Jake hands David a letter indicating he's resigning from the research job because David is trying to push Joe out of his job as chief of staff. David notices the letter isn't signed and Jake grabs it away from him. "This is what you were gunning for all along," Jake says. Not only is Jake not resigning, his career is going to "take off like a booster rocket," he says. David tells Jake he will be chief of staff at the hospital and will get the approval of the hospital board, which reinstated him to his job. Jake refers to the multimillion-dollar lawsuit David threatened to file against the hospital if he wasn't reinstated and David agrees that money does talk. Jake leaves the room but returns with Phoebe. She tells David that she plans to donate a large trust fund to the hospital on the condition that it be managed by Joe. She says she can't stand people who threaten other people and try to push them around because they are older. That's called ageism, she says. "How does it feel?" Jake asks David after Phoebe leaves. "You can't be top dog forever." David stands there, looking defeated. Later, David knocks on Anna's hotel room, demanding she answer the door. She does, dressed only in a towel.
