Logan: Snuff films. We got a couple of fake ones in the eighties.
Bricoe: You think she's pretending?
Logan: Nope.

Briscoe: Whatever happened to Spin the Bottle?
Logan: Whatever happened to their parents?

Logan: How'd you like to be in one of those movies?
Briscoe: Are you kidding? I don't even like to look at my own x-rays.

Kincaid: Greer filed his notice of appeal. All evidence relating to the Mack Rangers should have been excluded.
McCoy: Why, because without it Greer might've won?
Kincaid: First amendment. The Constitution?
Schiff: Yeah. That pesky thing.

How many points do you think you'll be worth in prison, son?

–Jack McCoy to Ethan Quinn

Kincaid: They still don't think they did anything wrong.
McCoy: Maybe seeing their friends in Attica will change their minds.

[Kincaid finds McCoy in a bar to discuss the case against Kyle and Shane]
McCoy: Rule #1: Never drink at work. Rule #2: Never discuss work while drinking.
Kincaid: They've overturned the verdicts and remanded for a new trial. Evidence of the Mack Rangers is excluded.
McCoy: Rule #3: If rule #2 is broken, never drink alone. [hands Kincaid a drink]

Background information and notes

  • This episode is based on the Spur Posse case. The posse was a group of high school boys from Lakewood, California, who used a point system to keep track of and compare their sexual conquests. The founder of the group chose the name "Spur Posse" when a favourite basketball player of theirs, David Robinson, was signed to the San Antonio Spurs. The group came to national attention on March 18, 1993, when the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department arrested a number of the members for various sexual crimes. Prosecutors later dropped all but one of the charges after determining most of the encounters were consensual, although with underage girls. They had the opportunity to prosecute the considerably older boys for statutory rape but declined to do so. (Spur Posse at Wikipedia)
  • Goof: Barbara Spiegel is incorrectly credited as "Judge Harriet Doremus" when the nameplate shown by Barbara clearly says "Ellen Dreiser"
