Old D.A. X gets up for cross. He wonders, mockingly, why no one saw Jean and Danny at the club. Danny says, "I'm sure people did, but no one's come forward." The D.A. continues, "It's funny how not one waitress, not one bartender, not one patron remembers seeing you there." Danny says it's a "pretty crowded place." Of course it is. Were there any witnesses to establish that Danny was home? He snaps, "If there were witnesses, I wouldn't have been home alone." Old D.A. X steps forward and pulls out his ace: "Ever been convicted of a crime, Mr. Carrington?" Bobby and Ellenor's eyes open so wide that you could fit the province Alberta into them. Danny replies, "Once. It was many years ago." The D.A. asks, "What was it?" Danny pauses for a minute, and then he answers, "Assault." Ha! In fact it was assault and battery -- he beat up an old girlfriend. Damn. Danny tells the D.A. that he just "pushed" her. Old D.A. X smarts, "You pushed her and she was hospitalized with three broken ribs." Damn. That's the end of that successful run. Poor Joey. Always drops the ball on the back nine. Wait, I think I'm confusing my sports analogies. Have I come down with a case of the DEK?
Outside the courtroom, Bobby grabs Joey by the arm, pulls him around to face him, and snarls, "Did you know about that conviction?" Joey snaps back, "So what? He was only nineteen at the time!" Ellenor whisper-screams, "It doesn't matter. That felony was reason enough to keep him off the stand!" Blah they told him to put Danny on the stand blah. Joey is good at playing "incredulous." Can we keep him, please? He is so much fun. Bobby says angrily, "We didn't know he beat up a former girlfriend." Joey argues that the jury had to hear Danny's story. Bobby doesn't care: "How about you let us in on all the facts from now on." What facts are left? I mean, isn't that Joey's whole case? Isn't the damage already done? Joey whines in response, "Just help me prepare my closing." Bobby snaps, "We'll meet you at the office later on." He and Ellenor stomp off. They aren't happy with the Joey. They'd like to hurl the Joey off a cliff, I think.
