Marcel: Hey, why do you have the file for the Donovan account on your desk? I thought that was Evan’s account.

Amanda: It is, but I’m about to snatch it from him. He won’t know what hit him.

Marcel: You’re stealing his account? If you do that, you’d better watch your back.

Amanda: You’ve got it all wrong. This is payback. Three months ago, when I was on the verge of getting the Moralez account, Evan swooped in and snagged it. He doesn’t play fair and now neither do I.

Marcel: This sounds like the beginning of a feud.

Amanda: Evan started it. If he wants to play hardball then what’s good for the goose is good for the gander.

Marcel: You’re not worried that he’ll up the ante and try to do something even more underhanded?

Amanda: Evan doesn’t scare me.

Marcel: This could easily escalate.

Amanda: Like I said, I’m not afraid of Evan. This is business. If you can’t take the heat, get out of the kitchen.
