  • Quotes (26)

    • Mac: The riot squad use 37 millimeter soft rounds? Flack: Yeah, beanbags for crowd control. This place went from a sing-along to a slugfest in about 60 seconds. Come on, you're not saying that one of our guys is gonna take the heat for this? Mac: Not saying anything... yet.

    • Flack: You guys know these rounds are designed not to kill. Stella: It's not our job to tell you what you want to hear, Flack. Mac: Once we sort through the evidence, our findings may rule out misconduct or excessive force. Flack: Or they may not. I get it. It's just that, you know, these guys don't have an easy job out there. Mac: Neither do we.

    • Stella: You got something? Adam: Actually, yeah, I do. It's called "shriiimping." Stella: Shrimping? Adam: Only they spell it with three "I's." It's a lot like tagging. Stella: Graffiti? Adam: But for people. Stella: You actually got an ID on the artist who painted her? Adam: Investigation is its own art form.

    • Kenneth Bamford: I paint a lot of girls. Maybe you're interested. Stella: I'm only interested in finding out what happened to this one. We didn't pick up significant radioactive trace on you or your studio. Did you make contact with her in any other way? Kenneth Bamford: I like the way you think, but no. She wasn't my type.

    • Kenneth Bamford: (To Stella) You're pretty smart for a hottie.

    Allusions (5)

    • Stella: Iodine. In tablet form, these can be used to protect your thyroid from absorbing certain types of radiation. Half of Eastern Europe took them after Chernobyl. This is a reference to the nuclear radiation escape that occurred in 1986 at Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant in northern Ukraine, probably the worse in History, that severely affected the city's 15,000 inhabitants and their following generations up to present time.

    • The method of killing Molly Paulson, ingesting radioactive material seems to be ripped from the headlines of the Alexander Litvinenko case. Litvinenko was poisoned in London, England by ingesting Polonium 210 in 2006.

    • The Tibetan Book of the Dead (or The Great Book of Natural Liberation Through Understanding in the Between) by the Dalai Lama is a religious text from Tibet, written as a guide for persons attending someone who is dying or recently dead, to bring comfort and "spiritual liberation".

    • The individual building a nuclear reactor in his shed, is based on the true events of David Hahn AKA "The Radioactive Boyscout", who attempted to construct his own reactor in his parent's shed in 1994 at age 17.

    • Flack: (wearing radiation suit and knocking on suspect's door) Larry Wagner! NYPD! Listen up Larry, I'm a little pissed off over having to wear this outfit. If you don't open this door, I'm gonna huff and puff and nuke your little house down! Flack is referring to the popular children's fairy tale The wolf and the seven kids where the big bad wolf tells the three little pigs: "I'll huff and puff and blow your house in" when they won't let him in to their houses.
