Wackner decides to adjudicate two instances of 'cancel culture.'

The first is a college professor fired for using a word similar to the n-word. 

Marissa doesn't give it her all at first, believing the professor was unfairly canceled, but after realizing things aren't as black and white as she made it, she steps up her game.

The professor is ultimately sentenced to cleaning the college's bathrooms.

The second case involves a problematic comedian, who masturbated into plants in front of multiple women.

Marissa brings her A-game but is upset when she learns about Wackner's possible conflict of interest.

She confronts him, and he goes off on her.

He later apologizes.

Wackner ends up sentencing the comedian to three weeks in jail.

Diane and Liz represent the family of an unarmed Black teenage girl who died after being tased by a white police officer.

However, they're thrown for a spin when the white police officer is gunned down.

They rush to figure out a way for the judge to declare a mistrial but are one juror short.

After a right-wing TV commentator "outs" Diane and Liz as a lesbian couple, they use that to their advantage to secure a mistrial.

The Good Fight Season 5 Episode 7 Quotes

Judge Abernathy: Thank you for stopping by. I've been worried that I was insensitive, and I wanted to get a gut check from both of you.
Diane: Sure, Your Honor. What is it?
Judge Abernathy: I've been watching the two of you throughout the case, and I realized after what I heard last night that your discomfort made sense to me. If my wife and I ever tried to work together, our relationship wouldn't last. So more power to you. I just… I'm a great friend of the LGBTQ+ community.
Diane: Thank you, Your Honor.
Liz: Yeah, actually you know what, Your Honor, there is, there is something that you could settle for us.
Judge Abernathy: Oh great, certainly.
Liz: One of the jurors, the one from the church, I think she's noticed how close we are together. And I hope you don’t mind me saying it…
Diane: It’s been on my mind as well. She did see us out in the hall together.
Liz: And we're just worried that our relationship may have played into her bias.
Diane: It would just be good to be certain, don’t you think, darling?

Wackner: I understand you want your career back. You’re a funny man. It takes hard work to get funny. Maybe you think that’s enough, but you haven't done anything for the women you hurt. You haven't made amendments.
Joey Battle: Your Honor, I brought my checkbook.
Wackner: You're a rich man, Joey. I think everyone here knows the minute you go back to work, you'll learn back you're fine.
David Cord: Your Honor, everybody deserves a second chance.
Wackner: You know the expression doing your time.
Joey Battle: Your Honor, I haven't worked a major venue in over a year. How much time do you want me to take?
Wackner: Doing time means more than taking time. It means serving your sentence, going to prison. You want to come back? OK, first you got to do your time: three weeks sentence.
