* "Fixed", from Season 15, is a sequel to Season 1's "Indifference", which was easily one of the series' most disturbing episode. While "Fixed" isn't exactly a barrel of laughs either, it's nice to see that Carla Lowenstein - in "Indifference", a victim of abuse who herself became an abusive, coke-addled lunatic - has recovered and found sanity and peace since her husband's imprisonment, and that their surviving son is well-adjusted teenager who was adopted by a loving, healthy family.

* When talking to the girlfriend if a suspect, the woman mentions that she's "500 days sober". Lennie, a recovering alcoholic himself, gives her a brief, but sincere, "All right!"

* Submission (Season 18, Episode 12): The murder case of the week starts when a dog fighting ring is exposed and the finger of a dead woman is found in a deceased dog. Lupo was interested in getting a dog and wanted to adopt one of the dogs rescued from the club, but everybody kept telling him the dogs were too dangerous to reintroduce to society and would be put down. [[spoiler:At the end of the episode, we see Lupo taking one of the dogs for a walk in the park, petting him and the dog showing great enthusiasm for his new master.]] (TruthInTelevision: The episode was based on the Bad Newz Kennels dog fighting investigation, which sent NFL star Michael Vick and others to federal prison. There was discussion during the case about whether or not the dogs would be safe for adoption. [[spoiler:By the time Sports Illustrated released a follow-up on the Bad Newz Kennels dogs six months after the episode aired, almost all of the dogs were successfully rehabilitated and adopted.]])

* "Challenged" (season 19, episode 2): Detectives Lupo and Bernard are interviewing some developmentally disabled men who live in a group home about something they may have seen on a visit to a nearby park. The men are excited to talk to real live police officers. One of them is especially fixated on coffee at the stationhouse: "Do they have coffee at the police station? Can you drink as much coffee as you want?" When Lupo and Bernard return to the home for follow-up questions, they bring some police insignia patches... and a Thermos of police station coffee.

* Lennie Briscoe was, after fourteen seasons, the first person on Law & Order to retire. One cop got shot, another was benched with minor paralysis. One ADA died in a car crash, one returned to private practice, the original made a move to private practice, one moved on to grander federal work. Lenny realized he was getting old and decided to hang up the badge. As he packs up his desk, all the actors get double points because Jerry Orbach was, at the time, the series LongRunner. He was moving to a part time gig at TrialByJury, but...

He confesses to this in a TearJerker scene that pushes Jack to his limit: Man 1, 10 years. Connie wonders how the daughter ''couldn't'' understand her father's choice.
