Lana disrupts the proceedings after taking a powerful cold medicine.
Plot Summary Edit
Court clerk Lana takes medicine for a virus and suffers the many side effects, such as bouts of depression mingled with euphoria and a startling release of her inhibitions (she lays a kiss on Harry!). She scales the library bookcase like a monkey in Harry's chambers, becomes emotionally distraught when she believes Harry "led her on" with their kiss, leads Harry throughout the courtroom, ranting and raving about being betrayed, even at one point breaking out in song! Fans of Jack Riley (of The Bob Newhart Show) should get a kick out of his jerk clown, a repulsive creep who appears before the court after several charges including disorderly conduct.\
