I mean that if

you made more effort,

you may get a man

to ask you out.

I don't want a man

to ask me out.

You know, 80% of women

who say they are too busy

to have a relationship,

are really Ionely,

Audrey.

You know, I don't

feel the need to date

just to stay on the right

side of a survey.

- And it's bad for your skin.

- What?

My skin is always better

when I'm dating.

You're never not dating.

And just look

at my complexion.

- You, on the other hand...

- I, on the other hand,

have stopped having

this conversation.

Oh my God, is this it?

It's an extraordinary

townhouse

with a total floor space

of 9,000 square feet,

not including the garden.

May I ask what you do?

It depends on the occasion.

And your friend?

I'm just along for the ride.

This view

of the dining room

was recently featured

in Manhattan Interiors Magazine.

Oh. What was

hanging there?

Uh, John Sargent.

Yeah, Mr. Harrison has

an amazing art collection.

Too bad none of it

comes with the townhouse.

Now if you'll

follow me this way.

Now this ceiling

was actually handcrafted

by the great-grandson

of Charles Thorpe.

That wasn't cheap.

I guess it pays to be

the emperor of infomercials.

Mr. Harrison made $30 million

off "The Hair Houdini" alone.

That much?

Oh my God.

Now if you'll follow me

to the main bedroom.

Know what, Sara? I don't think

this is the place for you.

It's kind of...

cramped.

- Cramped?

- Well, it was all I could think of.

Besides, I had

everything I needed.

So, the Sargents

in the dining room are gone,

the Cassatt

in the living room

has been replaced

by a lithograph,

number 139 of 150 run.

Over the grand piano is a framed poster

of the East Hampton Film Festival.

Somewhat less valuable than the Sisley

that was hanging there,

and whatever those

monstrosities are in the hallway...

if they're Francis Bacon,

I'm a Jimmy Dean sausage.

Yes, sir...

Mr. Harrison's scam

is going to unravel

and I will get

millions off him.

But for someone else.

See, that's the part I don't get.

- Where's the pleasure?

- Winning.

- Thanks for today, Mom.

- Shh... Audrey.

I've asked you not to use

that word in public!

That two-faced,

lying son-of-a-bastard!

Mary, you know

I don't like spouse bashing.

This happens all the time.

He may have hidden them, sold them...

we'll find out.

Luckily, I've dealt

with Tom Hoffman,

the opposing counsel,

in similar situations.

He's a good lawyer,

but I'm wise to his game.

Hmm.

What does this mean?

Is it bad?

No, it doesn't

mean anything.

It just means that your husband

has a hired a new attorney, that's all.

His name is

Daniel Rafferty.

- I've never heard of him.

- Me neither.

He's new in town.

- This makes me nervous.

- Oh, relax.

You have nothing

to worry about.

A new attorney who has

never practiced in New York

will never get up to speed

this late in the game, okay?

You have nothing

to worry about.

I have never

lost one of these.

It's fine, it's fine.

It's okay.

It's not a problem.

It's okay, everything's okay.

You're all right.

Okay.

Ready?

That's Gary's

new attorney?

Audrey Woods.

I'm representing Mrs. Harrison.

- Audrey Woods.

- Right, for Mrs. Harrison.

I've heard good things.

That felt nice,

by the way.

I realize you're just starting

to familiarize yourself with the case,

but I wanted to make you

aware that... what?

Er, you got a little...

right here.

Uh, thank you.

Anyway, as I was saying,

um, it has come to our attention

that certain assets

accumulated, uh...

accumulated during the marriage

have not been accounted for,
