Hayden wanders off into the firm, like the tiny magical creature that he is, and they just stare.
Will: "So have we hit bottom yet?"
Diane: "No, girl. No we have not."
To a Vampire Weekend-y song we'll hear again at the end of the episode, we see a long montage of Zach using ChumHum (!) to network with other people whose rights have been brought into question, and learn about what those rights are, and... This show has a good, strong heart, and it's the best, but for out-and-out Good Works, I really like this. Just the little reminder to whoever is watching the show on CBS that you have rights and that you kind of need to know what they are, and that you can fight the Man, and all these things.
Any time you get the opportunity to remind a person that they have free access -- for the first time in history -- to the sum total of human knowledge, you should take it. It's a muscle we're still in the infancy of developing, so it's important to keep mindful.
Zach: "Hey Mom, did you know you can videotape a cop, just not audiotape them?"
Alicia: "Did they teach that at school?"
Zach: "Um, no. It's kind of been on my mind ever since I videotaped that cop? Where's your head at? Anyway, it's this old law about taping phone calls -- both parties having to consent to the recording -- that hasn't caught up to our current reality."
Alicia: "I see that you found this on a website about legalizing marijuana."
Zach: "No, it's a website about personal rights which, unsurprisingly, mentions legalizing marijuana. See the difference?"
Alicia: "No, because I'm old, but go on."
Zach: "So check this out. The email that I sent myself, that caused my arrest? I'd bluetoothed my phone to the car and forgot to change it back. So what we have is a tape of the arrest, with just that awful chicken song playing."
Oh, the beautiful smile of Alicia Florrick. How rarely we do see you.
CUT STRAIGHT TO
Judge: "Can you please turn that fucking song off? It's worse than the Mindy Project theme."
Alicia: "I know, right? And Zach's the one with good taste. Anyway, my kid never recorded audio, which means there was no violation of Article 14, so we ask the court to enter a finding of no probable cause."
Judge: "Sounds good to me. ASA Williams?"
