Transcript:
All right. Explain this to me
like I'm a 2-year-old, okay?
Because there's an
element to this thing
I just cannot get
through my thick head.
Didn't you have an obligation
to tell your employer...
you had this dreaded,
deadly, infectious disease?
That's not the
point. From the day
they hired me to
the day I was fired...
I served my clients consistently,
thoroughly, with absolute excellence.
If they hadn't fired me,
that's what I'd be doing today.
And they don't wanna
fire you for having AIDS...
so, in spite of your brilliance,
they make you look incompetent.
Thus the mysterious lost file. Is
that what you're trying to tell me?
- Correct. I was sabotaged.
- Hm.
I don't buy it, counselor.
That's very disappointing.
I don't see a case.
I have a case.
If you don't want it
for personal reasons...
Thank you. That's correct, I don't.
Well, thank you
for your time, counselor.
Mr. Beckett.
Uh...
I'm sorry about what happened
to you. It's a bitch, you know?
Have a nice day, Mr. Beckett.
What the hell's the matter
with that guy?
Iris, find out if Armbruster
can see me.
Iris, find out if Armbruster
can see me.
- Armbruster? When?
- This afternoon.
- What's wrong with him?
- No, right away, Iris. Right away.
Okay.
