Munch instigates more dark-funny on the first episode of the new season: Fin and I are thinking about starting up a bar. Let me run it past the guys at my next AA meeting. The early episode where Munch is called in to testify against a shrink who treated hysteria the old-fashioned way. What was that treatment?
Miss Weber was told to disrobe, put her feet up in stirrups, and picture David Hasslehoff from Baywatch. Your honor, this witness is not qualified to testify on the treatment for hysteria. Actually, sir, I am. Up untilhysteria was one of the most commonly diagnosed illnesses among women.
The medical treatment was hysterical paroxysm. Could the witness spell that? Would it surprise you to learn that, historically, the onus fell upon physicians to bring about the relief of these ladies' symptoms? Your honor, please instruct counsel to withold his questions until cross. I don't mind, your honor. In fact, I believe the manual version of this treatment dates back to Hippocrates and was attested to right up until the Middle Ages, up until the s, when the vibrator was invented to speed things along.
Detective, is this practice currently against the law? And so is videotaping it. Which culminates in her very bluntly telling him she's still a virgin even as she kicks the ball to him. He stands stock-still while the ball goes right past him and says simply "Okay. He can't describe her face cause he was too busy checking out her butt. Their expressions after hearing this can best be described as a Flat "What.
To which the man defensively responds, "I'm an ass man, and I make no apologies for it! So Elliot determines the best way to get his attention is to turn the volume up suddenly. The best part is Olivia. She looks like a little kid worried her parents are going to catch her with her hand in the cookie jar, so to speak. Mariska is corpsing like crazy when Chris gets on the P. After the initial announcement, some poor stock boy hangs his head and slowly stride forward, prompting Olivia to clarify over the P.
And that's when Chris starts corpsing. In both actors' cases, it works because it's completely in character. Stabler and Fin in "Wildlife" telling rapper "Gots Money" about how, when he goes to prison, his cellie will roll a pair of dice to decide how many times to rape him: Hey, I gots an eleven! Made even funnier and slightly horrifying when you think about the other show Oz Christopher Meloni did and the kind of people he associated with in prison. You don't think Schillinger did that a few times?
One episode the was being cleaned of asbestos, causing Finn to start worrying.

Munch helpfully tells Finn that as a black man, he is much more likely to die from heart disease or diabetes before he gets cancer. Then the next time we see Finn, he's wearing a face mask. When Olivia was concerned about the little girl of a famous singer: Hey, Olivia, [little girl's name] had just called, asking for you. Fin and Lake are Mistaken for Gay when canvasing for suspects. Lake rolls with it by putting his hand on Fin's thigh with a big grin on his face while Fin is not amused.
In Popular, while cross referencing names from a check-in sheet for a hospital and names from an absentee list from a school, Olivia casually mentions that the one from the absentee list must be a forgery, and that she used to do it all the time, everyone does.
Elliot gives her a look, and she backpedals by saying that Elliot's kids are the exception, and that she's sure he's very intimidating all said with a smile on her face.
Elliot claims to be real scary afterwards. In an episode involving stolen embryos, Munch gets a moment of dark humour when he says he has a description of one of the victims and asks if he should put an APB on it, holding up a picture of an embryo.
While his condition is not portrayed as funny, it's hard not to laugh at the sheer incoherency of his word salad and the detectives' bewilderment. While they're talking to the psychiatrist, Ray-Ray interrupts from inside the other room with, "Hello? Uh, I can't find my head! Don't be a werewolf! Fin's description of the sociology behind being "On The Down-Low", and the others' reaction: It's different for black men. They go out, have sex with other men, then come home, have sex with their woman, and pretend they're straight.
Benson, Cragen, and Stabler stare at him, eyebrows raised Fin: Hey, don't look at me, I just know stuff! In the episode Authority when the accused advocates a protest which ends in a public pillow fight: If a couple hundred idiots wanna spend their afternoon having a pillow fight, let them.
What if I called you my boy? Fin grinning, arms spread wide: Then I'd be your boy, John! Related to the above Munch's parting words before they get outside. The beginning of the episode "Loophole" features a crook, high as balls on PCP and wreaking havoc while looking for a woman named "Barbie". Doubly hilarious when you realize it's Goldbergwrestling's answer to the One-Man Army. A fire extinguisher probably would feel like a love tap to someone who's taken steel chair shots for years, not to mention the opening scene looked like one of Goldberg's "days at the office" in WCW.
The pilot 's actually brilliantly laugh-out-loud funny altogether "Shut up, John! The absolute crowner of the pilot has to be Elliot in court.
He's trying to justify having arrested a flasher on hearsay a pretty shaky reason and the defense lawyer's having a field day Elliot's expression suggests that Chris Meloni was struggling not to burst out laughing, which is exactly what we all did.
And the jury, or at least the front rows, laugh their asses off. Hey, how'd it go? The jury came back that fast? He waved his flag at 'em before they had a chance From the same episode: Cragen is talking to Benson and Stabler in his office.
