Mrs. Craig: Just take the jewels and go!
Johnny Feist: (heavily agitated) You're giving me PERMISSION?!

Dede Feist: You alright, sweetie?
Elsa: I lost my job cleaning rooms, and my boyfriend took off with all my savings.
Dede Feist: Tell you what, I got a few dollars I could spare if you help me fold some laundry. (hands the girl some shirts) You can start with my son's t-shirts. He's at work right now. Hey... can I get a smile, sweetie?

Mike Logan: Rudy's not the mayor anymore, but that doesn't mean we can't still have some fun!

Mike Logan: Should've warned him not to expect any thanks.

Background information and notes

  • Jamey Sheridan and Annabella Sciorra both already worked together in Whispers in the Dark film.
  • Logan's statement that an ex-partner was a great pool player was the franchise's first clear suggestion that Lennie Briscoe had, in fact, died since the real-life death of Jerry Orbach.
  • This episode marks the first appearance in the franchise for actor Peter Scanavino. He would appear in a guest-starring role in a season 14 episode of Law & Order: SVU before landing the role of Detective (later ADA) Dominick Carisi, Jr. on SVU beginning with season 16.
