Mrs. Schoefield is on the witness stand telling everyone about the "nice, hot" shower she was allegedly taking while her husband was killed. We get to see her in said shower. Ally imagines herself in the shower. Ugh. If I have to see Ally wet one more time this season...The scene's in black and white and Ally's hair looks the same as it does in the courtroom. They give us a close-up of that protruding bone at the tip of Ally's nose. SHRIEK! Oops...sorry. DEK couldn't even spring for a decent-looking shower curtain. Mrs. Schoefield gets to the part of the story where "suddenly the curtain was pulled back." Ally imagines a hooded person wielding a knife, complete with Psycho-rip-off music, and screams her head off right there in the court. Nelle, can your neurologist friend fit in another appointment today? We get roughly three thousand reaction shots and Ally apologizes. I tell you, every single time she screams to get attention, I laugh harder and harder. There's nothing cuter than a self-centered woman who thinks she's funny and can't stand for others to be in the limelight, is there? Mrs. Schoefield claims that the masked intruder ran away. She allegedly called 911 and then found her dead husband. She claims she heard someone run down the stairs and clap four times. She feels it necessary to illustrate with "four crisp claps" of her own. Paul immediately mimics her, and everyone listens to the oboe play that song "He Must Have Done It, He's Obviously Retarded."
In one of those courthouse side rooms, Benny and Ally explain to Paul that he didn't make bail and will have to stay in jail. Paul is all confused, asking when they'll hear the verdict. Ally cocks her head to the side and makes a face that is supposed to be sympathetic. It comes off more like, "I wonder if he's available."
Paul's defense team and the free freaks are walking down the sidewalk. Matthew asks John why he didn't cross-examine. John says he didn't want to give the prosecution any clues about where they were going with their defense. Don't worry, John...I think they could see that you're going nowhere. Matthew inexplicably compliments Ally's scream. Benny expresses concern over Benny's having to remain in jail. Richard wonders who else would have done it. Mindy thinks it was Mrs. Schoefield. She reveals that there was talk that Mr. Schoefield was having an affair. The word "affair" echoes ridiculously. Hey, Mindy, way to wait until the last minute with the crucial information, there. Hey, John, way to be the crappiest lawyer I've ever seen. Somebody call Ben Matlock. He'd have it all sewn up in thirty minutes.
