Patti is in the office and discovering that the bakery now demands COD, they can’t afford the deluxe spread, and Eli has left her to pick up the tab. Meanwhile, Eli calls the staff meeting to order once he realizes that the half-empty room is all the staff he has. Comparing notes, they realize that Posner & Klein has acquired several candidates they were just about ready to sign. Eli explains that they are hoping to get Jim Cooper, a billionaire philanthropist, to sign on with Weathersby & Stone. At Posner & Klein, the new team are celebrating how many clients they’ve signed and Matt explains they’ve made a substantial donation to Cooper’s MS research foundation and he may be signing with them...Read the full recap
Eli: As you pointed out, sir, some of our people are in contact with their people, so some cross-pollination is bound to occur.
Taylor: I’m not pollinating anything with Matt.
Eli: I didn’t say you were. I was just trying to imply that you are pillow-talking our business plan with him.
Taylor: I am not the leak, Eli, and to prove it, I’m gonna found out who it is. Happy?
Jordan: Your management skills are as deft as ever.
Eli: Posner & Klein can kiss my hundred-grand-a-week retainer ass!
Eli: That’s how we do things downtown! Sorry.
Jordan: Quite all right. If I were more prone to outbursts of emotions, I’d probably be doing a little jig.
Eli: That I would pay real money to see.
Keith: But I think it’s best if we go with someone outside the office with this. So, uh, I’ll give my old colleague Danny Meyer a call.
Patti: And this Danny character--where does he live?
Keith: I don’t know. What’s it matter?
Patti: I need to know I can track him down and kick him in the cojones if he messes this up.
Keith: And that’s why I’m not the guy to help you with this.
Frank: Be careful, Eli. Going against the visions.. .it’s risky.
Eli: Yeah? Well, if God wanted a puppet for a prophet, he should’ve chosen an accountant.
J.J.: I’m a swimmer. I don’t put alcohol or drugs in my body.
Eli: Absolutely. I was a mathlete. We had a similar ethos.
Jordan: But this is our firm. We’re equals. We need to make these decisions together and I need to respect that.
Eli: Yes, sir.
Jordan: It’s "Jordan." People call you “sir” now, Eli, not the other way around.
