      • Warren Bartlett: Do you know how many matrimonial lawyers were attacked last year?
        Lennie Briscoe: I know one that should have been.

    • NOTES (2)

    • ALLUSIONS (4)

      • This episode appears to be ripped from the headlines of the Paul Cox case.

      • Lennie Briscoe: Didn't some drug company get in trouble over stars in their logo? Satanism?
        Hester Blighe: That was religious fanatics. Nothing like that here.

        The company Briscoe is talking about is Proctor & Gamble. Known more as a maker of home care, household and grooming products, P&G is not, strictly speaking, a drug company. In the 1980s and 90s, rumors and urban legends arose that the P&G logo, a man in the moon with 13 stars, was a satanic symbol. The rumors were supported, in part, by people connected with Amway, a company with strong ties to conservative religious groups. As a distributor of household products, Amway was also a competitor. In March of 2007, Proctor & Gamble won a $19.25 million settlement in US District Court against a group of Amway distributors.

      • Adam Schiff: Look at those boys out in L.A.
        Jack McCoy: This isn't the Menendez brothers, Adam.

        At the time this episode aired, Lyle and Erik Menendez were awaiting their retrial for killing their parents. The jury was deadlocked in the first trial. The Menendez brothers first said that their parents had been murdered by the Mafia. They later admitted to the killings but said they had been severely abused as children. The prosecution claimed that they just wanted to collect an inheritance from their father and that they killed their mother so she could not collect the inheritance herself. Lyle and Erik were convicted in their second trial. They were both sentenced to life without parole.

      • Anita van Buren: I don't like unsolved mysteries, so before we hand this over to Robert Stack...
        The late actor Robert Stack used to host the television show Unsolved Mysteries. The mysteries featured on the show included paranormal phenomena, missing people, and unsolved crimes.
