Quotes[edit | edit source]
|“||Did I miss an episode of "Girls"? Remind me what a rainbow party is.||”|
- Schwartz: She's... got a lifestyle website. She reviews holistic treatments, herbal therapies. She's the queen bee of the Tribeca moms.
- Benson: Well, there's one in every hive.
- Carisi: I didn't know you had a kid, Counselor.
- Heller: Don't remind me. A kid, a cat and a client at 5:00, so let's get this over with.
|“||You're dumber than your father, you know that?||”|
–Arlene Heller after Larry Heller's cell phone is found after he claimed he lost it
- Benson: So some images ended up on porn sites. Can we stop this from spreading?
- Tutuola: You know how it goes, Liv. Once you put it out there, you can't pull it back.
- Amaro: Well, the legit sites have taken 'em down but they've gone viral. Rollins and Carisi are retrieving the last of the phones. TARU should be able to find out which student linked 'em.
- Benson: Then what? Arrest them? They're 15 years old.
- Tutuola: And white. And rich. It's not gonna happen.
- Amaro: ...
- Tutuola: We all know it's true.
- Benson: You're encouraging other parents. You are endangering the health of every child in this city.
- Malko: So this is personal? Because your son took ill, Barba you and you are coming after me?
- Barba: No, this has nothing to do with Sergeant Benson's son. You are openly flouting the law. This is reckless endangerment, and we will stop you.

Background information and notes[edit | edit source]
- The episode is in large part based on the MMR vaccine controversy, which involved the unsubstantiated belief that there is a link between the MMR vaccine and autism. Trudy Malko is based on Jenny McCarthy, even bearing a physical resemblance, a former Playboy model who became infamous for promoting these ideas.
- In response to the information about a rainbow party, Rollins said she would never have kids. However, she ends up having two: Jesse and Billie.
