I mean, I'm all for stopping animal smuggling and shit. But weren't these the guys who helped raped kids and murdered prostitutes and shit?

lieutenant halfabeef - 2009-08-15

What victims are more special than helpless animals?

Xenocide - 2009-08-16

SVU is saving the monkey rape episode for next season. It will introduce the new Monkey Rape task force, which will be receiving a spinoff.

Sundry - 2009-08-16

The animal smuggler was a rapist that later tortured and killed his victims by locking them with wild animals.

The SVU cops had to prove he had wild animals so that they could build a case against him.

Caminante Nocturno - 2009-08-16

Sundry is giving out incorrect information about SVU.

Do not trust the SVU information given out by Sundry.

Personally, I'm hoping for the L&O:Rape Police to take it into outer space.

Colonel Cowlung - 2009-08-15

A shark-jumping for the 21st century

The Townleybomb - 2009-08-16

In the 21st century, we call that "putting the monkey in the basketball". THIS IS THE FUTURE, LET'S START ACTING LIKE IT. HEAD IN THE GAME, PEOPLE.

Binro the Heretic - 2009-08-16

No, "Jumping the Shark" means the so has become so ridiculously removed from its original plot that it can't possibly go on anymore. This is something far more sinister.

I propose that "Putting the Monkey in the Basketball" is the phrase that should be used when a show displays a complete and utter lack of respect for its audience.

garcet71283 - 2009-08-16

Shall we put "Putting the Monkey in the Basketball" to a vote?

Big Beef Burritos Supreme - 2009-08-16

Binro: it's like you're talking about the second or third season of pretty much everything.

This is why good shows get axed early; growing fat and old and increasingly irrelevant is not rock 'n roll.

FABIO - 2009-08-16

Shows that start out great burn out early.

Overall great shows that last a long time have a rocky start but eventually develop into greatness (Star Trek TNG, Beavis & Butthead).

Bort - 2010-02-14

FABIO: that phenomenon is formally known as "growing the beard"; it gets its name from TNG.

Syd Midnight - 2013-03-15

It worked for Cisco, too.

Billie_Joe_Buttfuck - 2009-08-15

"The monkey is in the basketball" deserves to have a double meaning.

Cleaner82 - 2009-08-15

Do you have any idea what it could mean Cooper?

Not a clue, but I know it's important.

Muddy Mae Suggins - 2009-08-16

Sometimes my arms bend back

dead_cat - 2009-12-08

Successfully stuffing your testicles (no dick involved) up another person's ass.

kamlem - 2009-08-15

Super Monkey Ball!!!

Hooker - 2009-08-16

I'm sorry, I should have read the comments first. My stars are really for you.

Caminante Nocturno - 2009-08-15

This is my favorite non-Internet episode of SVU.

Document - 2009-08-16

I prefer the racism episodes. Because trying to crowbar the KKK or skinheads into a rape plot just works out marvelously every time.

Cleaner82 - 2009-08-16

Did they do a Grand Theft Auto episode where some kids run down hookers for 'points'? I want to say they did.

Caminante Nocturno - 2009-08-16

Yes, they did.

dead_cat - 2009-08-16

I see the L&O writers have finally had it with CSI being the most specialest broken-headed series-family on television. Good for them.

Xenocide - 2009-08-16

Ha ha, network TV is so worthless.

Also, I love the evil Asian guy's "SOON TO BE SIXTEEN!" line. He just has to remind everyone how evil he is in case they forgot. I bet there was a subplot about him jerking off to videos of things going extinct.

revdrew - 2009-08-16

He is supposedly going to be making them into CHOPSTICKS of all things. I was going to guess it would be some sort of medicine that makes men more virile, but this is even better.

dead_cat - 2009-12-08

I am disappointed that the authors didn't give him a mustache to twirl while he laughed.

Aoi - 2009-08-16

Ha ha, oh wow. I sat there stone-faced through the whole clip, until the monkey came out and hugged the lieutenant-guy. Which is when I let loose a wheezing laugh from an awe-stricken smile.

I mean, I read the description, thought to myself "L&O: SVU doing something retarded? Shocking.", but actually seeing it...

Pillager - 2009-08-16

Very moving performance.

That monkey's going places.

Binro the Heretic - 2009-08-16

Into a football?

dead_cat - 2009-12-08

Into a chopstick factory.

Severian - 2009-08-16

Someone wrote that whole episode on a drunken bet about using that line.

Big Beef Burritos Supreme - 2009-08-16


Hooker - 2009-08-16

That monkey was totally in that basketball.

StanleyPain - 2009-08-16

This is one of the few L&O:SVU episodes I saw when it actually aired and, man, it was mindblowing. Easily the weirdest episode next to that one with Robin Williams.

Syd Midnight - 2009-08-16

All that build-up was worth it for the basketball gibbon

Maggot Brain - 2009-08-16

Donald Cragen is adorable.

seriouslyuguys - 2009-08-16

What really put this over the top for me was that the monkey has to be in the basketball because it's too valuable to be heavily sedated according to the cops. So this guy goes to all the trouble of sneaking a live monkey through customs in a basketball only to have the recipient immediately imply that he plans to kill it.

Doctor Arcane - 2009-08-16

Gibbons are just like lobsters.

Cleaner82 - 2009-08-16

I didn't smuggle this motherfucking monkey across the world in a basketball just so you could bash its head in with a fucking rock!

Bort - 2009-08-16

This episode was written by someone who has taken only one English class ever, and can only say "the monkey is in the basketball" and "the girl is at the library".


Ersatz - 2009-08-16

Norman's just trying to raise some extra money for Carcetti's gubernatorial re-election campaign.

Muddy Mae Suggins - 2009-08-16

Gibbons are lesser apes.

Man Who Fights Like Woman - 2009-08-19

I had to see it to believe it.

SRP - 2009-08-20

The monkey is in the basketball! *points to schlong*

Camonk - 2010-06-20

Det. Munch was on this for some time, after being transferred over from Baltimore's Homicide: Life on the Streets (maybe he still is, I don't know). Lately, he was mentioned by name, as part of the NYPD's SVU, on Luther, an excellent BBC show.

Guy gets around, that's what I'm trying to say.

Bort - 2012-02-19

The original clip is down, but I can't find a good replacement. This was from season 10, episode 7 ("Wildlife"), around the 34:13 mark. If you're doing Hulu Plus, you can view it directly:

And here's the Short And Sweet version (it loses something by being too Short and Sweet):
