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 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.
