Episode Summary

EDIT
After corporate attorney Charles Dillon is discovered dead in a hotel room, Green and Cassady investigate and learn that the company he was working for is in the process of being indicted. Their investigation leads them to a high-priced callgirl, Julia Veloso, who turns out to have been romantically involved with the company's C.E.O., Samantha Weaver. McCoy and Rubirosa find themselves at odds as Rubirosa wonders if McCoy's prosecution of Weaver has more to do with her gender than her guilt.moreless

  • Good Characters Help Familiar Story.

    9.0
    The CEO character is truly what made this episode memorable. Her headstrong attitude and callous demeanor allowed the audience to dislike her while still never really being sure of her guilt. I still have no idea who was the true culprit- the defendent or her girlfriend? Nor do McCoy and Rubirosa. As great as it is having knowledge outside the realm of the characters' reality, being in the dark with them (in their dillemma) is also an affective way of engaging the viewer. Not all cases are cut and dry and sometimes when Jack is so sure of himself it just isn't realistic. Having the DA's office make morally ambiguous decisions in the pursuit of justice emphasizes the unfortunate truth- not even the good guys can be right 100% of the time.moreless
  • Not as bad episode but predictable

    I don't see the new ADA lasting too long on this show. They really don't seem to know what to do with her character. Is she nice and tough or is she a push over? McCoy keeps pushing her out of his way. Branch is interesting and I wish he got more screen time.

    • (Julia Veloso is arrested while trying on designer boots)
      Nina Cassady: Girl to girl, where you're going, you're going to need some much more sensible shoes.

    • Samantha Weaver: (to Ed Green) Believe it or not, detective, I had very little to do with the eavesdropping.
      Nina Cassady: Except to order it.

    • Anita van Buren: All of this high-level corporate intrigue and our best suspect is a prostitute?

    • Nina Cassady: Where the hell were you Tuesday night?

      Nina Cassady: Little Miss Beauty Queen might just kick your ass, so how about you have a seat and answer the question.

    • (Van Buren and Cassady call the number Brent Sullivan got from the woman in the bar.)
      Voice on Answering Machine: What's up, player? The woman who gave you this phone number thought you were a total dork. If you approach her again, she'll call the police and report you as a stalker. Have a nice day. And buy some mouthwash, loser.
      Anita Van Buren: (amused and surprised) That's nice.

  • NOTES (2)

  • ALLUSIONS (3)

    • Arthur Branch: Interesting fodder for Page Six, but what about for our trial?

      Page Six is the gossip column in the New York Post. They enjoy reporting on rumors and scandals among celebrities and prominent New Yorkers.

    • Connie Rubirosa: Who knows? Maybe they were in love. (Branch and McCoy look at her) It's possible.
      Arthur Branch: Yeah, I saw Pretty Woman too, Connie.
      In the movie Pretty Woman, Julia Roberts plays a prostitute who meets a wealthy businessman (Richard Gere). He hires her to be his escort for some social functions and tries to disguise her as a cultured, distinguished woman. In the process, he falls in love with her.

    • Jack McCoy: (of Samantha Weaver) She doth protest a little too much.

      This is a variation of the oft-quoted line from act 3, scene 2 of William Shakespeare's Hamlet, spoken by Queen Gertrude as she watches a play written by her son where the lady in question is actually representing herself. The line doesn't actually mean that the female is speaking against, merely that she's speaking in excess. The actual line is, "The lady doth protest too much, methinks."
