Heartache, Mitch*

As many of you know or are quickly learning, law school lays waste to relationships. The stress, the workload, the isolating and foreign nature of studying law, they all contribute to piss off the significant others in your lives. And when those relationships collapse, who's waiting to make it all better?

In this week's episode, Carrie-Ann's boyfriend Josh comes to visit. It does not go well.

*This week's title is taken from The Firm, the movie based on John Grisham's novel of the same name. Good book, decent movie, but Wilford Brimley's turn as DeVasher, the firm's security chief, is one of the most spectacularly hilarious things I have ever seen on film. There's a scene where he's confronting Tom Cruise's character, Mitch, about the compromising photos the firm has of him with the girl on the beach. The quotes from that scene have entered the stuff of lore and legend with my college buddies.
