Episode Summary

EDIT
Defenseless
AIRED:

Harm's skills as a lawyer are challenged when he defends a female ensign who claims she murdered an officer because her "instincts" told her he meant to hurt her. The ensign claims that when the officer entered her apartment on false pretenses, she felt threatened by him and killed in self-defense. Though the defense is decidedly thin -- no weapon was even found on the man's body -- Mac and Harm decide to stick with the case and are determined to help the ensign remember forgotten details of the event.

  • not the best i've seen.

    7.0
    Defenseless : season three episode 13, not one of the best in my opinion. Dont get me wrong i love JAG, but the main storyline of Harms defense case isnt that great.. just my opinion.

    The storyline I do like is the Bud - Harriet relationship, the scene in the hotel room makes me laugh even after seeing it a million times!

    Furthermore, the scene the next day where Mac 'interigates' Bud, accusing him and harriet of sleeping together! So cute!



    Reasonable episode when referring to the relationship between specific charecters, but not the best defense case, after all the accused was in fact 'defenseless' and I dont particuarly like the way the episode ended.moreless

    • Mac: (explaining why "women's intuition" is a valid defense) Sir, when we leave this building tonight we'll do it in very different ways. You'll get in your car and drive off. I'll walk out and pay attention to shadows and dark corners. The keys will be in my hand for quick access to my car, and in case I need them for a weapon. I don't give it a second thought because it's standard operating procedure every time I leave every building. Women's intuition isn't a joke, it's a matter of survival! And if it weren't for her instincts, Ensign Lane would be the one who's dead.

    • Mac: (after the Admiral ignores her again) You know, this sucks!
      Bud: Ma'am?
      Mac: I feel like I'm fifteen years old again, getting grounded for stealing cars and drinking! (Bud gives her a startled look) If that's the sort of thing one might get grounded for as a teenager.

    • Harm: (referring to the Ensign) I'm going to have a psychological evaluation done.
      Mac: Since when does a woman have to be crazy to shoot a man? (Harm gives her a dirty look)
