Chegwidden 's renewal of her recommendation for accelerated promotion. Diane Schonke, a Navy officer Harm had been dating before she was murdered, which initially made Harm uneasy, though he soon got past it.
However, Mac was unaware of the resemblance until the third season, when Harm had worked out who had really killed Schonke. Harm, Budand later, Sturgis Turnerwho were aware of the resemblance, had never mentioned it to Mac, who only found out by finding a picture of Schonke in Harm's apartment, in an old shoebox; it was then that Harm told her everything.
It was during that same episode that Mac kept Harm from throwing his career away, by inadvertently appearing as the long deceased Lt. Schonke, showing up on the pier wearing one of Harriet's spare uniforms. She also always knows what the time is though she never wears a watch,  and exhibited borderline psychic abilities in a few episodes. She's been watching me all afternoon. Every time I come into the bullpen the eyes of Harriet are upon me.
I have no legal background so forgive any courtroom blunders. See additional note at end of chapter. Roberts' Residence Later that evening. Jennifer said Mac spent all weekend with Harm.
They spend a lot of off work hours together. From what you've said, everything you've got is purely circumstantial and for every reason you give me to conclude they're finally together, I can find a reason to conclude it's still business as usual. Bud made an excellent case. Harriet had to admit she didn't really have very much to go on. Maybe it was finally time to do something about it, but what? If her two dearest friends had finally let their guards down, it was up to Harriet to make sure they made love not war.
Stomping into the kitchen with determination, Harriet had made up her mind.

Operation Make Love would begin! Buckman, do you consider beating your wife to within an inch of her life the behavior of a loving husband? It had been against his better judgement to place Lt. Buckman on the stand, but the Lt. Harm warned his client to answer only yes and no when on the stand.
As soon as he heard the elaboration on his relationship with his wife, Harm knew Mac would spot it and use it to her advantage. As usual she was doing a fine job of it too. Is that why you have continually abused her until she is so broken she has repeatedly had no choice but to seek medical attention? You feel… "Objection, counsel is testifying. You think you're a good, loving husband? But you still think you're justified in beating your not so good wife?
Colonel, if you have a point, get to it. I won't warn you again. She was thankful she was getting to prosecute this one and didn't have to defend the slime. She was also thankful that despite being on opposite sides of such a distasteful case, there didn't seem to be any additional stress on her and Harm's new status.
Buckman had been married for almost 17 years. The abuse in the marriage was only apparent to friends and neighbors over the last four or five years. As is the case with most abusive relationships, the violence had slowly been escalating making it harder for Mrs.
Buckman to hide the damage from her friends. It was especially so on her birthday. For three years in a row he had beaten her so badly on her birthday that she required medical attention at the local emergency room. The physician had been so infuriated at the varying stages of bruising during her last visit, that she'd written across the paperwork, Domestic abuse is a crime — report it. Buckman, and for Mac, she had a good friend and neighbor who had saved all the medical reports from her hospital visits as well as having taken and saved several incriminating photographs.
Buckman finally made a critical mistake when he attacked Mrs. Buckman while she was working in the back yard. One of the neighbors overhearing the crashing of patio furniture called Buckman had been arrested, the local authorities turned him over to military jurisdiction.
Domestic abuse is such a difficult subject to combat. It strikes people of any education or income level.
It's not just the byproduct of poverty or drug abuse. Mac was at least thankful that one thing had changed since she had to tolerate living in an abusive home. When neighbors would call the police about the battles at her house, no matter how badly her mom was banged up, if she refused to press charges, the police couldn't do anything about it. Buckman's advantage, today's law enforcement has the authority to handle domestic abuse more aggressively. When the police arrived on her doorstep, even though she insisted she was fine, the police took one look at her purple face and arrested her husband on the spot.
At least some things were changing. Why should I cut your guy a break? I've got him dead to rights and you know it. Following Mac into her office, "Forfeiture of pay, loss of rank, and he submits to anger management counseling.
Harm thought he knew his marine well all these years, after less than a week of 'dating', he had discovered small nuances in her behavior that he had never noticed before.
He wasn't totally sure if it was because she no longer felt the need to hide things from him, or if it was because he felt it his place to now look for them. Either way, he could tell this case was weighing heavily on Mac. If all he got was a couple of years in the brig, he'd just be someone else's problem when he got out.
What do you say we secure a little early, we can drive down to that Greek restaurant you like by the shore, get away from this place and relax a little. Hiding her exhaustion behind a feigned smile, "That sounds lovely, but maybe another time. I'd really rather just curl up on the sofa after a hot bath and watch some mindless movie.
Maybe have some sesame chicken. If you are, or suspect anyone is being physically abused - Don't ignore it. It doesn't get better and it doesn't just go away. It will only get worse. Chapter 6 Friday night hours Lying in the warm lavender scented bath, Mac could feel the tension literally draining out of her.
Despite her uncanny ability to judge time, she'd managed to lose track of how long she'd been soaking when she heard the knock on the door. Harm had his arm in the air, prepared to knock a second time, when the door flew open. Stepping inside, he closed the door behind him hearing Mac call out, "Be right back," as he caught a flash of powder pink wrapped around glistening flesh racing back to her room.
That momentary glimpse of a wet, practically naked Sarah MacKenzie was already doing things to his body. He needed to focus on something else. The dentist maybe, proctologist would do it, Sec Nav, yeah that's it. Harm refused to allow his thoughts to wander back to Mac while he emptied the cartons of Chinese food and poured himself a drink. Resisting the urge to turn her around and kiss her for real. Harm handed Mac a plate, "No problem, I got you sesame chicken. Harm didn't mind giving Mac all the time she needed to feel comfortable in this relationship, but he really wished she'd stop asking loaded questions.
Deciding to stick with what she meant, and not what he'd like, Harm sat down next to her. Gina Lolabrigita has been raising a daughter and doesn't know which one of three men is the dad. She has to juggle them all so they don't find out they've each been supporting the daughter all these years. Shelly Winters and Lee Grant are great in it too. It's actually a very funny movie. Have you seen this one too? She loved Betty Davis.
It's basically a Cinderella type story set in the 30's after prohibition ends. A bootlegger played by Glen Ford, and his girl friend, played by Hope Lange, pass a street beggar, Bette Davis, off as high society to impress her daughter who is coming back from Europe engaged to a Count.
When the two had finished their meal, Harm turned on the selected movie and snuggled up on the sofa with Mac.
Despite her misgivings over Harm's description, both movies were indeed lots of fun and exactly what she needed. By the end of Mrs. Campbell, Mac had started to doze off a bit. She'd pressed herself further back against Harm and was tightly gripping the arm he had around her waist. Contented to be wrapped around the woman he loved, Harm drifted off to sleep as well. Harm was dreaming of his Sarah, of a time when the two would be free to show their feelings in every way without the fears and restrictions from the years of mistakes and miscommunications.
He could feel the pleasure of being with her slowly surging through his body when he was rudely interrupted by a twinge in his back.
Becoming stronger and stronger, the pain in his back was bringing Harm out of his sleeping state. As the sleepy fog cleared from his brain, he was almost startled to find the warm enrapturing sensations were still flowing through him, especially to one particular part of him. Opening his eyes he saw he was still holding Mac, he also saw, to his horror, the hand that had been carefully placed at her waist the night before was now very obviously grasping her breast.
To make matters worse, he'd been kneading that breast as though he'd been working on a loaf of bread. Instantly his hand froze. Mac's arm was still wrapped around his, trapping his arm against her.
Panic was beginning to replace his previous excitement. If she woke up and caught him in his current position, he was probably one dead squid. Heaven, Mac was in heaven. Wrapped in a blanket of loving warmth, she had never had sweeter dreams. The warmth was beginning to penetrate her very soul. She could feel the tingling slowly creeping throughout her body creating a small fire within her. The fire was growing, threatening to overtake her, when suddenly the heat began to wane.
Mourning its loss, she let out a soft moan. Desire shot through Harm like a 90 mile an hour fastball. He had to get out of this predicament before she woke up, he just had to.
Shifting his weight slightly, he tried to put a little space between their bodies as he pulled his arm away from Mac's strong grip. Even if she woke up, as long as his hand wasn't anywhere conspicuous, he'd be all right.
That of course was assuming he could manage to keep himself under control before she noticed his obvious reactions to being so intimately entwined with her. Immediately feeling the loss of body heat, Mac was jolted from her sound sleep. It took a bit for her to realize she was still on the sofa with Harm, but not quite as ensconced as she had been the night before.
She was overwhelmed by the strong yearning she felt to turn around and swallow Harm whole. Harm was laying sideways, his back to the sofa, his front only inches away from Sarah.
Scooting around to lay flat on her back, she smiled up at Harm. Her hand had casually been lying dangerously close to his lower extremities. The last thing he wanted was for her to notice what she was doing to him by just being near. He very much wanted to lean down and kiss Mac like she'd never been kissed before.
He'd learned from experience though, to be very careful of when and where he kissed her, especially if he wanted to keep his pants on.
Sitting up on the sofa, Mac stretched a bit. Before Harm had gathered his ingredients, Mac was back in the kitchen, standing behind him wrapping her arms around his waist. Something in her voice told him this was a serious thank you. It was one of those subtle things he'd started picking up on, much like her behavior yesterday.
He only wished he'd learned to do this years ago, it might have saved them so much pain. Stepping away and moving towards the fridge, "For last night, the movies, for understanding. You want to take off his pants? You didn't tell me you were bringing him Harm with you. I'll play with the bed. Am I to prove myself or be myself?
You'll wake up the next morning with fifteen toasters, a champagne hangover I could've bought a house for the amount of money I spent to tie myself to this for the rest of my life'. SecNav Mac hanging up the phone: I was hoping you could do something about it. You're good at that, you know I mean, persuading people to do the right thing. I am real serious about keeping my word. You tell me it's a secret, and it stays that way. Mac and I's relationship is But you call Mrs.
Smithfield yourself and you tell her why you're not coming, and then you can call Susan and tell her that you're a chicken!
