Meanwhile, Grace is frustrated in her attempts to prosecute a young black man who accidentally shot and crippled a security guard who stopped him for suspected shop lifting because the defending lawyer Lee Atkins, a civil rights black activist, goes to the limits of ethics to derail Grace's case by bringing up the issue of racism, and even calling Grace a racist in open court. Dave Meyer continues his pursuit of Roxanne by offering her one of his many cars for her to drive and offers her to house sit for him. Also, Victor finally brings the elusive twins to visit the office.
