The three men fall in line and start doing John's stupid condor dance and other, even stupider dances. Like I said -- I didn't want to laugh. Taye Diggs and RDJ cracked me up with their facial expressions, though. The scene's shark is jumped when Ally comes in and husks, "It's about time." Then the dancing becomes too silly, and I roll my eyes into the next scene.
Courtroom. John gives a supposed-to-be-good closing about the fear of the unknown when it comes to cloning. He throws out the old cloning-a-heart-and-saving-a-life chestnut. Larry takes off his glasses for full effect; he talks about the ethics of cloning the dead and asks where we draw the line. He says something about fathering Barry White's twin brother, and John is totally pimped. Judge Walsh rules against John's client, even though Larry's tie is ugly as hell. After it's all over, Larry tells John, "I don't want a rematch," and shakes his hand. Aww...whatever.
Song Montage. Vonda sings "Only You." Her singing still annoys me after all these years. Jackson walks up to Ling at The Bar's bar and asks if she goes there often. She laughs at his terrible opening line and then they dance. Larry checks his email on his laptop while Ally rubs his feet, looking alternately disgusted and smirky. Jackson and Ling dance some more.
The Sidewalk. The song montage which usually wraps up the show is brusquely cast aside as Richard asks John whether he wants to go to The Bar. John wants to go home and be alone with Barry. Richard excuses the insanity, expressing jealousy over John's ability to "conjure something up when the real world disappoints." Talk about your déjà-vu bygones, huh? John should have said, "Why, that's exactly what I told Ally when she was hallucinating Al Green last season. Or maybe someone else told her that. I don't know -- the themes on this show are so repetitive that I forget." Richard and John do the Stayin' Alive strut down the sidewalk, forcing me to give this episode a grade of C+ instead of B as the screen fades to black.
Next week: Ally whines about her birthday. Sting, Paul Reubens, Cheri Oteri, and Cindy Margolis do cameos.
