Rollins: [to Carisi] You know I'm human, right? And human people have sex. Sometimes with people they love and sometimes with people they don't even know.

Barba: The Internet has made the world a smaller place, but some people still get lost in it.

Carisi: Well, if it's the same Katy Miller, then she's a social media celebrity; Instagram, YouTube, Snap. She's got a couple of hundred thousand followers.
Fin: Thank you, Kim Kardashian.
Carisi: Yeah, sure, make mock, but these influencers are the voice of Gen Z.
Fin: And they're getting rich doing it. Don't people know porn's free these days?

Olivia: [about Heather] She instigated a rape, Rafael.
Barba: Out of boredom. She had no motive.
Olivia: How is stupidity a defense?

Heather Parcell: [about Katy Miller] It's not fair! She gets paid to take a shower and I have to change Mama's poop bag? She deserves what she got! It's not fair.
