Referral We frequently see Paul directing clients to Perry, but I believe this is the first - and only - time he gets a referral from (Terrence) Clay. (How did newcomer Tolliver know Clay in the first place? I may have missed the scene, but it seems a stretch they would be acquainted.) Notcom, 082620.
+ In a scene that may have been cut from the version you saw, Clay at one point explains that Tolliver and he had been in WWII together but had not seen each other for 20 years. Fred Flintstone 12/04/2020.
>Yabba dabba did: thanks Fred...I figured as much (hence the equivocation in my comments); still it seems like a stretch: you end up in a town - well all right, a large city, but... AND you run into an old army buddy AND he just happens to know the foremost criminal lawyer in the land , THEN your second wife in a row dies mysteriously!! Now we know why it's called LA: the Land of Amazing happenstance ! Notcom, 120320
++ Admittedly, I'm watching the syndicated version, but the impression I got was not that Tolliver had 'run into' Clay, but that he had probably kept track over the years and, since Tolliver was 'on the make', he looked Clay up. Even had Clay not been a friend of Perry’s, it's likely he would have known of him by reputation. OLEF641 9/9/21
