There is a scene with Kara 'The Siren' Powell who talks to her assistant Meg about the key card that Derek needs. The conversation however turns away from Derek when Kara starts to insult Meg and Meg in return tells her that the CEO promoted her. It's not a very positive portrayal since the women basically insult each other but I'd say it's enough to pass the test.
The conversation goes:
Kara: You're exactly like every other assistant, Meg. You're a vapid, bottom-feeding, parasitic shithead! You're a pair of tits with zero talent. So tell me, Meg, you incompetent cunt, what could possibly possess you to destroy my key card?
Meg: Because everyone upstairs knew you would betray them. So they offered me a promotion in exchange for destroying the card. So I guess i no longer work for you, you fucking bitch. In fact I don't have to listen to your shrill voice ever again!
Kara: Fuck you!
Meg: Fuck you!
later there is also a brief conversation between Irene and Melanie about the foreclosure before it turns back to being about the man upstairs:
Irene: Now give me the hard drive. I've done my bit.
Melanie: Not yet. Got to sign this first.
Irene: Oh, oh, I could sign this, sure, then claim temporary insanity and have it dismissed.
