Episode Summary

EDIT
Double Indignity
AIRED:
Max takes a job as a telemarketer, unaware that her sleazy boss is a scam artist who sells subliminal tapes that do not contain subliminal messages. She is arrested while talking on the phone with Khadijah. Meanwhile, Overton sets up surveillance and begins recording all the girls' phone calls in the hopes of catching a prank caller. When the public defender assigned to represent Max proves to be woefully incompetent, she decides to represent herself. She points out that the boss was the only person to run, and cites this as evidence that the employees didn't realize they were committing a crime. She adds that she was making a personal call at the time that the police raided the building, and proves this through Overton's tape. The judge dismisses the case, and all the other employees ask Max to represent them. The judge recommends Max to the public defender's office, which hires her immediately. Tag: Identity of prank caller revealed.moreless

      • Max: Hey doc, give me a cigarette.
        Khadijah: Max that job hasn't got you smoking has it?
        Max: Oh, no, no, no, no. I'm just holding it for effect. It completes he pathetic image.

      • Khadijah: What is all this?
        Overton: I'm using modern technology to track down you crank caller. We got the reel-to-reel, we got a voice stress analyzer, and your standard oral spectrograph.
        Khadijah: Well that will all come in handy when your ready to build your time traveling De Lorean.
        Overton: No you need a Flux Capacitor for that.

      • Max: My problem is, the only thing that I'm trained to do is to be a lawyer. Now come on, look at the ads: "Bookkeeper--basic accounting. Secretary--shorthand. Word processor--eighty words per minute." Synclaire is more qualified to get a job than I am.
        Khadijah: No she's not.

      • Synclaire: Max, you're gonna be a public defender. You're gonna work for the people.
        Max: Freak the people. I got a job!

      • Max: I got a citation for littering and I was hit on by a flasher.
        Kyle: That's a step up for you.
        Max: That's a step up from you.

      • Max: You think I like waking up in the morning and hanging around here all day?
        Regine: You mean you hate it, too?

      • Max: Ooh! Check me out, people. I'm free.
        Kyle: Well, you get what you pay for.

      • Max (on the phone): Is that right? Is that right? Is that right?
        Kyle: Is that right?
        Overton: Hell, I guess that's right.

      • Overton: After getting a glance at the inner workings of our legal system, I realized that Matlock pretty much tells it the way it is.

      • Fred: Your Honor, I contend that Miss Maxine Shaw was under the influence of this svengali, this mastermind of control, Larry Friedlander.
        Larry: Oh, stop!

      • Max: I think I'm about to be handcuffed. And I don't mean that in a good way.

      • Larry: Let me explain something to you. This is not a highly skilled job. Neurosurgery--that's a highly skilled job. This--not so much.

      • Synclaire: I was just trying to be friendly and encouraging, but if you want the straight dope, Miss Missy, you're in deep yogurt! (to Overton) I didn't wanna go there, man.

      • Regine: Says here designers predict wider lapels next year. I don't know why I even read the paper.

      • Overton: Don't despair, Max. Hell, it's like Batman.
        Regine: Here comes another philosophical gem.
        Overton: Well, Batman doesn't sit around complaining about how diabolical the Joker is. Or how distracting Catwoman is in a skin-tight patent leather unitard…No! No, he gets off his bat behind and kicks some arch-villain boo-tay.
        Max: I have hit rock bottom, because that made complete sense to me. Overton's right. I'm not going out like that. I'm not going out without a fight.
        Khadijah: Wow, Overton. Your bat speech really fired her up.
        Overton: Well, we can learn from our little animated friends. Like when I was a kid, I used to like Fat Albert. Then I thought, "Well, hey, who's gonna get more women, a superhero with a sweet ride or a 200-pound seventh grader?"

    • NOTES (1)

      • Tag: Khadijah finally speaks to the prank caller. The caller tells her that his name is Andy and that the police won't do anything about his calls because they work for his father, who is the mayor. This implies that the prank caller is Andrew Giuliani, the son of Rudy Giuliani, then mayor of New York City.
