    • TRIVIA (1)

    • QUOTES (6)

      • (Waxman conducts C-Square's arraignment.)
        C-Square: (looks around the courtroom) Nice place you got here, judge.
        Judge Waxman: (smiles) How do you plead?
        C-Square: Not guilty.
        Judge Waxman: What do the people have to say?
        Claire Kincaid: People request bail of $250,000.
        Judge Waxman: Miss Diamond?
        Adele Diamond: That's fine, your honor.
        Judge Waxman: There's no business like show business. Next.

      • (Briscoe and Logan catch C-Square just as he enters his hotel)
        Det. Briscoe: Clarence Carmichael?
        C-Square: Okay, you got me. I shot the sheriff. But the deputy, I swear, that was some other dude.
        Det. Logan: (slaps the cuffs on C-Square) I just love rock and roll.
        Det. Briscoe: Clarence Carmichael, you're under arrest for the rape of Julia Wood. You have the right to remain silent.
        C-Square: Yeah, you have the right to kiss my ass.
        Manager: Just keep quiet, Clarence. This is harassment. False arrest. You'll hear from our lawyers.
        Det. Briscoe: (feigns) Oh, no. Not the lawyers. I'm scared. You scared, Mike?
        Det. Logan: (also feigns) I'm shakin' in my blue suede shoes.

      • (In court, quoting C Square's lyrics to the jury.)
        Ben Stone: "One more time on the kitchen floor, your tank's on empty but I want more / I get what I want, it's a one way trip / You ain't a lady, you my bitch."

      • Anita van Buren: If one of these women said no, do you think he's the type of guy who would listen?
        Lennie Briscoe: I think he's been standing too close to his speakers for too long.

      • (To the male detectives, after hearing Julia Wood's story.)
        Anita van Buren: "Shut your eyes and want it to be over"? That girl was raped.

      • Lennie Briscoe: If Ann-Margret had asked me to go dancing when I was standing at the altar, I would have turned to the preacher and said, "I don't." Fame makes people do stupid things.

    • NOTES (2)

      • International Episode Titles:
        Czech Republic: Falešný akord (False Chord)

      • The deleted scenes from this episode show an actual explanation of what happened with Cragen and Robinette. Cragen got promoted and Robinette became a defense attorney. It also shows a prior relationship between Van Buren and Robinette from before since she was the one that asked for him.

    • ALLUSIONS (5)

      • Mike Logan: I'm shaking in my blue suede shoes.
        "Blue Suede Shoes" was a hit song for Elvis Presley that was written by Carl Perkins.

      • Clarence Carmichael: Okay, you got me. I shot the sheriff, but the deputy, I swear that was some other dude.
        C Square paraphrases the well-known song "I Shot The Sheriff", which was written by Bob Marley and has also been recorded by Eric Clapton and many others.

      • Mike Logan: You got tired of life on the cover of Rolling Stone?
        Rolling Stone magazine's name is synonymous with rock music. The magazine is said to have gotten its name from the Bob Dylan song "Like A Rolling Stone". The song "Cover of the Rolling Stone" by Dr. Hook describes the frustrations of a band that is very successful but can't seem to get the magazine's attention.

      • Mike Logan: Besides being number one on Tipper Gore's hit list...
        Tipper Gore is the wife of former Vice President Al Gore. She campaigned against music that contained sex, violence or profanity. She believed that such music should contain warning labels and not be sold to minors. Reportedly, her crusade started after she heard the sexually explicit lyrics on Prince's Purple Rain album, which she had bought for her teenage daughter.

      • This episode appears to be ripped from the headlines of the Mike Tyson case. In 1991, Tyson was convicted of raping Desiree Washington, a contestant for Miss Black America, in an Indianapolis hotel room and served three years of a six year sentence. Tyson made headlines again when he bit off part of Evander Holyfield's ear in a fight. In a 2003 interview with FOX's The Pulse, Tyson denounced both Washington and her mother, stating that now he 'really did want to rape her'. However, it's possible that the episode may also have been spurred by shock rocker GG Allin, who reportedly once raped a female fan.
