Episode Summary

Pilot (1)
Gracen and Gracen find themselves in hot water over an unethical decision regarding the baby food that is produced by one of their subsidiary companies; Baby's Finest. Information was leaked from within the company and this leaves the company investigator wondering whether the timing of Jim Profit's arrival on the executive team of G&G is a coincidence, or whether the leak could be part of a sly plan from the mind of Jim Profit in order to expedite his progress through the ranks of upper-management at the company.moreless

      • Joanna: There are ways to undelete files, Jack.
        Jack: Don't you need a search warrant for something like that?
        Joanna: (grinning) I forgot how old fashioned you are. It's refreshing.

      • Jack: Say, what does your shrink say about this insomnia?
        Joanna: He says don't talk to your ex-lovers about your sleeping habits.
        Jack: Mmm, good shrink, what does he charge?

      • (Profit holds up a needle found in Bobbi's jewelry box & looks questioningly at Bobbi)

      • Jack Walters: Three months too late, but I'm sorry.

      • Joanna: Let's start with whoever could have gotten into the access prohibited files.
