Bethany Horowitz asks Alan Shore to help her out with a case against a large tobacco company. But when it turns out that the defense attorney is Phoebe Prentice, an old flame of Alan's, he finds himself distracted and fears that he won't be able to perform in court. Meanwhile, Denny is distraught over his own personal lack of performance in the bedroom.
Alan Shore: Twenty degrees starboard.
Denny Crane: Is that right or left?
Alan Shore: I mean port! No, port!
Denny Crane: Hey, I'm the Captain!
Alan Shore: Will you be quiet! It's right in front of us.
Denny Crane: Is that how you plan to try this case?
Alan Shore: Don't start with me, Denny. Alright? Do you have any idea how many people die every day from cigarettes?
Denny Crane: Oh, please, what else is new? Tobacco kills, big deal.
Alan Shore: Did you just say, "Big deal?"
Denny Crane: Well, it's old news.
Alan Shore: Well, first of all it's not just old news. It's absolutely current. The tobacco industry is more powerful today...
Denny Crane: It's boring!
Alan Shore: Well, have we all just been desensitized? Smoking kills. Whatever. We've all just gone numb.
