: [meeting Jo for the first time, after he finds a box of photographic equipment at his door
] So you're um... a photographer then? Jo Reynolds
: And so you're ah... CIA or KGB, or just nosy? Jake Hanson
: Well, the box was in front of my door, wasn't it? I'm Jake Hanson. I live right there. Jo Reynolds
: Oh, the motorcycle aficionado. Yeah, Rhonda gave me caps and reviews on all the neighbors. There's Billy the writer, there's Michael the doctor, and there's Jake, the silent type. Jake Hanson
: And you're uh... Jo Reynolds
: Jo. The private type.
: You know, you gotta watch the water around here. The plumbing's kind of weird, you know. Like, you turn on hot, I get cold. That kind of thing. Jo Reynolds
: So, what are you saying? I have to call you before I shower? Jake Hanson
: No, no. Just if you hear my shower going, wait. Generally, I take short showers. Jo Reynolds
: Oh, I'm so relieved.
: [to Jake
] I'll think of you every time I shower.
: I just broke up with my husband, what's your excuse? Allison Parker
: I just broke up with somebody else's husband.
: [to Jake
] Oh, that's right. The hot-cold thing. When you're hot, I'm cold. How unfortunate.
: Have a nice day. Jo Reynolds
: [checking him out as he goes downstairs
] I'll do my best.
: You know, as far as I know, there's no welcome wagon around here. At least nothing official. So, if you want someone to show you around town... Jo Reynolds
: [rudely interrupting
] I'll call a cab.
: [to Jake
] I don't think I missed anyone as much as I missed you that night at Shooters.
: So if I play hard to get, I have a better chance, right? Jo Reynolds
: Rex, you could play Mozart on mouth harp and still not have a chance.
: [to Rex
] I am gonna make your butt famous!
: Who is Amanda, the Emily Post of advertising?
: Has your hair always been short? Jo Reynolds
: I was bald when I was born.
: [Alison shows off her necklace. Jo rolls her eyes at Billy
] Token of friendship. Jo Reynolds
: Of course. And that's exactly what you'll get in return.
: Is it eighteen carats or twenty four? Billy Campbell
: Twenty four. Jo Reynolds
: Definite crossing the line.
: You didn't think I was that easy. Jake Hanson
] Easy? The thought never crossed my mind.
: Christmas lights... If they're so festive and special, why don't people keep them up all year round? Billy Campbell
: Well, if you kept 'em up all year round, it wouldn't be special, would it?
: [Jo hands money to bellhop
] Excuse me, this is for you. Mr. Reynolds is a big tipper... and not much else.
: You're angry. Jake Hanson
: Yeah! I'm angry. I spent three days, doing nothing, sitting on the sidelines, not saying anything, just letting it happen. 'Cause that's what everyone - including you - told me I should do. 'Sit on it, Jake.' 'Don't push her, Jake.' I'm sorry! I can't do that! That's not who I am. I've been thinking about you. And I've been worrying about you. And I'm scared to death that I just fell in love with someone that I'm gonna lose before we get started.
: I never thought there was enough honesty in our lives. Jo Reynolds
: We never talked.
: Alison, some advice: never go out with anyone in the building.
: This life is you, Jo. Not those four depressing walls in West Hollywood with a matching boyfriend downstairs. Jo Reynolds
: It's not that bad. Karen
: I see this, our friendship, I see it as the beginning of your new life. Jo Reynolds
: Well, I was just kind of getting used to my other new life, actually. Karen
: You're an artist. A photographer. You can't close down like that. I am where I am because I'm a model, and I'm willing to do anything once. Jo Reynolds
: No, you're where you are because you're incredibly beautiful. Karen
: Hasn't hurt.
[Karen moves in to kiss Jo, who suddenly turns away just in time
] Jo Reynolds
: Whoa! Um... I'm flattered. I really... really am, but this just isn't me. Karen
: How do you know unless you try? Jo Reynolds
: I just know. I do.
: [about Jake
] He's not much of a dancer. Karen
: But he's so fun to look at.
: Why don't you just admit it, Allison? You're in looove! Allison Parker
: Guess we're not very good at staying broken up. Jake Hanson
: That's surprising, considering how much practice we've had.
: What do you call a woman like that? She's too young to be a tramp. A bimbo, bimbette? Jane Andrews Mancini
: How 'bout 'whore'?
: We've lived together, what, two days, and already we're out of topics! Jake Hanson
: My mouth was full!
: [to Jake
] This is a nice shirt, but it would look better on the floor.
: So tell me about this dream you had.
[Jake sets down their coffee cups
] Jake Hanson
: I'll show you.
[Takes her by the hand as they run to the bedroom
: Before breakfast?
: [to Steve
] You two. It's just work, work, work.
: [to Alison
] You set us up just so you could keep Billy from getting jealous. You've already got the greatest guy in the world. What more do you want?
: [referring to Amanda
] She's a snake. And nothing you can say can make me believe otherwise.
: I think I like it better in the morning. Jo Reynolds
: Why's that? Jake Hanson
: Because it gets my day started with such a bang.
: Who's Perry? Jake Hanson
: Bad news. Jo Reynolds
: Let me rephrase the question. Who's Perry? Jake Hanson
: An old girlfriend alright!
: I was just cleaning out the fridge and I found this bottle of champagne. Jo Reynolds
] Where'd you find the glasses? The dishwasher? Billy Campbell
: Uh, no. The cupboard.
: [ostensibly talking about Michael
] That guy is so anal. He needs to prescribe something calming for himself. Jake Hanson
: He's alright. He just takes things too seriously, that's all. Jo Reynolds
: Yeah, you're right. I'm a bitch. Look, I need a favor.
: Jo, as president of D&D, I'm under a lot of pressure by our clients to make it work. I'm under huge pressure to make Glorious Gowns work. Jo Reynolds
: Yeah, and you're doing it by becoming a totally, self-centered ass! Allison Parker
: I'll just chalk that up to one long day. Jo Reynolds
: Don't. You were completely rude and ungrateful to me and everyone else today, just like Amanda used to be. I didn't hear a single "please" or "thank you" come out of your mouth all day. Allison Parker
: I don't believe this. We wouldn't be having this conversation if I was a man. Jo Reynolds
: Wrong, Allison! Like Amanda, you're kidding yourself into thinking that attitude is going to get to right to the top. Look at yourself. You've become the person you vowed to me that you would never become. You're starting to dress like Amanda, talk like her, act like her. Allison Parker
: Amanda may be a mean, self-serving, ultra-bitch, but she was right about one thing. Nice guys do finish last in this world. Or hadn't you heard? Jo Reynolds
: Fine! Stop being a human being. Be like Amanda. I really don't give a damn anymore.
: [looking at the photo layout
] I think this is great. What do you think, Allison? Allison Parker
: I think it's wrong. All wrong! Why are you shooting up against this wall of the house, which is blocking out the sun? Jo Reynolds
: Because this is what I see for the shot. The romance, the first love, a traditional wedding. Allison Parker
] No, no, no, Jo! This is supposed to be contemporary, happening. Our bride model is '90's Cinderella. She doesn't just dance with her Prince Charming. She talks deals on her cellular phone! She throws her wicked stepsisters into the pool! Jo Reynolds
: Allison, you can't just throw this at me right now, not the day of the shoot. You should have told me this two weeks ago then I would have had lots of time to set it up the way you want it. Allison Parker
: I don't want to hear it! You're the photographer, Jo. Make the adjustment. Make it work! Jo Reynolds
: It's not that simple, Allison. Allison Parker
: Well, then let me simplify it for you. I want my vision incorporated in your photographs. I want you to move your equipment over to the pool on the other side of the house right now! If you're up for it, fine. If not, I can always find someone more professional who is! Jo Reynolds
: Oh, give me a break! I'm the only professional here. You're in way over your head trying to fill Amanda's shoes. Hell... you're literally turning into Amanda. Allison Parker
: Just do it, Jo. My way... or you'll never work in this town again!
: I'll tell you what, Jakester. Why don't you just go and hire a real accountant for $400, and he will tell you the same thing. And then you'll owe $8,800.
[Sarah and Jo are looking at the photos Jo took during a D&D and Models Inc. photo shoot
] Sarah Owens
: It's weird. Just sometimes I wonder, can I really do this? Jo Reynolds
: Stop. You know you can. Sarah Owens
: I want it so badly. To succeed, to make it work, to be like Teri Spencer and the other top models at Models Inc. It's just the dream, it's so scary. What if it doesn't come true? Jo Reynolds
: You know, Sarah, I may not know about what I'm talking about, but there's something very wonderful about you, especially on film.
: [to Allison
] Is this love, or a bodyguard?
: Palmer had to have taken Jake by force. It's the only thing that makes any sense. I mean, he could never have bought Jake. Jo Reynolds
: No wonder Amanda is the way she is. She's Palmer Woodward's daughter, and she's just like him: paranoid, distrustful, deceitful. Her survival instinct always at work in the office and out. "Everyone is out to get me. Get them before they get you. Never trust anyone." Matt Fielding
: I don't know. I think she trusted Jake. Allison Parker
] Yeah, as much as she could trust anyone. The only person in this world that Amanda Woodward trusts and counts on is Amanda Woodward.
: I don't know what's worse: that I had to bail you out of jail, or that you lied to me. Jo Reynolds
: Well, go home, sleep on it and then get back to me when you've figured it out.
: Just because I can't be trusted doesn't mean I can't be a good listener. Jake Hanson
: Yeah, that makes a lot of sense.
