Barba: [about Tara] It's a he said, she said, only he's a hero and she's a crazy woman who took a plane hostage.

Rollins: I used to think pilots were sexy. Silly me.

Barba: All the people who enabled Captain Carter should be in that cell with him.
Olivia: Yes, they should. But unfortunately, being sexist, uh... misogynistic pigs isn't a crime.
Barba: It should be.

Fin: Thank god for flight insurance.
Carisi: Come on, Fin, don't tell me you canceled your trip.
Fin: Look, if I have a choice between fishing and living...
Rollins: You know, it's bad enough we had to worry about passengers, now co-pilots? I'm with Fin.
Fin: Plus, this terrorist stuff happens in threes. So until the next two pop off, call me homeboy. I'm staying home.

Olivia: Tara was raped, Jeanne. She tried to get over it. She tried to do her job, but then she was put in the cockpit with the man who raped her. So yes, she lost control. She's gonna do prison time. Logan Carter may walk. My question to you is, can you live with yourself if that happens? Can you live with yourself if he does it again?
