Rod walks back to the table. His eyebrows are twitching. He whisper-threatens, "D'Ambrosio wants you first chair, fine. But pull a stunt like that again and you will lose." Jimmy whisper-whines that it was "a shot." Blah D'Ambrosio needs to see the fight blah. Bobby: "Just don't lose your credibility in the process." Whew. Bobby told him.
The Firm. A lovely young man, freshly imported from The WB (Young Americans, in fact), is tutoring Lucy on the valuable uses of the mouse. They click together. He says, "If you hit this, you go right to the files." She half-smiles and says, "Yeah! Right." He moons, "You are totally computer literate." Ellenor walks over to Rebecca and Lindsay, who have nothing better to do but watch the little fella melt all over Lucy, of all people. Ellenor cracks, "Why isn't Doogie in school?" She hands Rebecca a book. They all giggle. Rebecca replies, "His name is Skip. His high school has a work-study program." Ellenor replies, "He's been here eight times and the computers are never fixed. If he'd quit hitting on Lucy --" Well, that's because the computers are fake. They aren't even turned on most of the time. Lindsay: "Is it me or is he kind of cute?" He is cute, in a pathetic, how-bad-could-this-possibly-be kind of way. Skip the wondercrush says, "You've totally mastered the system. Most people would take, like, weeks. Took you like four days. You're awesome!" He is smitten. He obviously hasn't learned that Lucy does absolutely no work. None. The three biddies are watching the two of them like they're Romeo and Juliet. Do they not notice that Ellenor, Rebecca, and Lindsay are staring at them like puppets in a box? Honestly. Skip continues, "Until you guys upgrade there's some things I can't do." He pauses. Stares at Lucy. And then says, "Thing about computers. They offer so much, all you have to do is sit back and let them do it for you." He almost falls into her face. "Your hair smells like summer." Ew. Gross. It looks like he almost ate her ear.
