Dr. Gorman's Office Where They Administrate The Pain. In addition to Jimmy, Lindsay, and the good doctor, there is a lawyer present. His name is Aldridge, and he is played by actor Steven Culp. But for the purposes of this recap, we're going to call him Bobby Kennedy because of Thirteen Days, which is a totally decent film. I figure that if DEK can make a mockery of American culture, so can I. Lindsay pipes up. She asks if the doctor is concerned with how SuperBill will fare during trial. Of course, the doctor would prefer that they settled the case. Lindsay: "Then why haven't you?" Bobby Kennedy responds, "We've done everything we could but Mrs. Green and her lawyer are being totally unreasonable." The Lump thinks that the poor woman is entitled to something; after all, her husband is dead. Sure, but she's suing for fifteen million; the hospital offered her a cool million. She turned it down. She won't settle for anything less than three. Damn, Steven Culp is a handsome, handsome man. We forgive DEK for overlooking Hunky D.A. in this episode. Any. Way. Jimmy asks, "Don't you have insurance?" Yes. The hospital does, but the administration is afraid that the carrier will drop their coverage if they get hit for too much. Dr. Gorman says, "If that happens, we're finished. Patients that we've treated for years will be thrown into state institutions, if there's room." Blah most end up on the street blah. Jimmy explains that if they lose at trial, the sky is the limit for damages. Blah SuperBill jumped out of their window blah. Jimmy says, "You have to think you are going to lose." Bobby Kennedy insists, "Only if the jury thinks we're to blame." Here comes The Symphony Of Slimy Situations. Lindsay's mouth drops to the floor, and it's not because she thinks Bobby Kennedy is a dish. Jimmy gives the camera his whoa-wait-a-minute face. Then he says, "You're going to blame Bill? He's insane. You were responsible for him." Bobby Kennedy: "We're not blaming Bill." Dum dum. Dum. Dum. Then who? Who are they blaming? The wife. Of course, it's the wife. It's ALWAYS the wife. Jimmy says, "What are you talking about?" Bobby Kennedy goes on, "Ultimately. We didn't push him out that window. She did." Blah on the day SuperBill "fell," blah Deborah visited him, blah divorce blah. Bobby Kennedy: "Your client wasn't trying to fly, Mr. Berluti. He was trying to kill himself."
