Stupid gender roles
Repackaged. Not "comedy."

The court of Judge Albert Hall is in session. The guy who fired his female exec for being a bitch is on the stand. Nelle questions him. He sent her to the seminar to learn how to become "softer," so she would be "more liked," since some men complained about working for her. Did he ever send any men to such a seminar? No. Because he never got any complaints about them. Because it's okay for a man to be a tough boss, but not a woman? In a way. John sneaks looks at Miss Bump.
Miss Bump steps up to cross. If women are too soft, they get punished, too, yes? The guy doesn't follow. Miss Bump drapes herself on John's lap, spritzes herself with perfume, leans over him and runs her hand up his leg to illustrate ways in which women can (unfairly) use their femininity in the workplace to advantage. John asks the record to reflect that she "just grazed [his] Johnson." So, where does the witness draw the line between being too imperious and being a flirt machine? The guy says, when the woman exec is deeply hated, it's time to go to the seminar. That's all.
Ally's house. A very very very fine house. She's hired an old lady baby-sitter, who just turns up the volume on the TV when Ally tries to give her instruction on Maddie's nighttime routine. Ally asks Maddie if she's "being worse than Bonnie," what with going out all the time. Maddie says it's only two nights, and besides, "if it works out with Victor, it'll all be worth it!" But it may not work out with Victor. Maddie knows. The baby-sitter shushes them, and the doorbell buzzes. It's Victor, here for Date #4, another non-sex date. Yawn.
Nelle yells at John for allowing Miss Bump to "totally control" him in court. She needs the Biscuit: "Where's the Biscuit?!" Miss Bump walks in, saying that sounds like a fun game. Oh, and she's representing Jerome, because the firm of Cage, Fish and McBeal drove a wedge of distrust between him and his woman, Dame Edna. Oh, boy. And, she's ready to settle on the other case. The details John can hear about at her gym, at 9 PM. Then they "can put this whole matter to bed." She tilts her head at him, then spins and marches out. Nelle says they have "to get that bitch." John says no worries: "She's a bagel." Um, "toast." He meant to say "toast." The violins play, and Nelle looks at John funny.
