The Bold Type (2017) s03e09 Episode Script

Final Push

1 Previously, on "The Bold Type" I'm rolling out my spring line soon.
Now, as part of that fashion show, this class is gonna do a little pre-show.
Want to jumpstart your career? - That's where you can do it.
- Adena, hi.
- Kat, hi.
- This is Tia, - my campaign manager.
- Nice to meet you.
Adena talked to Jane.
She said that what happened in Paris was a mistake.
I don't think she's over you, Kat.
- We're doing it.
- The Pamela Dolan story? Doing this piece is gonna put Jacqueline back on top - where she belongs.
- We are gonna bring Pamela - in here and get a statement.
- Here we go.
Yes, here we go.
- Hi.
- Hey, babe.
What a nice surprise.
- What are you doing? - I just finished this, uh, reading, and I thought I would check in with you before my book party tonight.
I am just going over my notes for this Pamela Dolan interview.
- Whoa, wait, is that - Tomorrow.
She's coming into the office to meet with me and Jacqueline.
- It all comes down to this.
- Did I ever tell you that Pamela once stole my cab outside this perfume launch party? Yeah, when I tried to say something, she, like, went ballistic.
Nearly ripped my head off.
It was genuinely frightening.
Is this anecdote supposed to be helping right now? Uh, sorry.
- Just make sure you're ready.
- We are ready for personal threats, legal threats Bomb threats.
Sorry, I, uh I just found out I'm gonna be on NPR tomorrow.
- What? Seriously? - Yeah.
Apparently their booker thinks that I'm the next Jay McInerney.
And you did it without the coke.
- Cheers.
- Thank you.
That's amazing.
- I'm really happy for you.
- And here come my talking points from my publicist.
Uh, I should prep for this.
I don't want to sound like an idiot in front of the National Tote Bag Brigade.
Go.
I have to go over this anyway.
You want to, uh, give me a little send-off - before I go? - Goodbye.
Come on, give me something to work with.
I'm all alone out here.
How about a dance? That sounds amazing.
I will need music.
I'm on it.
- Good work, Charlie.
- All the bad bitches Yeah, that's what I'm talking about.
How about this? Drop it, drop it.
Drop it.
Hi.
- So - Um - Sorry.
- No, you you go.
I owe you an apology, Kat.
You know waiting for my visa to come through was a really tough time for me.
I was starting over again, I wasn't making any money on my own, I couldn't leave the country or or see my family.
And I felt trapped and scared and confused.
I mean, of course I couldn't produce.
And when you called me out in Paris I was so in it that I couldn't see any of that.
You didn't want to do things halfway, and I panicked and I ran.
- I'm really sorry, Kat.
- It's not all on you.
I I made a lot of mistakes.
The whole "open relationship" thing and I just I didn't know what I was doing, and I'm sorry for that, too.
We didn't make things easy for each other, did we? No.
Not really.
You know, looking back, there are a lot of things I would have done differently.
- What? - I wouldn't have ran.
Uh, s-sorry.
Um, election's in 48 hours, so I'm on the clock right now.
I should probably get going.
- I gotta be up really early.
- It's understandable.
If you want to come by the studio or just hang out, be nice to see you again.
I'm really busy right now, but maybe after the election.
Yeah.
I will see you around.
- Bye.
- Okay.
So, everyone, by now you should have all received model contacts for your show, yes? Yes? Good.
Now, of course, you're free to use this space for fittings.
And, um, finally and not that you need reminding, but many of New York's biggest buyers will be in attendance.
Numerous designers have gone through sitting right where you are to having their very own clothing lines, so I would strongly suggest you spend the next few days making sure that you are truly, truly ready.
- We better get to work.
- Yeah, but I have to get to work first.
See ya.
- Bye.
- Then we said goodnight and I buried my feelings in a pint of fro-yo.
- Mm.
- Wow, that's a lot.
- I know.
- Thank you.
But it had dark chocolate chips in it and I just No, I wasn't talking about the fro-yo.
- I was talking about Adena.
- Oh.
She basically said that she wants you back.
Hey, does she even have a gallery opening, or is this just part of a ruse for her to be in the same city as you? Ugh, I don't know.
I'm so confused.
That was literally the opposite of closure.
- Yeah, it was "open-sure.
" - Yes.
Adena nudged the door wide open and Now things are different.
Yes, things are different and I I just I can't focus on this right now because I have an election to win.
Which reminds me, uh, did Ryan mail in his absentee vote? Oh, hey, I saw he's doing an interview with NPR.
- Oh, yeah.
- How does it feel to be dating New York City's hottest new writer? Uh, well, when we actually talk, it feels great.
- But, yeah, I'll remind him.
- Great, 'cause, you know - Every vote counts.
- Yeah, we know.
- Guess what? - What? NY14 is sending a crew to our polling station tomorrow.
You know what that means, right? - I'm gonna be on NY14 again? - Yes, but the race is close.
They wouldn't do that if it wasn't.
- Oh, wow.
- Final push.
It's been the "final push" since we started, though.
Push it hard, ladies, and give birth - to a beautiful electoral child.
- Okay.
Hey, Casey, it's Sutton Brady.
I got your number from Julian Grant.
He said you were gonna be modeling in the show.
Yes, I am at "Scarlet Magazine.
" It's in Midtown.
2:00 p.
m.
is, uh, great.
Okay, see you then.
Red, I apologize in advance but I am - in desperate need of your help.
- That is literally my job.
This isn't your job but Carly's not feeling well and I couldn't find a sitter.
I I know how busy show prep is, but if you could just keep an eye on her for a couple of hours while I run to some meetings She's not contagious, I don't think.
Of course.
Sorry.
Pamela Dolan is here.
- Hello.
- Jacqueline Carlyle.
It's lovely to finally meet you.
I'm surprised it's taken this long.
This is my colleague, Jane Sloan.
I enjoyed your article on egg freezing.
Don't keep them on ice too long.
- I'm just gonna - By all means.
Well, I think we should just, uh, dive right in.
We are doing a feature on your relationship with some of the models that you've worked with over the years, and we just had a few questions to ask you.
Oh, is that why I'm here? Over the course of our reporting we have spoken to five women who have accused you of physical and psychological abuse on set.
The first, Eden Verbrugge Ah, yes, Eden.
Great cheekbones, no work ethic.
I have no comment on that.
You haven't even heard the allegation yet.
I don't need to.
Okay, um, we have another woman, Ingrid Halvorson.
She said that during a shoot in which she was suspended - in mid-air - Again, no comment.
So in regards to the other three women's allegations, - no comment? - Now you're getting the hang of it.
You used to be a big-time war reporter, weren't you? - I was.
- And now, what? You do takedowns of other women - to sell a few more magazines? - I don't do takedowns.
- I just tell the truth.
- How do you sleep at night? We could ask you the same question.
I'm sleeping very well, thank you.
Good luck with your reporting.
I look forward to reading the story when it hits - the newsstands in - Three weeks.
Well, she's lovely.
She definitely has another play.
You got this, Kat.
Hey, Councilwoman.
- Hi, thank you.
- Big election tomorrow.
We're voting for you.
There she is.
You rock, girl! Thank you.
Aww.
- Well, there she is.
- "New York Post" - election primer? - Yes, they say you've mounted a spirited upstart campaign that will come down - to the wire.
- Oh.
Nice to agree with the "Post" for once.
- Proud of you, Kat.
- Thanks.
Even though I will never, ever forgive you for leaving "Scarlet" to do whatever it is - a City Councilwoman does.
- Well, that wouldn't be - for another couple months, so - Kat.
I was just talking to Patrick about potential new social media heads.
- I will have him loop you in.
- Oh, well, I wouldn't take office for another few months.
Well, it might take that long to find someone.
It's not easy to replace family, Kat.
You get to pick the new you.
- Whoop-whoop.
- Yeah.
So we'll just take this in a bit on the sides.
Um, sorry, do you actually mind just putting that down - while I - Oh, sorry.
That's okay.
Thanks.
Okay, and then would you mind slipping on the other dress? - Mm-hmm.
- Great.
- How you doing, Carly? - Head still hurts.
Let me know if I can do anything, okay? All right.
This is still a sample size.
- How is this too big? - I'm on a cleanse.
Gotcha.
Oh, oh, no, no, no.
Sorry.
Carly, uh, this is for a really important shoot.
I just wanted to see how it looked.
I can come back another time if that's easier.
No, it's totally fine.
Carly, would you mind just sitting here and trying not to touch anything? Okay, let's see.
Eden, hi.
Uh, it's Jane.
I was just about to call you.
I got this weird email from a reporter at the "New York Star.
" He wanted to interview me for a story on bad model behavior.
I mean, I'm barely on anyone's radar.
- Why would he reach out? - When was this? Yesterday.
Okay, um, just let me know if they reach out again.
- Okay.
- Thanks, Eden.
Bye.
- Jacqueline, got a sec? - Yeah.
I think we're getting scooped.
- By who? - By the "New York Star.
" I'm guessing Pamela tipped them off herself.
She knew that she couldn't stop us from publishing so she wanted to get ahead of it.
That's why she wasn't worried.
Hold tight.
Okay, while we have a second, let's go over tomorrow's, uh, election-day schedule, which is jam-packed.
- Yep.
- Uh, so, polls open at 6:00, - we are up at 6:00 a.
m.
- Got it.
NY14 interview is at 8:00 a.
m.
- You not feeling these, or - Uh, no.
Not really.
Kat, you know, um, this interview is our last chance to reach undecided voters.
I guess I'm just hoping you're saving your enthusiasm - for the camera, or - Yeah.
Yeah, sorry, I I just I had this conversation with Jacqueline this morning.
She was talking about finding my replacement.
I'm just kind of freaking out a little bit.
Okay, well, save the freak-out for when you win this thing and you're in - your brand-new office.
- Oh.
Whatever fear or anxiety you have nip it in the butt.
You know, this is the last vibe you want to give off when you're on TV and you're asking people - to vote for you.
- Yeah, yeah.
Understood.
- Game face on.
- Cool.
Okay, I'll see you later.
I should start by asking: How much of this - is autobiographical? - You know, I dated a lot, - had a lot of fun.
- Sounds like too much fun.
- Gross.
- Look, I I think there's something gravitational about the allure of being single in New York.
You know, the feeling of leaving your apartment and having no idea where the night'll take you.
It's a high that's hard to stop chasing.
Have you stopped? W-well, I'm in a relationship, so by definition, I have.
- A very clinical answer.
- Hmm.
Hey, everything's a trade-off, right? I I'd be lying if I said a part of me wasn't still attracted to that life.
Yeah, that's not helping my stress.
Here you go.
You guys? Carly is killing me.
I am trying so hard to get ready for this show and she is not helping, and I'm not even sure - that she's actually sick.
- Didn't she used to fake sick when she first moved in with Oliver? She did, but she's in a much better place now.
I can't imagine what it could be.
- Food coma.
- What? Give her a big lunch and then she'll pass out in the conference room.
I've done it many, many times.
I thought that those were power naps.
Maybe they were, maybe they weren't.
- I see.
- Poisoning children.
Truly a new low.
I love it.
Oh, my God.
Is this our last fashion closet before you become a public official? Okay, I'm having a mild case of the "anxiet," so I would love it if we could just calm down.
- Don't jinx it.
- It's not even about that.
- It's more "if I do win.
" - You're gonna win.
- Oh, my God, stop.
- Okay, I have to excuse myself.
I'm getting emotional.
Yeah, I gotta go too.
But, hey, you're gonna kill it.
Thanks.
Oh, really? With the slow turn? I-it's weird.
Leave, please.
Bye.
Hi.
Okay, so, how does a burger and fries and a shake sound? - Filling.
- But good, right? Come on, my treat.
Let's go.
- I'm actually not hungry.
- You have to eat something.
- What about a juice? - No, juice is not food.
- It was for that model.
- Okay.
Carly, is everything okay? - Told you, my stomach hurts.
- I thought it was your head.
Carly.
It's picture day.
That's why I didn't want to go to school.
I don't understand.
It's picture day, and I feel ugly, okay? Oh, Carly, hey.
Let's go for a walk.
We'll talk about it.
Come on.
You were right.
"The Star" is publishing their own Dolan story next week.
It's about how hard it was for her to make it in the male-dominated world of fashion photography.
That isn't an excuse for what she did.
- I mean, the abuse, the NDAs - My guess is she'll downplay the rumors and say that it was just part of her process.
Shame our sources for bad behavior.
She knew that a defensive PR campaign would never work, so she attacked.
Just not the way we thought she would.
This doesn't negate our story.
- We could still get traction.
- Maybe, but if we wait three weeks, we could miss the news cycle completely.
- So what do we do? - We beat her to it.
We publish immediately.
Jacqueline, if we give this to Patrick It'll generate tons of clicks on the dot-com, and it'll give the board another reason to go all-in - with digital.
- So what does this mean for the fall issue? That is a tomorrow problem.
Patrick, call me as soon as you get this.
It's urgent.
Hey, it's Ryan.
Leave me a message - and I'll hit you back.
- Hey, babe, it's me.
Kind of a weird day at the office so I would love to talk.
Also, I heard your interview.
Cool story, bro.
Anyways, uh, just call me when you get this.
Bye.
Between bodies being weird and hormones and mean kids, I mean, seventh grade is not easy.
I get it.
No offense, but do you get it? - What do you mean? - I mean, you're nice and all, but you're tall and thin, and your boyfriend looks like a Ken doll, just like everyone else on Instagram.
Okay.
Here's the thing about Instagram: It's not real life.
And I know it can be hard to remember when you see all these beautiful faces and insane bodies.
But, I mean, even your friends post versions of their lives that aren't real sometimes.
You can't compare yourself to that.
And you're right: I was thin.
But, like, in a super clumsy way.
I also had, like, a lot of acne.
It was It was bad.
But here's the thing: I wouldn't change anything about that girl.
She made me who I am.
I like who I am.
But then I look at everyone else I promise you, everyone else is just as self-conscious as you are.
There are no exceptions.
Believe me when I tell you that half the battle in middle school is showing up, and then remembering that it gets better.
And that you can talk to your Aunt Sutton about anything.
So what time is this photo being taken? In an hour.
But don't you have a lot of work to do? Oh, my God, I have so much work to do.
But I think I can spare a few minutes to be your wingwoman.
- What do you say? - Okay.
- Let's do this.
- Yeah! Come on.
Taxi! Well, it's a concern for me as well.
And when reelected, I promise to help reign in all of the luxury and corporate development that has made this neighborhood - so unaffordable.
- I-is he serious? "Affordable housing"? That's part of the reason - why I ran against him.
- That's a great sign.
Stealing our platform is a great sign? That means our platform's working.
He's panicking.
We're pushing him on the issues - that matter to voters.
- Hmm.
So, tonight we double down.
Reynolds is reactive, Kat is proactive.
Now let's knock on some damn doors.
Earn that champagne tomorrow.
Or two-buck Chuck, based on the amount of money we have left.
Yeah.
Thank you, Tia.
Thank you, everybody.
Last chance to knock on doors.
- Let's make it count.
- Right.
And then I'll see you tonight? Yeah.
Hi.
Hi.
Wow, this is, uh this is a pretty cool spot.
Yeah, it, um, belongs to the gallery owner.
She actually owns the entire building.
Cool.
- Can I get you anything? - Uh, yeah, I could do a glass of wi er, some some tea, please.
So? - What's going on? - Uh, look, I know there's still a lot to, uh unpack between us, and now is not the time to do it, but I just really feel like I need to talk to you as a friend who's really good at helping me see things clearly.
Okay, of course.
Okay, um So, I am kind of freaking out right now.
Uh, in case that wasn't really obvious.
Well, the election is tomorrow, so it makes sense.
Yeah, see, that's what I thought.
But apparently, uh, showing weakness and getting elected don't go together, and I mean of course I I want to help small businesses and I want to help women get access to health care and I want to change the world, but what if I can't? I mean, I'm just a 26-year-old social media director.
What do I really know about being a politician? And then, you know, today I was with Jacqueline and and Jane and Sutton, and it hit me: This is what I lose if I win.
And of course, you know, I do I do want to win, but do I really want to give that up? I don't think you would have gotten this far if you didn't.
It's still a terrible feeling, though.
Oh, wow, I am a terrible person.
So many people busted their asses to get me here and I I can't talk to Tia about it, and and Jane and Sutton have been so busy, and they still find time to help me go canvassing, and I can't just be like, "Oh, yeah, hey, "by the way, guys, I changed my mind.
" So, yeah.
- Hi.
- Come.
I want to show you something.
Okay.
Oh, wow.
- When did you take that? - It was on the same roll I took in Paris.
I didn't have the heart to develop it for a long time.
But when I saw this picture, it it clicked.
You did inspire me, Kat.
With your grace, your fire, your spirit.
And I know that you'll do the same for everyone else when you're elected.
Only you can decide what's best for you right now, but that Kat Edison I know, she is all about growth.
I mean, you were only into boys when, uh, I first met you, and look at you now.
And since we have been apart, you have continued to grow.
And you kept using your voice to fight for the things that matter to you.
And, yeah, if you continue with that, you may have to leave "Scarlet" which is scary.
But I know you can handle it.
If that's what you want.
Yeah, I don't I don't want to run from this.
Good.
Uh, so, I I didn't realize it was so late.
- I should probably head out.
- Yeah, you have - a big day tomorrow.
- Yeah.
There there's an election party tomorrow.
If you want to come it could be fun.
- Could be terrible.
- Yeah, I'll be there.
Okay.
- Bye.
- Bye.
So this is what you've been working on instead of losing - to me in Forza? - Uh, I think you might be confused.
- What do you think? - I think you're about to blow up.
It's a classic J and J joint.
I just made that up.
Not bad, right? - It's okay.
- Oh.
Ryan.
- Should I take this? - No.
- You sure? - Hand it over.
- Hi.
- Hey, Jane, hi.
- Can you hear me? - Yeah, it's a little loud.
Yeah, um, what's up? How's it going? How are you? I'm okay.
How are you? Also okay, yeah.
Um, I miss you.
Really? 'Cause I couldn't tell from that radio interview - you did.
- Oh, come on, Jane.
Don't do that.
I'm You know what I'm doing? I'm out there just trying to sell books.
I'm not being real.
You know I feel about you, right? - Are you drunk? - I've, uh I've had a couple.
Um, but I was calling 'cause I just wanted to hear your voice, I guess.
That's sweet.
- Is everything okay? - Yeah, yeah.
Everything is great.
Um I'll call you tomorrow, okay? - I miss you.
- You mentioned that.
Right.
Okay, bye.
Bye.
Hey, babe.
Hey.
Mm.
- You gonna be here a while? - Yeah, it's looking like it.
- You headed home? - Nope.
Nope, I'm gonna meet Dev for drinks.
He's got something top secret to talk to me about.
Ah, well, as long as it has nothing to do with Connecticut.
- I'll see you at home.
- Okay.
Actually, whatever happened - with adventures in babysitting? - Get this: Carly was not sick.
She just didn't want to go to school because she didn't - want to get her picture taken.
- Mm.
She also called you a Ken doll.
Well, that's ridiculous.
He doesn't have a penis.
God, she really broke my heart.
But I gave her a pep-talk, and I convinced her - to go back to school.
- That's really sweet.
- I know how busy you are.
- I just can't imagine what it's like for her, scrolling through Instagram and seeing all those models drinking detox tea.
- What? - I just got an idea.
- Hello.
- Hey, how are you? - I'm good, how are you? - Good.
Very good.
We're just gonna finish setting up.
We'll be with you soon.
- Okay.
- See you in a bit.
Bye.
- Hello.
- Hi.
- So I have something for you.
- Oh.
- Hold out your wrist.
- Okay.
Bam! - Whoa! - I handed out those bad boys when I ran for Class Treasurer senior year.
- Oh.
- It was a landslide victory.
- I thought I'd pass it on.
- It's very retro.
- Yes.
- Still smells like Hollister.
That was my signature scent.
Hey, um, I'm just confused, though, 'cause I'm wondering where the ballot measure is for Beyoncé's birthday - being a national holiday.
- Oh, that comes after I win.
- You've got my vote.
- Mm-hmm.
Also, um, how was last night with Adena? It's probably not the best time.
Right, right, right.
- But do you think that - Ready? - Yeah.
- Let's do it.
Okay, I'll see you guys at the party.
Mm-hmm.
- Okay, bye.
Hey, Cole.
Why are you giving this to me? - We were scooped.
- Oh.
Dolan has a competing story running on Monday, so we need this out there immediately.
It's already been fact-checked and vetted by legal.
I will have art send over the images from our photo shoot ASAP, and loop in social to make sure - that the rollout is wide.
- Okay, I'll, uh, get PR to coordinate media and TV requests.
You guys did truly amazing work.
I am honored to be publishing this.
- Wow.
- He's gonna take this and run with it, isn't he? We're doing the right thing, Jane.
I know.
You guys look great.
I'm gonna be right back.
- Okay.
- Sounds good.
- Hey, have you seen Jane? - Uh, I think - she's at the bar.
- All right, thanks.
- Hey.
- Hey.
- Any word from Ryan? - Actually, I was just checking to see if the Dolan story was up, but no.
- Oh, hey.
- Hey.
Oh, well if it isn't the Councilwoman Elect.
- It me.
- How you feeling? I feel good, you know? Polls closed 20 minutes ago, I did everything I could, so I need a drink.
- Or two.
- Well, maybe save the second one for after the speech.
Actually, you can have as many as you want after the speech.
You've definitely earned it.
- Oh, sorry, be right back.
- Okay.
- Okay, spill it.
- I don't I don't know.
Tia's amazing.
I mean, look around.
I'm here because of her.
But I am also here because of Adena.
I just can't get her out of my head.
- And she might swing by later.
- Does Tia know? - Yeah, it's not a big deal.
- Oh.
You guys, it's posted.
- The story is up.
- So proud of you.
Yeah.
- Oh.
- Yeah, it's it's still a little weird to not see it in "Scarlet," but I'm just really happy that it's out there.
Well, I know it's not the way you imagined it - but it's still pretty amazing.
- Yeah.
- Yeah.
- Anyways, tonight - is your night.
- Ugh, no.
It's our night.
And before my life maybe changes forever I just want to say thank you.
Well, your life may change, but this won't.
Your clothing will continue to get worse, though.
Occupational hazard.
- Hey, speaking of clothing - Yeah? How do you guys feel about walking in my fashion show? I thought you were getting professional models? That was the plan, but then after everything with Carly, I I don't know.
It just didn't feel right.
I don't want to make clothing that only fits models.
I want to make clothing - that fits everybody.
- Well, in that case, I'm down.
- Yeah, I'm also down.
- Yay! - Should we get that one drink? - Mm-hmm.
Let's do it.
Oh, my God.
Ryan's here.
That's why he was MIA.
He wanted to surprise you.
I'll take it.
- Oh, my God, hi.
- Hi.
I can't believe this.
What a surprise.
Yeah, well, Princeton's not that far away.
I saw that your article was up.
- I'm really proud of you.
- Thanks.
But come on, we'll talk work later.
Tonight we're celebrating Kat.
I'm really happy you're here.
Well, if it isn't my two favorite men - side-by-side.
- Oh.
Well, I won't make you rank us.
I was just telling your boyfriend what a lifesaver you are.
Oh, she's amazing.
Okay, I'm not a woman even though gender is a social construct and I can rock a fresh beat in a high pump at a moment's notice I am not a woman, and Carly needs strong women in her life.
Thank you for being there for her.
It was my pleasure.
Oh.
Oh, gotta take this.
- I'll be right back.
- Okay.
- Can I see it again? - Of course.
- Hey, guys.
- Hi.
So we have a very special literary guest here for one night only.
Jane, you don't have to do that.
So when am I gonna get my signed copy? - Oh, he charges for that now.
- You know, I haven't read it yet, but I did give it a five-star rating on Amazon, so hoping for, you know, a discount.
I read it, loved it, and will totally pay for a signature.
Oh, my God, guys, look.
- Oh, we have to find Kat.
- Uh, yeah, we do.
Uh, Jane.
- Can I talk to you for a second? - Yeah.
Okay.
- What's going on? - I have to tell you about something.
Okay.
Something happened on tour.
What do you mean? I screwed up.
Last night, I was drunk.
Uh, I was actually really, really drunk, and I kissed somebody else.
- Last night? - It didn't mean anything.
I swear.
So that's why you missed me so much, huh? I know how bad it looks or sounds.
Yeah.
You haven't even been gone that long.
I know.
I don't have any excuse other than the fact that I was drunk, but I you have to know that as soon as it happened I I knew it was a mistake and I stopped it.
It didn't mean anything.
Jane, I'm so, so sorry.
Wow, I wish that I heard that interview sooner.
Would have saved us a lot of time.
- Hey, can we just talk? - I can't I can't do this right now.
Don't.
- Don't touch me.
- Please And don't follow me, either.
Is this a good time to go to the bathroom? - Mom.
- I don't want - to miss anything.
- Yeah, okay.
Yes, I think you're okay.
Just hurry.
- Yeah.
- All right.
- Hey.
- Oh, I already had my one.
Eh, nurse it.

- Hello.
- Incredible.
- Posting that.
- Thank you, Patrick.
- Tagging you! - Thank you! - Oh, this waiting is killing me.
- Yeah, any minute now it'll all be over.
Unless it's a recount, which let's pray that doesn't happen.
Win or lose, Kat, I am so proud of you.
- You kicked ass.
- Oh we kicked ass.
- Yeah, we're a good team.
- Mm-hmm.
It'll be kind of nice when this is over.
We can, um, figure this out.

Are you sure everything's okay? Yeah, yeah, definitely.
Out with it.
Fine.
You remember how Dev's been trying to get me to talk about this work thing he's got going? - Mm-hmm.
- Turns out he got a bunch of seed money to start a V.
C.
shop that invests in clean energy, and he wants me to help him run it.
Oh, my God.
