Carisi (to Tommy): You cheated on my pregnant sister!

Tommy: I don't want to make a big deal out of this, okay?
Amaro: So you're just going to pretend that nothing happened? Go back to your parole officer next week and hope that she doesn't pull a gun on you?

Carisi (about Rollins): She's kind of big on tough love, isn't she?
Amaro: Look, her sister played her so many times, she taught herself to expect the worst from family.

Donna Marshall: I gave up my life, my marriage for this job and then Tommy Sullivan comes waltzing in all buzzy, talking about his pregnant girlfriend and his wonderful new life.
Olivia: That doesn't give you the right to do what you did to him.
Donna Marshall: I tried to help him! I tried to help all of them! And you know what they do? They take your hand and they drag you down to their level. They don't want to change. They will never change.
