In the courthouse, Ed's slinking down the hall like a wounded man who just saw his own heart ripped from his chest and eaten by a rabid wolverine, when Bonnie walks up. She says hi to Ed and Ed is very curt with her. She says that he's fallen off the face of the earth lately, and he's nonchalant about his sudden fall from earth. She's called him ten times to apologize. Ed excuses himself to get back to court. Bonnie follows him, poking him with pointy little verbal daggers. They get into an argument over her taking the job. He's not going to ask her to stay because he knows she won't. She asks if he even considered asking her to stay, and he says no because she wouldn't. This goes on for what seems to be an eternity, and Ed finally loses it. He tells her, "Good luck with your new job, good luck in Washington, good luck with your life, and I hope you become President of the Universe someday because that's all you want anyway."
Ouch! Ed, quickly now: grope between your legs for me. Because I think you may have just grown a set of balls, young man.
Bonnie, whose arsenal of snide comebacks must have reached critical stage, retaliates with, "You can be mean," and walks away. Had she followed up that statement with, "And you're a man with piercing blue eyes," it may have been the absolute worst comeback of all time.
In court, a freak on the stand is being asked what is his relationship to Carrie Thomas. He says she's his lady, because he realizes he's in court and, "She's my bitch" may not have flown as well in front of a predominantly female jury. He says that Carrie wrote the song "Watching Him Go" for him because he has curly brown hair and the lyrics mention curly brown hair. It's Ed's turn. Ed brings up the fact that in the lyrics her soul retracts from "his steely gaze." So Ed wants to see the cat's steely gaze. The guy sighs and gives Ed a typical stoner look. Ed says it's not steely enough for him, and asks if anyone's soul retracted from the guy's gaze. Luckily, no souls have been retracted. The public defendant says this is ridiculous. Ed agrees and says that it's ridiculous to think that just because this guy has brown hair it means that Carrie wrote the song. Good point, Matlock.
