  • The fallout continues over Bobby's tactics in the previous episode,Jimmy tries his first case,Eleanor is sued by a disgruntled ex-boyfriend & Lindsay has the 'date-rape' drug used on her.

    9.5
    Action-packed is a term which can more often than not be used to describe most episodes of 'The Practice' & this episode has plenty of court room action,plenty of dramatic moments & plenty of gritty and intense confrontations.



    There are standout performances from Kelli Williams (Lindsay),Dylan McDermott (Bobby) & Linda Hunt (Judge Zoey Hiller) as Lindsay discovers a former boyfriend uses the the 'date-rape' drug to enhance their sexual dalliance,as Bobby rages after Judge Hiller over her sentancing in the Wiggins case and as Judge Hiller turns the tables on Bobby.



    It all adds up to another exceptional episode of this fine series as creator David E Kelley's particular,and indeed sometimes perculiar,emphases slowly but surely begin to surface and make their mark.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Vogelman: Imagine, imagine what it feels like to be the nerd that can't even get the fat girl by the punchbowl.

    • Mr. Holt: Oh, please, that kind of discrimination goes on all the time. The only difference here is, I admit it. Harry is a negative guy who looks like an ape. And I don't want him working for my company. There's a juror over there, I won't say which one who looks like a possum. I wouldn't hire him either.
      Judge McGough: I'm terribly sorry, but I think it's time for another break.

    • Jimmy: I tell ya, I was nervous. I think the defendant blew it though when he called one of the jurors a possum. You can't predict how things are going to go, but insinuating that one of the jurors is a member of the rodent family is not an accepted tactic.

    • Papp: Is it a good sign that they came back this quick?
      Jimmy: It's a very good sign if we win, but not if we lose.
      Papp: That was helpful.

    • Jimmy: Objection! That's a legal conclusion.
      Judge McGough: No, it isn't. But I'll sustain the objection anyway.
      Jimmy: On what grounds?
      Judge McGough: I just ruled in your favor, counsel.

    • Lindsay: I know myself, Rebecca. I'm not capable of good sex.
