Law And Order: CI expands my vocabulary....

There are spoilers below, so if you don't want to know about Law and Order: CI, don't read.

So, it gets to the end of the show tonight and the two cops have been trying to track down this woman's daughter and they figure out that the daughter doesn't exist.

So, they go to confront the woman at her boyfriend's garage. He's been killing homeless people to raise money for the daughter that doesn't exist.

See, the woman had been pregnant in the early 70s, but she had never had the baby. Now she had dementia and talked about this baby like it was alive and lived in upstate New York. Vincent D'Onfrio knocks something over toward the woman and she clutches her stomach. He points at her, "You never had that baby. It's still inside you! It died and now it's calcified in there..."

Then, the female detective says in a way that is obviously supposed to explain to the audience what's going on in a perfect succinct way, "Oh, a stone baby!"

What? Is this a common term I'm not familiar with? Were there people at home going, Oh man, I should have guessed, a stone baby. It was so obvious.

Anyway, it's my new favorite phrase of the moment.

Oh, and when the woman's boyfriend asks her why she never told him she says, "I didn't want you to know that I was a coffin."

Have you got a stone baby in there?

Edit:

I just made the mistake of typing "stone baby" into google and clicking on the first link. Eeeeeeeew...
