Detective Benson gets too involved in a rape-homicide case when the victim is an Assistant District Attorney.


When the body of an assistant district attorney is found raped and beaten in Central Park, Benson lets her emotions get the best of her as she takes it upon herself to bring the suspected rapist, a local realtor, to justice.

Olivia Benson: I sure as hell wouldn't drive all the way to Queens just to save *your* ass.
Elliot Stabler: Yeah, you would.
Olivia Benson: OK, but only because you have a wife and kids.
Elliot Stabler: Yeah

Elliot Stabler: Blink your lights when you get inside.
Olivia Benson: You're just gonna sit here all night until I do, aren't you, you stubborn son-of-a-bitch?
Elliot Stabler: Yes, I am.

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.
