Ally McBeal Wiki

Buried Pleasures is the 2nd episode of Season Three of Ally McBeal.


Billy and Renee have issues. Ling and Ally share some lesbian passion. The Biscuit, after erroneously over hearing Nelle's fantasy wish, spanks Nelle and gets kicked out of her apartment.


Ling confronts Ally alone and asks about kissing a woman. Ling admits to having a dream about kissing another woman and gets very insecure about her sexuality. Ling and Ally agree to go to dinner to "work on their friendship."

At the dinner, Ling and Ally "dirty dance" to make the guys there frustrated and excited at the same time, as Ling put it. Ling admits to Ally that the dream she had was with Ally. Once they leave dinner and arrive at Ally's apartment, the two find themselves in an awkward situation. Was there supposed to be a goodnight kiss? Well, Ally offers an invitation for some coffee but Ling declines. Ling starts to leave only to turn around to give Ally a kiss on the cheek.

Meanwhile, John and Richard are having issues with their women. They are having problems pleasing them and they feel as if they have lost it. After searching on the internet, Richard says that according to a survey, women love to be spanked. They leave their brush on the bed wanting their men to spank them. John stores this in his mind and feels rejuvenated.

Renee and Billy are involved in a sexual harassment case involving a woman who is believed to be a slut who dresses too sexy at work. Renee ends up calling Billy a male chauvinist pig. Tension builds between the two and Renee refuses to collaborate with Billy regarding the closing statements. Renee's closing statement wins over the jury and she and Billy win the case.

Back at the firm, Ally and Ling find themselves locked up in a room. Their curiosities have become too overwhelming and they finally kiss. This wasn't a quick peck on the lips either. They passionately went at it and also went for seconds. Later on, Ally and Ling agree that they still like men because of that one extra variable men possess. Ally also promises Ling that she will never kiss another woman.

John, while in bed with Nelle, tricks her to lean over him to get a present he has for her under the bed. However, there was no present under the bed. Instead, John grabs the brush and starts repeatedly spanking Nelle. Nelle gets outraged and springs out of bed. She screams at John and says that she should call the police and kicks him out.
