The investigation into the murder of a former bookie turned mob informant reveals a disturbing new wrinkle in organized crime involving legitimate businessmen moonlighting as contract hitmen in a battle for mob leadership, and ends with a Federal ploy to nullify the plea bargain in the case, leaving McCoy seething and two more people dead.

Anita Van Buren: (listening to the surveillance tape) "It's like watching concrete harden.
Lennie Briscoe: (while arresting Federico Righetti) "The guys from 'Queer Eye for the Straight Guy' are going to want to have a serious sit-down with you.
Lennie Briscoe: (after the murder of Righetti - and his nurse) I could care less about these Mob guys...it's the collateral damage that gets to me.
Arthur Branch: We romanticize these people - make movies about 'em - and they're nothing but heartless scum.
Jack McCoy: You think they knew - the Feds - that Peter Righetti was going to have his uncle killed?
Arthur Branch: They might've predicted...that's a long way from knowing...
Jack McCoy: What if they used us to put Righetti back on the street?
Arthur Branch: I think you're giving the Feds way too much credit - they ain't that clever.
Jack McCoy: Still, lucky break for them...now they roll up the whole crew, starting with Peter Righetti for the murder of his uncle...
Arthur Branch: Good riddance.
