Miss Grant, when Mirror Magazine
gives you an assignment...

Hallelujah! Miss Grant!
Mr. Christley... Very busy.
Yes, Christley? Miss
Grant has resigned again.
Christley, Miss Grant never
resigns without provocation.
What have you been doing this time?
...to tell a member of his
staff that her work stinks?
It is, if the accusation is
true. But you're well aware.
women photographers in this country.
Yeah, yeah, yeah. But she doesn't make sense.
Remember, furthermore, that you're
speaking of the woman I hope to marry.
All right. All right. Now, look...
But when there's a legitimate chance.
...to slip a little leg
art into the world today...
...and she comes back with
this, I don't know what to say.
Yes, well... Well...
What was her assignment?
Backstage at the ballet. Not
a sign of a dancer in tights.
Not a leg. Not even a foot.
Christley, you have been informed.
...that Miss Grant may photograph
her assignments as she sees fit.

I apologize for what I said this morning.
...and beg you to return to work.
Are you insinuating you were forced
to make this call by Mr. Fulton?
Well, I only know what I know.
Mr. Christley, I defy you to prove.
...that I have ever taken advantage
of my friendship with Mr. Fulton.
I ask for no soft assignments,
no special courtesies.
May I take you at your word, Miss Grant?
Well, the Interborough Vehicular
Would you care to crawl into the hole.
...and point your talented
camera at what goes on?
You mean under the river
while they're still digging?
Mr. Christley, you know that
that's not my type of photography.
Perhaps later, when the tunnel's
finished and there's an opportunity.
...to achieve some geometric
patterns with lights and shadows.
...that there wouldn't be any tunnel.
