Trivia

At one point, Benson quotes to Stuckey "When you hear hoofbeats, think horses, not zebras". This is a famous medical aphorism credited to Dr. Theodore Woodward, from which the episode gets its name. A zebra is medical slang for arriving at an exotic or extravagant diagnosis, when a more commonplace explanation is more likely and preferable. See more »

Judge Elizabeth Donnelly: Mr. Stuckey, you're out of order, and seriously deluded. If this is your idea of doing a good job, you're in the wrong line of work.
CSU Tech Dale Stuckey: No you don't know me.
Judge Elizabeth Donnelly: I don't care to. Sit down and shut up.

CSU Screws up big time
25 August 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

A deranged sexual predator Nick Stahl is the prime suspect in the murder of a mother and the kidnapping of her baby. Fortunately the infant is found almost immediately, but that's far from the end of this episode.

Mike Doyle's new assistant in the Crime Scene Unit Noel Fisher has a nasty habit of getting under Christopher Meloni, but he gravitates to Mariska Hargitay almost like she was his mother. He was truly one of the most annoying characters this or any other series had, but in this episode he proves to be far more than annoying after his poor work forces Judge Judith Light to let Stahl go.

One of the best SVU episodes ever with an array of brilliant guest star performances from Fisher, Light, Stahl and Carol Kane who does a turn as Richard Belzer's ex-wife.
