- Censorship is illegal.
- Spam is illegal.
- Child pornography is illegal.
Ergo, the District Attorney's office can feel free to take legal action against any entity engaging in the latter two activities provided it does not seep over into the former. But, as we discovered IN COURT, LAST WEEK, Goldman is not accountable for the illegal pornography that kickstarted a case that got thrown completely out of court, and, unless he's the Porn Fairy, who creeps into children's rooms a night and corrupts their internet cache by altering the website of Bob the Builder so that he's straddling Wendy in the back of the construction yard, Goldman's not responsible for spam, either. Until these issues are parsed with a tiny bit more elegance on this show, the case is quite literally closed. Not Sydney fears, "You start the train down this track, I don't know where you stop it." Sydney argues, "The train stops when we win the election." Roam leaps on her: "No! The train stops when we run out of fuel!" Where the next station stop will be: "Death Of Sensical Dialogue Upon Avon." Was this the sample script that was in the copy of Final Draft the writer bought?
What must have been a few cut scenes later, Adam is being called out of class and arrives at some kind of administrative office. Spanish Maid from earlier is there to tell him, "Your aunt is sick." She ushers Adam out of the school and tells the nice lady at the front desk that Adam will be gone for the rest of the day. Wow! It sure is a good thing that Jewel's maid is the same exact kind of foreign as Jewel's boyfriend!
"Hey, Grandma," Adam yells in broad daylight, where he finds Jew-liet leaning against the hood of her car. Well, I know she's not really in high school, but that's not very nice at all, is it? They kiss madly, as Spanish Maid tells them that if Jew-liet mother finds out they're both dead. She tells Jew-liet to be home by dinner, and to Adam she says, "You be a gentlemen." He promises he will. Spanish Maid takes off. A sail! A sail!
And so, Cam (wait...is THAT Johnny Wong? You know what? Never mind. I don't actually care) takes Darlene Fake Smith into Right Hand's office, telling him that he doesn't usually go around Larry, but that this girl has got something "special." Right Hand gives a look and a "Johnny..." (oooooh.): "I'm the CFO. I don't do casting." Right Hand adds that if Larry doesn't want Darlene, his hands are pretty much tied (if only), but a small histrionic attack finds Darlene lamenting her inability to get a job, ending with, "I love Hollywood." Johnny is at the ready with a comebacker to the mound: "This isn't Hollywood, honey. This is Chatsworth." But one great line that six people will get does not make up for the other failing moments of this episode, which so far have been "all." Oh, and apparently her car has broken down, leaving Right Hand to flirt, "You got cables? I'll jump you." And besides being one of the most unintentionally bad lines of television I've seen anywhere this season (but we're already beyond the point where I need to point that out each individual time that happens, right?), this is just another prime example of the way companies fall when the left hand doesn't know just what the right hand is doing.
