I have an appointment

with Mr. Terrill at 2:00.

Oh. Good afternoon, Mrs. Lovell.

Mr. Terrill has cleared

his schedule for you.

How nice.

Right this way.

It's a pleasure to see you

again, Miss Lovell.

Step into my office.

Go ahead and sit down.

Would you like

something to drink?

What are you having?

Dr Pepper.

Dr Pepper?

Well, I'm a Texan, so I grew up

drinking Dr Pepper.

Would you like one?

No, thanks.

I brought my own.

So what can I do

for you besides...

pour your champagne?

Actually, I need

some professional advice.

I'm considering a divorce.

A divorce?

Has your husband provided you

with grounds?

He spends too much time

at the office...

and not enough time on me.

Well, perhaps that's his way

of showing you...

that he loves you

by providing for you.

I think he thinks that.

Mrs. Lovell, I'm

a corporate defense litigator.

I'm not a family law specialist.

Did you know that your tie

complements your eyes?

Thank you.

My wife got me this tie.

She has good taste.

I think so.

I wasrt referring to the tie.

I'm sorry.

What were we discussing?

My husband.

I don't like being ignored.

He ignores me.

I find it hard to believe

that anybody could ignore you.

Oh. Thank you. Cheers.

Don't you think you've had

enough of that, Mrs. Lovell?

Why don't you join me?

You know...

I don't drink alcohol.

Why not?

It's a great anesthetic.

Perhaps that's why.

I'm afraid...

I might like it too much.


What else are you afraid of,

Mr. Terrill?

I'm a married man, Mrs. Lovell.

- Happily, I presume.

- Very.


I have a four-year-old son.

So something must turn you on.


I like a woman

that wears perfume.

Does your wife wear perfume?


Very expensive,

$600-an-ounce perfume?

I don't know.

Does she wear it

between her legs?

I'm afraid it's time for you

to go, Mrs. Lovell.

Mrs. Lovell?

Back to work, ladies.

That was awesome.

I've decided to forget...

about filing those

divorce papers, Mr. Terrill.


I was so looking forward to our

next appointment, Mrs. Lovell.

I'm gonna get your stuff, OK?

Addison, we have

dinner reservations...

at the French Room at 8:00.

You have to be home by 7:00.


Can I call you

about that, though...

because I may have to

work late tonight.

Oh. You know what?

I think since I'm here...

I'll just stop by

and say hello to Margaret.

No, you won't, OK?

Dinner at 8:

OK. OK. I'll be there by 7:00.

Good-bye, Mr. Terrill.

Send me a bill for your time.

Hey. Any messages for me?

- They're all for you.

- They're all for me?

I'll tell you what.

I'll take the ones

that have called twice...

and you handle the rest.

Could you do me a favor?

Send my wife...

a dozen red roses, please,

and make sure they're red.

Come get me at 4:30.

Whoa! No, no, no,

not Olan Beauregard III...

the plaintiff counsel from hell.

What? He loves you.

- He hates me, Addison.

- I love you.

F*** you. Every time

I talk to him...

he files another motion.

You talk to him.

Your Mommy's home.

Mommy, look what I drew.

It's a picture of Sarah.

Careful, sweetie.

Mommy's wearing Prada.

He wasrt too difficult, was he?

Christopher has been

an angel as usual.

Do you like it?

Oh, I love it, darling.

I'm not finished drawing it.

I really appreciate you taking

care of Christopher all day.

Werert your bored talking

to a four-year-old?

I enjoy taking care

of Christopher.

You know that.

Only he is growing up so fast.

Yeah. I wish he'd grow up

a little faster.

I want to send him

to boarding school in France.

You wouldn't.
