Alan Shore gets up and walks over to stand in front of Eleanor: "You think its best that I leave?"
Eleanor doesn’t reply.
Alan notices his jacket isn’t yet buttoned. He does so: "Did you not you say last week, 'Let’s work this out?' Did you not say you couldn’t bear the idea of going to work at a place without me?"
Eleanor Frutt: "I said that."
Alan Shore: "Did you mean it?"
Eleanor Frutt: "I meant it. But Alan, I said that unobjectively, as your friend. As a person who continues to care deeply for you. But… I don’t think you’re entirely well. You are gonna self-destruct one day, and I can’t prevent that. But I can’t let you destroy my partners in the process. I’m sorry."
Alan touches Eleanor's hand lightly and walks away from the stand. He says nothing more.
