Later, Richard throws a tantrum, and Ling explains that she was only trying to help. John walks up to apologize. Richard calls him "Judith." John corrects him, and Richard pushes the Judas like boys do when they want to start a fight on the playground. John pushes him back. Richard is flustered. Ling still doesn't care. It would have been nice if Richard had beat the crap out of John, but I guess that can't happen. The McBealian Universe would implode without the man created in the image of David E. Kelley.
Ally's asking Mark about the best kiss he ever received. It was from his teacher, when he was in ninth grade. He tells how she kissed all the students goodbye on the last day of school. She knew that Mark had a crush on her. She squeezed his hand and slipped him the tongue. After she kissed him, "she gave [him] this look -- a knowing look -- and said..." And then Larry and his client walk in, and we don't get to hear the rest of Mark's story. Ally rudely walks away from Mark and over to Larry, who tells her, "Once again, do not get agitated. Let me do the talking. You have to stay quiet." Ally nods complacently then realizes that she's an idiot. "That's three for me," says Larry.
In the conference room, Larry tries to get Kimmy to admit that Mr. Peterson was right in not considering her for partner. John fires up his annoying water-pouring act. Horns play and bells toll as if he's unveiling some brilliant strategy. Reaction shots abound. Ally smiles and wriggles in her chair. John asks Mr. Peterson if he wants his firm to be perceived as a company that likes its women loose. He gets all up in Mr. Peterson's face as he makes this point. Larry rolls his chair over to them and tells John, "Can you please lean back? We can see the bristle on your lip." John twitches said lip and gives Ally a dirty look.
Outside the office, John yells at Ally for telling Larry about the bristle thing. Richard sticks out his foot and trips John. John falls to the floor. "Demonstration," Richard says. Wait...I didn't see that. Can he do it again?
At The Bar, Renee sings in front of Vonda on the stage. She's wearing a low-cut v-neck that shows her very large breasts to...um...advantage? She has some white strings or threads hanging from the middle of her bosom. When she moves, the tops of her breasts jiggle like Jell-O. Sorry -- I hate to use that cliché, but it's a cliché for a reason. Renee's breasts are gelatinous in this scene. Ally and Larry dance and mildly argue about Kimmy's case. Ally changes the subject, trying to be casual as she asks if it's their second date. "Ally! It's our fourth!" says Larry. Ally quickly corrects him, showing that she's been obsessing over the subject. Then she calls the score: four cold-blooded disses for Larry, none for her.
