After Hours: Peter enjoys playing the bagpipes so much that David Kelley included it in a script. He resides in Los Angeles with his wife Marsue.

John Cage: Eccentric doesn't begin to describe Fish's partner. Arguably the most brilliant attorney in the firm, he often asks "To Take A Moment" whenever something "Troubles" him. Among his quirks: he hears things therefore he hums & he has an automatic toilet flusher because an unclean bowl troubles him.

Why The Biscuit?: According to David Kelley, John Cage is nicknamed "The Biscuit" because that is the way he imagined him as a child. A little doughboy like kid, always being prodded and poked by the other kids.
