  • Alienation of Affection

    7.5
    The Good Wife excels at finding clever and debatable laws past and present to use during its cases and we got another good one tonight. You would think suing over this would be insane, but seeing the firm struggle to mount any real defense made for some compelling television. Seeing Cary help the firm, you know that is going to be a problem down the road.



    Another good episode. The show is on a roll right now.moreless

    5.0
    I used my dvr but stupid football game ran over and I only got half the episode. Why does CBS schedule their shows like this? Are they trying to kill a great show with idiotic scheduling like this? I won't bother to record again and frankly, Shameless is the same time, so the poor Good Wife will suffer in ratings. Pity.

    • Diane: Testimony is about your best memory. You go with your best memory.
      Alicia: What if it's wrong?
      Diane: Testimony isn't about right or wrong, Alicia. It's about the facts as established by your best memory of events.

    • Eli: Will they ever dump David Lee?
      Kalinda: No. He brings in too much money.
      Eli: What if he was costing too much money?
      Kalinda: Well, depends on how much money. It's not about love, It's about commerce.
      Eli: So if I made a play?
      Kalinda: It would depend on the play. But if you go after David Lee, you'd better win, or it won't be pretty.

    • Burl: Did you hire the stripper?
      David: Did I what? Did I hire this woman? Are you crazy?
      Burl: Please, answer the question.
      David: No, I did not hire the stripper.
      Burl: You perjure yourself in here, sir, it's the equivalent of perjuring yourself in court.
      David: Thank you. Go ahead and ask the question again.
      Burl: Did you hire this woman?
      David: No, I did not hire the stripper pictured in those photos. I did lose my virginity when I was 14. I do have a secret crush on Jacqueline Onassis.
      Burl: Okay, thank you.
      David: I didn't cry when the Challenger exploded.
      Burl: Thank you!
