I'm not sure I had a particular point in this one - just showing a place where the two women's philosophies (or maybe just realities) diverge. Eve doesn't have the stuff to be a competitive careerist, though she recognizes (with a slight delay) that most people around her either do, or have accepted the way the wind blows. Still, I wasn't looking to answer the question of whether Eve would start working for Jane, or if that was a good thing or not. I was thinking more about the way friends help each other as they age - in real, material ways - and how the stakes of friendship begin to rise. Can Eve afford to resist?
