  • Quotes (13)

    • Elliot Stabler: You know what's funny? We're cops from the city and you're treating us like we're the hicks from upstate.

    • (The suspect asks Stabler what the victim was whining about.) Elliot Stabler: Dead men don't whine.

    • (The victim has been shot in both the head and the groin.) Donald Cragen: Could it have been a hit? John Munch: If it was a hit, they would have shot him in only one head.

    • Roger Silver: Pretty and smart. You married, Detective?
      Elliot Stabler: Why don't you play The Dating Game with someone who shares your clinical diagnosis?

    • John Munch: Hello and welcome to Parole Phone. If you're paying with sex, press 1. If you want to make a donation to a phony charity, press 2. Elliot Stabler: Yeah, the charities are good, it's the donations that are phony.

    Trivia (3)

    • This marks the first on-screen shooting of a suspect by Olivia Benson.

    • Goof: In the opening scene, Munch reaches into the victim's car and pulls a gun holster out of the car; however, he is not wearing latex gloves. Detectives would never touch any evidence from a crime scene without wearing gloves.

    • Goof: When Stabler hands Benson her breakfast, she takes a bite out of it and is chewing, but when they show it again, there is no part missing.

    Allusions (1)

    • Witness: (at a lineup) She could be #2… but she also looks like #3… and 4. Munch: Too bad you weren't at the grassy knoll. The grassy knoll refers to a site near the 1963 John F. Kennedy assassination, it is a small hill in Dealey Plaza, Dallas, Texas. Many eyewitnesses were on the knoll overlooking the presidential cavalcade when the shots were fired, some of whom claimed the sounds came from the knoll, not the depository, fueling conspiracy theorists for decades to come.
