This quote from Orbach leads me to wonder where Orbach ended and his character began, so easily could it have come from Lenny's mouth. When asked whether he personally thought criminals should be read their Miranda rights, Orbach replied:
I think they should be read their Carmen Miranda rights: "You have the right to wear a big hat with fruit on it. You have the right to say 'chick-a-boom, chick-a-boom.' "
