    • Judge Barry: (during Jason's arraignment) How do you plead?
      Milton Schoenfeld: Not guilty, Your Honor.
      Judge Barry: Miss Cabot?
      Alex Cabot: Remand, Your Honor.
      Milton Schoenfeld: The Mayberrys are an old, upstanding family in New Jersey. My client is not a flight risk. His mother, Grace Mayberry, will produce him for trial.
      Alex Cabot: Because of his trust, as well as his mother's wealth, he has means and opportunity to flee. The defendant is charged with heinous crimes. The murder victim was seven weeks pregnant.
      Milton Schoenfeld: Objection!
      Judge Barry: (pounds gavel) That was a nice try, counselor. Don't do it again.
      Alex Cabot: My apologies.
      Judge Barry: Bail is set at one million. Post or enjoy my hospitality. (bangs gavel again)

    • Dr. Melinda Warner: External examination found no traces of semen. Further testing showed spermicide found in condoms. (puts organ onto scale in front of Benson and Stabler)
      Elliot Stabler: (watching) This is fun.

    • (Speaking to Cabot, about why they'll find the perpetrator's weapon.)
      Dr. George Huang: He suffers from piquerism, counselor. The knife represents his penis. It is NOT disposable.

  • Notes

    • Years before starring as Baltimore Police Detective Jimmy McNulty in HBO's The Wire, Dominic West made an uncredited, non-speaking appearance as a detective in this episode's final segment. Seen carrying a search warrant, he is the first in a group of police officers, also including Stabler and Benson, to enter the Mayberry mansion.

    • This episode marks the first appearance of Dr. George Huang.
