  • Arthur Frobisher's effort to gain public sympathy did not go according to plan. Gregory's been targeted for the second time and an unwelcomed guest found 'the keys' and entered Ellen and David's life.moreless

    Average episode overall; There are some unneccessary scenes here and there that are neither interesting nor important to the storyline. Arthur Frobisher tried to clean his name by hiring someone to write about his memoir, but he only made his name worse when he had a breakdown and lost the temper. Meanwhile Ray Fiske had a breakdown of his own--from reality. Gregory's got a new friend, but found himself having even more enemies targetting his life.

    Series of events have put a dent in David and Ellen's relationship. They seemed to have worked it out at the end, but David's mistake had brought someone else into their life.moreless

  • QUOTES (11)

    • Patty: This was a big step. Approaching a witness under false pretenses. Offering protection you can't provide.
      Ellen: Don't they teach that in law school?

    • Gregory: How is Katie? I liked her.
      Ellen: Is that why you lied to her, humiliated her and got her to perjure herself?

    • Arthur: I'm not a monster, Ray. I don't want to be remembered as one.

    • Ellen: So how did you guys meet?
      Patty: You tell, Phil. I always get it wrong.
      Phil: Not a romantic bone in this woman's body.

    • Patty: Let's be honest -- men are sensitive. They don't like to be dragged anywhere. We may not like it, but we know how to play second fiddle. We're bred for it. Men can't do it. At least, not the ones worth sharing a bed with.

    • Arthur: Look, I know being my son these days, you're catching a lot of grief.
      Owen: I don't listen to that crap.
      Arthur: That shit they're saying about me, someday soon, they're going to eat that. Then we'll just be, you know, a normal family again.
      Owen: I believe you, Dad.

    • Arthur: You want to know why they're suing me, you invisible piece of shit? 'Cause I'm worth it.
      George Berber: I hope that you lose everything...
      Arthur: Now you be careful.
      George Berber: ...'Cause you are an arrogant asshole.
      Arthur: (hits George in the nose with a toy he made as a child) Hey, guess what? You're fired.

    • Patty: A man should want to be in charge. Now the trick is... making him feel like he actually is.

    • Patty: (to Ellen) Most men can't handle an ambitious woman. It may take you a few tries, but make sure you find one who can.

    • (David finds Ellen in the tub)
      David: I said hello, and you didn't answer.
      Ellen: So you figured I was one of those murderers who leads you to your death with music and bubble baths?

    • Ellen: Just give me a name, Gregory. I'll keep you out of this.
      Gregory: So, what, I give you a name, you won't come after me?
      Ellen: Not if you give us a bigger fish.
      Gregory: Barney.
      Ellen: What's his last name?
      Gregory: Rubble. Lives in Bedrock. Hell of a right hook.
