Quotes

Gary Lesley: [about Lincoln Haver] I worked my ass of for years; getting him promotional deals, commercials, salary increases and this freaking boyfriend wanted to take it all away.
Elliot Stabler: Love sucks.
Gary Lesley: Yeah, doesn't love...
[yells]
Gary Lesley: Screw love! He's a football player. He's a piece of meat that I sell to the highest bidder. How many good years you think he's got left? Five? What, ten? If there's a miracle. I just... why couldn't he have just waited a couple years?
[laughs as Elliot and Olivia stare at him]

Up to standard!

I thought another good episode. A good story line, with Benton and Stabler getting opportunities to work out their interpersonal relationship and their approach to the issues raised by the particular case. I thought Rick Hoffman as the sports agent did a really good job of conveying complete sleaze! As to comments in previous reviews, Bailey Chase, playing Lincoln Haver, has stacked up a fair range of parts since then, perhaps most notably as Branch Connally in the Warner series "Longmire", but he sticks in my memory as Graham Miller, a member of the military monster-hunting unit and Riley Finn's best friend in series 4 and 5 of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer".
