- Is Diane so oblivious that she was unable to recognize Grace's voice on Alicia's ringtone in the background? Obviously, she's had inklings that there's some sort of relationship between Alicia and Will for quite a while, and seems like she's finally put the pieces together, and is responding in an interestingly passive-aggressive way (the sexual harassment video at the end of the episode was hysterical).
- Josh Charles is a devout Baltimore sports fan, and I suspect the writers were having more than a little fun tweaking him for that with the plotline about Will's (prior?) gambling problem. (Also, credit to the writers for working in continuity--Scott Porter is off wooing Rachel Bilson and Jaime King on Hart of Dixie, so we can't see Blake, but we at least get a reference.) Charles has had a pretty good season this year, with him getting to play off not just Marguiles, but Lisa Edelstein, and to do something other than bark orders.
- With respect to the "secret" deposition transcripts, even assuming that such depositions would be allowed, anyone think that the government would allow such videotapes to be recorded, much less released to opposing counsel in a subsequent case? Even if the videotapes were released, wouldn't the lips be blurred as well to avoid using a lip reader to circumvent confidentiality? I'm willing to cut some slack in the name of good television--people sitting reading deposition transcripts doesn't make for good entertainment--but given how generally good the show has been about keeping it somewhat plausible, it annoys.
