Sonny: I think if they get 20 years, they're getting off too easy. But when you sit down with them, play dominoes, you wonder, are they the same guy 20 years later they were when they went in?
Fin: A lot of things are changing around here. I mean, Rollins got a baby, you got a baby.
Benson: You want a baby? [pauses] You want a life?
Fin: This is my life.
Sonny: Hey, Richie, I wish I could say I never doubted you.
Richie: Yeah, well, I'm a convicted rapist. My whole life, people are gonna doubt me.
