Storyline

Claire is excited to give Haley and Alex a great experience for "Bring Your Daughter to Work Day" but the staff is not making it easy, and Phil takes Luke and Manny's class out for community service day, which becomes a teachable moment in more ways than one. Elsewhere, Gloria is thrilled to be on jury duty leaving Jay to help out at Joe's pre-school and he is not happy about it at all. Cam and Mitch disagree over which of their friends to invite to their party, so could Gloria help mediate?

The camera cuts away to show the defendant, and when it cuts back to Gloria, the badge is pinned on backwards, with a completely white space showing. The camera cuts away and back again, and the badge is back on properly, with information showing. See more »

The Verdict - S07E05
16 December 2018 | by rganSee all my reviews

A fun throwaway episode, there's a nice disperse for the characters with Burrell's Phil interacting with both Luke and Manny, while Bowen's Claire spends her time with Haley and Alex and the playful time spent with Vegara's Gloria and Cam and Mitch in amongst the running theme of the people in charge for the day feeling the need to prove themselves to their family. The best interaction is in O'Neill's Jay quietly combatting with Vicki Lewis' Erica, the dynamic of the two working well as Jay is taken well outside of his comfort zone. While by no means a standout episode, "The Verdict" is a successful time spent with the characters, each of which are paired up with people they don't often have stories centred around.
