Episode Summary

EDIT
Danko's a Daddy
AIRED:
Johnny comes to Mr. Marshall for help, as he needs a lawyer but is poor. Mr. Marshall says they can handle his case pro bono, until Johnny says he needs one because he just found out he's a father -- which Mr. Marshall thinks will bring negative publicity. But Johnny doesn't want a lawyer to avoid responsibility, he wants a lawyer to accept responsibility. He can't, because Susan, the mother, won't let him. Eliot talks with Tucker, Leslie and Sara about Johnny's paternity case that Mr. Marshall stuck him with, hoping to pass it on to one of them. Leslie jumps at the opportunity as it'll be her first human interest suit, meets with Johnny, and says Susan's defense is that the baby's not his. Susan, and her lawyer, Mr. Simms, arrive, and Simms says they know who the father is, but won't share the wealth as the burden of proof is on Johnny -- especially so since they're going to claim the pair were nothing more than friends. Leslie refuses settlement and threatens a messy court battle, causing Susan to angrily tell off Johnny and announce she's dropping the case, it's his baby, and he can see it. As Johnny prepares for his first visitation at Susan's place, he begins to wonder if he'll be a good father and if she was right. Susan meets him at the door, then goes out shopping so she won't have to see him. Johnny doesn't know what to do with the baby. Luckily, Susan did everything already -- so all he has to do is sit and watch the kid sleep.moreless
