The Firm. Ellenor leads Mitchell into the conference room. He apologizes for his "inappropriate behaviour." Apparently, he's going through some personal problems at home and, well, he didn't think before he spoke. Mitchell: "Obviously any deal predicated on a sexual relationship is wrong and hereby off the table." He's mad at himself that he even threw it out there. Ellenor wants to start all over again. She launches into her Maynard The Good speech. Mitchell's not buying it. He's got his orders from upstairs and can't cut a good deal. The statute has his hands tied. He could maybe sell ten years to his boss, but that's as low as it's going to go for poor Maynard. Ellenor thinks that ten years is excessive. Mitchell doesn't know what else to tell his "old friend." The Sexual Tension Sonata rallies. Ellenor starts quoting her instincts. She believes the offer wasn't pulled because of his conscience, but rather because she wouldn't go for his, ahem, deal. Mitchell insists that she's wrong. But his voice sounds kind of funny. And the music is still going, so you know Ellenor is onto something. Ellie: "I want the six months." He's sorry, but any favourable deal would be met with suspicion at this point and he's "just going to play this," ahem, "straight." I'm sure no innuendo was intended. Heh. Any. Way. Ellenor responds, "Straight or punitive?" Ten years is the deal. And suppose sex weren't off the table. Mitchell: "I'll say it again. Ten years is it."
