I'm gonna leave you in very capable hands.

I've gotta say hi to somebody.

Thanks so much. Good to see you.

Alice. Alice, all alone.

I heard you had congressmen.

You know how that drives me wild.

Where is Cal? I could use a hand.

He's coming. Just something at the office.

Everyone behaving themselves?

It's early.

Come on. Let's get you a drink.

- Hungry?

- Famished.

Hurry up, girls!

It's dinner time!

Mmm-mmm. Mmm.

- How we doing?

- Good.

Christians in one corner,

Muslims in the other

and Jack Daniel's in between.

Dinner's close. Everyone here?

Cal's late, but Alice said

we should start without him.

How are you, sweetie?

My next life?

-In your next life, you marry a carpenter.


Where you been hiding?

The drivers out back,

they took everything.

The drivers clean you out?

They live to eat.

There you go.

Get you reloaded

and back out there.

Pardon. Pardon.

- Hey. How are ya?

- Hey, sweetie.

Have you seen Mason?

You look tense.

No, no. Just wanna talk

to Mason for a second.

What's wrong?

Nothing. I just...

Hello, Karim. Look at you.

Don't you look elegant.

-Don't you think so, Cal?

-Yeah, yeah, yeah. Very elegant.

I understand congratulations are in order.

Nadia told me

you did really well on your exams.

She helped a lot.

But she's not the one

who took the test, is she?

You heard about this, right?

Yeah. Very impressive.

Excuse me, I'm just gonna...

Hey! There you are.

I was having a nightmare.

I was gonna have to babysit

these yahoos by myself.

- We need to talk.

- You need a drink.

Too much mingling with congressmen

will make you lose faith in democracy.

Indeed. We need to talk.

Mas, we've been through

a lot together. Right?

And somehow we've managed

to steer around the icebergs.

No, thank you.
