[Fontana and Green are questioning the bartender in an obviously mobbed up "social club"]
Detective Ed Green: If you don't talk, I'm sure Granados will.
Bartender: I thought you don't know where he is.
Detective Ed Green: Oh, we're gonna find him. Doctors say in his condition he ain't gonna get that far.

Mercedes Ruehl studied real hard, maybe saw some of Laurence Olivier's work, to get down a really nice mittel-Europa accent to play an Orthodox Jewish recent widow in this Law And Order story. Her being a widow is the reason for this case that Dennis Farina and Jesse Martin catch.

The victim, Ruehl's late husband was a diamond dealer and reputed as is the case in his business to carry large amounts of stones or cash. But as the investigation shows a few people had reasons to want to kill this guy for the company he kept.

For one thing the man was also quite the player and even the good Orthodox wife that Ruehl is she got tired of his infidelities which were serial in legion. Too many lap dances, just one too many.

The answer to all this is in their Orthodox beliefs and the position Ruehl would be in with the community and her children. What things religion can be responsible for.

Ruehl is outstanding in this Law And Order episode.
