A marriage counselor who also works on Roman Catholic annulment cases is murdered in her office.

It would have been more productive to ask Molly Kilpatrick what strength her Valium (diazepam) tablets are, not just how many she takes. Valium tablets come in 2 mg, 5 mg, and 10 mg strengths. She says she usually takes one or two tablets, Curtis suggests maybe it was three or four, four tablets may sound like a lot but if she's only taking the 2 mg strength then that wouldn't even equal one 10 mg tablet. However, if she's taking three or four 10 mg tablets at one time, then that would be significant since that is an abnormally large dose and could very well cause blackouts and memory loss, which are common side effects of high doses of benzodiazepines.

A.D.A. Jamie Ross: Redfield agreed to full restitution of the missing assets, and he gets off with having his license pulled for three years. He'll probably count this as a win.
Jack McCoy: He can drive up to Bedford and crow to Atkins about it.
D.A. Adam Schiff: Where on earth did these people learn their ethics?
A.D.A. Jamie Ross: Law school.
D.A. Adam Schiff: Of course.
