MONK: C’mon, Alex. All we want you to do is to ask the Boss why he’s using those flaming letter things again.
ALEX: He’s my boss, he’s evil, and he keeps trying to promote me to management. Taking an interest in things he hasn’t decided to tell me outright? No thanks. Let Alice do it. She’s in Marketing, the Boss likes her.
ALICE: I already asked him.
MONK: You did? Why didn’t he tell you?
ALICE: Oh, he told me.
KING: He already told you? Then why didn’t you tell us?
ALICE: I wanted to watch him try to promote Alex to management again.
