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."
To lull us into a false sense of not being terrified of him, Lester soft-shoes around for a while asking nonsense questions about nothing at all, and Cary and Alicia look at each other like they're almost ready to not watch him like a hawk even though clearly he is a killer or a tormenter of some kind.
Diane: "Kalinda, we got a problem with Seth DeLuca, the restaurateur."
Will: "He paid his bill, in full, on time. Down to the cent. For the first time in eight years."
Kalinda: "So, go see who he's dealing with. Got it. Later!"
Diane: "Hey, wait. Apropos of nothing, do you know any other investigators who are looking for work at an all-service law firm? I'm just asking for no reason at all."
Like she literally says that: "Oh, no reason." Why would you do that, Diane? Kalinda is the smartest person on like, all of the earth.
BISHOP PRELIM HEARING
Defense: "We don't think there's enough evidence for a trial, honestly..."
AUSA: "They're trying to argue the case before they argue the case! It's two at-bats!"
Defense: "Your Honor, Liz Lawrence is a dick."
AUSA: "Judge, I will swear on a Bible that Alicia Florrick and Lemond Bishop eat puppies together each Wednesday afternoon at a local fern bar and grille."
Judge Bebe: "I'm so sure. Just question your witness."
Alicia, with a comforting hand: "We are going to lose this one, but it'll be better for the trial, okay? Just trust me."
Kramer from before: "I did hear Mr. Bishop talk about skimming in one of his meetings. He felt negatively about it."
AUSA: "To the degree that he said he would murder people?"
Kramer: "I have no idea what you're talking about."
AUSA: "Really, because I'm pretty sure you told us that."
Kramer: "Nope, sorry. I remember he said 'get rid of,' as in fire, as in terminate their employ..."
Alicia: "Hmm. I maybe personally fucked this one up, but oh well. Call to dismiss."
There's quite a throwdown there, with Liz pointing out that he's clearly recanting because of outside pressure and Alicia doing her job of relating this all back to the question of the hearing and Cary running interference and everybody screaming, but the testimony is the testimony, so shut up everybody.
