  • QUOTES (1)

    • (After the jury has rendered a guilty verdict)
      Rodney Fallon: You could still recommend Judge Bradley sentencing concurrently.
      Jack McCoy: Twelve life sentences. That's what he deserves.
      Rodney Fallon: I don't disagree.
      Jack McCoy: You agree? He's criminally responsible?
      Rodney Fallon: He did a terrible thing but in a way he was right. It could have been averted. Billions for prisons, no health care.
      Jack McCoy: I don't make social policy.
      Rodney Fallon: No, you just have to clean after those who do.

  • NOTES (2)

  • ALLUSIONS (3)

    • Andrea Yates (who drowned her five children) is mentioned as a reason for going ahead with the death penalty. A year after this episode aired, Ms. Yates was given a new trial and found not guilty by reason of insanity, and now is confined to a low security state mental hospital.

    • This episode appears to be ripped from the headlines of the Glendale Rail Crash, which killed eleven people. The crash was caused by Juan Manuel Alvarez, who left his SUV on the tracks attempting to commit suicide.

    • Nick Falco: We're gonna need to talk to Casey Jones too.

      "Casey Jones" is the legendary railroad engineer in the classic folk song with the same title.
