Court of No Appeal

L.A. Law: The Movie

Out in the hallway, Grace is accosted by Miss Rude. It turns out her name is Raylene, but who cares? Anyway, Miss Rude accuses Grace of trying to make a name for herself at Albert's expense. She threatens, "If they kill my father, [Grace is] going to answer for it." Grace's assistant takes this as a threat of violence and calls for an officer. Michael intercepts Miss Rude and calms her down, insisting that she had no violent intentions. Grace lets them leave. You might think that's foreshadowing, but it's not. Foreshadowing is too busy getting drunk with the guy who does the promos for season finales to participate in this movie.

When we return from commercials, Roxanne is helping Michael set up some sort of temporary office. Jason is helping them carry in some boxes of files, and sticks around to beg Michael to let him help on the case. He's tired of all those boring civil cases. He wants a man's fate in his hands! Or something like that. Michael does have some work for Jason. He says he was suspicious of the murdered cop's partner, Ronald Gervin, throughout the trial, but couldn't find anything on him. Michael asks Jason to find out if there have been any complaints made against Gervin in the past nine years.

Douglas wanders in to see if everything's fine with Michael, and probably to rein in his wayward son. Jason looks like a little boy caught trying to smoke daddy's pipe, and lies that he was just helping Michael move boxes. Jason and Douglas leave the office, only to run into Arnie. Jason tells Arnie the new time for the deposition, but Arnie wants to know the status of the motion to block Abby. The judge said he's not going to disqualify Abby, so they're just going to have to deal with her.

Roxanne and Dave drink coffee together, as Dave blathers about direct marketing. He talks about all the money-making schemes he's got going on, and just sort of works in that he also has cancer. Roxanne looks shocked and sad. I think. She always kind of looks shocked and sad, so who can tell? Dave says he's done chemo and stuff, but it didn't work. He says he doesn't have much time left. He tries to parlay the disease into an offer to sleep in Roxanne's guest room, but she doesn't bite. She does say that he can call and come over whenever he wants. They hug. The official L.A. Law sad transition music plays.

Back in Michael's office, the receptionist comes in to tell him that a man named Warren Mytelka is there to see him. Michael doesn't know anybody by that name. The receptionist says that Belinda (the prostitute) told him to come to the office. Out in the reception area, Warren sits in a chair, rubbing his hands, goggling his eyes, mouth-breathing, and doing everything from the chapter on "non-verbals" from The Actor's Guide to Playing the Mentally Challenged. This, of course, is Benny's cue to come by with coffee and Krispy Kremes for the office. Warren and Benny bond over doughnuts. It's boring. Michael comes out and greets Warren. He invites Warren into his office, but Warren's suddenly afraid and doesn't want to be alone with Michael. He freaks out and says he'll come back another time and rushes over to the elevators. Michael follows him over to the elevator and asks Benny to come with to serve as some sort of mentally challenged translator or something. Whatever. Michael asks Warren whether he witnessed the murder of the police officer, and whether Belinda sent him. Warren sticks a hand over the side of his face so that he can't see Michael. Michael asks Benny to talk to Warren in his native tongue of Rainman. Benny essentially asks Michael to leave to make Warren more comfortable. After he heads back to the office, Warren calms down. Benny convinces Warren that Michael's a nice guy and that nobody at the firm is going to hurt him.
