(birds chirping)

Now remember, Mr. Pike likes

a chilled bottle of pinot grigio

at the table right as he sits.

Thank you!

- Hi, Laurie.

- Hey there!

Hey, things are looking great!

You know, I was thinking,

maybe we should back off

of the Napa chard

a little. It's Oregon!

We have beautiful wines here

that need to be experienced.

(cell phone ringing)

Hi, Dad.

Well, this is a nice surprise.

You never call.

I hope I'm not bothering you.

Is everything OK?

[Yeah, yeah, yeah.

I just, uh...]

Look, I don't wanna

take too much of your time.

I know you're busy at work.

But I was wondering,

is there any chance

you could get

some time off this week?

[I've got some news I want

to talk to you about in person.]

Dad, it's gonna be hard

for me to get away right now.

Oh, OK. That's all right.

I knew it was a long shot, but I

thought I'd take a chance.

Well, can you tell me

the news over the phone

instead of in person?

- Ah, I'd rather wait

'til you're off work.

- OK. I'll call you later, Dad.

- OK, hon. Bye.

- Bye.


Hey. Hi, sorry.

I was just, um...

just talking to my dad.

- Oh, how is he?

You know, he wanted me to come

home but he didn't say why.

Well, when's the last time

you were home?

It's... it's been

a little while.

You must miss him.

I do. How can I help?

In two ways:

firstly, I need you

to give me your honest opinion

on this sauce.

It's for the Valentine's menu,

so it has to be perfect.


Maybe a pinch of salt,

but it's delicious. Really.

You've got the best taste

in the house after me.

Now, the next thing is...

you know the old steakhouse

up the street?

- Yeah, I heard it was for sale.

- Not anymore. I bought it.

- What?!

I'm opening

a second restaurant!

That is...

that is so fantastic.

What do you think about...

running it for me?

Really? As your partner?

As my general manager.

You know, you've done

such a great job here,

I would be crazy not to have you

manage the new place.

And there would

be a raise involved.

Maggie, I...

thank you for thinking

of me, but...

I've been your GM here

for five years.

I've gone as high as I

can go in this business

outside of... having

something of my own.

I just don't know

if the investors will go

for me bringing in a partner.

- Right.

No, I... I... I...

I understand.

Listen, why don't you take

some time, go and see

your dad and think

about my offer?

(low-key electronic music)

- (woman):
Good morning, team!

- (all):
Good morning!

Stratosphere Beverages

trounces the competition

when it comes to distributing

hip, inexpensive wine.

But now, it's time

to prove that we're more

than trendy wine... and this

is how we're going to do it.

Grange Family Wines.

They've turned down

every company who's

approached them in the past,

but we just scored

a meeting with them.

Grange is an award-winning

boutique winery

that can bring us

a new level of respect.

Between their potential

and our marketing muscle,

we can make them

a global name...

if... we can get them

to say yes.

What we need is a sales rep

to go there

and do the unthinkable:

convince GFW to sign with us.

Who's in?

- I'm in.

And that's why Seth

is our number one guy.

Any other volunteers?

- Taylor... I got this.

Looks like it's all yours.

This meeting's adjourned,

I guess. Oh, Seth?

A prestige winery like Grange

will boost our public profile

beyond party wines.

We need this.


I'll lock it down in three days.

- You know

there's a VP position

opening soon?

You nail this deal

and it could be yours.
