    • TRIVIA (1)

    • QUOTES (8)

      • Abbie Carmichael: Did they teach you how to perform exorcisms, Jack?
        Jack McCoy: They taught us how to respect the devil.
        Abbie Carmichael: The only devil here is the one who killed that girl.

      • Jack McCoy: The Crusades. Islamic Jihad. Holy wars. An oxymoron if there ever was one.

      • Adam Schiff: All right, split the difference. Prove that a saint can commit murder.

      • Jack McCoy: (During closing arguments.) She may hear God, but she may not play God.

      • Hospital Security Guard: It's busy. The squeaky wheel gets the grease.
        Rey Curtis: Her fault for dying so quietly.

      • Jack McCoy: Voices told her to wage war against Satan.
        Adam Schiff: Son of Sam again.
        Jack McCoy: No. Berkowitz was a psychopathic loser who said he received directions to kill from a labrador retriever. Rosa's voice tells her to save the world.
        Adam Schiff: A voice is a voice. Nobody's that naive.

      • Woman: I'm sorry, three kids with the flu home all week.
        Rey Curtis: I know how it is.
        Woman: No you don't. You get to go to work.

      • Adam Schiff: People see the devil as an allegory.
        Jack McCoy: I'm not so sure I do.
        Abbie Carmichael: (incredulously) Horns and a pitchfork, Jack?

    • NOTES (0)

    • ALLUSIONS (3)

      • This episode appears to be ripped from the headlines of the Charity Miranda case. Charity's mother, Vivian, and a classmate, Serena Martin, engaged her in a two-hour exorcism because her mother believed that Charity had a demon inside of her. Charity died during the exorcism process and, to cover her death, her mother placed her in a plastic bag, leaving her at the bottom of the stairs.

      • McCoy: Berkowitz was a psychopathic loser who said he received directions to kill from a labrador retriever.
        Serial killer David F. Berkowitz (Son of Sam), killed six people and wounded several others in New York City in the 1970's. He claimed his neighbor "Sam" was a Satanic High Priest who sent his dog to Berkowitz telling him who to kill. These encounters with the dog were portrayed in the 1999 film Summer of Sam.

      • Woman in hospital: The news was just ending -- Tom Brokaw.
        At the time this episode was aired, Tom Brokaw was the anchorman and managing editor of NBC Nightly News. NBC is the American television network that broadcasted Law & Order.
