Episode Summary

EDIT
The First Thing You Do...
AIRED:
Riley Kessler, Warren Harrison, Miles Lawton and Egg Ross move into a San Francisco house, sharing the rent while they work as first-year lawyers at Hoberman, Spain, McPherson and O'Donnell. Anna Weller and Miles' past failed romance starts to show signs of starting back up, but their personalities leave them both arguing all over again.

Riley is given the adoption case of a black woman, Ms. Spears, convicted of second-degree murder and doesn't want her infant daughter, Marissa, to be adopted by a white couple, Alison & Jack Mitchell. In the Judge's chambers the Judge tells both sides to come to a solution on their own or he will be forced to make one. After leaving the chambers Riley goes home to see her interracial parents. When neither side comes to a conclusion, the Judge decides Ms. Spears was not completely informed and will take the baby from the Mitchells and place her in a foster home. In the end, Ms. Spears agrees to let Alison and Jack have her baby.

Anna, Warren, Miles and Egg help their boss, Sam O'Donnell, by handling his ex-wife's, Frances O'Donnell, latest lawsuit, against Dr. Heineman who left her at the altar. While Miles, Warren and Egg are at dinner Miles suddenly starts to choke and falls onto the floor - which brings Dr. Heineman over and Miles serves him a subpoena. Eventually, Frances drops the case against Dr. Heineman.moreless
