Episode Summary

EDIT
Public Servants
AIRED:
Helen is enraged by Richard Bay's execution and determined to punish Jackie Cahill and all other responsible parties. She makes a deal with Cahill, offering him immunity on Bay's murder plus the added bonus that she won't announce that he's a snitch and release him into the general prison population if he gives up the shooter. He agrees. After the shooter has been killed by police, Helen reneges on the deal, claiming Jackie hasn't fulfilled the terms of the agreement. Jackie's lawyer protests and drags Helen into court. Meanwhile, Rebecca and Jimmy defend a man on charges that he strangled his wife. Rebecca is adamant about the man's innocence, arguing that the only reason he's being prosecuted is because he was stunned by his wife's death and gave the investigating officer erroneous information. Rebecca and Jimmy are shocked to later learn that their client has a history of strangling both women and chickens.moreless

    • TRIVIA (2)

      • This wasn't the only time Kelley was guilty of this --- although characters from The Practice and Ally McBeal crossed over, there is an episode of Ally in which characters watch The Practice! (The scene they are watching is about Ellenor and the infamous "head in a bag)".

      • In one scene, a witness said she was watching Boston Public on television. But how could that be when characters from that series were featured in an earlier episode of this show? To The Practice characters, they would not be fictional characters on some TV show. This was really nothing more than a shameless ploy on David E. Kelly's part to promote his new series.

    • QUOTES (0)

    • NOTES (3)

      • The song sung at Richard Bay's funeral by the choir is Till We Reach That Day from the Broadway musical Ragtime, composed by Stephen C. Flaherty.

      • This is the last episode with Jason Kravitz. He is the first (and only at this point) cast member to leave The Practice.

      • In the first witness for Jimmy and Rebecca's case, there is one reference to Boston Public which has had a crossover with The Practice.
