Rachel: Oh, uh, Joanna, I was wondering if I could ask you something. There's an opening for an assistant buyer in Junior Miss. ..
Joanna: Ok, but that would actually be a big step down for me.
Rachel: No, actually, I meant for me. The hiring committee is meeting people all day and...
Joanna: Oh. Well, I wish I could say no, but I guess you can't stay my assistant forever.
Rachel: God, I am so glad that you don't have a problem with this, because if you did, I wouldn't've even considered applying.
Joanna: Really? Well, in that case...
Rachel: And that's I'm so glad...there's no problem.
Joanna: That's fine, actually I'm on the hiring committee, so there'll be at least one friendly face.
Rachel: Ohh! That's great!
Joanna: You know, Junior Miss is where I started. I had to sleep with the ugliest guy to get that job.
Rachel: Really? !
Joanna:No-ho-ho! Yeah. I mean, no-no-no-no-no, don't you worry, I'm sure with your qualifications you won't need to sleep with some guy to get that job. Although, I might need some convincing.
Rachel: Well, I, umm...
Joanna: Kidding! God, I feel wild today!
Mr. Posner: You have a very impressive résumé, Ms. Green. I especially like what I see here about implementing a new filing system.
Rachel: Thank you.
Joanna: Filing system? Oh-oh! You mean those-those little colored labels you put on all the folders?It certainly did brighten up the inside of the filing cabinets.
Rachel: Well, they uh, they-they did more than that.
Mrs. Lynch: I notice that you've been entrusted with a lot of rather important responsibilities.
Rachel: Yes, Joanna really has been an incredible mentor to me.
Joanna: Oh. And Rachel has been really incredible in getting my morning bagel for me. It's amazing how she gets it right almost every time!
Rachel: I-I-I of course, I have more responsibilities than that.
Joanna: Oh yes, well there's the coffee, too. Rachel can carry two things at once!
Mr. Posner: That says, very good. Now, a-uh, big part of this job is cultivating personal relationships, especially with designers.
Rachel: Yes, I realize that...
Joanna: And Rachel shouldn't have any problem with that. Her only problem might be getting a little too friendly, if you know what I mean.
Rachel: I love, working with designers!
Joanna: With them, under them, what's the difference? Eh, Rach?
Rachel: Joanna? I wanna talk about that interview.
Joanna: I thought it went very well.
Rachel: No! It didn't! That's what I wanna talk to you about. Now, just to brief you...I may cry, but, they are not tears of sadness or of anger, but just of me having this discussion with you.
Joanna: Rachel, please, don't make a scene.
Rachel: Do you want me to quit?
Joanna: What? ! What'd make you think that?
Rachel: Well all of those things that you said in the interview, I mean if you believe any of them, I must not be a very good assistant. You know what? I am just going to pack up my desk, and I will be gone by the end of the day!
Joanna:Wait-wait-wait wait! You can put your sad little muffin back in its drawer.
If you must know the truth, I didn't wanna lose a perfectly good assistant.
Joanna: That's why I said all those things about your flirting, and you drinking...
Rachel: My drinking?
Joanna: No, I must've said that after you left.
Rachel: Said what? Exactly.
Joanna: That you enjoyed the occasional drink...ing binge.
Rachel: Oh my God! ! Ohh, that is it! I'm leaving! You are just a horrible person!
Joanna: No, wait-wait-wait-wait-wait-wait-wait! Now If you're gonna get all sensitive about it! I don't wanna lose you. What if I, create a position for you? I'll make you an assistant buyer in this department.
Rachel: Say more things like that.
Joanna: Um, you can have your own office, and a raise! Effective tomorrow.
Rachel: I'd need an expense account.
