Episode Summary

EDIT
Fish brings in a client, an 80-something world famous artist, who is battling his heirs to regain control of his estate. Ally and Billy co-counsel the case, and as a result of spending several late nights together, separately conclude that the artist's love of his recently deceased wife parallels their own relationship in many ways. Meanwhile, Cage begins to sense that Ally is losing interest in the possibility of getting together when she behaves in an overtly irritable manner that is obvious to the entire office. Fish loses his patience and decides to get to the bottom of Cage's problem with Ally.moreless

    • TRIVIA (0)

    • QUOTES (8)

      • John: As you know, I'm on the precipice of a date with Ally.
        Billy: And?
        John: I'm fraught with anxiety. Should I endeavor to kiss her - well, according to Cosmopolitan magazine, women draw significant conclusions about a man's potential technique as a lover simply by the way he kisses. And I'm not saying I agree with the nexus, but being prone to high saliva secretions, I'm - I'm fraught.

      • Richard: He wants to get married. His son won't let him. He's retained us.
        Ally: What do you mean his son won't let him?
        Richard: He was deemed mentally incompetent two years ago. Evidently, he's a bit of a cracker, but of course, since we represent the cracker, we won't be taking that position.

      • Richard: John, if you don't kiss a girl on the first date, you're a gentleman. If you don't kiss her on the second, you're gay!

      • Seymore: (to Ally) Go tell your boss I want pants! While you're at it, tell them to throw in a penis.
        Paula: Seymour.
        Seymore: Men make the best lawyers! Does that make me a chauvinist?

      • Sam: There are some people who meet that somebody that they can never stop loving, no matter how hard they try.

      • Ally: We will go into court if that's what you want. But we have to be honest about something. This could be terribly painful.
        Seymore: Lean forward, skirt-less. Lean forward. My wife died. My son went to court and had me declared incompetent. Now, what kind of pain do you have in store for me that I don't already know about?

      • Ally: [Seymore] still loves his wife. He wants to continue experiencing it and sharing it. And maybe that makes him crazy, but we should all be so lucky to end up with somebody who has a little bit of that insanity. Somebody who never lets you go. Somebody who... cherishes you... forever. Talk about a legacy. Loving somebody forever. That's a legacy.

      • Billy: Will you ever forgive my letting go?
        Ally: I forgive it. But I'm still not sure I'll ever understand it.
