Sarah is perched in Vicki Lawrence's office, telling her a whole flock of lies about how she became a successful president of a temp agency. "Remarkable. What can I say? You're inspiring," Vicki tells her. "This is going to be a very impertinent question but you're making me a little insecure. Exactly how old are you?" Sarah gawks at her. "Twenty-four," she says. Vicki sighs and says she wishes she didn't have another couple of agencies she's perfectly happy using -- Sarah interrupts, "And they're both very good, Elaine, but we do things a little differently at T.S. We're younger, we're hipper --" Vicki interrupts Sarah, holding up a hand, "I'm not going to make a change now, but it's been worth it, just to get a chance to sit and talk to you," she says finally. Why is Sarah trying to make a sale? Didn't she tell Elaine that she wasn't taking any more clients either because January was such a busy month for them? Liar, liar, hair on fire. Dinners got caught in a telephone wire. "So, now are you going to give me your card?" Vicki asks. Sarah blanches, "Sure, I wouldn't want to be unprepared twice." She passes over a card. "Mellon?" Vicki reads, "I thought you said your last name was Merrin?" Sarah quickly says, "It is. Well, I had those printed a couple of months ago when I was engaged. I was going to take his name, so I had the cards made up, and then, well, he changed his mind. My secretary sometimes slips them in by mistake." Someone needs to inform the writers that no one uses the term "secretary" anymore -- it has too many degrading connotations. The word is assistant. Use it, make it your friend. Oh, but I forgot, this is the episode where Jennifer Love Hewitt liked getting "all corporate" and playing office. Yeah, well, she's still a dumb-ass. Vicki nods sympathetically, "The same thing happened to me." "With your secretary?" Sarah asks. "No, sweetie, my fiancé, I was left at the altar. Fifteen years ago," Vicki tells her. "Still hurts, huh?" Sarah asks, mustering up eyes misty with unshed tears. "Yeah," Vicki sighs. Sarah looks down and Vicki says, "You know, what the hell? I've got a couple of people in my own department that are out sick, and I was going to call Kelly Girls, but why don't you send two people over to me tomorrow and we'll call it a start." Sarah beams through her misty tears of fake sympathy.
