    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (2)

      • In this episode Ellenor uses sign language to communicate with the chimpanzee. In real life, before she became an actress, Camryn Manheim was a sign language interpreter at hospitals where she would be in delivery rooms while babies were born to deaf mothers and fathers.

      • This is the last time that we see "Robert G. Donnell Attorney at Law" on the firm's door.

    • QUOTES (5)

      • (During a staff meeting)
        Bobby: Ok, first, this is my firm, I started it, it will always be more mine than anybody else's. Second, I'm not about to change the way we operate, this is what it is. No management committees, no administrative partners, we see a case we want, we take it.
        Eugene: Third? There's gotta be a third.
        Bobby: Third, I need your commitment. To get it I'm willing to commit back. I'll wave by and starting today based on seniority Eugene you get twelve percent, Ellenor ten, Lindsay 8, Rebecca five. Jimmy, in another year you start at eight. Voting rights, I get two, the rest of you get one, that's as fair as I get. Lindsay, since you've been such a catalyst I'll put you in charge of drawing the papers.

      • Helen: What you're saying is if there's anything between Bobby and me you'll leave. And if there isn't you'll stay and let things fall were they would fall?
        Lindsay: Basically.
        Helen: Bobby and I are over. (watches Lindsay's reaction) You love him.

      • Eugene: Lindsay may be right. We gotta have a better plan.
        Bobby: (in anger) She has poisoned this place! Eugene, I think we should broom her. We start fresh and then we build a partnership, if that's the answer.
        Eugene: Look man, everybody here loves Lindsay. Next to Rebecca she's the closest thing this place has to a conscience. And you love her, too. Maybe more than you know.

      • Eugene: (To Bobby) Look man, everybody here loves Lindsay. Now, next to Rebecca, she's the closest thing this place has to a conscience. (Pause) And you love her too. Maybe more than you know.

      • Bobby: What the hell is going on here!?
        Lindsay: Rebecca got into a car accident. Jimmy called her old, and I think he wants to have sex with her.
        Jimmy: Not true! I'm innocent! Not true.

    • NOTES (2)

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Helen: (To Lindsay) What are you, a cross between cupid and Glenda, the good witch of the North? Helen is referencing a character from the 1939 classic, The Wizard of Oz.
