Paunchy Boozehound walks out of the restaurant and down the street. Sarah scurries after him. Excuse her? Mr. McDrunkford? Got a sec? She's a huuuge fan. She calls Stacy a "beacon when it comes to coastal zone management" and says it's an "honor" to meet him. Get a shovel. We're hip-high in BS. He's all, "Tell it to somebody who cares." She keeps on pestering him until he asks if she's a "hooker," because he "has no money and has gone off hookers." Well, she's a lawyer -- she sort of screws people for money. Sorry, too easy. And too true. But she says she really cares about what happens to our submerged lands. That, and how much makeup is on her roommate's face. Could she trouble Stacy for an affidavit? Seeing as he's "such a beacon." What a pain in the ass.
Giancarlo warns Gretchen that being the one facing a deposition is much worse than doing the deposing. Or, duh. Gretchen's wearing this tiny little black blazer that looks like a little girl's. Fitted is one thing; tiny is another. Giancarlo tells her that "most attorneys get tripped up by their own arrogance." Gretchen drops her chin and stares hard at him, then says it's her record this will go on. Giancarlo says, "Being sued is a part of doing business. Get over it." He walks off and she scoffs to herself. Get over it. Ha! Who ever does that on a David E. Kelley show! An Asian guy walks up behind her and asks if it's true she has to appear before the bar. She sneers and squints at him and says no, she's being sued. But Edmund/Armin is a "real pit bull!" So she should be okay, says Asian Guy. Just don't answer any questions. One of his past clients never spoke once! "That's a record," he says, twice. Miss Holt comes up and asks Asian Guy to stop by her office in a bit -- he leans in to Gretchen's office and says he thinks she has "designs on [him]." "Praying Mantis," says Gretchen sarcastically. Asian Guy says Miss Holt "is sexy, in that bite-your-head-off kind of way." The fuck? This show blows.
