At the morning meeting, Ally explains that she's being sued by Kimmy Bishop. Richard remembers Kimmy from law school. She had "stones of her own," he says. Mark walks in and makes an annoyed face. Richard promises that they weren't talking about Cindy. Nelle picks that moment to "bring up an issue." She admits that it's cold-hearted, but she feels that Mark's relationship with Cindy will embarrass the firm. "It's not gay rights. It's a circus act, and it's disgusting!" she says. She also uses the term "man missile." Ling smirks and John chokes on his beverage while eating a big plate of pretzels or unwound cinnamon rolls or something. Mark says, "It's my private life, it doesn't involve this firm, and this conversation is over." You tell them, Mark. Richard tries to talk about business again, but Elaine announces that Michael is waiting in Ally's office. In addition to trying to practice law, Richard should get Elaine and the lawyers to sell magazines and snacks to the constant stream of social visitors. They'd probably rake in enough to cover all the cases they lose due to personal bias.
As she closes her office door, Ally shows us the back view of her tight red pants. Now I feel silly for complaining about the lavender and brown. Michael apologizes for running off the night before. He and his son agree that Ally "might be the most amazing woman on earth" and that it'd be a shame if one of them couldn't snag her. Um...yeah. A size-eighteen woman can't expect sex from her husband, and Ally's the most amazing woman on earth. I guess that's as believable as anything on The X-Files. Ally doesn't know Michael or Jonathan well enough to choose between them, so she says she'll continue to date them both. She won't "exchange saliva or bodily fluids" with either until she's "narrow[ed] the field to one." She tells Michael she'll have a date with him that night and then pushes him out of her office. Then she bangs her head on the door and repeatedly voice-overs, "I'll look back and laugh." Yes, and future television audiences will look back at reruns and laugh at the silly generation that kept this show on the air.
