Meanwhile at the table Sami and Nicole start arguing and EJ breaks them up. He tells Nicole if she wishes for him to represent her she can not keep insulting his wife.

Sami looks at him and says she won’t make any deal with him; it will be either Nicole or her, plain as that. Before EJ can say anything else, Nicole comes up and apologizes to Sami and hands her a line that EJ finds charming. Sami doesn’t fall for it though. Nicole says ok then she will just try to find herself another attorney and she walks away. EJ tells Sami to see what she has done now and he goes after Nicole.
