Episode Summary

"Ass Fat Jungle" / Season 2, Episode 8
A story of sleepovers, fat lips, hit-and-remember and having your best friends head examined.
Broadcast: November 15, 2005
Alan tries to find someone to sleep with him when he sleepwalks and almost falls off his balcony railing, but given his reputation, this is no easy task. Shirley, Denny and Paul represent Jason Matheny (16), accused of running over an old man. Denise defends Dr. Glouberman, accused of injecting women's lips with fat cells from his own buttocks against their knowledge. Denny gets tested for Alzheimer's.

From ABCMedianet.com: When Alan Shore experiences the return of his night terrors - where he sleepwalks and could physically hurt himself - he asks his new, attractive secretary, Melissa, if she would moonlight and sleep with him to keep him from hurting himself. Meanwhile, if Alan agrees to get an MRI for his night terrors, then Denny Crane will agree to undergo one to determine whether he has Alzheimer's or Mad Cow disease. Meanwhile, Shirley Schmidt is reluctant to take a case in which the teenaged son of a rich client is accused of vehicular manslaughter, and she becomes even more reluctant when she has to interview the only eye witness, an elderly woman with Alzheimer's. And Denise Bauer is asked to represent two women who claim that Boston's most famous plastic surgeon injected his own butt fat into their lips, when they believed the fat was coming from their bodies

Episode Dialogue


[Thanks to Carolyn for feeding me dialogue from the Eastern time zone]

Denny: I say if a woman's brain's turned to oatmeal, let's throw in some raisins and have her for breakfast.
__

Man on next balcony: Hey, pal! What are you doing?
Alan: Thank you.

Man on next balcony: Hey, pal! What are you doing?

Alan tells his assistant about the night terrors*
Alan Shore: I need somebody to guard me at night.
Melissa: When you say guard?
Alan Shore: I need you to lie in the bed with me. Should I get up to run outside? Stop me.
Melissa: How stupid do you think I am?
Alan Shore: So you’ll think about it?

Alan Shore: I need somebody to guard me at night.
__

Alan: Denny. Night terrors. They can be potentially life-threatening.
Denny Crane: Because we're friends, I'm going to tell you something nobody else knows. *Denny delicately, but deliberately removes Alan's hand from his* I'm homophobic.
Alan: *matter-of-factly* I'm stunned.
Denny: I'd do almost anything for you. But I cannot share your bed. Be a man. Get a girl.

Denny: I'd do almost anything for you. But I cannot share your bed. Be a man. Get a girl.

Alan: As immune as you are to any sexual advances on my part, I have had the occasional fantasy about the Michelin Man.

Alan: As immune as you are to any sexual advances on my part, I have had the occasional fantasy about the Michelin Man.

Alan: Hmm. Good work. You can go!

Alan: Hmm. Good work. You can go!



Did You Know... ?

James Spader wears glasses.  He wishes Alan Shore did. There was one episode in season 8 of The Practice where he got away with was allowed to wear them. Name that episode. He did not actually wear them in "Ass Fat Jungle" - just during a break in filming?



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..
