Titus: You were having a nightmare.
Titus: It's okay. I got you.
Stephanie: Thank you for seeing me at this late hour. It's really the only time I could spare.
Damien: Hmm. I can't imagine why such a high-powered attorney like you is putting forth such an effort to meet me. I've got to say, the photos I've seen of you don't come close to showing how enticing you are.
Stephanie: I need you back in Amara's world.
Damien: What if I'm not interested?
Stephanie: Oh, you're interested. You have until noon tomorrow to get on board with me, or I will blow up your world, and you'll never be able to piece it back together again.
Stephanie: Uh, Amara. What a surprise.
Amara: Just sampling the best breakfast place in town.
Stephanie: You never tire of sampling things that belong to me, do you?
This could be either the best feeling in the world or the worst. You choose Mr. Mayor. Get me that airport concession.Bella
Security Detail: Apparently, it’s happening right now, Mayor.
Evan: Why wasn’t I told about this?
Security Detail: They made it sound like they just found out. Here’s a text.
Evan: Heads up, they’re bringing the mayor’s mistress in.
Titus: I’m here for a reason.
Lori: And I’m here for the long haul. Too bad you don’t realize that’s not on the cards for you.
Amara: Let me inform you why you’re here. Poor judgment. You’re having an affair with Mayor Lancaster. I know what it’s like to get caught up. You never think it’s going to go as far as it does until it’s too late, and then you’re deep in a pile of your own making.
Daphne: If what you’re saying is true, and I’m not saying that it is, having a relationship with a co-worker could be considered ill-advised, but it’s not illegal.
Amara: So, you admit your personal relationship with Mayor Lancaster.
Daphne: The only thing I’m saying is that I do my job, and I do it well. All of my contracts for the city are above board and beyond approach.
Amara: Hmm. I mention your affair with the mayor, and you immediately feel the need to start talking about your handling of city contracts. Interesting.
Daphne: As amusing as this little get together has been, I have to get back to work.
Amara: I’d sit back down if I was you, Miss. Manning.
Daphne: What exactly are you accusing me of?
Amara: Accepting kickbacks, contracts skimming. If these allegations are true, then you could be looking at serious time in federal prison. And if you’re thinking about protecting anyone, just remember that you’ll fall first and hardest.
Daphne: Let me guess, Kent Hamilton stuck you on me. That little Amara: worm can make a name for himself by putting down the Mayor.
Evan: What the hell are you doing here?
Bella: I’m here for a business meeting. You’re always telling me to be my own advocate, so here I am.
