- Olivia: You can't break the law, Alex.
- Cabot : Why the hell not?
- Olivia: Because it makes you a criminal, that's why.
- Olivia: What happened to you?
- Cabot: I opened my eyes. I opened them wide and I saw that for 12 years, I was a cog in a holier-than-thou wheel, and the wheel just keeps spinning and tossing off bodies as it goes. Some remain standing, some fall. Nobody cares. Nobody gives a damn as long as the wheel keeps turning.
- Cabot: [about Jules Hunter] We never should've brought her back!
- Olivia: For God's sake, Alex, I followed the law.
- Cabot: And it got her killed!
- Olivia: You cannot be serious.
- Alexandra Cabot: That man belonged in prison.
- Olivia: This is America, Alex. You can't lock someone up without proof.
- Olivia: [to Cabot] You know, today, on the I was on the subway platform, and I saw these two cockroaches, and they were pulling at different ends of a crust of bread. And then the bread tore, and it fell onto the tracks, and and neither bug got their dinner.
- Cabot: Are you proposing we work together?
- Olivia: I could never do what you do, Alex.
