"Look, we're your partners. This scandal stains our good names, too."

"There will be no negotiation, there will be no severance, because I'm not leaving."
"Please reconsider... or we'll have to force you out."
―Steven Benowitz and Jeri Hogarth[src]

A Night at Chocolate Bar

"What is this? Who are you?"
"Someone who, if he was doing his job, would use all this to blackmail you. But I'm not gonna do it. It's too ugly, even for me."
"Who put you up to this?"
"It doesn't matter, man. Just watch your back."
"From whom? I need to know."
"Does the name Linda Chao mean anything to you?"

"That generous severance? Double it."
"And you'll destroy this tape?"
"I'll keep it to myself. I will leave today along with all my clients, including Rand."
"That's half our billable hours!"
"Sixty-two percent, actually. You'll bounce back someday."
―Steven Benowitz and Jeri Hogarth[src]

Benowitz and Chao met with Hogarth during one afternoon in the conference room, in which they planned to settle Hogarth's severence. As they conversed on the increase in the amount paid, Benowitz was presented with a video recorded prior, in which Chao confessed to Malcolm Ducasse that she had been engaged in illegal activities with the firm's funds. He was also threatened by Hogarth, though she agreed not to publically speak on his sexuality.[3]
