Quotes

Jack McCoy: [to Novak] Five years ago, the cops responded to a disturbance call in your apartment. You told the officers it was mistake, but it isn't true, is it?

Stupid Turf War
31 May 2013 | by See all my reviews

Arye Gross guest stars as the child molester murderer who comes up from Louisiana and starts practicing his criminal behavior in the Big Apple. As Benson and Stabler develop the case and discover his criminal past from Louisiana, the FBI steps in and wins the battle to have him tried there where the death penalty prevails.

Here's where this episode truly gets stupid. Diane Neal as Casey Novak decides to get into a turf war with the Feds and goes to defense lawyer John Cullum with whom she's crossed swords with before to represent Gross to get him tried here. Why, God only knows except that she's very territorial.

Sam Waterston is 100% right when he threatens Neal with being fired from the DA's office. I think she should have been.
