TÉA: So this is where the brain trust of The Sun hangs out.
Why am I invited?
TODD: Well, I heard you were worth meeting.
TÉA: I heard some things about you, too.
TODD: None of them good.
TÉA: Well, that depends what you mean by good.
TODD: Well, whatever you heard about me, you probably heard from Kevin Buchanan. I heard you two are an item.
TÉA: Kevin and I are friends.
TODD: Yeah. I used to say that about Kevin a few lifetimes ago. So what did he tell you? I'm a sociopath? That I chew with my mouth open? I eat with my hands?
TÉA: I make up my own mind about people, Mr. Manning.
TODD: You can call me sir. I'm just kidding. Look, I want to thank you for coming to the fashion show and getting tested and all that. It means a lot to me, and to Starr's mother.
TÉA: Everybody wants your little girl to get well. So, now you've met me and thanked me, that's two down, any more to go?
TODD: Yeah, I wanna hire you. I'm looking for a defense attorney.
TÉA: Haven't you been in touch with Nora Buchanan? She pretty much owns the legal defense franchise in this town.
TODD: Why let the heavy hitters have all the fun?
TÉA: Good question. So, why do you need an attorney?
TODD: No, I don't. I need an attorney for a friend of mine. A brilliant, beautiful, desperately lonely woman who's been railroaded for a crime that she absolutely did not commit.
TÉA: Ah. And who is this innocent victim of an oppressive legal system?
TODD: You're a quick study.
TÉA: You bet.
