The squad is at a loss on what to do with a violent homicide when Stabler's son points out that the event is straight out of a video game. Interviewing the game's creators leads them to a former employee, who then leads them (with a few other steps along the way) to a teenage couple who claim to be unable to distinguish fantasy from reality.

Melinda Warner: I can tell you what he was doing before he jumped. See the glitter on his pants--known in the trade as "booty dust".
Odafin Tutuola: Larry had himself one last lap dance before he took the plunge.


Background information and notes

  • The video game NtenCity and its legal woes are very similar to the furor over Grand Theft Auto III. Garrett Perle mentions using a cat as a silencer. This is a reference to Postal 2, released in 2003. Also in 2003, makers of GTA III were sued after two teens claimed that they were inspired by the game to murder.
  • The controller that is used during the PET scan is actually a Nintendo GameCube controller except the colors are slightly different.
  • Goof: Cragen turns off the TV/game after Dickie Stabler shows them the game but after Cragen talks, the camera is back on the screen which shows the lady still on the screen bleeding.
