Dan's life becomes a living hell as he tries to butter his new boss: a little person with a very nasty personality. First appearance by Daniel Frishman as Vincent Daniels.
The new district attorney shows up to observe Dan, who falls short of making a good first impression, and Flo receives attention from a potential suitor.
Plot Summary Edit
Dwarf actor Daniel Frishman makes his first appearance as Dan's new boss Vincent Daniels, who makes up for his lack of height with a towering knowledge of legal matters--not to mention a mile-wide mean streak. After observing Dan, who did not take kindly to his constant critiquing of his court demeanor, he threatens to fire him as Assistant D.A. and replace him with a new prosecutor, before he checks his conviction record and decides to keep him as his assistant. Curiously, the more Vincent threatens to make Dan's life a living hell, the more Dan (John Larroquette) likes it! Meanwhile, court matron Flo (Florence Halop) is squired by a very strange gentleman.
