John tells Catherine that she would love him if she could forget about their past together. Later, he logs onto an computer on-line service as "Fitzgerald" and types flirtatious messages to a user named "Ella." The two seem perfect for each other and arrange a date -- only to discover that "Ella" is of course Catherine. Meanwhile, Dexter tries to convince filmmaker Spike Lee to let him cater the meals for Spike and his film crew while they are in St. Louis. When the overzealous Dexter accidentally injures Spike, who ends up in the hospital, the film company hires Dexter to impersonate Spike in the film until he recovers. Also, John represents Mahalia during a deposition with an opposing lawyer in her custody battle for her children but does more damage than good, while Mahalia almost ruins her case by dating the lawyer.
