(Cabot texts on her phone during the arraignment.)
Judge: How does the defendant plead?
Sophie Devere: Not guilty, your honor.
Judge: I'll hear the People on bail.
(Alex keeps texting.)
Judge: Miss Cabot, are we keeping you from some important business?
Alex Cabot: Uh, I'm sorry, your honor. The People request remand.
Sophie Devere: What?
Alex Cabot: The defendant has established a pattern of theft and obfuscation. We consider her an extreme flight risk.
Sophie Devere: Miss Walker has no criminal record. To keep her locked up over these two charges is ridiculous.
(Alex resumes texting.)
Judge: That sounds a little extreme, even for you, Miss Cabot. And if you don't put that phone down, I'm gonna hold you in contempt!

After arresting a mother pushing a baby doll in a stroller through the park Detective John Munch tells the mother that unless the baby is Pinocchio he is not coming to life.
