Goofs

Scott asks Denise "When did they make a left turn on red legal in Massachusetts?" A left turn on red is legal in Massachusetts if you are turning onto a one-way street. In the scene no cars pass behind Scott and Denise in the opposite direction, so she should not have been pulled over. See more »

Quotes

[to the jury]
Alan Shore: Last night I went to bed with a book, not nearly as much fun as a 29 year old, but the book contained a speech by Adlai Stevenson. The year was 1952, he said 'The tragedy of our day is the climate of fear in which we live and fear breeds repression.

Strong Political Statement
28 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I really wish more people had seen this episode. I am not a regular viewer, and I came across this episode by accident. the Director makes a strong political statement, that was probably overlooked due to the nature of the show. Regardless, Alan Shore's closing statement for Melissa Hughes implied that the US government has been violating our civil liberties. These instances are in fact, real.

I strongly urge all to view the episode and follow up on these subjects: Pier 57 (2004 Republican National Convention- New York), Special Ops/Delta Force (Austin Texas), and Free Speech Zones. All of these instances actually happened, and demonstrate how our government is obstructing or completely ignoring our civil Liberties. Kudos to the Director, I just wish more had watched this episode...
