Veronica: "Where did you get your penchant for discretion, Alicia? It must be a recessive gene or something. Vagina."
THE BIG GAY WIRETAP
Makes it sound pretty bad for our li'l gay guy. He is innocent, but it catches him admitting that he's having doubts whether he's to blame or not. Conscientious, this one.
Breslow: "No questions."
Alicia: "Uh, you can't let that stand. It sounds bad."
Breslow: "The judge is smart enough to see he was just being conscientious."
Alicia: "Please, CFO client, let us cross-examine you so the judge will have to face it right now."
Breslow: "I cannot believe women are trying to tell me how to do my job. Next thing you know, this gay guy's gonna tell me this whole thing is none of our business."
Diane: "Oh shit, you want to lose. You want us to lose this so you can get to the Supreme Court."
Breslow: "Are you just now figuring this out?"
He pulls out a sword and waves it around, sprouting gleaming white wings and a breastplate of finest gold, yelling about how much fun it is to be self-righteous on other people's behalf.
Back in court, the CEO totally bones our guy, like, he actually just says the whole thing was the CFO's idea. Total lie. Breslow, again, sits it out. But have you heard about Alicia's fucks this year? Because she is not giving any of them. Over both portly white rich guy's protestations -- Breslow and Bucky, both for the same basic reason that they want to make this about gay marriage -- Alicia plays the original wiretap between the CEO and his wife.
"When Mr. Foster was a defendant, the tap could not be played. But he's no longer a defendant. He's a witness, and I am using this tap for impeachment. There is no spousal privilege with impeachment."
Which is handy, I like that. Both Bucky and the CEO's attorney kept trying to play their defenses off each other, so now she's handing that shit back to them. Bebe likes it too.
Bucky offers the CFO four months, admission of complicity, and $500,000 in restitution. Which is tough because he's innocent, but it's the Dept of Justice and those guys are kinda scary, so it counts as a win. There's a cute moment where Diane tells him not to cheer until Bucky's turned the corner, and then they do a happy dance.
Out in the lobby, Sad Gay Owen approaches the CFO's gorgeous husband and thanks him for being such a hero as to... Do the nothing that he is doing? The whole point is to set up the next scene, where their Inner Gay Nobility suddenly causes them to turn down the deal so that Breslow can ride on their backs all the way to Scalia like big gay pack mules, but Sad Gay Owen is really fucking useless and gross in this episode, so it doesn't really matter what he says or why he's talking to the husband.
