Sarah Morrissey: Two samples? Are you saying that two men raped me? This just keeps getting worse.

  • Goof (errors made by characters, possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): While questioning Eric, the defendant's grandson, Barba asks whether Eric's grandfather is aware that it is the year 2016, yet the scene takes place on January 30, meaning that it is actually 2017. This dialog and a subsequent reference to Pokemon Go imply that this scene was filmed in 2016, even though it is supposed to take place in 2017.


  • Sarah Clarke, Bob Gunton and Raphael Sbarge were all cast members of "24".
