Broadcast: October 10, 2006

A story of a consuming friendship.

Alan Shore’s attraction to Shirley Schmidt increases as the two of them handle the case of a homeless man accused of cannibalism; Denny Crane finds himself drawn to the feisty, small-statured Bethany (Meredith Eaton-Gilden) while he helps her try a case against an HMO; and Jeffrey Coho continues his defense of accused murderer Scott Little (Ashton Holmes) in the most high profile murder case Boston has seen in years. Denise and Brad wrestle with their relationship while Alan and Denny wrestle in full WWF regalia.

Episode Dialogue

Clarence: Any good news?
Shirley: Well... "Prime Time" wants to have you on.
Alan: During sweeps, they want you to eat Diane Sawyer.


Denny: Why are you dressed as an Indian?
Alan: Growing up, my favorite wrestler was Chief Jay Strongbow. This is how he'd enter the ring.
Denny: You look like one of the Village People.


Alan Shore: Shouldn’t we pee in a cup first, I don’t
Denny Crane: Mine are naturally high, let’s go.


Jane Baker: What I saw next… I couldn’t believe my eyes.
The jury is rapt, leaning in to hear.
A.D.A. Frank Ginsberg: What?
Alan Shore: Not to interrupt, but might this be a good time to take a break?
Judge Clark Brown: Sit down.
A.D.A. Frank Ginsberg: Tell us what you say, Ms Baker.
Alan Shore: For those of us who don’t watch the news, or the district attorney’s self-serving press conference.


Jane Baker: Yes, I’m sure. It was the most horrible disgusting, awful, horrible grotesque thing I ever saw in my life,--
Alan Shore: She left out--
Judge Clark Brown: Shocking.
Alan Shore: There you go.
