Kathleen Stabler: Are you going to yell at me too?
Bernie Stabler: Me? Your partner in crime?

Bernie Stabler: Remember the time we took your grandfather's fedora to put on the snowman, and his last Cuban cigar?
Kathleen Stabler: Gramps was pretty pissed. I remember you told him to get stuffed.

Bernie Stabler: [telling Kathleen about driving she and Elliot through a blizzard in 1969] We were the only car on the road. I felt like I was driving this magical sleigh. I started going faster. I felt like I was chasing the snowflakes. Your daddy was yelling 'stop mommy, stop!', but I was chasing snowflakes, and I chased them right into a lamp post. I totaled the car, and I broke your daddy's arm.
Kathleen Stabler: He never told me about that.
Bernie Stabler: No, he never told anybody what really happened. You see, Kathleen, there's no shame in making mistakes, we all have, but do you do have to take responsibility for what you've done.

Kathleen Stabler: Grams, do you think I'm crazy?
Bernie Stabler: Do you feel crazy?
Kathleen Stabler: I don't know. It's like the world is full of all these ding-a-ling force fields and every time I touch one, I shimmer.
Bernie Stabler: Yeah, and sometimes just the thought of getting out of bed makes you so tired, you feel like you need a 12 hour nap?

Bernie Stabler: [smiles] That's the price we pay for greatness.

Kathleen Stabler: Dad hates me.
Bernie Stabler: No he doesn't. Trust me. If he did he'd just walk out of your life.

Kathleen Stabler: I didn't break in, the window was open.
