  • Episode Description
  • On the first day of his trial Hank is clearly nervous, especially after running into Mia's father outside the courthouse. Abby tries to calm Hank down, but the prosecution has enough evidence to make Hank worry. When Charlie takes the stand, he inadvertently reveals some incriminating anecdotes from Hank's past, worsening Hank's image in front of the Jury. Karen's testimony portrays Hank as a childish and pathetic drunk, and Bill adds malice and motive, revealing new information that destroys Hank's credibility of innocent ignorance.moreless

    Allusions (2)

    • During a flashback scene where Mia meets Hank by the pool she is wearing similar glasses to the main character in the 1997 movie Lolita, which features the story of a older man having a sexual relationship with an under-age girl.

    • (Hank is wearing a suit, looking at himself in the mirror as he gets ready to go to court) Karen: You look great. Hank: I look like a fucking FBI agent! This is a reference to David Duchovny's previous role as FBI agent Fox Mulder on The X-Files, which ran from 1993 to 2002.
