Trivia

FILTER BY TYPE

  • Trivia

    • Goof: When the social worker shoots herself there is only a small amount of bleeding shown coming through her shirt. As soon as Fin puts his hand on her chest there is tons of blood. There was obviously a bag of fake blood under the shirt.

    • Nitpick: During cross-examination of the social worker during the trial, we learn the reason she didn't return distraught calls from the foster parent of the child that died. She states that she was busy aiding two other children, who witnessed their father beating and shooting the children's mother, before turning the gun on himself. This is a very dramatic moment, as it is presented as though the prosecution was not aware of this. This makes absolutely no sense. For starters, it's certainly one of the first questions that would've been asked, or offered by the defense prior to trial, particularly in light of potentially reaching a plea bargain in the case. Secondly, the defense most certainly would have asked the question on direct questioning knowing that the jury would be looking for the answer, and that the answer was highly favorable to her case. While it may have made a more dramatic moment as written, it's simply illogical to think it would have happened this way.

      Fin: (takes the phone): Who the hell are you calling a bitch? This is the police. Call here again we're gonna bust your door in.

    • Fin: You raked her face with a cheese grater.
      Lori Ann: She raked herself, she's psychotic.
      Fin: Yeah, and Jamie smothered himself.

    • (Munch busts social worker Mariel Plummer for illegally altering paperwork.)
      John Munch: We were just admiring how you were writing up six months' worth of records in one day.

    • Fin Tutuola: (to Lori Ann) That was smooth. Shutting a murder witness up in a loony bin.
