Storyline

Oliver clears the room with a long-winded speech to the Bar Association advocating the hiring of ex-convicts. He regrets his words when he's forced into hiring Willie Dunhill, a man who's spent so many years in prison he can't adjust to life on the outside. When Willie's not reminiscing about his old criminals buddies in stir, he's calling Oliver "warden." Lisa picks up on his prison slang and starts talking like a B-movie gangster.
