The writers must have gotten bored. Usually their titles are more original than this.
As the episode opens, Shirley Schmidt (Candice Bergen) is having a meeting with a client (Ed Begley, Jr.) going through a divorce. The marriage is ending and there is one item in dispute. While married, the couple amassed a collection of Victorian erotica. Each wants to keep it all. Even after Shirley points out that, legally, the wife is allowed to have part of it, the husband is extremely reluctant to give it up. He says that his family has done business with the firm for a long time and he wants her to take action. The wife shows up with her lawyer, Ivan Tiggs (Tom Selleck in a recurring role). Shirley mentions that the two of them were involved and either party would be wise to seek alternate counsel. However, neither wants to give up their lawyer.
Ivan is still in love with Shirley, or so he says. She says that since he remarried, he belongs with his wife, Missy.
In the boardroom, Shirley meets with Denny Crane (William Shatner) and Brad Chase (Mark Valley). Since Paul Lewiston (Rene Auberjonois) is taking care of his granddaughter, Fiona, after his daughter Rachel went into rehab for cystal meth addiction ("Stick It"), he isn't around the office much. After Denny makes a comment about Paul's "druggie" daughter, Brad says that Rachel is merely someone who needs help.
One thing Paul has to do is interview a couple of junior associates. This is because Sara Holt (Ryan Michelle Bathe) and Garrett Wells (Justin Mentell) left the firm. With the way the show has been running, though, I would hardly be surprised if one or both returned.
I understand that this season is longer than it would be if last season had not been interrupted for the sake of Grey's Anatomy. The longer storyline arcs are the same technique used on The Practice, when Alan Shore defended a childhood friend accused of murder. For those interested, he lost. Something has gone wrong, here though, in midseason. This show is simply nowhere near the fun and entertaining piece of work it once was.
