- 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.

- Rubirosa: You're tie? Really, really stupid.
