Kayla Morgan: I'm sorry, I just... this is a waste of everybody's time.
Olivia: I know that this is difficult, and we're almost done, I promise, but if you could just give me one more minute.
Rollins: You remember how your shirt got ripped?
Kayla: I had a lot to drink.
Olivia: Where?
Kayla: I don't know. It's fuzzy.
Rollins: And that is completely normal. Victims don't remember all the details of their assault.
Kayla: Look, I'm not a victim.
Olivia: I think maybe you were, Kayla.

Fin: The girl gets in your car, she's a hot mess, and you just keep driving?
Michael Boykin: I barely looked at her. I was on the phone with my wife the entire ride.
Carisi: You know we hate it when you guys do that, right?

Stone: I can't imagine how difficult this is, Kayla. My sister was murdered by the people I was prosecuting. I have to wake up every morning and convince myself that it wasn't my fault, and the only way I can do that is if I believe I can stop it from happening to somebody else.

Rollins: Oh, my feet have not hurt this bad since I waited tables.
Olivia: I had no idea. When did you wait tables?
Rollins: Oh, I was 16. Aunt Betty's Cabin. Best chicken-fried steak you've ever had. You know, truth be told, none of this culinary grab-ass surprises me.
Olivia: You were assaulted.
Rollins: Well, one of my regulars wanted a little extra sugar with his coffee. Instead, he ended up with a raw steak on his eye.
Olivia: Good for you.
