  • A good Jimmy Berluti story and the introduction of a new charcter.

    8.8
    The main plot line is the Jimmy Berluti story. Rosanna Arquette does a great job as Brenda Miller the high school beauty queen that Jimmy was in love with in high school. It’s obvious from the first that Jimmy stills loves her but remembers that he was the fat nerd that she would have nothing to do with. She was friends with Jimmy because her brother was a good friends of Jimmys in high school. It soon becomes clear that Brenda is a flawed woman and very selfish but Jimmys love makes hime blind to it. In a poignant momet discussing his feelings for Brenda with Bobby he tells him “Men like me don’t get women like that” It was a very emotional scene.

    The Eugene story line has Eugene acting his self righteous best when a old friend comes to him with a “minor” problem. One of his employees is suing him for sexual harassment for wearing one of her bras. This could have been a good case for Alan Shore later on, but I digress.

    In this episode has the first appearance of Chlyer Leigh as Claire Wyatt who interviews for a job at Lindsay's newly formed law firm.moreless
  • The best episode of the season, because of the writing for the plotline not mentioned in the episode summary.

    9.0
    Eugene defends an aquaintance who is being sued by an employee for sexual harassment and mental anguish. Eugene assigns Jamie to assist. She feels like he just wants a female lawyer at the table; he tells her maybe he wants her there to learn something.



    The employee will settle, for a price, in exchange for not making public some embarrassing information about Eugene's client -- in essence, blackmail. Eugene's well-written response to her, to which the episode title refers, is eloquent and thought-provoking, not only to the employee, but (hopefully) to us as viewers as well. Add to that the speech Jamie later makes to Eugene about how he demonstrates honor in a profession so often portrayed as lacking it, and what you find is that even in its seventh season, this show's writers can still make a statement through their characters and plotlines.moreless
