Chung-chung to "Privacy First Mail Services," where Munch and Cassidy ask the guy behind the counter to look up the owner of Box 732: a "Bertrand Small" at 620 West 14th. Munch points out that the address is in the middle of the Hudson River. ["Munch, half the addresses on L & O are in the middle of one river or another." -- Sars] The mail guy shrugs and says that it's hard to keep track and the bill was always paid on time. Munch and Cassidy get all nasty. Because we all hate indifferent service people, don't we? Yes, we do! They tell the guy they're going to station an officer to wait until Mr. 732 shows up
and when he does, he gets his ass thrown in the interrogation room with Stabler and Benson. Oops, but the guy is just a courier. He says he was instructed to repackage the pills with a phony return address and send them to Nina "Nillith" Laszlo's agency
so Stabler and Benson stop by Cap'n Cragen's office to get the thugs in Narcotics in on the case. "We're now thinking a little intimidation's in order," says Stabler
so they send in a guy who looks like Governor Ventura, who marches into the Laszlo Agency screaming "THIS IS A BUST!" and pointing a gun and freaking out all the beautiful people. Well, some of them, anyway; others just think it's a Benetton ad and go about their business. The Governor puts cuffs on Nillith Laszlo. Stabler and Benson make a deal with Nillith: either she goes out the front door, where the press is waiting to get a photo of the "drug dealer to the stars," or else they can take her out the back door, if she's ready to talk about Tazmin. "Fine," says Nillith.
Stabler and Benson interview Nillith about the drug business. "It's not for profit, obviously," she says. "Speed keeps the girls in fighting trim. It's like vitamins," she rationalizes. She insists that she needed to do it to keep the models at the agency. Finally, she discusses Tazmin: "Carlo Parisi had a private Polaroid collection of himself with models," she says. "Doing what?" asks Benson. "Do I have to spell it out?" smirks Nillith. "Yes, you do," says Benson. Nillith sighs. "Jazmin said he made her 'Lewinsky' him," she says. Let's pretend we don't get that reference, okay? Let's go back to when the world was young and pretend that it means he made her give him neckties and stupid knickknacks. Anyway, the story is that Carlo then he refused to use her on the shoot and Tazmin got pretty pissed off, so she stole the Polaroid collection and told Nillith about it. Next thing Nillith knew, Tazmin was in the emergency room. Presumably this was bad news for benniesforbimbos.org.
