"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Venom (#7.18)" (2006)
Captain Donald Cragen: [when Fin finds out Ken's been arrested and Fin tries to see him] You're not going in there.
Detective Odafin "Fin" Tutuola: That's my son in there, Captain. Why didn't you call me?
Captain Donald Cragen: Because he didn't want us to. He's over 18 and he's in a lot of trouble. You plan on making it worse?
Detective Odafin "Fin" Tutuola: I plan on asking him what the hell he was doing looking for a body.
Detective John Munch: When you should be asking why he called Olivia instead of you.
Detective Odafin "Fin" Tutuola: That's a separate issue and trust me, I will address that.
Detective John Munch: No doubt with your usual diplomacy.
Detective Odafin "Fin" Tutuola: [yelling] What goes on between me and my son is none of your damn business!
Captain Donald Cragen: [yelling] But it is mine! And right now, I want to know whose body it is, where it is, and who put it there.
Detective Odafin "Fin" Tutuola: You mind if I listen in?

Teresa Randall: [Fin brings Ken to his mother, Theresa's house from the police station] Oh, my God, what happened to you?
Ken Randall: It's not a big deal, Mom.
Detective Odafin "Fin" Tutuola: Yes it is. He got pinched on a Class E felony and two misdemenors.
Teresa Randall: For what? What do we need to do?
Ken Randall: Why are you asking him? I can handle this myself.
Detective Odafin "Fin" Tutuola: Yeah. Looks like you got it covered.
Ken Randall: [stares at Fin] I'm going to bed.
[Ken leaves; Theresa glares at Fin]
Detective Odafin "Fin" Tutuola: That look doesn't work on me anymore.
Teresa Randall: Our son was beaten and arrested and you couldn't pick up a phone?
Detective Odafin "Fin" Tutuola: I just found out myself. I'm looking for Darius. You know where I can find him?
Teresa Randall: What's he got to do with this?
Detective Odafin "Fin" Tutuola: What, something I should know?
Teresa Randall: Darius is poison and always will be. Of course, you were never around much and that hasn't changed.
Detective Odafin "Fin" Tutuola: You still ain't pulling punches. When I was working undercover, I warned you I'd be gone a lot.
Teresa Randall: You weren't gone a lot, you were just gone.
Detective Odafin "Fin" Tutuola: I must've been around sometime or is Ken not my son?
Teresa Randall: I see your lips moving, but I still haven't heard why he was in jail.
Detective Odafin "Fin" Tutuola: Ask him! It might not have been an issue if he had to use my last name.
Teresa Randall: [Theresa shows Fin the door] If you haven't heard, sperm donors don't get parental rights!
Detective Odafin "Fin" Tutuola: Cool. Just tell me where Darius is and I'm gone.
Teresa Randall: Al's Auto Body on Frederick Douglass.
[Fin leaves; Theresa shuts the door]

Captain Donald Cragen: Nobody in my department cuts corners or goes for an easy close.
Detective Odafin "Fin" Tutuola: And that's your opinion, Captain?
Captain Donald Cragen: And for your son's sake, you better be grateful it's the only thing that matters.

Teresa Randall: You and I need to talk.
Detective Odafin "Fin" Tutuola: Talk or yell?
Teresa Randall: That's up to you.

Detective Odafin "Fin" Tutuola: Prisons are full of innocent people and we both know what color most of them all.
Teresa Randall: You don't trust your own people?
Detective Odafin "Fin" Tutuola: I don't trust the system, not completely.

Detective Odafin "Fin" Tutuola: [to Stabler] Wait a minute, you're saying my son's not only a liar, he's a murderer too.
Elliot Stabler: Look, I don't know, but you're the first to admit you really don't know him.
Detective Odafin "Fin" Tutuola: Like you know yours, right? Tell me, is your daughter still driving drunk or has she moved up to something stronger?
Elliot Stabler: All right.
Detective Odafin "Fin" Tutuola: Next thing you know, she's gonna be swinging off a pole.
[the two of them begin fighting until Cragen pulls them apart]

Detective John Munch: [to Cragen] Husband's a wreck, Captain. We'll pull the murder book and go back over the canvass.
Captain Donald Cragen: That's not necessary. Ken Randall is now a viable suspect in the Stansfield homicide. I've already started a file and authorized an excavation for the lot for tomorrow morning.
[to Fin]
Captain Donald Cragen: Were you aware your son was charged with sexual assault of a neighborhood girl when he was 16?
Detective Odafin "Fin" Tutuola: No.
Captain Donald Cragen: Charges were dropped when the girl recanted.
Detective Odafin "Fin" Tutuola: You ever think she might have changed her story 'cause she lied to the police?
Captain Donald Cragen: Well, I intend to find out. Do I need to remind you to stay hands off during this investigation?
Detective Odafin "Fin" Tutuola: No, sir.
Detective John Munch: Five-year-old vacated charge is a reach, Captain. What's the motive? Where's the connection between Fin's son and the victim?
Captain Donald Cragen: Proximity. Ken Randall and his mother used to live in the building across the street from the crime scene, but since your partner already knows that, I guess lying runs in the family.
Detective John Munch: [to Fin] What the hell do you think you're doing? Why would you hide something like that?
Detective Odafin "Fin" Tutuola: I'm trying to protect my son.
Detective John Munch: From what? You think he did this?
Detective Odafin "Fin" Tutuola: I think if you can make a case against him, it won't matter whether he did it or not.

Teresa Randall: [to Fin about Ken] What you're doing isn't the answer. He needs direction. I can't teach him how to be a man by myself, Fin.
Detective Odafin "Fin" Tutuola: So what do you expect me to do?
Teresa Randall: Be his father, not his friend.

Detective Odafin "Fin" Tutuola: It's not your place to make decisions for my family, Olivia. You keep running interference between me and my son, you and I are gonna have a problem.
Olivia Benson: That wasn't my intention.
Detective Odafin "Fin" Tutuola: I understand. You're just trying to help, but my son and I have a lot to work out and we're not gonna get anywhere with you in the way.
Olivia Benson: You're right and I'm sorry, but I think the real reason you're pissed off is 'cause you're boxed into a corner.

Detective Odafin "Fin" Tutuola: I'm getting looks from cops I've known for years. The same glare we give to humps in there. Even if I gotta take the freeze for the duration, I'm not gonna sacrifice my kid for this job ever again.

Teresa Randall: [to Fin] How'd you find out? Nobody knows Darius is my son. Not even Ken.
Detective Odafin "Fin" Tutuola: We checked Ken's DNA against what was left at the crime scene. You should have told me.
Teresa Randall: It happened before I met you.
Detective Odafin "Fin" Tutuola: So why'd you give him up?
Teresa Randall: He had to go somewhere. He certainly couldn't stay with me. I was 16 and his father was a bastard. You don't know what he did to me. Darius looks just like him. I guess he's starting to act like him too.
Detective Odafin "Fin" Tutuola: So why not put him up for adoption? Why give him to your mother to raise?
Teresa Randall: I didn't give her anything. She took. You knew her. She wouldn't allow blood out of the family.
Detective Odafin "Fin" Tutuola: Where's the father now?
Teresa Randall: I don't know. I hope he's dead.
Detective Odafin "Fin" Tutuola: What happened to you, Terry?
Teresa Randall: I will not... I won't talk about that. Not to you. Not to anyone.
Detective Odafin "Fin" Tutuola: Well, maybe that's the real problem.
Teresa Randall: You don't know what it's like to have to look at someone that has the face of someone you hate! Every time he came over to see Ken, every time he came to family functions, it made me sick. I can't stand to look at Darius. Even now.

Dr. George Huang: Interesting family dynamic.
Detective Odafin "Fin" Tutuola: Damn freak show. We belong in one of your textbooks with the rest of the fruit loops.

Detective Odafin "Fin" Tutuola: [to Ken] Looks like you talked to your mother.
Ken Randall: I won't help you put my brother in prison. I'm only here to support Darius. Something he never got from any of you.
Detective Odafin "Fin" Tutuola: Terry's had it rough.
Ken Randall: Hey, don't defend her. Darius is her son and she threw him away.
Detective Odafin "Fin" Tutuola: Well, you took a big risk protecting him. You should have come to me first.
Ken Randall: I didn't trust you. For the longest time he's all I had. No demands, no judgments especially when I came out. You weren't around.
Detective Odafin "Fin" Tutuola: If you wanna support him, that's fine, but you need to remember he killed a woman and took a child, and I need to know where that baby is now.

Captain Donald Cragen: [about Darius] You think his attorney told him what to say?
Casey Novak: No one would advise their client to take that kind of risk. Besides, they're plenty of ex-cons who know the law as well as I do.
Detective Odafin "Fin" Tutuola: There's a lot of law books in prison.

Ken Randall: [to Fin about Darius] Can't do it.
Detective Odafin "Fin" Tutuola: He belongs in prison, Ken.
Ken Randall: Haven't we done enough to him already without me putting the nail in his coffin?
Detective Odafin "Fin" Tutuola: Don't you get it? He sold you on a lie. He's only looking at one count of murder now. He'll never pay for putting that little baby in the ground.
Ken Randall: Why not?
Detective Odafin "Fin" Tutuola: The courts say we got his confession and the bodies illegally. That means we can't use it at trial. We gotta say the murder victim's son came up missing the same time she did. We gotta act like we don't know he's dead because we can't use his body as evidence.
Ken Randall: That's not right.
Detective Odafin "Fin" Tutuola: Yeah, well, that's the law.

Darius Parker: Nobody's going anywhere. I'm not making any deals. I want my day in court.
Detective Odafin "Fin" Tutuola: Listen to your mouthpiece and take the damn offer.
Darius Parker: Go to hell! Kiss my ass and while you down there, spread them 'cause you about to get done!


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Anchor (#11.10)" (2009)
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Munch!
Sergeant John Munch: [wakes up] What?
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Let's get back on this hate mail.

Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Son of a bitch!
Sergeant John Munch: Well, screw you too.
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: I wasn't talking to you.
Sergeant John Munch: What, you got an imaginary friend over there with you now?

[Randall Carver is staging a demonstration outside SVU]
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: [handing Munch a stack of correspondence] Hold this. Gonna go see how far I can kick that bullhorn up his ass.
Sergeant John Munch: Don't dirty your shoe, Fin.

Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: [while reading the t-shirt of a murdered young girl] Jesus loves me. Somebody else sure didn't.

Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: How does a Catholic schoolgirl end up dead on a hooker stroll?
Dr. Melinda Warner: Isn't that a question for Homicide? It's not a sex crime, Fin.
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: She looks like a special victim to me.

Donald Cragen: [to Fin] Ruby Brown is not our case.
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Captain, she was just a little kid.
Donald Cragen: Her death was not sexually motivated and there was no child abuse. So, type up what you've done and get the file over to Homicide.
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Where it will just sit. No witnesses, no leads. The case will die.
Donald Cragen: All the more reason to turf it. I'm getting killed on our closure rate as it is.
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: So our stats are more important than a little girl's life?

Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: We gave out about a hundred flyers. TV news could reach thousands.
Olivia Benson: You know, when I was dating that guy at The Ledger, I got to know this woman on the crime desk. Her name was Nicole Gleason.
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: One PP said no press.
Olivia Benson: She's cute. I could introduce you.
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: I don't need help hooking up.
Olivia Benson: No, but you are going to need an alibi if somebody sees you having a drink with a journalist.

Donald Cragen: [to Fin] When the Chief of D's gives an order, we follow it.
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Unless Liv or Elliot bends the rules. Then you're out on a limb with them.
Donald Cragen: You disobeyed a direct order from your commanding officer.
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Only thing I'm sorry about is I didn't get the front page. Three inches and no photos. If our victim looked like Elizabeth Smart, we'd have a task force and a million-dollar reward.
Donald Cragen: This isn't about race.
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Sure. You keep telling yourself that.

Randall Carver: [on TV] How many more of these children have to die before this so-called Special Victims Unit takes these murders seriously?
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: We just took on the case, you idiot!
Sergeant John Munch: See, now, you're yelling at the TV.

Nicole Gleason: [to Fin] Giving Randall Carver another 15 minutes of fame doesn't interest me.
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Then what are you doing here?
Nicole Gleason: I want to help.
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: By writing another little story that gets buried on Page 17?
Nicole Gleason: I wanted that story on the front page. I did, but my boss...
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Yeah, my boss is not too happy with me right now because of you.
Nicole Gleason: You came to me, remember?
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: So?
Nicole Gleason: So, I heard you got a lead out of it.
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: What I got was a waste of time chasing delivery boys while the real killer iced Scotty Wu.
Nicole Gleason: So that little boy's death is on me.
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: No, it's my fault. I'm going nowhere on this case and innocent kids are being killed.
Nicole Gleason: It's a heavy, heavy load, Fin, but you don't have to carry it alone.
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Yeah? You going to solve this case for me?
Nicole Gleason: Enjoy the pity party, Odafin.
[walks away]

Olivia Benson: [as Fin is looking at the photos of the three murdered children] Smiles like that ought to live forever. The kids always get to me, too, Fin.
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: If you came to give me a pep talk, save it.
Olivia Benson: Actually, I came to give you these.
[hands him a pile of papers]
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Seriously? Are you kidding me? Paperwork?
[throws the papers on the floor]
Olivia Benson: They're employee files. For every vendor who does business with the Center of lmmigrant Services From the company that does their payroll to the one that cleans their toilet. I figured that one of the people that goes in and out of there on a daily basis might be your bad guy.
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: You stuck your neck out running down leads for me.
Olivia Benson: And this is the thanks I get?
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: I've been putting my foot in it with every woman that crossed my path today.

Olivia Benson: Fin, you've worked cases like this before. What is it about these kids?
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Everything. Their skin color. The fact people just don't seem to care.

Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: [to Joe Thagard] Better grow wings or I'm going to blow your brains all over the street down there.

Joe Thagard: I didn't do nothing to that boy.
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Only 'cause I got there first.
Joe Thagard: I drank some beers earlier. I accidentally went into the wrong apartment.
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Then you cold-cocked the dad, tied up the mother. What, were you going to read the kid a bedtime story?

Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: [to Randall Carver] I don't get why you're defending this wacko.
Randall Carver: Thagard's a symptom, not the disease.
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: That symptom killed three kids.
Randall Carver: Garrison, Limbaugh, Beck, O'Reilly, all of them. They're like a cancer spreading ignorance and hate. I mean, they've convinced folks that immigrants are the problem. Not corporations that fail to pay a living wage, or a broken health-care system.
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Save the soapbox, Randy. The cameras aren't even running.
Randall Carver: I ain't doing this for the attention. I get enough of that already.
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Then why are you wasting your time on this loser?
Randall Carver: My daddy was a Klansman. Told me stories about lynchings. When I asked him why, he just said, "Son, some men need killing."
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Daddy issues, huh? You get Thagard off, him and all those knucklehead Kluckers will be real proud of you. Might even give you your own pointed hood.
Randall Carver: Listen to me. I hate the Klan and everything they stand for, but they did teach me that a good man can be swept up by evil forces. The problem is bigger than Joe Thagard. Those kids would still be alive if Garrison hadn't driven him to kill.

Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: How the hell did this happen, Alex?
Alexandra Cabot: I was hoping you could tell me.
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: I'd like to wipe that smile off Thagard's face with a belt sander.
Alexandra Cabot: It's my fault, Fin. I underestimated Carver. He gave Thagard one hell of a makeover.
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: From child killer to pathetic punk with a hard-knock life.
Alexandra Cabot: Juries love a weepy mea culpa.
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: And Garrison looked like the real psycho.
Alexandra Cabot: Especially after his freaky fans went nuts.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Broken Rhymes (#18.6)" (2016)
Dominick Carisi, Jr.: Vic's legal name is Eric Carson. She's a twenty-four year old art student from Montclair, New Jersey. Seems like she goes by the name Eva these days.
Olivia Benson: Parents?
Odafin Tutuola: They're on their way.
Dominick Carisi, Jr.: This is the nurse.
Olivia Benson: Hey. What do we got?
SANE Nurse: Rape kit showed forced penetration, severe tearing and bleeding, perforated colon. Significant blunt force trauma to the head and torso, as well. She's lucky to be alive.
Olivia Benson: Okay. Semen? Is there any sign of... of intercourse?
SANE Nurse: No.
Amanda Rollins: Defensive wounds?
SANE Nurse: Bruises on her wrists and arms. We're checking her nails for DNA.
Olivia Benson: Thank you.
Dominick Carisi, Jr.: [as the nurse leaves] Okay. So a transgender art student from the suburbs gets beaten and raped with a pipe in a public restroom just months after New York State signs the gender neutral bathroom bill. Media's gonna be all over this.
Olivia Benson: Yeah, for good reason. This is a hate crime.

Odafin Tutuola: Just got off the phone with the event planner. He says he doesn't know the name of the guy who got slapped, but he does know he was a guest of Vincent Love's.
Amanda Rollins: Vincent Love, the rap guy?
Odafin Tutuola: Yeah, the founder of 187 Music. He works with the biggest names out there.
Olivia Benson: So I'm guessing that big-name rappers don't appreciate getting slapped by transgender models. All right. Let's find Vincent Love and find out exactly what happened.

Odafin Tutuola: You Hype?
Hype: Yeah. What can I do for you fellas?
Dominick Carisi, Jr.: NYPD. We're here about Eva Carson.
Hype: Who?
Odafin Tutuola: The friend you met in the club Thursday night.
Hype: [Carisi shows him Eva's picture] Oh, that freak? Look, dude slapped me. You should be arresting his stupid ass.
Odafin Tutuola: Maybe we will. Once she gets out of the coma.
Hype: Coma?
Odafin Tutuola: Yeah, somebody did her with a pipe.

Olivia Benson: Do we have anything on Hype's past that suggests that he's good for this?
Dominick Carisi, Jr.: One prior. Armed robbery. Plead it down to a misdemeanor, didn't do any time, but I listened to some of his music. It's hardcore.
Amanda Rollins: You mean hateful. It's full of homophobic rants, gay slurs.
Olivia Benson: So he may not be the spokesperson for the LGBTQ crowd, but it doesn't mean that he's good for the assault.
Amanda Rollins: This might. Look at this.
[turning her laptop around]
Amanda Rollins: "Look who I just ran into at Cypress market! #HypeRules." Posted yesterday at 11:54 a.m. I mean, that's twenty minutes before Eva's attack.
Odafin Tutuola: Yeah, so much for being in the studio all day working on his rhymes.
Olivia Benson: Let's bring him in. I want to find out what he was doing at Cypress market and why he lied about it.

Dominick Carisi, Jr.: I listened to a few of your songs. You're obviously not a big fan of gay and transgender people.
Hype: Man, it's just music, a'ight?
Dominick Carisi, Jr.: You know what? My favorite line is, uh, "when a tranny looks your way, got to make sure the dude pays. Cap to the head. Boot to the grill. All you bitches know I ain't 'fraid to kill."
Hype: Keep at it, G. You could be the next Eminem.
Odafin Tutuola: And you could be the next brother from Harlem doing time if you don't tell us what your punk ass was really doing yesterday afternoon.

Odafin Tutuola: That's Cash Lewis. That's Hype's business parter and producer.
Amanda Rollins: Well, he's got quite the rap sheet. Felony assault. Weapons. Narcotics. And gang affiliation for added measure.
Dominick Carisi, Jr.: Okay, so Cash is hanging out with Eva behind Logan's back. Why would he beat and rape her?
Odafin Tutuola: Lots of reasons.
Olivia Benson: All we need is one.

Dominick Carisi, Jr.: $50,000, payable to Eric Carson, aka Eva. We found it in a wastebasket in her apartment.
Odafin Tutuola: Written on a 187 checking account.
Olivia Benson: Okay, so why did she rip it up?
Dominick Carisi, Jr.: I'm guessing out of principle.
Odafin Tutuola: Cash the check first. Worry about principle later.
Olivia Benson: All right. So Cash and Vincent Love try to bribe Eva. She says no. Then what?
Odafin Tutuola: Well, Hype's worried about some transgender girl telling the world that she writes all his hardcore raps.
Olivia Benson: Okay, that sounds like possible motive to me.
Dominick Carisi, Jr.: Yeah, but for who? Cash? Hype? Vincent Love?
Amanda Rollins: My money's on Hype.
Olivia Benson: What do you mean?
Amanda Rollins: I just spoke with the lab. They found his DNA under Eva's fingernails.
Olivia Benson: Sit on his studio. I'll send Anti-Crime to the apartment.
[to Fin and Carisi as she leaves]
Olivia Benson: You two, work on an arrest warrant. Now!

Olivia Benson: Hype, we have your DNA under Eva's fingernails. We have you near the crime scene twenty minutes before the attack, and as for motive, there's too many to choose from.
Odafin Tutuola: Hate. Greed.
Olivia Benson: Not to mention that you were heading toward the hospital, to what? To kill her? To make sure that she never woke up so she couldn't ID you?
Odafin Tutuola: Hype. You gotta come clean, man. We already have enough to charge you.
Olivia Benson: He's right. We're just being polite.

Olivia Benson: We're giving you a chance to tell us what really happened.
Odafin Tutuola: Now, you can start by telling us how your DNA got under Eva's fingernails.
Hype: Okay. But if I tell y'all, will you promise to keep it private?
Olivia Benson: Absolutely. We won't say a word.
Hype: Like, for real? You can't tell no one.
Olivia Benson: For real.
Hype: Okay. Cool. I appreciate that. So... the reason my skin is underneath her fingernails is because... we had sex. We... we're dating. We're in love.

Dominick Carisi, Jr.: So Hype's in love with Eva.
Odafin Tutuola: That's what he says.
Amanda Rollins: And you believe him?
Olivia Benson: He seems credible, but he's told so many lies. It's really hard to tell where he's coming from.
Odafin Tutuola: That's what makes me believe he's telling the truth.
Dominick Carisi, Jr.: How so?
Odafin Tutuola: I mean, Hype's an up and coming rapper. Hardcore, at that.
Amanda Rollins: So he's been lying to protect his image.
Odafin Tutuola: His career. I mean, this style of rap is all about reputation. It's all about street cred. For him to tell his fans that he's in love with a transgender woman, they'd laugh at him. His whole brand would go up in smoke.
Olivia Benson: It's 2016, for god's sake.
Odafin Tutuola: Not for people selling gangster rap.
Dominick Carisi, Jr.: Yeah, or some of my relatives.
Amanda Rollins: Or mine, too.
Odafin Tutuola: Look, this whole gender fluidity thing is coming out more nowadays, and that's cool, but the truth is it's confusing, and a lot of people can't make sense of it all. Me included.
Olivia Benson: And our friend Hype.
Dominick Carisi, Jr.: Okay, so let's... let's say we believe this guy, that he really does love Eva. That still doesn't make him innocent.
Olivia Benson: Listen, I agree. All that denial and... and self hatred. Who knows? Maybe Hype did just crack and took out all his rage on Eva. Let's go back inside and see if we can learn anything.

Olivia Benson: So, Hype, I just want to go over everything again and make sure that I... that I fully understand. So you and Eva were involved, and that's the reason that you went to the hospital? To check on her condition?
Hype: Yeah. I mean, I just wanted to make sure she was okay. But like I said, I ain't gay. Not even close. I just... you know, I just like her, that's all.
Olivia Benson: So when did you and Eva first meet?
Hype: Three months ago. At some party for some photographer. We liked each other. Started hanging out.
Odafin Tutuola: Why'd she slap you?
Hype: 'Cause I pretended I ain't know her. Started making some stupid jokes. I just ain't want nobody to know, that's all.
Olivia Benson: So this had nothing to do with the songs she wrote.
Hype: What are you talking about?
Odafin Tutuola: Your boy Cash told us she wrote some of your tracks, but you didn't want her name on the album. That's why he and Vincent Love had to give her 50k to remain anonymous.
Hype: What the hell are you talking about? Eva didn't write no tracks. She don't even like rap. Look, I write my own rhymes, from day one, a'ight?
Olivia Benson: Then why were you at Cypress market?
Hype: Eva wanted to have lunch. In public. She was tired of our relationship being on the DL. It was a big deal to her.
Olivia Benson: And?
Hype: I freaked out. Changed my mind. I mean, I wanted to have lunch, but I just couldn't do it. So I left. Went to the bar down the street, drank some peach schnapps, and went back to the studio.

Odafin Tutuola: The bartender at the Golden Goat says he remembers Hype. Says he's the first person in five years to order peach schnapps. Surveillance video show him there from 12:10 to 1:05.
Olivia Benson: Okay, so if Hype didn't do it, then who did? The boyfriend, Logan, is in the clear, right?
Amanda Rollins: Yeah. The office manager confirms he was at the doctor's office from 12:15 to 1:10.
Olivia Benson: So if it wasn't Hype and it wasn't Logan...
Dominick Carisi, Jr.: It's gotta be Cash.
Olivia Benson: Okay, so get the mother and the daughter down here right away and see if they can ID him.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Outsider (#8.12)" (2007)
Henry: [after being shot] I'm bleeding. Am I going to die?
Det. Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: It's just a flesh wound. You'll live.

Chester Lake: [incredulous] I should take career advice from you?
Det. Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: [turns, angry] What's that supposed to mean?
Chester Lake: I did my homework before I showed up. Yeah, Stabler and Benson get gold stars in Cragen's class; where does that leave you?
Det. Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: I'd like to answer that question outside.
Chester Lake: I'm sure you would, friend. But that would be even dumber than ignoring me. You don't like me, fine. But you know there's a connection between my bodies and your victims.
Det. Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: [pause] We don't find a link in 48 hours, you solve your cases and I'll solve mine.
Chester Lake: [nods] Done.
Det. Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Try to keep up.
[Chester smiles and follows him]

Chester Lake: Been to Brooklyn lately?
Kara Bawson: No. I've been too busy setting up the new exhibit to go anywhere but the gallery.
Det. Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: How about Hudson University? You spend any time on campus?
Kara Bawson: No, but I used to date a guy who got his MBA there.
Det. Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Y'recognize her?
[holds picture of raped college student]
Kara Bawson: No. Why?
Chester Lake: She was attacked by the same guy who raped you.
Tom Bawson: [enters] Sweetie, you ready to go?
Kara Bawson: Not yet, Dad. These are police officers.
Tom Bawson: Honey, you wanna go upstairs and finish packing?
[He gently leads her into a hug and she stoically leaves the scene as he looks back at her]
Chester Lake: She's taking a trip?
Tom Bawson: After what she's been through, Kara needs to get away and rest.
Chester Lake: Your daughter's a victim of a rape. We need her here until we finish our investigation.
Tom Bawson: Our numbers in Italy. Call if you have something.
[turns to leave]
Det. Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: [Fin and Chester follow him] You're not helping by yanking her out of the country.
Tom Bawson: The press is all over this case.
Det. Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: They can't print her name.
Tom Bawson: Everyone knows she works in that gallery! We're trying to protect her from rumors.
Chester Lake: We will call your daughter. I think she's connected to some of my cases in Brooklyn.
Tom Bawson: This bastard has raped other women?
Det. Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: An Asian-American college student was attacked a couple of days ago.
Tom Bawson: Asian-American? Start with Oliver Mitsakos.
Det. Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Who's that?
Tom Bawson: Kara's ex-fiance. My squash partner runs the hedge fund where Oliver works. He told me this little jerk has a thing for young Asian hookers.

Chester Lake: Hey, you Oliver Mitsakos?
Oliver Mitsakos: Who wants t'know?
Det. Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: [walks over on the other side of Mitsakos] Southeast Asian Sex Tourism Board. Congratulations; you won a free cruise to Thailand!
[Oliver gets up and chortles; looks at the two men, grinning]
Oliver Mitsakos: Am I getting punk'd? Did Andy and Amber put you up to this?
Det. Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: I'm not Andy and that's not Amber.
[shows badge]
Det. Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: You're about to be hating life.
[Oliver begins walking away, smiling, and Fin and Lake follow to a discreet area of the office]
Chester Lake: What the hell? You getting your massages with a happy ending? Huh? We hear you like 'em Asian and underage.
Oliver Mitsakos: You meet a girl, you ask for her birth certificate?
Det. Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Where were you last night?
Oliver Mitsakos: Home watching the Knicks lose.
Det. Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: You know her?
[shows Ming's photo]
Oliver Mitsakos: [serious] Never seen her before in my life. Now if you'll excuse me, I gotta handle more money in ten minutes than you'll see in a lifetime.
[puts head slightly down and walks away]
Chester Lake: My gut says he's lying.
Det. Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Your gut's a genius.
[the men stop; Lake turns to Fin]
Chester Lake: All we need is Ming to ID him.
Det. Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: That's gonna be a problem.
[elevator doors open and the men turn and walk to the doors]

Det. Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: [Title card: Hudson University; Alexander Hall; Thursday, December 7] We can't call her house and her cell phone's disconnected.
[walking with Lake and Ken]
Chester Lake: And the only time we can see her is when she's at school.
Ken Randall: That'll be tough; her father's always with her, watching her like a hawk.
Det. Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Well, if he sees us, we're facing a lawsuit.
Chester Lake: Look, can't you get us somewhere we can talk to her in private?
Ken Randall: She's in class right now. I'll go in, say the dean wants to see her.
[walks away to Ming's class; cut to him exiting behind a deer caught in headlights Ming]
Ming Hao: I can't talk to them.
[walks away]
Ken Randall: Please; they have a lead.
Ming Hao: [still walking quickly] My father's waiting for me. Leave me alone.
Ken Randall: Another girl was attacked.
Det. Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Just look at the picture.
Ming Hao: [turns and looks] I know him. That's Oliver Mitsakos. He was a T.A. for Intro to Econ my freshman year.
Chester Lake: [Fin and Lake exchange multiple glances] You have any contact with him outside the classroom?
Ming Hao: He tried to make me come to his office hours, but I wouldn't.
Det. Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Why not?
Ming Hao: He always flirted, but he was aggressive about it.
Chester Lake: Was he ever physical or violent?
Ming Hao: It wasn't like that. Just... really desperate.
[shakes head slightly]
Ming Hao: It creeped me out.
[face shows realization; slightly raises her voice]
Ming Hao: Do you think he did this to me?

Oliver Mitsakos: [Oliver backs into interrogation grate as Fin menacingly comes after him] I would never rape anyone; you gotta believe me.
Det. Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Why? You lied about knowing Ming.
Oliver Mitsakos: She was in my class 3 years ago; she barely spoke; I barely remember her!
Det. Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: She remembers you. "Come to my office for a little one on one tutoring."
Oliver Mitsakos: I never said that!
Chester Lake: Well, what did you say?
Oliver Mitsakos: I - I told her that she needed extra help because her papers were poorly written.
Det. Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: [puts him in the chair] You're still lyin', kid; you flirted with her every day!
Chester Lake: [behind Oliver] You were aggressive.
Det. Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: And desperate.
Oliver Mitsakos: That was a long time ago.
Chester Lake: [leans in front of Oliver on his hands] Old wounds still burn. So you went back and raped all the women who've rejected you.
Oliver Mitsakos: [frustrated] No!
Chester Lake: Anna.
[slams picture on table]
Chester Lake: She dump you? Maya.
[slams her picture on the table]
Chester Lake: Break your heart? Rose.
[slams picture on table]
Chester Lake: Blow you off? Is that why you raped and murdered them?
Oliver Mitsakos: I don't know those people!
Chester Lake: [sits and cocks head] Let me tell you about them. You thought they were all Brooklyn trash. Nothin' but warm-ups for your ultimate target. Kara Bawson, your ex-fiance.
Oliver Mitsakos: [laughs and smiles with mirth] You're crazy.
Det. Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Naw; you lost your meal ticket and your chance of getting rich quick.
Chester Lake: You wanted revenge.
Oliver Mitsakos: [leans forward] I didn't do anything. I swear.
Detective Elliot Stabler: [knock on door; Elliot enters] Fin. Moment?
[turns and exits so Fin can follow him]
Detective Elliot Stabler: You just got an emergency call, urgent.
[Chester comes out]
Det. Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: You can talk. That's Chet Lake, Brooklyn SVU.
Chester Lake: Chester.
[shakes Elliot's hand]
Detective Elliot Stabler: Elliot.
[sighs]
Detective Elliot Stabler: You got the wrong guy. Your perp just hit again. Victim's in the E.R. at Mercy. Name's Edie Rimpo.
[Chester and Fin look at each other shocked and walk away to go to Mercy and talk to Edie]

Ming Hao: [off-screen] When I got off the subway, the platform was empty.
[a shot of Fin, then showing Ken by her, listening to her story; Ming sniffs]
Ming Hao: I was headed for the stairs, and all of a sudden a man grabbed me.
Det. Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: [quietly] Take your time.
Ming Hao: He dragged me behind a pillar.
[shudderingly gasps]
Ming Hao: He bent me down. He put his hand over my mouth.
Det. Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Did you get a look at him.
Ming Hao: Only for a second. He had a bandana around his face. I closed my eyes.
Ken Randall: What did he do?
Ming Hao: He made me tell him I liked it while he did it to me.
[shudderingly gasps]
Ming Hao: Then he started choking me.
Det. Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: What happened next?
Ming Hao: I heard shouting. People yelling "stop." He got up and ran away.
Det. Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Did you see who was shouting?
Ming Hao: No; when I opened my eyes, everyone was gone.
[Ken looks back at his father, slightly shaking his head]
Ken Randall: They must've chased him.
Det. Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: [sincerely] You're doin' good, okay? This is gonna help us catch the guy that hurt you.
Ming Hao: I don't wanna go to court; my parents will find out.
Ken Randall: It's okay, Ming. You're not the first girl at Hudson to get raped.
[quietly sobs in gasps and then gets up]
Ming Hao: [to Fin] I knew I shouldn't have come here. I can't do this.
[turns and retreats as Ken looks at her go and looks back desperately at his father]
Ken Randall: I blew it.
Det. Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: [without emotion] Fix it.
[Ken gets up quickly and exits after Ming; Fin sits, somewhat affected]

Ken Randall: [walks into S.V.U] Dad. I couldn't convince Ming to come back.
[comes to desk and puts hands on the desk to support his weight]
Ken Randall: What do we do now?
Det. Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: There's not much else we can do.
Ken Randall: So, what, you just forget about her?
Det. Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: I can't force her to make a report if she doesn't want to.
Ken Randall: She's in shock!
Det. Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Look, Ken.
[sighs quietly]
Det. Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Going through a rape kit, testimony, cross-examination can be hard. Some women just wanna move on.
Ken Randall: Please, Dad. I-I said the wrong thing and scared her off; I gotta make this right!
[Fin looks away]

Olivia Benson: [Fin walks in hallway; Olivia comes from another hallway and meets with him and they walk quickly together] I saw Ken downstairs.
Det. Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: He tell you how he screwed up?
Olivia Benson: Aw, he seemed pretty upset.
Det. Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Well, he should be.
Olivia Benson: Look, he was trying to help. You can talk to her.
Det. Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: The girl's a stone; we don't have time to squeeze blood.
Olivia Benson: So you're not gonna do anything?
[stops and Fin turns around to talk]
Det. Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Ming's the one throwing up the roadblocks.
Olivia Benson: So, go around her. Look, take a crack at this. For your son.
Det. Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: [quietly, nods slightly] I'll check the overnights to see if anybody who saw Ming being attacked called 911.

Officer: [on the street with Fin, getting a cup of coffee] Yeah, they called it in alright.
Det. Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Why didn't you file a 61?
Officer: I didn't believe those two crazies. No victim; no evidence of a crime.
Det. Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: What, you moonlighting as a crime scene tech now?
Officer: You wouldn't've filed a report, either. The perp they described looked like the Unabomber. And I haven't heard anything on the news that he escaped.
Det. Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Okay; I need the names of the witnesses.
Officer: I didn't write 'em down.
[sits on car]
Det. Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Well, I'm definitely gonna write yours down.
Officer: Look, their eyes were bloodshot; they were stoned out of their gourds.
Det. Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: [mad] That doesn't mean they couldn't help.
Officer: The way they were dressed, they were the ones who needed help.
Det. Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: What do you mean?
Officer: His face was painted; she had black feathers all over her, like they came straight out of the nuthouse. Claimed they got off work at some restaurant.
Det. Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Do ya remember the name of the joint?
Officer: Uh, Joe's? Moe's? Poe's? Somethin' like that.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Dolls (#4.7)" (2002)
John Munch: Why do we always get the trash detail?
Odafin Tutuola: 'Cause we're the right men for the job.
[finds something in the trash]
Odafin Tutuola: Plus we've got the will and we got the skill.

Odafin Tutuola: Violet's telling the truth.
John Munch: Junkies lie all the time. Your words.
Odafin Tutuola: You didn't talk to her.
John Munch: Then let her see the body.
Odafin Tutuola: The child had no face. No mother can handle that.
John Munch: Sounds like you're lacking a little objectivity.
Odafin Tutuola: Why? 'Cause I'm not handling things your way?
John Munch: The department doesn't have a budget for Violet's hotel room. You're paying for it, aren't you?
Odafin Tutuola: So what?
John Munch: Well, I guess she is kind of cute.
Odafin Tutuola: Look, somebody knows who took Nina after Mrs. Hawkins died. We've gotta canvass her neighborhood. Let's go.
John Munch: I still think you ought to let her view the body.
Odafin Tutuola: Are you coming or what?
John Munch: How do you even know she has a kid? Maybe she's using Cherish Doe for a handout.
Odafin Tutuola: I pulled the birth certificate myself, so back off.
Elliot Stabler: [walks up to Fin and Munch] Lover's quarrel?
Odafin Tutuola: Gonna be a domestic dispute if Munch don't get out of my face.

Odafin Tutuola: [to Mrs. Preston] You see the resemblance to Nina Tremain? This little girl was raped, murdered and tossed in a dumpster. Don't get in my way, lady.

Olivia Benson: [to Mrs. Preston about Nina Tremain] Can you explain why your records say that you visited her last Tuesday and Thelma Price says you didn't?
Mrs. Preston: That woman's a liar.
Odafin Tutuola: You're the liar, lady!
Mrs. Preston: Hey, I want my union rep.
Olivia Benson: Yeah? Well, why don't you tell your union rep that Nina Tremain is missing and that you haven't seen her in six weeks. You were responsible for this child's safety and you didn't even bother to check on her.
Mrs. Preston: This is not my fault.
Odafin Tutuola: Whose fault is it?
Mrs. Preston: Do you know what my job is like? How big of a caseload I have? There's no way I can see every child.
Odafin Tutuola: If you're looking for sympathy, you're barking up the wrong tree.

Alexandra Cabot: [to Fin about Violet going undercover in her AA meeting to find Ronnie Marshall] Whatever you're thinking, don't.
Odafin Tutuola: Violet's our only way in.
Alexandra Cabot: Violet would be acting as an agent of the police. Any evidence she obtains could be excluded in court.
Odafin Tutuola: We're not looking for evidence, Counselor. We're looking for a lead. Nina Tremain might still be alive.
Alexandra Cabot: We're talking about violating the confidentiality of a drug treatment program.
Donald Cragen: Alex, I tell people in A.A. things I wouldn't want my best friend to know. Now I'd be the first to agree with you, but I don't see how making an appeal could hurt.
Alexandra Cabot: I would prefer to get the information through legal channels. I'll get a subpoena.
Donald Cragen: For what? N.A. doesn't keep membership lists or records.
Odafin Tutuola: You want to tell that woman you care more about the law than the life of her child? She's living a parent's worst nightmare. You think I really had to run a number on her?
Alexandra Cabot: All right, but the only way we do this is the right way.

Ronnie Marshall: [to Fin] What is your problem?
Odafin Tutuola: Your daughter's dead and there's not one cell in your junkie body that gives a damn.
Ronnie Marshall: That man who took my daughter was right. I'm not fit to be a mom. Susie deserved more than me. Now she's gone and there's nothing that I can do that's gonna change that.
Odafin Tutuola: You could help us save this other little girl. Make it right for Susie.

Olivia Benson: [to Terry Jessup] Your dolls are beautiful. I had lots of dolls, but never ones as nice as yours.
Terry Jessup: Girls are lucky. They can play with dolls. Boys aren't supposed to.
Odafin Tutuola: I had dolls.
Terry Jessup: You did? What kind?
Odafin Tutuola: You know, GI Joe, Batman...
Terry Jessup: Those are action figures.

Alexandra Cabot: Putting Violet and Jessup together is a bad idea.
Odafin Tutuola: She was strong enough to go to those NA meetings. We prep her correctly, I know she can handle it.
[to Dr. Huang]
Odafin Tutuola: Back me up, Doc.
Dr. George Huang: Jessup thinks he's saving Nina from an abusive parent. If you challenge his delusion, he might break.
Olivia Benson: And if this doesn't work, the guilt will destroy Violet's life.
Odafin Tutuola: A dead child's gonna destroy her even more. Nina's gonna die if we don't do something.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Rooftop (#3.4)" (2001)
Fin Tutuola: No matter what you say, Captain, you're not black and you're not from the hood.

Malik Harris: [on the verge of a death sentence] I want a deal.
Fin Tutuola: Want a deal? How 'bout right before we execute you for killin' those girls, I bring you your last meal? How's that?

Fin Tutuola: Problem is, even if the woman lies about her age, it's still the man's fault.
John Munch: Ignorance is no defense.
Olivia Benson: Nashika Morris is 14. She's not a woman; she's a girl.
Fin Tutuola: What's the guy supposed to do? Check the girl's birth certificate? I'm just as opposed to rape as everybody else in this room, but if she wanted to have sex, that's her choice. She wasn't forced.
Elliot Stabler: She's a minor. What she wants isn't relevant.
A.D.A. Alexandra Cabot: [as she and Dr. Huang walk into the squad room] Are we interrupting?
John Munch: Friendly disagreement.

Elliot Stabler: [to Fin] You okay?
Fin Tutuola: Yeah. I just don't like some guy making my home turf dangerous for young girls.
Elliot Stabler: I thought you grew up in Brooklyn.
Fin Tutuola: Nope. About 10 blocks from here. Ground Zero for the '68 riots.
Elliot Stabler: What was that like?
Fin Tutuola: I was six. My mother said the only way we're leaving our apartment was if somebody burned it down.

Fin Tutuola: Spent a lot of time on my rooftop when I was a kid. It was safe back then.
Elliot Stabler: Doing the wild thing with your girlfriend?
Fin Tutuola: You know, when you live here you can't afford a vacation to Aruba, so you went to "Isle of Aroofa." Tar Beach. Plus the guys like to come up here 'cause this is where the girls would come hang out.
Elliot Stabler: I grew up in Queens. All I ever wanted was the excitement of the city. Sounds like all you ever wanted was quiet. We should've traded places.

Alva Tate: [to Stabler] You happy now?
Elliot Stabler: Mrs. Tate, I'm sorry about Leon.
Alva Tate: Don't you dare say you're sorry. You're glad he's dead. He didn't kill those girls, but you killed him anyway. You murdered him.
Fin Tutuola: Mrs. Tate, Detective Stabler was doing his job.
Alva Tate: My son was innocent.
Fin Tutuola: Your son was gonna kill somebody with his HIV. We had to stop him. We didn't put the needle in his arm.
Alva Tate: You didn't, but you all stick together, don't you?
[walks away]
Elliot Stabler: Fin, thanks for taking my back with Mrs. Tate.
Fin Tutuola: Leon was scum. He was gonna kill some innocent girl if you didn't stop him.

Fin Tutuola: An East Side socialite disappears, we got 50 cops on it. Black girls start getting executed, we got 4 cops.

Cleo Conrad: It was a setup.
A.D.A. Alexandra Cabot: We arranged for your client to bite Rodney Thompson? I don't think so.
Fin Tutuola: Bit yourself in the ass with your big mouth this time, King.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Motherly Love (#18.10)" (2017)
Olivia Benson: Detective Perry, Homicide?
Det. Marcus Perry: Yeah.
Olivia Benson: Lieutenant Benson, SVU.
Det. Marcus Perry: Thanks for getting here so fast.
Odafin Tutuola: So, what are we looking at?
Det. Marcus Perry: DOA Is Trey Franklin, 15. Rifle shot to the head, close range.
Olivia Benson: You said the shooter interrupted a rape?
Det. Marcus Perry: Yeah. Luke Keller, also 15. Saw Franklin assaulting his mother, Nicole Keller - Dr. Nicole Keller, 45.
Amanda Rollins: Did you keep them separated?
Det. Marcus Perry: Yep. We secured the scene and the weapon, took the kid's initial statements. He's upstairs. The mother's in the living room.
Olivia Benson: Okay, so we'll take the disclosure.
Det. Marcus Perry: That's why I called you guys.

Regina Franklin: I want to see him. I want to see my son's body.
Det. Marcus Perry: Mrs. Franklin, ma'am, it's better that you don't.
Charles Franklin: I still don't understand what happened.
Odafin Tutuola: A classmate of his, Luke Keller, he fired a weapon. The bullet struck and killed him.
Charles Franklin: Luke? That doesn't make any sense. They're... they're friends.
Regina Franklin: Was it an accident?
Odafin Tutuola: We're still looking into it. But Luke's mother says your son was sexually assaulting her.
Charles Franklin: What? And... and that's why Luke shot him?
Odafin Tutuola: It's possible.
Charles Franklin: No. No. It's... it's not possible! Trey would never assault anyone. Ever.
Det. Marcus Perry: You may be right. It's obviously very early in the investigation.
Charles Franklin: Is Luke under arrest?
Det. Marcus Perry: Not yet.
Charles Franklin: Oh, I see. White kid shoots black kid, got to be the black kid's fault. That's what you're saying?
Odafin Tutuola: No. Not even close. We're just trying to figure out what happened.
Charles Franklin: Yeah, well, me, too, 'cause my son was a good kid. No. A *great* kid.

Odafin Tutuola: Fifteen's a crazy age. Testosterone, impulses.
Amanda Rollins: Yeah, but you don't just wake up one morning out of the blue and decide to rape your buddy's mom. I don't know. There's... there's something else going on here. I don't know. Everything here, though, looks good. There's no weed, no booze. The only thing wrong is maybe a couple of dirty socks.
Odafin Tutuola: Check this out.
[showing her a pair of intimate pictures of Trey and Dr. Keller]
Amanda Rollins: That's the mother? Dr. Keller?
Amanda Rollins: Definitely more wrong here than dirty socks.

Odafin Tutuola: We need to talk to you down at the station.
Dr. Nicole Keller: I already told you everything I know.
Odafin Tutuola: Yeah? Well, we talked to Ethan Miller. You know him, right?
Dr. Nicole Keller: Sure. He's a friend of Luke's.
Olivia Benson: He said that you sexually assaulted him ten times. Maybe eleven.
Dr. Nicole Keller: That's preposterous.
Olivia Benson: Then you moved on to Trey. Ethan got upset, punched him. They both got suspended from school.
Dr. Nicole Keller: They're kids. They fantasize about older women. It's a natural, healthy fantasy.
Olivia Benson: Nope. There's nothing natural or healthy about statutory rape. Let's go. You're coming with us.

Olivia Benson: Were you having a sexual relationship with Trey Franklin prior to the night he was shot and killed?
Dr. Nicole Keller: Like I've been trying to tell you, he was obsessed with me.
Odafin Tutuola: That's a yes?
Dr. Nicole Keller: It's an absolute, unequivocal no.
Odafin Tutuola: What about Ethan? That's an absolute, unequivocal no, too?
Dr. Nicole Keller: Correct.
Olivia Benson: So Ethan was lying?
Dr. Nicole Keller: Of course he's lying!
Olivia Benson: Okay. Well, when he told me what happened, he started to cry. And then he turned to his father and he begged him not to hate him. We have a believable fifteen year old boy in there who is claiming that you sexually assaulted him and Trey Franklin.
Odafin Tutuola: Making things worse, Trey is dead.
Olivia Benson: Because you told your son that he was raping you, when, in fact, you were raping him.
Dr. Nicole Keller: You're making this up.
Olivia Benson: The sooner you tell us the truth, the better this is gonna be for you. And more importantly, Luke.
Dr. Nicole Keller: Don't you presume to tell me what's best for my son.
Olivia Benson: I'm not presuming anything. I'm just stating facts.

Dr. Nicole Keller: My understanding of the law is unless I'm under arrest, I'm free to go. I'll be calling my lawyer.
Olivia Benson: That's your right. We'll be in touch. I'm sure we'll have a lot to talk about.
Odafin Tutuola: [Nicole leaves] She's a stone cold liar.
Olivia Benson: A psychiatrist who's abusing teenage boys, emotionally damaging her own son. That is deeper than lying, man. That is pathological.

Olivia Benson: I want to track her phone. I need to vet Ethan's story.
Odafin Tutuola: She's smart. And a liar like that, she covers her tracks.
Olivia Benson: That's why we need hard evidence that she cannot lie her way out of. But first we need to make absolutely sure that Luke had no prior knowledge of what was going on with his mother and Trey.

Dr. Nicole Keller: First you lie to my son. Now you harass me in my place of business?
Olivia Benson: Stop talking. You're under arrest.
Dr. Nicole Keller: On what charges?
Olivia Benson: Third degree rape of a minor.
Dr. Nicole Keller: I'm the victim here.
Olivia Benson: And murder.
Dr. Nicole Keller: Murder? I didn't murder anyone.
Odafin Tutuola: [handcuffing her] Look, lady. Turn around. Come on.
Olivia Benson: Get her out of here.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: PTSD (#10.9)" (2008)
Donald Cragen: Do we have any idea where this Marine was killed?
Odafin Tutuola: A large pool of blood was found in Battery Park. The lab's testing it now.
Donald Cragen: She was stationed in North Carolina. What was she doing in New York?
Detective Olivia Benson: She went AWOL to join a therapy group that specializes in treating military rape victims with PTSD.
Donald Cragen: That's a long way to travel for therapy.
Odafin Tutuola: It's a long waiting list, and returning vets need help now.

Donald Cragen: What do we know about the sexual assault?
Detective Olivia Benson: Next to nothing. She was raped in Iraq and couldn't, or wouldn't, identify her attacker.
John Munch: Let me guess, the military will not release an active file.
Odafin Tutuola: Well, if it happened in-country, it had to be somebody she worked with.
Donald Cragen: What unit was she assigned to?
John Munch: A squadron in the 2nd Airwing. Maintenance on light attack helicopters.
Odafin Tutuola: Okay, there's fifteen helos per squadron.
John Munch: So?
Odafin Tutuola: Cobra gets a three-man maintenance team to work on engines, navi, weapon systems, and ordnance. Plus there's two pilots and door gunner per bird.
Detective Olivia Benson: That's over seventy-five suspects.
Donald Cragen: Then narrow it down. Go back to the therapist, see if the victim gave her a name.

Odafin Tutuola: What's our next move?
Detective Olivia Benson: Talk to one of the patients from Jessie's support group.
Odafin Tutuola: The shrink won't tell you about the rape. What makes you think she's gonna give up her patient list?
Detective Olivia Benson: I don't need it. I already know who to talk to.
Odafin Tutuola: Does anyone else know you're in therapy?
Detective Olivia Benson: No.
Odafin Tutuola: Then they won't hear it from me.

Donald Cragen: Pruitt's about to ship out again. You think he raped any others?
Odafin Tutuola: There's no record of sexual assault.
Detective Olivia Benson: That means nothing. When women refuse to serve with the men who rape them, they get court-martialed for desertion, dereliction, conduct unbecoming. I mean, their files get red flagged and the men who raped them get a weekend pass.
Donald Cragen: He passed a polygraph, Olivia.
Detective Olivia Benson: Any psycho can do that.

Odafin Tutuola: We should probably figure the best way to talk to Pruitt.
Detective Olivia Benson: Put him in the box and sweat him.
Odafin Tutuola: He's not like a normal hump we pick up off the street. Pruitt's not just gonna start spilling his guts. They train him not to.
Detective Olivia Benson: Look, he's gonna cooperate or he's gonna sit in a cell.
Odafin Tutuola: Sounds like you've already decided he's guilty.
Detective Olivia Benson: 'Cause that's how it looks.

Odafin Tutuola: I can't let you question the suspect.
Detective Olivia Benson: I'm fine, Fin.
Odafin Tutuola: You held your gun to the back of a man's head. Do you have any idea how much trouble you're in?
Detective Olivia Benson: You reported me?
Odafin Tutuola: No, I'm talking about you getting your head together.
Detective Olivia Benson: I am working on it.
Odafin Tutuola: Are you? Seems like you even have issues with your shrink. You need to talk to someone.
Detective Olivia Benson: The only person that I'm interested in talking to is the man who raped and killed Jessica Crewes. We need to find that baby.
Odafin Tutuola: If I let you do this, I'm sitting in.
Detective Olivia Benson: Look, I'm okay!
Odafin Tutuola: No, no, no. It's either me or it's Cragen. You choose.

Odafin Tutuola: How'd it go?
Detective Olivia Benson: Better than I thought. Pruitt's attorney didn't mention the fact that I held a gun to his client's head.
Odafin Tutuola: It had nothing to do with Jessie's murder.
Detective Olivia Benson: Defense attorneys find every weakness. That's what they do
Odafin Tutuola: I get you not wanting people to know that you're in therapy.
Detective Olivia Benson: Ah, well, I may not have a choice.
Odafin Tutuola: As long as you work at it, the flashbacks will go away. Did for me.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Careless (#5.18)" (2004)
Lori-Ann Dufoy: Who do you think the jury's going to believe, me, or some delinquent?
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: When they see how you grated Megan's face, they ain't gonna believe you.
Lori-Ann Dufoy: Megan did it to herself, she's crazy.
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Yeah and Jamie smothered himself.

Dr. Melinda Warner: Are you okay?
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: I'm cool.
Dr. Melinda Warner: I know, but are you okay?

[last lines]
Capt. Donald Cragen: Are you okay?
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: I'm cool.

Olivia Benson: It's 4:45. I've got to be in court in four hours.
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Okay, you go ahead. It's about time Munch got his bony ass out of bed for some religion.

Tamara Semple: My son's poor, dead little body is at her door. She's gonna pay for it and ACS is gonna pay for it. The city is gonna pay for it.
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: That's not gonna bring Jamie back.
Tamara Semple: Have you ever lost a child? You think this is about money?

Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: [when Mariel Plummer gets a threatening phone call] Who the hell are you calling a bitch? This is the police. Ring this number again, we're gonna come bust in your damn door!

Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: [to Lori-Ann] You took in runaways, treat them like crap so they'd run away again or did Sam just kill them?
Lori-Ann Dufoy: No! Nobody else would touch these kids!
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Well, somebody touched Megan Rose with a cheese grater!
Lori-Ann Dufoy: What are you talking about?
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: [shows Lori-Ann a photo] This is Megan Rose's blood and it damn sure isn't six months old. She was in your home the week Jamie died. She see Sam kill him?
Lori-Ann Dufoy: I swear Megan was gone or maybe she came back, I don't know. I work so many hours at the store...
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: If she came back, where is she now?
Lori-Ann Dufoy: You're trying to get me to hurt Sam, but I won't.
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Just tell us where Megan is!
Lori-Ann Dufoy: I said I don't know!


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Cold (#9.19)" (2008)
Odafin Tutuola: [to Elliot] Do you know everything about Olivia?
Elliot Stabler: No, but I'd notice if she disappeared once a month.

Chester Lake: I'm not used to sitting to take a leak.
Odafin Tutuola: That's the price of turning a vacant lot into OK Corral.

Odafin Tutuola: [to Lake] What's going on in Philly?
Chester Lake: Really good cheesesteaks.

Odafin Tutuola: Dumping my phones was a bitch move, Stabler.
Elliot Stabler: Yeah, I called him. I didn't think he'd run.
Odafin Tutuola: You should've stayed out of it.
Olivia Benson: Take it easy.
Odafin Tutuola: He's my partner.
Elliot Stabler: Who you helped evade arrest.
Donald Cragen: Dial it down or you're both going on report.

Donald Cragen: Lake is not our problem anymore. The Fugitive Apprehension Team will take it from here.
Odafin Tutuola: All those guys do is workout and shoot guns. They're gonna kill Lake.
Donald Cragen: Well, that's not how F.A.T. works, Detective.
Odafin Tutuola: Kralik's got a lot of friends on the street that'd like to see Lake dead. You gotta at least let me look.
Elliot Stabler: Where you gonna start? You don't even know the guy.
Odafin Tutuola: I know he didn't do it.
Elliot Stabler: Three bullet holes in the victim's back say different.
Odafin Tutuola: You ever think the force behind the first two spun Kralik? We're trained to keep firing till the subject is down.

Odafin Tutuola: News reports are saying Lake took a hostage. Who gave them that?
Elliot Stabler: How about your partner after he took Cecelia Cruz with a warrant on his ass?

Elliot Stabler: [to Fin] Look, the situation got a little heated and I want to say I'm sorry about that.
Odafin Tutuola: You're a bulldog, Stabler. Quick to assume, slow to admit when you're wrong. Makes for a good cop, but a lousy human being
Olivia Benson: Fin, hear him out.
Odafin Tutuola: Stay out of it, Liv. That being said, I know what it cost you.
Elliot Stabler: Appreciate that.
Odafin Tutuola: I'm not done. The problem is you will still be the same rat bastard tomorrow and nothing you say will ever change that.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Lust (#4.4)" (2002)
[Munch is cuddling a victim's dog and annoying Fin]
Odafin Tutuola: I told you you should have left that mutt in the car.
Det. John Munch: Do you know how many dogs die in locked cars every year?
Odafin Tutuola: Know how many cops shoot their partners and get off on justifiable?

Det. John Munch: Me, I just get a little nervous when the government starts drawing up lists.
Det. Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Please don't get him started. He goes off on black helicopters and we'll be here all night.

Det. Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: You better remember quick before we haul your sweet ass down to the precinct.

Miss Kittie: Am I under arrest?
[starts to rub Fin's cheek]
Fin Tutuola: Keep touching me, you will be.

Det. Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: [to someone in forensics] Skip the science test. Did it match?

Secretary: We don't take walk-ins. You need a referral.
Det. Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: [shows her his badge] We got a special pass.
Secretary: [as they start to walk into the office] You can't go in there!
Det. John Munch: Sure we can.

Det. John Munch: Where'd you go two nights ago?
Miss Kittie: Chez Marco. I met him there at 9:00. Do you want to know what I ate?
Det. Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: I'm not touching that one.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Great Expectations (#18.11)" (2017)
Coach Gordon Sheen: Poor kid. I hope he's gonna be okay.
Amanda Rollins: Well, he's recovering. It's a serious injury.
Coach Gordon Sheen: What makes you think it was one of my players? Could it have been someone from the Squalls or a Whitecaps player in a different division?
Odafin Tutuola: Division?
Coach Gordon Sheen: Yeah, there are ten Whitecaps squads, separated by age and skill level. Mites, squirts, peewee.
Amanda Rollins: Okay, but right now we need to focus on your kids.
Coach Gordon Sheen: Sure, but I mean, we compete for the New York State Championship every year.
Odafin Tutuola: So?
Coach Gordon Sheen: So none of my boys would jeopardize that by doing something this stupid.

Odafin Tutuola: Any troublemakers on your team?
Coach Gordon Sheen: Have you ever traveled on a bus four and a half hours full of thirteen year olds? They're all troublemakers.
Odafin Tutuola: I mean repeat offenders. Kids that like to do stupid things.
Coach Gordon Sheen: [reluctant to say anything] Um...
Odafin Tutuola: Look, coach, I know you don't want to give up any of your players, but, uh, you got to cooperate.
Coach Gordon Sheen: Come on.
[he sighs]
Coach Gordon Sheen: Fine. Timmy Brown and Will Harris. They're wild. The boys call them the Bash Brothers 'cause the tend to get a little rough. But... but they've never done anything like what happened to Jack. It... they wouldn't last in this program. It's in violation of their contract.
Odafin Tutuola: Their what?
Coach Gordon Sheen: Their contract. It lays out our code of ethics. Every player signs one. So it couldn't have been a Whitecap.

Olivia Benson: Hey, where are we with these Bang Brothers?
Odafin Tutuola: The Bash Brothers. Like McGwire and Canseco.
Dominick Carisi Jr.: No, like Reed and Portman.
[seeing Fin and Benson's blank looks]
Dominick Carisi Jr.: "Mighty Ducks 2"? Never mind. Anyway, these guys have never been in trouble with the law. They've got no juvenile records.
Olivia Benson: Okay. You checked the, uh... their contracts?
Odafin Tutuola: All signed and notarized. A lot of rules for an eighth grader.

Amanda Rollins: So, I've been taking a look at the security footage from the rink. Look. Here are players leaving the locker room, right? Most exit at the same time. But this is the last kid before... look; these two. Numbers 26 and 9. And they're hauling ass, too. It's ten seconds before our victim, Jack, comes out.
Odafin Tutuola: How can you tell that's him? You can't make out his face.
Amanda Rollins: Look. Look there, the sleeve. You see that? Number 14. That's Jack's number.
Olivia Benson: Who are these two kids that came out before him?
Dominick Carisi Jr.: [looking at the team roster] Number 9, William Harris. Number 26, Timothy Brown. The Bash Brothers.
Olivia Benson: Okay. Bring 'em in. This wasn't a couple of kids playing grab-ass. We need answers.

Amanda Rollins: So, Jack, we talked to Timmy and Will and they told us what really happened.
Odafin Tutuola: We just need to hear it from you.
Jack Wilson: I don't know what you're talking about.
Odafin Tutuola: Look, man, I get it, okay? These are your teammates, your friends, and you don't want to rat 'em out.
Amanda Rollins: But that's not what you're gonna be doing, because we already know who did it. He was at the precinct hours ago and he feels terrible about what happened.
Jack Wilson: You talked to Kyle?
Linda Wilson: Kyle? Kyle Turner? You said you didn't see who attacked you. Oh, it can't be. Timmy and Will, they... sure, they're idiots. But Jack and Kyle have known each other since kindergarten. They're inseparable.
Frank Wilson: You guys are sure it was him?
Odafin Tutuola: Yeah, we're sure.
Amanda Rollins: But we do need your son to confirm it.
Frank Wilson: Forget about the team, Jack. Just... go ahead and tell them.
Jack Wilson: I've never seen him like that before.
Amanda Rollins: Who?
Jack Wilson: Kyle, okay? Kyle. It was like he was this whole other person. Timmy and Will grabbed me. I couldn't move. Couldn't fight back. Suddenly, Kyle had the stick. And he looked at me all crazy and he... and I just... I don't know. And then it was over.

Jim Turner: This is just a misunderstanding. That's all. How do we make it go away?
Amanda Rollins: We don't. We can't. But we might be able to find a way to make his punishment less severe.
Jim Turner: How?
Amanda Rollins: You admit to abusing Kyle.
Jim Turner: Excuse me?
[seeing her stoic expression, he scoffs]
Jim Turner: Look, my parenting style might be old school, but I'm never physical. Kyle wants to be a great player. I know how to get him there. Came close to playing pro myself.
Amanda Rollins: How do you explain the spiral fractures, all those untreated injuries?
Jim Turner: He's a hockey player. Sometimes he gets hurt. But he plays through the pain. He doesn't complain like most of his pansy friends. That's just who he is.
Olivia Benson: [watching in the observation room] Well, we tried. I mean, clearly this family is not gonna budge.
Odafin Tutuola: So what do you want to do?

Odafin Tutuola: Nice story, man. I didn't know you were so quick on your feet.
Dominick Carisi Jr.: You gotta do what you gotta do, right?
Odafin Tutuola: That's right.
Amanda Rollins: You didn't make that up, though, did you? That really happened to you, didn't it?


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Fight (#9.8)" (2007)
Janelle Odami: The teacher said they were geniuses.
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: They must of got it from their father's side.
Janelle Odami: Hey, Uncle Tom, what's it like in the house?
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Least I ain't sellin' it! Damn, white, black, I'm gettin' it from all sides today.
Detective Chester Lake: Hey man, her pimp called me a Mexican.
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Is that good or bad?

Latrice Munez: Look at you throwing gang, Papi. Like you know your thing.
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Little girl, I was through with it before you knew what to do with it.

Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: [to Lake] Now the only naptime you get is when you fall asleep at your desk.

Traci Bell: [to Fin] Are you calling me a gold digger?
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: No, I'm calling you cold. Your fiance raped and murdered a young girl and you don't give a damn.

Ezra Odami: You gotta believe me. J-Mac killed Julie.
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: If J-Mac's the killer, I suppose we gotta led Jadon go.
Ezra Odami: Really?
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: For a smart kid, you're really stupid.

Detective Chester Lake: I don't think those boys had anything to do with Julie Donovan's murder.
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: I swear I didn't see him smoking crack.

Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: [to Janelle Odami] What kind of piece of trash mother lets her kids get taken away over and over again, then when she finally gets a chance to help them, she turns her back?
Janelle Odami: Don't you dare talk to me like you know what I've been through. Every time Children's Services snatched my boys, it took all I had not to kill myself the second the door shut behind them.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Baggage (#10.18)" (2009)
Elliot Stabler: [to Moran] You know, funny thing. When I ran the M.O. through VICAP, none of your three cases came up.
Detective Victor Moran: I blocked your access.
Odafin Tutuola: A glory hog.
Detective Victor Moran: It's not about me. It's about them.

Stefan Henriquez: I think I need a lawyer.
Odafin Tutuola: For what? You're guilt-free.
Stefan Henriquez: I'm getting a raw deal.
Elliot Stabler: No, raw's what happens in lockdown when the lights go out.
Stefan Henriquez: Shut up. Just leave me alone.
Elliot Stabler: [starts getting close to Stefan] You did it to your victims, now somebody's going to do it to you.
Stefan Henriquez: Don't touch me.
Elliot Stabler: Shh. Don't say that. And never fight back when they come for you. That's exactly how it happens.
Stefan Henriquez: Let go of me.
Elliot Stabler: You'll never know what hit you, but you better get used to this position, 'cause they like to come back, over and over again.
Stefan Henriquez: [crying] Get off me!
Odafin Tutuola: We're going to need a mop.
[it is shown that Stefan has wet himself]

Donald Cragen: [to Stabler after he interrogates Stefan Henriques] What the hell was that?
Elliot Stabler: Social workers put it in his file. His biggest fear is prison. We figured stick first, carrot later.
Donald Cragen: Well, that stunt is grounds for an assault charge while in custody.
Odafin Tutuola: I'd like to see his lawyers try.
Donald Cragen: He did ask for one.
Alexandra Cabot: Well, thinking you need a lawyer and asking for one is debatable. He's an idiot, but is he guilty?

Chief of Detectives: [to Cragen] You want to tell me what the hell's going on? I'm pretty sure I took you off this case.
Donald Cragen: We had a lead and ran it.
Chief of Detectives: Without informing Moran.
Elliot Stabler: Guy says he likes to work alone.
Chief of Detectives: I don't believe I was talking to you, Detective. Well, the word is out. The press blindsided me about a serial killer loose in the city and the DNA he left behind.
Donald Cragen: Then we have a leak.
Chief of Detectives: Come on. You're pissed off. This is SVU grandstanding and now you've got a pooch-screw.
Donald Cragen: It's anything but, sir. And in case you're interested, we have a suspect in custody.
Chief of Detectives: Did he confess?
Odafin Tutuola: We're still talking to him.
Chief of Detectives: Which means no.
Elliot Stabler: We'll get it done, Chief.
Chief of Detectives: You didn't even know about the other victims until Moran set you straight. He linked these cases together on his own time with a kid in the hospital.
Odafin Tutuola: What do you want us to do?
Chief of Detectives: Bring him up to speed. Then mind your own damn business.

John Munch: This is not right.
Odafin Tutuola: Six dead women, Munch.
John Munch: That man had a genetic test to establish paternity and we used the results without his consent to try and catch a killer.
Odafin Tutuola: Uh-huh.
John Munch: That's invasion of privacy, man.
Odafin Tutuola: Six dead women, Munch. Let's go.

Donald Cragen: There's no prints on the kiln. We can't even prove Ocurro touched it.
Odafin Tutuola: Yes, we can. The power company just confirmed Casey Chapman's kilowatt hours doubled the day of her murder.
Detective Victor Moran: Ocurro's alibi just went up in flames. He was with his mother on Sunday. Casey Chapman was murdered on Monday night. Then, he turned on the kiln to accelerate decomp.
Elliot Stabler: Making Warner think that the murder happened much earlier.
Donald Cragen: And making our killer think he got away with it.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Secrets (#2.12)" (2001)
[after running down a suspect]
Fin Tutuola: Make me run on my bad knee.

Detective John Munch: [to Fin] I'm sure you have many secrets.
Fin Tutuola: I'm a Republican.

Fin Tutuola: Did your dad abuse Marnie?
Jordan Owens: He never laid a hand on her. But he couldn't stop staring at her chest, and he couldn't keep his mouth shut about how beautiful it was.

Detective John Munch: One time when I was working in Baltimore, I walk in and say 'What's up?', everybody's looking at me like my fly's open. Turns out there's a new art gallery across the street run by one of my ex-girlfriends, center piece is a wall size picture of yours truly from my free love days, au natural.
Fin Tutuola: Serves you right for posing in the first place.

Dr. Bennett Alston: These people don't enjoy sex, they're numb.
Fin Tutuola: Just like alcoholics, heroin addicts, people who bet the house on the ponies.
Dr. Bennett Alston: And people with these addictions are seen as having a disorder, but when you need sex 3 times a day, you're seen as a pervert.

Detective John Munch: We're talking about victimless crime.
Fin Tutuola: Unless you're Marnie Owens.
Detective John Munch: Marnie Owens' problem wasn't that she had group sex. It was that she couldn't stop herself.
Fin Tutuola: We got 14 others here from Dante's. What's their excuse?
Detective John Munch: You mean the fireman, the accountant, the director of human resources? All consenting adults, behind closed doors, nobody gets hurt? They don't need an excuse.
Fin Tutuola: That's easy for you to say, Mr. Letting-It-All-Hang-Out-At-Some-Art-Gallery.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Poisoned Motive (#14.22)" (2013)
Mrs. Chang: Twenty people in my cell. The toilet is disgusting.
Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Hope you enjoyed it. That's five stars compared to where you're going.

Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: You were right about Earl. Couldn't shoot himself in the foot if he had a shotgun taped to his ankle.

Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: [to Amaro] We were making our last buy from Escobar. Somebody must've ratted me out. Next thing I know, I got a .38 to the back of my head. Luis jumped in, the gun went off. He got hit twice in the hip and the knee. I left Narcotics that day.
Detective Nick Amaro: That wasn't your fault.
Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Yeah, just like it wasn't my fault with Rollins. Do yourself a favor, Nick. Walk behind me.

Captain Donald Cragen: [about Gloria] Her mother just died. She was having problems with the insurance.
Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Come on, everybody has problems with the insurance. I'm sick that it's him, but we got our man.
Amanda Rollins: There's something else. The motives, it just...
Olivia Benson: Well, he's angry. You heard him.
Detective Nick Amaro: Yeah, at Fin, at Escobar, the lieutenant...
Amanda Rollins: Then how come none of them are the ones that got hit? The targets are always next of kin, partners. You know, maybe she is trying to make the people she's angry at hurt the way she got hurt when her father got shot.
Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Not Gloria. She's a sweet kid.
Captain Donald Cragen: Oh, boy. Did you know she was kicked out of the academy on psychological two months ago?

Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Your father's a good man, Gloria. If it wasn't for him, I would've never saw my son grow up.
Gloria Montero: Because of you and the NYPD, my father lost everything: this house, my mother...
Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: What happened to your family, I didn't know. I should have. I should have stayed in touch.
Gloria Montero: You didn't call, you didn't care. You didn't even know my mother was sick.
Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: I didn't wanna talk to your father, okay? You're right, I was guilty. I didn't wanna think that what happened to him could've been me. Gloria, I can't undo what happened. I can't make it better.

Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Amanda, you shouldn't even be here.
Amanda Rollins: Once I heard you went inside, I had to come. You were there for me when...
Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: When you took the bullet for me?
Amanda Rollins: Yeah, you'd do the same. It's what partners do.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Care (#3.9)" (2001)
Fin Tutuola: Why do we always get stuck looking for the needle in the haystack?
John Munch: Takes me back to the Easter egg hunts of my youth.
Fin Tutuola: You're Jewish, your parents hid eggs?
John Munch: My point exactly, all those futile hours of searching.

Fin Tutuola: Now if you were still a bright eyed little kid, what would that look like to you?
John Munch: A death trap.
Fin Tutuola: You're pathetic; that's the coolest fort ever.
John Munch: You had a traumatic childhood too, huh Sherlock?

[Fin finds a knife]
Fin Tutuola: Do you think this is sharp enough to cut a lop of hair?
John Munch: Well if it is, you win the chocolate bunny.

John Munch: [while Fin and Munch are playing video games] Damn it!
Fin Tutuola: Pathetic. Give me that. Show you how to do this.
Donald Cragen: Maybe we should rethink the squad room video arcade.

Alexandra Cabot: Who died?
Elliot Stabler: Dorothy Rudd.
Alexandra Cabot: Please tell me you're kidding.
John Munch: Just got a call from Rikers. Massive heart attack.
Fin Tutuola: Bitch didn't even suffer.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Screwed (#8.22)" (2007)
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: You told Darius about the drugs and the gun, didn't you?
Ken Randall: Ten years ago! I mean, I looked in the glove box and found the stash. As usual, you screamed at me. I was ten.
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: There you go again. Will you change the channel?
Ken Randall: That, that right there is why I always went to Darius. Mom was so busy blaming you and you were so busy working, there was no one to hear me. How could I know he'd use it against you? How could I know he'd have a reason to?
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: [yells] I wasn't there for you. Okay, you're angry. I get it. Get over it, man! Get a therapist, work it out. I'm not trying to hear this right now!

Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: The hell you doin' here, Ken?
Ken Randall: It's Mom. She got served a subpoena. She's talking about running.
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: She already knows. She runs, she goes to jail.
Ken Randall: So it's not your problem?
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: What the hell do you want from me? I gotta do my job, I gotta keep my head down 'cause your brother's on trial for murder and dodge the press at the same time. I'm sorry if I don't give a damn if your mother gets locked up.

Detective John Munch: [about Terry] She was raped.
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: She told you that?
Detective John Munch: She didn't have to. How many victims have we seen who act just like her?

Chester Lake: [to Fin] Hiding out?
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: A drug dealing hump's conviction just got overturned and I look like a dirty doped-up cop.
Chester Lake: Narco cops fail drug tests all the time.
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: I tested dirty 'cause I sat in cramped rooms with drug dealers who sampled their own product. When I got buzzed, it went into my red book.
Chester Lake: Tyrone Hart's not walking 'cause you got a contact high, Fin.
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: I'd been up 36 hours when I pinched that bastard with heavy eight. I took his guns, his personal stash. Then I got a call to meet a mark that we'd been dangling for a while.
Chester Lake: Why didn't your handler send someone else?
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Buyers already knew me. New face would have blown the deal, so I made the meet, then I went home and I crashed out.
Chester Lake: With the guns and the stash still in your car.
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Next thing I know, my kid's got the glove box open, a gun in his hand. Ken told Darius and he screwed me on the stand.

Darius Parker: [to Fin] You got something to say to me?
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Sooner or later, you'll be back here or dead.
Darius Parker: Sounds like wishful thinking to me. Get in line.
[to Ken]
Darius Parker: And what about you?
Ken Randall: I don't know what to feel.
Darius Parker: Do what I do. Feel nothing.
Ken Randall: I don't believe that, Darius. Man, Mom said...
Darius Parker: Mom said what, man? The bitch lied. Come on, man. You're too old to be this gullible, Ken.
Ken Randall: I stuck by you.
Darius Parker: What do you want, a medal?
Ken Randall: I can't do it anymore.
Darius Parker: Yeah, well, me either. I don't want to know any of you.
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: You didn't get a free pass today.
Darius Parker: Always the cop. So what you gonna do? You gonna follow me for the rest of my life?
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: I don't need to do that, Darius. I'll never think about you again.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Counterfeit (#3.14)" (2002)
Fin Tutuola: Alright. Nice dress.
Olivia Benson: Yeah, well, it was a nice date. Where's Munch?
Fin Tutuola: He rang in sick.
Olivia Benson: He's such a hypochondriac. How many times has he had anthrax this week?

[Munch walks by on crutches]
Fin Tutuola: I can't wait to hear this.
John Munch: Your sympathy is overwhelming.
Olivia Benson: What happened to you?
John Munch: Skydiving, hard landing.
Elliot Stabler: He wiped out riding his friend's Harley.
Capt. Donald Cragen: Now the only thing he'll be riding is a desk.

Olivia Benson: Were you a car thief in a former life?
Fin Tutuola: No baby, Boy Scout - always prepared.

Fin Tutuola: Who's side are you on?
Olivia Benson: The victim's. Which is where we should be.

Fin Tutuola: You don't know someone, 'til you work with them.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Scorched Earth (#13.1)" (2011)
Roberto Distasio: You lock me up on the word of a maid?
Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: [closes cell door] My grandmother was a maid.

Captain Donald Cragen: [to Fin about Distasio] You and Liv take him out the side exit. No cameras, no perp walk.
Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: No doubt. We're professionals, Captain.

Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: [escorting Distasio through a media perpwalk] Freedom of the press, baby.

Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Elliot's probably afraid to talk to you, Liv. Doesn't want you to try to talk him out of it.
Olivia Benson: Out of what? He's not gonna quit.
Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: He shot a teenage girl. He may not ever wanna put his gun on again.

Olivia Benson: [about Miriam] She brought it on herself. She lied repeatedly.
Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: She did whatever she had to do to get asylum.
Olivia Benson: Maybe. Her testimony about the gang rape... you know, it's one thing to be consistent, it's another to quote verbatim.
Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Everybody's ripping into her. What's up with you? You telling me you don't think he's good for it?


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Maternal Instincts (#17.6)" (2015)
Odafin Tutuola: That girl drugged him, played his flute and stole his flute.

Odafin Tutuola: [to Amanda after it's discovered Amanda's sister, Kim stole a famous musician's instrument] If you try to help her now, she's gonna take you down for good and you got to tell Liv.
Amanda Rollins: I can't. Especially not with mini-Dodds hovering around. He'd go straight to his daddy or IAB.

Odafin Tutuola: [to Olivia:] The DNA reports just came in. Anton raped Alessandra, so he's done and we're done.
Olivia Benson: Okay, it's Dodds' first week. I can't shut down every idea that he has.
Odafin Tutuola: I'll do it.
Olivia Benson: Fin, I asked you to take the sergeant's exam. You told me you that you wanted no part it, okay, so here's where we are.

Olivia Benson: [to Rollins] You recognized your sister in the surveillance video from the pawn shop and you decided to keep it to yourself.
Amanda Rollins: Because I thought the best thing would be to set up a meeting so that I could walk her in without a struggle.
Odafin Tutuola: But she never showed, right?
Amanda Rollins: No, yeah, Fin, she did. It's okay. She did show up, but she just wouldn't listen to me.
Olivia Benson: So you just let her go?
Amanda Rollins: Well, I couldn't run after her and it's not like I'm gonna pull a gun in the park and shoot my sister while my mom's on her way back from getting mimosas.

Olivia Benson: [to Rollins] And where is your sister now?
Amanda Rollins: She said she was going to disappear.
Odafin Tutuola: Good luck. Little Dodds is like a dog with a bone over this.
Amanda Rollins: [to Olivia] Can you call that guy off? 'Cause the last thing I need is him ratting me out to Dodds Senior.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Disabled (#11.17)" (2010)
CSU Captain Judith Siper: [to Fin about Damien] You think he sexually abused his quadriplegic aunt?
Odafin Tutuola: If that's her blood on his shirt, I'll put Bigfoot in a cage myself.

Janice Raleigh: I didn't do anything.
Odafin Tutuola: Yeah, shut up. I got you on tape beating your sister down with bars of soap. I should whup you to see how you like it.

Odafin Tutuola: [to Damien] How much money did Janice take?
Damien Woods: Almost 60 grand.
Odafin Tutuola: Well, that sounds bad to me. What's she got to do to make you face it?
Damien Woods: My aunt doesn't blame her, so why should l? Growing up, they didn't have much, but whenever Cara needed something, she got it.
Olivia Benson: That doesn't give her the right to beat Cara with soap and skim her bank accounts.
Damien Woods: So what happens now?
Olivia Benson: Your mom is going to prison and unless you tell us the truth, a rapist goes free.

Damien Woods: [When Damien assaults Griegs on the ParaBus and Fin is called to the scene]
[to Griegs]
Damien Woods: I should rip your neck off!
Odafin Tutuola: Damien, open the door.
Damien Woods: No, I'm not done!
Odafin Tutuola: Come on, don't be a knucklehead. What would Cara think if she saw you?
Damien Woods: She'll smile through her eyes because I'm doing what you can't. I'm getting her justice!
Odafin Tutuola: And will it be justice when you get a murder rap?
Damien Woods: Who cares?
Odafin Tutuola: I do. Come on, man. Open this door.
Damien Woods: He raped my aunt. He's gonna pay!
Odafin Tutuola: And then Cara even pays more. She wants to go home, Damien, but she can't if there's nothing to go home to. Come on, man. Open the door.
[Damien lets Griegs off the bus]
Odafin Tutuola: You feel better?
Damien Woods: I had to do something. Had to make it right. What would you do if it was you?

Elliot Stabler: [to Fin] Answer me this. Why are you sticking your neck out? You don't even know this kid.
Odafin Tutuola: When I was in the academy, I had to put my grandfather into a nursing home. Man practically raised me. It was the worst decision I ever made.
Elliot Stabler: Nursing home abused him?
Odafin Tutuola: Yeah, I'm a cop and I didn't recognize the signs until it was too late. When he died, I lost it. I threatened the nursing staff, started fights for the hell of it. I almost got kicked off the force.
Elliot Stabler: Guilt will eat you alive.
Odafin Tutuola: Yeah, an academy instructor set me straight. Kept bailing my ass out of trouble. Figure it's time I return the favor.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Intimidation Game (#16.14)" (2015)
Olivia Benson: Okay, this girl...
Amanda Rollins: Sarah Keller, 22.
Odafin Tutuola: She works for Raina Punjabi, the game developer.
Olivia Benson: Okay. And this girl was attacked at the what, again?
Odafin Tutuola: The IVL Finals. the International Video Game League
Amanda Rollins: It's like March Madness, but for video games.
Odafin Tutuola: I go every year. Nothing like this has ever happened.
Amanda Rollins: Right. But Sarah told me that the guys who did this don't like women in gaming.
Odafin Tutuola: Well, in their world, a developer's like God. And some guys aren't ready to give a girl that power.
Olivia Benson: Okay. Does Sarah know her attacker?
Amanda Rollins: No. Well. maybe. Uh, Carisi stayed behind to cull the security footage.
Olivia Benson: [to Fin] Hold on? You got Rollins and Carisi in on this? On a Sunday?
[Fin smirks]
Olivia Benson: Never mind. Okay, I'm not going to understand a word, uh, that anybody's saying about this, so, uh, Fin, why don't you come with me to interview Sarah. And Rollins, I want you to follow up with Carisi at the... whatever it is.

Dominick Carisi, Jr.: This is awesome. This is, this is better than Comic-Con.
Amanda Rollins: Really?
Dominick Carisi, Jr.: Yeah.
Odafin Tutuola: Wait till you see the main event. These teams practice eight hours a day. They are not noobs
Amanda Rollins: Noobs?
Odafin Tutuola: Short for "newbies."
Dominick Carisi, Jr.: Oh, yeah. That's much shorter.

Olivia Benson: [to Fin] So 20 years of gaming or whatever it is you do with that controller finally paid off.
Odafin Tutuola: See, I know the difference between video games and reality. Those guys didn't.

Amanda Rollins: [to Fin:] So you spend all day with a gun in your holster and you still go home and play, like, shoot-'em-up games after work.
Odafin Tutuola: Sometimes all night.
Amanda Rollins: What am I missing here?
Odafin Tutuola: See, at work, I got One P.P., I got Barba, they get in my way. At home, it's just me and my clan. It's simple: no gray. Just shoot the other team. Go get the bad guy.

Odafin Tutuola: [after Raina gets SWATed during an interview] These got a hundred ways to handle this situation. They always use one: bang down the damn doors.
Amanda Rollins: They're just doing their job, Fin.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Confession (#10.2)" (2008)
Jake Berlin: He tried to kill me!
Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: A little plastic, a few shovels, sounds like a good idea to me.

Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Sweet meat, that's what they're going to call you when they reach for you in the dark.

Sean Kelley: [to Fin] What? Don't tell me you never self-served.
Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Not in my son's shirt.

Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: [to Greylek] There something you want to get off your chest?
Kim Greylek: I've been dismissed, overlooked and ignored. I deserve to be taken seriously.

Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: [to Olivia] I don't know how he did it, but the man showed restraint.
Detective Olivia Benson: What are you talking about?
Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: You know that bastards like Berlin get off on little kids and you know exactly what they do when they're having their little fantasies. If that was my kid, I would have done him.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Criminal Hatred (#14.12)" (2013)
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: [at a strip club] I'm confused about the naked fashion shows, if they don't have any clothes on...

A.D.A. Rafael Barba: Find out if he has any female victims.
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: [to Rollins] Back to Hunk Night.

Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: The only thing worse than he said/she said is he said/he said.

Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: [while going undercover] Hey, come on, Nick, you gotta neaten it up, man. You can't be all messy cruising a gay bar.
Nick Amaro: Hey, we can't all look like Al Sharpton.

Detective Olivia Benson: Cragen's at one PP. They would like to know how this could have happened when we were on the scene.
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Maybe because there's four of us and 400 gay bars?


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Fashionable Crimes (#17.20)" (2016)
Olivia Benson: How was the training at Quantico?
Mike Dodds: I can neither confirm nor deny I was there.
Olivia Benson: Okay.
Mike Dodds: Sorry I left you guys in the lurch.
Odafin Tutuola: We managed.

Odafin Tutuola: Is this art or porn?
Mike Dodds: Depends on how much you pay for it.

Olivia Benson: Three days, two dozen interviews. At least half of these models admit to being pressured into sex.
Odafin Tutuola: None of them will testify.
Rafael Barba: But what about the vic from twelve years ago?
John Munch: That story has a happy ending. She's pimping for him now.

Olivia Benson: Right there when Alvin turns around, the look on his face when he sees the shooter.
Mike Dodds: He knows him. He's not afraid of him.
Odafin Tutuola: [his phone chimes] Unis found a gun on the roof, a .357 Magnum.
Olivia Benson: .357? That's old school.
Odafin Tutuola: Yeah, it is. Just like Alvin's.
Rafael Barba: Wha... Alvin was shot with his own gun?
Olivia Benson: Maybe. By someone he knew. By someone he was happy to see.
Mike Dodds: We got this all wrong. It's not the guy who was shaking Alvin down.
Olivia Benson: It's the guy who's been cleaning up his messes.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Rescue (#12.10)" (2010)
Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: So you invited "that bitch" to the party to teach her a lesson after she couldn't keep her big mouth shut about your little weenie?

Mrs. Donoho: You know, I just can't believe the NYPD responds like this for one stolen ring.
Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Ma'am, we take crime very seriously.

Donald Cragen: [to Olivia] What the hell were you doing? Could I have been any clearer about you standing down?
Olivia Benson: I'm sorry.
Donald Cragen: Sorry is not even In the ballpark of where you need to be.
Elliot Stabler: What are we doing? She's the one who collared Vivian. Isn't that what we wanted?
Donald Cragen: You think you're gonna escape a rip here? You defied a direct order just like she did.
[to Fin and Munch]
Donald Cragen: And you two knew she was AWOL and you called him, not me.
Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: We just tried to make the play, Captain.
Olivia Benson: This is on me. It's not on them.
Donald Cragen: Playing the martyr is not gonna work here. Everybody's getting burned this time.

Elliot Stabler: So Sarah killed Burlock for raping Vivian's mother and now Gambel kills Sarah for murdering his master.
Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Even in death, Burlock still has an iron grip on his prison bitch.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Manhunt (#2.18)" (2001)
John Munch: So why'd you leave narcotics?
Fin Tutuola: My partner took a bullet that was meant for me, kinda took all the fun out of it.

Odafin Tutuola: Even Aunt Mary thinks he's a hero.
John Munch: Yeah well Aunt Mary is a few tea bags shy of a full pot.

Fin Tutuola: The Bowery Stalker.
John Munch: One and the same.
Fin Tutuola: I haven't heard about this guy for a long time.
John Munch: Not long enough.

Fin Tutuola: I wonder how long this guy will keep his victim alive?
John Munch: Until he's finished with her.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Denial (#3.21)" (2002)
[Claire Rinato wakes up in a hospital bed and sees Detective Fin Tutuola reading a paper at her bedside after him saving her from a drug over dose]
Fin Tutuola: Trying to take the easy way out?
Claire Rinato: And if I was?
Fin Tutuola: Then it's too bad I got there in time.
Claire Rinato: I really didn't mean to overdo it. Really.
Fin Tutuola: That's what all Junkies say.
Claire Rinato: You've done your good deed, now you can go.
[Fin looks up from his paper]
Fin Tutuola: Maybe you don't get it, you're in serious trouble, if you don't pay attention you're going to prison.
Claire Rinato: Are you still here?
[Fin looks back down at his paper]
Fin Tutuola: I really can't believe, you know I almost bought it. How you took care of your sister and loved her. Damn girl, you're better than the soaps.
Claire Rinato: You have no idea what it feels like to have a mother that doesn't give a damn about you.
Fin Tutuola: Violins gonna start any minute.
Claire Rinato: Screw you. Lisa was all I had. She was actually happy to see me come through the door. Unconditional love is a rush.
[Fin puts the paper away and comes to closer to the bed]
Fin Tutuola: Give it to me straight. You kill her?
Claire Rinato: No, but I couldn't protect her. Grace was too strong. She told me, that if I didn't keep my mouth shut, I was next.
Fin Tutuola: You tell anybody?
Claire Rinato: I called my grandmother the first time I was alone, but she was recovering from another stroke and I guess she didn't believe me.
Fin Tutuola: If that's how it went down, then it wasn't your fault.
Claire Rinato: That little girl trusted me to keep her safe. How is it not my fault?

[Claire walks out of the station after being released and sees Fin on the street holding a package]
Claire Rinato: How's my grandmother?
Fin Tutuola: She's holding her own. Won't be able to see her till tomorrow.
[Claire sees the package he's holding]
Claire Rinato: What's that?
[Fin gives it to her and she opens it]
Fin Tutuola: Your last excuse not to go to rehab.
[It's the computer-generated picture of her sister Lisa]
Fin Tutuola: No more lame-ass wining about how you gotta get high to remember what your sister looked like.
Claire Rinato: I would hug you, but I can tell you don't like to be touched.
[Fin gives her a card with a name of a place on it]
Fin Tutuola: This is a good place to go to start getting clean. A friend of mine runs it and I told him to expect you.
Claire Rinato: Okay
Fin Tutuola: Don't make me have to come run your ass down, Claire.
[Claire can't help it and hugs Fin]
Claire Rinato: Thanks
[Fin slowly starts to hug her back as he closes his eyes]

Claire Rinato: What kind of a name is 'Fin'?
Fin Tutuola: It's mine.

Fin Tutuola: [to Cabot] Claire's on her way back to the Tombs. Is there anything we can do to help her?
ADA Alexandra Cabot: No, she's going to prison. With her history of violent rages, the jury's going to believe that she is guilty.
Fin Tutuola: That's what you're going with? She did it 'cause you can sell it?
ADA Alexandra Cabot: I'm not railroading her.
Fin Tutuola: You just need a win to get the boss out of your ass.
ADA Alexandra Cabot: You seem to have done a 180 all of a sudden.
Fin Tutuola: Excuse me?
Donald Cragen: Alex, if Claire killed her sister, she wouldn't have taken the finger after all those years.
ADA Alexandra Cabot: Well, I might be able to sell that if she had turned her mother in or asked for help or told someone.
Fin Tutuola: She did tell somebody. She told Grandma. Grace had three kids. Two are dead. Now I don't like those odds, do you?


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: No Surrender (#18.12)" (2017)
Olivia Benson: Fin, what do we got?
Odafin Tutuola: Vic's name is Beth Williams. That jogger found her. She's in bad shape. She can barely talk.
Olivia Benson: You said she was sexually assaulted?
Odafin Tutuola: It looked that way. Her skirt was torn, her underwear was pulled down. She had blunt force trauma to the back of the head.
Olivia Benson: And what else do we know about her?
Odafin Tutuola: Uni found her military ID. She's a captain in the United States Army.
Olivia Benson: You're kidding me.
Odafin Tutuola: I looked her up.
[handing her his phone]
Odafin Tutuola: She's a Ranger; best of the best. That's why I called you, Liv. I thought you'd want to be early on this.
Olivia Benson: "Captain Beth Williams, 26. Born and raised in Queens. First woman to graduate Ranger school. Three tours in Iraq. Earned a Silver Star." So a local girl makes good, and this is her welcome home present.

Odafin Tutuola: Captain Williams. I know how tough you are. I was a Ranger also.
Captain Beth Williams: Sua sponte.
Odafin Tutuola: Back at you. But like we both know, every soldier needs a little R&R. Why don't you stay another day? Read a book, watch TV. It can't hurt.
Captain Beth Williams: Thank you, but my mom needs me. And with all due respect, hanging out in a hospital isn't my idea of R&R.
Odafin Tutuola: [Beth leaves] She's hardcore.
Olivia Benson: Yeah, agreed. You don't think it's odd that she didn't ask us more about Cook? She didn't even ask us his name. She didn't even ask if we were going to arrest him.
Odafin Tutuola: Well, see, if she asks about her assailant, she's admitting she let it happen.

Olivia Benson: So, Captain Williams IDed Gary Cook. Let's charge him.
Amanda Rollins: Love to, trust me, but we got a problem.
Dominick Carisi Jr.: Two problems, actually. Both are big.
Olivia Benson: Awesome. Who wants to go first?
Amanda Rollins: Well, turns out that Gary Cook's grandma lives at the St. James Assisted Living Facility. And I... I talked to two witnesses that put him there. They have a sign-in sheet.
Odafin Tutuola: His grandma? You're kidding.
Amanda Rollins: No. And look at the sign-in time.
Olivia Benson: 4:50 a.m. So where is this?
Amanda Rollins: It's in Yonkers. It's at the... the corner of Ashburton Avenue and North Broadway.
Olivia Benson: So Captain Williams was assaulted between 4:30 and 5:00.
Amanda Rollins: At 207th Street.
Odafin Tutuola: It takes twenty minutes to get to that part of Yonkers in a car or train.
Olivia Benson: What's the other problem?
Dominick Carisi Jr.: This. This is surveillance footage from an auto glass shop on 203rd Street the night of the assault. Now, there's Beth, all right? She's walking out of the fight club warehouse.
Olivia Benson: Right, and there's Gary Cook coming in.
Dominick Carisi Jr.: Right, right, right, and he starts to follow her.
Olivia Benson: Right, which syncs up with Captain Williams' story. Okay, she's about to shove him, right?
Dominick Carisi Jr.: No. Not exactly. He shakes her hand. He walks the other way, just like he said.
Odafin Tutuola: Cook's telling the truth.
Olivia Benson: Which means that Captain Williams isn't.

Odafin Tutuola: How's Captain Williams doing?
Olivia Benson: Well, she's coming around, but this is really tough for her. I mean, we don't see a lot of victims that are decorated war heroes.
Odafin Tutuola: Yeah, she's used to being the aggressor. That's part of our creed. Rangers lead the way.
Olivia Benson: That's why she's really struggling.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Psycho/Therapist (#15.10)" (2014)
Donald Cragen: [to the SVU squad] These next few weeks are going to be stressful for Olivia and for us.
Nick Amaro: Lewis has some stones, putting her through this.
Amanda Rollins: He can't really think he's gonna get away with it again.
Rafael Barba: He's five for five. That breeds hubris.
Odafin Tutuola: We should have shot him when we got there.
[everyone looks at him]
Odafin Tutuola: Hey, we were all thinking it.

Amanda Rollins: Nick, I know we went at it. I probably said some things you misinterpreted.
Nick Amaro: Oh, I misinterpreted?
Odafin Tutuola: She's saying she's sorry. Right, Amanda?
Amanda Rollins: I'm sorry.

Odafin Tutuola: [to Barba] Counselor, don't mess this one up.
Rafael Barba: I was gonna tell you the same thing.

Rafael Barba: [to the detectives] Eating together across from the courthouse when he's accusing you of conspiring against him?
Odafin Tutuola: We're just having dinner, Counselor.
Rafael Barba: Get it to go.

Olivia Benson: Somebody win the lottery?
Amanda Rollins: Sort of. Carisi passed the bar.
Olivia Benson: Carisi, congratulations.
Dominick Carisi, Jr.: Thank you.
Olivia Benson: Does that mean you're leaving, too?
Dominick Carisi, Jr.: What? No.
Odafin Tutuola: What do you mean "too"?
Olivia Benson: Dodds is going to Joint Terrorism. This is his last week.

Charisse McCabe: Until today, Gary just... would make me go down on him, but I said I didn't want to do that anymore; I was back with my boyfriend. He got mad. He hit me. And then he raped me.
Olivia Benson: How many times did this happen?
Charisse McCabe: I don't keep count. At least once a week since I got out. I'm on his route. I thought it was bad enough when I was inside.
Odafin Tutuola: Did he assault you in Rikers?
Charisse McCabe: He never hurt me, but when he'd take me back from a visit, he'd make a stop in the chapel.
Odafin Tutuola: There are no cameras there.
Charisse McCabe: He knows what he's doing. He'd say "You do me a favor, I do you one."
Olivia Benson: Meaning?
Charisse McCabe: Meaning I get to see my kids. Don't get stripped searched, thrown into solitary. Don't get my teeth knocked in.
Olivia Benson: Did you report this?
Charisse McCabe: In Rikers? The COs and the gangs run that place. Every female inmate there knows that. Every time he'd do me, he'd say "Cry all you want, but you're just a broke, black crack whore. Who's gonna believe you?".
Olivia Benson: I do, Charisse.

Odafin Tutuola: You want to spend your last week at Rikers?
Mike Dodds: I'm not coasting out. I'll put in my time to the end.
Olivia Benson: What, are you trying to make me miss you now that you're already gone?
Mike Dodds: I'm just doing my job.

Olivia Benson: I know that it seems like I'm just someone else coming into your life to take control.
Charisse McCabe: No, I don't care about you. I don't care about me. I don't care about any of this.
Odafin Tutuola: But you do care about your daughters.
Olivia Benson: You keep saying that your life is over, that Munson owns you. I don't want that to be true for you, Charisse. Do you want those two little girls growing up to think there's no chance? Or do you want them growing up and seeing their mother fight?


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Conned (#11.19)" (2010)
Odafin Tutuola: Come on, man. Answer your e-mail. Have a Twitter addiction.

Odafin Tutuola: [to Ken] Are you crazy?
Ken Randall: No, are you? What the hell?
Odafin Tutuola: You looked me dead in the eyes this morning and told me you hadn't seen Andrew in days.
Ken Randall: I didn't lie. I said Andrew hadn't been to the shelter in days.
Odafin Tutuola: This is Andrew's computer. He was here in your home. The new home that you didn't bother to tell me about.
Ken Randall: I moved in with my boyfriend.
Odafin Tutuola: What, are you banging this kid?
Ken Randall: What?
Odafin Tutuola: He's a minor. If you've crossed some sort of line, please tell me. I don't want to have to arrest my own damn son.
Ken Randall: That's what you think. I'm gay, so I must be a sexual predator. Why not just ask me if I recruit little boys and convert them? Andrew is straight.
Odafin Tutuola: Yeah, right. His best friend is a gay hustler.
Ken Randall: I know this may be hard for you to comprehend, but straight men do have gay male friends.

Ken Randall: [to Fin] I found Andrew waiting on the stoop when I got home. Someone beat him up. He was really upset. I brought him upstairs.
Odafin Tutuola: How did he know where you live?
Ken Randall: He's in a group I have over once a week for counseling.
Odafin Tutuola: What, you have street kids in your new apartment? They'll kill you for one of your damn speakers.

Olivia Benson: [after Fin and Dr. Huang find Andrew in bed at Dr. Stanton's home] An underage patient moving in with their shrink? That can't be right.
Dr. George Huang: There's a danger of transference activating sexual fantasies even in an office setting.
Odafin Tutuola: It's the middle of the day and they're both practically naked. She's banging him.
Donald Cragen: Well, that's a serious accusation. Unfortunately, Andrew's not the one making it.
Odafin Tutuola: Captain, he's a kid and she's kind of hot, plus, she got him whacked out on drugs.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Vulnerable (#4.3)" (2002)
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Cause of death said cardiac arrest.
Dr. Melinda Warner: Which means 'We don't know what killed her, but we don't think it was foul play'.
[Munch and Fin look at each other]
Detective John Munch: What would you have put?
Dr. Melinda Warner: I don't know, but I would have mentioned this, an unaccounted for needle mark in the arm.
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: She was in the hospital, maybe they gave her an IV.
Dr. Melinda Warner: She was in to have her knee drained. Hole's in the wrong place.

Detective John Munch: [about Bess] Frightening. When this steel trap starts to rust, call Kevorkian.
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Consider that done.

Detective John Munch: [When Munch and Fin are searching for evidence in the garbage] Damn it to hell! You got crap all over my shoes.

Detective Odafin Tutuola: If I were you, I'd keep my distance. I didn't know he used that kind of language.

Detective Odafin Tutuola: [Fin walks into the precinct to see water dripping everywhere] What the hell happened?
Detective Elliot Stabler: [Grabbing evidence boxes] The pipes. They finally burst.
Captain Donald Cragen: We've also got foundation problems. We're moving to the Command Center outside.
Detective Olivia Benson: Until when?
Captain Donald Cragen: Well, they said a week, but I don't believe them.
Detective Elliot Stabler: Why not?
Captain Donald Cragen: [walking outside of the building with an evidence box in hand as Benson and Stabler follow him] The construction company owner who rehabbed the precincts last year just got indicted.
Detective Elliot Stabler: Fraud?
Captain Donald Cragen: Concrete testing was faked. We may have to underpin the foundation.
Detective Olivia Benson: We can't work out of a trailer for that long
Captain Donald Cragen: We'll figure something out.

Detective Odafin Tutuola: [Fin walks up to Cragen, who is staring down the construction workers, who don't appear to be fixing the precinct] Giving them the hairy eyeball isn't gonna make them move, Captain. They're union.
Captain Donald Cragen: They're wasting time.
Detective Elliot Stabler: So are we if we can't get Micah to talk.
Captain Donald Cragen: Did the D.A. decline to prosecute?
Detective Olivia Benson: He doesn't want to charge an underage abuse victim for murder as an adult.
Detective Odafin Tutuola: The kid's looking at juvenile lock-up or the psych ward.
Detective Olivia Benson: Either way, Goldberg isn't going to let him anywhere near us.
Captain Donald Cragen: Unless we give him something he needs.
Detective Elliot Stabler: Like?
Captain Donald Cragen: Psychiatric evaluation of his intent when he chased his sister down.
Detective Elliot Stabler: The juvenile court's an automatic bench trial. The judge will probably cut Micah loose if we can get a shrink to say he didn't mean to kill his sister.
Captain Donald Cragen: I'll call Dr. Huang and set it up.

Detective Odafin Tutuola: [Fin and Detective Cruz arrive to question some pimps] This all of them?
Detective Erica Cruz: Don't sweat it. Guppies will get the word as soon as we leave.
Detective Odafin Tutuola: [to the pimps] Fact. You are now all my bitches. Fact. Deliver this kid to me

Detective Odafin Tutuola: or get used to living in the tombs. Fact. Until then, no stable's safe, no john's out of reach and most of all, ain't no money getting made.
Anthony Tyrell Jones: Whoa, whoa, whoa, my man. Ain't no need to flex so hard. I just happen to know a sweet young thing that's friendly with the brat.
Detective Odafin Tutuola: Who are you?
Anthony Tyrell Jones: An expediter. Trying to meet the needs of this particular market.
Detective Erica Cruz: Anthony Tyrell Jones. Maggot, nickel drug dealer, pimp. Girls he runs barely hit puberty.
Anthony Tyrell Jones: Told you before, Erica. Nobody wants an old whore.
Detective Odafin Tutuola: Who runs him?
Anthony Tyrell Jones: He's a drop off in a group stable. Whoever runs it keeps their distance.
Detective Odafin Tutuola: Notice any muscle with them?
Anthony Tyrell Jones: Kids police themselves, keep each other in line. Wish I knew how they did it. I'd love some time off.
Detective Odafin Tutuola: Just say when. Listen player, I want this kid delivered to me, unharmed, by this time tomorrow. You don't want to play with me.

Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: [about one of Gots rap songs] You talk about running a drug ring outside of Brooklyn.
Gots Money: Damn straight.
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Well that's funny because I worked narcotics in Brooklyn for 10 years and never heard of your lying ass.

Gots Money: [about his tiger] Rocco's my pet. He never hurt anybody.
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: A turtle's a pet. A damn cat, maybe.

Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: [about Stabler after he returns to work after getting shot] Told you he wouldn't take a day off. You owe me 50 bucks.

[Fin and Rollins are investigating the death of a man who either fell, jumped, or was pushed off of a roof]
Dr. Melinda Warner: After sex, most men feel the urge to urinate, which clears the urethra. He didn't get the chance. And the amount of fluid is consistent with his having ejaculated very recently.
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Melinda, English?
Dr. Melinda Warner: He came, and then he went.

Dr. Melinda Warner: So, it turns out she is lesbian. He is transgender. And we found the murder weapon lodged in his anal canal
[Ohh!]
Detective Olivia Benson: Hey, try the hot soppressata
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: My favorite is still the sherling we found humping that passed out vic
[oh yeah]
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: and he tells me: I though she was dead.
[laughter]
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Turns out he just a little co-fetish
Detective Olivia Benson: Hey guys, uhm, maybe we don't talk shop?

Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: [to Rollins] Who's Nate?
Amanda Rollins: My sponsor.
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: In A.A.? I thought you were in G.A.
Amanda Rollins: I am. He's a double winner.
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: I also heard you weren't supposed to have a male sponsor. Lena said you left the bar with him.
Amanda Rollins: Yeah. He owns it.
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: And he's in A.A.?
Amanda Rollins: I'm a big girl, Fin.

Amanda Rollins: [to Amaro as she goes into the break room] You went undercover to an A. A. meeting...
Nick Amaro: You don't know this guy.
Amanda Rollins: Spying on my life!
Nick Amaro: Calm down.
Amanda Rollins: Calm down? Really? Does that work with Maria?
Nick Amaro: Rollins, look. I went out with some of the other guys from the group. All right, they said Nate preys on women new to the program. They call him a "13th-stepper".
Amanda Rollins: Yeah, I know what a 13th-stepper is. It's not him.
Nick Amaro: So it's one of the other 12 steps to sleep with your sponsee?
Amanda Rollins: You know what your problem is?
Nick Amaro: What's that?
Amanda Rollins: Maria left, you're alone and you can't stand to see anybody else happy.
Nick Amaro: You know, you don't seem happy to me.
Amanda Rollins: I don't wanna take your inventory, but you're jealous, Nick. You are jealous of Olivia and Brian, Olivia and Barba, even Cragen. I mean, you are so addicted to your own misery. I'd recommend help, but they don't have a 12-step program for self-pity.
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: [walks in the break room] Both you guys need to stop. The whole squad room can hear you.
Amanda Rollins: [to Amaro] You're not my father.
[to Fin]
Amanda Rollins: Neither are you.

Nick Amaro: We've got a call
Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Couldn't that come an hour earlier?

Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Do these fools don't think that cops not use the internet?
Amanda Rollins: Well, it did take me a year to teach you how to.
Sergeant Olivia Benson: Come on, guys.

Manny Montero: I want to see Avery. Is she okay?
Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: That's not happening.
Nick Amaro: You let your crew rape her. You need to tell us who it was or you're going down as an accessory.
Manny Montero: I don't know who they were.
Nick Amaro: BX9 won't know the names came from you, Manny.
Manny Montero: No me mientas. Now who's lying?
Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Was this an initiation? You rip off the gang?
Manny Montero: I don't know. They pulled a gun on me.
Nick Amaro: Right, after you called them. Told them where you were, who was in the house?
Manny Montero: You think I wanted this to happen?
Nick Amaro: No. No, I think they raped your girlfriend, made you watch, and you're not man enough to tell us who they are.
Manny Montero: If I say anything, they'll kill me and Avery. She knows that.
Sergeant Olivia Benson: [having entered the room] Well, then I guess she's tougher than you are.
Manny Montero: Who are you?
Sergeant Olivia Benson: I was just with Avery. She's looking at mugshots of your friends right now.

Nick Amaro: Manny called you?
Miguel 'Sandman' Castillo: Said his girl was hot. She was looking to machine.
Nick Amaro: And you believed that?
[Miguel nods, smirking; cut to another interrogation room]
Carlos 'O.G.' Hernandez: Man, that girl was into it.
Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: And you know that how?

"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Resilience (#4.10)" (2002)
Odafin Tutuola: [to Karl Sirett about Jackie] So why'd you run when she tried to kill herself?
Karl Serrit: Those guys had it under control.
Odafin Tutuola: Or you knew the cops were on the way and she'd finger you.
Karl Serrit: Finger me for what?
John Munch: We know you like attacking women. Did you go all the way with Jackie?
Karl Serrit: Who's Jackie?
Odafin Tutuola: The girl you followed into the subway. The girl you raped.
Karl Serrit: I told you I never saw that bitch before.
John Munch: [while reading from a file] "I never saw the girl. I never met the bitch." You should get a better story, don't you think?

Karl Serrit: [while using the restroom] Jealous?
John Munch: No, but I am impressed. I believe the technical term for that is a Prince Albert.
Karl Serrit: Ladies love the prince.
Odafin Tutuola: The technical term for these are handcuffs.
[handcuffs Karl]

James Randall: Just because I have high cholesterol doesn't mean I raped anybody.
John Munch: So it's just a coincidence, Mr. Randall that the medication you take wound up inside Jackie Landricks?
James Randall: Yeah, it's just a coincidence. Lots of guys have high cholesterol.
Odafin Tutuola: Lots of guys don't live next to the victim's bedroom.

Elliot Stabler: You heard Tom Landricks is getting his family back?
John Munch: It gets worse. ACS just called. Jackie's pregnant, wants to keep the baby.
Odafin Tutuola: Daddy's turkey basting worked.

Odafin Tutuola: My ex-brother-in-law got locked up again. Like you say, family's complicated.

Odafin Tutuola: [to Rollins] You didn't have to come with.
Amanda Rollins: It was either you or the morgue driver.

Odafin Tutuola: Look, Liv, I appreciate the help, but I divorced into this. No need to drag you into it.
Olivia Benson: Screw you, Fin. I'm all yours till Christmas Eve. After that, you're on your own.

Odafin Tutuola: We could help you, Adam. This friend got a name?

Odafin Tutuola: Neighbors confirm the rest of the story. Kim screams, the door is kicked in, double tap, Jeff's dead.
Detective Olivia Benson: It's not gonna stop Tucker from trying to take her badge away.
Nick Amaro: But how? There's nothing here.
Donald Cragen: Nick, we got a lot of history with this guy.
Detective Olivia Benson: History? He tried to take my badge away. We're not being paranoid here, Nick. This guy has it in for us.

Amanda Rollins: You know, we didn't have parents that really, um, took care of us, so if something went wrong, I was the one who fixed it.
Odafin Tutuola: And she never had to grow up 'cause you were always there.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Beautiful Frame (#14.11)" (2013)
Odafin Tutuola: [to Olivia] Liv, when's the last time you heard from Jessie Sturgis?
Olivia Benson: Jessie, the single mom who was raped in the Meatpacking District.
Amanda Rollins: Yeah, that was Labor Day Weekend. That still hasn't gone to trial yet, right?
Nick Amaro: The D.A'.s office hated that case. She was drunk and her story was a mess.
Olivia Benson: But she was raped.
Nick Amaro: I'm not arguing that.
Olivia Benson: She knew her assailant, I remember. She was afraid that her boyfriend would find out.
Odafin Tutuola: Okay, her boyfriend, Tommy, last night, Jessie was arrested for killing him. A.D.A. Barba wants to see us now.

Olivia Benson: [while going over the case with Barba] Four months ago, Jessie Sturgis was raped by a Michael Provo.
Nick Amaro: Provo's side, it was consensual sex and she lied 'cause she was afraid of her boyfriend.
Rafael Barba: Tommy Bandolce. The guy that Jessie's accused of murdering last night?
Nick Amaro: Right.
Rafael Barba: That's why Ms. James wants to see your case. She wants background on Jessie. She's also worried Provo was falsely accused.
Olivia Benson: Did she tell you that Michael Provo is a CI for their office, helped make her the DA? She's just looking to protect her own.
Rafael Barba: Didn't come up. Either way, she wants us to open our kimono.
Odafin Tutuola: Excuse me?
Amanda Rollins: She wants to see all of our casework, all the D.A.'s files.
Olivia Benson: So she can build a case against Jessie. I assume you told her no.
Rafael Barba: Detective, there's a protocol among D.A.'s. I can't just say no.

Michael Provo: [as he's being arrested] You really have to do that?
Odafin Tutuola: You still think you're special. Get in the car.

Seth Wolfford III: You. Set me up.
John Munch: I assure you, a local bank was indeed robbed. And a guard was shot.
Seth Wolfford III: Wasn't me and you know it.
John Munch: One of the perps was a six foot tall white man. Makes you a viable suspect.
Seth Wolfford III: That's bull.
Fin Tutuola: That's racial profiling. Sucks, don't it?
Seth Wolfford III: This is insane, I'm innocent.
John Munch: Well, maybe the bank job, but in accordance with the law, Arlington PD ran your DNA through the national databank.
Fin Tutuola: And you're a dead match for one of Chloe's rapists.
Seth Wolfford III: You had no right to take my DNA!
John Munch: Yeah, well, write to your congressman.

Donald Cragen: [about Chloe Dutton] Our girl still MIA?
Fin Tutuola: She didn't show up for school yesterday, but apparently that's par for the course.
Donald Cragen: Well, they didn't even bother to call the parents?
Olivia Benson: Her mother's out of town staying at some fat farm and the housekeeper said that Chloe's staying at her father's this week.
Elliot Stabler: Her father, Phillip Dutton is across town in merger negotiations. His assistant's trying to get word to him, but he swears it's the mother's week.
Donald Cragen: Let me guess, an acrimonious divorce?
John Munch: Is there any other kind?

Seth Wolfford III: [as Seth's residence is being searched] You know, if you'd tell me what you were looking for, it'd save my maid a lot of work. Damn it, this is harassment!
[to Fin]
Seth Wolfford III: Give me that, you low-life piece...
Fin Tutuola: Think long and hard about your next word, Seth. Harassing a police officer's a sure way to get that bail revoked.

Olivia Benson: Anyone get eyes on the perp?
Odafin Tutuola: No video, no one's come forward.
Olivia Benson: Guys, there's a hundred windows up there. Somebody saw something.

Mike Dodds: So at least ten residents saw or heard an assault.
Odafin Tutuola: Everybody thought someone else was calling the cops.
Dominick Carisi, Jr.: Police could've been here in two minutes. Now this woman might die.
Mike Dodds: All right, Carisi, let's take it easy with the witnesses. We want them to cooperate.

Mike Dodds: The café's a drug den. No one saw a thing.
Amanda Rollins: But still, her building... I mean, how many people face that courtyard?
Odafin Tutuola: This one says his window was closed, that one says she went to bed early.
Olivia Benson: Bystander effect. Sometimes the more witnesses, the less help.

Detective Nick Amaro: [about Vicki Harris] This girl's been turned out for two weeks, forced to have sex with dozens of men...
Alexandra Cabot: Relax, we're not charging her and we've got the pimp. We've got enough to put him away on sex trafficking charges for 25 years.
Olivia Benson: What about the johns? What about Tre's friends?
Odafin Tutuola: She is underage, so every single one of them's a rapist under the law.
Alexandra Cabot: Don't start that again.

Odafin Tutuola: [while doing an undercover sting operation] Is that Jake Stanton?
Detective Nick Amaro: Jake Stanton? Oh, don't tell me he's knocking on her door.
Alexandra Cabot: Sorry, who's Jake Stanton?
Detective Nick Amaro: Are you serious?

Detective Nick Amaro: [about Jake Stanton] All right, so he's a little punch-drunk. It doesn't excuse what he did.

Odafin Tutuola: Take a nap, sleepy. I just saw him.

Ramsey Vickers: I want to talk to a lawyer.
Odafin Tutuola: Well, make sure you tell him that was a pre-season tackle. I didn't take you down that hard.

Dr. Merrins: Mr. Vickers suffered toxic shock caused by an infection.
Odafin Tutuola: From me tackling him?
Dr. Merrins: No, from a severe circumferential bite to his penis.

Olivia Benson: [to Fin] When exactly did we become the voices of reason?
Odafin Tutuola: Sooner or later, you have to play all the parts.

Odafin Tutuola: If you ask me, the only difference between a football team and a gang is gangs don't wear helmets and kneepads.

Amanda Rollins: [after learning that Cedric was sexually assaulted] What about the football team? I mean, when are we charging them?
Odafin Tutuola: How about never? He was a consenting adult.
Amanda Rollins: Yeah, with the two female hostesses, not the male cheerleader.
Odafin Tutuola: Yeah, but he was a consenting adult until they took the blindfold off.
Amanda Rollins: Come on, Fin. It was rape by deception.
Olivia Benson: That's not something that we can charge in New York.
Amanda Rollins: Well, how about Rape Three?
Odafin Tutuola: You want us to arrest Ty, the gay cheerleader?
Amanda Rollins: Yes, that's a start. Because maybe he's gonna turn on the guys that put him up to it.
Odafin Tutuola: And there's football players there that were Cedric didn't file charges. Come on, man, I know you're close to the family, but you've done all you can do.
Olivia Benson: Fin's right. Barba told me just last week to pick my battles and this one is, just not a good one.

John Munch: Do you remember Marcie on East 53rd Street? Said she got raped every night?
Odafin Tutuola: Saved by Jesus, who flew in on a rocket?

Lainie McCallum: Oh, my God. Is that the man who raped me? I told you he had one of those pot bellies.
A.D.A. Alexandra Cabot: And I told you that I would come and get you when I needed you. And what are you wearing? We went over this.

Odafin Tutuola: No. Copy.

Olivia Benson: Let's just give it another day or two, see if anything pops.
Odafin Tutuola: He just has to keep his eyes open and act weird. How hard is that for Carisi?

Odafin Tutuola: It's looking pretty empty out there. Is 1PP sending us reinforcements?
Olivia Benson: They sent us Dodds. You didn't seem too thrilled with that.
Odafin Tutuola: Yeah, but then they took him back. I mean, where is he, at some antiterrorist course at Quantico?
Olivia Benson: Yes, for a week. Are you mad that he came, or are you mad that he left?
Odafin Tutuola: Both. I mean... I mean, a lot of things are changing around here. Rollins got a baby. You got a baby.
Olivia Benson: You want a baby?
[Fin gives her a stern look]

[they begin walking to the home]
Detective Dave Duethorn: Two naked women; fluids everywhere; both raped and shot in the head.
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: That's our bread and butter.
Detective Dave Duethorn: So, I guess the two head-shot naked guys with them are nothing special, right?
[they enter and Stabler looks back at Fin as a response to Duethorn's statement]
Detective Dave Duethorn: What do y'think?
Detective Elliot Stabler: Looks like the party from hell.
Detective Dave Duethorn: Dinner party, to be exact.
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: With an orgy for dessert.
Detective Dave Duethorn: Except they never made it to the appetizer.
[points]
Detective Dave Duethorn: Dining room table's still set. And check that out.
Detective Elliot Stabler: [reads] "Happy Engagement; share wonderful lives together." There's no signature; who's the unlucky couple here?
Detective Dave Duethorn: Evan Briggs and his fiancee Melissa Ziman. Other two are Dean McCarren and Regina Valerio. The couple who found them made the IDs. Evan and Melissa invited some grad school friends over to celebrate.
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Not the type of evening you expect to turn into a sexual free-for-all.
Detective Dave Duethorn: I'm thinkin' home invasion.
[walks further into house as he talks]
Detective Dave Duethorn: Doorbell rings, victim opens door, wacko busts in and robs 'em.
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: You got four victims. Got to be at least two perps.
Detective Elliot Stabler: What did they take?
Dr. Melinda Warner: All the victims' jewelry. Marks on the men's wrists indicate they wore watches. The women wore necklaces.
Detective Dave Duethorn: Their wallets and IDs are also gone, along with Ms. Ziman's two-and-a-half carat engagement ring. The couple who found them told me she got it last week. Oh, and there's something else, right, Doc?
Dr. Melinda Warner: [bent down by a body] Both men were beaten, probably with the business end of an automatic.
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Something must have set them off.
Detective Elliot Stabler: Pummeled the men and raped the women.
Dr. Melinda Warner: Not just the women.
Detective Dave Duethorn: Excuse me?
Dr. Melinda Warner: [turns to look at Duethorn] The men were raped, too.
[turns back to the downturned body]

Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Ready for this? We're looking for one perp. Lab found a bunch of bloody footprints all made by the same pair of shoes. And I checked VICAP; nobody's active with a similar M.O.
Donald Cragen: It's hard to believe this sadistic son of a bitch just suddenly popped up on the radar screen.
Dr. George Huang: Guy like this was probably in the system before. Sexual assault, rape, burglary, maybe a few street holdups.
Detective Dave Duethorn: Pretty big step from there to making four people sodomize each other and then whacking them. What set 'em off, doc?
Dr. George Huang: Probably one of the victims said or did something to challenge his masculinity. The sodomy was to humiliate them. Killing them was the ultimate power trip.
John Munch: Is this nut job gonna hit again?
Dr. George Huang: If he is a sadist, he enjoyed it, and he'll want more.

Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: We got six murders in two days. Dumont dies, that makes seven.
Detective Dave Duethorn: We got ourselves a spree killer.

Odafin Tutuola: Doesn't remember what she looked like, what she said or if she was with anyone. And considering what he was snorting, it's a miracle he remembers his name.

Odafin Tutuola: You can call me anything you want, Sean: coon, traitor, raghead, towelhead. I got some words for you: Killer, psycho.
Sean Webster: Hey. I'm no psycho.
Odafin Tutuola: You burned two innocent people to death.
Sean Webster: They weren't innocent! They had to die or they would kill us all.
Odafin Tutuola: Well, who was Mira Elbisi gonna kill? She was working for peace.
Sean Webster: I didn't want to kill her!
Odafin Tutuola: You tore up that innocent woman with that pipe, then you burned her alive. You're sick.
Sean Webster: She said that she was a good American and that raghead said that he was our friend. They're all liars! We had to stop them or they're gonna kill us all!

Olivia Benson: [to Fin after interrogating Sean Webster] You okay?
Odafin Tutuola: I'll take words anytime over being raped with a pipe.
Olivia Benson: You've got thicker skin than me.
Odafin Tutuola: Couple of hundred years, races will be so mixed up it won't matter. No one will know what color anyone is. He got to you?
Olivia Benson: A little. He thought he'd rattle me by calling me an Arab, but the truth is, I don't know anything about my father. Race and color are the least of my questions.

Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Where's your son?
Alminia Aguilar: In bed with your mama!

Lieutenant Declan Murphy: Simon Wilkes admitted he threw the first punch at Amaro, instigating the fight.
Amanda Rollins: You're kidding.
Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: So he's coming back?
Lieutenant Declan Murphy: Well, Amaro and his lawyer are with the D.A. right now. Whether he comes back to SVU or not is up in the air.
Olivia Benson: Up in the air? I know that you have hooks at 1PP. You tell them that this is not who he is.
Lieutenant Declan Murphy: It isn't? He came after me when I was undercover, sucker punched me on the street. Now I'm not gonna shank him, but I'm not helping him either. Every favor you use, you owe six more and I'm not wasting one on this guy.

Odafin Tutuola: [to one of Brianna Lewis' neighbors] Woman had a freaking baby across the hall and you don't hear that?
Neighbor #2: I don't know. She was a quiet girl.
Odafin Tutuola: No woman's quiet during childbirth.

Odafin Tutuola: Phone line works. She could've called for help.
John Munch: Well, killers don't usually encourage that.

John Munch: [to Fin] You ever think of investing in a restaurant or bar?
Odafin Tutuola: With your track record? No way. I heard about that dive of yours in Baltimore.
Trevor Langan: [to Munch and Fin] I'd stay away from the food and beverage industry. If you're looking for a good tax shelter...
John Munch: Can you make it any more obvious that you're talking to us?


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Popular (#3.16)" (2002)
Odafin Tutuola: I hate talking to kids this age.
Det. John Munch: That's because you can't smack them if they give you lip.
Odafin Tutuola: Who says I can't?

Odafin Tutuola: You know I'm gonna smack you, right?

Mia Kessler: [When Fin is looking through Mia's room] Hey, you can't do that without a warrant.
John Munch: Yes, he can. Probable cause is defined as reasonable knowledge of a criminal act.
Odafin Tutuola: See, the longer you stall, the more time I have to find your stash and when I find it, I'm taking you in. You're not going to juvie, sweet pea.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Terrorized (#18.1)" (2016)
Dominick Carisi, Jr.: Hey, lieu, bad news. The, uh... older woman in the bicycle accident, she didn't make it.
Amanda Rollins: Unis did find a few witnesses in the park that put her and the lost boy together.
Olivia Benson: You get an ID?
Dominick Carisi, Jr.: Rahima Babic. We got a city card with an address in Astoria. No cell phone, but we did find kids' sunscreen in her bag.
Olivia Benson: So she could be the grandmother or a caretaker. Let's just hope there are parents in the picture.
Odafin Tutuola: Nothing on the Glock. It's unregistered. They're tracking the serial number.
Amanda Rollins: We turn this over to the precinct?
Olivia Benson: No, I want to keep it for now. This kid got a gun from someone, so run prints, touch DNA, go to this Rahima's address and see what you can find.

Odafin Tutuola: The lab picked up a partial print off the Glock, a match for Luka Terzik.
Dominick Carisi, Jr.: Yeah, he's twenty-six. He was born in New York. He was arrested in 2014 for possession, but the charges were dropped.
Olivia Benson: Any idea if he's related to the bike victim, Ana, or the little boy?
Dominick Carisi, Jr.: Well, I mean, there is some resemblance. He could be the kid's father.
Amanda Rollins: All we know on Ana is that she's a Bosnian national here on a student visa. We're trying to track down her parents, and we're still waiting on the boy's DNA.
Olivia Benson: We have a last known for Luka?
Dominick Carisi, Jr.: Yeah, an apartment in Queens.
Olivia Benson: Okay, well, I'm not gonna hold my breath, but let's go take a look
Odafin Tutuola: We got it covered.
Olivia Benson: No, I want to talk to this guy myself and ask him why his Glock was in the backpack of a four year old.

Odafin Tutuola: [searching Luka's apartment] Liv. We got a problem.
Olivia Benson: [Fin shows her the arsenal in a closet] Get back. Nobody touch anything.
Amanda Rollins: What are we looking at?
[noticing the writing on the wall]
Amanda Rollins: It's Arabic.
Olivia Benson: Call ESU, Joint Terrorism, and the bomb squad.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Turmoil (#11.8)" (2009)
Olivia Benson: [after a scandalous picture of Nikki Sherman is discovered on the Internet] This doesn't mean that she wasn't raped.
Odafin Tutuola: You think the jury's going to buy her story or this photo?

Harold Moore: Shane said he didn't have any money, but he lied! He had nice things. He had a bank card. The bastard knew I needed to get high! He pretended the card didn't work. I needed that money!
Odafin Tutuola: You sorry son of a bitch. That wasn't even his card. You killed him for nothing.

Odafin Tutuola: [to Harold about Shane Newsome] You took that kid's stuff and left him naked in an alley.
Harold Moore: [chuckles] Why not? He didn't need them anymore.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Savant (#9.4)" (2007)
A.D.A. Casey Novak: What am I looking at putting Katie on the stand?
John Munch: ADD, ADHD, and they have trouble responding to criticism.
Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Sounds like you, Munch.

Pregnant Woman: [to Fin] Has the doctor told you if it's a boy or a girl?
Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Excuse me?
Pregnant Woman: It's so hard for gay couples to adopt. A surrogate's really your only option. I don't get why they think its better to leave kids in the system than send them to a gay home. You two look like a nice couple to me.
[Lake looks at Fin and grins as he pats Fin's right knee]

FBI Agent Dean Porter: You forced me to make a formal complaint.
Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Where you shove that is up to you.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Dissonant Voices (#15.7)" (2013)
A.D.A. Pippa Cox: Consistent, specific details. Seems credible. So we believe Jonah?
Olivia Benson: Jonah was adamant that Jackie did something, you know, "wrong."
A.D.A. Pippa Cox: Did you guys get anything from the parents?
Odafin Tutuola: Parents hate each other, but I don't see either one of them coaching the kid to lie.
Amanda Rollins: The sister, Brooke, she's fifteen. She told me Jonah disclosed to her two weeks ago and she also said that he does make things up.
A.D.A. Pippa Cox: Any history with this guy?
Amanda Rollins: No. Jackie's clean. He's not in the registry, no record, not even any legal issues.
A.D.A. Pippa Cox: What did the doctor say?
Amanda Rollins: She said there were no signs of STDs and sexual abuse is inconclusive.
Olivia Benson: Jonah said that Jackie used a magic egg to tickle him. He didn't say anything about penetration.
A.D.A. Pippa Cox: What do you mean magic egg?
Olivia Benson: [while showing Cox the picture Jonah drew] He drew that purple oval. He said that Walker keeps it with the rhythm instruments.
A.D.A. Pippa Cox: It's enough for probable cause. I'll get a warrant. Call CSU.
Amanda Rollins: CSU? Come on, do we have to make a show out of this?
Odafin Tutuola: Amanda, you worrying about that school?
Amanda Rollins: No. Jackie Walker. He's an openly gay male teacher, he's a celebrity. He gets accused of pedophilia? I mean, the charges may go away, but the stain won't.

Amanda Rollins: [about Jackie Walker] The guy was popular even before he got this "American Diva" gig.
Odafin Tutuola: That's going to change. Everyone loved Elmo, too.

Mrs. Allen: [when Brooke is being questioned by the detectives] After all my family has been through? We will sue the city!
Amanda Rollins: With false charges? Just like you threatened your husband?
Mrs. Allen: Oh, how dare you? Why would my daughter do this?
Odafin Tutuola: Because Jackie dropped her as a student.
[to Brooke]
Odafin Tutuola: He told you you weren't good enough for "American Diva."
Brooke Allen: He dropped me, so what? Okay, I know how good I am, I know I'm going to be a star. My whole life, everybody's been telling me that. Okay, it's just a matter of time.
Amanda Rollins: They've been telling you that your whole life? So it must have really sucked when you found out everybody was lying to you.
Brooke Allen: That's not true! Okay, and I didn't do this to Jackie. Jackie did this to me. Mom, don't let them get away with this!
Mrs. Allen: I won't, I won't. Let's go.
[she and Brooke get up to leave the room]
Odafin Tutuola: Ms. Allen?
Mrs. Allen: Yes, what?
Odafin Tutuola: You must be really proud of your daughter.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Ritual (#5.14)" (2004)
[running down a suspect after their cover was blown, Fin grabs him and slams him into the wall, then begins to beat him and punch him]
Fin Tutuola: They're kids, you sick sonofabitch!
[Then Elliot comes in the car]
Elliot Stabler: Fin! Fin!
[He pulls Fin off the suspect and holds him so he won't start again]
Elliot Stabler: Enough! Enough! Off, off, off!

[last lines]
Fin Tutuola: Take good care of them. They're a long way from home.

John Munch: [finding a large crate at a murder scene] I hope this isn't what I think it is.
Fin Tutuola: [pries it open] It's a box.
[lifts the lid, they both turn their heads in disgust]
Fin Tutuola: Call the medical examiner.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Decaying Morality (#16.13)" (2015)
Dominick 'Sonny' Carisi, Jr.: Who wants to call the sergeant?
Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: [points to Sonny] The new guy.
Dominick 'Sonny' Carisi, Jr.: Still?

Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: [after watching Jerome's "confession" to Luke] Okay, he goes on from there. He did give CPR.
Nick Amaro: Yeah, the M.E. thinks Jerome died of a heart attack triggered by his asthma.
Olivia Benson: Luke Davis called 911, so he did not intend to kill Jerome.
A.D.A. Rafael Barba: Legally, it doesn't make any difference.
Nick Amaro: Well, that confession might complicate things.
Amanda Rollins: The nail gun makes that confession completely coerced.
A.D.A. Rafael Barba: Either way, Luke Davis looks good for felony murder.
Dominick 'Sonny' Carisi, Jr.: You think? You do know the defendant gets a free pass on that if he can show he acted under extreme emotional duress.
A.D.A. Rafael Barba: Boo-yah, Fordham Law! The facts are clear. Luke Davis kidnaps Jerome Jones. Tortures him, within an hour, Jerome's dead.
Olivia Benson: [to the detectives] He may be dead, our job is to figure out whether or not he is guilty. So, keep pushing for the DNA and get the security footage from TARU.
Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Yes. And if Jerome is good for the rape...
Nick Amaro: No way a jury convicts Luke.
A.D.A. Rafael Barba: Thank you for your support. If you come to arraignment, keep your mouths shut.

A.D.A. Rafael Barba: Jerome Jones, he still here?
Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: We're still waiting on the vic's statement.
A.D.A. Rafael Barba: What's taking so long?
Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: The girl was intoxicated. Her memory's off.
Nick Amaro: Well, they did find what might be semen on her sweater. We can put a rush on it.
A.D.A. Rafael Barba: On the sweater? If it is his, that's probable cause. If it's not, then he's extraordinarily lucky at DNA tests. He has got ammunition for another false arrest and harassment lawsuit.
Dominick 'Sonny' Carisi, Jr.: One more lawsuit from this guy, we're all working in Staten Island.
A.D.A. Rafael Barba: Look, the Prospect Park Three were guilty. The lab just screwed it up. He's guilty of this, too.
A.D.A. Rafael Barba: Make the case airtight and I'll charge. Until then, let him go.
Nick Amaro: Wait, let him go?
A.D.A. Rafael Barba: He's waiting on a 36-million-dollar judgment he'll likely win. He's not a flight risk. Get him out of here. Politely.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Agent Provocateur (#16.11)" (2015)
Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: You can put a UC in his cell.
A.D.A. Rafael Barba: He's under arrest. NYPD can't have an ex-parte conversation.
Olivia Benson: Not on his case, but if he gives us information about somebody else? That's fair game.
A.D.A. Rafael Barba: Is it? I didn't hear any of this.
[walks away smiling]

Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: What's up, Liv?
Olivia Benson: So, the last thing that Madison remembers is leaving her uncle's apartment. And now he's not picking up the phone. So find out why he hasn't noticed that his niece is missing.

Olivia Benson: So, where were we?
Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Madison lied to her uncle. Didn't even take the theater tickets.
Nick Amaro: And that taxi driver story? I mean, speeding through Times Square after 6:00?
Dominick 'Sonny' Carisi, Jr.: You'd make better time on a goat.
Olivia Benson: Well, something happened to her. The tox screen shows alcohol, Ambien, and Xanax in her system. Now, the rape kit didn't turn up any DNA, but it did find condom lubricant.
Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: So this is what, a hookup gone bad?
Dominick 'Sonny' Carisi, Jr.: Bad enough to dump a body in a suitcase?
Olivia Benson: Carisi, check her social media. Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, all of it.
Dominick 'Sonny' Carisi, Jr.: On it.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Brief Interlude (#14.23)" (2013)
Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: [knocks on door] Santiago Morales!

Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: He is a musician. He's not sleeping and he's damn sure not working.

Captain Donald Cragen: Call Harbor and Aviation back. See whether they can figure out how she washes ashore Gracie Mansion.
Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: No need to use them, Captain. That's why I brought my rope guy, Colin Bennett.
Captain Donald Cragen: So, your rope guide is tide guy?
Colin Bennett: Ropes, tides, paints, solvents. CSU calls me their renaissance man.
Captain Donald Cragen: O.K., Michelangelo.

Captain Donald Cragen: Harbor and Aviation know where she floated in from?
Amanda Rollins: No, they said if we know when, they can tell us where. And if we know where, they can tell us when.
Captain Donald Cragen: That's not as helpful as I'd like
Dr. Melinda Warner: It'd be more helpful if she were dead.
Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Melinda, really?
Dr. Melinda Warner: Rigor, a time of death, we could backtrack.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Waste (#4.8)" (2002)

Fin Tutuola: Then I'd be your boy, John!


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Countdown (#2.15)" (2001)

John Munch: [Fin starts to put eye drops in his eyes] Can I have some?
Fin Tutuola: No.

Adam Clayton Powell: No, I am clean, man and I am living the American dream.

Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: The devil?
Detective Elliot Stabler: Welcome to hell.

Detective Elliot Stabler: You're the one that found the little girl.
Homeless Man: Well Jake and me.
[his cat]
Homeless Man: I see you found the shrine.
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Good Samaritans don't usually build shrines.
Homeless Man: You didn't see the little girl bleeding on the street like that.
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: If you're such a good Samaritan, why didn't you stick around for the ambulance? Got a guilty conscience?
Homeless Man: No, we called it in, but Jake doesn't like crowds.
Detective Elliot Stabler: Why'd you write 'thou shall not murder'? Sounds like a confession.
Homeless Man: That came from Thomas.
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Thomas another cat?
Homeless Man: Dylan Thomas the poet, he drank himself to death. That's not a confession, I just steal from the best.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Harm (#9.5)" (2007)
Jackie Solomon: What about my right to exercise free speech? That bitch tried to tank my college applications.
Robert Soloman: Shut up, Jackie. If you hadn't made that damn video in the first place...
Jackie Solomon: Did you know that the Koran says that men can verbally abuse their wives and beat them?
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Yeah and the Bible says men shouldn't let women teach or talk back to them.
Robert Soloman: Believe me. We know all about it. The headmistress stuck us with mandatory evening classes at the New York Tolerance Center.
Detective Chester Lake: You must be their star pupils.

Jackie Solomon: [singing in video in underwear and a burqa] Come on, Mr. Terrorist, show me you're a man. Slap me around like your good book says you can. Well maybe you're just too much of a ditz. Is that why you blow yourself to bits? Come on, Mr. Terrorist, show me you're a man!

Elliot Stabler: TRW and Equifax both show no activity on that social prior to June 2001. No bank accounts, no student loans, no jobs. All of her credit cards were issued around the same time also.
Olivia Benson: DMV says Livia Tellez was issued a New York State driver's license same month, same year. No prior driving record in any other state.
Donald Cragen: And nobody knew anything about this girl?
John Munch: Neighbors were just passing acquaintances.
Fin Tutuola: Vital statistics doesn't have anything on her or any living relative.
Donald Cragen: We can rule out identity theft. Can't steal an identity that didn't exist until a couple of years ago.
Olivia Benson: Everything that we've found says that Livia Tellez just appeared out of nowhere.
Donald Cragen: What about witness protection?
Elliot Stabler: We checked. She's not one of theirs.
John Munch: Feel free to express your derision and ridicule, but I'm gonna say it: spook.
Fin Tutuola: I'm not ridiculing. We probably got spies from every country all over this city.
Donald Cragen: Uh, before we call in the CIA, let's see if the body can shed some light on who this girl really was.

Eric Lutz: You said she was attacked near my house. I just checked the closest hospital: Mercy.
Elliot Stabler: Yeah, but, you know, she was just a one-night stand. Why bother?
Eric Lutz: I already told you, I just wanted to make sure that she was okay.
Elliot Stabler: You know, someone might think that you just wanted to see how much she remembered.
Eric Lutz: Yeah, of course. I wanted her to remember that I didn't rape her, then I'd be off the hook.
Odafin Tutuola: [as he walks in the room] Keep wiggling. CSU just called from his crib.
Eric Lutz: I didn't give you permission to search my house.
Elliot Stabler: We got a warrant.
Odafin Tutuola: Yeah, and we found blood on your sheets. Same type as Kelly's. Explain that, player.
Eric Lutz: Guys, come on. It was her time of the month. It's not exactly a deal-breaker for me.

Elliot Stabler: Women making porn? That's like the whore on the corner working her way up to pimp. Doesn't make it right.
Odafin Tutuola: Lighten up, choirboy. You don't have to be a perv to like porn.
Olivia Benson: Oh, yeah? Then how come people don't put V for "vagina" next to "Vertigo" on their bookshelves?
Odafin Tutuola: Because they're afraid of being judged by prudes like you.

John Munch: Twelve jurors or six pallbearers. Your choice.

John Munch: [to Todd Symthe about his gambling debt] Somebody pays off your gambling debt and you have no idea who would perform such an act of philanthropy?

Amanda Rollins: Not last night. They want drama. They want fairy tales. They don't want rape, and you saw they cut away as soon as Melanie started to freak out.
Olivia Benson: Did she report it?
Amanda Rollins: Who knows if the producers let her make a call? They don't allow access to the outside world.
Dominick Carisi, Jr.: Yeah, it's like Stockholm syndrome. I mean, with all these headlines, plus the amount of calls we're getting from concerned viewers, including the Chief of D's wife...
Amanda Rollins: We should at least just go and ask a few questions.
Olivia Benson: Okay, so go talk to Melanie, but I'm interested in our reality, not theirs.

Fin Tutuola: I'm not staying in here with all these cancer-causing particles flying around.
John Munch: Stop worrying. As an African-American you're statistically far more likely to die of diabetes, high blood pressure, or heart disease.
Fin Tutuola: Or a bullet.

[Fin comes walks up in a Doctor's mask]
John Munch: What's up Doc?
Fin Tutuola: Not taking any chances.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Chameleon (#4.1)" (2002)
George Huang: I'm not confident with calling the suspect a serial killer.
Fin Tutuola: How many guys she gotta whack until you're confident?

Fin Tutuola: [while working on a case of a murdered "John"] Cause of death was between two and four hours ago... pre-release.
Elliot Stabler: Is that significant?
Elliot Stabler: No, that's just cold.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Clock (#8.2)" (2006)
Kathleen Stabler: [to Stabler] I hate you!
[storms off]
Odafin Tutuola: [to Stabler] Everything okay?
Detective Elliot Stabler: Man, you're lucky you don't have daughters.

Odafin Tutuola: [to Greg Hartley] Come on, svengali. Lay some of that sweet talk on me.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Ridicule (#3.10)" (2001)
Odafin Tutuola: [about Amelia Chase] These day traders live pretty good: short hours, spa days. What the hell is she doing in there?
John Munch: Beauty treatments take time. Mud bath, cellulite dissipation, an exfoliating facial. Time and money. Some women learn early how to waste both.
Odafin Tutuola: Your ex-wives made you bitter.
John Munch: Not bitter, just resigned.

Olivia Benson: Pam Adler was in that bedroom.
John Munch: Which means Amelia Chase is probably the third member of this rape troika.
Elliot Stabler: I'm not so sure he's being entirely candid.
Olivia Benson: He was raped, Elliot.
Elliot Stabler: He's an actor. He's trained to make us believe.
Odafin Tutuola: Three women at the same time, most guys would call that lucky.
Olivia Benson: So we're saying that men are sex hounds and only women can feel violated? That's gender bias.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Taken (#2.8)" (2000)
Det. Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: He lives at 1634 Broadway.
Det. John Munch: Not unless he's one of the nuts lobbying for yet another extension of "Cats". That's the Winter Garden Theatre.
[Fin gives Munch a look]
Det. John Munch: Don't ask.

Fin Tutuola: [taking down a suspect's name] "Terry" as in Terence, "Wilde" as in Oscar?
Terry Wilde: [confused] HUH?


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Girl Dishonored (#14.20)" (2013)
Detective Olivia Benson: It's all about control. I mean, they do their own investigations. If the school decides no crime has been committed, it's dropped. No press, no police.
A.D.A. Rafael Barba: We need to go after the school.
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: And charge 'em with what?
A.D.A. Rafael Barba: That's the great part about being a D.A. I don't have to decide that right now.

Leo Barth: [to Fin and Rollins] Hi, I'm Leo Barth. Campus Security director. How can I help you?
Amanda Rollins: We're here to speak with Lindsay Bennett.
Leo Barth: I'll save you the paperwork. It's Hell Week for the frats. She was drunk, walking on the roof ledge. Good Samaritan grabbed her, but she's fine now.
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Well, we got the call, so we have to follow up.
Leo Barth: Now? She's still pretty stoonad.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Consent (#2.10)" (2001)
Fin Tutuola: A lapdance is a pretty strong signal.

Det. John Munch: Fin and I made friends with a guy in the campus police department.
Fin Tutuola: We did?
Det. John Munch: Nick, the campus dick. Maybe we can appeal to his fraternal sense of brotherhood among cops.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Friending Emily (#14.6)" (2012)
Odafin Tutuola: [to Rollins] You'd think the older sister would look out for the little one.
Amanda Rollins: Huh.
Odafin Tutuola: Sorry. How's your sister doing?
Amanda Rollins: Hurricane Kim? Ah, she says she's taking her meds. My family, it's just...
Odafin Tutuola: You know all families got stuff. My brother says my son's not welcome over to his house on Thanksgiving.
Amanda Rollins: Seriously? Why, 'cause he's gay? He thinks it's contagious?

Odafin Tutuola: [after discovering Taylor in bed with a college boy] How old are you, player?
Meric: 21.
Amanda Rollins: 15 will get you 10, genius.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Hammered (#11.4)" (2009)
John Munch: [to Dalton] If I had a nickel for every dead prostitute...
Dalton Rindell: I never woke up with I've never used a prostitute.
John Munch: Sorry, without gallows humor to cope with what we see every day, I'd go stark raving mad.
Odafin Tutuola: What do you mean, go?

Odafin Tutuola: Nayyar, how much longer you going to keep this bathroom tied up? You're worse than my ex-wife.
Media Tech Anu Nayyar: Someone let a sweet talker like you go?


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Undercover (#9.15)" (2008)
Detective Olivia Benson: Lowell Harris, you're under arrest for raping Ashley Tyler.
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: And the attempted murder of a police officer.
Lowell Harris: You're a cop?
Detective Olivia Benson: Who's the bitch now?

Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Let her go now!
Lowell Harris: Get the hell outta here!
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Police! Move away from her! Move away!
Lowell Harris: She's trying to escape!
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: And you had to drop your pants to stop her?


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Outcry (#6.5)" (2004)
CSU Captain Judith Siper: [Referring to a plastic wrapper] But this is definitely from a four-day-old sausage and egg sandwich.
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: You can tell all that from those little bitty crumbs?
CSU Captain Judith Siper: Nope, from the label.

John Munch: [after it's revealed that Luke Luke Delvecchio made a video of Tandi attending the cadets' party] Tandi McCain is 16, so we've got you for promoting the sexual performance of a child.
Luke Delvecchio: What are you talking about?
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: That word too big for you? Try "child porn."


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Justice (#3.19)" (2002)
Fin Tutuola: Hey good girls fall for bad boys

Fin Tutuola: You have the right to an attorney and if you throw up in my car, I'll kill ya.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Raw (#7.6)" (2005)
Detective Odafin "Fin" Tutuola: [visiting Munch in the hospital after the courtroom shootout] So where is it you got shot?
Detective John Munch: That would be - in the ass. You wanna kiss it and make it better?

Detective John Munch: You know, scientists have discovered there's really no genetic difference between the races. It's only skin deep.
Kyle Ackerman: Jews are the descendants of the union between Eve and Satan.
Detective Odafin "Fin" Tutuola: And who do you think spawned you?


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Valentine's Day (#13.18)" (2012)
Olivia Benson: [about Christine] She said she was tired. I didn't want her to lawyer up.
Donald Cragen: Absolutely. There's still a chance she could be a victim.
Amanda Rollins: Well, from what I just heard, she's lying. She's using present tense, she's mixing tenses...
Odafin Tutuola: It's like she's making it up as she goes along. She's trying to convince us.
Olivia Benson: She said, "we had sex" when she was talking about what the rapist did to her. No real victim describes rape like that.

Donald Cragen: What about the husband?
Nick Amaro: He thinks there's nothing wrong with the marriage that a blue box and thigh-highs can't fix.
Odafin Tutuola: Easier than couples counseling.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Legacy (#2.4)" (2000)
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: [Munch is stuck in a child sized chair] Can you move?
John Munch: Just get me a forklift.

Detective Elliot Stabler: This whole case is like a jigsaw puzzle.
Captain Donald Cragen: Well let's look at the pieces we've got; one suspect eliminated, one cooperating, and one hiding behind his lawyer.
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Picture's getting clearer.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Legitimate Rape (#14.18)" (2013)
Odafin Tutuola: Avery Jordan. Is she the one that wears those tight white jeans on the sideline?
Amanda Rollins: No, Fin, that's someone else, and beside the point.

Odafin Tutuola: [to Purcell] Listen, you want to be a father? The first thing you need to learn is it's not all about you anymore!


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Personal Fouls (#13.2)" (2011)
Odafin Tutuola: My son's gay and he has to deal with that garbage on the streets every day. He's the bravest man I know.

Nick Amaro: I gotta call my wife.
Odafin Tutuola: Short leash?
Nick Amaro: Not exactly. She's in Iraq. It's a seven-hour difference.
Olivia Benson: Iraq?
Nick Amaro: She's in propaganda, you know, just trying to win hearts and minds. She's got eight months to go. If anyone could do it, it's her.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Streetwise (#9.11)" (2008)
Chester Lake: [to the pawn shop owner] Man, you know it's illegal for underage kids to pawn.
Pawn Shop Owner: Hey, a guy gotta eat.
Odafin Tutuola: You need to go on a diet.

Chester Lake: This girl doesn't weigh eighty-five pounds soaking wet. No way she could take down Shelby by herself. Must've had friends.
Big Jerry: Or family.
Odafin Tutuola: What you talking about?
Big Jerry: She said they were hungry. Hadn't eaten in days. That her dad told her to pawn the earring.
Chester Lake: So they're a homeless family.
Odafin Tutuola: And murder's how daddy brings home the bacon.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Silence (#3.23)" (2002)
Gus Yoder: Please! Don't touch me. I'll go where you want... but don't touch me.
Fin Tutuola: Looks like we got us a racist.
John Munch: I'm a Jew. Is that better or worse?

John Munch: Sit down Gus, you're making me nervous.
Gus Yoder: I'm not sitting there. It's disgusting.
John Munch: It's a chair.
Gus Yoder: It's filthy! Think of all the scum that has sat there!
Fin Tutuola: Yeah, you for one.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Loophole (#8.13)" (2007)
Detective John Munch: It's not a weapon of mass destruction, it's an experimental pesticide, Milsted used it on those kids like guinea pigs. These videos are observing the long term effect it had on them.
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Leave it to the prince of paranoia to kick it up a notch, that's out there even for you.

Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: They expect an undocumented immigrant woman who barely speaks English to understand all this?
Detective Olivia Benson: No way, it's written in such legalese I barely get it.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Juvenile (#4.9)" (2002)
Odafin Tutuola: [about the murder victim] So you trying to tell me that Laura Ashley here is some kind of big kingpin?

John Munch: [about the murder victim's planner] Probably a schedule. Members take turns tending the crop.
Donald Cragen: Why the hell you know so much about it?
Odafin Tutuola: Twenty-five years on the job and he's still a damn hippie.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Rage (#6.17)" (2005)
Fin Tutuola: Talk to Sandra Brofey lately?
Detective Olivia Benson: Remember? Your girlfriend from California?
Fin Tutuola: She told us to tell you "hello", then rip your nuts off, and feed 'em to you.

Fin Tutuola: [sarcastically to Stabler, in the interview room with Gorgon Rickett] It's like he's turning the tables or something. Damn, he's like some reverse-psychology evil-genius.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Rotten (#4.13)" (2003)
Olivia Benson: We're supposed to uphold the law...
Fin Tutuola: Your heart's bleedin' all over my shoes.

Fin Tutuola: I would've backed your play.
Olivia Benson: That's why I went alone.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Futility (#4.22)" (2003)
Michael Gardner: I'm so sorry about hitting her. I hope she's okay.
Erin Russ: The rape charges on my client are bogus. And how did he get hurt between his home and the station house?
Alex Cabot: I don't know, how did he?
[Looks at Detectives Tutuola and Stabler]
Odafin Tutuola: He fell.
Erin Russ: Bull.
Alex Cabot: The only injuries I see are Mr. Gardner's torn knuckles from punching Detective Benson in the face, so unless you want to add the assault of a police officer to the list of charges, I suggest you move on.

Odafin Tutuola: [to Michael Gardner's wife after he's been arrested] Your dinner's here. It's on NYPD.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Forgiving Rollins (#16.10)" (2014)
Amanda Rollins: Deputy Chief Patton was my superior officer for six years. He's smart, political. You know the type.
Deputy Chief William Dodds: And personally? You know, any rumors of harassment or skirt-chasing?
Amanda Rollins: He's been married 20 years.
Odafin Tutuola: I didn't see his wife at the convention.
Olivia Benson: Detective Taymor wouldn't disclose until you left the room. Now, have you heard any whispers about their relationship?
Amanda Rollins: As far as I know, they just work together.
Deputy Chief William Dodds: In adjoining rooms?
Amanda Rollins: I'm not privy to his personal life.
Deputy Chief William Dodds: We're all grown-ups here. We know there's a difference between infidelity and assault. I'm asking if Patton is capable of something like this.
Amanda Rollins: You can never tell who's capable of what.

Odafin Tutuola: [to Amanda] You're a hard woman to track down. I had to check half the bars in Long Island City.
Amanda Rollins: I don't want to talk about this.
Odafin Tutuola: I'm not leaving. I want you to tell me what went on between you and Patton.
Amanda Rollins: I was Patton's shiny blonde protege, right? I was smart. I was a good girl.
Odafin Tutuola: Just his type.
Amanda Rollins: And it wasn't it wasn't like that at first.
Odafin Tutuola: And then?
Amanda Rollins: And then my sister got arrested. Check fraud, wire fraud, possession. So Patton calls me into his office.It was late. Nobody was around and he said that we could make it go away.
Odafin Tutuola: Amanda...
Amanda Rollins: It was my sister, Fin.
Odafin Tutuola: Did he force you?
Amanda Rollins: He didn't put a gun to my head.
Odafin Tutuola: So Reese is telling the truth?
Amanda Rollins: Yeah.
Odafin Tutuola: We have to tell Barba.
Amanda Rollins: No. I won't say I was raped because I wasn't.
Odafin Tutuola: You have to let him know this guy is a predator, that he's capable.
Amanda Rollins: But if I do, Patton fights dirty, Fin.
Odafin Tutuola: What about this girl?
Amanda Rollins: Well, she'll get over it. I mean, she might have been sleeping with him anyhow. You know? She'll go back to Atlanta and she'll pretend like nothing ever happened.
Odafin Tutuola: Just like you did.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Blood Brothers (#13.3)" (2011)
Odafin Tutuola: [to Mr. Marais] Wow, usually when a father hears his 13-year-old is pregnant, he loses it.

Amanda Rollins: I thought New York kids didn't drive.
Odafin Tutuola: They don't drive, they're driven.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Pure (#6.18)" (2005)
Det. Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: They being cooperative?
Capt. Donald Cragen: No, it's not looking good. Sebastian's too sharp to slip and Carlene is almost too dim to exist.

[Fin and TARU are going through a "psychic's" computer that Stabler despises and discover that he ran a search on Det. Benson]
Det. Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Who'd he search before that?
TARU Tech Ruben Morales: Uhh... Detective Elliot Stabler.
Det. Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Oh, Stabler's gonna *KILL* Ballentine.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Monster's Legacy (#14.13)" (2013)
Olivia Benson: What about this camp coach?
Amanda Rollins: It's Martin Schultz. He worked in a Clinton neighborhood house. In the summers, he ran open air camp, he took inner-city kids up to the Adirondacks.
Donald Cragen: Did Dubcek accuse him or is all of this inference?
Odafin Tutuola: Dubcek was pretty shut down.
Donald Cragen: So that's a no and if Schultz had a record, you would have told me.
Odafin Tutuola: Like Father Geoghan or Sandusky? You know how it goes. Even when people try to come forward, it always gets hushed up.

Coach Martin Schultz: [to the detectives] Hey! What the hell are you people doing here, huh? Get off my property!
Odafin Tutuola: Got a warrant to search your crib, Coach.
Coach Martin Schultz: This is for my house! You got no business in my shed! This is an illegal search! Anything you find in there will be inadmissible.
Amanda Rollins: You need your reading glasses. It says property, not house.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Closure: Part 2 (#2.3)" (2000)
Kenneth Cleary: [to Munch and Fin outside a train station] What's the agenda here, gentlemen? You trying to make me crazy?
Detective Odafin "Fin" Tutuola: Hell, no. Way too late for that.
Kenneth Cleary: And you are?
Detective Odafin "Fin" Tutuola: The knot in the pit of your stomach.

Detective Odafin "Fin" Tutuola: Street justice is always bloody.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Stranger (#10.11)" (2009)
Detective Elliot Stabler: [Talking into radio] Got a runner!
[Stabler chases Vasko through house, commanding him to stop]
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: [Punches Vasko in face, causing him to drop] We got a dropper.

Detective Olivia Benson: I don't understand how a mother wouldn't know her own child.
Detective Elliot Stabler: Yeah, but Mrs. Hallander didn't recognize this girl until sister Erica saw that tattoo on her wrist.
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Munch, zoom in on the ink. Put 'em up side by side.
Detective Olivia Benson: Looks the same to me.
Sergeant John Munch: Except they're mirror images. On this one, the stem curved to the right; on this one, it curves to the left.
Detective Elliot Stabler: Girl's a con artist.
Detective Olivia Benson: Then why would she try to kill herself?
Detective Elliot Stabler: Maybe she knew the game was up.
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Who's gonna break it to the Hallanders that their real daughter's still missing?
[walks away]
Detective Olivia Benson: Let me talk to Heather first.
Detective Elliot Stabler: Liv, she's not Heather.
[walks away behind Fin as Olivia still studies tattoo photos on the screen]


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Ace (#11.22)" (2010)
Odafin Tutuola: What's your name?
Flossy: My friends call me Flossie.
[flosses his teeth]
Odafin Tutuola: Do you have to do that in front of me?
Flossy: Hey, do I look like I have dental insurance? I got enough problems without gingivitis.

Brett Trask: They sneak in, drop their litter. The little tykes go right on the federal teat and we pay for the milk.
Odafin Tutuola: Spoken like a true racist.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Gambler's Fallacy (#15.17)" (2014)
Olivia Benson: Those two. I wish they just get a room already.
Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Ha. I'll pretend I didn't hear you say that.

Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Whatever you're doing, I want you to stop now. I am not ready for another partner.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Military Justice (#15.8)" (2013)
Odafin Tutuola: [after Amaro was talking on the phone to his ex-wife] Everything all right?
Nick Amaro: A word of advice: Don't get divorced.
Amanda Rollins: Think I'm good.

Odafin Tutuola: [to Lippitt] I'm going to ask you again. Was there a fourth man there with you?
Petty Officer Zeke Lipitt: No. Maybe she had sex with someone else that day. See, this is why everyone at sector is calling her a whore. When we left her, she wanted more. She probably went out and banged one of those Mexicans after.
Nick Amaro: Really. So that's it? That's all you got? You know, I want you to think about what you just said a year from now while you're getting turned out by your cell mates in Attica.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Behave (#12.3)" (2010)
Bill Harris: This is illegal.
Detective Odafin Tutuola: Yeah, call a cop.

Detective Odafin Tutuola: [walking crime scene with Elliot and Olivia] Passenger that got on the bus with Julie saw her stagger out of this alley.
Detective Olivia Benson: Yeah. Blood drops. Leading from the alley to the bus stop.
Detective Elliot Stabler: How fresh?
[looks at blood]
Detective Odafin Tutuola: [looks back at Elliot and Olivia as they walk] Fresh enough for CSU to get a type A-Negative.
Detective Olivia Benson: Oh. Same as Julie's.
[cut to glass shards]
Detective Olivia Benson: Perp must have attacked her right there.
Detective Elliot Stabler: More blood and broken glass. Anybody catch wind?
Detective Odafin Tutuola: Only from the air conditioners. The guy said he heard some cats fighting late last night but he didn't see anything.
CSU Clifton Montgomery: I found something. Hey, Charlie. Get a shot of this.
Detective Elliot Stabler: Last night's garbage?
CSU Clifton Montgomery: Nah. Something much more valuable. Broken bottle of booze.
Detective Elliot Stabler: Same color as the glass shards found in Julie's scalp.
Detective Olivia Benson: [demonstrates with her hands] The bottle's busted like the perp grabbed it by the neck and crowned her.
Detective Elliot Stabler: Or she and another drunk were fighting over it and Julie lost.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Parts (#6.22)" (2005)
Dr. Melinda Warner: Victim's head, right arm and left leg were found in a car.
Detective Elliot Stabler: Well dismemberment's not a sex crime.
Dr. Melinda Warner: This one might be. Found traces of semen in her throat.
Detective Odafin "Fin" Tutuola: Didn't even let her gargle.

Detective Elliot Stabler: You think it should be legal to sell organs?
Dr. George Huang: Why not? You can sell blood, sperm and eggs.
Detective Odafin "Fin" Tutuola: There's usually more where those come from.
Dr. George Huang: You only need one kidney to live.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Devil's Dissections (#17.1)" (2015)
Olivia Benson: Amanda, I don't know what you're doing, but this isn't police work.
Amanda Rollins: I am cultivating a source. Listen, Yates hinted that he might know who the killer is.
Olivia Benson: Hinted, but didn't say. So what, do you have to go back there again and then he'll tell you?
Odafin Tutuola: He's playing you. This guy's a psychopath.
Olivia Benson: Not to mention, Amanda, you went up there without clearing it with me. I'm not trusting your judgment right now.

Odafin Tutuola: [to Rollins] How you feeling?
Amanda Rollins: I'm just tired. I've been taking too many shifts since Nick left.
Odafin Tutuola: You talk to him?
Amanda Rollins: Yeah. Yeah, he's happy. He's doing physical therapy in Laguna Beach and he's got some kind of lead with the U.S. Park Police, so...
Odafin Tutuola: You miss him. Is that what this is all about?
Amanda Rollins: No. I'm pissed off, man. I get grounded and this is my case? I mean, I know more about how Yates thinks than Carisi does.
Odafin Tutuola: Olivia's just looking out for you, Amanda.
Amanda Rollins: Yeah? How do you figure?
Odafin Tutuola: You're good at getting inside these guys' heads. Don't let them get inside yours.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Blood (#6.21)" (2005)
Olivia Benson: Why didn't you tell us, Sam? Did you think we wouldn't believe you if you told us you were attacked by a woman? We know that women can be more vicious than men in sexual assault, especially if the victim is younger and prettier.
Odafin Tutuola: With guys, it's just business. They take what they want: money, drugs, sex. It's all the same. With a woman, it's personal.

Odafin Tutuola: [When Munch and Fin visit Jake Lumet in the hospital] Good morning, Jake. Wakey-wakey.
Jake Lumet: [wakes up to find himself handcuffed to his bed] What? Hey, hey, hey, hey! Hey, what'd I do?
John Munch: Same old, same old. Sodomized a woman, stole her car and almost killed her baby.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Spousal Privilege (#16.8)" (2014)
Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: [to Rollins] Listen, I learned two things in my 15 years here at SVU. One: you can't take this job home to you.
Amanda Rollins: Working on that.
Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Two: you can't take anyone from this job home with you.

Olivia Benson: [about A.J. Martin] Fin, you saw it. He's controlling. His little son was terrified of him.
Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: I was terrified of my mother. When I used to act a fool, she'd beat my ass.
Amanda Rollins: Yeah, I was raised the same way. In the South, you have to pick out your own switch.
Olivia Benson: So now we're making cultural exemptions?
Nick Amaro: You know, my father, he went at me with his fists. It taught me you never lay a hand on a child or a woman.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Protection (#3.12)" (2002)
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: [to an informant] I scratched your back and now I got a major itch.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Class (#7.17)" (2006)
Odafin Tutuola: [interrupting a college class to remove a suspect] Sorry for interrupting. Stay in school.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Disappearing Acts (#4.5)" (2002)
Michael Kerring: [to Fin and Munch] What do you guys do here anyway?
Odafin Tutuola: We catch rapists, pedophiles and murderers.
Michael Kerring: Damn. Well, in that case, I can honestly say that whatever it is, I didn't do it. I am no short eyes, I have never touched a woman that I didn't have to pay for...
Odafin Tutuola: Slow your roll, moron.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Confrontation (#8.5)" (2006)
Detective John Munch: [finding a lead] From now on, I want to be known as the intrepid Detective Munch.
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Not the word I would have chosen.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Closet (#9.16)" (2008)
Chester Lake: A bunch of players have come out: Dave Kopay, Roy Simmons, Esera Tuaolo...
[to Fin]
Chester Lake: Hey, he a relative of yours, Fin?
Odafin Tutuola: It's Tutuola and those guys came out after they retired.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Goliath (#6.23)" (2005)
Koehler: [walking on training grounds] I'd like to cooperate, detectives, but I'm not authorized to release any medical records.
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: We could get both men to waive their privacy rights.
Koehler: Not really the issue. You'd have to talk to the local general.
Detective John Munch: Ah, the wonderful world of military bureaucracy.
Koehler: I hear ya, Detective. I wish I could be more help. Callahan and Myers were both good soldiers.
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Well, maybe you could tell us why Wes Myers only served four months in Afghanistan.
Koehler: Unfortunately, I can't do that, either. And that is to protect Myers' privacy. I'm very sorry.
Detective John Munch: [sighs] I think we're going about this in the wrong way. Now why don't you tell us what you can share with us.
Koehler: Well, frankly, I wouldn't be surprised if this weren't some sort of combat stress situation. A lot of men have a tough time readjusting to civilian life.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Privilege (#4.17)" (2003)
Odafin Tutuola: [about the murder victim] Okay, she's wearing high heels, fancy underwear, dresses like a maid and lets herself into a rich man's apartment? Sounds like an out-call fantasy to me.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Noncompliance (#2.6)" (2000)
Odafin Tutuola: I haven't seen tap dancing like that since "Bring In 'Da Noise."


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Blinded (#9.7)" (2007)
Odafin Tutuola: [to Lake] I never picked you for being soft on capital punishment.
Chester Lake: It's a no-brainer. Death penalty's never been a deterrent for murder.
Odafin Tutuola: Most killers strike once. Animals who rape kids usually repeat.
Chester Lake: Threaten to execute them for rape, they have nothing to lose by killing their victims to silence them.
Detective Olivia Benson: But execute them, they'll never hurt another child.

Executive A.D.A. Sonya Paxton: Don't pass the buck, Stabler.
Odafin Tutuola: Who says their arrangement was prostitution anyway?
Executive A.D.A. Sonya Paxton: Oh, come on. It's the world's oldest profession. I think we've settled on the definition. She got what's in his wallet. He got what's between her legs.

Kev: Great, so we're on the same page. Um, this is the physical address of the last place that the website was logged into and changed. Okay. So that's the best that I can do for you. Okay? So are we cool now?
