The Fashion Show (Dec. 28, 1999)

Henry: It's tough being Cinderella.

Katie: What are you talking about now, Henry?

Henry: Well, Molly gets to go to the ball, while poor little Peretti has to stay and sweep up the ashes. Come on, Katie, you'd kill to cover that fashion show and you know it.

Katie: Stop assuming you know what I want. I have plenty here to keep me busy.

Henry: Katie, Katie, this is Uncle Henry. Come on, the guy that knows all your deep, dark secrets. Now, maybe you can convince Holden and Molly that you like wearing rags, but I know that you've got your eye on the glass slipper. Question is, how far are you willing to go to get it? (Dec. 28, 1999)


Henry: What I'm saying is, if we put our heads together, we can find a way to get rid of Conlan, and then you, and then you can cover the fashion show.

Katie: Look, if you're suggesting we pull a Tonya Harding, no thank you.

Henry: No, no, no, Peretti. I'm not suggesting anything that involves a lead pipe, all right? These things must be done delicately. [Sneering laugh.]

Katie: Yeah. You know what, Henry? Thank you for all your little pointers, but I think, for the time being, I can manage my own career.

Henry: Okay. But give Uncle Henry a little satisfaction, huh? Admit that you hate the fact that Moll-Doll is your boss when you know that you have ten times the heart.

Katie: And what if I did?

Henry: Nothing. I just want to compliment you on the way you've been playing everybody.

Katie: Listen, not everything I do is a performance. (Dec. 28, 1999)


Henry (after convincing Holden to let Katie cover the fashion show): So, you don't need any help from Uncle Henry, huh?

Katie: Thank you.

Henry: You can thank me later. (Dec. 28, 1999)
