Part 1: Act 2, Scene 6 Summary

Roy and Joe are having dinner at a restaurant with Martin Heller, who works for the Reagan administration in Washington. The character notes state that he should be played by the actor who plays Harper's role. This direction taps into the ambiguity of Joe's sexuality. Martin is talking enthusiastically about the prospects of Reagan's government. Roy is making sure that Martin is fair to Joe. He orders Martin to rub his back.

Martin hurries Joe for his decision about the job. Roy shows Joe a letter from the American Bar Association. They are threatening to disbar Roy for violating the code of legal ethics. Roy says he needs Joe to take the job in order to block this plan. Joe refuses, and Roy sends Martin out the room whilst he persuades Joe. Joe asks for another day to decide.
