    • TRIVIA (1)

      • Cragen mentions his wife, Marge (seen briefly in "The Blue Wall") in this episode. He comments that he doesn't get along with her mother and avoids answering the phone on Sundays when she calls.

    • QUOTES (5)

      • (Judge Franks arraigns Gregg.)
        Judge Franks: Do we have a plea?
        Gregg: Not guilty, your honor.
        Judge Franks: Paul?
        Robinette: The defendant savagely murdered an elderly woman, your honor.
        Judge Franks: Wait. Wait. Wait. Wait a minute. Wait. It says here, now, Mrs. Spiegelman was 61.
        Robinette: That's correct, your honor.
        Judge Franks: On my 61st birthday, you were cramming for a torts exam. I'd advise you to choose your adjectives a little more courteously, counselor.
        Robinette: The People request bail of $500,000.
        Knight: My client can hardly afford cab fare to Brooklyn, your honor. Why not make it a million?
        Judge Franks: Why not? (laughs) And they say the elderly lose their sense of humor. (laughs again) Bail is set at $250 - cash or bond.

      • Doug Pomerance: 30 years ago, they were supposed to clip the umbilical cord. You have enough money, they get to retie it.

      • Paul Robinette: Justice is swift, not fair.

      • (Ms. Knight may have pled her client out when he was innocent)
        Sally Knight: What do you care? I represent the defendant.
        Paul Robinette: And I represent the people. All of them.

      • Attorney: In law school, I took 'Civil Rights'. Kevin took 'Tax Planning for the Wealthy'.
