Cut to the gym, where Richard is huffing and puffing on the Stairmaster. Chandler arrives, and his father's happy to see that, if anything, spending four years in the Navy has taught his son how to be prompt.

Remember, this is the same division that had its stock split twice in the past two years. How is the division constantly in the red but having its stock split twice and offers are constantly coming in to buy it? ["Amazon.com, much? I don't understand that shit either." -- Wing Chun] It looks like the person in charge of script continuity took a little nap here. Regardless, Richard is against doing anything with the aviation business, especially now that Chandler is joining the firm. And we cut to...
