What's $12 Million Between Friends?

The New York Times reports (subscription required) that Woody Allen is having trouble drawing crowds both at the theater and the courthouse. (More from CNN) Seems Woody is suing his former producer and "longtime warm" friend for $12 million, but can't see where this should affect their friendship or social schedule.
"He said he had intended that he and Ms. Doumanian would remain friends and actually enjoy the lawsuit, like playful adversaries in a Spencer Tracy-Katharine Hepburn film. He said he thought that she would find the suit 'amusing' and that they would be 'having dinner at night at Le Cirque and facing each other by day.'"
I think Woody has hit on just the solution I need to stimulate droll repartee with old friends. Pardon me, I have some summonses to prepare.
