Jerome tracks Mike down at the office and asks if he shoots pool. Mike's taken aback and says, "Yeah." Jerome tells him to come with him. I get a mental image of Mike tied naked to a pool table and Jerome cueing up to smack Mike's balls silly.
In court, Siringo is offering his closing statements. He's insulting the hell out of the jury by saying things like "I want you all to open up your small-town minds and try to understand a concept. I want Stickeyville to come join me in the twenty-first century for a moment." Ed tells Bob what's going on and says that if the jury isn't making eye contact with Siringo, then Bob is sure to lose. Sure enough, every member of the jury is avoiding eye contact with Siringo as if he was naked and playing with himself like a monkey. Siringo closes his statement thus: "C'mon...would a famous lawyer steer you people wrong?" Ed asks Bob if he can step in and save this case. Bob about swallows his tongue trying to get out the word "Yes!" Ed jumps up and says that he wants to add something to the closing statement. The judge has no patience for such tomfoolery; he says he's going to count to three, and by the time he gets to three, these two co-counsel had better have their shit together. Siringo tells Ed not to do this, and Ed says he has to. The judge asks Bob who he wants to represent him; Bob stands up and says, "I want ED!" as the patriotic Frank Capraesque music swells. Siringo mutters, "You're making a big mistake" as the judge asks Siringo, "What law school did YOU go to, TV Boy?" Holy cow. Even the judge is turning on Siringo. Ed tells the jury that Siringo called Ed a small-town guy and told him to get out of Siringo's way with this case, but the truth is that Jo Ann humiliated Bob first at the Sinister Goat. Siringo argues that Ed can't introduce evidence now. Ed continues and says that Siringo's plan was to lose this case and to keep appealing it until it got to the Supreme Court. A shocked gasp flows over the courtroom. The judge says that he has no choice but to declare this case a mistrial. Bob and Ed are excited while Siringo grumbles. Jo Ann's attorney leans over to Ed and Bob and says, "There won't be another trial" as they leave. Bob asks what that means, and Ed grins, saying that they're dropping the charges because they know they can't win now. Bob's overjoyed. Siringo tells Ed that he's a good lawyer, adding that it's too bad he's stuck in Stuckeyville, and that there was no pun intended on that wisecrack. Ed just looks at Siringo and says, "I like it here." The swelling Frank Capraesque music threatens to blow out my windows as the scene thankfully ends.
