Did You Know?

Factual errors: The bodyguard has a Taurus PT92, which the detectives suspect is the murder weapon from a night club. Turns out there's a Glock 9mm involved, which is the actual murder weapon. Taurus' have a traditional "land and groove" rifling to the barrel. (Imparts spin to the bullet.) Glocks have a spiral hex shaped bore which compresses the bullet. Had the victim been shot with a Glock, the cops would have known immediately the bodyguard's Smith couldn't be the murder weapon.See more »

D.A. Nora Lewin:Have we set a grand jury date for Ms. Lawrence?
Jack McCoy:And call what witnesses? The only ones we can find are two men who'd rather go to jail than tell the truth.
D.A. Nora Lewin:So we indict Collins for perjury.
Jack McCoy:We can't prove he lied.
D.A. Nora Lewin:Lawrence and Collins both walk?
Jack McCoy:We got dissed. Apparently two careers are worth more than a person's life.
A.D.A. Serena Southerlyn:In a weird way, the dismissal hurt Collins more than the indictment. When his fans found out he wasn't the killer, his CD dropped ten places on the charts.
Jack McCoy:At this rate, he might have to go out and actually shoot somebody.
