  • What an tension building

    8.9
    Wow.. I most say. Another amazing episode and the way the story is just getting more deeper and deeper.. all those little secrets coming out and those developments.



    First of all, the case.. and how Alicia dealt with it.. I mean, she really wanted just to get past it and that conversation she had with Kalinda.. For sure, Kalinda was the one to get most developments on this episode.. and what kind of developments. All those things, hints about her past and the way she is playing.. the question is: whose side she is on? Probably she is on her side.. but who she is working for..Who outbid her.. And the developments on family side.. I am quite sure both of those girls (the sitter and that blond one) will have their own agenda or I am just too suspicious? It's building tension... A lot of it..moreless
  • Jackie has a stroke.

    7.0
    Aw man, I wish death on no living human being, but I think a lot of us were secretly hoping that TV character Jackie Florrick was killed off tonight. For every time she sprays some annoying mother with a hose, there's about eight times where she just irritates the you know what out of me.



    The episode was pretty solid, but I don't think this was one of the better cases the show has done. It was essentially The Kalinda Show today, and while Archie Panjabi can be good at what she does here, she should never be the central focus of a program.moreless

  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Glenn Childs: I don't think you understand how exposed you are from your past work with the state's attorney's office. Subpoenas stopped at Florrick only because I wanted them stopped at Florrick.
      Kalinda: You're trying to tie me to his scandal.
      Glenn Childs: You are tied to his scandal. I am offering to keep the record sealed if you give me what I want, that's all.

    • Alicia: You can't be talking with the mother right now.
      Dr. Wesley: Why not?
      Alicia: Your patient overdosed from pills you prescribed. And there is some question about the dosage. Even a simple expression of sympathy could be construed as an admission of guilt.
      Dr. Wesley: Then it's an admission. That's my patient. I'm their family doctor.
      Alicia: And I'm your lawyer. If I was sick right now, I would do exactly as you told me to do. But you're in trouble. And I need you to do exactly as I tell you.

    • Peter: Childs tapped my home. We don't want to subpoena those tapes unless we can preview them.
      Kalinda: Without him knowing.
      Peter: Mm-hmm. So, I think you should accept Childs' job offer. Work for him. And for us. That should be a familiar feeling for you.
      Kalinda: I always did like you.

    • Cary: Are you seeing someone?
      Kalinda: (she stays focused on the people they are watching) Okay, when they go into the locker room, don't approach them. Just watch the exchange and I'll make the approach later.
      Cary: I'm sorry, did you hear my question? Do you have a boyfriend?
      Kalinda: Do I have a boyfriend?
      Cary: Yeah.
      Kalinda: No.

    • Alicia: I wanted his problems out of the office. What does that say about me?
      Kalinda: It says you're becoming a lawyer.

    • (to Molly, the babysitter she just fired)
      Alicia: Let me give you a little lesson for your next job, the next time you wanna talk to your charges about sexual transmitted diseases, talk to the parents first.
