Did You Know?


Stabler's off-duty weapon isn't a SIG Sauer P228, for one thing the P228 has an external hammer, this pistol is a striker fired semi-auto (meaning no external hammer). The pistol Stabler has is a Kahr K9 9x19mm, you can tell it's not a SIG by the shape of the trigger guard plus the groves on the slide, they go from the top of the slide to the bottom, SIG P228 slides only have groves that go halfway up the slide.

When Stabler is in therapy, Dr. Hendrix asks Stabler if he had ever thought about "eating his gun". He tells her, "Suicide is a sin." Her reply is, "So is divorce.". However, according to the Catholic church, it is not divorce that is the sin, but marrying another spouse after divorce (without having the church annul the previous marriage). If a Catholic remarries the divorced spouse in a civil ceremony, however, that is not a sin, since the civil divorce was not recognized by the church to begin with. See more »


Donald Cragen: [to Stabler] What are you doing? You told the Sawyers that Pamela's better off not making a complaint.
Detective Elliot Stabler: Olivia tell you that?
Donald Cragen: No, Pamela's parents. This is worse than breaking the rules this time. You put the entire squad's credibility on the line.
Detective Elliot Stabler: Captain...
Donald Cragen: You did everything you could to get your ex-partner's kid a pass.
Detective Elliot Stabler: Captain...
Donald Cragen: As of right this minute, you are on vacation. Just get your ass out of my sight before I do something we both regret.

Some unpleasant issues
30 August 2015 | by See all my reviews

Fans of SVU know it doesn't take much to set off Detective Elliott Stabler when he's on a case. But this particular case involves people close to him and he's forced to confront some unpleasant truths about himself with psychologist Mary Stuart Masterson.

The squad gets called in when there's a report of domestic violence, a star high school athlete beating up a girlfriend. The doer turns out to be Paul Wesley and he's the son of a former partner of Christopher Meloni, Noah Emmerich.

The cause of it all is steroid rage. And Wesley is far from the only abuser. But the real issue is the family one when Meloni catches Emmerich beating up on his son in the courthouse bathroom and has to really get physical with him.

Which sends Meloni to the shrink where a lot of Stabler family history is laid bare.

A really good episode for Christopher Meloni who dominates here.
