  • Bad Rich Girl or Son of Sam Clone?

    8.0
    Benson and Stabler investigate the murder of some salesman, who was wearing no pants. They track down this girl, Stephanie Mulroney, who happens to be the daughter of some political family with connections. Turns out she knew the victim since college and lied about what happened that night. And, as a result she gets locked up on charges for murder. Then, a similar shooting occurs when the victims date tells the cops a man with Buddy Holly glasses was the shooter. Benson and Stabler get in contact with Det. Briscoe and Det. Greene from the 27th that there was a similar case a few years back. Then, both squads founded, and apprehend their shooter, Arthur Pruitt. Pruitt confessed , but Munch suspects that one of the victims was beaten before he died coming to the conclusion that Mulroney killed him. Conspiracy or truth?



    This episode brings the mother ship, and it's spinoff together for this two part episode. Some court scenes included. I like it when Benson, Stabler, Munch, Briscoe, Greene, and Jeffries grill the punk.moreless

  • Law and Order Special Victims Unit!

    7.5
    When a victim is found dead in his car the Detectives of the Special Victims Unit set out to solve the crime. They start by questioning the victim's date, and other women who were involved in similar crimes. They set their sights on a wealthy socialite, and Capt. Cragen feels that this case could end his career. This was a decent episode. I'm disappointed that it was a two parter, and that the second part was not aired as an episode of SVU. And the Season during which the second half airs on Law and Order, is not on DVD or available for download on iTunes. Hopefully I will be able to see the second half before long.moreless
  • Good to see some original Law & Order characters.

    7.5
    This episode was really nothing special. The lack of Elliot and Olivia I think was the main problem. The only good thing was seeing people like Lennie Briscoe and Jack McCoy on SVU and watching how they mixed with the other characters, otherwise this was an almost boring episode. It starts with a man murdered in his car, a single bullet to the head, and the main suspect, a member of a prominent family, has her family and lawyers close ranks around her. Eventually the case takes a turn to another suspect with a nasty habit of killing men in their cars with a single bullet to the head. From there on out it becomes very predictable and boring. The only twist was at the end when Munch proves the man from the beginning of the episode could very well have been killed by the original suspect, but Cragen just shrugs it off and walks away. This was not that great, and the writers can do a lot better.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

  • QUOTES (10)

    • (Munch and Stabler review the first crime scene.)
      Stabler: CSU recovered one .44 slug from the gearbox.
      Munch: A .44-- the shooter was either wacko or insecure.

    • Helen Katish: (looking at a line-up) Number three.
      Don Cragen: Are you sure?
      Helen Katish: Yeah. It was dark, but it wasn't that dark. I'd remember him 'til the day I die. That face, those glasses …
      Elliot Stabler: It's not an audition, Ms. Katish, just, are you sure?
      Helen Katish: All right. How's this? And this winner is, number three!

    • (To the suspect in the interrogation room.)
      John Munch
      : (yelling) You're enjoying this, these little guys trying to sweet-talk you into giving us a little crumb of information.
      Arthur Pruitt: Oh yeah, yeah, it's the high point of my life.
      John Munch: Better than shooting those people in cold blood, you little reptilian geek?!
      Arthur Pruitt: Oh it's bad cop now, right?
      John Munch: (screaming) You bet your ass!
      Monique Jeffries: John, easy.
      John Munch: (still in a loud voice) You did it, you piece of crap. I know it, you know it.
      Monique Jeffries: Seriously, come on.
      John Munch: No, I'm going to kill this guy myself.
      Arthur Pruitt: (speaking to Jeffries about Munch) Call him off, call him off.
      John Munch: I'm gonna Mike Tyson you, you bastard!
      Arthur Pruitt: Come on. Is this legal?
      Monique Jeffires: Probably not.
      John Munch: (whispering in Arthur Pruitt's ear) I'm gonna kill you. I'm gonna kill you. I'm gonna kill you.

    • (At the second crime scene.)
      John Munch: Vanity, thy name is woman.
      Monique Jeffries: It's frailty, not vanity, you misogynist.

    • (At ballistics.)
      Monique Jeffries: He was shot with a Black Talon?!
      John Munch: Cop killers. They haven't been made since 1994.
      Monique Jeffries: Yeah, because they killed too many cops.
      John Munch: Nah, the real reason was, it was instantly recognizable. Bullet makers want anonymity. If you can't prove where the bullet was made, you can't sue the manufacturer. Where would we be without lawyers?

    • (McCoy and Cragen are leaving the courthouse, with McCoy worried about their jobs.)
      Jack McCoy: I hope to God we're right on this.
      Don Cragen: I hear Logan's learning to love Staten Island.

    • John Munch: One minute you're getting your doorknob polished, the next you're sweet talking St. Peter.

    • John Munch: Will you ever have dinner with me?
      Dr. Elizabeth Rodgers: Not while I can still feed myself.

    • Elliot Stabler: Those are not wagon trains circled around Stephanie. Those were tanks.

    • Olivia Benson: The crime scene is a big grope spot.
      Elliot Stabler: Romantic. Teenagers, honeymooners, (glances at Benson) co-workers.

  • NOTES (2)

  • ALLUSIONS (3)

    • Don Cragen: I hear Logan's learning to love Staten Island.

      Cragen is referencing what happened to Mike Logan in Law & Order's "Pride."

    • Captain Craigen asks Munch if his new idea is "another magic bullet theory". A 'magic bullet theory' is a term used by critics to describe the Warren Commission's explanation as to how three shots made by Lee Harvey Oswald resulted in the assassination of John F. Kennedy.

    • John Munch: Vanity, thy name is woman.
      Munch is misquoting a line from Shakespeare's Hamlet (I, ii, 146) in which Hamlet is fuming about how his mother so quickly married his uncle only a month after his father's death. The original line is, "Frailty, thy name is woman!"
