Trivia

Writing a illegitimate prescription with either a stolen prescription pad, or attempting to forge a prescription pad of your own, or altering the dosage, drug strength, drug quantity, refill quantity or dispense date of a legitimately written prescription in New York state is forgery in the second degree, a class D felony which can carry a prison sentence of 1 1/3 to 7 years. If you successfully pass the forged prescription and the pharmacy fills it and the prescription was for a controlled substance, but it is later discovered that you used a forged prescription you will face an additional charge of Criminal possession of a controlled substance in the fifth degree, also a class D felony. However if you intended to sell the controlled substance you obtained with the forged prescription you could face a charge of Criminal possession of a controlled substance in the third degree, a class B felony with a sentence of 3 to 5 years with no prior record and a maximum sentence of 25 years if you have priors.

Goofs

While kneeling over the body, Goren states that the doctor was shot in the hand. He then lifts the doctors arm and we see a bullet hole in his palm. But then Goren turns the doctors hand over and there is no corresponding hole in the back of the hand. See more »

Quotes

Det. Peter Lyons: Look, Alexandra, most of what I do is outreach. I'm more comfortable interpreting for the community than interrogating it.
Alexandra Eames: You helped us at the rink.
Det. Peter Lyons: Well, there your partner was right. That's a public place. This is completely different.
Alexandra Eames: Shankly was out of line, but there is still a murderer out there targeting people who educate and care for the deaf. Are you comfortable with that?

They can read lips and body language, detective
27 September 2017 | by CeccacciPaolo1977See all my reviews

A ear surgeon is found dead in his clinic with a shot in the hand and bruises on his neck. At first it appeared to be a robbery because some painkillers are stolen from the cabinet. Another ear surgeon (Timothy Carhart), with whom the victim had some professional dispute was the first suspect, primarily due to his addiction to painkillers, but he had an alibi. Another attempted murder (a local dean) led the detectives to another angle: the deaf world, so close to outsiders. Each suspect was not so willing to testify, so detectives had to deal with shaky motive and contradictory alibis. At the end anyway the case was solved.

Goren tried to communicate with body languages and he seemed sympathetic towards them, not twisting suspects arm even when he had the chance.
