AIRED:
In New York, Briscoe and Curtis try to pin down the suspect's schedule on the night of the murder, but find instead that another man was in the area at the right time and more importantly, might have a motive for the crime. After a new arrest warrant is issued, McCoy and Ross have to fly to L.A. to defend their warrant against attacks by the man's defense counsel, Ross's former husband Neal Gorton.moreless

  • QUOTES (4)

    • (Mr. Ellison and his attorney speak to the press after Evan Grant is cleared of Heidi's murder)
      Mr. Ellison: He's the one who did it, not Eddie Newman. Eddie Newman passed a lie detector test, and the DA knows it.
      Attorney: (polygraph results in hand) I have the results right here. The District Attorney has let loose a monster upon this city. Evan Grant killed Heidi Ellison, and he'll kill again.
      (Ross exits the courthouse.)
      Reporter: Miss Ross, is it true you had the polygraph results?
      Ross: Lie detector tests are inadmissible in court for good reason. They're unreliable. Our evidence points to Mr. Newman's guilt.

    • (during a motion hearing to clear Evan Grant of the murder charges)
      Jamie Ross: The district attorney has concluded the weight of credible evidence against the defendant will not sustain the charges and withdraws, without prejudice, all pending criminal charges arising out of the events described in the indictment.
      Judge Gance: Thank you, Miss Ross. Mr. Grant, the charges against you have been withdrawn. Your bail is exonerated, and you are free to go. We're adjourned. (bangs gavel)
      (Evan and his attorney embrace, but Heidi's father in the gallery jumps out of his seat in protest)
      Mr. Ellison: No! No! He killed my daughter! You can't do this!
      Judge Gance: (bangs gavel) Order! Officer, please remove him from my courtroom.
      Mr. Ellison: You can't do this! No! He killed my daughter! This is wrong! He's a murderer! That... That... That animal butchered my girl!
      Judge Gance: ORDER!

    • (After an L.A. judge rules to nullify an extradition order.)
      Jack McCoy: Speak up, Your Honor. There are some people in the Bronx who didn't hear you.

    • Adam Schiff: I want you to kick the livin' daylights outta Neal Gorton. You can dig up Thomas Dewey to help ya! You're gonna win this case! Whatever you have to do, I want a conviction!

  • NOTES (0)

  • ALLUSIONS (2)

    • Lennie Briscoe: Hey, we're not going to get into a slow speed chase with the guy.
      This is a reference to the slow speed chase of O.J. Simpson in a white Ford Bronco on June 17, 1994.

    • Adam Schiff: You can dig up Thomas Dewey to help you.

      Thomas Dewey was a prosecutor who made it his mission to take down the mob in the 1930s and 1940s, and even ran for president in 1948.
