Yay, it's Female Asian Judge! I think she's my favorite bit character on the show. I can see on her nameplate that her first name is "Marcia," so she'll be Judge Marcia until I get a more informative camera angle. Oh, wait, IMDb lists her as "Judge Phelps." That's more dignified. Anyway, Judge Phelps disbelievingly asks Taylor and Matt, "You brought me a gay chimp case?" If that isn't indicative enough, she's skeptical of the merits of the case, so Matt asks her if she's heard of the theory of chimpanzee tort protection. Judge Phelps: "Let's go out on a limb and say that I haven't." Hee. Matt babbles some bullshit (not that he's wrong on the merits, necessarily, but he's totally making this up as he goes along) about the similarities between chimps and humans, and Taylor gets in on the act too. The opposing counsel is dismissive, but I think she's the same woman who represented Matt ex-girlfriend's ex-lover, so she's probably just one of those right-wing crazies Sassy Patti was talking about. Judge Phelps is like, "Sit down, bitch, I'm hearing the case." Love her. Matt and Taylor both look psyched.
Eli and Maggie are alone with the boxes, and they've laid out their strategy for proving their case on a whiteboard. Maggie's phone rings, but when she sees who it is, she rejects the call. I'd feel sorry for her fiancé if I actually thought he existed. Eli tells her it's okay for her to talk to her fiancé in front of him, and then her phone rings again, so this time she answers, "Hey, sweetie." That seems like a familiar way to greet a telemarketer, but I could see Maggie striking up that kind of friendship. She gets rid of him, anyway, and Eli offers that if she wants to talk to him at more length, that's cool, but Maggie awkwardly says that he gets her situation, and that "Scott" is really awesome. Anyway, Eli makes a "hmm" noise, and just like that, they're having a discussion about the engagement, with Eli opining that it came out of nowhere, as it did, and Maggie saying that going home reprioritized a lot of things for her, such as long-distance engagements with people who may or may not exist. Eli says he's glad, because he didn't want to think that she got engaged as a reaction to what happened between them, which is a load -- he's only sorry that she got engaged in that she's not an option for him now, not that she had a strong reaction. Anyway, don't you two have work to do?
