Fairly Legal s01e10 Episode Script

Bridges

Yeah, well, I dropped it off last night, and I thought maybe you'd have the results.
What time does the lab open? Okay, you've done this a zillion times.
I mean, can't you just, you know, hold it up to the light, you can shake it around a few times, and then you can tell what No of course.
Yeah.
I'm I'm I'm kidding.
Mm-hmm.
Well, call me as soon as you know.
Thank you so much.
And while I am honored to be receiving this Siegal Award, I am also painfully aware of all the people whose efforts actually made it happen.
My support staff.
My fellow attorneys in the D.
A.
's office.
All the judges and lawyers and employees of the court this is boring, right? I mean, I shouldn't mention all these individual groups.
Oh, yeah whatever you think.
See, you're not paying attention because you're bored.
That's absolutely not true.
So you're just being rude then, huh? No.
I'm absorbing the energy of your speech.
- Uh-huh.
- You said you just wanted to run it through, work out the kinks.
I suppose I should enjoy the irony.
Normally, you can't wait to criticize me, but today, when I actually need some constructive criticism, - you can't be bothered.
- Justin Forget it! No, it doesn't matter.
No, listen.
It's because we both know you have been working on this for a month.
And we both know it's as good as it can possibly be.
What is going on with you? What do you mean? You just I don't know.
You have, like, this strange look on your face.
Oh, my God.
- It's my face.
- Uh-huh.
Okay, I will meet you at the restaurant at 12:30.
But right now, I have to go get my ass kicked.
- What for? - I don't know yet.
Is this the end of days? Oh, I am so sorry.
Wait, what? What did I do? Am I in contempt? Did I do something again? Not yet, but the day is young.
You're on time.
That seemed momentous.
Yes, sir.
Well, I just wanted to show you that I have great respect for the Court, sir.
That will require more than just looking at your watch.
Well, I don't wear a watch.
Well, that explains a lot.
Danny and Ralph Sabbatino, brothers.
Good luck.
Okay, what's, uh what's the issue? Keeping 'em out of my court.
Yes, sir.
Their issue.
Parking spaces.
Oh, really? That just seems so Minor? It always is with them.
This is the evidence, the motions, and other detritus of justice that they have filed over the years chronicling a litany of petty complaints that have made their way into my courtroom.
Their parking space dispute will not join them.
Yes, sir.
I will get on this.
It's on the schedule for tomorrow, 9:00 A.
M.
What? Judge, come on.
I mean, these guys are clearly playing out some relationship mess through the courts.
You you can't give me one day to fix this.
- Yes, I can.
- No, you can't.
You see, tomorrow morning, two miles offshore, I'm having a ceremony for my dad.
I'm scattering his ashes at sea.
Ah.
Your dad was a great man.
Thank you.
So can't I have a little bit more time? - No.
You can do this.
- Come on! Probably.
You can't throw me in jail if it doesn't work out.
You keep telling yourself that.
[Chuckles] So Ralph Sabbatino is coming at 10:00, and Danny at 10:30? Okay, yes, separate rooms until I've had a chance to talk to them.
And, um absolutely.
Coffee, muffins, cookies anything that might make grumpy men feel warm and fuzzy inside.
That would be great.
Miss Reed.
That's me.
My name is Goran Pavlek.
I am vice-counsel for Croatia.
And I'm in need of your help.
Uh, Mr.
Pavlek - Goran.
- Goran.
Yes, I'd love to help you.
If you'd like, you can call my office, - make an appointment.
- I need you to get in the car.
[Chuckles] I'm sorry, but I have an appointment to get to.
Miss Reed, it's important.
Time sensitive.
And your state department indicated you called the state department? A low-level attache, but yes.
And they told me how you'd helped the Consulate of Colombia and Nicaragua.
What's this about? One of our citizens came to the U.
S.
To visit her granddaughter after the death of the girl's mother.
- Okay.
- Now the woman wants the girl, who also holds a Croatian passport, to return home with her.
That's sad, but that's not something that requires a mediator.
But the girl's guardian, an American, objected.
So now the grandmother brought the girl to the Consulate, and she refuses to leave.
So she kidnapped her.
That is the crux of my problem, hmm? From an American perspective, the conclusion might be obvious.
But I am afraid that the people of Croatia might see this as necessary, and insist that I reunite the girl with her family.
I have an pointment to get to.
My job is to work for the Croatian people to build a bridge to your fine country.
Right now my bridge is in danger of burning down.
So you don't want this to go public.
My car is at your disposal, if that would make things easier.
After all, we are talking about a little girl.
Dirty pool, Goran.
- [Chuckles] - Dirty, dirty, dirty pool.
I sense you are a woman with a soft spot.
Only today.
Miss Reed, do you think you will be able to resolve this quickly? I don't know, but this is a family matter, so there's no reason to think it'll turn into an international incident.
Get your hands off me! You can't do this.
They're trying to steal my daughter.
They've kidnapped my daughter! - [Speaking croatian] - Get off! Get your hands off me! I hate it when I'm wrong.
- Mr.
Marshall? - I need to get back in there.
Mr.
Marshall, my name is Kate Reed.
I'm a mediator.
I want my daughter! - Can you back up, please? - Hey, it's okay.
[Speaking Croatian] Who are you? I've been brought in to resolve the situation to everyone's satisfaction.
Why don't you and I go sit down, and you can tell me what's going on, all right? - Yeah.
- Okay? Come on.
All right.
I called the cops.
I told them that Veronika was in there, and they said they can't do anything.
Yeah, well, you know, even though we're in San Francisco, the Consulate is treated like it's Croatia.
Even our own cops can't go in there - without being asked.
- So I do nothing? Come on, why don't you just sit down and tell me why did Renata go to the Consulate to begin with? Because she wants to take Nica back to Croatia to live for good, and I said no.
Well, why would she want to take her away from her own father? I'm not her biological father.
Oh.
Where is he? I don't know.
Nobody knows.
He's never been in the picture.
Okay.
Um, did you and Renata have problems before this? She's a mother-in-law.
She's always had an opinion about something.
But I didn't think it was so bad that she would try to steal my daughter.
And Theresa, did she want you to keep Nica? We had started the adoption paperwork.
And then she died.
I was there for Nica.
Me.
I held her when she cried.
I made her eat.
IGot her back to school.
Now, I'm not saying that Renata doesn't love her, but I am Nica's father.
Okay, I'm gonna go in there, I'm gonna do what I do, and we're gonna resolve this.
You do realize the Sabbatino brothers are here? Both of them.
I know.
I'm stuck.
Don't worry, I got kugel.
What made you think that kugel is gonna soften their hearts? It's like a breakfast and a dessert.
Just stall them.
- Stall them? - Yes.
Keep 'em happy and in the building.
[Chuckles] Trust me, those guys haven't been happy since before there was manned space flight.
You know what, it is never too late to start.
Judge Nicastro is not gonna be happy if I screw this up for you.
- Leo - Yes? I'm having a very strange day.
[Elevator bell dings] [Speaking Croatian] Yes, I understand.
But miss Reed, she's here to help us.
- Renata, Kate Reed.
- Hi.
- [Speaking croatian] - [Speaking Croatian] Renata, I would love to speak with you, just for a few minutes.
Just so we can decide on the best solution for everybody.
For yourself, for Pete, and especially for Veronika.
Hi.
Goran, maybe you can get her something to eat? Of course.
And you and I can go into the conference room.
I go nowhere without my granddaughter.
I think it would be best if you and I spoke alone.
Just for her.
She belongs with her family.
Yes, but seeking sanctuary in the Consulate is not gonna give you that.
I had no choice.
Pete could not see the truth of what I said.
But he loves Nica.
He is not Nica's father.
But that doesn't mean that he can't take care of her.
When Theresa was alive, yes, they were a family.
But now she belongs with me Her aunts, her uncles, her cousins.
The people who knew her mother.
Okay, Pete and Theresa started adoption proceedings.
Are you sure this is what Theresa would have wanted? What Theresa wanted was to see her daughter grow old and have children of her own.
As for this, I must do what I think is best.
I will stay until I can take Nica home.
When you have a child, you finally get to see what your heart looks like.
It's hard when when your heart dies before you.
Can I get you some fruit? Does he look like a guy who eats fruit to you? Yeah, he's a real physical specimen.
Okay, hold the infighting.
[Beep] Kate Reed's office.
What? Here? Okay, don't let him in the office.
No, don't don't [Beep] I will be right back.
Hey, Danny, the kugel was good.
We'll all be sorry you ate that later.
Real classy.
Real classy of you.
What does that mean? You'll have enough gas to get us all to Pittsburgh.
Mr.
Smith.
Yes.
Hello.
I am Leonardo.
I'm Kate's assistant.
Very nice to meet you.
Uh, you want to get some coffee? I'm here to see Kate.
She's not here.
I'll wait.
Okay, that's great.
Uh, let's go to the lobby downstairs so you can see her the moment that she walks in.
Those chairs look pretty comfy right over here.
Yeah, they're very comfortable.
But the ones downstairs, let me tell you Boy, oh, boy, that's some really comfortable stuff.
Well, hello.
Thank you so much for coming in.
- Sure - Wonderful.
Did you come across some information for us? I'm here to see Kate.
Kate? I've got something burning Inside, uh my head.
[Chuckles] Kid.
You're David Smith.
And she didn't tell you.
[Laughs] That's good.
Um, why don't we go into my office? I think we have a lot to talk about.
I don't know if you heard me a minute ago there, but I'm here to see Kate.
You have a record and a liquor license, which is a parole violation.
Did you hear that? My office is right this way.
- Is Nica coming out? - Uh, not yet.
- This isn't right.
- I talked to Renata.
You both want what's best for Nica.
No, I do.
- I hear you.
- Look, I can't just stand here.
But Pete, there's nothing for you to do.
I'm getting Nica out of there.
Yeah, but they're not gonna let you through.
Just think about this for a second.
You don't want to make a scene.
Everything that you do reflects on your fitness - to keep Nica.
- My fitness? - Yes.
- Renata kidnapped her.
Okay, but you have the high ground right now.
Move.
Move! Peter, no! There are security cameras up there, and guards.
Nothing is keeping me from my daughter.
Yeah, but if you do something crazy, the police will.
I'm not letting you go up there.
[Alarm bell ringing] Told you.
Yes, sir, I understand.
I thought I smelled smoke, so I panicked and I pulled Uh, ma'am, this is for you.
I deserve this.
I completely deserve this fine.
I'm gonna pay this immediately.
I promise.
I don't see her.
Well, probably because they know it's a false alarm.
You're paying this.
Goran Have you met Pete Marshall? This is Veronika's legal guardian.
In my country, we do not call this - a low-key approach.
- Yes, that's true.
There she is.
Nica.
Nica! Nica! Nica! I am calling the police.
And I'm calling the State Department.
You need to stay away from this Consulate.
You need to stop harboring a kidnapper! [Cell phone chimes] Look, we have two people who want what's best for this little girl.
That's a good starting place.
If you call the police, and you call the State Department, then we're gonna have a whole bunch of people involved with their own agendas.
So I'm telling you, give me to the end of the day to figure this out.
I promise you I can do this.
- You come with me.
Let's go.
- I'm not leaving.
Oh, yes you are, because if you don't, then he'll have you arrested.
Right? - I'm afraid so.
- See? Told you.
Let's go.
I say die.
You die.
Okay, that's an Autumn wind Ranger.
It doesn't have that ability.
The hell it doesn't.
You see how he is? What did I I mean, rules mean nothing to this man.
Your whole life you lived between the lines.
- What are you talking about? - You know what, maybe if you lived between the lines, we wouldn't be here right now.
Okay, you see, this is good.
You see how board games teach cooperative play? He wouldn't know cooperation if it grabbed you by the ass.
Okay, Mr.
Sabbatino And you wouldn't know ass grabbing if you had to grab your own ass.
Other Mr.
Sabbatino What does that even mean? I mean, words come on.
Blah, blah, blah.
[Whistles] Oh, my God, I'm becoming Kate.
But believe me, when I look at that massive stack of files on my desk every morning, I sometimes fantasize about pleaing everything out.
You know, just eliminating the stack.
But justice doesn't come easy.
And it shouldn't, because it's too important.
Well, I'm not telling you anything you don't already know.
We're all overworked, we're over-stressed.
Under-rested.
But we're fighting the good fight together.
And for that I am grateful.
And I am grateful for this award, and I thank everyone very much.
Thank you.
Thank you.
[Applause] Thanks.
Thanks.
Could you hold that for me? Appreciate it.
Thank you.
Thank you.
Appreciate it.
Thanks for coming.
- Congratulations, Justin.
- Mm-hmm.
- Yes, congratulations.
- Who are you? Oh, he's Why did you even bother to come? I'm sorry.
Wild guess, you got held up in another mediation? - Yes.
- [Clears throat] Uh I'll be waiting over here.
No, no, no, no.
You don't go anywhere.
- No, you take a walk.
- I'll wait.
Okay, if you leave, I will hunt you down, I will kill you.
Got it.
You're mad.
- [Scoffs] - I know.
I'm so sorry.
I missed your big moment.
No excuses? No spirited defense of your intentions? - No.
- What's going on with you? - Nothing.
- I hate it when you lie to me.
Do not lie to me.
Justin I'm not lying.
Look, this isn't the time or the place.
Oh, come on, that's crap.
If you have something to say, just tell me.
- No, I'm not gonna tell you.
- If you have something to say to me just tell me right here, right now.
If you don't tell me now, then don't tell me later.
I'm pregnant! - Nice speech.
- Thanks, man.
All right.
Hey, Tony.
Congratulations.
Thanks.
Come on, Deputy Mayor wants to talk to you.
Probably wants a campaign contribution.
- Yeah, probably.
- Who knows? Hey, Kate, thanks for calling me back from outside the building.
What are you doing? David Smith is in my office.
That's what I was gonna tell you if you called me back.
I've been busy.
David Smith? UhWell, Leo, why don't you take Mr.
Marshall here into my office and maybe thank you give him some coffee and a magazine or something.
David Smith.
Wow, Lauren.
I'm so glad that you two have had a chance to meet one another.
I hope you're having a super conversation.
Right now I've got how dare you not tell me you found him.
What can I say? I failed sharing in preschool.
- Kate - Okay, really, really, Lauren we are going to talk about this.
Look, I'm on the verge of being sent to jail or creating an international incident.
And those aren't even the most upsetting parts - of my day.
- Stop.
So I don't have time for this right now! Leonardo, where are the Sabbatino brothers? Conference room.
Gentlemen, I'm sorry I'm late.
My name is Kate Reed.
I'll be your mediator today.
Hi, I'm Danny Sabbatino.
Nice to meet you.
Hi, Danny.
Good to meet you.
I'm Ralph Sabbatino, if you don't mind.
Ralph.
Here's how this is gonna work.
Each of you will explain the problem, and then each of you will propose a solution.
If that solution is not mutually acceptable, I will propose a solution.
If that solution is not acceptable, then we all go to jail.
[Laughs] Come on.
We can't go to jail for this.
- What? - I said he said we can't go to jail for this.
- I'm sorry, what? - He said we can't go to jail.
I can't hear you.
What? Can you come a little closer? I can't hear you.
Okay, fine, I can hear you.
But you can and you will go to jail if you continue to act in contempt of a court order to mediate this problem.
So I guess what I'm trying to say is you you get your ass over here.
And you you filed this complaint? Let's go.
- Okay, so behind our dry-cleaning store - there are two parking spaces.
- Yes.
One is for me, and one is for my older, shorter, balder brother, Ralph Sabbatino.
Anyway, this guy like to park close to the lines.
So last month I drive into work, and this bozo repainted the lines so that my space is smaller and his is larger.
And now I can't even get out of my new sports car.
Of course you can't get out of your car.
You bought this convertible with the two big doors just so you could ding me on purpose! All right, I doubt that's why he bought the car.
Why else would he have bought it, for girls? Excuse me, Casanova, so now you're a ladies' man? - Okay, guys - Oh, I made Ann Marie Gentile! What are you talking about? I got to second base with her mother! [Whistles] In your dreams.
Forget about it.
- Hey! - Here's the problem - he's a short - For 38 years!!! [Both shouting at once] - All my life.
- That's it with you! - You're a midget.
- A midget? Is that my fault 'cause I was born tall? [Men continue arguing] - Kate - They're never gonna agree.
- I agree.
- Okay, so uh [Cell phone rings] Yeah? Goran, hello.
I'll be right there.
I have to go back to the Consulate.
Should I send the joy boys home? No.
They'll never come back.
I think they want to go to jail.
It'll just give them something else to just blame on each other.
You keep them there, and hopefully I'll be back just in time to drive us all to jail.
Are you ready? Stay here.
If I give you the high sign, casually walk out of the building.
Okay.
I thought we were gonna keep the authorities out of this.
Veronika went to the kitchen for a snack.
Somehow she got past security.
- Where is she? - We don't know.
We searched the whole building.
She's not here.
- [speaking croatian] - What are you saying? - Speak English! - It is your fault! She ran away from the Consulate, where you took her! Are you done? This is not gonna help bring her back.
Kate, I need to be out there looking for her.
And you will, with me and with the police.
So where would she go? I, uh I don't She'd go home.
Okay, the police are checking? Good.
Where else? She'd be at the school yard.
Not hers.
The one by our house.
She goes there, she hangs out with her friends.
They sit on the swings and they talk.
There's also a hot topic where she goes to meet her girlfriends.
We should call them Rebecca, Renee, and Miranda.
They're Facebook friends.
They post all the time.
We should check her page and the Pinkberry two blocks from the school.
You really know her schedule.
Of course I do.
She's my daughter.
- [Scoffs] - Listen You both want to take care of Veronika, right? But there aren't two sides in this anymore.
There's just a little girl lost in the city.
Now, I'm gonna give this list to the officer in charge, and you both are gonna answer all of Officer Van Doren's questions do you understand? - Yes.
- Do you understand? Yes.
We're gonna need that town car.
Of course.
Hello there, may I speak to judge Nicastro's clerk, please? He's having his gall bladder out.
Is there somebody else I can talk to about a scheduling issue? - What's the problem? - No problem.
Then why am I talking to you? - Judge Nicastro? - Yes.
Well, hello, there.
I'm Leonardo Prince, Kate Reed's assistant.
She wants an extension on the Sabbatino mediation.
Judge, this is it's serious.
- I mean, Kate holds you in - Mr.
Prince.
Yes, your honor? Tell her to get it done.
I will, sir.
I called you three times.
Justin, hi.
You just dropped a bomb and then left.
Well, you kind of made me tell you.
Why is that, Kate? Why do I always have to make you tell me something that involves me, that changes my life? We just we need to talk about this.
Yes, I know, but I just I can't right now.
Look, the client that I'm with, his daughter ran away.
And the police are now interviewing him and her grandmother this is always the case with you always the case, huh? This is about a ten-year-old little girl.
It wouldn't matter if it was a 30-year-old elephant! - Justin.
- It's a baby, Kate.
It's our baby.
It's a big deal.
I promise, as soon as we find Forget it.
[Whispers] I'll call you.
You had a business arrangement with Teddy? We grew up together.
We had a friendship.
And we did business together.
In the neighborhood, there's no distinction, you know.
There is for me.
That's 'cause you're Uptown.
My husband was an honest man who held himself to the highest moral standards.
- I find it very hard to believe - What? That he would associate with me? That's not what I said.
It was implied.
You are painting a picture or a man I have never even met Who founded this firm on embezzled money? - I mean - Where did you meet Teddy? At the Opera.
Teddy hated Opera.
Well, that's where you're wrong.
Actually, Teddy loved the Opera, so much so that he was on the board.
What Teddy loved was being in a position of power.
You loved Teddy.
So did I.
You trusted him.
So did I.
Even though, as you say, he withheld information at your trial that then sent you to jail for 12 years.
This is ridiculous.
None of this makes any sense.
Look, I don't expect you to understand.
And quite frankly, I don't care anymore.
I came here to tell Kate that I was leaving town.
Now, you go ahead and file that notice of violation, or whatever the hell it is.
I'm out of here.
Well, actually, no.
You're not going anywhere.
Pretty quick with the threats there, missy.
Teddy's amendment to include you in the will was flagged at probate.
Now, you can file a protest, but that will take years to resolve.
So be prepared for some pretty major legal fees.
OrI can buy you out.
I don't threaten.
I act.
You are You are really Yeah I am.
Nica? Veronika! Hold on.
- Hold on, hold on.
- Is she all right? - I need to talk to my daughter.
- Thank you for calling us.
She's asking for you.
- For me? - Yeah.
Come on.
I'll be down here if you need me.
Hi.
I'm sorry I made trouble for everyone.
Oh, honey, that's okay.
Look, they were just scared, that's all.
I know.
Look, sometimes sometimes I run away from things too.
You do what you gotta do.
Can you help me run away? Oh, Veronika I didn't know how to say what I want to say.
Yeah The saying.
MmmThat's the tricky part.
I love my grandmother and Pete.
I love them both.
That's a good thing.
Right? That's a really good thing.
I don't want to have to choose.
They're gonna make me choose.
Oh, honey It's okay.
Okay, you two wait for me over there.
And you, little lady, why don't you come with me? Leo, I'd like to introduce you to Veronika.
Hello.
- Nice to meet you.
- Charmed.
Leo's gonna take very good care of you.
- Okay.
- Yeah, uh, there's my desk.
A lot of cool stuff on it.
Check it out.
Oh, I won't touch anything.
That's good because a lot of it is irre Oh, no, honey, you can touch whatever you want.
You know, you can play with these things.
[Banging toys on desk] Nothing breaks, either.
You know, so just have fun.
Go at it.
Where are the Sabbatino brothers? I sent them to the cleaners, literally.
No.
No, no, no, no, no.
Leo, I don't have time for any of this.
I solved their problem.
- What? - Yeah.
It's done.
You want your messages? You didn't drug them, did you? No.
I almost had to drug myself, but then I remembered that my body is a temple you solved their problem? They don't know it yet because they were too busy fighting.
You tell them.
[Gasps] I'm I'm stunned.
You mean, "I don't pay you enough.
" What do you know? You're the man, how are you You two.
You two, come with me.
- I cannot believe she ran away! - You had no right! She would not run anywhere.
She was happy! Are you crazy? She was running away from you! [Whistles] This has been a tough day.
Nika was lost You were upset.
You both were upset.
You blamed one another.
[Both shouting at once] Hey! I wasn't finished! But she's found.
She's fine.
Yet the two of you are still arguing.
Think about that.
Now, I have some other business to attend to so I don't have to mediate the two of you from jail.
Stay here, calmly.
I will be back in an hour, and we will figure this out.
We have to.
Leo and his brother used to fight over dessert every night.
So his father proposed a solution.
One of them got to cut the dessert in half, and the other one got to pick which piece.
So, uh, Danny Danny.
Yes.
You get to repaint the line, and, Ralph, you pick which spot.
- Okay.
- If it's on the left, you back in on the right, you go straight in.
Now, you're both gonna be coming out in the middle, so if one of you parks a little too close, you're both screwed.
Fair? - Fair.
- Fair.
Excellent.
I'll tell judge Nicastro.
Thank you, your highness your honor.
I'm glad we got that settled.
[Cell phone rings] Yes, this is she.
The results.
Okay.
Yeah, I [brothers chatter in background] Okay.
Thank you.
You want to eat chop suey when I can eat broccoli rabe and sausage? - We have that every day.
- You're crazy.
Every day.
Every day we eat the same thing.
I don't want anything less than full custody.
You are not her father! You tell me how I'm not her father! - You tell me that! - You are not her blood! Really? You've been in this room since I left, and you're at exactly the same place? Children are precious.
We don't know how they'll enter our lives.
We don't know how they'll leave our lives.
You need to figure out how to share Veronika.
Because if you don't, somebody else will.
A judge.
A social worker.
A lawyer.
Somebody who who doesn't love Veronika.
Somebody who has to guess what's best.
Or try to fit your precious, your distinctive Veronika into a template that's just a it's a one-size-fits-all.
Is is that what you want? No.
Nobody does.
But it happens.
It happens all the time.
We go to court because we can't or we won't figure out how to solve our own problems.
If you love Veronika, then prove it.
Just talk to each other.
And if you can't figure out how to solve this, then neither of you deserve her.
You You really love Veronika.
So do you.
Kate.
Not now, Lauren.
Oh, yesNow.
Don't sit.
This won't take long.
I'm done with your petty crap.
And I'm done with yours.
SoI guess I'll be leaving.
Win-win.
I'll tell you what I told your buddy David Smith.
Teddy's will has been flagged by probate.
How did it end up in probate? You and I have and equal share in this firm.
No, wait, that's incorrect.
I'm the managing partner.
My share is weighted.
Lauren, I don't have the time or the patience to put up with your bull You're fired.
- What? - Oh, now you have the time.
[Cell phone chimes] You want an explanation? All right, well, you're insubordinate, you're petty, you're always late.
And you know what, Kate, I just don't like you.
I'm the Reed of Reed & Reed.
Don't go there, Kate.
I prepared for this moment.
Did you? [Telephone ringing] That's what I thought.
You can't Pack up your office.
Lauren Reed.
Joe, hi.
Yes, good to hear from you too.
David Smith left you a note.
Apparently, he's going somewhere.
- I need a minute.
- Kate, um Hi.
Justin's here.
Hi.
We are going to talk.
We are going to figure out what to do, okay? Yeah.
- The doctor called.
- Okay.
And? When I told you before that I was pregnant, I'd only taken a home test.
And so I called the doctor, just to be sure I'm not pregnant.
Being in a relationship with you, it's it's like Christmas morning.
You know, and you're this kid, and you run under this big, beautiful tree with all these presents underneath.
But as soon as you get there, bombs start to drop.
- I wish - What? Kate, what do you wish? You wish you were different? You wouldn't be you.
It's all tied together.
That's life with Kate Reed Christmas and bombs.
Justin Justin, wait.
I thought you said you wanted to talk.
Yeah.
You know why I came here? I came here to say that we should stay married.
Because I thought we were gonna have a child, so it would have made sense to stay together, right? And now? Kate, you have this passion for people and justice and life, and that's amazing.
You know, when you're warm and you're wonderful you're beautiful, and you're frustrating and you're annoying.
And you're a little crazy.
I spend half my time thinking about how much I love you, and I spend the other half wishing I'd never met you.
Justin.
Kate? I'm going home.
[Trolley bell rings] Hey, Kate.
I just wanted to thank you.
You're a woman of your word.
My bridge is still built.
Yeah, well, you know, that's that's what I do.
I build bridges.
Thank you.
[Knock on door] What? Judge? The Sabbatino brothers They're not coming in.
You killed 'em.
No, um Well, my assistant, Leonardo, he came up with this amazing plan I don't care.

Well, I do have someplace to go.

Always did.
