"Law & Order: Shangri-La (#13.2)" (2002)
Executive A.D.A. Jack McCoy: What confuses me, Mr. Bergan, is that if the bartender actually pressed charges, as a first-time offender, Fiona would have drawn... a suspended sentence, with a $250 fine. Yet you chose to pay the bartender $1,000 to make it all go away. To me, that seems an odd choice. Considering a teacher's salary.
Gary Bergan: Fiona insisted. She told me that a criminal record would hurt her chances of getting into a good college.
Executive A.D.A. Jack McCoy: Sure, that is one possibility. Another is that Fiona was scared.
Jessica Sheets: Well, of course she was scared.
Executive A.D.A. Jack McCoy: Scared that the parole board down in Florida might issue a warrant for her arrest if her fingerprints ever happened to hit the system. That would put a quick end to your game, wouldn't it?
Fiona Reid: I don't know what you're talking about.
Executive A.D.A. Jack McCoy: That's right, I forgot. You're insane.
Jessica Sheets: [standing up to leave] All right, I think we are done here.
Executive A.D.A. Jack McCoy: So insane that you went to Milford, Connecticut. So insane that when you were carded in that bar in Milford, you used your old Marguerite Sampson driver's license. Pretty strange, wouldn't you say? Considering you testified you'd never heard of her.
Fiona Reid: [smirks] You're good.
Jessica Sheets: Fiona?
Fiona Reid: But you see, Mr. McCoy, what I'm good at, what my special talent is, is to make people see what they want to see. And it's carried me this far in life; I doubt it'll let me down with twelve people unable to avoid jury duty.
Executive A.D.A. Jack McCoy: Without an attorney, it might. Fact is, unlike you, your lawyer is bound by a code of ethics. She can't knowingly let you lie on the stand, nor can she lie to the jury in her closing.
Fiona Reid: You think I need her to win? The jury already sees me as a poor, abused, abandoned child. All they're concerned about, all they really hope for, is to save my soul.
Executive A.D.A. Jack McCoy: Until Mr. Bergan takes the stand.
Fiona Reid: Him? As far as they're concerned, he's a child molester. Who's gonna believe him?
