  • show Description
  • This 30 minute edit, "Ally," of one of Fox's most successful shows, "Ally McBeal" attempted to focus on the comedic aspects of the show and the character's personal stories, leaving the court stories out. David E. Kelley, the creator of the original version, included here some un-aired shots of the original version. Due to poor ratings it only lasted for 10 episodes, with 3 remaining un-aired. Before the season began, some asked if this was too much Ally. This was an attempt to fill in the blank spot on Tuesdays nights on the 99'-00' season.moreless

  • Quotes (5)

    • Richard: Of course she frightens you, she'd floss her teeth with the inside of a moth, but it could be a fun moth. The question you have to ask yourself, are you capable of dating her without falling for her, if yes, you're on, if no don't even think about it. John: And what about you and Ling? You thing you two could work out? Richard: Not a chance, but that's a plus for me, I want something that is emotionally inaccessible. John: Why ? Richard: So when it falls apart, it won't be my failure. That will be a refreshing change.

    • Georgia: Richard? I, I know she's a plum... Ling (jumping to her defense): People like you don't understand. Beautifully proportioned. The shapely can be so blind to the less fortunate. I tried to give my sister the chance to maybe feel what it's like to be someone like you. To walk down the streets just once, feeling ample. Maybe God didn't give you a heart under your perfect breasts.

    • Nelle: Can I ask you something ? John: Questions make me frown. Nelle: Are we ever getting to go out? I don't mean downstairs to the dance floor, I mean, out. John (stuttering): Pough... Poughkep... Cornwell.

    • Georgia (About Ling): Who is she suing this time? Elaine: Maybe her gynecologist pulled the wrong tooth. Georgia: Elaine ! That was vicious !

    • Elaine: Ling! You're back? Ling: I'm here to see Nelle. Elaine: Certainly. And, who will we be suing today?
