The Bold Type (2017) s01e09 Episode Script

Before Tequila Sunrise

1 Female narrator: There's changes afoot at "Scarlet," so let's catch up with our favorite young throuple.
Jane set aside her political agenda to try her hand at clickbait - That interests you? - Yes, I'm very interested in a butt facial.
Narrator: And caught something unexpected.
We don't want you to just be an "Incite" writer.
We want you to be Jane Sloan.
Narrator: Sutton learned at crunch time that she can always count on herself.
Yes, so fierce.
Okay, let's step you in.
Narrator: Helpful, given her romantic status.
This isn't gonna work, is it? So what are we deciding here? Narrator: And Kat tried to be long-distance friends with Adena, but in the end they realized they didn't want to be long-distance, and they definitely didn't want to be just friends.
What if I were to book a ticket - to return to New York? - What? Narrator: So come travel with us on "The Bold Type.
" [all laughing.]
[upbeat rock music.]
We're officially late.
I'm gonna miss the pitch meeting.
How many times does Trump have to come back here? Doesn't he live somewhere else now? Yeah, Mar-a-Lago.
How's the pro/con list coming? It's a pro/pro list.
In this column is all the reasons to stay at "Scarlet," and in this column is all the reasons to go to "Incite.
" - You're not going to "Incite.
" - Yeah, but I might.
I mean, look at this pro list.
It's a super sexy startup, it's well-funded, and there's no patriarchy upstairs telling us what we can and can't cover.
I have to give them an answer by tomorrow, and I don't know what I'm gonna do.
- It's tied.
- Oh, I could help with that.
"Work with best" - [laughs.]
- "friends.
" - [tires squealing, horns honking.]
- Oh! - Sorry.
- Do you think that's a sign? That Sutton needs to quit primping - before she takes out an eye? - [laughs.]
Okay, we're gonna let the universe decide.
If the cab goes left at 34th, then that means that I stay at "Scarlet," and if it goes right, then that means I go to "Incite.
" [siren blipping.]
[phone chimes.]
- [gasps.]
Oh, my God.
- What? - What happened? - She's over Boston.
Adena's plane should land within the hour.
I'm so happy at least one of us is killing it - in the dating department.
- Oh, hey, look, - we're almost there.
- My fate is in the hands - of the universe.
- Left, left, left.
[tires squeal.]
Sir, what is this? Why aren't we moving? [horns and sirens blaring, people shouting.]
Presidential motorcade.
Oh, my God.
What does this mean? That you're not going anywhere.
Sir, is there anything you could do? Hang on, ladies.
I'll get you there on time if you tip me.
Aah! Oh, my God, oh, my God.
No, she don't mess around [dynamic music.]
- Good morning, Jacqueline.
- Thank you.
Andrew, tell Miranda that if she can't move that preview, I will have to conference in from the sidelines of my son's basketball game, which I will absolutely do if necessary.
Uh, the coach didn't really appreciate that last time.
Then let's get it moved.
Thank you! - Did everyone quit? - They're all running late - because of the road closures.
- Of course.
Nevertheless, we will persist.
I refuse to cancel a pitch meeting on account of that man.
Jane, you first.
Nothing political this time.
We have that covered with the feature piece - that Ella's doing.
- Okay, um Oh, here it is.
Gucci, St.
Laurent, and Burberry have all been experimenting with the concept of genderless fashion - in their recent runways.
- And we've covered it.
With Tilda Swinton and Jaden Smith, but genderless fashion isn't just for models and the celeb elite.
Retailers have been marketing to everyday consumers like you and - I'm not an everyday consumer.
- Right but I am, so I thought that I could just spend a day in genderless clothes, see if that makes people interact with me differently.
I would wear androgynous suits, - drop-crotch floral pants, and - Stop right there.
You had me at "drop-crotch floral pants," but we need something more.
Women have been donning menswear for decades and calling it subversive, you know? We need that extra layer.
Sorry, they shut down my stop, so I had to detour through Midtown, and then And in walks our extra layer.
- I'm sorry? - I really like your concept, Jane, but we need the right man for the job.
- [stammering.]
Wait, what? - Yeah, what? Jane'll tell you about the assignment.
Let's get you doing the "Red Check" this issue.
The monthly quiz? You've got a problem with that? Nope, no problem.
[mellow pop music.]
So, guess what? Jacqueline took my pitch and gave it to Alex.
The intersectional feminism thing? No, I didn't even get to pitch that one.
Now, instead, I'm writing the monthly quiz.
This is going in your pro-"Incite" column, - isn't it? - There's not a lot of political real estate here, so yeah, it's something to think about.
Hey, which one did Alex take? This androgynous fashion piece.
I wasn't even that excited about it, but it was still my pitch.
[phone chimes.]
It's Pinstripe Guy.
Oh, you're just not gonna respond? - Our chapter's closed.
- He wants coffee, not relationship counseling.
- Wh Sutton, don't.
- Oh, my God.
- Stop it, stop ooh! [laughs.]
- You stop! [laughs.]
- - Ooh, now I'm really curious.
- Hey.
- Hey.
Uh I was surprised to hear from you.
It's been a while.
- Yeah.
- What's up? I just wanted to say good-bye.
Good-bye? What? You won't be running into this guy in the elevator anymore.
No more coffee shop banter, 'cause I just got fired.
- What? - Yup.
"Pinstripe's" downsizing? Yeah, over half the editorial staff.
- I'm so sorry.
- Thanks.
I'm still kind of in shock, but I wanted to tell you that I liked sharing a lobby with you, Jane Sloan.
I'll miss seeing you around.
Yeah, I'll miss seeing you too.
[mellow music.]
Put that away.
- Good luck.
- Thanks.
I've got to go, uh empty out my desk.
Jane told me that you stole her fashion story.
I did the opposite of stealing it, and I'd like to give it back, so if you're her hired muscle I'm actually here to pitch myself as your stylist.
I love it, but what about Jane? She makes her own decisions, as do I, so hear me out, and don't just give me a shot because we're friends.
- Okay.
- Or do, because friendship is very important in business.
Pitch me, Sutton.
What do you got? So I'm thinking something accessible, but still strong.
You want to put me in a dress? I want a solo styling credit in the magazine.
Putting you in a dress is a bonus.
Oh, do you want to take that? Oh.
I don't know what he wants.
Anyway, feel free to ask someone else, but Oliver's really busy, and this would be a great shot for me.
I would work really hard.
- You got it.
- Seriously? - Show me what you got.
- Yes! Okay, I have to show you the rest of the stuff.
[mellow electronic music.]
[phone vibrating.]
I've been following your flight.
- Kat? - Are you on your way over? 'Cause I can leave early.
I made us reservations No, Kat, there's a problem.
I'm being held here at customs.
They won't let me into the country.
- What? - They're putting me on a flight home tomorrow, first one out.
Wait, they're sending you back to France? No, they can't do that.
Not France, home.
Oh, my God.
[solemn music.]
Um, I can't be on the phone.
Kat, I'm I just want to say I'm sorry, and I tried.
Adena, just tell me where you are so that I can You guys will not believe what happened to Pinstripe.
[solemn music.]
- What, what's going on? - They won't let Adena - into the country.
- Yeah, she's She's not picking up, so Do you think they took her phone? Like, can they do that? I think they can do whatever they want.
Okay, how can we help? I I don't know.
[inhales shakily.]
I don't know.
Hello, you've reached the Immigrant Rights Hotline, serving all of New York State.
Our current call volume is extremely high.
Please hold, and we'll be with you as soon as we're able [phone beeps.]
- Hi, Victoria.
- Jane, am I catching you - at a bad time? - No yes.
I'm sorry I'm just helping a friend - with some immigration issues.
- I'm truly sorry to hear that.
Look, I'll be fast.
I know you haven't made your decision yet, but we're getting down - to the wire here.
- I understand, and I really want to give you an answer.
- I just - Listen, I get it.
You have a lot of loyalty to "Scarlet.
" I love that about you.
I'm emailing a few of our upcoming pieces, which include an evisceration of this administration's immigration policy.
If they excite you, then I will expect to hear - good news from you tomorrow.
- Deal.
And stay indoors today if you can, because the president has things totally screwed up out here.
Thank you, Victoria, um Talk soon.
[phone beeps.]
- Hello? - [speaking Spanish.]
Okay, great, thank you so much.
So that was Legal Aid.
They're gonna contact the authorities directly and see if they can put the brakes on Adena's deportation.
- Okay, thanks.
- So, any luck? - Have you heard anything? - Nothing.
Well, I just got off with the Immigrant Rights Hotline, and they said that customs doesn't need to give Adena - a reason to turn her away.
- Wish I could just talk to her.
She's gonna call you as soon as she can.
Yeah, when she gets home, a home that isn't exactly super friendly to her.
God, just call me.
I need to know that you're okay.
I need to know she's okay.
- What are you doing? - I'm buying a ticket.
- What? - To where? It's the only way to get through security and into the terminal, and maybe I can see her.
Look, Air Nazar.
There's a flight out tomorrow morning, and that has to be the flight - that they put her on.
- Let's just take a breath.
I don't have a breath, Jane.
I have 14 hours, and there's only one ticket left, so if you want a sign, that's a sign.
That's not a sign.
That's a first-class ticket for just $11,000.
$11,000? My parents have a bunch of points that they never use, so I'll just, you know, empty their account.
This is crazy.
Okay, I got to go pick up my passport.
- You are insane.
- But really, really romantic.
I love you.
Good luck.
- Love you.
- Love you too.
[electronic music.]
And if you're not feeling any of this, I do have a few pieces coming in from a boutique designer.
- Seriously? - You have to keep an open mind.
This is the same as when Jane had to try on all of those Spanx at once, or when Sage had to figure out how to make under-boob work appropriate.
Okay, I'm getting a little nervous about this.
Good, you should be.
The response I was hoping for was, "Don't worry, Alex.
You can trust me.
" Oh, you can.
Protestors: No more Trump! No more Trump! [all shouting.]
[distant shouting of protestors.]
- [clears throat.]
- What's this? Oh, hey, avert your eyes.
You weren't supposed to see me like this.
With what I can only assume is stolen stationery, a thing that looks like a sex toy, and lube samples? I know, I'm hideous.
I really am sorry about your job.
No, we're not doing this.
We've already had our tearful good-bye.
I don't remember crying.
- You were devastated.
- [chuckles.]
[protestors chanting.]
- What is going on? - Yes, some of us have plans to drink alone tonight.
The president's having dinner next door, and there are protesters, so the Secret Service shut down the block.
I guess we go back up and wait it out? Yeah.
[solemn music.]
- This way.
- Okay oh, okay.
[indistinct conversations.]
Adena! Kat? I can't believe I found you.
What are you doing here? They confiscated my phone, or I would have called you back.
Oh, no, that's okay.
I'm just trying to figure out what's going on, like So basically, I haven't received the extension of my work visa yet, so I thought that it was best for me to enter as a visitor.
- Right.
- But I guess I got flagged because I only have a one-way ticket and no residence elsewhere, so I could just decide to stay in the U.
And your visa application? Could actually be revoked now.
I knew it was a risk but I took it.
Just so stupid.
This is just a temporary obstacle.
So, you'll go home.
We'll get you a crazy-amazing lawyer, and we'll figure it out.
You think so? Yeah.
But hey.
- Hey, Adena.
- [sniffs.]
I just want you to know that I'm here.
I'm in this with you.
Hey, Sutton.
I saw you called.
I'm calling you back.
Take care.
- Hey, hi.
- Hi, Sutton.
- What's up? - No one can leave the building.
- Because - Trump.
So vodka? I'm in.
- [giggles.]
- I was promised vodka.
It's vodka-based.
The unicorn dreamtini is "Scarlet's" official cocktail - of fall.
- You're kidding.
- She's not.
- So, what are we drinking to? To new opportunities.
And leaving old jobs behind.
- Wait, you're taking it? - Taking what? He doesn't know about that yet.
I don't know about what yet? So what were you talking about, new opportunities? I think she was trying to make me feel better about the fact that I just got fired.
Bottoms up.
I'm sorry.
Well, that tastes exactly the way it looks.
- Mm.
- What are you two - talking about? - I got a job offer at "Incite.
" You got the "Incite" job? I was gonna tell you but I don't even know if I'm taking it.
[tense music.]
Dreamtini? [phone chimes.]
[phone beeps.]
- - - Everything okay? - Yeah.
Mm, that's sweet they're concerned.
I just don't want to worry them, you know? Get a million calls and texts.
I don't really feel like being on my phone right now.
You know, we still have ten hours left.
- Yeah, not a lot of time.
- It's not nothing.
[upbeat electronic music.]
You know what? Adena El-Amin, will you go on a date with me? - Yes.
- [gasps, giggles.]
- I thought you would never ask.
- All right Sorry, I was surprised before, but congrats, by the way, on "Incite.
" I see big things for you.
Hey, I'm really sorry.
I should have told you.
Eh, it's not personal.
It's business.
- It's both.
- Well, besides, it turns out I'm actually happy where I am.
Stuck in the Steinem Building with a cheap bottle of tequila? Exactly.
Here, take these.
[inhales sharply.]
Smart man.
Sutton found a deck of cards.
- Do you want to join us? - Maybe later.
But don't let her shuffle.
She cheats.
I knew it.
Sutton, a word, please.
Yes yes.
- Please don't jump.
- Well, I wasn't going to, - but now that you mention it - [laughs.]
My take on a tequila sunrise.
My dad's favorite.
- Cheers.
- Cheers.
[music playing distantly.]
See? Isn't this so much better than drinking alone? It's like bizarro world up here.
We have the exact same view from our conference room or "Pinstripe's" conference room.
Speaking of which, is Scarlet Girl really leaving "Scarlet?" Kind of feels like the universe is trying to keep me here.
Well, forget about the universe.
What does your pro/con list tell you? What makes you so sure that I have a pro/con list? I know you.
Come on, let's see it.
You don't know me at all.
It's a pro/pro list.
I don't want you or Jane to leave.
- I'm not going anywhere.
- Not by choice.
- Oh, okay, okay.
- Burn.
- Sorry.
- I have made my peace.
You know, I remember - when you first started.
- You do? It was really hard not to notice the khakis.
Oh, aces trump jacks.
- You just said the no-no word.
- Oh, man.
- Take a drink.
- Touché.
- Ah.
- Ugh.
You were so serious back then, I told Jane I didn't think - you would last six months.
- Uh, thank you very much? Well, I was wrong.
What was your first impression of me? - That you were stuck up.
- What? - You asked.
- I'm not stuck up.
I would say good morning to you, and you would barely look up from this desk.
- I was busy and tortured.
- And judging my khakis.
Always judging the khakis.
So what would happen if we got you out of them? [music playing distantly.]
Looks like "Incite" has pulled ahead.
It's still a work in progress.
Jane, you could fill this whole notebook up with pros about "Incite.
" "Scarlet" is what you know.
It's what you love.
Yeah, which means it's safe.
Well, I don't mean it in a bad way.
"Incite" is a risk.
It's the unknown.
Not exactly your two favorite things.
Okay well, let's just remember who kissed who.
See, that's what I'm talking about.
When you do take a risk, it seems to pay off.
You've scored political exclusives, - first orgasms - [laughs.]
[gentle piano music.]
Do you ever wonder if this could have worked? Hey, guys! I think we can see Trump.
Yeah, I'm gonna take you out for dinner.
Somewhere really fancy, like, uh - [in accent.]
- Oh! [in French accent.]
Or Cinnabon.
- Oof.
- The night is ours.
- How romantic.
- [laughs.]
- Oh, no, everything is closed.
- It's okay.
- I'm really not that hungry.
- I said I would take you out on a date and I'm gonna take you out on a date.
Come on.
[upbeat music.]
[both laughing.]
[indistinct shouting from below.]
- What exactly am I looking for? - Alex said he saw a small orange blur.
I said I thought I saw the motorcade.
Same thing.
I think we should go back to the conference room.
It's on the other side of the building.
We're not even gonna be able to see anything.
She's intimidated by this office.
No, I'm not.
I just respect its sanctity.
You know what I want? One of these.
Okay, please don't change the settings.
- [blows raspberry.]
- Jane, come here.
You want to figure out if you should stay at "Scarlet?" Well, have a seat.
What? No.
- Not until I've earned it.
- How do you know you really want it if you haven't tried it? Come on, imagine that all of this is yours.
You've worked hard.
You've risen up through the ranks under the guidance of Jacqueline Carlyle.
Now, take your rightful place as editor-in-chief.
- How does it feel? - Mm, feels pretty good.
[both laugh.]
Hello, everyone.
[gasps, shouts.]
Jacqueline, we're, uh, stuck in the building.
Yes, as am I.
I was just upstairs with the board while you were all down here, apparently making yourselves at home in my office.
- We didn't know you were here.
- [stammers.]
We were just - looking at Trump.
- Why don't you just [clicks tongue.]
get out? - Yeah.
- Yeah.
[up-tempo music.]
- Andrew! - Here! Okay, now we can have our date.
Well, this is certainly an upgrade from Sbarro.
First class, baby.
You know, in all my travels I never flew first class? - Really? - Once, actually, I sat on a plastic folding chair taped to the floor.
I don't think it was entirely legal.
- Well, sounds exciting, though.
- More like death-defying, but we landed in one piece.
So exactly how many countries have you actually visited? [chuckles.]
Oh Oh, wow, you added pages? I didn't even know - you could do that.
- I left home very young.
- 17.
- [gasps.]
I couldn't even do my own laundry when I was 17.
[both laughing.]
You know, everywhere I go, I discover something new about myself.
Amsterdam was where I first fell in love with a woman.
South Africa was where I discovered the power of portrait photography.
Everything you want to know about me is in those pages.
I haven't done anything.
I've just spent my entire adult life in one city.
But you had something I didn't have - stability.
- Mm.
You know, I am very grateful for all my experiences, but I feel I'm ready to stay still for a minute to build a home.
Although, I do not know where that will be now.
[solemn music.]
- Shall we eat? - That's what I brought you here for, our date.
What would you like? Let me get it for you.
- What do you need? - I'd like to start with dessert.
[phone vibrating.]
You know, tequila really does taste better the second time down.
I'll have to take your word for it.
Hey, so do you think I'm risk-averse? Definitely.
Why? Oh, it was just something Pinstripe said.
He thinks you're being risk-averse to the job? No, about what happened with him, but that's not true.
Just whatever we had ran its course.
- Right? - That's one way to put it.
Another is: you broke up with him before you could give it a chance and see where it went.
Richard called me.
- Why? - He's calling me back.
It was such a polite voicemail.
I don't know why I called him.
Yeah, you do.
I loved him, and I never told him.
If it was meant to be, do you think it would be this hard? Let the genderless fashion show begin.
Ooh! You guys look amazing.
What you gotta do, what you gotta say Oh, this has to come out.
What do you mean? The sling is in.
It's out.
How is this happening, Marcel? How many courses can he eat? Well, he sent the steaks back because what he really wants is a burger.
It's your restaurant.
Send over the check.
[pop music playing.]
Marcel, Marcel Marcel! We all need to get on with our lives.
[Mandisa's "What You're Worth" playing.]
- Y gah.
- You got a fire So let it burn on Show 'em what you're worth, show 'em what you're worth Show 'em whatcha, show em what you're worth Show 'em what you're worth, you gotta roar Oh, here's a useful one: "How to Tell if He Wants to Have a Threesome.
" The answer is yes.
- "With Another Dude.
" - Okay.
So, okay, this is your assignment? You have to write one of these quizzes? Well, someone's got to do it, and this month it's my turn.
All right, well, let's see what we got.
"Are You Too Obsessed with Your Ex?" - Next drink.
- Why, what did I do? - Just drink.
- Okay.
Moving right along: "What Does Your Netflix Queue - Say About Your Love Life?" - Hmm.
"Is your queue mostly A, fun sitcoms, "B, home renovation shows, or C, serial killer documentaries and prison dramas?" - C, and that means I am a - Killer in the bedroom.
- Very nice.
- [all laughing.]
Well, I wrote the quiz, so I stacked the answers.
- [all laughing.]
- Okay, mine would - be home renovation shows.
- That means that you, Jane, are a "restless romantic.
You're always looking to upgrade your life, even when it may not need it.
" - That's scary.
- Nothing personal, of course.
No, it's fine, and I think I found a pitch for my quiz.
"How Do You Know When It's Time to Move on from Your Job?" - Easy, they fire you, right? - Ooh.
- Too soon? - Your friends are mean.
- You drink.
- [laughs.]
No, but seriously, let's write this.
I'm gonna let this quiz decide my fate.
Where's my - What? - Oh, my God.
- What? - My notebook.
Ah you're on, like, a nine.
I'm gonna need you to come down to a four.
I think I left it in Jacqueline's office.
- Are you sure? - No, I don't [tense music.]
- So what? - It was open to my list.
So what's the plan, Slim? Okay, so we are just gonna do a super casual walk-by, peek in, and just see if it's there.
- Let's do it.
- But, um - be casual.
- Oh, yeah, totally.
We're super casual.
We're just two people, out for a walk in an office, drunk, wearing gender neutral clothing.
- She'll never see it coming.
- [laughing.]
We need to talk.
So, how do you like your outfit? Well, I don't feel like myself, but that's not always such a bad thing.
I'm afraid I have some bad news.
It turns out that number 45 has ordered a soufflé to go along with his two scoops of ice cream, - which has an hour prep time.
- [sighs.]
So, anyone want a Scotch? Yeah.
- [camera clicks.]
- Hey! Hey.
I wasn't ready.
You know, I'm thinking about starting a new photo series.
Oh, really? Is this a follow up - to "The Woman Behind the Veil?" - Yes.
The working title is "The Woman Inside the Pillow Fort.
" - Oh! - [both laughing.]
You know, I like our pillow fort.
Maybe you could make this your home.
- I have lived in worse places.
- Mm.
You know, this reminds me of growing up.
I think every kid builds forts.
It's a a rite of passage.
No, not really the fort.
It's the quiet.
'Cause it was always just me and my shrink parents, and we never even fought.
If anyone was pissed off about something, we would sit down at the dining room table, and we would talk it out for hours.
- That sounds very - Evolved.
- Yes, it was.
- Civilized.
Yeah, I hated it.
God, I was so bored.
So I I moved to New York, because I wanted dirt and imperfection and really cheap hot dogs.
- You came to the right place.
- Yeah.
Okay, this is me.
- Mm.
- It's almost empty.
[solemn music.]
That just means there's more room for possibility.
- Sure.
- With an American passport, you could do anything.
Yeah, that's what I want to do.
Adena, I know that you said that you're tired of adventure and everything, but I've never had one.
And I already have the plane ticket, so what if I just went with you? [tense electronic music.]
This is fun.
Now, what were you guys doing before? I heard laughter in here.
Um Not a trick question.
[all laughing.]
They were just helping me with my quiz.
Oh, yeah, she came up with a really good one: "How to Tell When It's Time to Move on from Your Job.
" I-I don't think that was a good idea, though.
Well, it is a good one.
Did you come up with some questions? - Did we? - We didn't really get that far.
Well, let's do it now, all of us.
- Fun.
- Somebody grab a notepad.
- Yeah, I have a notepad.
- All right.
Anybody, a first question? Uh, hmm - Jane? - I was thinking that, um maybe it's time to move on from your job when you feel like you've learned everything that you can.
Or if your employer doesn't give you adequate opportunities for growth.
That would be a strong indication.
- Let me write that down.
- Sorry to interrupt.
Building's clear, and you can all go home.
- What a relief.
- Hoorah.
Thank you.
Thank you, Frank.
Well, that was fun.
See you all tomorrow.
[solemn music.]
I could always just work remotely or drum up freelance gigs, or just not work at all, you know, see the country.
I can't believe we're talking about this.
- [laughs.]
- Are we talking about this? - Yeah, why not? - Your friends, your home - everything is here.
- It'll be here when I get back.
Or it won't.
I don't care.
- You might care later.
- No, I don't feel like being logical right now.
I feel like I feel like I want to get out of here.
I I could be your personal tour guide.
I would show you the most incredible places.
Yeah, and you could teach me the language.
Like, how do you say, um "What is the Wi-Fi password?" in Persian? This is very important.
[speaking Persian.]
I feel like that wasn't "What is the Wi-Fi password?" was it? [speaking Persian.]
What's that one? You are so beautiful.
Hey, where do you want us to put these? Oh, you can just leave them.
I'll put them away.
- Great, thank you.
- Are you sure you don't need any help? I could stay.
- No, I'm good go.
- Okay, bye.
- Bye.
- Goodnight.
Have a good night, Andrew.
Well, that was exciting.
Yeah, yes, it was.
- Thank you for giving me refuge.
- Well, I am glad we could help.
[elevator bell dings.]
Ryan, do you think you could go on ahead? I just want to have a quick word with Jane.
I know you're frustrated that I assigned you the quiz.
No I-I wasn't excited about it, but And I have been thinking about that idea you floated how to know when it is time to move on from your job.
And that is a very important question.
When I was considering taking this job at "Scarlet," it was a very different magazine much more conservative, set in its ways, and I knew it was an incredible risk to come in and shift its identity.
I could fail spectacularly, and I almost didn't take the job because of that, but looking back, that's exactly why it was the right decision.
Because it was the one that scared the shit out of me.
I will be sure to work that into the quiz.
[elevator bell dings.]
[solemn music.]
- You're still here.
- Yeah, I'm surprised no one's brought me another dreamtini by now.
I don't think you need another.
- I probably don't.
- [laughs.]
So, did she find your notebook? I have absolutely no idea.
Well, it probably won't make a difference either way if you leave.
What are you gonna do about "Incite?" - I have absolutely no idea.
- Well, let me know when you make up your mind.
Wait, Ryan? Why did you call me when you found out about your job? You know why.
Don't over-think it, Jane.
Well, I'll say this much: You have the legs - for a skirt, my friend.
- Hey, my butt looks good - in that skirt.
- Agreed.
- Yes, you do.
- I will take the next one.
This chariot is yours, madam.
- For me? - Mm-hmm.
Thank you.
