Boston Legal: Spring Fever

Denny Crane and Alan Shore travel to the Los Angeles office of Crane, Poole & Schmidt for business and wind up unexpectedly taking on a case with a decidedly Hollywood flavor. Once there, they spend time with senior partner Barry Goal, a powerful and cagey attorney who, like Crane, is no stranger to the spotlight.

Back in Boston, Shirley Schmidt must once again defend Professor Clifford Cabot, this time on charges of soliciting a prostitute -- an act he claims was purely for the purposes of academic research.

Denise Bauer and Marlene Stanger, who are both vying for partnership at the firm, compete to assist Schmidt in the case.

Meanwhile, Brad Chase’s teenaged niece is accused of giving pharmaceutical drugs to a boy at a party and is charged with his murder.

Episode Notes
This episode aired at 9pm EST just before BL: Los Angelas to make a 2 hour season finale.

Clifford Cabot: Shirley, could you see about getting my shoelaces back?

Mr. Cabot was in jail and when you are arrested and placed in a holding cell, they make you take your shoelaces out so you can't hurt yourself with them.

All branch offices of Crane, Poole, and Schmidt are almost identical, especially the main lobby.

The Lone Ranger Theme was being played while Denise chased Marlene.

Alan becomes Denny's advocate or "Plug Puller", as Denny puts it, in case Denny becomes incapacitated and cannot make his own medical decisions.

Episode Quotes
Alan: Oh dear, this could be my fault. I seem to have mated them both. Yes, I did alright. Jane... Sheila.
Shirley: Alan, this is absolutely...
Alan: Wrong. Yes, office policy manuals and such. I know Shirley, but you'll just have to cut me some slack this time of year.
Paul: This time of year?
Alan: It's spring. I'm in heat.

Denny: I hear you're in heat.
Alan: It seems so.
Denny: Me too, we must be on the same cycle.

(Talking about Denny in a wet suit.)
Shirley: How did you get into that thing anyway?
Denny: A lot of Vaseline and Chuck in word processing helped.

Barry Gold: Miss Reese,... Denny Crane
Courtney Reese: Hello.
Denny: I'm sorry,... the Denny Crane.... Crane, Poole, and Sperm,... Schmidt.

Marlene Stanger: In your expert opinion as a film maker, what is Mr. Cabot doing in the film.
Wes Craven: He's acting. He's directing the action and, of course, he's screwing.
Marlene Stanger: As part of his performance?
Wes Craven: Yes.
Marlene Stanger: So we have acting, directing, cinematography...
Wes Craven: If you include his humming, he's doing the score.

Cultural References
Denny: You're up, Alan. I got a slot open,... Handcock.

A reference to John Handcock, one of the 52 men who signed the Declaration of Independence. His signature was very large and prominent to let the King of England know who he was. That action has spurred the phrase, "Put your John Handcock down", and variations there of.

Episode References
Denise gets the fictional Little Jimmy Snack Cakes to eat from the break room. These snacks were first mentioned in the episode, "Deep End of the Poole", where a man claimed they were the reason for his diabetes and obesity.
