The Courtroom That Trounces Callie's Pain. Jerry Cochran is on the stand. He tells the jury that he was home alone the night of the murder. Right, Plot Necessity #3: The suspect must be home alone to further create the mysterious aura we all crave. Jimmy asks, "All night?" Yes. Jerry's got to be at work by 5 AM, so he doesn't go out on weeknights. Before Jimmy can ask his next question, Helen calls for a sidebar. The judge agrees and waves them over.
Helen argues that even with the DNA being excluded, Jimmy knows what the results of the test are. Further, this would mean that Jimmy knows the witness to be lying. Jimmy insists that he doesn't know the test results. He only knows the D.A.'s test results. He doesn't know his client's claim is false. Blah he's entitled to put him up on the stand blah. The judge doesn't like it. He tells Jimmy he's full of crap, but "technically" he can't stop Jimmy from continuing Jerry's testimony.
Back to the floor. Jimmy continues, "Mr. Cochran, you sat here this morning and heard Ms. Fairbanks identify you as the person who raped her." Jerry insists that Callie "got it wrong." He may be a bad-ass, but he "don't rape people." He turns to Callie and says, "You got it wrong." Helen shouts, "Objection!" The judge tells Jerry not to address the victim. Jerry says again, "I didn't do it! As God is my witness, I'm innocent of this." Well, if God is his witness, it must be true. Yawn.
