Robert Goren: Botox works by paralyzing the nerves around the facial muscles, doesn't it?
Alexandra Eames: Does it look like I'd know?

The evidence against Julie lays out in a nice straight line. Juries like straight lines.

–Ron Carver

What's one check, when you can marry the checkbook?

–Robert Goren

Salon Owner: I'm not licensed to dispense botox.
Robert Goren: We've found that a lot of people do things they aren't licensed to do.

Not only does he remove hairs, he splits them.

–Robert Goren

Death by botox. Live slow, die old, and leave a good looking corpse.

–Elizabeth Rodgers

Kenneth Reyfield: It wasn't an accident. Is that what you're inferring?
Robert Goren: You mean 'implying', the listeners 'infer'.
Alexandra Eames: And detectives 'speculate', since we don't know the cause of death yet.

Background information and notes

Background information and notes

  • A portion of the filming transpired around the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel (A Hilton property) located at 301 Park Ave, especially near the North Wing located at East 50th Street where one can see the "leak windows" (or pierced stonework, using Western Architectural terminology, leaked window is more of a Chinese description) of St. Bartholemew's Church, in the background, during a few scenes. As for the design of said windows it is most likely Byzantine or Romanesque.
