  • The wife of a retired attorney, a public-health doctor, is found murdered and raped in Central Park. Her work involved contacting sexual partners of HIV patients which gives the detectives a long list of suspects. The discovery of a second body in Central Park with the same signature shifts the focus to a serial killer; however, the trail leads to a man who has no knowledge of the crimes but has a distant connection to the doctor and her husband.moreless

    • Secretary: We don't take walk-ins. You need a referral. Fin Tutuola: (he shows her his badge) We got a special pass. Secretary: (as they start to walk into the office) You can't go in there! John Munch: Sure we can.

    • Fin Tutuola: Skip the science test, did it match?

    • John Munch: There's a fine line between the right to privacy and prevention. Olivia Benson: People have a right to know if they've been exposed to HIV. John Munch: Yeah, I just get a little nervous when the government starts drawing up lists. Fin Tutuola: Please don't get him started. He goes off on black helicopters and we'll be here all night.

    • John Munch: Resisting is a parole violation, Roger. Roger Pomerantz: Bite me! Fin Tutuola: We're gonna do a lot worse than that.

    • M.E. Warner: Esterman's blood type is AB, and he's free of any diseases... Olivia Benson: So we're screwed. CSU Tech: You're not, but your suspect is; I'd say on a regular basis.

    • Captain Cragen refers to potential suspect Mario Molinari as 'Typhoid Mario', which is a play on 'Typhoid Mary'. Mary Mallon (September 23, 1869 – November 11, 1938) was known as Typhoid Mary. An Irish immigrant, she was a carrier of typhoid fever although she showed no symptoms of the disease. Working as a household cook between 1901 and 1907, she infected dozens of people, several of whom died. She was quarantined for three years, then released on the condition that she not work with food. She ignored the restriction, again spread sickness and death, and was finally quarantined for life. She denied being a carrier, and finally died of pneumonia. Unlike Typhoid Mary, the character Mario Molinari was fully aware of his condition and was consciously spreading it.
