Richard finds himself handling a trial at the last minute with only thirty hours to prepare. But after working all night his exhaustion makes him deal awkwardly and carelessly with the victim's family.

With Tony giving Richard little support, another courtroom dressing down from Judge Walker ensues.

An angry Richard marches out of court, and smack into Lisa Simpson, an attractive woman who's not impressed at being knocked off her bike. But Conrad's misguided romantic advice helps to motivate Richard, who later finds a way to impress her.

David is ready and raring to go for the first day of the Quinn trial, but it's derailed even before it begins by the prejudicial ranting of a shock jock.

And after the day from hell, Erin falls off the wagon, fights with Jimmy Butcher, and ends up in the surprised arms of Ben.

Ben and Julie decide to become more than 'friends with benefits', but their exclusive relationship is immediately at risk when Erin comes knocking on Ben's door.
