Storyline

One of Christian Kane's many talents is showcased when Eliot works a musical con. This is appropriate, since Eliot is the only one who gets why the songbird client, Kaye Lynn, dealt with the thuggish country music producer, Mitchell Kirkwood (Jon Schneider) at all. Parker is sporting more skirts for her casual wear; Sophie is the one with punk blue clip-on hair weave and Terminator glasses. As she goes rock and roll, Nate goes country. Eliot is a genuine hottie, Kenneth Crane (whether one likes lite country or not.) Hardison and Parker must grab the digital masters. Will Eliot follow a new star with Kaye Lynn, to be a part of the next Johnny and June? Written by LA-Lawyer

Goofs

There are a number of errors during Eliot's fight in the recording studio as the story flips back and forth. The most glaring being when Eliot hits the goon with the drumsticks and the next shot that comes back to Eliot shows him just bringing the drumsticks into the fight. See more »

Quotes

Alec Hardison: [as Eliot sings Hardison notices that his voice equipment doesn't appear to be working] Nate something's wrong!
Nathan Ford: Oh? What is it?
Alec Hardison: Uhh, the system's not working. Something's wrong.
Nathan Ford: [Nate is listening] No it's fine.
Alec Hardison: [Only looking at the equipment and not listening to Eliot sing] No it's not fine I'm looking at it right now, it's not correcting his voice!
Nathan Ford: [Nate and the audience listen to the song] That's because it doesn't need correcting.
[the team stops and just listens]
