Well, their plans are

pretty far along already.

Rosaleen Shaughnessy.


She took over the Foundation

when her husband died.

Her grandson lives in my building.

Do you know him?

Prince Tony?

He's got the penthouse, I

live in a rent-controlled

cubby hole on the third floor.

We might as well live

on separate planets,

but we do occasionally run

into each other in the lobby.

In fact, this morning we

even nodded at each other.

Oh... Hey! Hi!

Hi, I'm Cheri Jamison from 3A.

We've seen each other

in the lobby before.


Yeah, hi, I'm Tony Shaughnessy.

I know.

Uh... I was just

wondering if I could speak

with you for a moment.

Sure, sure.

But I kind of have my hands full here.

Do you mind coming up?

Don't worry, I'm harmless.

Of course.

Yes, great!


I can't believe all this exists

just a few stories above my head.

Come on, I'm sure your

apartment's just as nice.

Yeah, Architectural Digest

has just been nagging me

for that interview.

Did you decorate it yourself?

What, are you kidding me?

No, no, I leave that

to the professionals.

A woman named Cordelia

does my decorating.

Cordelia, no last name, Cordelia?


I see her name in

magazines all the time.

She's a really big deal.

She does all the movie

star homes, right?

Yeah, that's the one.

Well, she did a really nice job.

Do you, uh... do you want something?

Some tea or coffee, or...

Uh, just a water would be great.



It's funny that we

never really met before.

You know, since we live

in the same building.

Well, that's New York for you.

Not this neighborhood.

I've always felt a real

sense of community here.

Ever since I was kid, but you know that.

I mean, you grew up here, too.

Well, not really.

I spent most of the

year at boarding school.
