Benson: We've gotten warrants based on less, why are you stonewalling?
Cabot: This is different and you know it. Once a judge hears the suspect's history, he's gonna bend over backwards for the guy.
Benson: I saw him, Alex. Plummer is stalking me.
Cabot: How did he know where you were when he was in the interview room being questioned?
Benson: He must've overheard.
Cabot: Okay, how many businesses are in the area near Chauncey's?
Benson: I don't know, several. Why? Where are you going with this?
Cabot: Any decent defense attorney is going to say that Mr. Plummer was in the area running errands, that it was just a coincidence.
Benson: He has killed four people and we're doing nothing.
Cabot: How many drinks did you have? Olivia, the system made a mistake before, now everything we do is under a microscope.
Benson: I wasn't drunk.

Stabler: I didn't tell you about the detail because I knew you'd refuse.
Benson: Only the rat-squad puts cops on other cops, Elliot, without telling them. I deserve better than that. Especially from you.
Stabler: You've been under a lot of stress lately...
Benson: I've always backed your play.
Stabler: And I did what I had to do. The guy's murdered four people, what's to stop him from coming after you, Olivia?
Benson: If you can't trust your partner, Elliot, it's time to get a new one.

Benson: I'm fine.
Stabler: I'm not. Some low-life's out to get you.
Benson: If he wanted to take me out, he would've tried it already.

Stabler: What about some dinner?
Benson: When was the last time your kids saw your ugly mug?
Stabler: Come on, I'll set an extra plate.
Benson: Nah, see you tomorrow.

We blame all kinds of people for creating monsters. Why not ourselves?

–Olivia Benson

Benson: You worried about something?
Cragen: Your safety.

Eric Plummer: I was innocent.
Olivia Benson: Yes, you were, but then you killed four innocent people.
Eric Plummer: Three innocent people, and one child abuser. I thought cops cared about the facts.

Munch: The victims were pumped full of potassium chloride. Death was painless.
Tutuola: Like that makes a difference.

It wasn't your name stenciled on that door, so whose ass are you really covering?

–Olivia Benson

Stabler: Let's go.
Benson: I can't, got to give my statement.
Stabler: I'll take it.
Benson: You, leave me alone.
