Episode Summary

EDIT
Call Him Macaroni
AIRED:
Present: M.E. and Gail politely jostle over planning Emmett's first birthday party, but get into a really serious disagreement over his racial heritage. Gail insists that Emmett is a black child with a white mother and that everyone who looks at him will consider him black as well. M.E. maintains that he is biracial -- both Irish-American and African-American. When Kelly and M.E. find out that Emmett's birth certificate lists him only as black, they enlist Rene's help in getting it changed, so that Emmett will always know that he is part of two families that both love and fully accept him for all that he is. At the birthday party, the two grandmothers come to an understanding and agree to start new traditions for their families, blended and bonded by their love of Emmett. Rene takes on a sexual discrimination case on behalf of a woman whose group health insurance carrier will cover the cost of Viagra, but not the cost of contraceptives. Joe is reluctant to take on the case at first, but quickly becomes enthusiastic at the prospect of turning it into a large class-action suit. Both Rene and Joe are disappointed when their client agrees to settle with the insurance company before the case can go to trial. Rene and Turk fall into each other's arms when he returns from his trip. Not wanting to spend any more time apart, they agree to start living together at Rene's house. After a few rocky days of conflicting sleeping habits, morning routines and pets, they both agree that they are too old to be playing house. Turk moves out, and they agree to embark on the uncharted territory of their next steps together. Past: Colliar borrows his father's car without permission, a driver's license or insurance and gets into an accident. To make matters worse, he is insufferably rude to Mr. Nolman, the gentleman whose truck he hit. Rene asks her father to help Colliar without notifying his parents, which he is unwilling to do until she tells him about the beatings that Colliar and his mother suffer at the hands of his father. Mr. Jackson works out an arrangement whereby Colliar will compensate Mr. Nolman for the damages to his truck by working on his farm every day after school. Rene also makes sure that Colliar apologizes to Mr. Nolman for his rudeness, and that he thanks him for the opportunity to work off his debt.moreless
