Plot[edit | edit source]
When a business card belonging to Detective Olivia Benson is found on the body of a homicide victim who's never identified as either the victim or perpetrator of a sex crime, the Special Victims Unit is brought in to help investigate, and it is soon discovered that the killers were a mother-daughter team of con artists who had previously eluded Benson.

Quotes[edit | edit source]
- Alexandra Borgia: You're on a medication cocktail?
- Arliss Driver: Eight pills a day. I shared a needle with a friend. Now he's dead, and my white-cell count is in the basement. My life went from April to crap.
- Jack McCoy (to Lorraine Dillon after April's performance on the stand): Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice ... no deal.
- April Troost [to Olivia]: I don't know...I can be pretty convincing.
- Olivia Benson: I was hoping you'd say that. (Door opens and Lorraine comes in.)
- Lorraine Dillon: I told them about how you confessed to me about killing the baby, April.
- April Troost: No.
- Lorraine Dillon: How you called me up that night so worried and guilty and needing me.
- April Troost: What'd you get for telling them?
- Lorraine Dillon: 20 years.
Background information and notes[edit | edit source]
- This episode is the conclusion of the Law & Order: Special Victims Unit episode, "Design", which aired September 27, 2005. In the episode, April Troost and Lorraine Dillon were running a scam involving stolen sperm.
- Milena Govich would later return to the series as Det. Nina Cassady.
- Fontana says 'begs the question', by which he means 'raises the question'. This is an incorrect (if increasingly common) use of the expression. To 'beg the question' refers to a circular argument in logic, specifically, an argument where one of the premises presupposes the accuracy of the conclusion.
- Considering Benson had no history with Patrick Sullivan, they never do a good job of explaining why his last action was calling her.
- Patrick Sullivan had a homosexual relationship with the male nurse at the care home, yet this was never returned to.
- Goof: It is very clear that David Glass is not "hanging" by the way the rope is draped down on his neck.
