    • (Talking to Dr. Hellems about the attorney who is suing him.) Mike Logan: Well, he claims the surgery on Roberto Martinez was unnecessary. Dr. Hellems: I didn't know they taught supraventricular tachycardia in law school.

    • Ben Stone: Man’s creativity expands proportionately to his greed. Paul Robinette: Stone’s Law? Ben Stone: No one ever went Chapter 11 scamming his neighbor out of a buck. Used pacemakers. God forgive us. Paul Robinette: And an attorney’s creativity expands geometrically to the heinousness of his client’s crime. Adler’s moving to quash the indictment. Says we failed to present evidence of causation. Ben Stone: I like my law better than yours.

    • Lorraine Schwab: When I was a kid, I used to look up at buildings like this, and dream about meeting a prince, and living in a penthouse. My prince showed up, Mr. Robinette. His name was BioNorm. I’m sorry, but there is no way that I’m going to turn back into being a frog.

    • Paul Robinette:Your father died and you don’t care why? Lorraine Schwab: My dad was no hero, okay? The best thing he ever did was to die with one of those gizmos attached to his ticker. I don’t know about you, but I like Park Avenue, a hell of a lot more than Canarsie. One day a man from BioNorm shows up, offers me a quarter of a million dollars. I settle faster than you can say ‘gold card.’

    • Mike Logan: A corporation that’s not getting sued? There goes my faith in America.

    Trivia (1)

    • Nitpick: Logan states that his father got a new heart and lived six more years after that. This contradicts his comments in the first season episode "Prescription for Death" where Logan said that his father was 'still walking today because he had a heart transplant' in a hospital 'seven years ago'.

    Allusions (1)

    • When Dr. Hellems says that he did what he thought was best for the Martinez family, Detective Logan replies sarcastically that he's 'just a regular Dr. Schweitzer'. Dr. Albert Schweitzer was a doctor who was recognized for his humanitarian efforts and received the 1952 Nobel Peace Prize for these efforts.
