Episode Dialogue


Brad: Look. For the relations to be as compatible as they were...
Denise: Okay, let me stop you there. Any man I would be with, he sould say, "sex." He wouldn't use the word "relations," especially not to describe what went on between you and me. We were like... wild apes, Brad.
Brad: Exactly. And if you're so willing to measure a man by his kiss, how 'bout attaching some weight to his ability to ... intercourse.
__

Two uniformed policemen step off the elevator. Ominous music as they approach Melissa.

Melissa: Okay, I paid my taxes. Whatever else it could be, I DID NOT DO it.
Officer #1: We're looking for Alan Shore, please.
Melissa: Alan? Men with guns again? It wasn't ME.
Alan: What's going on?
Officer #1: Alan Shore?
Alan: It depends.
Officer #1: You're under arrest. Please place your hands behind your back.
Alan: Arrest for what?
Officer #1: Aiding and abetting a fugitive, obstruction of justice and conspiracy to aid a defendant to avoid prosecution.
Alan: I think you're confused. My friend Denny gave money to Tom DeLay. All I did -
Officer #1: Please put your hands behind your back. NOW.
Melissa: Alan, please don't joke... they don't look funny.

Six Degrees of the Guest Star

Frank Payne as Phil Mickle - the "full-sized" Payne (the url for his official website is www.frankthebigguy.com ) is perhaps most recognizable from his work on over 300 TV commercials. After starting out in The Second City comedy troupe in his hometown of Chicago, Payne moved to Los Angeles to find more acting opportunities. His growing number of TV and film credits include a role in Garfield: The Movie and being the host of the Discovery Channel series Big!


Larry Miller as Edwin Poole - Miller makes his first appearance of Season 2 (and third overall) as the third named partner on the firm's letterhead. Known for his droll comedy act, Miller has been appearing on TV since winning a televised standup competition called The Big Laff Off (1978). His many movie credits include a role in the James Spader movie Dream Lover (1994), while his TV guest spots include two episodes of the brief David E. Kelley show The Brotherhood of Poland, New Hampshire (2003). Among his current projects, Miller features in the new comedy film Keeping Up With the Steins and is also developing a new original sitcom (starring himself) for TBS.
[Ed. note: I think I still have my ticket stub from when I saw him perform at the University of Puget Sound in the mid-nineties.]
