- Lennie Briscoe: Who's she, the new community affairs liaison?
- Anita Van Buren: No. What do you have?
- Rey Curtis: Come on, L.T. What's up?
- Anita Van Buren: Better you hear it from me. She's my lawyer. I was up for captain. One Police Plaza passed me over.
- Lennie Briscoe: You're suing the department?
- Anita Van Buren: Title seven--they promoted a white woman with the same score on the exam. I have the seniority.
- Lennie Briscoe: I'm sorry we asked.
- Mr. Tobak: This is an outrage. Dr. Nasser is not some peasant fleeing Cuba with a St. Christopher medal and two goats.
- Anita Van Buren: I'm sure he's a respected member of the medical community in Egypt, but he'll have to be detained until his visa status is cleared up.
- Mr. Tobak: Are you suddenly a federal official, Lieutenant?
- Anita Van Buren: The INS is on their way over, you can discuss Dr. Nasser's release with them.
- Jamie Ross: Mr. Tovak finally came through. Dr. Nassar's resume. Turns out he's an OB/GYN.
- Jack McCoy: That's a few organs south of cardiology. Impressive. University of Cairo, Royal Academy of Medicine--a six-week seminar at Lenox Hill in '95--new laser techniques in the removal of uterine fibroids.
- Jamie Ross: Hard to believe the victim had uterine fibroids.
- Jack McCoy: I wonder why Dr. Nassar lied to us.
- Jack McCoy: Who's her judge?
- Adam Schiff: O'Hara.
- Jack McCoy: The one who gave those two kids back to their crackhead mother?
- Adam Schiff: Who later beat one of them to death. Yes, that's O'Hara.
