She's also sitting behind Grace in the courtroom scenes, but you can barely see her there. She's cute, huh? No, I don't know if she's available. Joan says, "Nice job, Counsellor, but wait until my cross-examination. You're toast, Bean Boy." Adam: "I don't know. Grace is on fire." Grace declares, "The law is such a joke. You can manipulate it however you want. Well, I can." Joan: "There are still absolutes. There's such a thing as innocence and guilt." Grace: "Says who?" Joan: "Says very important people." Bonnie suddenly comes down the hall and says to Adam in a pretty annoyed way, "Can we talk?" Adam replies, "I'm kinda busy." Grace has a panicky look in her eyes. Joan, oblivious, says, "Hi, Bonnie." Bonnie just completely ignores Joan and takes a step closer to Adam. Joan: "Are you okay?" Bonnie snipes, "You can give me two minutes. I think I deserve that." Adam gives her the coldest look he's probably capable of. She stares back at him with hurt in her eyes. Joan looks at Adam, and then back at Bonnie: "What's going on?" Nobody says anything. Frink: "Don't tell me she's pregnant." I look at him, aghast, because that never even occurred to me. I figured she was just screwing him over as payback. Or maybe she wants to talk about where their relationship is going. But the mention of pregnancy makes me think of STDs, and oh, good lord. Adam looks down at the table, Grace tries to make her expression neutral when Joan glances at her, and eventually Bonnie just leaves. Joan stares at Grace for a while, obviously gleaning more than she wants to from her brief glimpse of Grace's expression. In fact, I think it's Grace's obvious discomfort that makes Joan really suspicious. Adam might have gotten away with it -- for the moment -- if Grace hadn't been there complicating things. Joan asks Adam, "What was that all about?" Adam: "Nothing. Um, I, uh lost some of her art supplies." Is that what the kids are calling it these days? Joan looks like she'd like to buy that, but is fresh out of three-dollar bills. Adam tries again: "She's a freak." Joan glances again at Grace, who's really having trouble knowing what to do with her facial expression. As Joan says, "Adam " Bailiff God calls them back into the courtroom. Adam grabs this excuse to leave Joan standing there, looking like someone just smacked her in the face. Bailiff God watches her. She finally lets out a small breath, but it's not one of relief.
