The scene opens with Harvey, Louis and Jessica at a Charity Event when Harvey sees that Tori, a client of theirs, is there. Louis asks if he smells like sausage and Harvey tells him that he doesn’t. Louis goes up to a woman. Jessica comes up with Tori and introduces her to Harvey. She tells that she has a problem with one of her employees and would like them to handle it. Jessica says that they will do it. Meanwhile Mike is with Jenny and they are getting hot and heavy. Jenny says that that they need to slow down. He agrees on the fact that Trevor is to blame. Jenny sees an invitation to Harvard Alumni Ball and asks if he is going. He says that he isn’t going to go to an event where he doesn’t belong. Lying about the Harvard Law School thing is bad enough. Jenny and Mike start to get “busy” when Mike’s cell phone rings. It is Harvey. Mike goes up to Harvey and Harvey says that they are going to fire Stan Jacobson, a Senior Accountant to their firm. Mike asks what he did and Harvey says that he lied about where he went to school and how he is a fraud. Mike asks if that could happen to him and says that he could be fired if Jessica found out. Jessica comes in and asks what she can’t find out about. Harvey lies and says that Mike is a virgin. She tells that she is not surprised. However, Mike is nervous as he walks out...
