Connie Rubirosa: You heard right.
Attorney Reardon: So McCoy's regained his sanity.

Sean Hauser: I'd have to do ten years? I didn't even kill anybody.
Michael Cutter: Well, right now you have a life sentence hanging over your head. So you can whine about it or you can cut your losses.

Political Statements
22 November 2008 | by prodigalpete2005See all my reviews

I noticed at the end after Jack McCoy held his press conference and was walking away, someone shouted "Is it true you were asked to join the Obama administration?" I have a problem with that. This episode aired on the day after the election. When was this episode filmed? It had to have been filmed before the election. It seems plain to me that Hollyweird is much more into manipulating the people to carry out their desires than for letting the political process move as it will. As a fan from the beginning, I have lost a lot of respect for the producers and writers. You need to curtail your political statements (ironic that the episode was about political statements. I will view future episodes with a great deal of skepticism now. Shame on you all.
