219 - (AP1) Armageddon - Part One 04/11/01|
A criminal investigation threatens to derail the Atlantor Project, as well as Rick's career.
WRITER: Edward Zwick, Marshall Herskovitz DIRECTOR: Marshall Herskovitz
Ozymandias - Percy B. Shelley
Hamlet - William Shakespeare
"The lady doth protest too much..."
Actual quote: "The lady doth protest too much, methinks." - From Hamlet (III, ii, 239)
Description from allshakespeare.com
Queen Gertrude speaks these famous words to her son, Prince Hamlet, while watching a play at court. Gertrude does not realize that Hamlet has staged this play to trap her and her new husband, King Claudius, whom Hamlet suspects of having murdered his father. She also does not realize that the lady who "doth protest too much" is actually herself, as the Player King and Queen represent King Hamlet and Queen Gertrude. The former will be poisoned (in this play within the play) by the king's brother, as in reality (Hamlet suspects) Claudius killed King Hamlet. Gertrude's statement is in response to the play-Queen's repetitive statements of loyalty to and love of her first husband.

A Piece of Work
Jessie in the dress
Enter the DA
... and Miles to go ...
Because you need to know
You've done excellent work
Et tu, Christie?
Bring on the Spanish Inquisition
Are you Rick Sammler?
It looks like AP-1 takes place over 6 days, maybe Monday-Saturday (because most days are at-work or in-court type of days)..
Day #1 -- Breakfast with the boxers; that afternoon Jessie at Karen's and braces talk ; Rick in pink pants and funny slate talk with staff...Miles arrives and talks of portents..
Day #2 -- At 10AM, Karen is downtown and meets Bob Damonjik(?); that night, a suspicious Rick picks Jess up at Karen's and they return to his apartment, where he writes his "food" list and Lily assists Jess with her dress and finds out Eli is "in love" with Carla... (whew!)...and the subpoena is delivered; later, Rick is jittery on the phone with Walter, and Lily tries to get him to calm down.
Day #3 -- Rick meets with the lawyers (Kay Lenz & Assoc.); DA Bob surprises Karen at her office; Rick is still trying to reach Miles, and suggests to Amanda that he may be "in flight"; Lily at PA, tells Christie in no uncertain terms that she'd better not print the article w/o interviewing Rick first; that night, Rick talks to Eli and Jessie, and Lily overhears..
Day #4 -- Lily has waffles ready for E and J, as Karen arrives; Lily and Judy converse on the street; Rick downtown to the hearing, meeting Miles first...and seeing Eli there for him; at Lily's that night, she wants to know everything and wants to hold him to make amends for wanting to know everything especially how this will affect their plans.
Day #5 -- Lily cries at the stove, and Grace and Zoe comfort her; Karen brings the files to DA Bob; that night, Amanda tells Rick to "go home, chief," but Miles arrives and reveals his cancer; Rick struggles over to pick Jess up at Karen's..
Day # 6 -- (Saturday? since we don't see any sign of work or court?) Rick listens that night to Jessie speak about the Romans, hugs her...Lily hugs him and Eli is impressed that she cooked; the Cook County police arrive with their warrant..
That's it in a nutshell... Now, perhaps GB will pick right up where we left off....or close to it...
Setting a date
...and grill for ...
