Sebastian arrives at the police station.
STABLER: "What are you doing here?" SEBASTIAN: "My psyche was telling me that I needed to be here." STABLER: "Well, then, that makes you the worst psychic ever!!" (meaning he did not need to be there)
I can't remember any other L&O SVU episode I laughed so hard through. Martin Short brought his comedic genius and timing and talents to this role as the "psychic".
STABLER pounds his fist on the wall next to SEBASTIAN STABLER: "Did you see that coming?" SEBASTIAN: "Well, I do see anger management classes in your future."
I don't know how the cast and crew kept their serious, "poles up our butts" facade with Short on set because he just makes everything funny. Even him possibly being the bad guy is funny.
They rerun L&O SVU on USA network all the time. Try to catch it on there. The title of this episode is "PURE". Though the crime is harsh - as all of them are on this show - just Short's presence, timing and dialogue bring an entertainment value to this show that I hadn't seen before.
BRAVO, MR. SHORT!!! And bravo to Mr. Meloni too. I didn't think I'd ever like another character more than Chris Keller (Oz), however, this show is the exception. Stabler is not only a hunka-hunka-burning love, but he's rock solid, a good American and a good guy through and through. Have to respect that!!
