Quotes[edit | edit source]

Brian Cassidy: I don't get S&M I mean, "Hurt me, that turns me on"? Come on. What's up with that?
John Munch: It starts with the tattoos. Once you get the ink, it's just a matter of time before you're begging to be tied up and spanked.
Brian Cassidy: Yeah. Tattoos are just a gateway to the sexual dark side, my friend.

Elliot Stabler: You guys have finally figured me out, huh?
Monique Jeffries: Seriously, did you get off on the tiny little pin pricks of pain?
Elliot Stabler: No. I get that from working with you.

A redhead and a brunette? Thanks for the very sharp description.

–Elliot Stabler

(on Frank Martin)

Anna Faust: He hurt one of my girls.
Elliot Stabler: What's her name?
Anna Faust: If I tell you, do you promise to give him the punishment he so richly deserves?

Elliot Stabler: That's what we hope to do.
Anna Faust: Good boy.
