Episode Summary

EDIT
Brian and Ally go to dinner with her parents. A nervous Ally and her hostile father make the dinner dreadful. Not even the entire restaurant engaged in a musical number can help the situation. Elsewhere, Nelle tells her lawyer, Hope, that she thinks she made a mistake leaving the firm and wants to go back. Renée sings the blues at the bar, and all join in. Meanwhile, Hope talks to Fish about Nelle coming back to the firm. He discusses it with John who nixes the idea. Next day, Ally's father visits and tells her she hurt her mother's feelings at the abysmal dinner the night before. Ally blames the situation on her father. They argue and Ally admits she's upset that her father didn't attend Billy's funeral. Ally heads home to meet Brian.moreless

  • Para una serie que ha hecho de la música una extensión de nuestras emociones...

    Para una serie que ha hecho de la música una extensión de nuestras emociones, ¿Qué mejor que acabar una temporada con un episodio musical? Ally McBeal, El musical es un ejercicio de imaginación, locura y diversión a ritmo de coreografía. No sólo da respuesta a la relación Ally-Brian, Nelle-John sino que sobre todo definde en ese universo post-Billy la frágil esencia de una mujer que había perdido todo por lo que siempre había luchado. Y ahí está como ejemplo la delicada relación de su padre.



    For a serie that has done of the music an extension of our emotions, what better that to end a season with a musical episode? Ally McBeal, The musical is an exercise of imagination, madness and amusement to pace of choreography. Not only it gives a response to the relation Ally-Brian, Nelle-John but especially definde in this universe post-Billy the fragile essence of a woman who had lost everything for what always she had fought. And there there is as example the delicate relation of her father.moreless
