After Erica stomps off, Greenlee takes out her cell phone. She calls a friend and asks him to do her a favor. She tells him to hire one of her friends who happens to be a financial genius, no questions asked.
Jackson continues comforting Anna. Anna admits that everything gets better with time, and that she will try to get through to David.
