Ally walks into her office to find a cute little urchin sitting in her chair. He's wearing a knit cap, too. Aw, that's so cute. The only thing that could make him cuter would be saucily precocious comments. The little boy sits behind Ally's candy bowl with the Cathy-esque heart on it and says that he wants to sue his parents for splitting up. He says "bene-fishy" instead of "beneficiary." Aw! That's SO CUTE! Can you guess what the boy's name is? I bet you can. It's Sam Paul.
In the conference room, Nelle, John, and a lawyer played by the guy who played Jim Walsh on Beverly Hills 90210 ["James Eckhouse" -- Wing Chun] listen to Sam Adams and Ms. Cortez argue in Spanish. Oh, those hot-blooded Latins are so fiery-tempered, aren't they? John screams, "Dejame montar el cabalito!" in a very Richard Simmons-y way. That means, "Let me ride the pony." He apologizes and explains that he learned that one bit of Spanish from a nanny. Why is John on this case, since he obviously can't behave professionally around Nelle? Ms. Cortez avers that no one can stop her from doing whatever dance moves she wants. She will see Nelle in court. She also calls Nelle a fool, since she sees that things have gotten personal between her and Sam Adams. Looks of chagrin abound as Ms. Cortez stalks out of the room.
Larry questions Sam (Paul, not Adams) heatedly as Ally watches, fingers her face, and mugs non-stop. Sam describes how his mother tucks him in every night and then goes to her room and cries. Sam cries, too. I'm sorry, but didn't Larry break up with Sam's mother years ago? And didn't he get married to someone else in the interim? Have Sam and Jamie been crying all this time? If so, that's pretty sad.
Sam and Ally wait while Larry argues with Jamie on his cell phone in the other room. Ally touches her mouth throughout this scene, too. Sam comments that he expected Ally to be younger. He estimates her age to be fifty. He asks whether she loves Larry, whether she has kids, and whether her biological clock is all ticked out. Ally makes her usual angry/disgusted face. Jokes about women being touchy about their age are perennially funny, aren't they? Oh, wait -- no, they aren't.
Cindy and her fiancé meet with Richard and Ling. Cindy's fiancé points out that Vermont now recognizes same-sex marriages. Richard says that even homophobes like himself wanted Vermont to rule thusly. He wanted all the gays to move to Vermont because of the thick, wooded areas. Ling sighs at this, probably because it makes no sense at all -- not even in a twisted, homophobic way. Cindy's boyfriend asks why she hired Richard. Cindy says that Richard won her last case, and that if they can convert him, well....Richard asks, "Convert me into what?" I ask, "What are these people talking about?"
