He didn’t make an offer but she knows that’s where he was headed.

She laughs some more and is surprised he’s so funny since he’s supposed to be a real creep.

She invites him to dance and he does a little jig and calls himself a golden god. They dance.

Diane finds Victor inside and talks about the auction and bidding.

He says to thank Sharon.

Diane contributed to the auction and thinks she’s getting a painting.

He’s enjoying her investment in Jabot, too.

He smirks and says there is a sucker born every minute.

He thought she took him for a ride in the divorce settlement and when the company goes belly up, he’ll buy it back for pennies on the dollar and her retirement fund will shrink to nothing.

“Enjoy yourself,” he says, smoothly as he walks off.
