  • Quotes

    • Don Cragen: Ms. Marino must be here for the obligatory grieving-mother footage.
      Elliot Stabler: Nothing like a parent's worst nightmare for must-see TV.

    • Elliot Stabler (about Dan Kozlowski): He's a gambler?
      Laura: Compulsive. Like gambling on what time Kendall's going to need his diaper changed.

    • Judge Elizabeth Donnelly: According to the suit, you conspired with Detective Stabler to deprive Patty of his civil and constitutional rights.
      Casey Novak: No!
      Judge Elizabeth Donnelly: Pity, this guy sounds like a douche bag.

    • Runner: Elliot?
      Elliot Stabler: Yeah, can I help you?
      Runner: You've been served.
      Elliot Stabler: Can you believe this Casey?
      Runner: Casey Novak?
      Casey Novak: Yeah?
      Runner: Cool! You just saved me a trip downtown!

    • Judge Elizabeth Donnelly: Congratulations on keeping your record clean! I'm sure you'll agree that just means you haven't been caught.
      Judge: Elizabeth, you know better.

    • Judge Elizabeth Donnelly: Which means, Casey, you shouldn't have been playing cops and robbers with Elliot.

    • Elliot Stabler: You had a kinship analysis done?
      Olivia Benson: Yeah, it's for a cold case...
      Elliot Stabler: You're not working on any cold cases right now. What is it? (Benson pauses) Liv, whose DNA did you have tested?
      Olivia Benson: Mine. I have a brother.

    • (Watching Cindy Marino interview Laura.)
      Don Cragen: If we did that to Laura, we'd have every victim-rights group in the country picketing the station house.

    • Bernardo: I want a lawyer.
      Elliot Stabler: You need one. All this blow here, your parole officer hasn't been born yet.

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • This episode appears to be ripped from the headlines of the Melinda Duckett case. Duckett committed suicide after a Nancy Grace interview, in which she faced accusations that she knew more than she was reporting about the case of her missing two-year-old son.
