Is that for me?
No, actually, it's for me. You're later than usually this morning. I've been waiting for you.
Donna, about the other night. I know you said you wanted more, but before you say anything...
I want to be a partner.
Yes. I figured out (figure out) what I want, and I want to be a partner at this firm.

I know that, but it doesn't mean that I can get you...
I've given over ten years of my life to this place, Harvey, and I've done it all from your desk. All I'm asking is for a seat at the table.
I'll have to ask Louis about it.
Does that mean that you're on board?

I don't know. It's Mike's first day back, it's a big ask, and on top of all of that, I've decided to tell Louis that I'm taking full control as managing partner.
Well, congratulations, Harvey, but which is it? Louis? Mike? "Big ask". Because I'd hate to think I mustered the courage to do this, and then once you get on that elevator, it's out of your mind.
