Network - Episode 2.02 - See You in Court

2x02 - “See You in Court”

By: Jessica Boggs

It has not been a week since the controversy with Ash, but network headquarters is swarming in controversy since Ash resigned as network president. Charlie is holding her own as interim network president. All of a sudden, a woman storms into the office with allegations. Her name is Carolyn.

Carolyn: Where is he?
Charlie: I don’t know what you are talking about.
Carolyn: That bastard.
Charlie: Lady, I don’t know where the bastard is.
Carolyn: Ash Chambers!
Charlie: He doesn’t work at this network anymore.

The scorned Carolyn then pauses.

Carolyn: He doesn’t?
Charlie: He doesn’t.
Carolyn: Okay. I didn’t know. But next time you see him or his new bride, I have papers. See you in court.

Carolyn, like Alexis Carrington from Dynasty, makes a dramatic exit from the scene.

Charlie: What the hell was that?

Charlie holds what appears to be a subpoena.

Charlie: This whole network has been subpoenaed in a lawsuit against, you guessed it, the entire network for allegedly “covering up” domestic violence allegations.

Leah then enters the scene in shock.

Leah: Who does that b**** think she is?
Charlie: I am thinking the same thing. We’ve been summoned in her lawsuit against us.
Leah: Wow. How theatrical. Soap opera type theatrical.
Charlie: I think I know exactly how to get dirt on his alleged ex.
Leah: Holly would be good enough to get some information.
Charlie: Is she in law school now?
Leah: Close. She is in school for information technology. She is interning at the FBI.
Charlie: Maybe she can help us uncover some sketchy s***. That lady that gave me the subpoena sure looks sketchy to me.
Leah: Anything to clear my husband.

Charlie and Holly are at the office figuring out how to use damage control.

Charlie: Say Holly, I didn’t know you even interned at the FBI.
Holly: I know. Shocker. I quit my job as a bartender a while back and decided to go back to school. The job I have now takes the cake.
Charlie: I’m sure you heard about what’s going on at network headquarters. We are dealing with a literal s*** show. Ash Chambers is dealing with domestic violence allegations.
Holly: Domestic violence?!?
Charlie: Yep.
Holly: That does not sound like Ash. At all.
Charlie: I know. Which is why I am wondering if you can help me dig dirt on Carolyn Chambers.
Holly: Let’s see.

Holly then motions for Charlie to move out of the way and logs into the computer. Holly wants to look up incriminating information, so she Googles Carolyn’s name.

Holly: Look Charlie!
Charlie: What is it?
Holly: Carolyn Chambers’ arrest report.
Charlie: Let me see.

Charlie then looks at the information.

Charlie: That b****!
Holly: Want to guess the charge?
Charlie: Don’t say it. I know.
Holly: It was assault with a deadly weapon.
Charlie: I knew something was off with her. I just knew it.
Holly: What do you mean?
Charlie: Let me look up social media.
Holly: There is more.
Charlie: And it says that she lied about the allegations about him. He was never arrested for them, while she gets arrested for assaulting him. It also says that he filed a restraining order.
Holly: Oh my. This could be a retaliatory move.
Charlie: That’s exactly what it is. Retaliation. Wait until I get a baseball bat.
Holly: If it’s the same baseball bat used for an assault attempt on me months ago, I don’t think it’s a good idea.
Charlie: It is, but this time, it is with good reason. She f****** lied about Ash. That is not cool.
Holly: Unfortunately under Marsy’s Law, if Ash acted in self defense, he gets punished for it.
Charlie: Now that is f***** up. Wait until I give the narcissist a piece of my mind.
Holly: Be careful, Charlie.
Charlie: As soon as this network president gets to court, I will give all the evidence and counter evidence.
Holly: I don’t think public record is permissible in court.
Charlie: We’ll see about that. She’ll think twice after going after her ex-husband who already filed a restraining order on her.

Next week on an explosive episode of Network, Charlie and the rest of network headquarters head to court in a courtroom fight of the ages!
