"I think when you get back you should audit your books. I have a sneaking suspicion that Nick has been bribing the City Planner's office. I don't have any proof yet, but I'm going to be a fly on the wall at that meeting Friday night and see if I can get some proof."
"Be careful, Jake. Mort and Nick are a lot more dangerous than I gave them credit for. I thought this was about Mort not wanting me anymore. It apparently runs a lot deeper than that."
And it may be getting deeper...
