The Firm. Ellenor complains, "He doesn't need us, Bobby." Pause. "He's not even letting us in on all of his cards. We're simply sitting in the courtroom as spectators to be impressed." Blah narcissistic disorder, blah see his achievements, blah enjoy them blah. Rod says flatly, "Well, we can't get out now, Ellenor." There is a ratta-tat-tat on the door. Joey bursts in without waiting for a "come in." Ellenor snaps, "We were just talking about you, Joey. Nice little bombshell!" He replies, "Wasn't it, though?" Ellenor: "Why didn't you tell us about it?" Blah ruin the surprise blah. Joey continues, "Now, the question becomes, do I let Daniel testify? Things are going so well." Rod asks if the kid has any skeletons. Not that Joey is aware of. Damn, there goes that bunny again. Freaking bunny. Shut up already. I know it's a set-up. Any. Way. Ellenor thinks the kid has to testify. He has to explain the semen. Rod adds, "And the blood in his car." Joey sits on the arm of Rod's couch and argues, "I could rest now and argue they didn't make their burden." Why does this all sound like a law school exercise? Poor Daniel. He's totally put his life in the hands of the wrong man. Rod snaps, "Joey." Pause. "Things aren't going that well. You need to put him up there."
The Firm. On the other side of Rod's office, Jimmy and Eugene meet with Jennifer Cole. Jimmy says, "I'll do whatever you want. But Jennifer, we're not going to win this." She looks upset. "He's prepared to put an army of lawyers on this. I think we should just let it go." Jennifer doesn't like that answer. She doesn't think she can just let go of the fact that the man raped her. They pause for a minute as Pauline, the super-secretary, walks into The Firm. She asks to see the lawyers privately.
Boardroom. The camera pans over Pauline's super-size purse and then over her sleeveless dress. How come she has no coat? It's pre-April. In Boston. I mean, it's a nice dress and everything, but damn, she would be cold. Anyway, she says, "First. I'm going to deny everything I'm about to tell you." Jimmy says okay. Pauline continues, "I don't know if Mr. Mathis did what you said he did. But there's a junior partner at my firm who keeps asking me what's going on." He's just too interested, you know? Pauline continues, "I think he knows something." When Jimmy asks what his name is, Pauline pulls out a business card and hands it to him. "Like I said. We never had this conversation." Eugene says, "Jimmy. Draft a complaint. Move for an emergency deposition to be taken prior to filing the complaint." The Lump wonders if they can do that. Eugene says they can, if there's a danger that the evidence could be lost. After all, the junior partner will feel a lot of pressure to toe the party line.
