Alan Shore, Boston Legal
I cried so much watching this scene.
What is it with James Spader calling women bitches in parking lots? I thought I was imagining it but having both clips side by side, I’m certain this scene in The Practice (episode 13, season 8) is a Pretty in Pink reference. Perhaps it isn’t as blatant as the one in Boston Legal, when Spader makes that comment about William Shatner (who plays Denny Crane) being pretty in pink dressed as a flamingo, but the whole set-up, the word play… it’s too uncannily similar. How cool is it though that Betty White gets Molly Ringwald her payback? 19 years might be a long time, but still. A comment like that must’ve reeked.
