"Why, Detective, is that your phone vibrating in your pocket, or do you just find me terribly exciting?"
– Humphrey Becker, after Stabler's cellphone goes off during the interrogation.
(Huang has told Becker that the FBI have gotten involved in the case)
Humphrey Becker: And what are they saying about me?
Dr. George Huang: That you're impotent. (pause)
Humphrey Becker: Now why would they say that?
Dr. George Huang: All of RDK's victims were raped. None of your victims were.
Humprey Becker: They have no idea what I did to those women.
Dr. George Huang: Well, you didn't rape them.
Dr. Huang: What did your mother do to you?
Humphrey Becker: Please! With you people it's always about the mother.
Ida Becker: I couldn't take him anywhere. Not even to my movies.
Humphrey Becker: Shut up!
Ida Becker: As soon as the lights went down, he'd throw a tantrum until they asked us to leave.
Humphrey Becker: Well, you sure in hell found a way to go to them anyway.
Dr. George Huang: How'd you manage that?
Ida Becker: Left him at home.
Humphrey Becker: Shut up!
Elliot Stabler: Alone?
Ida Becker: I made sure he couldn’t hurt himself
Humphrey Becker: (visibly agitated) Please...
Elliot Stabler: You locked him in the closet
Ida Becker: It was only for two hours. But he'd get so worked up, he'd soil himself.
Humphrey Becker: (enraged) Shut up! Don't you ever shut up?! (screaming) DON'T YOU EVER SHUT UP?!
Background information and notes Edit
- RDK is probably based on the notorious BTK killer, Dennis Rader, who murdered ten people between 1974 and 1991; by sheer coincidence, when the episode aired in October 2004 - 13 years after the last killing and the trail seemingly long gone cold - police in Wichita, Kansas, having received a letter from BTK about a previously unknown murder, were busy making the case which would lead to Rader's arrest four months later.
- During the episode, Becker leaves a note saying "Who do I have to kill to get on page 1 above the fold?". This is similar to the opening of a letter written by BTK killer Dennis Rader, who wrote, "How many do I have to Kill before I get a name in the paper or some national attention."
