In the lobby, Ling once again sees her officemates in fast motion as we hear the song they play at the circus during the tiger act. Then she sees Jackson moving in slow motion as that other famous song plays -- you know, the song that always plays when lovers run towards each other across a field. Sorry, but I don't know the names of these songs. I don't even understand how other people know them. How do you know? Do you buy the Famous Instrumentals collection from Time Life for $19.95 and then study the liner notes? Do your high-school bands print up half-time programs? I'm horribly sheltered. I wouldn't even know what "The Little Spanish Flea" was if it weren't for The Simpsons. The Wicked Witch song plays as Ling runs off. Elaine and Ally look on, and then John calls Ally to his office.
John wants Ally to give him tips on how to best Larry in court because, as he confides, his case is low on merits. After pretending to protest for a while, Ally tells him that "with Larry, it's all about rhythm." She explains that Larry's strength lies in his "fast patter." John shows appreciation for this treachery.
In his office, Richard watches a video featuring Cindy Margolis. I'm guessing it's a slow day for the firm. Cindy is saying, "You're watching In Your Dreams, with me, Cindy Margolis. Michelle Garris is an aspiring actress who emailed my website, asking for advice on how to break into Tinseltown." Richard smiles as he watches, but I think it's because he's pleased by Cindy's cleavage and not because he's amused by "emailed my website." Ling struts in, turns off the TV, throws her weirdly stocking-ed leg in front of Richard's face, and coos, "Do my knee. Just do...it." Richard blows on his fingers to prep, but then says, "No! I won't be used." Pushing his face into her bosom, Ling says, "You do my knee, and I'll give you hair." I think she meant that she would fondle his head. "Ow...you're pinching my spinal...my spinal cord," Richard mutters into her chest before she roughly shoves his head away and stands up. She angrily tells him that they're fated to be together, and that they shouldn't deny it. "Oh, you don't like denial? Big fan of honesty?" Richard asks. "Excellent. Let's be honest with each other." Ling says, "Gotta go..." Richard lays it on the line. He had fun in L.A., and Ling can't stop thinking about Jackson. He points out that ever since Jackson was hired, Ling has been shaving her legs in the morning instead of at night. He tells her, "Go to Jackson. He's the man you lather up for." I titter a little. I think this show can survive the loss of Robert Downey Jr. if they utilize more Richard/Ling banter and less Ally/John whining.
