A Quote from Law and
Order SVU episode "Hysteria"
Munch: Miss Webber was told to disrobe, put her feet up in stirrups,
and try to picture David Hasselhoff on Baywatch.
Defense Attorney: Objection! Your honour, this witness is not qualified to testify
on the treatment for hysteria.
Munch: Actually, sir, I am. Up until 1952, hysteria was one of the most
commonly diagnosed illnesses among women. The medical
treatment was hysterical peroxism.
Court Reporter: Could the witness spell that?
Defense: Objection! Would it surprise you to learn that, historically,
the onus fell upon physicians to bring about the relief of these ladies' symptoms?
Prosecution: Your honour,
please instruct counsel to withold his questions until cross.
Munch: I don't mind, your honour.
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 1890s, when the vibrator was invented to speed things along.
Prosecution and Defense:
(in unison) Objection!
Prosecution: Detective, is this practice
currently against the law?
Munch: Yes. And so is videotaping it. -Hysteria

Well, we'll know if it's Dad's soon enough. When do
we get the products of conception for testing?
We don't. They're keeping it.
Still, I've never had a keeper with a stranger rape
John, Olivia's mom was raped by a stranger.
