Det. Lennie Briscoe: Hey, you did all right in there, sweetheart.
Cathy Briscoe: Don't you get it, dad? My life is over. I'm not gonna be able to get a job. I'm always gonna be known as the meth addict nurse, who stole drugs for her dope-dealer boyfriend.
Det. Lennie Briscoe: Why don't you come and stay with me for a while 'till you get back on your feet, huh?
Cathy Briscoe: Dad, please! Did you hear what I just said?
Det. Lennie Briscoe: Honey, people make mistakes and start over all the time. I did.
Cathy Briscoe: Thanks. But right now, I feel like you made a mistake having me in the first place.
Dr. Emil Skoda: [discussing the alleged rape of a mentally handicapped teenager] She's a sweet girl with an IQ of 65. And the school thinks exposing her to ridicule from normal kids somehow does her good.
Jack McCoy: She understand what she did?
Dr. Emil Skoda: Not in any meaningful way. She'd do whatever it takes to please whoever she was with.
A.D.A. Jamie Ross: Would that be obvious to another teenager?
Dr. Emil Skoda: That'd be crystal clear to anyone who talked to her for two minutes.
Jack McCoy: Those boys are gonna claim the last thing they did in that music room was talk.
Det. Rey Curtis: Lady, covering up a felony is a felony.
Mrs. Davenport: You asked me if Sally was one of the girls and I said no.
Det. Rey Curtis: And you didn't think rape was worth mentioning? What the hell kind of place are you people running here?
Mrs. Davenport: We investigate what's been reported. I spoke with the boys, I spoke with Valerie. They said she consented, she said she consented.
Det. Rey Curtis: She told her sister something different.
Mrs. Davenport: Well, maybe Sally heard what she wanted to hear. She's very protective of Valerie.
Det. Lennie Briscoe: Isn't Valerie the older sister?
Mrs. Davenport: Valerie's developmentally challenged.
Det. Lennie Briscoe: Challenged how?
Mrs. Davenport: She's retarded.
Det. Lennie Briscoe: [exchanging disbelieving looks with Rey] Three boys gang up on a retarded girl and you just say "Oh, okay." What, are you afraid of a lawsuit?
Mrs. Davenport: I'm a guidance counselor, not a cop.
Det. Rey Curtis: So call a cop when you need one!
Mrs. Davenport: When I need one, I will. There was no rape. Talk to Valerie yourselves.
Det. Lennie Briscoe: Count on it.
Moskowitz: We got one shot-up teacher and a parking lot full of shell casings. Two kids admit being in the vicinity. There's a uniform inside babysitting them.
Det. Rey Curtis: You got these cars listed yet?
[Moskowitz hands him a slip of paper]
Det. Rey Curtis: How many shots in all?
Moskowitz: We recovered two slugs from the victim's car, four from the bus, and the one the doctors are pulling out of the victim.
Det. Lennie Briscoe: [approaching] Lousy shooting.
Det. Rey Curtis: Good enough.
D.A. Adam Schiff: [the rape case has been dismissed] Are you appealing the ruling?
Jack McCoy: What the hell was Judge Wright thinking?
D.A. Adam Schiff: He hasn't had a thought since the Carter administration.
Det. Lennie Briscoe: So, Randy, daddy sprung for bail, huh?
Det. Rey Curtis: Stand up.
Randy Baxter: Sure. Beats doing squat thrusts for goofing on Fat Frankie.
Det. Lennie Briscoe: [cuffing Randy and his friends] You're gonna have to make bail again.
Det. Rey Curtis: You're all under arrest for the rape of Valerie Maxwell.
Randy Baxter: You're kidding. No way.
Det. Lennie Briscoe: Way, Randy. You're gonna be doing your squatting and thrusting in Rikers. Let's go.
Defense Attorney Painter: A rape charge requires a victim, Mr. McCoy.
Jack McCoy: A retarded girl is raped and sexually assaulted with a foreign object and you don't see a victim?
Defense Attorney Painter: You have proof the girl's incompetent?
Jack McCoy: Are you kidding? An IQ of 65?
