The Whole Truth

Synopsis: Defense attorney Richard Ramsay takes on a personal case when he swears to his widowed friend, Loretta Lassiter, that he will keep her son Mike out of prison. Charged with murdering his father, Mike initially confesses to the crime. But as the trial proceeds, chilling evidence about the kind of man that Boone Lassiter really was comes to light. While Ramsay uses the evidence to get his client acquitted, his new colleague Janelle tries to dig deeper - and begins to realize that the whole truth is something she alone can uncover.

with his son Mike,

and then round trip to Dallas.

And what was the

purpose of these trips,

if you remember?

The second, Dallas,

was business.

The first was to

take Mike, his son,

to look at colleges...

UCLA and Stanford.

We were supposed to go up

to Oregon to see, I think,

Reed, but they decided

to come home instead.


It's your call,

but Stanford is one of the

top schools in the country

and you got in early.

I mean, look, I'm

happy to go to Reed,

check it out, but...

It's weird.

Maybe we should just declare

victory and head home early, huh?

Surprise your mom?

And how

would you characterize

the relationship

between father and son,

between Boone and Mike?

The trip home got kind of tense.

Mike seemed like

a typical teenager,

sullen with a little attitude.

Listen, we're gonna skip

Portland and head back.

- Tell the guys for me, will you?

- Okay.

You think you're old enough to

handle a piece of ass like that?

You don't

know why Mike was sullen.


Thank you.

Ms. Morley.

I've never been

on a private plane.

Help me out here.

The customer can bring

whoever he wants with him.


Mr. Lassiter would

do that sometimes.

Of course.

- Men and women.

- Sure.

Other lawyers, mostly.

And on the trip to Los Angeles,

he brought his son.


Yours is a service

industry, right?


And it's competitive.


So you have to provide

good service.


Did you like servicing

Mr. Lassiter?

Pardon me?

I'm asking if

he was a good client.


He was professional, but fun,

pleasant to be around.

Ms. Morley,

when Mr. Lassiter

brought a woman,

or women with him on the plane,

did you ever leave their

names off the manifest?

Objection, your honor.

Women on the manifest?

How is this relevant?
