References Edit

  • Dr. David Lingard is nicknamed "Dr. Death" in this episode. Lingard was imprisoned after performing several assisted suicides (including one on television) and had been out of prison for a month at the time of "Called Home." The real-life Dr. Jack Kevorkian was similarly nicknamed "Dr. Death" and was similarly imprisoned for several years for performing several assisted suicides (including one on television).

Quotes Edit

"Jack, you grew up with Woodward and Bernstein. I grew up with Geraldo."
Michael Cutter (speaking to Jack McCoy)
"People v. Duffy: Why don't you look that one up on that gadget?"
Jack McCoy (speaking to Michael Cutter, who's holding a BlackBerry; this is the first time we see Cutter's BlackBerry, and he is seen using the BlackBerry extensively in this episode and throughout his run on the series)
Michael Cutter: Branch used to fill these shelves with knick-knacks and awards.
Jack McCoy: It's a working office now, not a show room.


Background information and notes Edit

  • Jeremy Sisto joins the cast as Detective Cyrus Lupo, replacing Milena Govich's Detective Nina Cassady. Oddly, Sisto portrayed defense attorney Clint Glover in the episode, "The Family Hour," which aired immediately before "Called Home" aired.
  • Sam Waterston's Jack McCoy is promoted to DA, replacing Fred Thompson's Arthur Branch as DA, as Thompson left the show to seek the 2008 Republican nomination for President of the United States. In a conversation at the end of the preceding episode "The Family Hour," Branch had hinted that McCoy would one day replace him as DA. Ironically, in the season 16 episode, "Red Ball," Branch had said that McCoy was a great prosecutor but would never be a district attorney.
  • Linus Roache joins the cast as Executive ADA Michael Cutter, replacing McCoy as Executive ADA.
