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.
Olivia Benson: [having discovered Beth battering her rapist] I gotta tell you, Captain, I am a loss for words. How did we get here?
Captain Beth Williams: When I figured out it was him, I had to handle Mickey my way; make him look me in the eye, make him suffer. But it's over. I'm good now.
Olivia Benson: Well, I'm not. It's not your decision whether or not we prosecute. So you wanna tell me what really happened?
Captain Beth Williams: He was so drunk; angry. I tried to calm him down. He started getting physical, and I turned to walk away.
Olivia Benson: And he hit you?
Captain Beth Williams: Yeah. Mickey and I, we've been going in different directions for years. His world kept getting smaller and my world kept getting bigger.
Olivia Benson: He obviously has a lot of pent-up anger. Look, I gotta tell you. You've put me in a very difficult position. You've lost all credibility as a witness, and not to mention what you just did in there is a crime.
Captain Beth Williams: He deserved it.
Olivia Benson: I understand that. But the D.A.'s office, not a big fan of vigilante justice.
Captain Beth Williams: Are you gonna charge me with a crime?
Olivia Benson: I don't know. If you start to cooperate and help us convict Mickey, I will talk to the D.A. and see if we can help you out. We're arraigning Mickey tomorrow morning. I would like you to be there.
Olivia Benson: So, Captain Williams IDed Gary Cook. Let's charge him.
Amanda Rollins: Love to, trust me, but we got a problem.
Dominick Carisi Jr.: Two problems, actually. Both are big.
Olivia Benson: Awesome. Who wants to go first?
Amanda Rollins: Well, turns out that Gary Cook's grandma lives at the St. James Assisted Living Facility. And I... I talked to two witnesses that put him there. They have a sign-in sheet.
Odafin Tutuola: His grandma? You're kidding.
Amanda Rollins: No. And look at the sign-in time.
Olivia Benson: 4:50 a.m. So where is this?
Amanda Rollins: It's in Yonkers. It's at the... the corner of Ashburton Avenue and North Broadway.
Olivia Benson: So Captain Williams was assaulted between 4:30 and 5:00.
Amanda Rollins: At 207th Street.
Odafin Tutuola: It takes twenty minutes to get to that part of Yonkers in a car or train.
Olivia Benson: What's the other problem?
Dominick Carisi Jr.: This. This is surveillance footage from an auto glass shop on 203rd Street the night of the assault. Now, there's Beth, all right? She's walking out of the fight club warehouse.
Olivia Benson: Right, and there's Gary Cook coming in.
Dominick Carisi Jr.: Right, right, right, and he starts to follow her.
Olivia Benson: Right, which syncs up with Captain Williams' story. Okay, she's about to shove him, right?
Dominick Carisi Jr.: No. Not exactly. He shakes her hand. He walks the other way, just like he said.
Odafin Tutuola: Cook's telling the truth.
Olivia Benson: Which means that Captain Williams isn't.


  • 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.
