At Crane, Poole & Schmidt, Denny Crane (William Shatner) and Alan Shore appear before Judge Eugene Young, and Hannah Rose (Rebecca De Mornay) recuperates from the punch she suffered at the hands of Ellenor.

Episode Quotes
Manny Quinn: I’m not the actual lawyer. You gotta talk to one of the boys about . . .
Lenny Pescatore: He brings in cases.
Jimmy: Fraud cases. He’s got doctors on the take.
Lenny Pescatore: We don’t need to know none of that. We wanna help people that need help. We need
cash flow. That man over there’s a cash cow. Look at the size of him.

A.D.A. Susan Alexander: Am I ready to plead?
Denny Crane: The jury has a legal right to free him if they want to, and that’s where I come in. When I get up to speak, they’re gonna want to let him go.
A.D.A. Susan Alexander: Ya think?
Denny Crane: It’s our nature, Susan. We’re Americans. It’s our God-given duty to free people, even if they don’t particularly want to be freed. We’re liberators at our core, Susan. (Stands nose-to-nose with ADA Alexander)
A.D.A. Susan Alexander: I’ll ask you not to stand so close to me.
Denny Crane: (Steps back) All I need is one—one juror who thinks that Walter Shepley is a victim. Do you
really want to bet I can’t get one?

Episode References
Jimmy Berluti: I thought Bec was coming.
Ellenor Frutt: She got tied up in probate.
