    • QUOTES (2)

      • Alec Conroy: She said I couldn't tell her anymore what to do. So I reached for her and she pulled away. And she said that the thought of her being touched by me again made her sick. That's when she saw the gun. And she gave me this look like she knew she'd gone too far.
        Abbie Carmichael: Why not just let her walk away?
        Alec Conroy: I couldn't. Karen should have known I can never do that.
        Jack McCoy: Now she does.

      • Alec Conroy: You know this may come as a big surprise to all of you but I loved Karen.
        Abbie Carmichael: Killing someone is a pretty sick way of saying I love you.

    • ALLUSIONS (2)

      • Lennie Briscoe: Women -- can't live with 'em, can't kill 'em.
        Briscoe makes this comment during an interrogation, a play on the adage '[w]omen -- can't live with 'em, can't live without 'em'. On his only recorded session, 1985's I Have A Pony, comedian and actor Steven Wright included the one-liner '[w]omen -- can't live with 'em, can't shoot 'em'. About the same time, comedian Emo Philips included an off-color version of the remark on his recording E=MO Squared. This exact line was also used in the 1994 movie True Lies.

      • This episode appears to be ripped from the headlines of the Anne Marie Fahey case. Fahey had been romantically involved with the wealthy and married Thomas Capano for two years, and had gone missing not long after breaking off their relationship. Bill Clinton himself took interest in the investigation because Fahey had been well-known to many of his own employees. Capano was later convicted of Fahey's murder, and Fahey's murder was immortalized in the Ann Rule novel And Never Let Her Go: Thomas Capano: The Deadly Seducer.
