The Grinder Season 1 Episode 4 Quotes

Deb: Who's Claire?
Stewart: She's a new attorney I hired. She has no interest in him and he's never seen anything like it.
Dean: Well it's kind of incredible.

Dean: I'm taking your advice. I'm going to talk to Claire about work and I'm going to let the fact that she's falling in love with me be the subtext.
Stewart: Why don't you just work on the case and then let the subtext be that you're working on the case.
Dean: Deb, explain it to him. He's not getting it.
