Episode Summary

EDIT
Cassandra surprises John when she suddenly shows up at the office. She wants to continue the relationship they started in LA, but John doesn't want to go on seeing her, because they're 3.000 miles away and he's not completely over Melanie yet. Ally takes the case of a man who's being sued because he didn't reveal to his internet date that he was a dwarf. Larry is representing the woman suing, and the case ends up reflecting on their own relationship as Ally questions Larry if they would be together if she was 3 feet tall. Ling and Jackson take a case of a woman who's suing her old boyfriend for interrupting her wedding ceremony. Jackson reveals his true feelings towards Ling, who is confused and torn between him and Richard. Caught in the middle of this is Renée, who feels used by Jackson.moreless

    • QUOTES (12)

      • Cassandra: Most men so forget how to be soft.

      • Ling: Don't you miss me?
        Richard: Yes.
        Ling: And Jackson doesn't bother you?
        Richard: Well, a little, but... we're soul mates, Ling, and we'll probably get back together.
        Ling: You think?
        Richard: Yeah, we're emotional guppies, eventually we'll always reunite at the shallow end of the pool.

      • Ally: Love is, um, well, it's like an obstacle course. And some people let the obstacles win and then there are those who don't.

      • Richard: When she's out of town, it's easier to cheat. Fishism. And here's a little known secret: older women. Smarter. Sexier. Better. I mean, not even close.

      • John: I'm confounded, Richard. Women find me so irresistible lately. What is it?
        Richard: You've got money.
        John: That's, eh...
        Richard: And women love power. She saw you in action. Add to that, you're sensitive. You're a rich powerful man with feelings. How many guys do you know like that besides me?

      • Ally: My grandfather once told me that you could measure dignity of a person by how able he is to see the dignity in others.
        Ling: I don't get it.
        Ally: Hmm.
        Ling: Was it a riddle?

      • John: Love is far more pragmatic than it's cracked up to be.
        Cassandra: Are you trying to convince me of that or yourself?

      • Cassandra: I just found myself thinking of more and more, so I said to myself, go visit him.
        John: And the idea of calling first?
        Cassandra: You might have said "don't." I didn't want to decrease the odds of seeing your face.

      • Michael: They say if a person is lucky... lucky... he or she will come across one person in a lifetime that he can love, and live compatibly with. My person is you, Sylvie.

      • Cassandra: Life is short, John. You have no idea.

      • Sylvie: It went off with a hitch and I am damaged. Look at me!

      • John: So, you're here to, uh...
        Cassandra: Pursue you. Sort of. Well, at the very minimum I thought I'd get a nice lunch.
        John: Well, okay, let's, uh, let's have lunch.
