Episode Summary

EDIT
The Out of Town Trip
Eliot, Tucker, Leslie and Sara head off to Akron to handle a case for Bob Woodson, the crooked head of a tire and rubber corporation. A mixup with their hotel forces the guys and the girls to have to share two rooms. Eliot explains to Woodson that a shareholder brought suit against him because he and his attorney, Alan Swathmore, believe Woodson misused company funds. While going over expenses he stuck the company with -- like his daughter's $80,000 wedding, a $40,000 grand piano and a $75,000 extension onto his house -- Eliot and the others see just how crooked Woodson is. Leslie questions why the firm is representing a criminal, which Sara shrugs off. Against the advice of the others, Leslie calls Mr. Marshall to tell him she's resigning. Mr. Marshall refuses to accept her resignation, but Leslie considers herself out anyway -- until Tucker convinces her to at least think about it some more. Eliot tells Woodson they're shooting for a $500,000 settlement. Swathmore arrives and has a different figure in mind: $16,000. Leslie has it out with the sleazy attorney for giving his client such a sorry settlement, and realizes she can't quit, because the world needs more caring lawyers than him.moreless

      • Surprise guest star Danny DeVito of course was a regular on Taxi. This would have been a nice opportunity for ABC to cross-pollinate this struggling series with their established (and Emmy-winning) time slot hit. But, as far as the editor can tell, they didn't take it up. And even if they did, Danny DeVito's appearance wouldn't have been a surprise then, would it?
