Nicholas: So, you've played recently?

New Member Ted: Oh, about a year ago. I was working in Los Angeles.

Nicholas: I hear the London office is very good, too. It just sounds like a lot of fantasy, role-playing nonsense.

New Member Ted: [leans in] You wanna know what it is? What it's all about?

[Nicholas leans closer]

New Member Ted: John 9:25.

Nicholas: I... haven't been to Sunday school in a long time.

New Member Ted: 'Whereas once I was blind, now I can see.'

Nicholas: And you really believe that just because you publish children's books, people are going to care about my reputation? You can have pictures of me wearing nipple rings, butt-fucking Captain Kangaroo. The only thing they care about is the stock and whether that stock is up or down!

Nicholas: [In the stopped elevator] I'll give you a boost.

Christine: You first.

Nicholas: This isn't an attempt to be gallant. If I don't lift you, how are you going to get there?

Christine: You pull me up.

Nicholas: It's much easier this way. Come on, step up...

Christine: No.

Nicholas: Please...

Christine: I'm not wearing underwear. Okay? There, I said it. Satisfied?

Nicholas: [Looks at her skirt] Oh. Fine.
