Boston Legal: Chitty Chitty Bang Bang

While Shirley Schmidt and former husband Ivan Tiggs work together on a divorce case involving a couple arguing over their Victorian erotica collection, the recently remarried Ivan tries once again to woo Shirley back into his life.

Meanwhile, now that Paul Lewiston is single-handedly taking care of his three-year-old granddaughter, his presence at the firm is sporadic and his absence is sorely felt.

And, after Catherine Piper helps her 83-year-old friend, Adele, escape from the hospital where her court assigned conservator had placed her, Alan Shore steps in to help Adele regain control of her life.

Episode Quotes
Ivan Tiggs: By the way, Shirley, I’m having an affair.
Shirley: Ivan, you do not disappoint. You’ve been married four weeks.
Ivan Tiggs: Seemed like five.

Denny: Shirley, you’re my girl…. I rarely look at peoples faces other than my own, but your pallor was telling my something. Man trouble?

Shirley: Because of you, Paul didn’t keep his meeting with the building manager and Brad stiffed him. Now we don’t have elevator service before 7AM and I had to walk up fourteen flights of stairs, didn’t you?
Denny:I climb the stairs every morning. The elevator’s for Democrats.

Denny: Shirley, a supermarket doesn’t close because the cashier quit.
Denny: Yes, it does, Denny. Otherwise, people would just walk out with the food.

Judge Isabel Hernandez: We will reconvene in six weeks after the examination.
Alan: Six weeks? Your Honor, for Mrs. Freeman, that is a lifetime.
Judge Isabel Hernandez: And in the court system, that’s practically the speed of light.

(Bringing in the Hysterium Machine.)
Ivan Tiggs: God bless us. We found it.
Shirley: The antique, steam-powered, woman pleasing machine is always in the last place you look.

Ivan Tiggs: Denny, you’re here late.
Denny: I run the place.

Denny: So, who’s ass did you have kicked?
Alan: Someone who’s ass thoroughly needed it.
Denny: Good!

Alan: I wonder what I’m turning into?
Denny: Denny Crane.
Alan: I think I’m still a long ways away from that.
Denny: Don’t you worry. You’ll get there.



Cultural References
Ivan Tiggs: That’s what Katie and Matt say and they both have such trusting faces.

Katie and Matt are Katie Couric and Matt Lauer of NBC’s The Today Show.

Denny: Which I’m guessing is not a biography of Earl Monroe.

Earl Monroe was a professional basketball player that was called Earl “The Pearl” Monroe. Monroe played in the NBA from 1967-80 for the Baltimore Bullets and the New York Knicks.

Title: Chitty Chitty Bang Bang

Based off the movie of the same name starring Dick Van Dyke.
