Helen's Office Where The Pud Is Put Forth For A Painful Deal. Helen asks Rebecca, "You really can't move this idiot?" Rebecca replies that Rodney will accept trespassing. Helen crosses her arms in front of what used to be her chest. Rebecca continues, "Don't look at me! I can't even get him to take it seriously. He keeps demanding I pet his pud." Helen changes subjects. This cues The Lament Of Lindsay. Helen asks how the poor woman is doing. Rebecca answers, "Not good. What's going to happen?" Helen doesn't know. In fact, she's not really "in the loop," because Walsh has the case. Rebecca: "That can't be a good sign." Helen: "It isn't." Their tender looks come to a halt when The Parent Connells enter the office. Rebecca tells Helen she'll see her back in the courtroom, and leaves. Father Connell says, "Ms. Gamble? You wanted to see us?" Cue the heartstrings. Cue the grieving yet strong parents. Cue The Practice Stereotype #12: The Parents Who Want To Be In The Room. Helen says, "The defendant may be taking the stand. I'm not sure you're going to want to be there for that." Pause. The Symphony Of The Suffering Paterfamilias takes over for the Lament. Helen continues, "I don't know what he might say about your daughter." Father Connell insists that they've "prepared themselves" and that they "choose" to be there. Helen: "Even so --" Father Connell interrupts, "We choose to be there."
The Firm Where They Debate The Merits Of Lindsay's Pain. Hang on -- we're mid-discussion, and I get the feeling that they've been in the conference room talking about last night's events the entire time Rebecca's been with Helen. That's so annoying. Any. Way. Jimmy starts off the discussion with a little "I still say don't talk!" Lindsay bellows, "In which case they'll arrest me!" Ellenor tries to calm her down: "Lindsay, the likelihood is that there's going to be an arrest here." Rod hollers, "Why? He was a serial killer violating his T.R.O." Back and forth and back and forth...man, does DEK ever know how to drag something out. Ellenor: "He had no gun!" Bobby: "She didn't know that." Ellenor: "His pattern was to kill by knife, Bobby, she knew that!" Lindsay insists, "All I knew was that he had come to my house and he wouldn't leave." Eugene tries to keep the peace as he tells his co-workers to "dial it back." Whatever the hell that means. He continues, "If they don't have enough to indict, rule of thumb, we don't talk." Lindsay insists that they do have enough to charge her, and the only way they won't put her up for murder is if she and Bobby give them a statement. Eugene disagrees. Ellenor pipes up. She thinks they shouldn't even be thinking about whether or not Lindsay will be arrested. Right now, they need to be thinking about how to win at trial. Because this case will go to trial. Bobby: "You all just heard her story. What is she going to say that could hurt us at trial?" Eugene glances over at the Emperor. This cues the music. Bobby looks at his co-worker and snaps, "What?" Eugene says coolly, "It's your version that concerns me." Bobby says snidely, "My version?" Eugene responds, "What you said she said before she fired. He made the crack about heaven. Lindsay said, 'You go on without me.' It sounds a bit too clever. Reflective even."
