(Blake telephones Alexis)
Alexis: Good morning, Blake. And forewarn me, what is your mood of the moment?
Blake: Determined, Alexis. You see, I found a few new discrepancies in the recent merger figures your people prepared. So I'll expect you here at 4:00 this afternoon.
Alexis: Blake, we can talk about you alleged discrepancies, but we'll talk about them here at my office.
Blake: No sale, Alexis. I've got the books, I've got the ledgers and I've got the clout. All in my office.
Alexis: Clout? What clout?
Blake: Well, you be here 4:00. You'll find out.
(Blake hangs up)
Jeff: How did she take it?
Blake: Like a cup of hemlock.
