"I never thought we'd be singing a Prince duet on television, but there you have it, you know," McDonald said.

With so many Broadway veterans part of the cast, the topic of musical episodes always comes up for co-creators Robert and Michelle King. It's something they've resisted—and seems like will continue to resist.

"We come to things like this, and we're on panels, and they say, ‘Well, why don't you do a musical episode?' And musical episodes never interest me because I'm not a fan of musicals, but I also always feel like...I don't know. It feels like a bulls--tty TV thing," Robert King said at TCA. "And yet music is a part of our lives, and TV just doesn't have people just sing the way they do in real life, because every time you sing, you're paying somebody $25,000 or $30,000 for publishing. And if they sing it twice, then the price escalates."

In addition to the "Raspberry Beret" scene, season three of The Good Fight will feature Sarah Steele's character sing a song from A Chorus Line to annoy Michael Sheen's character.

Robert King said the moment between Baranski and McDonald comes out of a "natural place" and Baranski said they were "very careful not to sell it."
