Quotes Edit

Krolinksy: Please, I have a family...
McCoy: I feel sorry for them.


"There's people like him in every neighborhood. Could be the Little League coach, your kid's favorite teacher . . . it's too bad they don't glow in the dark."
Anita van Buren
Father Navarro: When Father Krolinsky was pronounced cured, he was sent to another parish.
McCoy: How many times was he pronounced cured?


Schiff: Sounds like Krolinsky's been behaving himself all these years.
McCoy: It just means he hasn't been caught. I've prosecuted pedophiles, Adam. They defy rehabilitation.


"He was a big deal, our parents loved him. What are kids gonna do against a parish priest?"
Mike Logan
Krolinksy: I want to get help. I'm a sick man. I want to get help.
McCoy: You're an adult. Your victims are children. There's nothing you could say that would make me feel sorry for you.


"We called you 'Father'. How could you do that to us? You even did it to your own kid! How could you do that?"
Mike Logan

Background information and notes Edit

  • This episode is based on the James Porter case in Boston. Porter was accused of molesting over 200 boys and girls while he was a priest. The archdiocese responded by denying the victims' claims of abuse or transferring Porter to other parishes. Porter eventually left the priesthood and got married. He was later convicted for molesting a teenage girl who baby-sat his children. (Source: James Porter (Catholic priest) at Wikipedia)
  • Cragen makes a comment about his fourteen-year-old daughter, even though it's been previously established that he and his wife Marge have no children.
