When a secretary's idea is stolen by her boss, she seizes an opportunity to steal it back by pretending she has her boss' job.
Olympia Dukakis, who has a small role in this movie, is the subject of an article in a newspaper, about herself, and her cousin Michael Dukakis, the then Governor of Massachusetts. It can be seen when Tess rips out a page of the newspaper while on the ferry.
Bob, you're not seriously looking for a new assistant, are you?
Bob Speck: Well, not exactly at this moment, but I'm always on the lookout for new blood.
Tess McGill: I'm hungry, Bob, but I am not that hungry!
It was made clear that Katherine and Jack had a long-term relationship before Tess came on the scene, and yet Jack failed to recognize Katherine's office when he went to visit Tess when she was putting on her act as a broker. Katherine has only just moved to New York from Boston. This is evidenced by what the recruiter says to Tess: 'transferring down from Boston, name of Parker', as well as the fact that Katherine does not yet have a place to live (she tells Tess on the phone from the hospital that she's staying at her parents' house and her voice on the Dictaphone makes reference to her looking for a place of her own), and says to Tess of her and Jack: 'We're living in the same city now' which implies this is a new development. It is therefore perfectly possible that, while Jack knows where Katherine works and knows that it is at the same place as Tess (and assumes that Katherine is Tess's colleague), he has never seen her office.
