  • Captain Cragen: [to Stabler] How many times do you think you can break the rules and get away with it?

  • Fin: [about Jenny Rogers' prescription] She's either selling, or she's in real bad shape. 80 mgs every six hours? That's enough to numb a moose.

  • Jenny: You arrested Kevin?
  • Benson: He'll be in a treatment program. He's getting the help he needs, and you can live your life without being afraid.
  • Jenny: What life? You took my son away. What have I got to live for now?

  • Jenny: Do you have children?
  • Stabler: Yes.
  • Jenny: What would you do if one of them got into trouble? You'd help them.

Background information and notes

  • In this episode, Kathy Stabler states that Kathleen is 17 years old.
  • When Jenny Rogers is on the stand after the defense objects saying it was a leading question about a man coming down the stairs, the prosecutor says that Jenny Rogers testified that she heard a man and a woman arguing and then they found the woman dead so it must be the woman coming down the stairs. What Jenny Rogers had said on the stand was that she heard people arguing, she didn't say man or woman.
