Anita Van Buren: I said watch and learn. You just promised to close this case.
Nina Cassady: I was just offering my condolences.
Anita Van Buren: Watch...and learn!

Nina Cassady: How many lessons are there, exactly?
Ed Green: There are 740. Exactly.

McCoy: "An industry insider says prosecutors don't have a clue as to the actual motive in the case."
Rubirosa: You should, uh, skip down to the last paragraph.
McCoy: "With such rocky evidence, we only hope the prosecution isn't bulldogging the Smolka-Sweet family for their lifestyle and non-traditional parenting. What's worse, we ask, a short stay alone in mom's car or nine years of neglect, which is how long it's been since Jack McCoy...has spoken to his only daughter."
Rubirosa: They're trying to poison the jury pool. It's a very low blow.

McCoy: See you in court.
Adam Stein: Yeah, promises, promises. Hey, do you like sangria?
Rubirosa: You're tie? Really, really stupid.
