Episode Quotes

Richard Witt: They're flawed, no question. But they're decent. They're trying.
Amanda Rollins: How about we talk about Sam Dalton? He ever confess to you, tell you he assaulted three different women?
Richard Witt: The members of my group discuss lots of things.
Amanda Rollins: Well, all I care about are those things involving rape.
Olivia Benson: All three victims IDed Dalton. They remembered his face, his voice, and the stench of cheap cigars.
Rafael Barba: And they're all willing to testify?
Olivia Benson: Oh, more like excited. They can't wait to put this guy away.

Olivia Benson: More good news. The crime lab just confirmed that Dalton's DNA is a match to all three vics.
Rafael Barba: You're too kind.
Amanda Rollins: Really? Sexual predators praying about not trespassing against others?
Dominick Carisi Jr.: It's like a "Saturday Night Live" skit, but it's real.
Amanda Rollins: There's a lot of that going around these days.


  • Goof (errors made by characters, possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): At the crime scene, a patrol cop tells Rollins and Carisi that the rape occurred in the front seat of the victim's car. But at the hospital, Jessica tells Benson that it occurred in the back seat.
