Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • This episode establishes that Capt. Cragen was transferred to the Anti-Corruption Task Force after leaving the 27.

    • Goof: Cragen makes a comment about his fourteen-year-old daughter, even though it's been previously established that he and his wife Marge have no children.

  • QUOTES (7)

    • Joe Krolinsky: Please, I have a family --
      Jack McCoy: I feel sorry for them.

    • Anita van Buren: There's people like him in every neighborhood. Could be the Little League coach, your kid's favorite teacher . . . it's too bad they don't glow in the dark.

    • Father Navarro: When Father Krolinsky was pronounced cured, he was sent to another parish.
      Jack McCoy: How many times was he pronounced cured?

    • Adam Schiff: Sounds like Krolinsky's been behaving himself all these years.
      Jack McCoy: It just means he hasn't been caught. I've prosecuted pedophiles, Adam. They defy rehabilitation.

    • Mike Logan: He was a big deal, our parents loved him. What are kids gonna do against a parish priest?

    • Joe Krolinsky: I have a sickness. I need help.
      Jack McCoy: You're an adult. Your victims are children. There's nothing you could say that would make me feel sorry for you.

    • Mike Logan: We called you 'Father'! How could you do that to us? You even did it to your own kid! How could you do that?

  • NOTES (2)

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • This episode appears to be ripped from the headlines of the James Porter case in Boston. Porter was accused of molesting over 200 boys and girls while he was a priest. The archdiocese responded by denying the victims' claims of abuse or transferring Porter to other parishes. Porter eventually left the priesthood and got married. He was later convicted of molesting a teenage girl who baby-sat his children.
