Two Weeks Notice

Synopsis: Harvard educated lawyer Lucy Kelson, following in the footsteps of her lawyer parents, uses her career for social activism. She hides any sense of femininity behind her work. George Wade is the suave public face of the Manhattan-based Wade Corporation, a development firm that Lucy routinely opposes and whose true head is George's profit-oriented brother, Howard Wade. George, who has a reputation as a lady's man, has had as his legal counsel a series of beautiful female lawyers with questionable credentials, they who have more primarily acted as his casual sex partners. Needing a real lawyer, he offers Lucy the job of his legal counsel on a chance meeting. Despite warnings from her parents in working for the "enemy", Lucy, who has no intention of being the latest in his bed partners, accepts the job as she feels she can do more good from the inside, and as George, as part of the job offer, promises not to demolish a community center in a heritage building as part of a development projec

aren't they?

I'm just teasing. I know there's

more to pediatrics than feet.

- Thank you very much.

- Thank you. Always nice to see you.

- George, congratulations.

- Hey, Terry, how are you?

- Still slicing people up?

- Indeed.

Yeah, I bet you are.

Hi, there. Oh, yes, the Emile family.

Lovely. So good.

- Hi.

- Nice to see you. Take care.

Melanie Corman.

Hospital administration.

My friend Elaine Cominsky wants

to meet you, but she's shy. Is that okay?

That's fine. I've been too nervous

to meet Elaine myself.

- Good. Don't move. Great tie, by the way.

- Thanks. I was rather nervous about it.

- Hey.

- Hey.

- Hey, your brother wants to see you.

- What? Now? Tonight?

Yeah, that's what he said. Although

sometimes it's hard to tell with the accent.

This is Elaine.

- Oh, hello.

- Hi. Would you sign my GQ?

Oh, GQ! I see what you mean.

Sorry, I thought it was a medical term.

You had me all excited.

- "To Elaine, George Wade."

- Thank you.

Hang on just one second.

There's no way I'm running up

to Westchester just because he calls.

It's absurd. He'll just have to wait.

- Right on. Hey, man, forget him.

- Yeah.

- Should I get the car?

- Yes, get the car.

- Good evening, Mr. George.

- Good evening, Rosario.

- Excellent new hairdo.

- Mr. George.

No, I'm serious. You look like

a young Imelda Marcos.

- Hello, George.

- Hello, Helen.

Don't you think Rosario

looks particularly lovely tonight?

I hadn't really noticed.

Rosario, the children need baths, please.

Yes, Miss Helen.

- So how are the kids, apart from dirty?

- They're fine.

- Can I get you anything?

- I'd love some Milk Duds.

We don't have any.

I could send out for one.

Oh, no, don't be ridiculous.

If you're going to send out, get a whole box.

- Howard is in the gym.
