"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Users (#11.7)" (2009)
Martin Gold: You're a screw-up, Enzo. A pathetic loser. You'll come crawling back, you Judas.
Enzo Cooke: I'm clean, Martin. You can rot in jail.
Martin Gold: [to Huang] You gave him lbogaine. You'll lose your license. I'm reporting you.
Dr. George Huang: I already reported myself. Thirty-day suspension of my license. It was worth it.

Detective Elliot Stabler: [about Ibogaine] It can cure heroin addiction in 24 hours and it's illegal.
Dr. George Huang: Because the patent expired, no drug company is gonna make a profit off it. No one will pay for lbogaine to go through FDA trials.
Detective Elliot Stabler: The pharmaceutical industry can make more money treating addicts with less effective drugs. What a bunch of crap.

Dr. George Huang: Gold gets off on making kids do things that will humiliate them. Their self-esteem plummets and they need him even more.
Olivia Benson: A.J. was so enmeshed with him that she actually registered at that motel with his name.
Detective Elliot Stabler: He could ask those kids to jump off the Empire State Building and they'd race each other to the top.
Dr. George Huang: We've got to shut him down before more bodies hit the pavement.

Dr. George Huang: [to Enzo] I'm Dr. Huang. How are you doing?
Enzo Cooke: What does it look like?
Dr. George Huang: You're in withdrawal.
Enzo Cooke: You gotta get me something.
Dr. George Huang: The only thing I can do is take you to the hospital.
Enzo Cooke: No! Where's Martin?
Dr. George Huang: Is Gold supplying you?
Enzo Cooke: Can't you see I'm sick? You're a doctor! Help me!
Dr. George Huang: I can get you into rehab after we go to the hospital.
Enzo Cooke: You don't give a damn about me. No one does. Not my parents, not those cops. Only Martin. Where is Martin?
Dr. George Huang: You're not going back to ASP.
Enzo Cooke: Look, please, just tonight. I promise I'll do whatever you want. Please! I hurt bad. Look, you gotta help me.
Dr. George Huang: It's okay, Enzo. We're going to do the best thing for you. We're going to stop Martin Gold.

Dr. George Huang: There are two kinds of parents. Those who will do anything for their children and those who will pay any amount to have someone else do it for them. I read Enzo's file. His parents are art dealers. They spend most of their time in Europe. They paid more than $1 million to park Enzo at ASP.
Olivia Benson: What do we do?
Dr. George Huang: Send him to rehab. It's methadone now or it's back to heroin.
Detective Elliot Stabler: If I were in his shoes, I'd probably get high, too.
Dr. George Huang: He doesn't want to get high. He wants to avoid the pain of withdrawal. If he doesn't make it through rehab, he'll just go back to heroin and keep using it until it kills him.

Dr. George Huang: [to Martin Gold] What are you doing here?
Martin Gold: I've come to take Enzo back to ASP.
Detective Elliot Stabler: You're not taking that boy anywhere.
Martin Gold: When Enzo's parents enrolled him, they made me his legal guardian. And as his guardian, I know what's best for him.
Dr. George Huang: What's best for him is real rehab, not your narcissistic schemes.
Martin Gold: Don't worry, Dr. Huang. He'll get all the TLC he needs.

Dr. George Huang: [to Tina] I'm looking for Enzo. Have you seen him?
Tina: He left. Martin said he needed to conquer his fears in a special place.
Dr. George Huang: Do you have Enzo's cell phone number?
Tina: No, Martin took his cell phone away. He says he can't speak to anyone during treatment.
Dr. George Huang: Listen, I saw you outside just now with Martin. You should be careful.
Tina: You've got a dirty mind. He loves us. He'd never do anything to hurt me.

Olivia Benson: [When Huang takes Enzo to get treated for his heroin addiction] What you're doing is illegal.
Dr. George Huang: Stay out of this, Liv, for your own sake.
Olivia Benson: Ibogaine hasn't been approved.
Dr. George Huang: Because the drug companies don't want it approved. One dose of lbogaine and he's clean. We're leaving.
Olivia Benson: It's kidnapping. It's conspiracy to provide a controlled substance to a minor.
Dr. George Huang: He's sick. I'm a doctor. I have a moral obligation to treat him.
Olivia Benson: You're an FBl agent who's breaking the law. You took an oath.
Dr. George Huang: First do no harm. That is the oath I took as a doctor and that is what I live by.
Olivia Benson: Even if it means losing your license?
Dr. George Huang: What kind of doctor am l if I don't help save this kid's life?


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Coerced (#5.6)" (2003)
Elliot Stabler: [about Kevin Walker] The guy is hopeless.
Dr. George Huang: He's a paranoid schizophrenic and these cacistis are his delusion. You're not gonna get anything more out of him.
Elliot Stabler: Well, he's got a 5-year-old kid stashed out there somewhere.
Dr. George Huang: And he's decompensating. Any more stress, he'll go into a psychotic break and he'll never talk. He needs medication.
Elliot Stabler: You've got a medical bag. You got anything in there to make him lucid enough to talk?
Dr. George Huang: Yes, but I can't give it to him just to make him confess.
Elliot Stabler: Why not?
Dr. George Huang: Because he's not my patient. I could lose my license. We need to get him to a psych hospital for treatment.
Elliot Stabler: And lose him in the mental health system? We don't have that kind of time.
Dr. George Huang: Well, we don't have a choice. Without medication, he's never gonna be able to tell you what you need to know.
Elliot Stabler: How fast can you make it happen?
Dr. George Huang: I'll make some calls. Any luck, he'll be able to talk tomorrow morning.

Elliot Stabler: It's not coercion.
Dr. George Huang: You pushed Kevin into a psychotic rage so I would drug him and you could coerce his confession.
Elliot Stabler: I did what I had to do to save that boy.
Dr. George Huang: Great. What are you gonna do next? Bash in people's skulls to make 'em talk?
Elliot Stabler: Your way Adam wouldn't have been found until he starved to death.
Donald Cragen: All right, that's enough, both of you.
[to Huang]
Donald Cragen: Did the medication hurt Kevin?
Dr. George Huang: No.
Donald Cragen: Then what's the harm?
Dr. George Huang: Unless a court forces him to, it's Kevin's choice whether to take it. We don't have the right to make that decision for him.
Elliot Stabler: Do me a favor. Stop treating this perp like a patient.
Dr. George Huang: He became my patient the second I gave him that injection.
Elliot Stabler: Do me a favor. Start thinking about the victims here: the kid he kidnapped, the two people he stabbed. They're your victims, Doc. Not Kevin.
Dr. George Huang: You made Kevin a victim and I'm gonna testify on his behalf if this goes to trial which Kevin will win since you handed the defense its case.
Elliot Stabler: How did I do that?
Dr. George Huang: They're gonna make you say that he wasn't rational until he was medicated which means he's not responsible for his actions before then. You get it now?

Dr. George Huang: [to Stabler] I got a call from Novak. I told her the injection didn't harm Kevin and he's right where he belongs.
Elliot Stabler: I'm sure you didn't come all the way up here at this time of night just to tell me that.
Dr. George Huang: No. Martha Davis, age 45. Lived in the room next to Kevin at Jackson Manor.
Elliot Stabler: And I thought I was going to have to go through every obituary on the Internet. How did you find out about Jackson Manor?
Dr. George Huang: A friend at the Health Department.
Elliot Stabler: This friend of yours know how a place like that could run out of medication?
Dr. George Huang: You know, the good adult homes help schizophrenics lead productive lives, but the bad ones, the flophouses, just provide minimum care while their owners line their pockets with government money.
Elliot Stabler: So instead of drugs for their patients, they use the money to buy themselves Mercedes.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Harm (#9.5)" (2007)
Dr. Melinda Warner: So much for 2500 years of "first do no harm".
Dr. George Huang: That's a little black and white.
Dr. Melinda Warner: I didn't realize the hypocratic oath was written in shades of grey.

Dr. Melinda Warner: [about Dr. Sutton] I guess she didn't take the same oath we did.
Dr. George Huang: It doesn't sound like she was directly involved in any torture.
Dr. Melinda Warner: Not directly involved? Why are you defending her?
Dr. George Huang: Sutton is a respected psychiatrist. I've heard her speak on combat-related PTSD.
Dr. Melinda Warner: Well, the problem is, she isn't treating it. She's causing it.

Casey Novak: I just think we're gonna have a tough time trying to bring Helios or Tomforde to trial.
Dr. Melinda Warner: What about Sutton?
Dr. George Huang: She didn't kill Kate or Abbas.
Dr. Melinda Warner: Might as well have.
Dr. George Huang: Melinda...
Dr. Melinda Warner: That woman's interrogation methods led to Abbas's death and God knows how many others.
Donald Cragen: We can't arrest Sutton for something that happened in Iraq.
Olivia Benson: No, but Abbas died in New York. If a reasonable doctor could have foreseen that her methods would lead to heart failure, heart attack, death...
Dr. Melinda Warner: There's a case for criminally negligent homicide.
Detective Elliot Stabler: And you really think a jury will hold Sutton responsible?
Olivia Benson: She taught a loose cannon like Tomforde how to torture a man to death. That not enough for you?
Dr. Melinda Warner: Someone should be held responsible. It's what Kate Simes would have wanted and what Haroun Abbas deserves.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Born Psychopath (#14.19)" (2013)
Dr. George Huang: I'm conflicted about labeling a ten year old a psychopath. But...
Captain Donald Cragen: But?
Dr. George Huang: I've had a chill like that two times in my life... with death row serial killers.

Dr. George Huang: [about Henry] He doesn't have any emotions, he doesn't recognize them in others, he has no empathy. We know that he's manipulative. You usually see this pathology in cases of abuse or neglect.
Olivia Benson: So parents that love him are just not going to be enough.
Dr. George Huang: No, they're not. He's just wired wrong. Now, there's a facility in Vermont that treats kids with these severe diagnoses. My conference ends today. I could talk to the parents about the program before I go back to Oklahoma.
Captain Donald Cragen: And if they're against it?
Dr. George Huang: Then I'd advise that they get a safe room.

Dr. George Huang: Henry's never gonna grow out of this and he can't be cured, but it is to his benefit to learn that he can control his behavior.
Tom Mesner: You mean if he slams his sister's finger in the door, he won't get to play video games? We've tried that, sir.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Hardwired (#11.5)" (2009)
Dr. George Huang: This trial is a sham! You've got a pedophile calling himself a victim, and a victim blowing kisses at her abuser.

Dr. George Huang: The OSL goes a step farther. It claims that pedophilia is a genetically based sexual orientation Iike hetero or homosexuality and that pedophiles are being persecuted Iike gays in lraq and lran. It's despicable.
Olivia Benson: I've never seen you this ticked off before.
Dr. George Huang: Pseudo-science like this insults my intelligence as a psychiatrist and my humanity as a gay man.

Kevin O'Donnell: If you call me and others a pedophile, it's like calling African Americans the "N" word or homosexuals the "F" word. Minor-adult relationships are normal, safe and healthy.
Alexandra Cabot: Then why do you think medicine, psychiatry and the law all recognize that children are not mature enough to enter into a sexual relationship with an adult?
Kevin O'Donnell: I really don't know.
Dr. George Huang: Because it's rape. That's why.
Judge Andrews: Dr. Huang. You know better.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Execution (#3.15)" (2002)
Dr. George Huang: [to Broadus] Tell me about your first time.
Matthew Linwood Brodus: I'm asking the questions now. You tell me about your first time. How do you remember it?
Dr. George Huang: Fondly.
Matthew Linwood Brodus: I'm not asking you.
Elliot Stabler: Fondly.
Matthew Linwood Brodus: I don't have time for games.
Elliot Stabler: It was painful.
Matthew Linwood Brodus: For who?
Elliot Stabler: For her. I thought I'd done something wrong.
Matthew Linwood Brodus: You did. You knocked her up. For all your sweaty fumbling, you earned a lifetime of responsibility.

Elliot Stabler: I know how to interrogate a prisoner.
Dr. George Huang: I know you do, but I doubt you've encountered this level of depravity before.
Elliot Stabler: I've dealt with serial killers before...
Dr. George Huang: Who hunted for short periods of time. They're more psychologically inclined to confess. Brodus hunted for years without detection. He's like Dahmer and Lucas and Bundy. Sometimes it takes years for killers like that to relax their guard.
Elliot Stabler: Look, they all want to talk. Even Bundy cooperated in the end.
Dr. George Huang: Yeah, when you get closer to the kill date they become more pliable, but you gotta remember this is a game. Brodus is holding all the cards.

Elliot Stabler: [When Huang refuses to give Robert Rule a deal] What the hell was that all about?
Dr. George Huang: Procedure. I suggest you get familiar with it before we do any more interviews.
Elliot Stabler: We make deals all the time. You should've heard Rule out.
Dr. George Huang: He doesn't know anything except for background. We'd just be wasting our time with anything else.
Elliot Stabler: Yeah, how do you know that if you don't talk to the scrote?
Dr. George Huang: Because Brodus would never have told him anything substantive. He would've considered Rule beneath him.
Elliot Stabler: You know that for a fact, huh?
Dr. George Huang: I've been doing this for a long time.
Elliot Stabler: So have I. You don't get up from the table until you've seen everyone's hand.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Pique (#2.20)" (2001)
Dr. George Huang: [about interrogating Jason Mayberry] Detective Stabler should do this alone.
Olivia Benson: Excuse me?
Dr. George Huang: [to Olivia] Your man has a problem with women. If this is your guy, he's never going to open up to you.
Olivia Benson: All rapists have a problem with women. I'll sit this one out, but you're not telling us anything new, Doctor.

Dr. George Huang: How many attacks?
Donald Cragen: I've got six pins here with corresponding complainants at locations around the city.
Dr. George Huang: I'll bet there may have been more that weren't reported. He may have re-used the pins as he built the fantasy.
Donald Cragen: Piquerism.
Dr. George Huang: The murder was piqueristic and I just didn't see it. He derives excitement from stabbing women's flesh.
Donald Cragen: Six victims walking in a crowd, suddenly attacked from behind and stuck with hatpins in the buttocks and back. And not one could ID her attacker.

Dr. George Huang: [to Cabot about Jason Mayberry] He suffers from piquerism, Counselor. The knife represents his penis. It is not disposable.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Inheritance (#3.8)" (2001)
Olivia Benson: [Detectives Stabler and Benson want to interview a Chinese woman] It could take hours to track down a translator.
Elliot Stabler: Doc, can you translate?
George Huang: What, you just assume I speak Chinese?
Elliot Stabler: No, I heard you order take-out once.

George Huang: I know that if my sister had dated a black man, our parents would've... strongly objected.
Olivia Benson: So he sets himself up to be rejected not only as a man but as a non-Asian. It's like he's looking for a reason to get angry.

George Huang: You don't hurt people, Olivia. You help them. You're proof that we do have a choice.
Olivia Benson: Or... Or maybe I'm just lucky.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Scourge (#2.21)" (2001)
Dr. George Huang: [about the killer] He comes out at night and focuses his rage at prostitutes and women that he believes to be prostitutes.
Detective John Munch: Just like London, 1888.
Odafin Tutuola: Not Jack the Ripper again.
Detective John Munch: Ripperologists are convinced that his Royal Highness, Prince Albert Victor committed the deeds.
Donald Cragen: And I understand the royal family is still smarting over that, but could we please continue?

Dr. George Huang: [about the killer] The publicity's just gonna excite him more.
Detective Elliot Stabler: I think he's awful excited right now without publicity.

Detective Olivia Benson: [about Daniel Varney] Paula Varney got an answer from All-Atlantic Life. They knew that he had syphilis.
Donald Cragen: Bastards never informed him.
Detective Elliot Stabler: Communicable, sexually transmitted disease. Company's required to report that to the Health Department.
Donald Cragen: And the Health Department would have notified Varney if they'd known.
Dr. George Huang: One shot of penicillin back then could have cured him.
Alexandra Cabot: And these four victims would still be alive.
Detective Olivia Benson: Yeah, if the insurance company had told them! I want their ass.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Goliath (#6.23)" (2005)
Dr. George Huang: [after Callahan talks about the crazy stuff in his head being almost gone] What other crazy stuff?
Officer Tommy Callahan: Like thinking that my neighbors are spying on me. Tapping my phones.
[whispers]
Officer Tommy Callahan: There's something really wrong.
[looks sadly to the left side of table and then to the window]
Officer Tommy Callahan: How's Jamie?
Dr. George Huang: I haven't spoken to her. But... I could contact her for you after we're finished, if you'd like.
Officer Tommy Callahan: [stands up; goes toward window] She doesn't... come to see me. She won't even call. Not that I blame her.
Dr. George Huang: I'm sure she is very worried about you, Tom. Everyone is.
[stands up and goes toward Tom, never breaking contact with him]
Dr. George Huang: What else have you noticed about yourself? The things you did before you were hospitalized that don't make sense now?
Officer Tommy Callahan: Sometimes in the morning when I shave... I put the razor to my neck... and I think... if I could just push a little bit harder, all the way across my throat... it would hardly hurt at all.

Dr. George Huang: I don't think it's PTSD.
Det. Elliot Stabler: Why not?
Dr. George Huang: Callahan reports no change in his sleep patterns or eating habits. He exhibits no exaggerated startle reflex. His nightmares are vivid and bizarre; more like hallucinations. And he experiences paranoia and suicidal ideation.
Detective Olivia Benson: So if it's not P.T.S.D., what is causing all this?
Dr. George Huang: Well, if this were an isolated case, I'd say that he might have developed schizo-affective disorder. Or, it could be organic. A brain tumor, for instance.
Det. Elliot Stabler: But it's not isolated. It's two different guys. What are the odds they'd both come down with the same disorder?
Dr. George Huang: It's next to impossible. Which leaves us with an environmental cause. Both soldiers affected by the same toxin.
Detective Olivia Benson: Gulf War Syndrome has been blamed on everything from chemical weapons to depleted uranium bullets.
Det. Elliot Stabler: Yeah, and the Marines gave me a physical when I finished my tour. I'll be the Army does the same thing.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Fallacy (#4.21)" (2003)
Cheryl Avery: When I was seven, I knew I was different. I mean, every night I'd go to bed dreaming about being a girl.
Dr. George Huang: Well, how did you handle that?
Cheryl Avery: Forced myself to be a boy.
Dr. George Huang: That must have been difficult.
Cheryl Avery: Yeah, I played with G.I. Joes when I wanted to dress up Barbies.

Dr. George Huang: [to Cabot] Any time Cheryl's been violent, it's been in response to a perceived threat.
ADA Alexandra Cabot: Joe had stopped the attack and was leaving the bathroom. The threat was over.
Dr. George Huang: Not in her mind. She feared what those drunken party-goers would do to her when she left that bathroom.
ADA Alexandra Cabot: Boy, you'd make a great witness for the defense.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Care (#3.9)" (2001)
Dr. George Huang: [about Glenn] Agitation, aggression, paranoid delusions. Your boy had a psychotic break.
Donald Cragen: Almost took our two-way with him.

Olivia Benson: So if we follow the game, then Glenn killed Cassie and then tried to save her?
Elliot Stabler: Killer's remorse?
Dr. George Huang: What doesn't track is Glenn identified with the boy hero, not the Gorgon.
Olivia Benson: Wait, what exactly is a Gorgon?
Dr. George Huang: Are you familiar with Medusa?
Elliot Stabler: Glenn's monster's a woman.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Competence (#3.22)" (2002)
Dr. George Huang: Katie, what do you call this?
[points to his ear]
Katie Tolliver: [grabs his ear] Ear.
Dr. George Huang: And this?
[raises his hand]
Katie Tolliver: Hand.
Dr. George Huang: [points to his chest] And this?
Katie Tolliver: [laughs] Boob!
Dr. George Huang: Very good, Katie. You know all your body parts.

Katie Tolliver: I got my baby from Danny.
Dr. George Huang: How?
Katie Tolliver: Kissing, stupid.
[to Cabot]
Katie Tolliver: Your friend doesn't know anything.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Home (#5.16)" (2004)
Marilyn Nesbit: [to Dr. Huang] You see, for me, you're just a short little man with a nasty little mind and you're trying to twist my words and get me to say things.
Dr. George Huang: You think I'm stupid.
Marilyn Nesbit: And you're right, I am for sitting here and listening to you. Now, will you please call my lawyer?

A.D.A. Casey Novak: [about Marilyn Nesbit after Dr. Huang talks to her] How can she be reading the paper as if nothing happened?
Dr. George Huang: Because she has a borderline personality disorder. She compartmentalizes the world, she's always right and anyone who challenges her is not only wrong but her enemy.
A.D.A. Casey Novak: Including her children.
Dr. George Huang: Absolutely. Adam always obeyed her and so he was good. Jacob didn't, so that made him bad.
A.D.A. Casey Novak: So she doesn't really love them?
Dr. George Huang: It's a twisted, narcissistic kind of love.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Conned (#11.19)" (2010)
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.

Dr. George Huang: [to Dr. Stanton] When the paternity test we've ordered comes back proving that Andrew is the father of your child, you're going to jail for statutory rape.
Dr. Stanton: It wasn't rape. We love each other.
Dr. George Huang: You took advantage of a child.
Dr. Stanton: No, you don't understand. Andrew is a man. He is my soul mate.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Angels (#4.6)" (2002)
Dr. George Huang: [about Ernesto being a possible suspect in Jansen's murder] Jansen used his genitals as a weapon against him and José. Cutting them off might be the ultimate protection.
Olivia Benson: That crime scene was a bloodbath and Ernesto didn't have a drop on him. Plus we didn't find any spattered clothing.
Det. Elliot Stabler: And CSU found fresh traces of blood in the shower. So whoever did kill Jansen was savvy enough to clean up after himself. An adult might think of that, but a 14-year-old boy?
Dr. George Huang: I said it was possible. I didn't say I thought he did it.
Donald Cragen: Just seeing Jansen chopped up would be horrific enough to traumatize this kid.

Dr. George Huang: [about NAMBLA] They're pedophiles who claim they can help boys as young as three discover their sexuality in a non-threatening, nurturing way.
John Munch: And they hide behind the First Amendment to spew that crap, but they operate in cells like Al-Qaeda so one group can't finger another.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Dolls (#4.7)" (2002)
Dr. George Huang: Dolls are idealized representations of men and women. They're pure, perfect and sexless. Terry Jessup is like a child who uses dolls to act out his fantasies.

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: Clock (#8.2)" (2006)
Donald Cragen: [about Janey] What kinda guy wants to have sex with a girl who looks twelve apart from a pedophile?
Dr. George Huang: It might look like she planned it, but I think she's being manipulated by someone who wants to mold her into his ideal sex object.

Donald Cragen: [about Janey] This girl is being pulled apart by an overprotective father and an overly-permissive mother.
Dr. George Huang: I think Janey knows what she wants. I think we should listen to her.
Detective Elliot Stabler: Yeah, and let Greg Hartley have what he wants.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Scavenger (#6.4)" (2004)
Humphrey Becker: [to Elliot] They sent in another detective, you broke the rules!
Dr. George Huang: I'm not a detective, I'm a doctor.

Dr. George Huang: I know why you didn't rape those women, it would be like having sex with your mother.
Humphrey Becker: What do you mean?
Dr. George Huang: You targeted women who all had little boys. You told Jeanette she reminded you of your mother.
Humphrey Becker: Oh please, with you people it's always the mother.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Design (#7.2)" (2005)
Dr. George Huang: Why should you get a break?
April Troost: I'm too beautiful for prison.

Dr. George Huang: Do you find tricking people amusing?
April Troost: Absolutely. Mother always said if you're too stupid to see the wool being pulled over your eyes, you deserve what you get.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Damaged (#4.11)" (2003)
Dr. George Huang: [to Missy] Tell me about your biological father.
Missy Kurtz: You read the file.
Dr. George Huang: I want to hear it from you.
Missy Kurtz: My mother died when I was five. They said that's when my father started having sex with me.
Dr. George Huang: What do you remember about the abuse?
Missy Kurtz: It hurt, but as long as I cried, I didn't get hit.
Dr. George Huang: How did it feel when they took you away from him?
Missy Kurtz: At first, I was glad. Then after they moved me the third time, it didn't make any difference.
Dr. George Huang: The Kurtzs adopted you. That must have made a difference.
Missy Kurtz: Yeah, right. The Kurtzs wanted their own kid. Once Rebecca was born, they didn't want me around anymore. They just kept me out of pity.
Dr. George Huang: That's not what they told us.
Missy Kurtz: Yeah, well. People say they love you, but they really don't.
Dr. George Huang: Joey loves you.
Missy Kurtz: Joey loves sex.
Dr. George Huang: He was ready to face the death penalty for you.
Missy Kurtz: But he didn't, did he? He's out for himself just like everybody else.

Dr. George Huang: [about Missy] Her early childhood was severely traumatic. Without immediate intensive therapy, no way she could form healthy attachments. By the time the Kurtzs adopted her, it was too late.
Donald Cragen: So Missy's mad, not bad and Daddy takes the rap.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Juvenile (#4.9)" (2002)
Alexandra Cabot: What I find hard to believe is how a kid as young as Zachary is physically capable of rape.
Dr. George Huang: Biologically, all he needs is enough testosterone to achieve an erection. These days, boys reach puberty as early as nine years old. Add to that an ill woman, weakened by chemotherapy, she's the perfect victim for a 90-pound rapist.

Elliot Stabler: Okay, I got to tell you that I believe Jeremy's version of the events. You know, this kid is more of a danger to himself than anybody else.
[to Dr. Huang]
Elliot Stabler: Doc, you saw both interviews. What do you think?
Dr. George Huang: I agree with you. Jeremy is more easily manipulated. He's desperate to fit in at any cost whereas Zachary is far more calculating. I think he wields a great deal of control over Jeremy and I think he murdered and raped Susan Oestreicher.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Conscience (#6.6)" (2004)
Bureau Chief Elizabeth Donnelly: Jake O'Hara burned himself?
Dr. George Huang: The camp's director tried to explain to Jake's mother that he should be institutionalized. She didn't believe him, she threatened a lawsuit and then she took Jake home.
Casey Novak: He was thrown out of two private schools in Brooklyn for violent behavior and arson. His mom had to move him to Riverdale.
Dr. George Huang: The kid's a sociopath.
Bureau Chief Elizabeth Donnelly: He's only 13.
Dr. George Huang: Well, he has all the classic symptoms. He's glib, he lies, he has no remorse, no empathy, he's narcissistic and he's extremely manipulative. He fooled both of us.
Casey Novak: Even Brett Morton and he's also a psychiatrist. He lives right next door. He never saw how devious Jake really is.

Bureau Chief Elizabeth Donnelly: [about Jake O'Hara] If the boy is mentally ill, we'll send him to a hospital.
Dr. George Huang: Sociopathy is a personality disorder. A lot of shrinks believe there's no cure.
Bureau Chief Elizabeth Donnelly: What do you believe?
Dr. George Huang: You can't grow a conscience.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Perfect (#4.24)" (2003)
Olivia Benson: [to Dr. Lang] What about Samantha Tassler undergoing in vitro fertilization, which you happen to perform? Are we wrong about that, too?
Dr. Garrett Lang: Any OB-GYN who's a fertility specialist could have done that.
Elliot Stabler: Yeah, but she and the other girls weren't wearing any other fertility specialist's infinity necklace and you've got Miss Haggerty here who's got that symbol tattooed on her wrist.
Dr. Garrett Lang: Any questions from the FBI, Agent Huang?
Dr. George Huang: You enjoy this, don't you, Dr. Lang?
Dr. Garrett Lang: I enjoy helping those girls thrive and realize their full potential. Because of you people, we may have to close down the foundation.
[turns to Quentin]
Dr. Garrett Lang: Joan?
Joan Quentin: Unless you're going to arrest me or either of my clients, we're through. Or my next call is to the Internal Affairs Bureau for harassment.

Dr. George Huang: [about Dr. Lang] He's a narcissistic bastard and he's calling all the shots. You saw the way his lawyer deferred to him.
Olivia Benson: I can understand a 14-year-old being taken in by Lang, but not a smart, educated woman like Quentin.
Dr. George Huang: Jim Jones got hundreds of his disciples to drink poisoned Kool-Aid because he had a charismatic personality. Lang uses his to get people like Quentin and Haggerty to love and obey him.
Elliot Stabler: Those teenage girls couldn't be more vulnerable. They're not that attractive. Probably got bad grades in school. They're just social outcasts.
Olivia Benson: So this cult is a place for them to fit in.
Dr. George Huang: And inundate them with approval and affection. It's called love bombing: "You're perfect the way you are."
Olivia Benson: Right, which is what every teenage girl wants to hear.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Shadow (#11.12)" (2010)
Chief of Detectives Muldrew: [to Cragen] Your pet cops finally went off the deep end. Arresting Anne Gillette at her parents' funeral?
Donald Cragen: They were obeying my direct orders, sir.
Chief of Detectives Muldrew: You knew I ordered Detective Ramsey to close his case.
Donald Cragen: I didn't think that trumped a double homicide.
Chief of Detectives Muldrew: This isn't a moment for you to think. Your detectives didn't arrest Anne Gillette for murder. Penny ante witness tampering is all I heard.
Donald Cragen: For now.
Chief of Detectives Muldrew: And you can prove that she's the killer?
Donald Cragen: Not yet.
Chief of Detectives Muldrew: Then why the hell did you arrest her in the middle of Park Avenue?
Dr. George Huang: She's dangerous.
Chief of Detectives Muldrew: Is that your clinical opinion, Dr. Huang?
Dr. George Huang: Do you want me to use bigger words? Fine. She's a psychopath with extremely violent tendencies...
Chief of Detectives Muldrew: [cuts Huang off] Stop showing off. Bring her down for murder and I'll back your play, but screw the pooch and I'm going to let the crap roll downhill.
[walks away]
Donald Cragen: [to Huang] They better crack her or we're going to have a lot of shoveling to do.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Waste (#4.8)" (2002)
George Huang: [metaphorically speaking] I can go to jail for stealing a toaster, but not for stealing a woman's eggs?


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Blinded (#9.7)" (2007)
Dr. George Huang: [to Casey about Saul Picard] He's not a pedophile. He's a schizophrenic. He kidnapped those girls because he thinks they're his sister Francine.
Casey Novak: But will he ever realize that he's the one that beat and raped Sabrina and Tiffany?
Dr. George Huang: It's possible, but it's also possible that he won't remember.
Casey Novak: Right. So we have to wait for his rispiridone to kick in.
Dr. George Huang: If it kicks in.
Casey Novak: What do you mean "if"?
Dr. George Huang: Haldol helped him with his schizophrenia for years until his sister died. It's possible that any medication we give him won't work in times of great stress.
Casey Novak: Are you saying he might not make it through a trial?
Dr. George Huang: Are you actually considering putting him though one?
Casey Novak: Yeah, after what he did to Sabrina Farmer...
Dr. George Huang: You heard what he said. He believes that his hallucinations are real. He thinks that he saved her. He belongs in a hospital.
Casey Novak: I'll take that under advisement.
[her cell phone makes a sound]
Dr. George Huang: Casey, the man is sick. Putting him in prison is no less cruel and unusual punishment than the Feds trying to have him executed.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Redemption (#3.6)" (2001)
Dr. George Huang: Violence is actually soothing to him.
John Munch: The more he maims, the better he feels.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Tangled (#3.5)" (2001)
George Huang: Do you gamble, Elliot?
Elliot Stabler: Only with birth control.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Smut (#10.10)" (2008)
A.D.A. Kim Greylek: Get Morales to clean up the video. We'll release their faces to the media and get IDs for the women.
Olivia Benson: You can't plaster them all over the news. The media's not going to cooperate. They're victims.
A.D.A. Kim Greylek: Are you sure?
Olivia Benson: Did you just watch the same tape that I did?
A.D.A. Kim Greylek: Does it look like rape? Yeah. Does it turn my stomach? You bet, but Lutz is going to argue it was consensual rape fantasy and until we have a woman who says otherwise, we're stuck with his version.
Dr. George Huang: Your perp has found the perfect MO. He can do whatever he wants and not worry about getting caught.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Venom (#7.18)" (2006)
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.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Alternate (#9.1)" (2007)
Dr. George Huang: Tell me about her alters.
Detective Olivia Benson: So far we've seen Dr. Young, a little girl, and a mean Russian.
Det. Elliot Stabler: And I bet she does a great Christopher Walken too.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Prodigy (#3.13)" (2002)
A.D.A. Alexandra Cabot: That is one cold kid.
Dr. George Huang: No conscience, no regard for anyone, but superficially charismatic.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Signature (#9.12)" (2008)
Dr. George Huang: Agent Cooper, did you notice a change in personality In Dr. Tillman after any specific victim?
FBI Special Agent Lauren Cooper: Why?
Dr. George Huang: The profile has a lot of errors and omissions. If i could pinpoint which victim provoked his breakdown, I could start fresh from there.
FBI Special Agent Lauren Cooper: I can't help you.
Dr. George Huang: Well, try, Agent Cooper. The Woodsman is torturing his next victim right now.
FBI Special Agent Lauren Cooper: Don't you think i know what's at stake? I didn't notice anything wrong. If I had, I would have stopped him from killing himself. He was my mentor and I didn't see it coming.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Manic (#5.2)" (2003)
ADA Alexandra Cabot: I need your advice.
Dr. George Huang: ...Lie down on the couch.
ADA Alexandra Cabot: Not that kind of advice.


"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?


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Rooftop (#3.4)" (2001)
Dr. George Huang: [about the murderer] Rape is about anger, but I'm not sure it's the women that set him off. I think following him might have made his anger boil over.
Elliot Stabler: Oh, so Aisha Thompson's death is our fault?


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Fault (#7.19)" (2006)
George Huang: [Elliot went to see Huang after feeling guilty because he went to save Olivia instead of going after Gitano. Gitano ended up killing a boy that Elliot could have saved] In situations like this there is no good choice. Every choice becomes a sacrifice.
Elliot Stabler: Not true.
George Huang: You had to choose between saving the little boy or saving Olivia
Elliot Stabler: Yeah, but she didn't need me.
George Huang: You didn't know that.
Elliot Stabler: [Long pause. Elliot was deep in thought] I wish I didn't...
George Huang: Didn't what... didn't care so much? Elliot that's what makes you a good partner
Elliot Stabler: She made me turn away.
George Huang: How? How did she make you do anything?
Elliot Stabler: [Another long pause] She didn't. It was my choice; nobody else was responsible for it, but me.
[Elliot walks out of the office, looking upset]


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Undercover (#9.15)" (2008)
Dr. George Huang: I developed your prison persona based on a behavioral analysis of inmate profiles at Sealview.
Detective Olivia Benson: I've been using drugs since I was thirteen? And then started muling to support my habit.
Dr. George Huang: Prescription pills, mostly, but you won't say no to the hard stuff.
Detective Olivia Benson: What's my name?
Dr. George Huang: [over scenes of Benson's "conviction" and arrival at Sealview] You're not a recreational user. You're a hardcore drug addict facing withdrawal. You won't survive unless you get your hands on some pharmaceuticals. Abusive father, abusive husband. Just like all the other inmates. You're a target for abuse. Every man's punching bag. You'll have no privacy. You will shower, sleep, dress, and use the toilet in full view of other people. At times, you will feel humiliated and degraded. You're going to see things you wanna stop with every fiber of your being. But you can't react. Ever.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Witness (#11.16)" (2010)
Dr. George Huang: [about Lainie] From everything I'm hearing, she exhibits all the characteristics of histrionic personality disorder. Exaggerated emotions, sexually provocative behavior, attaches too much significance to relationships, excessive concern over physical appearance, always has to be the center of attention...
Elliot Stabler: She's a drama queen.
Dr. George Huang: To the extreme.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Repression (#3.1)" (2001)
Dr. George Huang: Well, technically it's called false memory syndrome, but I call it the power of suggestion run amuck.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Lowdown (#5.20)" (2004)
Dr. George Huang: Olivia, you're not the first woman to sleep with a closeted man.
Detective Olivia Benson: Maybe he didn't know...
Dr. George Huang: Sexuality is very complicated. Just because he was gay doesn't mean he wasn't attracted to you.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Charisma (#6.7)" (2004)
George Huang: What's the first thing you remember seeing after entering the house?
Elliot Stabler: Dead bodies.
George Huang: Can you be more specific?
Elliot Stabler: A bunch of dead bodies.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Dominance (#4.20)" (2003)
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.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Monogamy (#3.11)" (2002)
Dr. George Huang: You know, most animal species aren't monogomous.
Detective John Munch: That would explain my whole marital history.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Futility (#4.22)" (2003)
John Munch: [after it's revealed that Michael Gardner is nowhere to be found] Locals are putting Gardner's mug shot on the 11:00 news. It'll be in the papers in the morning.
Dr. George Huang: But there's still a possibility that he's staying in town despite the danger. He's already shown a propensity for stalking which means that any number of people could be a target.
Donald Cragen: That's why I want warnings out to the judge, the D.A's, every witness, victim, juror. Anybody who set foot in that courtroom that he could see as an enemy.
Elliot Stabler: [answers the phone] Stabler.
Donald Cragen: That includes you, Olivia. This guy's got a hard-on for you.
Det. Olivia Benson: Good. I hope he tries something.
Elliot Stabler: He did try something. Another attack.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Serendipity (#5.5)" (2003)
Dr. Melinda Warner: [When it's discovered during Dr. Newlands' autopsy that he put a tube of blood in his arm]
[about how Dr. Newlands put the tube in his arm]
Dr. Melinda Warner: He could have given himself a local, inserted the tube and stitched himself back up.
Detective Elliot Stabler: Why would he do that?
Dr. George Huang: To beat a paternity test.
Detective Olivia Benson: Son of a bitch. Newlands was the father of Brianna's baby. He put somebody else's blood in that tube.
Detective Elliot Stabler: Hold on a minute, hold on. You have professional people taking blood out of his arm. Wouldn't they notice that?
Dr. Melinda Warner: You only have to roll your sleeve up to the elbow. The scar would've been hidden.
Detective Elliot Stabler: Thought I'd seen everything.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Thought Criminal (#15.23)" (2014)
Lieutenant Declan Murphy: [to Dr. Huang about Wilkes] Will he act on these impulses?
Dr. George Huang: Well, here's another analogy: some people just talk about suicide, but we worry about them when they go out and they buy a gun.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Mask (#12.13)" (2011)
Elliot Stabler: [to Huang] So, Doc, earlier today with Jackson, you were just flattering him to get him to talk, weren't you?
Dr. George Huang: Sex addiction is real, Elliot. Cap Jackson is a pioneer.
Elliot Stabler: We always say the victims aren't to blame. Now you're telling me rapists aren't to blame either.
Dr. George Huang: Most sex addicts are not rapists, but some rapists might be sex addicts acting out on compulsions they can't control.
Elliot Stabler: Every defense attorney we face is gonna be quoting you.
Dr. George Huang: Alcoholics who drive drunk go to jail. So should sex addicts who rape.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Stranger (#10.11)" (2009)
Detective Elliot Stabler: Doc, was she abducted or not?
Dr. George Huang: I wouldn't rule it out.
Captain Donald Cragen: Even with the lies about her field trips to church?
Dr. George Huang: After four years, he's established total domination over her. Heather's programmed to follow orders blindly and without question. The ultimate test of his power is taking her out in public.
Detective Elliot Stabler: Well, that doesn't bother me. I mean, he took her to a church. You got two hundred people there, it's a sanctuary. Why not scream, ask for help?
Dr. George Huang: Because his control over her was so complete she couldn't. I once worked a case in Rochester where the perp took a victim who he had kept for two years to a karaoke bar. They got up and they sang a song together. No one suspected.
Captain Donald Cragen: Heather is safe now. Why isn't she helping?
Dr. George Huang: Extreme Stockholm syndrome.
Detective Olivia Benson: She's bonded with her captor as a survival mechanism and now has this misguided need to protect him.
[her phone rings]
Detective Olivia Benson: Detective Benson. Where are they taking her? I'm on my way.
[hanging up]
Detective Olivia Benson: Heather slit her wrists.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Painless (#5.22)" (2004)
Dr. George Huang: It's ironic, her website gives her a reason to live.
Det. John Munch: Playing God with other people's lives? She's another Kevorkian.
Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Come on, Munch, with all the stuff you' always whining about, don't tell me you never once thought about hanging it all up.
Det. John Munch: I believe life is worth living.
Elliot Stabler: Amen.
Olivia Benson: I'm not sure. If I had a disease like Huntington's and all I had to look forward to was a long and painful death, I can't say I wouldn't think about it.
A.D.A. Casey Novak: [to Olivia] Moredock is going to try and stack the jury with people like you.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Mercy (#4.14)" (2003)
Dr. George Huang: Tay-Sachs is most common among certain ethnic groups, particularly the Jewish community.
Detective John Munch: Same old story. When all else fails, round up the Jews.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Resilience (#4.10)" (2002)
Elliot Stabler: [after Jackie ends up in the hospital due to a breakdown]
[to Dr. Huang]
Elliot Stabler: She's playing with dolls. How do you know she's not faking?
Dr. George Huang: You don't. Not until you talk to her.
Elliot Stabler: Who, me? No, no. No, no, no. No, you're the shrink.
Dr. George Huang: And you're the dad. That's what she's looking for. Another father.


"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Parts (#6.22)" (2005)
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.
