could donate it to the cause.

Glenn tells Earl's lookalike Benjamin that he's waiting until Lisa is alone in the penthouse before he strikes.

Duncan's Drunken Farewell

Once it is apparent that Glenn and Shannon are lovers, Duncan hits the bottle hard and begins to sign papers and seal envelopes. He has his maid, Lotte, sign a letter verifying his signature. He gives Lotte this and other envelopes and asks to have them delivered to Jessica Griffin. Then he calls Shannon and says a final good-bye.

Glenn's got Lisa alone in the penthouse. He's locked the door and drugged her brandy. A woozy Lisa tries to telephone Margo; the line is dead.

He finds photos of Shannon and Lisa inscribed to Earl, and a tape of Earl's voice calling Lisa.

Lisa realizes that Earl's lookalike is working for Glenn, but too late. Glenn and Benjamin are preparing to throw the restaurateur over the railing to certain death, when Shannon knocks on the door.
