"Law & Order: Thinking Makes It So (#16.18)" (2006)
Jack McCoy: Even Alan Dershowitz, the Babe Ruth of civil rights, said that under some circumstances, torture is not only justifiable, it's obligatory.
A.D.A. Alexandra Borgia: That's right. To find a ticking nuclear device hidden somewhere in New York City.
Jack McCoy: So it's okay to torture someone to save a million lives?
A.D.A. Alexandra Borgia: There's at least an argument for it.
Jack McCoy: What if the bomb wasn't in New York City? What if it was in Rugby, North Dakota, where only a couple of thousand people would be at risk?
A.D.A. Alexandra Borgia: That's a bogus argument.
Jack McCoy: I don't think the Grants would agree. Let's not forget that Mitchell Lowell kidnapped their little girl.
A.D.A. Alexandra Borgia: Let's also not forget that we have a Constitution. Call me a stickler, but I think we should at least pretend to follow it!
Jack McCoy: And I think that the Constitution should be used less as a shield for the guilty, and more as a sword for their innocent victims.

Randolph J. 'Randy' Dworkin, Esq.: Without Fontana's abuse, my client wouldn't have told him that the girl was on the boat, Fontana wouldn't have located her, and she certainly wouldn't have been in the courtroom to connect him to anything!
Judge Walter Bradley: Please tell me you got something to link him to the robbery, Mr. McCoy.
Randolph J. 'Randy' Dworkin, Esq.: [Jack doesn't say anything] In that case, Your Honor, I move for a complete dismissal of all charges.
A.D.A. Alexandra Borgia: Wait. If we can establish that the police would have discovered Julie Grant's location, separate and apart from the defendant's coerced confession...
Judge Walter Bradley: You'd make my day, Miss Borgia.
A.D.A. Alexandra Borgia: The harbor master informed Mrs. Lowell that the defendant was on her boat before he showed up at her house. I'm sure she'll sign an affidavit to that effect.
Jack McCoy: Once the defendant refused to cooperate, Detective Fontana surely would have interrogated Mrs. Lowell about everything concerning his visit.
A.D.A. Alexandra Borgia: She certainly would have mentioned the harbor master's phone call. Detective Fontana would have followed up, and he would have found the kidnapped child. This establishes inevitable discovery and makes all of the evidence admissable.
Judge Walter Bradley: Thank you, Miss Borgia. Motion denied.


"Law & Order: Criminal Law (#16.9)" (2005)
A.D.A. Alexandra Borgia: [last lines]
A.D.A. Alexandra Borgia: Are you okay Jack?
[McCoy does not respond to Borgia, still wondering why Robert Barnes chose to kill his own father instead of him]
A.D.A. Alexandra Borgia: Jack?
Executive A.D.A. Jack McCoy: [softly] I thought he was shooting at me.

A.D.A. Alexandra Borgia: Arthur gave you the out. You could have handed this case off.
Executive A.D.A. Jack McCoy: Would you let intimidation affect the way you prosecute a crime?
A.D.A. Alexandra Borgia: I'm not talking about intimidation. I'm talking about getting killed.
Executive A.D.A. Jack McCoy: Doesn't make a difference. It's about the law. It doesn't work if we don't make it work.
[he leaves; she follows him into his office]
A.D.A. Alexandra Borgia: Off the record?
Executive A.D.A. Jack McCoy: By all means.
A.D.A. Alexandra Borgia: Trying this case, frankly even standing next to you lately, scares the hell out of me. Enough time, this guy is gonna figure out a way, police protection or not.
Executive A.D.A. Jack McCoy: Okay, maybe.
A.D.A. Alexandra Borgia: That's not reassuring.
Executive A.D.A. Jack McCoy: Honestly, I'm scared to death. Don't tell Arthur. But handing off this case? It doesn't take my name off the list.


"Law & Order: Acid (#16.10)" (2005)
A.D.A. Alexandra Borgia: So, are we done?
Terrence Putney: You mean am I going to file a complaint against Lt. Van Buren? I have two daughters myself.

Jason Corley: I was scammed.
Jack McCoy: Very nicely, I might add.
A.D.A. Alexandra Borgia: And if I remember correctly, you consented to the dismissal that set everything in motion.
Jason Corley: This is your fault.
Terrence Putney: Shut up, Jason.


"Law & Order: Sects (#15.19)" (2005)
Mrs. Shelby: My daughter is very disturbed...
A.D.A. Alexandra Borgia: -and your son is a murderer and potential suicide!
Mrs. Shelby: [stares blankly] your point?


"Law & Order: Birthright (#16.6)" (2005)
Paul Robinette: Miss Borgia. Paul Robinette.
A.D.A. Alexandra Borgia: Oh, I hear you used to have my office.
Paul Robinette: Well, you were probably still in high school. Tell Jack McCoy "hello" for me.
