    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (5)

      • Kincaid reveals that she's never been married or had any children.

      • This is the first time Kincaid is censured from practicing law.

      • This is one of the rare occasions where Logan is seen in street clothes -- he wore slacks, a dress shirt and a sweater over the shirt due to an undercover operation the detectives were on in Central Park.

      • Briscoe reveals that when he was younger he used to park cars at the Atwater, which had a pilgrim on their parking sticker.

      • Goof: At one point, the Grievance Committee indicates that the interviewee is "Jill" Kincaid. This is in error -- the character's name is actually "Claire" Kincaid, who is portrayed by Jill Hennessy.

    • QUOTES (2)

      • Lennie Briscoe (to the video technician): Could we hear that again in English? I cut my teeth on 45s and Fats Domino.

      • Arthur Gold: No room in that cold prosecutor's heart for a little compassion, huh?
        Ben Stone: Arthur, I have compassion for the criminal justice system, and right now it deserves better than Joel Thayer.

    • NOTES (2)

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • This episode apears to be ripped from the headlines of the Sol Wachtler case. Wachtler was a New York Chief Judge when the news of his affair with associate Joy Silverman hit the news. Wachtler was arrested for threatening not only Silverman's life but also that of her daughter. Wachtler eventually pled guilty to harassment and was sentenced to jail time. During his career on the bench, Wachtler made numerous landmark decisions, including presiding on a case where he ruled that a married man could indeed be charged with rape if his wife wasn't willing.
