John complains to Melanie about Mr. Bo's seemingly obsessive behavior. Melanie promises to handle everything. I wonder if wacky hijinks will ensue. Gee, I certainly hope so. If there's one thing this show doesn't have enough of, it's wackiness.
At Ally's apartment, Larry agrees to enter the twist contest with Ally. Ally asks him for advice about her case, saying that she's in a no-win situation. Larry doesn't see it. Ally asks if he thinks it's right to hire and fire based on looks. Larry points out that Fish & Cage is known for hiring "babes." He names Ally, Ling, Nelle, and Georgia as if that's evidence. He says that all the male lawyers in town want to work for Fish & Cage because of it, and the female ones do, too, because "it's like being a Dallas Cowboys cheerleader." Ally does what the closed-captioning calls "menacing laughter." I found it more maniacal, myself. I've lost respect for Larry Paul, as well. I thought he was the good, sensitive, wise-for-his-years Holy Grail guy, but apparently he's just as shallow as every other character.
John strolls into the Unisex and opens a stall, only to find Mr. Bo on the pot. He screams and runs out into the lobby. Mr. Bo follows him. The next thing we see is Melanie yelling at John for having Mr. Bo arrested. They yell and tick unfunnily, and John says the word "poopy." Then we see that Elaine is eavesdropping outside the office door. Richard walks up and joins her for a bit. Elaine asks whether Ling's ever won any twist competitions. Richard makes a gratuitous comparison between dancing and sex. Melanie runs out of the office and John yells after her, "And I don't even have Tourette's! I was just pretending to get a little action!" Well, that's pleasant of him to say. Richard says something goofy and John gives him and Elaine very exaggerated dirty looks. He always looks incredibly unfunny and stupid when he does that.
Ally questions Jerry Hill on the stand. We learn that Jerry believes that pretty receptionists make for a happier waiting area experience. Even the female clients appreciate receptionists who look like models, says Ms. Hill. Ally narrows her eyes at this. Then the prosecuting attorney reiterates the same points, makes a pithy remark, and the scene ends. Personally, I prefer receptionists who are polite and efficient. I'm just a freak of nature, though.
