  • I Fought The Law

    7.5
    This season The Good Wife began with a different kind of case, and one that has been in the news to some extent with police abuse. I thought they reached a little bit when making the cop a bad guy, as he did not do anything wrong initially, and Zach was reaching a bit to make that conclusion.



    I would've liked more scenes dealing with Peter's campaign and his rival, but this was still a very good hour of TV.moreless

    • Peter: You have a problem with my stand on pensions, you come to me.
      Phil: Your son was pulled over. That's all. I'm following the law.
      Peter: That's right. Same way I will with your son at the University of Chicago.
      Phil: So we're threatening each other now?
      Peter: No. I'm threatening you. And here's a handy little cheat sheet for the next time you forget. I'm the state's attorney of a county that actually matters, jackass!

    • Peggy: So, I'd like to ask you this, Alicia, why do you stay with your husband? Why not divorce? Other wives who've been betrayed like you have divorced.
      Alicia: Because I don't want to.
      Peggy: Isn't that setting a bad example to women everywhere to be such a doormat?
      Eli: Peggy!
      Alicia: I like my husband. I respect him. He's flawed, but I've grown to accept that. And I committed to a marriage. I don't like breaking commitments.
      Peggy: Isn't that dragging women back to the '50s? Women have all the obligation, men have all the freedom.
      Alicia: I don't know. This isn't about women or the '50s. This is about me.
