    • TRIVIA (0)

    • QUOTES (7)

      • Andre Blair (about his violent music): That's music – make-believe, fantasy, not real life.
        Jack McCoy: Unfortunately, sometimes they merge.

      • Jack McCoy (about Andre Blair): Some people don't change.
        Connie Rubirosa: Or maybe he's just had bad luck with authorities in the past.
        Jack McCoy: Which he's glamorized the hell out of on countless albums.

      • Jack McCoy: Where were you the night she was killed?
        Andre Blair: Where were you?
        Jack McCoy: I'm not a suspect!

      • Nina Cassady (arresting Krantz): Our bracelets are cheaper than what you're used to, Ike, but they'll have to do.

      • Roxy: I ain't no snitch.
        Ed Green (laughing): Don't you love when people say that?
        Nina Cassady: Oh I do, energizes me. Makes me want to arrest everyone I see and hold them for 24 hours.

      • Nina Cassady (about Sweet Clarisse): Too violent for me. Sex, guns, and a nasty mouth.

      • Ed Green (holding up Sweet Clarisse's necklace): Wow, that's a whole lotta bling to leave behind. What do you think that goes for?
        Nina Cassady: Our combined salaries.

    • NOTES (2)

    • ALLUSIONS (4)

      • Ed Green: She did an appearance at the Garden with Jay-Z at 11:00.

        Jay-Z (born Shawn Corey Carter) is the Grammy-winning hip-hop artist whose hit songs include "Hard Knock Life."

      • Nina Cassady: (to Andre Blair) You hung a guy out a hotel room window so he'd sign over his publishing.
        Music producer Marion 'Suge' Knight is rumored to have dangled Vanilla Ice out of a window to get him to sign over royalties to Knight.

      • Ed Green: (reading Steven Smith's text message) "You make a blind man see, you make a dead man . . ."
        Steven Smith likely quoted a line from the classic Rolling Stones song "Start Me Up," in which Mick Jagger claims that the woman in the song can sexually arouse a dead man.

      • This episode appears to be ripped from the headlines of the Jacob the Jeweler case. Iced Out Ike is similar to real-life jewelry designer Jacob Arabo (AKA Jacob the Jeweler), who is currently under indictment for money laundering. They are both referred to as 'The King of Bling'.
