GRACE: I’m gonna get these burgers on.
GUEST 2: Grace, do you have any napkins? Uh, yes.
GRACE: Just give me one sec.
VOICE MESSAGE: You’ve reached Ben Stone. Please leave a message.
OLIVE: Mom! Mom! They need to talk to Dad.
CORPORATE SECURITY: Is Ben Stone here? No.
GRACE: I’m sorry. He’s at work.
CORPORATE SECURITY: I assure you, ma’am, he’s not. His employment was terminated as of 8:00 p.m. yesterday evening.
GRACE: What? No, that’s impossible. Why?
CORPORATE SECURITY: We really can’t discuss the details of the termination, but it is imperative that we talk to Mr. Stone or his attorney as soon as possible.
GRACE: His attorney? And I’m afraid we need to collect his I.D. badge.
