When a man is found beaten half to death in the park, Briscoe and Curtis discover that his attackers were avenging their mentally-ill sister, whom they believed the man had raped. This proves to be false, as it turns out the girl had sex with another mental patient, but then the detectives discover that the assault victim had committed an even more heinous crime.

There was no advantage taken in the Blue Room. It was both mutual and sensual. I didn't tell that part to my spiritual adviser.

–Leslie Russo about her supposed rape.

I did. I did. It was God that didn't take care of her. God took Wendy and John. God took our baby. God owed me a grandchild, Mr. McCoy. God owed me.

–Greta Singer reveals her narcissism

Harry Singer: With all that's happened...what good will this do?
Jack McCoy: Mr. Singer, your wife and Mr. Harding plunged into a moral quagmire that the law can only begin to address. Maybe they'll both drown in it.
