JOANNA: All I had to do was waste your time until tomorrow after the hearing. Please. I just needed the money.
MIKE: Mr. Hunt, harassment is a civil violation. The penalty is money. But witness tampering, that’s a crime, and you will go to prison, where, I guarantee, you’ll learn more about unwanted sexual advances than you can possibly imagine.

You can save your breath. There’s no way I’m testifying at the hearing tomorrow.
That’s not why I’m here. I know what you did.
What are you talking about?
You never worked for Devlin McGreggor. And you were never harassed by Mr. Hunt.
– That’s a lie.
– Look, I could tell you that I’ve got the canceled checks or the wire transfer or whatever smoking gun that exists. I don’t. But I will. And when I do, you’ll be going to jail. Unless you tell me what happened, right now. I’m the guy you tell.
All I had to do was waste your time until tomorrow after the hearing. Please. I just needed the money. I don’t want to go to jail.
Here’s what you’re going to do.
Wire transfer from your account to Joanna Webster’s. Phone records with Joanna Webster prior to her testimony. And an affidavit stating you paid Ms. Webster to falsely testify. Mr. Hunt, harassment is a civil violation. The penalty is money. But witness tampering, that’s a crime, and you will go to prison, where, I guarantee, you’ll learn more about unwanted sexual advances than you can possibly imagine.
Do you think this is going to intimidate me? Even if this evidence was credible, who are you going to get to prosecute a small-time witness tampering charge, huh?
Harvey, didn’t you graduate law school with the current U.S. Attorney in New York?
In fact, I did. And I think he might even be interested in pursuing a case like this.
Wait, are you two still close?
Well, I was the best man at his wedding.
Wow. No, you weren’t. You’re bluffing.
No. I think I’ve got some pictures of us at the ceremony. Let’s see. Yeah. Here we are. I must admit, I look very dashing. This is me and his mother. The woman adores me. Here we are at his bachelor party. There’s no strippers. He’s lame. But he can’t put guys like you away for sexual harassment and then go to strip clubs now, can he?
All right, what do you want?
An admission of guilt and a guarantee that you’ll obtain treatment before working again. And Nancy gets reinstated with back pay.
– And a raise.
– Okay. All right. Are we done?
The kid should be able to grow up without the burden of tuition hanging over his head. Don’t you think?
Which is why you’re also going to pay Nancy an extra $250,000.
Thank you for everything.
Not bad. Well done.
Okay, so just one question. Why did you go to Joanna’s house?
Because I figured it out.
I object. I think you did it because you care.
I did it because it’s my job.
