Quotes[edit | edit source]

Yes, I'm still here. Okay. No, no, no, no, I'm not hanging up. Computer company from hell, I've been on hold half an hour! I sent my kid's computer in to get fixed, and they lost it. No, you don't want me to come down there.

–Anita Van Buren


Policeman: Downstairs neighbor heard noises sometime after midnight, didn't think it was anything to worry about.
Lennie Briscoe: Or worth getting out of bed for.


Ken Taylor: That's not possible.
Ed Green: O.J. or no O.J., DNA doesn't lie, my man.
Anita Van Buren: Mr. Taylor, at this time would you like to make a statement?
Ken Taylor: It is not possible.
Anita Van Buren: I'll take that as a no.
Ken Taylor: Charles. Do something!
Lennie Briscoe: Yeah counselor, why don't you click your heels three times and say there's no place like home.



Lennie Briscoe: You see, whoever raped Cecilia used a condom, except some of his little guys got away from him. That's why we took your blood, Taylor.
Ken Taylor: That doesn't concern me one bit.
Anita Van Buren: The lab results are in. The DNA found at the scene matches the sample we took from the sheets.
Lennie Briscoe: Ooh! You should have been more careful when removing your party hat, Ken.
