Lauren: It’s a love story, set in a glamorous arena very close to home. OK, let me set the stage with the characters. Love isn't just for the young and obviously desirable, right? Even with people ripening in Septembers and early Octobers of their years, love can find a way. Love, say, between a publishing titan with very big hands and shoes and a housewife from New Jersey who moved to New York to impersonate young people and learn about memes and Snapchat lens. Charles: Lauren, I don’t think… Liza: Actually… Lauren: And this loveable kitten-eared imposter soon won the heart of the boss-slash-hero, who incidentally believes of promoting from within, and he summoned up the courage… no, I believe he can say this far better than me… Video Charles: Will you marry me? Video Liza: Oh my god. Lauren: OK, so we didn’t get her answer here on video, but he got it, obvy, and therefore, it brings me great pleasure to present to you the Empirical family of the future, Mr. and Mrs. Charles… Charles: Lauren, we’re not getting married. Liza: We’re not engaged. It’s not happening.
Liza: It’s from the benefit this week. Thank you for your support table sponsor. See you this Saturday, Children’s Literary Fund. You know, C-Lit. Kelsey: That’s the name? C-L-I-T? They better hope those kids don’t read. Liza: Oh god, you’re right.
