Jane takes a moment, announces that her work is done, and quits. She doesn't want to get blamed for the campaign's mistakes, but they don't want more press about trouble with his campaign staff. My partying is cut short as Vinick tells Jane that he doesn't want her to quit. She responds, "I have a reputation to protect." "Quitter?" he asks. "Better than loser," Jane spits. "Then don't lose!" Vinick yells. Jane insists that the press conference is a mistake, but Vinick maintains that if the press gets all of its questions out of its collective system, then it's finally going to be done. He gets Jane by the ego. "If I win the election, you're going to get all the credit. You came onto a sinking ship and you saved the day." "If you lose?" she asks. "Then you came onto a sinking ship and it sank. It's not your fault." Vinick asks Jane to do it his way this time, and then her way the rest of the time until the election. She asks what will happen if they disagree. "Then we'll fight about it." "And we'll end up doing it your way," she surmises. But her brittle-bitch exterior has been cracked, and she gives a little smirk of respect for the old man with the broken hand and his crazy ideas that just might work. Vinick is called to the stage. As they all get up to leave the room, Bruno is the last one out and finds a briefcase. He opens it up, presumably to see whom it belongs to.
