Patrick: (to Olivia) He is my son. He is 22 years old. He graduated suma cum laude from Dartmouth, he has a six figure job and you want to destroy his life because he had sex with some drunk girl?
Olivia: Patrick, what were you thinking?
Patrick: That I have to protect my son, no matter what, no matter how.
Barba: (to Olivia) He lied to save your ass. In my world, that gets you disbarred.
Olivia: Yeah, in my world, it gets you a promotion.
Patrick (to Olivia): I went to bat for you!
Olivia: And the truth is, I wish you hadn't. I wish you'd just told the truth.
