  • Here Comes the Judge

    Another strong episode here. At times a little bit slow moving, but they had an intriguing case, which led to a case within a case. Judd Hirsch played the role well, and let's hope after this appearance, and his work on Damages, he stays in the legal vein for future roles.

    The show has direction here and strong writing and that makes every episode worth watching, and every episode a little bit different.moreless

    Fantastic episode, what kind of guy is Kalinda's husband, no need to beat up Carey like that.

    Although being in a relationship myself like Kalinda's i sort of get it & what the attraction is, deep down there is love there. Twisted as it is.

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Diane: What else did your friend say about Creary?
      Cary: You mean my ex-friend? Well, since Creary's divorce, he's been struggling with alcohol.
      Diane: Going to AA?
      Cary: Yes. Why?
      Will: Are we sure we want to go there?
      Diane: I don't know. If you go nuclear, don't leave missiles in your silo.

    • Eli: Why aren't you reading your e-mails? I sent you three e-mails today.
      Alicia: I am reading my e-mails.
      Eli: Just not mine?
      Alicia: Well, I always know when it's important, you'll seek me out, and... here you are.

    • Laura: But it's no secret you've had troubles this past year. You were suspended for stealing money from a client. Is that correct?
      Will: Yes, but I replaced it.
      Laura: Judge Creary called you a thief and a liar. Can you really say those characterizations are inaccurate?
      Diane: Objection, Your Honor. The question is whether or not Judge Creary showed bias by making these comments, not whether or not they were true.
      Judge Dunaway: Sustained.
      Laura: Wow, that's some defense. Our lawyer may be a thief and a liar, but the judge really can't say it.

    • Alicia: If I make a motion to substitute, Your Honor, then it is no longer in your hands, and you must transfer this matter to another judge.
      Judge Creary: You don't know what you've just done.
      Alicia: We do, Your Honor, but you've given us no other choice.
      Judge Creary: Everybody has a choice. Everybody. You're fishing for a mistrial here, and you won't get it. You lose this motion, and I'll be right back here to judge this case.
      Alicia: We understand that.
      Judge Creary: So I'll give you one last chance to step back over that line.
      Alicia: I'm sorry, Your Honor, but my motion has been made. We move for a hearing into your bias against Mr. Gardner and our client.

    • Will: Your Honor, if you believe that, you need to recuse yourself.
      Judge Creary: Ooh! I love this one! With his ethics! Love the ethics, Will. Great for a disbarred lawyer. Mm. Bribing judges and stealing. You know, if it was up to me, you wouldn't be allowed to practice law ever again.
      Giada: Maybe the thing is to agree to disagree.
      Judge Creary: Yeah. Yeah.
