Episode Quotes

Olivia Benson: Lucas has a right to counsel, but he's already confessed to my detectives.
Reverend Gary Langham: There is nothing to confess to.
Dominick Carisi Jr.: Excuse me?
Reverend Gary Langham: Lucas had curative intercourse with Ann Davenport. It's his right under the First Amendment.
Odafin Tutuola: His right?
Reverend Gary Langham: It's an expression of his and Ann's religious beliefs.
Olivia Benson: Okay.
Odafin Tutuola: Look, I'm no preacher, but I know the guy in the sky isn't down with rape.
Olivia Benson: Yeah, well, neither is the State of New York. And regardless of his religious beliefs, Lucas is guilty of sexual assault, so he won't be going anywhere.
Reverend Gary Langham: Well, then I will see you in court.
Odafin Tutuola: How do you two know each other?
Lydia Banks: Um, well, we grew up together. I, um... I got out of Indiana when I turned sixteen. We did stay in touch, but tonight's the first time I've seen her since I moved to New York.
Odafin Tutuola: Okay. So what'd you guys do tonight?
Lydia Banks: Um... well, we had a drink. It was just a soda at the... at the bar. Um... and then we went back to her room. Um... and then the chaperone knocked on the door, said it was 11:00; it's lights out. And Ann, she snuck me her room key so that I could come back and we could... we could hang out.
Odafin Tutuola: How much later?
Lydia Banks: It was, like, maybe a half hour later. And, you know, I thought everyone would be asleep, so I went in and Ann was crying. And she said that she had been raped.
Odafin Tutuola: She used that word?
Lydia Banks: Basically. I mean, she said "He made me. My virtue is gone." What does that sound like to you?
Paul Davenport: We're taking our daughter home. We need to deal with this our way.
Olivia Benson: I... I understand that, sir. But we are in the middle of a criminal investigation and we would very much appreciate your cooperation.
Cheryl Davenport: It's the police, Paul. She needs to stay, right?
Olivia Benson: Yes, that would be helpful.
Cheryl Davenport: I'm just worried about Ann. Regardless of why this happened, she was traumatized. I wanna make sure she's safe.
Amanda Rollins: So do we.
