Episode Summary

Duty Calls
From Showtime: Sifting through a pile of neglected mail, Chris discovers a final notice summoning him to jury duty. Later, during a rehearsal, the guys and Everclear's Art Alexakis discuss how to keep him out of the jury box. Clutching a note from his doctor, Chris arrives at the courthouse but brightens considerably when he meets Irina, an immigrant proudly sporting her jury ID badge. She is swept up by the opportunity to serve her new country, while Chris is swept away by her good looks. Meanwhile, Yola has a professional and personal crisis to deal with. When a new client has a heart attack while having sex in the Ikonn conference room, Yola immediately initiates damage control. But dealing with her personal feelings proves more difficult when she finds out that the man she is protecting was cheating on a devoted wife. Anson has a different set of challenges when his newest girlfriend, Sherrie, wants to make home movies of their rambunctious lovemaking. Reluctantly, at first, Anson is soon happily obsessing over his manly appearance on camera, to the detriment of his new found relationship.moreless

    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (1)

      • 1.  This was the first episode filmed for the second season,
        and as such, it's a bit out of step with the storyline of the four that would
        eventually precede it.  The first day of
        jury duty for Chris was Monday, February 4th.  According to the storyline of episode 4,
        "Wrong Number," Chris and Stephanie broke up on (or near) Valentine's
        Day, February 14th.  This
        would mean that Stephanie would have been in the picture about the time that
        Chris was serving on the jury.  While
        it's likely that Stephanie could have been elsewhere during this one week out
        of Chris' life, his attempts to impress Irina would have been completely
        inappropriate to the storyline of the first four episodes; a storyline that
        reached its climax the following week.
