Will and Diane look up when Hayden arrives, like what now, but his face is apologetic indeed. All this mess: "I've been subpoenaed. So."
When Cary and Kalinda show up, David Lee asks Dina and her dad to step out so they can talk to Neil and his lawyer one-on-one. Dad balks, but Dina's fine with it: Either way, David Lee says, it's in her best interest to leave for a minute. They are lovey-dovey, it's cute, and she's gone.
Cary: "What's this hidden $112K in your SEC filings?"
Eleanor: "First of all, 'hidden' is a nasty word. And also, that's a pittance."
Kalinda: "It pays out to a shell company called JC Ventures, sole beneficiary one Jacob Carlisle..."
(Jacob: "Your secret gay lover! Who is me, Neil Gross! I have finally entered the show and left the mundane world behind!")
Kalinda: "...Who is the son of a one-night stand you had years ago."
(Jacob: "...Annnnnd we're back.")
Eleanor: "Wait, so you're extorting us? Fuck you, I'll have your license for this..."
Neil: "No. Give them whatever they want. It might be extortion, but it's working."
He runs outside to kiss his bride, and it's pretty amazing because it's something that could only happen in a story: You approach this Prisoner's Dilemma about whether or not you can ever accept the guy's promise, if both of you and both your future selves are up to the challenge, and then this thing happens. A thing Dina doesn't even really need to know about, in terms of where it puts his feelings for her, but which seals the deal for both of them. It's not worth going through the rest of it, when he's just trying to be a good dude to this kid. Honesty is a better policy, but considering this was all arranged by David Lee, it's about the least disgusting extortion attempt-and-outcome you could ever hope for.
Diane: "Canning, stop saying 'shenanigans.'"
Canning: "Fine. Mr. Hayden, you were closest to the 'goings-on' at L/G, correct?"
Hayden: "I mean, I was the Trustee. I knew about the five partnerships, and I disagreed with them, but only because it's a pattern they have of valuing relationships over..."
Canning: "And they were doing it to raise money, of course."
Judge: "Objection sustained."
Canning: "But okay, that $3M in capital contributions would, on paper, give the illusion of financial success. So isn't that really just a Ponzi scheme to sway this court?"
Hayden: "I mean, you're being gross, but financially it would play out like that."
Canning: "So isn't this a quid pro quo?"
Hayden: "You mean like when you offered me a job yesterday for the same reason?"
Canning: "-- Whoa! Let's move on from that."
Diane: "Your Honor, can we hear the rest of that, actually?"
