Partners in Crime

  • Trivia

    • When Danny Reyes asks if they know Sarah Belkin's cause of death, the detective answers that they have, "called in a forensic anthropologist, but there's not much to work with." A forensic anthropologist can advise on the cause of death, but he has no legal right to determine it. Only a forensic pathologist who is the Medical Examiner can officially determine the cause of death, but he can use the opinion of specialists such as a forensic anthropologist to make his final determination.

  • Quotes

    • Danny: You and I have had our share of problems. You're arrogant, condescending, abusive…
      Stark: Thank you.
      Danny: But you're also the best damn lawyer I've ever seen, and you're doing a lot of good. So before you use that, ask yourself: is it really worth it?

    • Stark: You need to get Normandy.
      Jessica: That could mean putting you on the stand, making you talk about that night. You'll lose your license, maybe more.
      Stark: Do what you need to do.

    • Jessica: (to Stark) You haven't been straight with me yet. Why should I believe you now?

    • Stark: Changed the carpet, huh?
      Frank Bell: Oh, the red stuff gave me a headache. Who picked that, anyway?
      Stark: I did.
