Cast off your virgin whites and meet your slasher. There’s something so Freudianly accurate about horror flicks. Halloween is suddenly as much of a singleton hell as Valentine’s Day so it called for a slumber party full of the new Cage and Fish bar association and that renowned sweetie Norman Bates.

Wouldn’t you like to see more of the lawyer’s letting their hair down outside the court?

John had a serious case of the Freuds as well; shapely womanly parts constantly slipped his tongue thanks to new client Myra. It seems that Renee and Georgia’s angelic client Chris felt he had to abandon his job because the aforementioned three-dimensional Jessica Rabbit has ways of turning no’s into yes’s. John could have testified on the prosecution’s losing behalf; he experienced Myra like a Mrs. Robinson minus the icky age thing.

Do you believe Ally is John’s soul mate even though he is always drawn to pariahs (Nelle, Myra)?

Meanwhile, Richard’s foot was lodged in his infamous mouth as he and partner in non-discretion Ling dealt with a client who didn’t want to take a physical exam for a job. Cindy is a beautiful woman in transition complete with her very own dumb stick. And, a jittery Richard wanted to crawl under the table every time colleague Mark became moony-eyed over the woman whom he knew only as a staunch Catholic

Did Mark and Cindy really have chemistry or was it a Crying Game stunt?

Ally and the rest of the Spice Girls were seeking a love connection too, so they set up model night at the bar. Putting on their best disco duds, (Ally in Jagger Lips T-shirt) they basked in the undivided male attention until her ex- Brit twit crashed the party. Out in the fringes new guy Larry (Robert Downey Jr.) witnessed the event in silence, perfectly Chaplinesque and attired in a somehow totally chic tablecloth shirt. What he saw was Brian, so bitter that lemons would melt in his mouth pontificating on Ally‘s lack of reverence for their coffin dwelling relationship.

Was Ally wrong to seek some satisfaction so soon after the break-up?

Regardless, at the end of the day the lady lawyer and The Biscuit licked their cupid wounds dancing together, but alone again, naturally.
