In the episode “Signature,” Erica Christensen guest stars as an FBI agent who partners with Olivia to find a serial killer who rapes, tortures, and kills women. Despite the heavy subject matter, there is a snippet of dialogue so funny, I often think of it.
Benson and Cooper go to a gentleman’s club looking for Lavender, a potential suspect. They ask a rather rotund, dapper African-American proprietor if he is Lavender. So wounded, the man pipes back, “It’s LE-vander, LE-vander.”
