  • I haven't seen this episode yet, I admit. I'm very interested in seeing it, not only because I love SVU, but also I have Turner's Syndrome. I must take issue with something that appears grossly inaccurate.

  • Trivia & Quotes
  • Quotes (5)

    • Kathy Stabler: Why haven't you signed the divorce papers? It's been months, Elliot. You won't talk to me. You won't talk to my lawyer. The kids are asking if we're getting back together. I've run out of things to say. Elliot Stabler: What do you want? Kathy Stabler: An answer. Elliot Stabler: I don't know. Kathy Stabler: Well, I guess that's an answer.

    • Donald Cragen: What kind of guy wants to have sex with a girl who looks twelve apart from a pedophile? George Huang: It might look like she planned it, but I think she's being manipulated by someone who wants to mold her into his ideal sex object. Elliot Stabler: Yeah. A child he can have sex with legally.

    • Maia Graves: (speaking of Janey) She's very strong-willed. Elliot Stabler: What does that mean? You're the parent. You're in charge.

    • (Dani Beck has just told Stabler she is his new partner.) Elliot Stabler: Welcome to the world of gray.

    • Kathleen Stabler: I hate you!
      Fin Tutuola: Everything okay?
      Elliot Stabler: Man, you're lucky you don't have daughters.

    Trivia (1)

    • Nitpick: Kathleen was just 17 when she was arrested for DUI in episode "Blood." Now, more than a year later, she is still said to be 17.

    Allusions (3)

    • Cragen: So who's Janey's Svengali? Svengali is a character from the novel, Trilby by George du Maurier. The protagonist, a hypnotist, molds a young women into his ideal. The term has entered the mainstream and is used, especially with male-female relationships, to show an unnatural dependence on the influencing person. Nadia Comaneci's Svengali was considered to be Béla Károlyi, for example.

    • Fin Tutuola: (to Greg Hartley) All right Svengoolie, show me what you got.
      A reference to late night TV host Svengoolie, who shows old horror movies late at night. Fin would have called him this because of the horrific state in which they think he left Janey.

    • While the TARU tech was going through Janey's computer, they came across her MySite website. MySite represents MySpace, which hosts personal websites where users can post blogs, pictures, et al.

      My daughter has TS and this episode was discussed on a parents discussion forum page. I want to view the episode, but I cannot figure out how... anyways, the parents said it was nice for TS to be used but there were some inaccuracies......
