Security cameras across the globe. Munch'll never leave his house again.

–Elliot Stabler

Sutton: I oversaw the design and implementation of various interrogation plans. Why would I want to hide that?
Stabler: Nobody likes to be called a Torturer in public.

Huang: Sutton is a respected psychiatrist. I've heard her speak on combat related P.T.S.D.
Warner: Well, the problem is, she isn't treating it. She's causing it. So much for 2,500 years of "First do no harm".
Huang: That's kind of black-and-white.
Warner: I didn't know the Hippocratic oath was written in shades of grey.

Faith Sutton: Our country's at war. I have skills to contribute to that fight. You really want me not to use them?
Melinda Warner: You took an oath. You don't get to take a time-out because we're at war, because it's difficult to uphold. The oath was written for times like these.
