The next time, I want you to have a date in mind., 8 September 2008
Author: lastliberal from United States

The Closer is always going to be good when Frances Sternhagen and Barry Corbin appear as Brenda's parents, Will Ray and Clay Johnson.

Clay is especially funny as he is pushing for Brenda and Fritz (Jon Tenney) to get married.

While her parents are visiting, Brenda is trying to solve the murder of a hairstylist on a TV show. The primary suspect is her scumbag battering husband, but it turns out that he is innocent. There is another battering scumbag involved and the woman was just in the way.

Brenda solves the case and lays down the law to her father. Of course, Fritz lays down the law to her as well.
