...the vision breaks, and suddenly Eli is just dancing and humming in front of the bemused courtroom occupants. Martin does not look quite as happy now, in case you were wondering. The judge bellows at Eli, snapping him out of it, and after a long look around, he offers, "Nothing further." Heh.
Eli is telling Chen what happened, and here's another character that needs some development, by the way. The shtick in the pilot was funny, but he's not really serving any purpose that Nate and Taylor, who know about the visions, couldn't handle. He's not really that skilled in the vision interpretation. But speaking of, he suggests that "One More Try" could represent God's wish that he do things differently this time with respect to try-ing the case once more. They talk about free will and the fact that Eli misses Taylor, and Chen then suggests that "One More Try" might be about her. Eli's like, "Make up your fucking mind, dude," which: see above.
Donna, who really seems kind of challenged, is on the stand talking about having her ultrasound and seeing the "small miracle" growing inside of her, which prompted her to, as her gross lawyer puts it, "renounce the homosexual lifestyle." Matt objects, calling that word in that context "prejudicial, closed-minded, and offensive," and while the judge snarks that it's nice to "suddenly" see Matt so supportive of gays, I've learned to take my allies where I can get them. Also, in response to the judge's remark, Matt gives a "What did I do?" gesture with his hands, which is hilarious. He jumped waaay up this week. I just want to hear him sing again. Donna jabbers some stuff that's been lifted straight out of an ex-gay pamphlet, followed by some stuff that's been lifted straight out of a born-again pamphlet, before saying that her family is once again speaking to her and welcoming her back home. "This is what I want. This is what my baby needs." Now, I feel a little bad for Donna -- she's clearly confused and being pulled in all directions -- but I want to punch that snatch of a lawyer in her throat for her smug, faux-apologetic mouthed "thank you" sent the judge's way. Matt, however, quickly establishes that there's nothing wrong with Donna's fertility, and then adds that he doesn't understand, then, why she would have gone through a costly procedure to carry "someone else's baby." Donna claims she wasn't herself, but Matt points to Bitch Attorney: "You seem to have a relatively smart lawyer there. I'm kind of surprised she hasn't told you -- that doesn't matter." Someone buy this guy a brewski!
