Goofs

The entomologist claims that the blowfly larva on the dead baby were freshly laid, so the baby died not more than 3 hours before. Firstly flies lay eggs, not larva. And secondly, it takes anywhere from 12 to 24 hours for blow fly eggs to hatch into larva. See more »

Quotes

A.D.A. Casey Novak: What do you tell your boyfriend?
Detective Olivia Benson: I don't have one actually, once they find out what I do, the ones that don't pull away immediately get too interested and want to know all the sickening details.
A.D.A. Casey Novak: I guess it's easier on the men's side.
Detective Olivia Benson: Well, Fin doesn't talk about his personal life at work, Elliot doesn't talk about his work at home, and Munch has just given up.
