Episode Summary

EDIT
A wealthy client is brutally murdered and the wife is implicated. Her only defense when caught red-handed is that she has no recollection of what had taken place. Billy, anxious to take on bigger cases, is the lone voice advocating for the firm taking the criminal case, but Fish and Cage ultimately decide it should be farmed out. Georgia, meanwhile, takes on a case about a heterosexual waiter suing for discrimination and wrongful dismissal when he's fired from his job for not being gay. Renée seduces a fellow attorney.moreless

    • TRIVIA (1)

      • In this episode it is said that this is Ally's first crime scene/murder but that is not true in episode 1x10 "Boy to the World" she is present at the crime scene of her client/friend/co-worker Steven/Stephanie Grant's murder, she even helps identify the body and holds the deceased in her arms saying goodbye.

    • QUOTES (8)

      • Ally: There's a dead guy there?
        Billy: Yes, Ally, it's a homicide.
        Ally: Uh-uh, I'm not going any place where there's somebody dead. You-- you know I have a thing about that.
        Billy: Ally!
        Ally: (turns to Georgia) You go with him. He's your husband.
        Georgia: Oh, now he's my husband.

      • Bobby Donnell: Why don't you want to do it yourselves?
        Richard: We would. We're just concerned for our image. You know what the world thinks of criminal attorneys -- bottom-feeding scum suckers. Can't have that image running in our firm. But on you, it looks good.

      • Billy: We'll what?
        Ally: Mutate. We'll become the kind of lawyers who can look at a dead body and instead of saying 'why', we'll say 'reasonable doubt.' You-- you can't be a good criminal lawyer if-- if murder horrifies you. And if it doesn't horrify you, then what are you then?

      • Renée: I can't bring a guy home for coffee without expecting to be mauled?
        Ally: I am saying you can lead a man by the penis, but it's the wrong way to tame him.

      • Bobby Donnell: Get out of my face.
        Billy: I'm in your face!
        Ally: So am I! I'm just shorter.

      • Ally: Do you ever, uhm, want kids? Well, it's just a question. Uh-- I'm not volunteering to carry them to term. Do you?
        Bobby Donnell: Someday.
        Ally: Well, for the sake of their innocence, you might want to cling to your own.

      • John: Are we?
        Richard: Are we what?
        John: A joke to the outside world?
        Richard: The outside world just doesn't get the joke.

      • Ally: You think we're all from Mars here don't you?
        Bobby Donnell: I never said which planet.
