The show ended up with a child psychiatrist named Roy Lubit saying:
I'd like to see a significantly restructured system where, instead of two warring parties, the child and their interests were more front and centered. ... Well, one possibility is to have a jury, let's say of three child professionals -- social workers, psychologists, psychiatrists -- who decide what the visitation and custody should be when there is a custody battle.The idea is kooky. It is like saying that a murder trial should use a jury of chiropractors.
