  • Episode Description
  • Ally, Georgia and Renée sign up for a kick boxing class to relieve stress. Ally and Georgia wind up having to fight each other because they're both beginners. As they start to carp more and more at the office, all pretext towards civility drops in the ring and their matches in the class increasingly intensify. Ally takes on a case about an attractive surgeon accused of performing an unauthorized and controversial transplant procedure. Cage insists it's time for her to visit with his smile therapist and she agrees. Fish, meanwhile is in hot pursuit of Janet Reno, who is still in town, and is once again busted by Whipper, when she smells perfume on his wattle finger.moreless

    • (Billy is trying to catch up to Richard as he walks through the office) Billy: Richard - I'm having a philosophical problem with the way we do our business! Richard: I'm glad you told me, I appreciate your honesty (walks away).

    • Ally: I just can't believe a doctor would perform an unnecessary operation just to advance his career! Tracey: (begins laughing, then turns on a laugh track with her stereo remote) Sometimes when a patient says something so naive I find my own laughter just isn't enough.

    • (John walks into Ally's office as Greg is rubbing her lower back) Ally: Hey John, we were just going over strategy for the case. John: I actually have a classmate from school who considers it good luck to rub his clients' buttocks before trial. Ally: I hurt my back, John - this isn't for luck!
