It was just a dinner.
Not to me.
Ever since I've got here,
all I've wanted is to be a player in the scenes,
not lurking behind them.
Whole loyal employee thing is just an act?
My loyalties lie with Ashley.
I have to make a name for myself.
I don't get to sit on my ass
and watch my inheritance grow
like every other spoiled 20-something around here,
Ash, you've got me all wrong.
My father's company is bankrupt,
and my family's been dealing with massive debt.
I'm their only hope of rebuilding.
Why didn't you just tell me that?
Because I was afraid you'd tell them.
Well, you see how these people are.
They smell blood in the water, and you're as good as dead.
That still doesn't explain why you stood me up.
I went to Conrad's office in the city tonight,
and I made copies of his confidential database.
This time next year,
he won't make a single decision without consulting me.
I'll be indispensible.
We're more alike than I thought.
Ever since I've got here,从我来这儿那天起
ever since:从那时起； 自那时以来
She's been piling up money ever since she got the job.
That still doesn't explain why you stood me up但这也不是你放我鸽子的理由
stand sb up:失约
You are back so early! Your girlfriend stood you up again, did she?
stand up for坚持
All your friends will stand up for you.
stand up to经受
Will this car stand up to winter conditions here?
my family's been dealing with massive debt.我家欠下了巨债
I have a huge pile of letters to deal with.
