Quotes[edit | edit source]

Rollins: We all realize that this sucks.
Carisi: Yeah, you know what sucks, Rollins? This is what sucks. A busload of nuns could say that Peter Stone was in Albuquerque at the time of this rape. And still, somewhere in the back of my mind, every time I see him I'm gonna wonder, "did he?" That's what sucks.

Olivia: [to Stone] So we spoke with Sarah.
Stone: Hm.
Olivia: She said that you raped her and her husband wants to press charges. Her story is credible, Peter.
Stone: What about my story? Because I know I didn't rape anyone.
Olivia: There were two people in that room, and I wasn't there.
Stone: And you said you believe me.
Olivia: I also believe her. Look, Peter, if this was anyone else we wouldn't be having this conversation.
Stone: So that's it? You're just gonna arrest me now?
Olivia: I have to. If you want to call a lawyer, we...
Stone: I am a lawyer.

Olivia: Peter, I'm sorry for everything that you went through. And I'm sorry if it seemed like I doubted you.
Stone: Don't be. Liv, that's why I work with you. You know, the thing is when all the noise was coming at me, there was a moment I doubted myself.
