He's given me everything I wanted.

I have a nice apartment, a nice job.

He had no leverage against me before, so he created it.

So you're saying everything he's been doing is so that he can use it against you?

What about all that stuff you said about them valuing you?

You're the one that thought it was suspicious that they offered me a job in the first place.

I am giving you an explanation.

He's trying to negotiate.

If he's creating leverage, it means that he needs something from me.

It's what you do out there with them.

I want to be here, Elliot.

With you.

I want an office on the 20th floor.

I want Melissa's job, and it's non-negotiable.

Go on.

I saw the pattern.

In every version of the settlement draft for the Washington Township suit, there was one small point that your team wouldn't agree on.

It remained the same, even from the original case: That a third-party company must perform inspections on the Washington Township plant.

You continue to give up power on all these other provisions that appear to be a lot more expensive and important, all in an attempt to drop this one small point.

I know why you had those guys arrested and why you gave me this job.

You want me to convince the class to remove the contingency, and I'm willing to do all of that, because you're gonna give me exactly what I want in return.

Those are my terms.

I must say, you are very impressive.

But I'm sorry, my dear.

This is all in your head.

Now, don't take that as a slight.

Always good to have dreams.

Wait.

I'm not wrong.

Go home.

f*ck.

Do you remember the first command you ever taught me, and my computer kept crashing?

It was init 1.

That became our thing, and I am telling you right now, I am f*cking crashing, man, and so are you, and I need your help.

I need you to get on the same channel we used to.

I wouldn't ask you this if it wasn't life or death.

Okay? We're in trouble this time, Elliot.

All of us.

I have no access here.

It's not as if I'm gonna go back to my place.

Well, it needs to happen ASAP, so figure something out.

We might be owned.

What?

Why?

Well, I don't know, but we need to.

Elliot?

God, Elliot, say something.

Did you mean it, Darlene?

I need to know.

I want you.

Only you.

Why are we back here?

You cannot do this.

You cannot confess.

This won't save her.

They're gonna destroy her.

Who won?

No one.

What else can I do you for?

You tell him anything, and it's suicide.

I am pleading with you, Elliot, just walk away from this, now.

I'm here to... to help you with that computer problem you've been having.

I would ask what made you change your mind, but I'ma quit while I'm ahead.

Hey.

Yeah, get in here.

Did you know... that Moses heard voices too?

Abraham, John, Paul, Jesus.

In fact, many prophets confessed to hearing voices.

People like you... what you have... it can be divinity, Elliot, if you let it.
