Quotes[edit | edit source]

Nina Cassady: My sweet sixteen, dad wouldn't even loan me the Buick.
Ed Green.: He obviously didn't love you.
Nina Cassady: I told him as much at the time.

Anita Van Buren: Don't you ever talk out of turn in front of a suspect's lawyer again!
Nina Cassady: It just came out of my mouth.
Anita Van Buren: Then get a muzzle.

(Kenny Ellis has been found, sitting on a bed and holding a gun to his temple)
Ed Green: Kenny? My name is Ed, man. Can we talk for a minute?
Kenny Ellis: (strained) It's all good, bro...

Elizabeth Olivet: You don't have to leave a limb on the battlefield to be wounded. The psychological toll of war is no less debilitating.

Jack McCoy: Not everyone gets to be the victim here.

Kenny Ellis: Garcia'd still be alive if his vest had stopped that bullet. Doesn't that matter to you people?
Connie Rubirosa: You gunned down a man in front of his daughter.
Jack McCoy: Keep making these claims, Mr. Ellis. True or not, they make a compelling motive to commit murder.
Kenny Ellis: You people never would have made that son of a bitch account for what he did.
Jack McCoy: None of which justifies what you did.

Bill Whitney: A decision had to be made!
Jack McCoy: Who said that sacrificing Matthew Garcia's life was your decision to make?

Jack McCoy: Your conscience isn't clean. I hope five years will be long enough to make you face it.
Bill Whitney: I know what I did. I saved lives.
