Meanwhile, the paralegals are going over Lucille’s case and Mike laughs of the receipts that Mazlo has for Greece. Rachael laughs and says that her first time was in Greece. Louis comes over and tells them that they are to work, not giggle and flirt. Harvey comes in and says that he needs Mike to come because Jerome Jensen is there and he needs him.

Donna stops him by mentioning a day only he knew about. He folds and leaves. ..
