"Quid Pro Quo" is the sixteenth episode of the third season of Blue Bloods.


Danny and Jamie's weekly basketball game with friends quickly turns nasty when a fight results in a law school friend of Jamie's being injured and Danny is forced to arrest his friend who pushed him. A previous arrest makes the whole incident more complicated and Jamie tries to talk his lawyer friend down from pressing charges.

Meanwhile, Erin enlists Danny to help when she is approached by a man who wants her help in getting justice for his daughter, Jenny, who was murdered years earlier. He believes his daughter's rich and powerful boyfriend was to blame, presenting them with all the evidence he has collected over the years, including a bloody necklace that didn't have enough DNA for a test back when the crime was committed.

Elsewhere, Frank is blindsided in an interview when a colleague's condemning quote is brought to light.
