Quotes

Tyler Browning: Shea was always portraying Afghanistan like this Holy War. You know the real reason we invaded that country?
Joe Fontana: Have you been downtown lately? Seen that hole in the skyline?
Tyler Browning: Bin Laden was the excuse they were waiting for. This administration wants to build an oil and gas pipeline from Tajikistan...
Joe Fontana: Tajikistan, Afghanistan, as long as the gas finds its way into my Benz, I don't really care where it comes from.

Lesbian crush
27 March 2020 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

I probably would not have liked the opinions of the victim in this Law And Order episode. Sounds a lot like Rush Limbaugh. But his wife Paula Devicq wanted out of the marriage so bad that she seduced a lesbian woman with a promise of a couple's bliss if only Dana Eskelson would rid her of hubby.

This is the case Sam Waterston has to win. A lot depends on Devicq's preppie and naive son Joseph Cross. He can't blieve this about mom, who could?

Guest stars really take this episode from the regulars.
