Is, uh, Birch here yet? He's waiting outside.
Well, cancel the meeting. Tell him something came up.
I don't want to feed the frenzy. Yes, sir.
Give me the private line, please.
There are three satellite trucks on my street.
I'm trapped in my own home.
Somebody in the scheduling office fucked up.
Are you seriously considering Birch?
We are losing control of the process, Garrett.
Every time I've spoken to you, you've never spoken back.
Although given our mutual disdain,
I can't blame you for the silent treatment.
Perhaps I'm speaking to the wrong audience.
Can you hear me?
Are you even capable of language,
or do you only understand depravity?
Peter, is that you?
Stop hiding in my thoughts and come out.
Have the courage in death that you never had in life.
Come out, look me in the eye and say what you need to say.
There is no solace above or below.
Only us... Small, solitary,
striving, battling one another.
I pray to myself, for myself.
Who is it?
My lawyer said I shouldn't be talking to you.
Mine said the same thing. I'm not gonna change my mind, Claire.
I made a mistake. I got upset, and I acted impulsively.
I was the one who made the mistake
by partnering with you in the first place.
Well, then, can we please both admit
that it wasn't meant to be, and we can find an amicable way...
No, we can't. What do you want?
To send a message.
Organizations like yours get 90% of the grant money,
then cozy up to corporate sponsors who destroy the environment.
The things you're claiming are lies.
I never mentioned your pregnancy.
I got in touch with Evelyn Baxter.
Remember her? We had a long conversation.
It seems that you have a history of axing people who disagree with you.
She'll be testifying on my behalf.
So will eight of the people that you made her fire.
If you want an apology, I'm here to offer you one,
and to give you whatever you think is fair.
This case is gonna get national attention because of who you're married to.
I'll have a platform to say what I want to say.
That's worth more than anything you could offer.
Listen, I know we have different philosophies,
but what we're trying to achieve is exactly the same thing.
We shouldn't be fighting each other.
Do you feel that? The kicking?
