    • ALLUSIONS (2)

      • Jack McCoy: He's the man in the gray flannel suit.
        This is an allusion to the well-known Sloan Wilson novel and film, The Man in the Gray Flannel Suit which plot bears a strong resemblance to this episode.

      • This episode appears to be ripped from the headlines of the Brian Stewart case. In February 1992, Stewart injected his illegitimate eleven-month-old son with blood tainted with HIV, intending to kill him to avoid paying child support. The child was diagnosed with AIDS in May 1996, and Stewart was charged, convicted and sentenced to life imprisonment.
