They sing, they laugh and they make embarrassing confessions about what they up to in the 90's when not watching "The Practice."

S04E14 | The Practice | 'Checkmates’
Ellenor represents an underestimated client while Eugene strategizes a  risky gameplan in a heated case with Helen.  Luckily, two solid judges  played by Holland Taylor and Gates McFadden are hand to call balls and  strikes.  Low-cal Mike and Hi-Def Keith cobble this week's episode together with  Advil, Gaff-Tape and as many random electrical components that they can  find. It's about as fun as a Hypospray directly into your ear...with  less satisfying results.
