Episode Summary

EDIT
The Out-of-Towners
AIRED:
Heeding the request of counsel to deliver one of her "rants" at a sentencing hearing, Amy lectures a young drug dealer whose mother has made tremendous sacrifices to provide him with a better life; much to Peter's dismay, Maxine accepts a date from an attractive man she meets at the diner; Amy gets "backwater detail" subbing for another judge, and travels with Bruce to a small town to hear a case centered on the misdiagnosis and overmedication of its teenage boys; as her abductor's case comes to trial, Lisa and Vincent argue when her fears for the possibility of acquittal, and thus her safety, increase; pending the outcome of an investigation, Susie is back at work after a one week paid suspension and, over Maxine's objections, sets in motion a chain of events which eventually leads to the death of a young mother; Amy and Bruce have divergent reactions when confronted with intolerance during their trip; Maxine unsuccessfully tries to resign, and ends up being blackmailed into accepting the position of D.C.F. supervisor until a replacement for Susie can be found.moreless

  • Amy and Bruce have to deal with discrimination. It is interesting to see both of them react. Maxine finally has a chance at romance. It is funny to see Peter act so childish about it.moreless

    This episode does not show small towns in a good light. While metropolitan areas may have more cultural activities, smart people with current thinking do live in small towns. Amy is right to be insulted. This show has tones of "Driving Miss Daisy."



    It is good to see Vincent moving forward in his life. His sense of humor is back and he is considerate towards Donna.



    Throughout the series, Amy has desires for Bruce. It is interesting to see them on a business trip together. Why does Peter have such an issue with Maxine dating? He is the oldest and has seen her suffer alone long enough. She deserves some happiness.moreless
