2. Ass Fat, Dr. Barry Glouberman
1-SB: Tori Pines, Kiersten Blau and Denise Bauer Tori and I have been friends since I won’t even tell you how long
Tori/Torrey Pines
The character name of one of the plaintiffs in the Glouberman case is Tori Pines. This is also the name of a tree [Torrey Pine] and a California State reserve near San Diego. I spent occasional weekends exploring the trails and views there. The fact that I accidentally wandered onto the nearby nude beach [you've been warned] shouldn't be construed as anything but..

3. Alan’s night terrors
2-SB: Alan Shore: Would you like to earn some extra money, Melissa?
Melissa: How stupid do you think I am? Alan Shore: So you’ll think about it?
3-SB: Alan Shore: By the way Melissa, as immune you are to any sexual advances on my part, I have had the occasional fantasy about the Michelin man.
E!Online talked to “Melissa” Excerpt: I talked to the lucky girl [Marisa Coughlan, who's playing Shore's new assistant, Melissa], who hinted that her icy attitude toward Alan isn't going to last long. "I become quite smitten with [Alan], because he's so bright, and he's come to my rescue. At this point, I'm not quite sure if it's going to go further, but it's definitely a possibility. I started with three [episodes], and then I did a few more, and now, I think it kind of depends. They're trying to figure out where they can go with my character, if I should go back as a love interest or [not].

The interesting trivia/ML connection from - at the end, on the balcony, Spader said the word "moonlighting' and "Someone to watch over me" was used which was also used in a famous ML ep (the Linda Ronstandt version)--and Phil Neel edited that BL (as well as help edit the ML one) ep and we know he had some input in that choice of music.

Another superb episode of BL…at the end was a rendition of "Someone To Watch Over Me"…..any idea who's recording this was? My thought is that it is done by Etta James....give it a listen. She's fantastic!
Kris Banister - Possible Story Lines
- Alan and Shirley have to handle a case together and during a late night prep session things turn sexual. This is a one-time affair and Shirley will be able to use the possibility of another opportunity as a "carrot" to get Alan to possibly do things her way in future episodes.
- Paul actually has a case!! It currently appears that he just shows up to collect his big paychecks. We would actually see him in the court room working a case.
