'The Whole Truth': Judge Likens a Legal Motion to a Coffeemaker (VIDEO)

Judge Likens a Motion to Coffeemaker on 'Whole Truth''The Whole Truth' (Wed., 10PM ET on ABC) pits attorney Jimmy Brogan (Rob Morrow) against prosecutor Kathryn Peale (Maura Tierney). They're used to working on opposite sides of the courtroom. But things get unpredictable when eccentric judges are thrown into the mix.

Peale confidently cites a previous case to one judge to prove spousal privilege doesn't apply in that particular situation. In a convoluted way, she sticks to her argument. Brogan tells the judge, "This is logic wrapped in nonsense chasing its own tail."

The whole thing reminds the judge of a coffeemaker her sister bought her "which had way too many bells and whistles ... [But] after reading the directions -- which were remarkably lucid -- I figured it out and it makes a damn good cup of joe."

So ... does this mean the motion is granted?
