Lennie Briscoe: Try us. We've been around the block a few hundred times.
Jeannie Stokes: I doubt that you've been in this neighborhood.

Abbie Carmichael: What do you call this?
Ed Green: Besides a bunch of crazy rich white people with too much time on their hands?
Lennie Briscoe: The best Skoda could come up with is "Necrophilia without Tears". Some kind of domination fetish. But your wife into an insulation shock and then you...have your way with her whichever way you can.
