High school nickname of John Cage (Peter MacNicol), the eccentric senior partner in Cage/Fish & Associates on the legal dramedy ALLY McBEAL/FOX/1997-2002.
John’s fellow students “poked and prodded” him because he bore a resemblance to the Pillsbury Dough Boy. The lawyers in his firm also called John “The Biscuit” or “The Little Biscuit.”
When John gets upset or nervous his voice trails up, his lip twitches and he makes funny noises through his nose. John is also fastidious when it comes to his personal hygiene.
