  • the case with Arthur continues, Ellen's fiance gets an admirer, Greg lies to Katie and makes her believe she is the break in the case.

    7.0
    first of all i have to say when Patty asked what the ding-dong was and said it tasted like a ho-ho, i laughed. i thought it was very amusing, so i'm suprised i didn't laugh harder, because i wanted to. she does have her humorous side i suppose. however, she didn't seem up to jokes when she found out she couldn't talk to her son for at least another week. i wonder what's going on there...i'm going to predict that her son outsmarted her once again and found a way to escape the place she sent him to. maybe he blackmailed someone with money to let him go? not a smart move by katie to lie about the drugs, abortion and rehab to patty, but why she keeps protecting Greg is beyond me. i can't believe the little snake screwed her over. but then again, it is a drama...so he makes katie look like an idiot, in which case she takes off and winds up on the couch of the guy that was blackmailing Greg? what the hell? apparently she does remember him, whoever he is. i'm getting pretty bored of seeing Ellen sitting in that interview room at the precinct. at least have her lawyer come get her and bring her somewhere else for a change of scenery.moreless
  • Hands down, best episode yet!

    9.5
    Where do I begin? This episode had me on the edge of my seat the whole way through. As usual the acting is superb and there are more twists than the spaghetti junction! This episode ended on a big cliff hanger and I can't wait to watch the next episode. This sums up to me the series: pivotal, exciting, edge of your seat stuff! Once again this episode has been directed amazingly: there is a wide variety of camera angles and the musical ending at the end of the show was inspired. Although slightly disturbing there is a great juxtaposition of Katie laughing with her brother to her crying over his dead body.



    I highly recommend this episode!moreless
  • Katie identifies the man in the limo with Frobisher. Arthur Fisk and Patty Hewes ask her to testify.

    8.4
    I liked this episode but not as much as others. I was expecting there to be a big surprise at the end, but there was none. The episode was not boring, but it just didn't have enough action or twists and turns. The episode was well written, I will give it that. With Ms. Hewes's joke "This tastes like a ho ho." I laughed a little. Also, when we find out that (SPOILERS) Patty Hewes asked Katie to be someone testify, she knew that she was lying, to make Frobisher think Patty had nothing. We also got to see what happened on that one night stand. I like the episode but I didn't love it.moreless

      • Katherine Connor
      • Larry Popler
      • Karen Gonzalez
      • All members of the Administrative Committee of the Frobisher Enterprises Corporation Pension Plan

    • Episode Title: It's a line delivered by Patty Hewes. Ellen and Katie are working on Katie's testimony and eating Ding Dongs. Patty tries one and says, "it tastes like a ho-ho."

  • QUOTES (9)

    • Gregory: That's Arthur Frobisher. The guy's got more money than Trump.
      Katie: You think that guy eats beef?
      Gregory: I think that guy eats small cows for breakfast.

    • Gregory: Ah, you're a cook.
      Katie: We prefer to say 'chef.'
      Gregory: I'm a waiter. I guess that means I'm beneath you.
      Katie: Not yet.

    • (talking about testifying against Arthur Frobisher)
      Katie: I have risked everything I have to put this guy away, and now you're just gonna...
      Gregory: Going to be a selfish prick? Yeah. And you should, too.

    • David: (talking on the mobile phone) You farted in your sleep last night.
      Ellen: David! You're on speaker.
      Katie: Classic!

    • Roger Kastle: Ms. Connor, would you characterize your life as one big blur of narcotics and intercourse?
      Katie: Would you characterize yourself as an asshole?!

    • Ray: If these next few questions make you blush, Miss Connor, I apologize.
      Katie: To screw.
      Ray: I'm sorry?
      Katie: That's why I was in an empty parking lot in the middle of the night. And later on a couch and then on the floor. Do you find cocaine is like Viagra? Or are you more of a tantric breathing kind of a guy, like Sting? If these past few answers make you blush, Mr. Fiske, I apologize.

    • (after Ray Fiske's deposition of Katie Connor)
      Ray: You hear that, Patty? That's the sound of the zeroes dropping off of Mr. Frobisher's revised offer.

    • Katie: You know, you are not mad that I lied. You are just pissed that I got caught and made you look bad.
      Ellen: I only ever wanted the truth.
      Katie: No, Ellen, all you ever wanted was to impress Patty Hewes.

    • Patty: Ray Fiske is a brilliant lawyer who made us look very foolish today. It happens. I understand how it must hurt right now... what happened with Katie... but... there's a very important lesson to be learned from all this.
      Ellen: Which is?
      Patty: Trust... no one.

  • ALLUSIONS (2)

    • David: I was thinking maybe the Cassavetes retrospective at Film Forum.

      John Cassavetes is an American actor and filmmaker known for directing and producing independent films, one of which (A Woman Under the Influence, 1974) earned him an Academy Award nomination (for Best Director) along with her actress wife Gena Rowlands, who played the title role in the film.

    • Katie: Or are you more of a tantric breathing kind of a guy, like Sting?

      Sting is a multiple Grammy award-winning rock musician who is popular for, other than composing and performing his hit songs, being a champion of tantric sex.
