I don’t want a repeat of what happened last year. Ellie: What happened last year? I wasn’t working here then. Takagi: Last year’s report had a lot of small inaccuracies and a few major errors. We ended up having to issue a second version of the report. Ellie: Okay, but I thought it had already been signed off on by the department heads. Takagi: It has, but those are the same department heads who skimmed the report last year and didn’t catch all those problems. I want you to go through it with a fine-tooth comb. Ellie: What should I check? Takagi: Everything. I want you to verify the facts and figures and to flag anything that is outright wrong or even a little suspect. Ellie: Okay, I’ll do that, but this will take some time. Takagi: What are you doing this weekend? Ellie: Nothing, now. Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
