Hunky DA, Master DA, Lindsay, Bobby, and Eugene all file into Judge Wilcox's Chambers. The judge explains that he wants to talk to them off the record for a portion of the result, and that's why they aren't in the courtroom. Alan starts blathering on about office policy and court reporters. The judge shuts him down; he doesn't care about office policy. Kenny says they're fine without a court reporter. The judge thinks that the due process in this case sucks. Kenny starts to dance, but the judge tells him to "save it." Blah deny the motion to withdraw the plea, blah the judge doesn't want to embarrass the DA's office in public. Blah he's disgusted with their conduct, and it sickens him that the two of them can't see that what they did was wrong. Kenny: blah the law blah. Martin's guilty; he should rot in jail. The judge sniffs and threatens Kenny with contempt; Kenny doesn't bite, but instead blathers on about being officers of the court who don't need to be railed on for acting within the bounds of the law. In short, if the judge had a choice, he would set aside the plea, but he just can't. Lindsay begs him. The judge can't throw out a knowing and voluntary plea on the grounds that have been presented. He looks to Lindsay: "You negotiated what you thought was a good deal." She could have challenged the evidence or gone on with the trial. But the plea must stand, and the defendant's motion is denied. Kenny the Conqueror looks mighty pleased with himself and Lindsay looks mighty pissed.
