  • A really scary episode worth watching

    10
    If you're looking for a well-written episode that would keep you watching till the end and guessing then I would recommend this one. The actors's performance was excellent, most of all the killer mother, she was so believable, like from another planet, I'd say she didn't even realize she'd done anything wrong. And the father split between the love to his kids and his wife. Lennie's disgust was also nearly tangible, I mean, at first when questioning the husband, although everyone knew there was something wrong, he almost wished this had been an error that would be sorted out , and then, when the husband confessed, Lennie leaving the interrogation room, the disgust on his face was so apparent. The same above the grave, he was still hoping the cooling box would be empty, but it wasn't. What are some people capable of.moreless

  • QUOTES (9)

    • Martin Willick: I'm not scared of my wife, she's important to me. I love her.
      Jack McCoy: And not them? You didn't hold them, watch them sleep? You didn't love them?

    • Eileen Willick: I didn't kill them. Don't you understand how this hurts me? All of my babies die, and no one understands me!

    • Eileen Willick: I'm not a good mother.
      Lennie Briscoe: Why would you say that?
      Eileen Willick: My babies cry all the time. Other people's babies don't cry.
      Lennie Briscoe: What did you do when your babies cried?
      Eileen Willick: I want to go to the bathroom.

    • Martin Willick (after Briscoe keeps asking him to say where Emily is): There's a place near Hudson River, just down the street. We'd take Emily there, just to sit. Watch the sun set over New Jersey.
      Lennie Briscoe: Now you're being a good father. You're telling us the truth. (leaves the interrogation room and closes the door) Son of a bitch.

    • Anita van Buren: I don't care if this child was beamed up by ET. Let's find her before she's old enough to go to kindergarten.

    • Anita van Buren: I've seen babies abused to death by crazed mothers. This girl does not look like one of those babies.
      Mike Logan: She's just as dead.

    • Medical Examiner: She was clean, well-fed, wearing a new diaper . . . everything Dr. Spock says you should do for a baby.
      Lennie Briscoe: I guess I skipped the part about stuffing them in a cooler.

    • Eileen Willick: You don't know how cruel people can be.
      Mike Logan: Believe me, I'm getting an education.

    • Jack McCoy: If those were my children, I'd want that woman in prison.
      Adam Schiff: With a fifteen percent chance she's innocent? I wouldn't tell that to the next Mrs. McCoy.
