- Harold Levin: Verstehe.
- John Munch: Need a lift home?
- Olivia Benson: I'm just waiting for Elliot to get back from Forensics

- Olivia Benson: You have the sedan with you?
- Elliot Stabler: Yep
- Olivia Benson: Which means that you drove all the way uptown from the Queensboro Bridge, dropped off the car, picked up the sedan, turned around, all the way back downtown to get here. That's a lot of neighborhood, my friend.
