The prayer that Stabler recited in the church with Reverend Curtis is called the Act of Contrition.
Father Denis: Sometimes the very devout hold themselves accountable for sins they haven't committed.
Trent Labette: The reverend is innocent. He would never commit sins of lust and deviance.
Olivia Benson: Then why does he keep a love nest?
Reverend Curtis: You and I live in different worlds. In my world, God is infallible. In yours, you worship science.
Elliot Stabler: No, I turn to science for some answers and God for others.
Elliot Stabler: No telling what unnatural transactions our forensic accountant will uncover.
Olivia Benson: That's a subpoena, not a party invitation. So give us the records or go to jail for contempt.
Dr. Melinda Warner: No clothes, no ID, no eyes.
Olivia Benson: Who has 10 kids nowadays?
Elliot Stabler: Not even Catholics.
Elliot Stabler (into his cellphone): I'm sorry, there's nothing I can do about it. (listens) Yeah? Bye. (hangs up)
Olivia Benson: Something wrong?
Elliot Stabler: Kathy. We were supposed to have a drink tonight. (pauses) I'm moving back home.
Olivia Benson: When?
Elliot Stabler: We haven't decided, that's why we were gonna have a drink.
Elliot Stabler: (about Reverend Curtis) If he takes the Bible so seriously, what's he doing having an affair with a male prostitute?
Dr. George Huang: Because he suppressed his sexual desires and channeled them into having as many children as he could. But the problem with repressed desires is that they eventually explode.
Elliot Stabler: Someone killed our John Doe to send a message?
Dr. Melinda Warner: Well, if it was, 'Shut up and spread 'em,' he got it loud and clear.
