“Look. ‘Law and Order’ is on. I’ve seen this episode, of course. Do they run the same ones over and over, or is it that I have seen every one there is? What a scary thought. Fortunately, I never remember what happens after the opening scene, when they find the dead person, so I can watch them all over again.
“That was a good one. Although one day maybe there will be a teen-ager on the show who isn’t a psycho killer.”—Jenny Allen, “Shouts and Murmurs: Awake!” The New Yorker, June 2, 2008
