Amanda: Lieutenant. We know how this works. And so does Sir Toby. He's so used to being above the law that he didn't bother to remove the footage of the other victims.
Odafin: Cause he knows they're not gonna talk.
Olivia: And he may have just overplayed his hand.

Olivia: I heard you stepped down.
Elana: It was my decision. The divorce wasn't, but with two kids in college it was either private practice or public bankruptcy.
