Episode Quotes

Captain Beth Williams: I can't believe this happened. The timing is terrible.
Olivia Benson: What do you mean?
Captain Beth Williams: I'm supposed to start a press tour for the Army. Talking about courage, valor, bravery. I can't be here saying I got raped.
Captain Beth Williams: Good afternoon. As you know, Michael Reid was just indicted for rape. I instructed the court to not refer to the victim as Jane Doe. I feel it is my duty to step forward, to tell the world the truth. My name is Captain Beth Williams. On January 8th, I was raped. This does not lessen my ability or worth as a soldier. It will not define me. It will not break me. I'm not ashamed of what happened. I stand here with one mission only: to encourage other survivors of sexual assault to do the same. There is only honor in being a survivor.
Captain Beth Williams: A soldier doesn't need closure, Detective, a soldier needs a mission.


  • Goof (miscellaneous): In the opening scene, Capt Williams is wearing the ribbon of the Silver Star. In the closing scene that ribbon is missing from her uniform.
  • Goof (continuity error): When Captain Williams is seen in the first few minutes, it's mentioned that she was awarded the "Silver Star". It is seen on her uniform in the appropriate position. She wears the Silver Star, Army Commendation, and Army Achievement ribbons in the top row. In the closing scenes, the Silver Star is gone. She is only wearing the Commendation and Aceivement ribbons in the top row.


  • Near episode's end, Benson mentions her extensive work helping rape victims. Mariska Hargitay actually is a trained rape crisis counselor; she was inspired to pursue her certification, and founded the Joyful Heart Foundation in 2004, after she began receiving mail from fans disclosing, many for the first time, that they were survivors of sexual assault and/or abuse.
  • When Fin tells Captain Williams that he was also a Ranger, she says "sua sponte". Latin for "of [one's] own accord", the phrase is the Rangers' motto, and refers to their ability to accomplish tasks with little to no prompting.
  • A rape suspect uses the online handle "Superman78". 1978 is the year the first Christopher Reeve "Superman" film was released.
