Quotes[edit | edit source]

Kayla: I'm sorry, I just... this is a waste of everybody's time.
Benson: 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.
Benson: 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.
Benson: I think maybe you were, Kayla.

Tutuola: The girl gets in your car, she's a hot mess, and you just keep driving?
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?

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.

–Peter Stone talks Kayla Morgan to testify

Rollins: Oh, my feet have not hurt this bad since I waited tables.
Benson: 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.
Benson: 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.
Benson: Good for you.
