INT. CEO’S OFFICE - BLAIR CAPITAL - MORNING
DON HIRSH, (50) AN EMPTY SUIT, ALL TAN, TEETH, AND A
HAIRPIECE, CONFERS WITH CLAY (35) HIS UNDERLING.
She’s going to yell.
We have to let her go, Don. Half of
Jennifer’s clients won’t work with her.
I hate it when she yells.
JENNIFER DANTE, (40S) ENTERS. SHE HAS A LOT OF STRENGTHS.
SHE’S BEAUTIFUL, SMART, SUCCESSFUL--BUT ONE WEAKNESS: SHE
HAS A LITTLE BIT OF A SICILIAN TEMPER. WHICH CAN BE CHARMING
AND AMUSING. AS LONG AS IT’S NOT DIRECTED AT YOU.
You wanted to see me, Don?
There she is! You look fantastic!
Thanks. I’m having a good day.
Well, it’s early.
"Epidode Title" 2. 2.
Jennifer, I respect you too much to
pussyfoot around so I’m just going to
say it straight out. Clay?
We’re letting you go.
That was hard for me.
I don’t understand. Why?
You have anger issues. Frankly, it’s
something that’s followed you your whole
I don’t have anger issues! Who says I
have anger issues!
(TO CLAY) She’s yelling.
(COMPOSING HERSELF) Okay, I’ve been told,
in the past, that I sometimes speak my
mind too freely. But I’ve been working
on that and I really have a handle on it.
You called Ed Rasky a dick.
"Epidode Title" 3. 3.
He is a dick!
Ted Dawson at Litwel complained about
Yeah, my attitude is I don’t do business
meetings in Ted Dawson’s hotel room.
Carter Sims at Dynaflow won’t deal with
you because you treat him like an idiot.
Tell him not to act like one. Are you
The point is, you intimidate-JENNIFER
You’re a good investment banker,
Jennifer but you have a personality
problem. You’re aggressive, you’re
cocky, you take no prisoners-
All qualities that get male VP’s
"Epidode Title" 4.
And you say stuff like that. I’m
sorry but we have to let you go.
Hey, take the rest of the day off. Go
to the zoo. They’ve got these new
baby pandas that will melt your heart.
(LEANS OVER TO DON) You’re doing a
Thank you, Clay.
I made so much money for this company.
And I think I speak for all of us when
I say how much we appreciate that.
You speak for me, Don.
A WOMAN AND A SECURITY GUARD ENTER.
Come on in, Guys. Jennifer, you know
Connie from HR and, of course, Larry from
"Epidode Title" 5.
(TRYING TO BE FUNNY) They’re here to make
sure you don’t shoot the place up. Right
guys? But seriously, you should go now.
CONNIE AND LARRY START TO WALK JENNIFER OUT.
Sorry, Jennifer. This is hard on all
Little harder on me, Connie.
You’re probably right.
(TO JENNIFER, AS SHE GOES) I know it
hurts now but you’re going to learn from
this. You’ll thank me someday. (NOT
SOTTO ENOUGH) Gonna miss that ass.
JENNIFER’S HAD ENOUGH. SHE TURNS AND WALKS BACK IN.
Okay, if you’re going to fire me for my
“anger issues” I might as well get my
money’s worth. No one give’s a rat’s ass
about what you shot at Pebble Beach or
anywhere ever! The assistants are all
creeped out by your rape-y back rubs. And
that thing on your head isn’t fooling
anyone. It looks like road kill!
"Epidode Title" 6. 6.
CLAY SHAKES HIS HEAD BUT DON’S STILL RATTLED.
Sorry. I know it hurts now, but you’ll
thank me someday.
