Brit eats candy corn and reads a memo or something. Grant walks up, and she congratulates him on winning a $12 million case. Brit is happy to hear that Grant made their star witness cry. Grant downplays it. Brit says she had an interesting conversation with Chester from Recruiting. Grant disgustedly asks if he's the one who wears Brooks Brothers and carries a man purse. Brit adds that he loves gossip. I want Chester to be on the show! He sounds awesome! Brit says that Ariel isn't digging up information on Jack; she's digging up things about Grant.
Back at the prison, Jack asks why Barrington would confide in Forrester in the first place. Forrester says that when you discover that justice is complicated, "you make certain choices." Jack clarifies that they're talking about Barrington and not Forrester here. Forrester asks if Jack is aware that Barrington had "accrued substantial debt." Jack knew that. Forrester says that Barrington's daughter was probably quite dismayed. Jack seems surprised that Forrester knew about that. Forrester launches a huge analogy about how being in debt is like spinning your tires in snow, and eventually you have to compromise. Jack asks what compromises Barrington made, and Forrester says that the only thing he had left to compromise was the law. Jack won't hear of it. Forrester starts quoting Shakespeare to show that everyone is capable of compromise. Jack disagrees and gets all agitated. Forrester asks Jack if he has any skeletons in his closet. Forrester asks Jack about his beach house. Jack stops cold. Traub raises his eyebrows, like he either knows something, or thinks he should know something. Forrester asks about Jack's dating life, and whether he "replaced that cute little attorney yet" or if he's still afraid to be in a relationship with a woman who's smarter than him. Jack angrily says he's done there. Forrester concludes, "And give my regards to your mother. How is she doing these days, by the way? Are they treating her okay?" Jack walks back over and slams his hand down on Forrester's table, calling him a son of a bitch. It just got interesting!
