Law & Order: Criminal Intent

Season 2 Episode 19

Cherry Red

Aired Sunday 9:00 PM Apr 27, 2003 on USA



  • Trivia

    • Prior to acquiring the Ferrari, Roger had acquired six cars. But when Goren found the models Roger made as a child there were only four.

    • Nitpick: Goren, when seeing the Ferrari GTO, says they only made 32 of them. It is widely believed that there were 36 produced: 33 of the "normal" cars, and three "Type 64" cars, with revised bodywork. There were also three with the four-liter 330 engine sometimes called the "330 GTO" – recognizable by the large hump on the hood – but these are slightly different in appearance and performance from what Goren is talking about when referring to the GTO.

    • Cars Amassed by the Suspect:
      1957 Chevrolet Bel Air
      1962 Ferrari GTO
      1964 Porsche 904 Carrera GTS
      1965 Jaguar XKE Roadster
      1966 Corvette Stingray
      1967 Ford Mustang Shelby GT 500
      1968 Chevrolet Camaro

  • Quotes

    • James Deakins: Bonds are a little like potato chips, people don't usually buy just one.

    • Robert Goren: It's a homeopathic remedy for cat allergies. Microscopic cat dander you put on your tongue. I had a girlfriend named Lola, she had cats.
      Alex Eames: You ate furballs for her?

    • (Goren is enjoying his time behind the wheel of the cherry red car.)
      Alex Eames: You have to come out now.

    • (Sitting in a 1962 Ferrari GTO belonging to the criminal.)
      Robert Goren: I wish I could tell you how this feels, I can't do it in mixed company, but I wish I could. (revs the engine and smiles) You have no idea.
      Criminal: You son of a bitch.
      Robert Goren: (leans out of the car and smiles) You have no idea.

    • Stan Coffman: (referring to Goren) You know, you're awfully snoopy.
      Alex Eames: A lot of people point that out.

    • Robert Goren: The reason why I keep harping on the bearer bond-- do you have a medical condition?
      (Roger Coffman looks confused by the sudden change of subject.)

    • Alex Eames: Maybe she thought she'd inherit some cash to go with the cats.

  • Notes
