(Julia is sitting in a cubicle in the bathroom.)

Julia: Things just aren't working out, a-and I don't know where to take things from here. Since Gavin's arrived everythings, um, just become unbearable. And the atmosphere's just- it's just, you know, not the way it was. (Julia starts to cry.) I'm sorry. Okay. Alright, um, okay, right. Stiff upper lip. I'm okay now. Okay.

(Julia leaves the cubicle and exits the bathroom. As she heads back to her office, she sees Tariq in the hallway.)

Julia: Tariq! Hey, honey, what you doing here?

Tariq: Uh...

Julia: Oh, did Justin give you another job?

Tariq: No, um, I've come to see you. I wanted to say thank you and bye.

Julia: I- I don't really understand, Tariq. Um... (Puts the camera in the pot of a nearby plant.) Uh, so why are you leaving?

Tariq: Look... There's too many painful memories here. And I've tried to... They're haunting me, alright? I just want to get on with my life.

(Justin pokes his head out into the hallway.)

Justin: Jules.

Julia: Yeah?

Justin: Can you grab the camera? Come and shoot this from the back? (Julia nods.) Yeah? (Goes back inside.)

Julia: So where are you going?

Tariq: I'm gonna go to India. (Points at the camera.) But keep it running; I'll come back. I'll come back, Julia. I just wanna... I just wanna get out there and I wanna clear my head and I'll- I'll find a job, I'll find an IT job or something. It's gonna be good; I'll-

Julia: No it won't, Tariq. You'll end up in some call center.

Tariq: No- Julia, I've got nothing here!

(Justin comes back into the hallway.)

Justin: Jules.

Julia: Yes.

Justin: Come on.

Julia: Yes. (Goes back inside.)

(Julia grabs the camera.)

Tariq: Look, please understand, alright? With all the madness going on I just need to... just breathe. You know the last time I went to India was right before my dad, um... You know the story.

(Justin comes back into the hallway.)

Justin: Jules. We're starting.

Julia: Okay. Thanks.

(Justin goes back inside and Tariq heads toward the door.)

Tariq: Keep in touch, alright? (Walks away.)

Justin: Jules!

(Julia sounds as if she's about to cry. Cut to inside the office. Gavin is sitting on Julia's desk. Julia walks to the back windows. Cut to Justin in front of the room. Charlie is standing by the wall.)

Justin: Alright, let's give a warm welcome to Charlie. (Claps, and everyone else claps as well.) Alright, Charlie, run it past us.

Charlie: Um, well Justin, our plan for promoting JustIncredible.TV would start with, um, a nationwide tour of all the Universities. (Motions at a map on the wall. Cut to Lee building a pyramid out of cups.) And we're going to go to each place and hold live events and showcase all the JustIncredible formatting, and the talent, and-

Justin: (Cutting off Charlie.) It's great. It's great.

Charlie: And the, um...

Justin: I love it! Don't say another thing. (Claps.) I am ready to greenlight this right now. You have got the key; you are gonna be out there next week.

Charlie: But you're launching on Monday, so...

Justin: That's right. Yeah, I want it now, and- No, I am gonna push back the launch. Can you change the board? Bump it on...twenty-one?

Charlie: But this is the publicity tour for the launch.

Justin: It's the publicity tour for the pre-launch. And it is gonna be great; it's gonna be amazing. Now, run me through the team.

Charlie: Um... Yeah, well, I'll- I'll be running the tour, and...

Justin: And you'll be taking Lee for the talent. (The camera pans to Lee, who is sucking on a cup.) Um... Jules, you'll produce. You alright with that, Jules?

Gavin: Uh... Could-could I just flag up at this point? U-um, you might require a lot of tech support for the, uh, for the-for the tour. Just saying.

Justin: Nah.

Gavin: N-No, because you know, a-all that equipment, uh, t-to get back in, and coms, and... You probably need, I mean, it's quite a big...

Justin: Well can't, um... Can't you go on the road?

(Cut to Charlie looking annoyed.)

Gavin: Yeah! I s- I suppose I- If- if The- Yeah, if you think that's a good idea. Yeah. (The camera pans to Lee looking scared.)

Justin: Great. Well done, Charlie. (Claps.) Well done, team. Alright, and you get this sorted out today, can you?

Charlie: Yeah. (Justin puts his thumbs up and leaves.) Sure.

(Gavin flings his pen at Lee's tower of cups, knocking it down.)

Gavin: Week away, all expenses.

(Julia starts crying.)

Gavin: You okay? (Gets up and goes over to Julia.)
