  • The Truth Comes Out

    6.0
    In one brief exchange with Southerlyn uber liberal Jack McCoy shows his true colors that he is an antisemite. He was about to rant on how many jurors are Jewish until Serena stops him.
  • Twists and turns

    7.0
    Like many Law and order episodes you never know the outcome or the motive at first. In court, we thought McCoy was doomed by the sympathy vote but the writers had another twist in store.



    With this show you have to listen closely - Lenny and Branch come up with the funniest quips. I could be here all day adding quotes to the guide.



    I\'ve been watching this show since Series Three and it hasn\'t felt stale or old yet. Amazing. This show was topical given what has happened in the Middle East. But at the end of the day McCoy showed that justice must prevailmoreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Nitpick: When Randy Dworkin makes his impassioned plea in chambers about the benefits of using violence for good purposes, after mentioning slavery and women in Afghanistan freed from the burkha, he says the following, "And then there is my Aunt Sophie who spent six years in that garden spot known as Auschwitz, until the American army said 'That's okay Soph you can go home now!'" Auschwitz was located in Poland and was liberated by the Soviet Red Army, not the Americans.

  • QUOTES (4)

    • (After the verdict)
      Randy Dworkin: Hell of a job, you're top of a legal food chain, Jack. No question about it.

    • Supreme Court Bailiff: The people of the State of New York against Steven Strelzik.
      Defense Attorney Randy Dworkin: I object Your Honor.
      Hon. Bryce Miller: We haven't even started yet.
      Randy Dworkin: The people of New York? I'd say it's a bit prejudicial. Certainly it doesn't mean all the people of this great state are against my client from the get-go. I know I'm not against him and you, Your Honor, you're certainly open-minded on the matter and we can't forget the jury because if they're predisposed against my client...
      Hon. Bryce Miller: Not cute, counselor. Try it again and we're talking contempt.

    • Steven Strelzik: We were just sitting down to dinner.
      Lennie Briscoe: It can't wait. You might want to do this in private.
      Steven Strelzik: (to his daughter) Sweetie, go back to Mommy.
      Lennie Briscoe: Cute kid, too bad you'll miss her wedding.
      Ed Green: Steven Strelzik, you are under arrest.

    • Lennie Briscoe: These are reading glasses.
      M.E.: There you go, the librarian did it.
      Lennie Briscoe: Gordon Meeks was 25, he wouldn't need reading glasses.
