Quotes

Stabler: "Pedestrian struck. Send a bus." Sounds like cop talk.
Tutuola: How does a cop on the Upper East Side know about an accident downtown?
Stabler: Unless he's the one who ran her over.


Stabler: Okay, so he goes ten blocks to kill himself. What's wrong with his own roof?
Warner: I answer that. I can tell you what he was doing before he jumped. See the glitter on his pants, known in the trade as "booty dust".
Tutuola: Larry had himself one last lap dance before he took the plunge.


Gates: Garrett plays these games up to 40 hours a week.
Novak: It's amazing he had time to commit murder. Let me know when you have the results.


Garrett: Oh, shut up. Bang-bang, you're dead.
Seligman: Get him out of here.
Garrett: Game's over. You won.


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 act of modifying the video game NtenCity is based on Columbine killer Eric Harris adding levels to the video game Doom, called the "Harris levels".
  • 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.
