Quotes

Jeannie Kerns: [to Olivia] in the old days on a Saturday night, I could've made enough for the whole week. You should've seen this place back in the day. You should've seen me. I was fine. There'd be cars lined up four deep on East Bay Avenue. Oof, and there was so much money. Ooh, we had some fun.
Olivia Benson: Fun? That include getting your teeth cracked and floaters in your eye?
Jeannie Kerns: Oh, and those high-rollers. There was nothing that a pair of thigh-highs, a stretch limo and an eight ball couldn't fix. Now...

story was too long, IMHO.
23 February 2013 | by magnetox1See all my reviews

This story ran longer than it should have, there was no reason to drag it out another fifteen minutes or so past where the case was wrapped up. Cut out everything after the FBI agent leaves, and Benson's "so what happens to her now, toss her back out on the street?" (or whatever the line was). would have been a better ending. The entire "intervention" sequence was unnecessary, and the story would have been much better without it. There have been other episodes that had "you can't solve every problem" endings, so it's not as if there wasn't a precedent. This is just not a show that works if you have a "happy ending", it's supposed to be more realistic than that.
