willbchase: unless i can double up some resources on the marketing plan
willbchase: i think i can pull that in … maybe take some resources from PR
willbchase: we can’t afford anybody from R&D … not since that stupid johnson screwed up our Q4 budgetary estimates.

willbchase: did you see it when pearson grabbed harriet’s ass? man, that guy’s gonna get slapped with a lawsuit one of these days if he keeps this up.
carla: well harriet could use it so i doubt she’ll sue
willbchase: you know, if he wasn’t responsible for the atomic transpositor module, i’d have canned his ass years ago.
carla: yea but if it keeps harriet happy…

willbchase: i’ve been thinking of jettisoning it, but it would break old man mccrady’s heart.
carla: at least wait until he passes on…
willbchase: that old horse?
willbchase: man, he’ll never die
carla: then he can just roll over in his grave
willbchase: he’ll bury me, you mark my words
willbchase: you’ll get all the money you need from the stock options
