Synth: "Other stuff that is similarly all made up, because Mandy Post has a Wendy Scott-Carr need to take Peter down for no reason, and she's obsessed with this story even though it makes no sense."
Alicia: "I have to go, you guys."
Eli: "That was so great in there, you're always so good at things. I could kiss you!"
Alicia: "That would be hilarious. But don't do it."
Ficus: "Please don't hurt me again, Mr. Gold!"
Eli: "Kalinda, check this part of the story about the St. Martin Hotel. I think I was in the adjoining room, with the door open."
Kalinda: "What an odd detail to offer out of nowhere. I sure hope it doesn't give me cause to be suspicious later."
The case is that Tre Lawson was a 19-year-old freshman at Neil Gross's alma mater, Chicago Polytechnic, on a water polo scholarship, who was hazed to death by a teammate, Wayne Crockett. He taunted, bullied and drawned him, plead guilty, and is now serving eight years. But the parents are suing the school now, because this was at an annual water polo party known to get out of hand, and because of the ramping-up of the bullying beforehand. Opposing counsel is Lionel Luthor, because this show never met an openly gay guest star they couldn't shove in there somewhere, but they only choose the best ones, and it's for sure a good thing. Especially when they're hitting the It Gets Better button so hard and weirdly like this week.
You know who I miss? Owen's boyfriend that Michael Arden played, the Tantric guru from Scandinavia. Maybe he got hit on the head by a falling Kristen Chenoweth.
L/G: "What are we looking at here? It seems like water polo, but drunk."
Coach Shank: "It's called the Dunk, it's a swimming and horseplay party we have the night before our first match. We like to keep our festivities pretty thematic. And by 'we,' of course, I mean 'I had no idea this tradition even exists.'"
The eponymous Dunk is, the veteran players hold the freshmen under water, I guess just until they are almost dead. How fun! I had no idea the water polo subculture was so classy. Why, it's almost like regular polo.
Video Crockett: "Oh my God, he drowned! Because I was drowning him!"
Luthor: "But you say you told them not to do it this year? And then they took it off campus. So the school has nothing to do with it."
