    • QUOTES (6)

      • Claire Kincaid: Smothering your own baby and then cremating her. Makes me wish I went to art school.
        Jack McCoy: Never underestimate the depravity of American society.

      • Lennie Briscoe: Kidnap a kid from a church? How many Hail Marys does that get you?
        Rey Curtis: Somehow, I don't think this guy was counting.

      • Rey Curtis: I'm telling you, my daughters aren't going to be old enough to marry until they graduate college.
        Lennie Briscoe: Well, I'm not old enough to marry and I'm a grandfather.

      • Claire Kincaid: Admit it, Jack, you were a little tough on that priest.
        Jack McCoy: When you're raised by the Jesuits, you end up obedient or impertinent.
        (Waiter sets a drink down in front of McCoy)
        Jack McCoy: I didn't order this.
        Waiter: It's on the gentleman at the bar.

        Jack McCoy: Take it back.
        Claire Kincaid: Can't forgive anyone, eh?
        Jack McCoy: No, I can't. Besides, that was bourbon. I'm drinking scotch.

      • (To Fineman.)
        Judge Rebecca Stein: Either you're a brilliant strategist, or you're the biggest jackass to ever set foot in my court.

        Ross Fineman: He's badgering, Your Honor!
        Jack McCoy: Sit down and shut up, Mr. Fineman!
        Judge Stein: Overruled. And you will address the court from now on, Mr. McCoy.

    • NOTES (1)

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • This episode appears to be ripped from the headlines of the Susan Smith case. Father Carner also mentions Susan Smith during his testimony.
