    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (1)

      • Lennie Briscoe finds some closure in this episode when he learns that the man who killed his daughter Cathy (in "Damaged") has died from a heroin overdose.

    • QUOTES (9)

      • Jack McCoy: Of course Mr. Willis never said kill Christina Osborne. Adolf Hitler never said kill this Jew, or that Jew. But there's no doubting his intent.

      • Jack McCoy: We already restrict speech directed at minors. Cigarette advertising, pornography ... why not hate speeches?

      • Peter Stymons: I don't know. My Aryan brothers --
        Mr. Stymons: Shut up with that crap! My old man took a bullet fighting the Nazis and I'll be damned if my son is gonna stand up for that garbage!

      • Jack McCoy: This wasn't a bias crime. The victim was one of their own.
        Adam Schiff: What's the matter? They run out of people to hate?

      • Ray Curtis (To Derek Harland.) Does it make you feel like a big man, having your mommy lie for you like that?

      • Jack McCoy: When we talk about free speech, we mean the exchange of ideas.

      • Willis: I have a constitutional right to say that.
        Jack McCoy: And I have a constitutional right to make you pay the consequences.

      • Lennie Briscoe: Get up, Adolf.
        Willis: The name's Willis.
        Anita Van Buren: Whatever.

      • Adam Schiff: I don't see the conviction surviving an appeal.
        Jack McCoy: If I thought we could stop hate with one ruling, I'd be a fool.
        Adam Schiff: Yeah ... but you'd be my kind of fool.

    • NOTES (0)

    • ALLUSIONS (5)

      • One of the skinheads addresses Rey Curtis as "Pancho," a reference to Franciso "Pancho" Villa (1878–1923), a Mexican revolutionary leader whose real name was Doroteo Arango Arámbula.

      • The idea of so-called race traitors (like Christina Osborne in this episode) being murdered and hung from a tree is inspired in part by The Turner Diary by Andrew MacDonald (the nom de plume of white supremacist William Pierce). This violent apocalyptic novel describes a Day of the Rope where so-called race traitors are hung. The book is popular with neo-Nazis and is reputed to have helped inspire the racist killing of James Byrd Jr. in Texas and the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah federal building in Oklahoma City.

      • Adam Schiff: I nearly resigned from the ACLU when they defended that racist march in Skokie.

        This refers to an actual case that the American Civil Liberties Union got involved with. In the late 1970s, Klansmen fought for the right to march through the primarily Jewish town of Skokie, Illinois, defended by both the A.C.L.U. and a Jewish lawyer.

      • Willis: Free at last, free at last, thank God Almighty, I'm free at last.
        Willis was trying to be ironic by imitating Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.. These were the last lines of King's famous "I Have A Dream" speech.

      • Lennie Briscoe: Get up, Adolf.
        Willis: The name's Willis.

        Adolf is a reference to Adolf Hitler, comparing Willis' white supremacist organization to the Nazis.
