From "Law & Order: Ghosts (#16.3)" (2005)
Jack McCoy: What the hell do you think you're doing, detective?
Detective Joe Fontana: Excuse me?
Jack McCoy: You promised Nick Zona a liquor license? And you didn't tell me about it?
Detective Joe Fontana: First of all, watch your tone. It's a little over the top for my liking. And as far as Nick Zona's concerned, I promised him nothing.
Jack McCoy: That's not what he thinks.
Detective Joe Fontana: I don't control what he thinks.
Jack McCoy: What did you tell him?
Detective Joe Fontana: I told him that if he told the truth, that I would help him out down the line. I also specifically said "I can't make promises."
Jack McCoy: You know I'm required to notify the defense with respect to any promises or inducements.
Detective Joe Fontana: Hey, if I say it's not a promise, how the hell is it a promise?
