Trivia

Goofs

Goren calls a wedding ring a "proof of life". A "proof of life" is not an inanimate object, like a ring. A "proof of life" is voice on the telephone, an image or video with some way to prove it was just taken and the person is in fact alive. A ring does not prove a person is alive or dead. It's just a ring. See more »

Quotes

Vic Bowman: He said that there were two kinds of wives: show dogs and mutts.

Trivia
18 February 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you haven't yet seen the episode Zoonotic (another favorite), this review mentions a couple of character names (I don't know if that's much of a spoiler actually). This was one of my favorite episodes. All of the actors were terrific! Then again, I have yet to see anything less than a stellar performance on any Law and Order episode. I especially got a kick out of the scene at the hospital where Goren introduces himself as Dr. Roger Stern and Eames as Dr. Borman (these were the names of the doctors/antagonists in the episode "Zoonotic"). Interesting bit of trivia. I'm surprised that other fans of the show didn't mention this.
