Marathon Ally McBeal

Here’s an article to make funnier your Ally McBeal marathon (yes, it’s possible !). The idea is to look for for some repetitive things. I listed them for you and you can use them either to test your memory or to make a drinking game out of it (just one sip at the time, or else it’ll be very hard very soon). There is no major spoiler on this article as long as you’re only reading the list of the season you are currently watching 😉

You can find similar lists for other shows here.

    2. Someone is referring to John by calling him « the biscuit ».

    5. Renee & Georgia are on the same room.
    6. Ling is doing something altruist (yes, it happens)

    2. Someone is saying John’s last name (Cage).
    3. Richard says something homophobic or sexist. It’s almost each time he speaks, so limit yourself at once per scene.
    4. Elaine & Renee are on the same room (don’t forget that one).
    5. Ling & Nell are talking to each other.
    6. Larry doesn’t wear his glasses (unless you prefer play this game when he wears them)

    9. A non-important character seen in a previous episode is coming back (especially among the clients).

If you are like me caught in your marathon because you want to hear “just one more bygone”, you can make a t-shirt, a mug or anything you want out of it on Redbubble 😉
