Annie boasted she was finally going to be Ben's partner even if it wasn't the type she had mind. Annie explained she had plans of her own starting with corporate downsizing. This threat to Meg's job prompted Ben to remind Annie that Meg works for Gregory and her job is safe. Meg asked to speak with Annie alone.
