  • Trivia

    • Elliot's cover story about working at his sister's husbands body shop is taken from season three's "Justice".

    • Nitpick: In the beginning of the episode, there is a sign that says Elmira Correctional Facility, but the facility used is not the actual prison at Elmira.

    • Nitpick: They never explain how Schenkel managed to commit the rape at the Port Authority without leaving any DNA behind. For that matter, they never present any evidence that he actually did commit the rape.

    • Nitpick: Stabler could get in a lot of trouble for almost killing Ray. He could have just shot the guy in the leg or something but he almost killed him by strangling him.

  • Quotes

    • Olivia Benson: Ray Schenkel!
      Ray Schenkel (opening the door): Welcome Wagon?
      Fin Tutuola (showing his badge): Paddy wagon.

    • Fin Tutuola: (spying as Ray approaches the decoy) The fox is in the henhouse.

    • William Dorsey: (to Elliot) He may not have left his DNA, but Ray raped that girl, and he'll rape again till you put him back in jail ... or he's in his grave.

    • Ray Schenkel: What kind of fool would rape a woman the day he gets out of prison?
      Olivia Benson: You, Ray, 'cause there's no cure for sex offenders.

    • (Retired Officer Dorsey is waiting outside the gate as Schenkel is released from prison.)
      William Dorsey: So they let you out?
      Ray Schenkel: Twenty-one years, five months, and three days, but who's counting?
