Hands wigged out.

Duh. We all should’ve seen that one coming. The guy was totally weird, but I guess I really didn’t think he’d freak on Shirley and try to kill her! I mean, dude. All I can say is thank god for those typing lessons. I can’t even imagine what would have happened . . . And here I was honestly going to make an effort to be nicer to him, I really was. I mean, I kind of owe him one, but maybe it’s just as well that I didn’t. Can I just say I was completely and utterly CREEPED OUT when he called me the hot secretary who makes him nervous? *shudders* But you know, it is unfair how the partners were treating him. I mean, Alan and I couldn’t have won that case without him. The guy is a genius. Everyone takes advantage of his super brain, and then just – poof! – disregards him when they don’t need him anymore. Uncool.

But whatever. I’m just still just trying to recover. I am happy for Mr. Chase though. He seems to fit in really well with the partners. It’s just too bad everybody can’t be a partner.

This is so the weirdest job I’ve ever had.

Oops. You're right. I guess he did make that clear during his . . . episode. I meant to say "Jerry wigged out." What's going to happen to him now? *she asks, partly out of concern for Jerry's well-being (after all, he did help her out of a bind) and partly out of concern that he won't be incarcerated immediately and therefore might still be sneaking around the office, and could appear at any moment, still harboring a grudge and a knife*

Oh, and before I forget, sorry for falling asleep in your office the other day. Won't happen again.

We can expect attempted murder charges, along with whatever else Shirley sees fit to concoct. Should he be convicted...well, we all know how that story goes.

I apologize, by the way, for any distress the ordeal might've caused you. If it makes you feel better, I never got any cake.

*smiles* You're welcome to the couch any time. You're a much more tranquil sleeper than I am.

He can't go to jail. Oh god. Can you imagine Han - Jerry is jail! *thinks about it and looks horrified*

You don't need to apologize. You were the one who saved the day. That was great how you talked the knife right out of his hands - oops I mean, yeah. Funny how that word keeps coming up. You didn't miss much. I think the cake was just for looks. Too many calories anyway, Alan. *smiles*

Your couch is really really comfortable. But that reminds me, how is it . . . going? Those, you know, night things. Is it getting any better?

*has already spent a great deal of time imagining just that scenario* Given his uncanny knowledge knowledge of the law and my not inconsiderable skills, it shouldn't come to that.

*pleased* I didn't save the day. I salvaged a few minutes. *sobers* What I meant was--and let me say first that these sorts of incidents are by no means typical--I'm sorry you came to work expecting to type and ended up fearing for your safety. You ought to petition Shirley for hazard pay.

*nods* It is, thank you for asking. I haven't been tempted take any running leaps from the balcony since Denny and I began sleeping together that night...for some time now.

I hope not. He just doesn't seem like the jail type. I know you'll get him off though. *smiles*

Yeah! *puts hands on hips* I should get hazard pay. Oh wait though, I guess I wasn't the only one in danger. And I heard this kind of thing happens a lot. Didn't you get held at gunpoint once? *raises eyebrows as if to ask, is that really true*

I'm glad to hear Denny is helping you. I'm sorry I couldn't . . . " shrugs and looks slightly regretful but tempers it with compassion. "But I'm really glad you're better."

Thus incurring Shirley's wrath.

Yes, there was a rather tightly wound gentleman who believed negotiations for the return of his children might be conducted more expediently at the point of a pistol. It's not common occurrence.

Melissa, you did all you could. You endured what must have been a terrifying experience and you may well have saved my life. The only reason Denny fares any better is that he could sleep through a third World War. In any case, thank you.
