Ever Happen No?

In Ever Happen No? four or five cliched or curious Americanisms are repeated:"I'm out of here""Why d'ya think your marriage just died on ya?"

The effect is to produce a slightly hypnotic trance-like effect as something that is very familiar is repeated like the chorus of a song. NYPD Blue is a very fast paced original programme; here it is slowed down and turned into a mantra. Next using a big soundtrack consisting of a rock audience clapping, it is as if these sections of NYPD Blue are being put on stage themselves in some big stadium. The audience seem to be just screaming and clapping as each NYPD Blue phrase comes up live on stage.
