(N.B. Literally every show I have ever recapped, he eventually guest-starred in. I love him, you love him, we all love him, but I ran out of Princess Bride jokes in like Season Two of Gossip Girl -- and you know I kind of hate referential, quote-along gag humor anyway -- so you'll forgive me I hope. Unless something comes up, I guess. What I feel is more important about Wallace Shawn, personally, is that he's one of those, like, Stephen Fry/Steve Martin levels of Good At Everything There Is. Like he's this brilliant actor, today, only because he doesn't feel like being an astronaut or an ambassador or an architect, today -- and let me point out that's just a sampling of the first letter of the alphabet of things he could be, today, just if he randomly felt like it -- which is one hell of a lot sexier than bare nostalgia, which I generally think of as a form of mental cancer anyway.)
Lester: "So you're... clearly Alicia Florrick, and you must be ... Cary Agos. You're not what I expected."
The Both: "The hell you say."
Lester: "You both look a lot younger, for starters!"
Alicia: "Good start, good start."
Cary: "...Yeah, I'll take it."
There's a bit of business as they try to figure him out and he fumbles and bumbles and manages to invoke both the delightful Elsbeth Tascioni and one of the menacing Lesser Barons of Hell, somehow both at the same time, but he locates the address of their first witness to interview, and they head out.
WITNESS #1: IKE KRAMER
Kramer: "No thank you, I don't feel like chatting today."
Us Guys: "Why don't you just tell us whatever you told the Feds, before."
Kramer: "I'm not trying to hurt Mr. Bishop, just tell the truth. He told us in a meeting that if he caught anyone skimming, he would kill them."
Us Guys: "Specifically kill? Not maybe 'get rid of' like as in fire, terminate their employ, but actually 'kill'?"
Kramer: "Nobody, including Bishop, knew Christina was a CI. But some people, including Bishop, knew she was skimming. Which I'm pretty sure was the whole point of the meeting. And now she's dead, so."
Us Guys: "Was it all maybe a hilarious joke?"
Kramer: "Well, nobody laughed. We all understand Mr. Bishop's style of humor, which is that he doesn't have a sense of humor about basically anything."
