David (David Beatty) enclosed in a circle of emails from Sandrine.

From left: Father (David Cramer) and Mother (Karen Harris) at the cemetery.

Mother:"And our daughter's headstone is going down" Father: "the grave's settled you see, it's had time, eighteen" Mother: "nineteen" Father: "yes, yes, nineteen months and it's, you know, it's a nice enough" Mother: "white stone, black lettering, very" Father: "£3,800." Mother: "elegant, don't say how much!" Father: "plus VAT." Mother: "don't say plus VAT!" Father: "I'm just saying."

From left: Toady assistant Paul (Peter J. Balgoyen) and David's ex-girlfriend and new boss, Val (Jill Cary Martin). Val: "I believe in money. David. That's my thing now. David. And in the same way that a plant takes oxygen and nutrients and uses the process of photosynthesis to turn sunlight into energy, I take customers and employees and use the process of hard fucking work to produce cash. I am a photosynthesist of cash."

David (Beatty) drills Jess (Kenworthy) on her day: David: "Did you buy something?" No answer. "Did you?" No answer. "Did you go shopping?" No answer. "Is that what you did, you went shopping?"

#1-#5 (Price, Gohl, Secor, Katouli and Balgoyen) throw money at Jess (Kenworthy) moments before they take it away again. 2: "Things are good." 1: "Things are really good."

Jess (Brenda Kenworthy) surrounded by (at top) #1 (Alexander Price), #5 (Ryan Gohl), #2 (Chris Secor), #4 (Sharon Katouli) and #3 (Peter J. Balgoyen). Jess:"I was rooted to the spot and all the hair was standing up on the back of my neck and I felt terrible because I was getting so emotional about a fucking hand-bag and meanwhile there still no sign of a two state solution in the Middle East and it suddenly dawned on me that the bag was designed, not to hold things, but to hold me..."

The slightly drunk Duncan (Jay Michael Fraley) asks Debbie (Terri Mowrey) if he can have her old gum: Duncan: "Can I take it?" Beat. Debbie: "Well..." Duncan: "Am I making you sick?" Debbie: "It just seems a bit" Duncan: "Weird?" Debbie: "Weird, yes."

In a private moment, Val (Martin) asks to see David's (Beatty) mole.

Jess (Kenworthy) shares her thoughts on the meaning of life. Jess: "...maybe it's about more than just I have this pot of stuff here and that's got more in it than your pot of stuff over there, and no, no, I'm not talking about a white beard or commandments and lightening bolts but I'm just talking about choosing a world that is more than numbers and quantities and saving and choosing a world that is flesh and bone and love or, more than just isn't it more than just money, mathematics, numbers, values, I don't know Isn't it? Don't you think it is?"
