(looking at Harold Garrett's den)
Robert Goren: So he puts the needle down, sits down here, puts his headphones on, listens to Frank, drinks himself to sleep...
Elise Garrett: (smiles) Harold to a T.

Harold Garrett: I heard a rumor about a deal with the D.A. What did you tell them?
Elise Garrett: Don't touch him! (hurries Ethan up the stairs)
Harold Garrett: Look at me when I'm talking to you! I'm your father! (Elise and Ethan have walked away) Traitor! You Iago! IAGO!

It's not enough to do good. You gotta be seen doing good.

–Arthur Branch

Harold Garrett: I presided over police brutality trials in the '90s. It'd be quite a feather in somebody's cap to knock me down.
Robert Goren: (writing down notes) Grandiosity, paranoid delusions, persecution complex...
Harold Garrett: Two can play at that game, Detective. I'm putting you all on notice. I will defend myself quite vigorously.

(Goren is taunting Garrett)
Robert Goren: Get her drunk, that's even better! She won't remember how young and strong Ethan felt. Won't remember how he made her feel good-
Harold Garrett: I made her feel good! She didn't want a boy, she wanted a man and that's what she got, and she loved it! Oh he heard me! He heard me all the way from his room! The old man showed him how it's done!
(Awkward silence. Garrett realizes that everyone in the room has heard him and is staring at him)
Harold Garrett: I did nothing to hurt her. I did not hurt her!
Ron Carver: I think we're ready for trial. Nice work, Detective.
