Matt blowing his entire retainer check on Kelly's ring should get him disbarred. He's not earned those fees and so he cannot spend the entire $15K. I hate that (spoiler alert) he only gets suspended. In almost all jurisdictions, it's grounds to be disbarred for mishandling client funds.
I forgot that Noah was the one to dump Donna and not the other way around. Noah's blithe little, "I've spent a lot of time getting over this and I cannot go back" is a bunch of crap too. Just last season he was using his dead gf/fiancee as an excuse to keep Val at arms' length (before he raped her, but I digress). Noah's only redeeming quality was his ability to deadpan a "whatever, dude" attitude toward Brandon and Dylan when needed. I cannot stand that we have to see his downward spiral and his attempts to save some chick and her daughter that he meets in AA later this season. As soon as he and Donna broke up, we should have been able to say, "and we never saw him again."
