A rock thrown through the courtroom window and a fake bomb in the judge's chair, threaten the life of Harry Stone and this episode questions who the culprit is, quite a surprise, with homicide detective Womack (the rough noir-like George Murdock, not exactly the most comforting cop, his words to Harry leave him more concerned than feeling safe) on the case. Meanwhile Dan continues to evade a Hispanic shoeshine boy who wants his two dollars. The funniest scenes feature Phil Leeds (what a great face!) who claims to be God! Leeds speaking as the Almighty, using scripture and several incidents from the Bible in relative terms when talking to Harry (or Selma in one inspired scene) and others, is a blast. The people in Harry's court remaining on edge produces some tense but amusing sight gags (like when Bull reenters the courtroom with everyone in attendance ducking for cover!), but the story is kind of scary if one thinks about it. How Leeds' God attempts to comfort Harry, it shows how Night Court finds methods to get alternating story lines to connect so that characters can confront a crisis or obstacle in a meaningful way that progresses the plot. Even though Leeds is nutty as a fruitcake, he does give advice that is food for thought which Harry does apply to his fear of going back into that courtroom.
