(On loaning "Mack" the money for a van)
- Elliot McEvoy: You're just gonna trust me to pay you back, huh?

- Ray Schenkel: Get the van. We'll have a good time with it.

- – Ray Schenkel
Background information and notes Edit
- This episode was filmed during season 6, but was held for airing until season 7.
- Starting with this season, Tamara Tunie (M.E. Warner) is the first medical examiner in the Law & Order franchise to appear in the opening credits, though she does not actually appear in this episode.
- Elliot's cover story about working at his sister's husband's body shop is taken from the season 3 episode, "Justice".
- In the beginning of the episode, there is a sign that says Elmira Correctional Facility, but the facility used is not the actual prison at Elmira.
- Nitpick: They never explain how Ray Schenkel managed to commit the rape at the Port Authority without leaving any DNA behind. For that matter, they never present any evidence that he actually did commit the rape.
- Nitpick: Elliot could've gotten in a lot of trouble for almost killing Ray Schenkel. He could have just shot the guy in the leg or something, but he almost killed him by strangling him.
