Episode Summary

EDIT
Ally is about to go on her 3rd date, a.k.a. the "sex date", with Victor. Everybody knows about it, but Ally is nervous because on the 2nd date the tension was so high they couldn't even kiss. Meanwhile, Ally is interviewing for new hires, and meets with big shot attorney Todd Merrick, who gets on her nerves. Ally questions if she's dating Victor to fit hers or Maddie's demands. They finally go out, and when they come home they find Maddie's nanny dead in front of the TV, ruining the rest of the date. At the firm, Richard assigns Nelle to a very important case opposite court devil Liza "Lolita" Bump, a bitchy, young and feared attorney. So feared that Richard has to get John Cage for the case. He's been working at a Mexican restaurant as a mariachi player, and is quickly intimidated by Lisa's actions on and off court. She keeps trying to seduce John in order to settle the wrongful dismissal case, and John feels he must bring "The Biscuit" back to defeat her once and for all. Meanwhile, Claire announces she's getting married, and Coretta suggests she signs a pre-nup. Lisa meets her fiancée and decides to represent him in court.moreless

        Jon: I meant to say toast. No fear!

      • (Ally is interviewing Todd for a position at the firm)
        Todd: Why aren't you listening to me?
        Ally: Sorry?
        Todd: You want to convince me to come here and you seem bored.
        Ally: I'm sorry, it's not you, I'm just a little distracted buy something else.
        Todd: The sex date?
        Ally: What?
        Todd: People talk, especially in your unisex. What's the big problem?
        Ally: Let's just stick to the interview!

      • Ally: (to Victor) I don't want to go too fast and blow you. It! IT!!

        Ally: What are you doing here?
        Todd: I just told you that, but even if I hadn't, shouldn't the wooer be at least feigning a little excitement to the wooee? Of course, I'm a litigator so my compass is probably more finely tuned to human behavior. Do you ever get to court, Ally?

      • Claire Otoms: By the way, have you and Victor had a little 'chafing of the loins' yet?
        Ally: Uh, um, no, but, uh, thanks for asking.
