"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Imposter (#18.3)" (2016)
Judge Al Bertuccio: You wish to present a closing argument, Miss Staines?
Nikki Staines: Yes, Your Honor. Ladies and gentlemen, my client isn't perfect. Truth is, he's not even decent. If he tried to date me, I would laugh at him or I'd punch him in the face.

Judge Al Bertuccio: A compelling closing, Miss Staines.
Nikki Staines: Thank you.
Judge Al Bertuccio: And I'm sure the jury found it persuasive as well. How about you, Mr. Barba? What was your take? Did you find it illuminating, per chance?
Rafael Barba: Your Honor, I stand by the evidence.
Judge Al Bertuccio: I don't care about the evidence. I care about the law, or the lack thereof. You're a talented prosecutor with a bright future, and if I were you, I would take Miss Staines out for a cup of that gourmet coffee everyone drinks nowadays and beg her to accept the plea to a lesser charge, which I'm sure she'll accept, because she's a reasonable woman and knows that her client is a repulsive human being. Judges and prosecutors are supposed to enforce the laws that exist, not the ones they think should exist and when they lose sight of that, they run the risk of getting their pants pulled down in public and having their sterling reputations sullied.
