(Reviewing the Van Acker's financials.)
Martell: Well, it wasn't all caviar and champagne. They put half a mil a year into their charity, the Equine Rights Foundation.
Alex Eames: Let me guess; they find homes for retired polo ponies.
(Shop assistant Janice tries to keep Goren from looking through the receipts.)
Mr. Sloan: Are you getting any closer to catching the murderer?
Robert Goren: (speaking close to Janice's ear) Getting closer by the minute.
(To Dale Van Acker about the two men she's escorting.)
Lois Romney: They're creepy Like a coupla ex-cons in brand new suits. One of them's still got a tag from the designer warehouse still stuck on his sleeve. Um, I don't have a good feeling about this.
Dale Van Acker: I didn't do anything!
Robert Goren: Sure you did. You're under arrest for littering.
(Goren finds something while examining the body)
Robert Goren: Fish scale.
Alex Eames (sarcastically) Great, she was attacked by a shark.
Robert Goren: Sharks don't have scales. (Eames sighs)
(While doing surveillance on residents of the tunnels.)
Robert Goren: You ever think what's it's like living down there?
Alex Eames: With what one bedrooms are going for, I've considered it.
This episode appears to be ripped from the headlines of the Patricia Margello case. In 1998, Pati was romantically involved with Dean MacGuigan, a descendant of industrialist E.I. du Pont. MacGuigan's step-father, Christopher Moseley, was eventually convicted of ordering her murder.
