of sounds ridiculous right now, with you making that gorilla rictus face."
Will: "Does it now."
Eli: "How do I... Make you like me? And give me things? It's like my one power, but then because you hate me so much it's like I freeze and can't even think of how to do it. And also, that face that you are making has me wanting to barf. How do I make you stop doing that?"
Will: "I am very mysterious. That is true, Eli. In these ways and in many other ways."
Alicia: "Okay, so you get them with how she can't get another job..."
(Kalinda enters, restricting her swag as much as possible in deference to Alicia hating her ass. Not enough, though.)
Alicia: "Did you fuckin' need something?"
Kalinda, speaking only to Caitlin: "It's a copy of an email..."
Caitlin: "Yay! Damages, Alicia."
Alicia: "I didn't know you were working on this case, or I would have thrown a fit."
Poor Innocent Caitlin: "I asked her, it was me! Did you know she's a really good investigator? And probably a very good friend."
