Check out this item by my crossover compadre, Thom Holbrook:
He mentions in the piece that when the name of Melville's restaurant was mentioned, little bells went off in his head, but he couldn't remember at first why it sounded important.
I had the opposite problem. I recognized its significance right away, but forgot all about it by the time the episode ended.
But that's the way it goes in this biz. Thom scoops me and I tip my non-Hat Squad hat to him.
But if David E. Kelley does someday put a "Poobala" reference in one of his shows, it sounds like I may have to tip my Hat Squad hat to Thom!
