Quotes

Michael Cutter: Look, sacred cows are for barbecuing, Jack. You may have had Woodward and Bernstein, but I grew up with Giraldo and then Judith Miller. I mean, reporters, they're just more clowns to the circus now.
D.A. Jack McCoy: A fine sentiment. I hope you have an actual legal theory to back it up, because simple negligence won't get you there unless you can prove malice.
Michael Cutter: [his phone chirps] Jack, it's Rubirosa. Nolan just filed for a motion to dismiss. What do you want me to do?
D.A. Jack McCoy: Duffy. Look that one up in your gadget.

Dr. Kevorkian on call
28 December 2017 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

This opening episode of season 18 introduces Jeremy Sisto as Detective Cyrus Lupo who has been over seas on intelligence missions for the NYPD. His brother has taken his own life because of terminal cancer. But he's gotten some help from nurse Marin Ireland who is the daughter of and devoted disciple for her father Brad Dourif, a Kevorkian like doctor who has just been released from prison for some assisted suicides.

There is still a lot of controversy concerning the ethics of what Kevorkian was doing in real life. But Ireland has an agenda all her own involving a TV news reporter Michael McKean whose TV documentary helped put Dourif away.

The story was a good introduction to Cyrus Lupo and to Linus Roache as ADA Michael Cutter now that Sam Waterston is the new DA. Cutter's trial ends in a way that few could have foreseen.

Some folks if they have a cause will do anything to make a point.
