Louis: He was supposed to be gone for two weeks. We had a verbal contract: I would have custody for two weeks.
Nigel: It was a babysitting arrangement.
Louis: One that I was mentally, emotionally, and physically prepared for. And accordingly, I am legally entitled to Mikado for one more week.
Nigel: That is not the law. [...] I have a meeting, after which I will collect what is rightfully mine.
Louis: That was genius!
Rachel: No, Louis, that was a stall. Because the truth is Nigel's right. She's not your cat. You've got to let her go.
