Author's Note: This was originally written for the lawandorder100 Livejournal community. A "Calvin and Hobbes" strip inspired me, thus any proper apologies should go to Bill Watterson. The strip in question is on Page 62 in the "The Revenge of the Baby-Sat" book.

Timeline: Halfway throughout Season 18, if you wanted to be accurate.

------------------------------------------------------

Mike Cutter and Connie Rubirosa were moseying together in Central Park.

"Should I believe on ethics, anymore? As far as I'm concerned, the ends justify the means." Mike waved his hand about.

Connie cocked her head. "Jack might offer a second opinion."

He stepped in front of her. "If we get the proper end result, then he won't have any complaints. It's that simple."

"Is it?" She suddenly shoved him forcefully. He toppled onto a widespread mud puddle, arms flailing.

"Why'd you do that?!"

She stood before him, her arms akimbo. "You were in my way; now you're not. The ends justify the means."

He wiped sludge off his sleeves. "I didn't mean for everyone! Just me!"

"Gotcha."
