Jimmy says D'Ambrosio didn't do it. In fact, his client is a pillar of the community. Yawn. Jimmy argues that the prosecution is simply blaming him for being an Italian-American. You know what I think? I think DEK is suffering from an anxiety disorder because his show sucks and The Sopranos doesn't. So blah stereotypes in the media, blah bash The Sopranos, blah bad movies, blah over-hype blah. Jimmy argues that maybe people do think that if you are a successful Italian-American, you must be mobbed up, but in this case, it's not true. And it's a disservice to society to think otherwise. Blah no evidence linked to Tucker, blah demented admitted liar blah. If you didn't get it -- Jimmy's trying like mad to get D'Ambrosio off, because he's not guilty.
Joe Morton's Office Of Secret FBI Pain. Ellenor proposes a deal. Skip and his mom are there. Mrs. Hyman pleads for her son; after all, "he's a good boy." Lucy stands off to the side. Morton agrees, but only if Skip makes full restitution and forfeits any property bought with the funds. Lucy holds up the ring. Then she asks if she can talk to Skip. He asks her to "please don't." She apologizes. "I'm just not ready for that kind of a commitment." He tells her he loves her. And "if it's the ring. He'll get her another one." Mrs. Hyman stands up and shouts, "Oh! Please!" For once, echoing my sentiments. Lucy says it's not the ring; she does care for him, but it's just too much. Mrs. Hyman doesn't wait for Skip to respond. She grabs the ring and slams it on Morton's desk: "My son will take the deal. He'll plead guilty." She turns to Lucy. "And you stay the hell away from my son!" Now that all ended up for the best, didn't it?
Suffering County Courthouse. The jury files in. D'Ambrosio hands Jimmy his Rolex, because he's afraid that if he goes into custody, the guards will steal it and never give it back. What? Does he think he's going back to Oz? Didn't someone tell him that he died in that prison? That he's not likely to be resurrected anytime soon? Right. The verdict. He's found not guilty. Now, there's a surprise. Walsh shakes his head. He's a real sore loser.
Client Room. D'Ambrosio puts his watch back on. As if we didn't already think he was an asshole. Blah what a relief, blah thank you so much blah. He hugs Jimmy. Thanks him for saving him from being wrongly convicted. Then, for some reason, D'Ambrosio brings up Jimmy's father. I start pulling my hair out piece by piece. My scalp is sore, but it's totally less painful. Blah you are nothing like my father, blah he was a good man, blah you lousy tax-evading butterhead, blah yawn, blah you never knew my father blah. Insert whatever sappy story about what a stand-up guy Jimmy's father was here. Use your imagination. You won't have to go far. D'Ambrosio wells up. But then he ruins the moment; according to him, the truth is that he's just a businessman trying to make a living in a hard, hard world. Ah, life lessons for everyone. Double yawn.
