Shouldn't you be getting ready?
To do what exactly, my dear?
Finally go down for the David Clarke frame-up?
Yeah, this list worked its way free from your bag
while you were busy faking affection for me.
It's not what you think.
I think I've been played a fool by you and your wiles.
It's obviously my greatest weakness.
You're the beneficiary of Ms. LeMarchal's patronage,
are you not?
I told her I wouldn't work with her anymore.
Well, nonetheless, this house has hit its quotient
for vindictive harpies.
You're more than welcome to resume slinging drinks
at whatever backwater berg will have you.
I admit that when I returned, I wanted payback,
but I just couldn't go through with it.
I gather from the tenor of your text
that all is not well this morning?
Victoria isn't attending the wedding.
Why is it the women in my life
never cease to surprise and disappoint?
I know that she and I have had our differences,
but to miss her son's wedding?
Well, you and your union have my full support, Emily.
because I already have no family.
And I'm sure their absence is amplified
on a day such as this.
So please don't think me presumptuous
when I hope that you might find me as...
I do, Conrad.
And I know my father would share my feelings for you
if he was still alive.
And perhaps he would've had some...
fresh insight on how to deal with Victoria.
But sadly, you are stuck with a man who has very little sway over his wife.
