what do they really want?
28 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Laura is an aspiring lawyer who has talent in art. She decides to enter an art exhibit while all of her other law student friends attend a "suppressed desires" party...theme is what do they really deep down want to be? and dress up as that character. Laura wins third place in the exhibit and finds her suppressed desire.

Character actor Theodore Bikel turns in another marvelous performance as a beleaguered art professor every bit as cantankerous as Kingsfield.

(mental note...are all PHD's this crazy?) perhaps so but then the show wouldn't be half as interesting if they weren't... This is the final season of a wonderful television program. This episode features the future of one of the students a common theme this season. Watch for Bell directing the campus show, Zeitz trying to get hired by a schlock law firm, and Ford spending time in jail wrongly arrested, all in various episodes.
