988 - Playing Fair in Business

April 7th, 2014

Episode 66 of 489 episodes

They say that all is fair in love and war, but what about business? Learn the answer in this episode. Slow Dialog: 1:26 Explanation: 3:07 Fast Dialog: 15:54 Marcel: Hey, why do you have the file for the Donovan account on your desk? I thought that was Evan’s account. Amanda: It is, but I’m about to snatch it from him. He won’t know what hit him. Marcel: You’re stealing his account? If you do that, you’d better watch your back. Amanda: You’ve got it all wrong. This is payback. Three months ago, when I was on the verge of getting the Moralez account, Evan swooped in and snagged it. He doesn’t play fair and now neither do I. Marcel: This sounds like the beginning of a feud. Amanda: Evan started it. If he wants to play hardball then what’s good for the goose is good for the gander. Marcel: You’re not worried that he’ll up the ante and try to do something even more underhanded? Amanda: Evan doesn’t scare me. Marcel: This could easily escalate. Amanda: Like I said, I’m not afraid of Evan. This is business. If you can’t take the heat, get out of the kitchen. Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
