Tracy tells Ellie that if she calls security, Tracy would be temporarily inconvenienced but Ellie would be out of a job. She suggests that they could agree to a mutually beneficial deal: Tracy wants the formula to the relish, and she could see to it that Ellie gets a grant from ELQ, and ELQ could maybe even build Ellie her own lab.
