- Jack McCoy: My mother shoved a box of Crayolas in my pocket, a peanut butter and jelly sandwich in my lunch box, and sent me on my way.
- Serena Southerlyn: Sometimes I wonder how much of this is really for the kids' education and how much is just stroking their egos.
- Ed Green: (about legacy admissions): It's like affirmative action for white folks. Ain't that how George W. got into Yale, 'cause his daddy went there?

- Arthur Branch: And twice on Sundays.
- Lennie Briscoe: Hell hath no fury like a mother scorned.
- Lennie Briscoe: Those crime scene guys are highly overrated. The problem is, they all think they're cops.
