Episode Quotes

Olivia Benson: [to Larry] Why would he call Sarah, a woman that he just raped, by your ex-wife's name?
Lawrence Hendricks Jr.: A mistake.
Olivia Benson: May I ask why you and your wife got divorced? Is it Is it something that your father did?
Lawrence Hendricks Jr.: It's none of your business.
Olivia Benson: No, but it's Sarah Morrissey's business. Your father raped her and God knows how many other women he assaulted, so I think it's all of their business. Look, I don't know if you're embarrassed or you're guilty or you're trying to protect your family name, but I'm pretty sure that Eric is trying to protect his grandfather. It's time that you told your son what kind of man your father really is and maybe that will convince him to tell the truth.
Olivia Benson: [to Sarah] Hi. I'm Lieutenant Benson. Can I help you?
Sarah Morrissey: Um, I'm not sure. I... I think I've been raped.
Olivia Benson: I'm so sorry. Can you tell me what happened?
Sarah Morrissey: I... I can't. I don't remember. Anything.
Dominick Carisi Jr.: Fin still at home cramming for the sergeant's exam?
Olivia Benson: Yep.
Dominick Carisi Jr.: I should go over there later, drill him.
Amanda Rollins: No, no. He says he has a sleep-learning system. He plays tapes with a speaker under his pillow.
Dominick Carisi Jr.: He's kidding, right?
Amanda Rollins: I don't know.
