- Pam James: [to Barba] You attack the integrity of my office, you're in for the fight of your life.
- Michael Provo: [to Pam James] You'd really sell me out, Pam? After everything I've done for you? You'd still be putting your tits on the table for traffic court judges if it wasn't for me!
- Barba: [about Jessie Sturgis after she's arraigned for murder] We're in someone else's courthouse and it's not our case. She's their defendant.
- Olivia: I know, but she's also our victim.
- Barba: Ms. James, what brings you to town?
- Pam James: I was heading to the governor's fundraiser when I heard that your SVU minions arrested Mr. Provo in Islip.
- Barba: Yeah, they said traffic was terrible coming back.
- Amaro: [to Carol McEwan about Michael Provo] See, we know Provo's M.O. He was having a relationship with you while your husband was away.
- Carol McEwan: You can't prove that.
- Olivia: Carol, it's what he does. He takes advantage of women who are already in trouble.
- Carol McEwan: I love my husband.
- Nick: Did Provo threaten to tell Eddie about your affair?
- Carol McEwan: I'm Eddie's whole world. If he finds out, he'll kill me, then he'll kill himself.
- Olivia: And we don't want to have to tell him, but there's an innocent woman who's looking at 25 to life.
- Carol McEwan: So you're gonna blackmail me into doing what's right? Who's taking advantage of who now?
- Olivia: Jessie, we had to withdraw charges.
- Jessie Sturgis: What? But he raped me. He beat me. He left me bleeding in the street.
- Olivia: Barba had to make a deal to get you out right away. That was... that was the priority.
- Jessie Sturgis: And the rape never happened?
- Olivia: Legally, no. Jessie, take Matthew home. You won.
- Amaro: [about Jessie] Raped, put in jail, her kid taken away. I don't know how she held it together.
- Olivia: She did it for her son.
