On the last episode of Boston Legal
, his ex-flame Phoebe Prentice called Alan (James Spader
) to attest to the innocence of her husband in the murder of a nurse. Unbeknownst to her, Alan was secretly hoping that her husband was guilty and convicted to get a second chance at Phoebe. Meanwhile, Denny thought things would work out for Alan since the client looked kind of unlikable and the jury would most likely rule against him. It was a moral and professional dilemma on Crane, Poole & Schmidt.

) has to help his sister Joy (Annie Potts) in her quest for the identity of the father of her son.
