A disabled law student takes Harry's refusal of her prom invitation as a slap against her handicap.


When a wheelchair-bound protégée of Harry's expresses romantic interest in him, he becomes aware of some uncomfortable feelings about her disability.

Plot Summary

Wheelchair-bound law student Kristen (Barbara C. Adside), a protégée of Judge Harry T. Stone (Harry Anderson), asks Harry to escort her to her graduate prom. When Harry balks (as he has always previously balked whenever she'd invited him anywhere), Kristen accuses him of being prejudiced against the handicapped -- and he begins to brood over the possibility that she might be right. Selma Diamond makes her last appearance as court matron Selma Hacker in this, the final episode of Night Court's second season.
