“Fiduciary Duties” (S01E04)
Peter assigns an attorney, Ron, to the Pied Piper venture, who accidentally lets slip that Richard’s project is only one of eight file compression suites that Peter invests in. This impacts Richard, who suddenly panics that he has no sense of where the company should go and what it should be doing. Meanwhile, Big Head is removed from Hooli’s copycat compression software project, named Nucleus, because of his complete lack of understanding of what Richard actually did to create Pied Piper, and is not reassigned to anything, joining the other unassigned employees that spend their days doing nothing on the company’s roof. During a toga party organized by Gregory, Erlich is mistakenly appointed to the Pied Piper board of directors when Richard gets drunk. Richard initially reverses the decision, but after Erlich elaborates during a meeting about Pied Piper’s direction causing Peter to continue funding, Richard permanently appoints him on the board.
