  • Disappointed!

    1.0
    This is one of my favorite shows; however, I am very disappointed they wasted time one this issue. I will not stop watching it however, I refused to watch the full episode and deleted it from my DVR Que. Get back on track and stop with the "social statement" flag waving.

    What can i say a brilliant very well written episode, well acted by all concerned, What a Cast of Guest Stars, every episode of season 4 just gets better & better, not disappointed at all. This

    is why i love this show, Alicia will definitely get back together with Peter, loved the ending. Everybody has a family like that absolute entertainment.

    A really good case here, and two good performances from the guest stars as the opposing (well, maybe not in Alicia's mind) lawyers. Then the scenes with their complicated extended family was not the norm for this show, but definitely entertaining TV as well.



    This was a fun episode of The Good Wife.

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Veronica: She's never gonna divorce you, you know.
      Peter: Hi, Veronica. It's nice to see you, too.
      Veronica: She's a good person. You're exploiting her.
      Peter: How? By not divorcing her?
      Veronica: Yes. You're leading her on. Let her go.
      Peter: What if I don't want to let her go?
      Veronica: Well, then you're just being selfish.

    • Jackie: I'm so glad you decided to visit. Zach and Grace were wondering about their other grandmother.
      Veronica: I heard you nearly died, Jackie.
      Jackie: A stroke from helping out with the kids, by myself.
      Veronica: Well, at least you got a young companion out of it. How much does he charge?
      Jackie: $40 an hour. You should consider it. You won't have to go begging for male attention.
      Veronica: Yes. Paying for it seems to run in your family.

    • David: This is your second marriage?
      Veronica: Third.
      David: Really?
      Veronica: I never found anyone to satisfy me, I guess. They either bore me or die.

    • Alicia: Objection. Counselor is testifying.
      Judge Friend: Uh, ma'am, Mr. Breslow questioned the witness. Only he is allowed to object. Mr. Breslow, do you have an objection?
      Breslow: Uh, no, Your Honor. This is too entertaining.

    • Judge Friend: Is the government fine with the addition of Mr. Breslow?
      Bucky: Of course, Your Honor. As long as our underdog status is now formalized.
      Breslow: (sarcastically) The United States as underdog. I think that's the first time since the Revolutionary War.
