- Episode Description
Mark's graduation from law school coincides with the arrest of a caretaker that he has befriended. Believing the man innocent, he finds the weight of the law stacked against him, and quickly becomes disillusioned with his new career. Should he turn his back on law altogether, though, or should he just find another way to devote himself to justice?

Mark: So far I've heard from two or three law firms. But I'm not sure if they want me or they're trying to kiss up to you.
Ironside: Of course they want you. They know you to be reasonably bright--except in the morning. You're a man with whom they can work well, good scholastic record, and with excellent references--mine.
Mark: Now the whole county backs up Ryan, but who backs up Marty?
Ironside: I get the feeling that you want to help Marty.
Mark: Well, I know him. I mean, if a guy was going to steal, would he do it in his own backyard?
Ironside: What does Ryan have?
Mark: A lot of circumstantial evidence and a previous conviction.
Ironside: What was taken?
Mark: Six thousand dollars, cap and gown money, but they didn't find a dime on him.
Ironside: That's not surprising. He could have hidden it.
Mark: Yeah, Chief, I know that, but I just don't believe that he could have done it.
Ironside: Well, then, do something about it.
Mark: Like what?
Ironside: You could... (restraining himself from telling Mark what to do) That is up to you.
