      • Rey Curtis: Can you describe her?
        Eyewitness: Yes, Ann Taylor knock off pants suit, wannabe Prada pumps and a leatherette copy of a Coach portfolio bag in black. Very tacky!
        Rey Curtis: What did she look like?

      • (After the presumed target of a shooting walks away scot-free.)
        Rey Curtis: Sounds to me like a hit.
        Lennie Briscoe: And a miss.

      • Lennie Briscoe: (to pretzel vendor) Relax, we're not the pretzel police.

      • (Discussing Lindsay Carson.)
        Adam Schiff: The whole world says her father's a murderer, one guy tells her he's sick. She heard what she wanted to hear.
        Jamie Ross: We all do.
        Jack McCoy: Yeah, but we don't all pay forty thousand dollars to hear it.

      • Jamie Ross: We say she's cold-blooded, they say she was in a trance. Tomato, tom-ah-to.

      • Jamie Ross: Worley? Isn't he the guy who crushed his girlfriend with a car?
        Rey Curtis: Yeah, '54 Studebaker. Mayer was the hired gun who was supposed to convince the jury that he's crazy.
        Lennie Briscoe: I'm convinced. The guy purposely messed up a vintage automobile.
        Anita van Buren: So Mayer was shot by an antique car collector?

      • Receptionist: You gotta tell me what this is about.
        Rey Curtis: A homicide.
        Receptionist: Really? My friends are gonna die!

      • Maitre d': She fancied herself a wine expert. She ordered the "Cabaret" Sauvignon.

      • Jack McCoy: Gentlemen, the question remains: at the time of the murder, did she appreciate the consequences of her actions?
        Dr. Emil Skoda: Yes.
        Dr. Leon Mayer: No.
        Jamie Ross: Terrific.

      • (About the dissociative state defense.)
        Dr. Emil Skoda: If that's all it takes to duck a murder charge, we're all out of business.
