Then, while searching in her father's desk for money to filch, Maggie finds an address; the past and the future open up to her and, with any luck, may open to her sister as well.

How long did we have him for?

- A day.

- Mmm.

That was a good day.


[ Moans Softly ]

[ Shower Running ]

[ Faucet Squeaks Off]

- Oh. Good morning, um-

- Mmm.

- Hi.

- Hi.

- Is that English?

- [ Rose ] Oh, Jim.

This is my sister, Maggie.

Shejust dropped by last night to visit.


[ Chuckles Awkwardly ]

- [ Chuckling ] Good morning.

- Good morning!

- I'm sorry about that.

- It's not a problem.


[ Sighs ]

I could've sworn I had some 20s here.

Mm-hmm! Okay.

[ Chuckles Gleefully ]



[ Scoffs ]

Where does she get the time

to do this?

[ Sighing ]


I love you.

[ Chuckles, Inhales Deeply ]

All right, Rose. What do you got?

[ Gasps ]

Oh, shit!

There's a man in this picture?

Oh, shut up!

I had technical difficulties.

- [ Man ] Who's next?

- Trust me. Look, he's gorgeous.

- Thank you.

- And smart and totally... smoldering.

- Can you make that a full pound

of the hot sopresata?

- You got it.

Office romances can go very bad.

Well, they can also go very good.

You know, 30% of married women

met their husbands at work.

- Where did you get that statistic?

- Made it up.

- Mm-hmm.

- [ Laughs ]

All extracurricular activity happens

off-campus- his place or yours.

No, his. Mine's a little crowded

these days. Maggie.

- No!

-Just till she finds a job.

You say that like that's something

she's remotely capable of.

Why do you let her do this to you?

Because... she's my sister.

[ Man ]

All right. What's your name?

[ Clears Throat ]

Maggie May Feller. What's yours?

Some of you who had plans for the weekend

are, unfortunately, going to have to cancel.

The settlement discussions for the Donaldson

case have broken down completely...

so we'll need to start

gearing up for trial.

Simon, you should put together
