Back in court, Eleanor is interrogating My-Fair-lita, and it seems like she's doing Milton a favor and saying exactly the things that will help Non-Coach Kevin. Eleanor is asking, "Good Kevin say words to you why for?" My-Fair-lita responds: "He tell me no more make jub-jub with Bad Milton." Eleanor asks if there was anything else. "He tell me to go see Witch Doctor Big Boy." Eleanor asks, "Why for?" and, true to her preparation, one assumes, Lisa replies, "Good Kevin want to know that Bad Milton not hurt me." Moving on, Ms. Frutt notes that, at some point (i.e. "Chapter Twelve") Lisa's parents found out about the relationship, and asks what their reaction was. Lisa explains more or less in this manner: "In the first moon of finding out, Big Father want to crush Bad Milton with the Heavy Stone of Punishment. But now they see that Bad Milton is Good Milton, and this moon they support our sharing of the sleeping furs." Over by Steven and Scott, Ms. Krakatoa makes some frantic notes on her legal pad.
Later, in Steven's office, Anthony Heald begins a new scene by, guess what, asking an incredulous question: "I don't see how that's relevant. This issue is our decision, not the parents' reaction." But Ms. Jelliclecat says that they're screwed, and explains thusly: "Underlying your decision is the wisdom of a teacher and a student carrying on a relationship. With the parents not challenging that wisdom it makes the relationship less shocking, and Kevin's decision not to report it…" Scott repeats that that's not the issue, but Ms. Lilliputian suggests that they might want to give Kevin his job back. Steven's not having it: "I'm not giving him his job back. I don't care what the parents think. What Kevin Riley did was wrong, I don't care what the parents think. He didn't just indict himself, it affects this school, the profession of teaching…it's not a small matter. It isn't trivial." Ms. Hammurabi is staring at him. Steven says, "What?" Ms. Magicallydelicious says, "I think that you should deliver our closing statement." Steven tries to point out that he's not a lawyer (the only person on this show who is not a lawyer, I guess), but she goes on, "If we're going to have any chance at all it is that kind of passion we need to convey. I can arrange it with the judge. Will you do it? All you have to do is tell the judge in your own words why Kevin Riley shouldn't teach at Winslow High." Steven sighs. See, because he's a lot less comfortable disparaging his friend to his face than sending his hatchet man to take care of firing him while he looks the other way.
