Marilyn: Happy holidays.
Emilia: Thanks. You too. Nice party.
Marilyn: So far. I'm keeping my eye on the paralegals and the open bar.
Carolyn: Oh, Marilyn, there you are.
Marilyn: Carolyn, happy holidays.
Carolyn: Oh, I have something for you in the den. It's marked. You'll see it. So before you go.
Marilyn: Thank you, Carolyn.
Carolyn: Hello, I'm Carolyn Soule, Jack Woolf's wife.
Marilyn: This is Emilia Greenleaf. She's new.
Emilia: Well, September. Thanks so much for inviting me here.
Carolyn: Oh, well, of course.
Emilia: Marilyn and Carolyn.
Carolyn: That's very good. Well, enjoy yourself.
Emilia: My friend wanted you to be her doctor, but you were all booked. She says you're the best.
Carolyn: Oh, isn't that sweet? I wish it were true.
Emilia: Well, according to the internet.
Marilyn: Well, don't let us keep you, Carolyn.
Carolyn: Yes, don't forget- before you leave.
Marilyn: Thank you, Carolyn. We put in an appearance. I'm heading downtown. You want to share a cab?
Emilia: It's only 10:00.
Marilyn: Well, you know, usually the new people and the support staff leave these things early. Adult swim, so to speak.
Emilia: Well, I'm an associate, so I guess I'm gonna dive in.
Marilyn: Your tickets and itinerary.
Marilyn: Check your email. You're flying to Oakland tomorrow. Discovery production on the Jasper case.
Marilyn: But that's not my case.
Marilyn: It's Jack's. You don't want to go? Talk to him. He's business. You're coach. Policy.
Emilia: Wait, a partner's doing document production?
Marilyn: Exactly. For the plane.
Emilia: So beautiful downtown Oakland, huh? Because of my dad, probably. He didn't make me, but as a judge's daughter, I guess you get to either be a lawyer or a criminal. Pia, my half-sister, is a lawyer too. Common cause.
Jack: Your father was married before?
Emilia: Yeah, then my mother, his secretary. They're divorced now too. But they're friendly enough. I mean, you know, with the grandkids and everything.
Jack: Was that hard for you?
Emilia: I was 22, so, you know...but they're much better off apart. Better for my mother anyway. She gave up everything for him. The good wife.
Jack: Wives were a great thing. Everyone needs one. My wife more than me, maybe. I don't need a wife.
Emilia: I don't even want to get married. I'm practically a guy.
Jack: It doesn't show.
Emilia: This is me. Where are you?
Jack: I'm on the spa level.
Emilia: But that's we passed that on the way up.
Jack: I know. I don't think I can do anything else right now. Is that okay?
Emilia: As long as you don't say that you're married, and you've never done this before, and you're afraid of hurting your wife.
Jack: I'm married. And I've never done this before. And I am afraid of hurting my wife.
Emilia: Who doesn't understand you.
Jack: Good night, Emilia.
Emilia: Good night.
