  • Quotes

    • Olivia Benson: Fidelia, this is a baby we're talking about, it's not an accessory, it's not a bracelet or a pair of earrings or a slamming pair of jeans. This is a living breathing human being you're bringing onto this earth.
      Fidelia Vidal: You think I don't know that?
      Olivia Benson: If you did you'd be petrified about your future. Do you know the odds of a teen mom finishing high school? Forget college, or any other dream you might have. Life as you know it is over. There's no going to the mall or hanging out with your friends. I mean you might see them but it'll probably be in line waiting for food stamps, or all of you going to the doctor trying to get an appointment at the free clinic.
      Fidelia Vidal: Daddy, make her be quiet.
      Gordon Vidal: That's enough, detective.
      Olivia Benson: Do you know the health risks to babies of teen moms? Dyslexia, retardation, um, increased risks of blindness, cerebral palsy.
      Fidelia Vidal: Daddy!
      Gordon Vidal: Don't you blame my daughter. She's just a child.
      Olivia Benson: That is my point exactly.

    • Olivia: Josh suffered from schizophrenia, you're not worried that your baby might be predisposed to it?
      Tina Bernardi: No way… what does predisposed mean?

    • Elliot Stabler: (watching Munch act like a crazy homeless man) Gotta admit, he does crazy good.
      Fin Tutuola: What are you talking about? It's the same crap he spouts every day, just louder.

    • Fidelia: So what's your story?
      Olivia Benson: Excuse me?
      Fidelia: You have kids? You're pretty old.
      Olivia Benson: I'm here to talk about you.
      Fidelia: I bet you're jealous. Old chicks are totally jealous of me. Is that it? Did you wait too long? Tick-tock…

    • Elliot Stabler: What's on the menu tonight?
      Melinda Warner: Barbecue.

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • Dizzier: (to Fin and Stabler) What are you looking for, a copy of "I Shot The Sheriff"?
      "I Shot The Sheriff" is a 1973 song written by Bob Marley. It was released by The Wailers.

    • M.E. Warner: Follow the bloody brick road.
      This is a play on "Follow The Yellow Brick Road," a song performed by Judy Garland in the 1939 film, The Wizard Of Oz.

    • This episode is ripped from the headlines of the Gloucester High School pregnancy pact that unraveled in June 2008, where 17 teenage girls made a pact to get pregnant together and raise their babies together, and the MySpace hoax suicide that broke out in 2005 when Megan Meier hanged herself after Lori Drew, mother of Megan's rival, Sarah Drew, posed as a teenage boy on MySpace and sent Megan emails saying she was fat, a slut, and that the world would be better off without her.

    • The email site used in this episode was the same email site used in the Law & Order episode "Avatar".
