Brenda: Last night, after her husband left, Karen stayed late to do the books. She made a lovely dinner for two, and then something went terribly wrong. And this is the woman with whom you were having an affair.
LaSalle: The "affair" as you are referring to it, was four years ago and lasted maybe six weeks. And if Paul knew about it, it certainly didn't prevent him from coming to work for me.
Brenda: Are you saying you hired him while you were carrying on with his wife?
LaSalle: No. She stopped "carrying on" with me the day after I gave Paul the job. I'm certain it was the only reason she slept with me to begin with, stupid cow. Well, so what. Who cares. Life goes on. But this notion that Karen was cooking up a romantic late-night dinner for two is absurd because the woman could barely (knocks table) crack an egg.
